When you are in the loading screen, you can read an extract from John Keats' poem, Hyperion:

These crystalline pavilions, and pure fanes,
Of all my lucent empire? It is left
Deserted, void, nor any haunt of mine.
The blaze, the splendor, and the symmetry,
I cannot see but darkness, death and darkness.

I spotted two references to David Bowie so far :o

Heck talking about TVC-15 as some sort of M12 organization and Byarko doing the "put your red shoes and dance!".

After you hack the [Download Database] computer in the CIA listening post, you can read the e-mails stored on it.
Two of them are discussing how to find a rogue agent (obviously referring to Mike), codename Georgia.
Hint:
Spoiler

Someone told me of a really funny dialog about a rape by a polar bear, and I thought "They played Runaway 2!" ;)

At the start what does the code on Mikey's patient clothes say?

It must be an easter egg as I have seen those codes before in other games, but I do not know how to translate them.

The code on his patient's clothes is a 2D barcode (Datamatrix i think), in order to read it you need a a barcode scanner ;-)

I can tell you what type of barcode it is because i work for this industry

If someone could extract the texture file or get a really clear picture/Screenshot i could try it on the scanners we have in the office.

i can't as i got the PS3 version but i'm sure you PC users can dig around the files :p

In any safehouse, check the gadgets training certificate Darcy gave you. He misspelt it... 'Thornton'.

...then three designers (Travis "Dark Sun" Stout, Matt "M1lflover/Kaji" MacLean, and myself) took over the narrative...

...we broke down the narrative sections into email (95% Matt MacLean) and set Travis Stout loose on the news and at one Hub (Taipei) as well as periphery characters in some of the other locales (Rome). Whenever possible, we set up the narrative team so each designer was married to a specific character (Travis = Stephen Heck, Hong Shi, Omen Deng, for example, and I got most everyone else, plus the dossier and banter for levels)...

Some guy posted the code online, but it can't be read by any app. Here is the link. And btw, it's a QR Code not DataMatrix

You're referring to a smart code./QR Code. But yeah the technical term is Datamatrix.

And you can simply use an iphone (some phones also can do it)

Easiest way would be to point Mike towards the camera, take a screenshot, print it out and then photograph it on the paper because I think screens may cause some distortion.

Don't know if it counts or if it's just a stock sound, but when you use the health stations it sounds exactly like using painkillers in Max Payne 1 and 2.

In the Moscow safehouse, when you look out the window, I'm pretty sure you can see one of the Deus Vult guys standing in the next building.
