GTA Online’s latest update has brought the Cayo Perico heist to the game and players have been busy soaking up all the new content. However, one NPC could certainly do with a sunny break it seems. 

GTA Online’s world isn’t just filled with real-world players, it is also home to thousands of non-playable characters. These NPCs range from normal civilians, mission-specific characters, police officers, gang members, and hardworking shopworkers. Unfortunately, the average life expectancy for the game’s NPCs is on the low side, particularly when they happen to get in the way of our latest money-making schemes. 

Not only do Heist missions allow you to team up with your friends, but they also offer some pretty lucrative ways to earn money. However, it seems one computer-controlled character has finally had enough of being killed over and over again. You may want to be a little more careful around this valet driver. 

Whether you’re saving up for that next supercar or that shiny new weapon, Heists are always a great way to increase your in-game profits. The Diamond Casino & Resort is one of the more lavish places you can raid as part of the game’s adrenaline-fueled heist missions. It has its own dedicated staff and security on-site, making it a pretty hectic affair if you happen to get caught. 

However, one GTA Online player quickly found themselves at the mercy of the casino’s valet driver after the engaged NPC had seemingly snapped. After flipping the valet driver off the NPC opened the door and proceeded to chuck Ecahill453 out of their own vehicle. 

The valet driver angrily drove the bus away as the confused player lay on the sidewalk, leaving them to reflect upon what had just happened. It certainly not every day you see such a calm character snap, which makes this encounter even more hilarious.  

After watching this comedic ordeal, we’ll certainly be a lot warier around this specific NPC in future GTA Online Casino visits.

A Pokemon Sword & Shield player went viral after posting a Detective Pikachu easter egg that had slipped past many Gen 8 Trainers for over a year.

The Pokemon franchise entered its eighth generation with the debut of Sword & Shield in 2019. The Nintendo Switch title introduced players to new features such as the Wild Area and Dynamaxing.

Despite releasing over a year ago, players are still discovering secrets in the Galar region. Players of the RPG were surprised when they missed a Detective Pikachu easter egg that was right under their noses.

Early into the Gen 8 title, players make their way to the seaside town of Hulbury to face off against Water Gym Leader Nessa. According to a viral post online, there is more to see in the small village.

The neat easter egg was posted on the r/PokemonSwordAndShield subreddit by user ‘aSuspiciousPanda’ who posted a screenshot of an NPC talking about Detective Pikachu.

The image shows the player’s protagonist standing in front of the Hulbury Pokemon Center when a character walking through town says “I hear there’s a Pokemon that’s a great detective!”

While the easter egg is pretty minor, many in the community were stunned that they had never seen the reference in the RPG before. “I have never seen this,” a fan replied. One user exclaimed, “Whoa, never noticed this either! Nice find.” Another agreed and said, “I love this!”

Although Sword & Shield came out over a year ago, surprisingly a lot of fans had never seen the NPC before. According to several users, supposedly the character says different texts depending on the day. So it makes sense why many have never stumbled upon the dialogue until now.

While not the most earth-shattering secret, it does make one wonder how many more references are actually hidden throughout the Nintendo Switch title. If nothing else, the viral post just makes us want the sequel to Detective Pikachu even more. Only time will tell when the adorable Electric-type will be sleuthing once again.
