'Portal' Reference in 'Dead Space Ignition'

#1 Edited by TrashMustache (452 posts) -

Anybody else noticed? It Occurs when playing any of the hack mini games but It's randomized. The Woman says "If You Continue, I Won't Let You Have Your Cake".   
 
This made me smile.

Oh maybe instead of Portal, it was a Super Mario Brothers reference. And when she said "cake", she really meant sex.

Yea its probably a Portal ref. You seem to find a lot of those in games you wouldn't expect to. The one in Castlevania was a bit of a stretch, though.

I over heard a long time ago, from someone whom I meet at a party who said he once met a guy in a bathroom in Taiwan who said he knew a guy who sat next to the girlfriend of the guy who cleans the pool of the neighbor of one of the developers at Valve that worked on Half Life 2 who knows a guy who knew one of the developers of Portal when they were in kindergarten who told him that the cake is in fact...

Guh. Sounds forced. I'll reserve judgment for if/when I play it myself. But... guh. It sounds forced.

You know, I liked Portal but I'm getting pretty sick of it now. Its was a fun little game but the way everyone keeps going on about it is uncalled for. It wasn't that good.

There's a BioShock reference in Mafia 2. Devs are sneaky motherfuckers.

I don't know about the Portal reference but i did get a kick out of hearing the computer lady say "I'm sorry, but i'm afraid i can't allow you to do that...."(Hal from "2001").
