So I've noticed quite few references to other games out there. One was at the end, which was clearly a "tribute" to MW2. Another one was a hint to Gears of War with "You gotta be kidding me".

The best, however was the HUGE one to bioshock: "a bunch of socialists deciding they don't get enough and start to destroy the place".

For those with good ears: a lot of the guns have similar sounds to those of other epic games, like Gears of War and Unreal Tournament.


Anyone else found any?

...... take a good look at hunt.. then think about those games again... no really.. take a real good look at the menu, notice the face, body, and parts of the armor..

Epic tends to keep UT3/GoW in all of their games.
Marcis Fenix can be seen in other named characters as if he has body doubles all over.


reminds me of how most Lucas Arts games back in the 90's had a referance or two back to Sam'n'Max by having Max show up in each title somewhere in some form or another.

No, no, no, I'm talking about subtle references that require the player to pay attention.

The starting multiplayer skin looks like it was ripped straight from Gears of War 2 (Carmine skin)

There's even a Burnout Paradise reference in it (it's one of the chapter's names). No idea why..

Because it's a chapter full of burnouts. You'll see when you get there ;)

yeah, but the whole game sticks out like a sore thumb as references to other games.
even the marketing used references to other titles :p

good eye or not, anyones going to see a few good jokes in there, but the keen will see more.
