The Music Box itself doesn’t really offer much, there is a computer containing three mails, behind level one security. In basement, you can put a Biocell in a socket on the wall (corner) to unlock a secret safe, and the building itself is connected with the nearby flat at M3,32 via vents filled with poisonous gas (which when explored will give you +200XP), as well as leading to side passage in/out at M3,34 (which gives +200XP).

Once inside you will notice that the music store is filled to the brim with vinyls, and those who decide to take a closer look will recognise many of these vinyls by their parodic cover art.

Stardew Valley: Secret Weapon

One of the charming features within Stardew Valley is the combat, much in the vain of Rune Factory, which is fitting considering Stardew Valley‘s inspiration by Harvest Moon.

Now in the game there exists a variety of melee weapons, and this hidden one is the best available.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Bethesda’s Skyrim is their fifth instalment in their popular and three time Game of the Year award wining series called The Elder Scrolls. Now Skyrim has been available worldwide since the 11th November 2011 and with its DLC expansions Dawnguard (2012/2013), Hearthfire (2012/2013), and Dragonborn (2012/2013) being released not long after.

So it can be safely assumed that most people have played and completed the game, which does leave the simple question of…What now?

What do you do post-game, well here is a little suggestion, tackle the optional and bonus hidden bosses. Now most players are aware of the The Ebony Warrior quest-line from the Dragonborn DLC, which is available after you reach level 80.

Last Vigil Campsite – Map Location

During which you participate in a fight to the death with an experienced Redguard warrior at the Last Vigil campsite, located high in the Velothi Mountains, so he can receive an honourable death and enter the Nordic afterlife of Sovngarde.

But one bonus boss isn’t really much, and unsurprisingly although he stands at Level 80, he doesn’t place too much of a challenge to experienced players. So arguably he is bit uneventful.

This is why, there is an alternative. While The Ebony Warrior is effectively hand-given to you once you reached Level 80, these following bonus bosses will require some active searching on your part.

So now we shall introduce the three hidden bonus bosses of Skyrim who provide a bit more entertainment than The Ebony Warrior. Starting from the lowest level to the highest.

“I prefer green, as in money.” – Two-Face (Harvey Dent) [1]

Luigi & Coins (New Super Mario Bros 2)

Luigi the brother of the famous Mario, is perhaps best known as the most iconic of second players.

But what is interesting to note is the hidden wealth of Luigi, while he may be somewhat looked down upon as a palette swap of Mario, he is in fact far more successful than his better beloved brother.
