Brayko cites the Duke...he also is all out of Bubble Gum :lol:

I loved how he screwed up the quote just to be grammatically correct. It was so cute. :sorcerer:

Telling us what the barcode translates into would be better. :)


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 ;)



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


Got one iPhone app to read it, it read as a contact, with "AP" as the name. nothing else

Not sure if it counts as an easter egg, and I'm sure most people have seen them, but there's a few funny news reports on TV if you choose to watch it a few times. There's one on a study about the dangerous effects of sugar on young children, and at least a couple more that escape me at the moment.

I've only seen this one once , and it happened to be the first time I looked:
In the Moscow safehouse looking out the bathroom window, the man is entertaining (op is entertained by) a "dancer".
Made Mina's comment about the view quite intresting...

I've looked every time I got back there, but no further luck...

This one I noticed on my second playthrough under veteran ( I do not know if it pops up under other scenarios)

At the very beginning when you first get you PDA and Mina contacts you, you get some static and you can see the face of the NSA outpost gelato shop owner for a couple of seconds.
When put in perspective with what you learn about Mina later, its a nice hint to the fact that the NSA is in fact monitoring your activities from the get go via Mina and your PDA.

When you first meet Steven Heck, in the dialog, when he asks what agency you come from, if you choose to avoid the question or something like that, Thorton says something like "I come from a agency...". Heck then starts enumerating agencies you might come from, among the list he says "Majestic 12", Deus Ex reference!

Just for reference and fun you can generate your own QR-Codes from the Kaywa QR Generator page using URLs, text and other sources selected by using the radio buttons.

Borderlands had QR codes spread through it that had various messages in them.

That's not a Mass Effect reference, it's an emphasized pronoun.

OTOH, one of the e-mail senders in the same place is Attn. Make of it what you will.

I think Mass Effect's hardly reference worthy ;)

I found a book in the Rome safehouse (in the bedroom) that has a picture of a guy in a red shirt playing guitar, the books title is "THE END OF MUSIC" I'm guessing someone doesn't like this guys music? could be someone from the office who insists on playing crappy acoustic tunes on all the office parties? :lol:

Theres also a big picture of this guy across the street in another building if you look out the window, I think in Rome, could also have been Moscow.

I've never found that dancer, but with subtitles enabled I often saw "The night is sooooo beautiful..." appear at the bottom of the screen. And now I know why. :lol:

Well, there is a reference to Obsidianent themselves:
In taipei safehouse, the characters below the electrical safety signs(which are also in chinese) mean Obsidian.
the signs are next to the one-way elevator.

Pretty sure it's in Moscow. I wonder what that picture is all about.

Nobody noticed the Star Wars reference? What's wrong with you? The perk for bluffing two guards is called "These Aren't the Agents You're Looking For".....in Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope, Obi-Wan Kenobi uses the force power known as Mind Trick on some Imperial Troopers to let them past the checkpoint with the droid the troopers wanted to find(R2D2) and uses the phrase "These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For". Not to mention this reference is a shout to all the Star Wars and Obsidian fans who played the epic KotOR II.
