Excellent find!

I can't help but wonder what tipped you off? I would not have made the connections.

He's obviously a raving mad supergenius with the information processing skills of an entire intelligence agency packed into his everyday thought.

Oh my god! I used to love that film, and I never noticed! Good find!
And the John Jacob Aster school, no doubt named from the man who died on Titanic.
Really cool find!

So the creators of the game were like... "We'll pay homages to several classic masterpieces like The Shining, Carrie, The Silence of the Lambs, The Mist and Kindergarten Cop??

KageReneko, I doubt it was as much of an homage as it was just someone on staff had either seen it recently, or the remembered it when it came time for gathering source material to design the game.

Fan mind screw? After all, Kindergarten Cop would be the last thing fans would expect to find referenced in such a game, especially given everything else they've used as inspiration.

This thread just got Kotaku'd.
Though this has been known for like half a year now... it's not really that new.

It's sorta funny to see how even if the news in question is 6 months old, once one site puts it out there, several others will follow. Well, in this case, it's pretty cool to see this forum linked to on Destructoid and Kotaku, so I'm not complaining.
