So, HTC Sense 3.0 has some, uh, unexpected "features".

Okay, so I just updated my Desire S to Sense 3.0 earlier today. I was happily looking through the new features, screwing around with the new lock-screen and generally lamenting the fact that it still doesn't have even half the options of LauncherPro, when I decided to look through the various lock-screen presets. That's when I saw THIS:

That's right kids, a timely, culturally relevent and not-at-all random Resident Evil 3 reference!

Naturally, I am now bursting with odd, pointless questions. Firstly: "what the fuck?", secondly: "seriously, WHAT, THE, FUCK?!", and so on.

In all seriousness, did anyone else notice this? I know this is an unfathomably dumb thing to be thinking about in any detail, but I was pretty weirded out when I first saw it. Is it just a recent development, something to do with halloween or the 15th anniversary of the RE franchise, or is it just a piece of sub-Family Guy, referential "humor"? If someone with a Sensation, Evo 4G or any other HTC device that came with Sense 3.0 could tell me one way or the other, I'd be very greatful.

That fight is kind of silly though, you can't look at your health the entire time.

That is amazingly random in a way I can get behind.

Wait wait wait.... I totally forgot that Jill was infected in RE3. It pissed me off to no end in 5 (3 year old Spoilers i guess?) how Jill was infected by the only virus that was not only curable but stupidly easy to cure. But they totally set a precedent for this in 3!

To quote High Fidelity: I'm fine now!

It seems like it's probably an in-joke they were using as placeholder text, but forgot to take it out before they went live.

Yeah, that's a good point. I would've expected them to change it by now though, as Sense 3.0 has been out for like five months on some HTC phones.
