Hyperdimension Neptunia
The letters in Nisa's name are the initials of the company Nippon Ichi Software America, one of the game's Publishers. Her overall design is inspired by the Prinnies from the Disgaea series, which is was also published by Nippon Ichi Software. Also, the flat chested jokes of her in the game's story are possibly a reference to the same jokes made in the Disgaea series as well.

Civilization V
While most leaders speak in the language of their homeland, Ramesses II speaks in Fusha (an Egyptian accent of Arabic) instead of Ancient Egyptian. This was likely chosen because the closest possible language, Coptic, has very few speakers, and because pronunciation guides for Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs were never recorded.

Drawn to Life: The Next Chapter
The game's ending was changed when released in the Drawn to Life Collection.

The original ending Spoiler:featured Mike and Heather holding dolls of Mari and Jowee before they are both in a car crash, resulting in both of their parents dying. Heather is severely injured, and Mike is sent into a coma. This suggests that the game took place in Mike's mind while he was in a coma. In the end, Mike wakes up.

In the rerelease, the ending was changed so that Spoiler:Mike simply falls from a tree and becomes unconscious while his sister looks over him. He then wakes up, and looks over to his Mari and Jowee dolls.

Portal 2
There was originally going to be a song featured in the game called "GLaDOS' Song". It was written and performed by Ellen McLain, the voice actor for GLaDOS. She wrote the song for use as an Easter Egg in the game but it was ultimately never used.

The song was actually recorded after the game's release, and was performed by both Ellen and her husband, John Lowrie, the voice of the Sniper from Team Fortress 2. It was later modified by Harry Callaghan to sound closer to GLaDOS' synthesized voice.
