We recently revealed some of the jokes and references in videogames we didn't get until much much later, because we were too young, or stupid, or busy exploding aliens to notice that most videogames are saucier than a Heinz bottling plant.

Here now are your the jokes that flew right over your head like some kind of rude hang glider. Enjoy, and watch out ahead for adult humour, wordplay and possibly mimes.

People are always saying that we never finish a game, so here's a treat: we play a whole game from start to finish, and it only takes 20 minutes because that game is Captain Commando, a Capcom side-scrolling beat 'em up from 1991 that stars a ninja, a mummy, and a baby in a mech suit.

Occasionally you run into an enemy who you can't beat by conventional violent means. Take the non-violent moral high ground though and you're rewarded with victory and more leftover bullets to use on the next baddie. Embrace tranquility and contemplate these times violence wasn't the answer.
