Dead Space
Attachment
There's an achievement called "Live With the Hot Ones" for setting enemies alight with the flame thrower. This is a direct reference to an obscure line in the EA code of conduct. Every employee at EA is contractually obligated to "Live With the Hot Ones". No one had any idea what it meant, so it became something of an in-joke at EA.

Series: Pokémon
In the Japanese versions of Pokemon, the attack "Night Slash" is called "Blade Testing". This is a reference to an old practice that some immoral samurai held to test their new swords. They would wait alongside a road at night for a random passer-by, then attack them with the intention to kill. Night Slash also has a higher than average critical hit rate, which could be another nod to the story, as the passer by would be defenseless.

Super Mario World
Attachment
In the Japanese version, Yoshi can eat the dolphins. This was removed from the international release. It's thought it was removed because of the different cultural views towards dolphins, or simply to make the level easier to finish, as the dolphins can be used as platforms. This was added back into all versions of the Game Boy Advance version.

The New Tetris
Hidden in the code are several rants and pieces of text-art by programmer David Pridie. The rants are mainly about the incompetence of his co-workers, and the text art is of several logos, a Canadian flag, a cannabis leaf, and (possibly) some psychoactive psilocybin mushrooms.

Luigi's Mansion
If Luigi confronts King Boo before capturing all of the portrait ghosts, he will say "I will not give up my favorite decoration, I like Mario just where he is." This is a reference to Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. When Han Solo is trapped in carbonite, Jabba the Hutt says: "I will not give up my favorite decoration. I like captain Solo where he is." Both Mario and Solo being sealed away seems to reinforce this connection.

Hitman: Absolution
Attachment
The video reveal trailer ends by displaying a barcode. The numbers on the barcode teased a date (June 7th, 2011) when more about the game would be revealed. However, the company who made the trailer seem to have overlooked the barcode itself, as scanning the barcode takes viewers to an amazon listing for a bag specifically designed to store sex toys.
