The giant brain in R&D

Anyone noticed it, I can’t be the only one. It’s like 50-60 feet in diameter.

Is there any lore about it ? Something a scientist says ? An echo recorder ?
Or do you guys think it’s just decor ?

I think it’s decor. Could be a reference to the brain in the lab from Lab X-16 in S.T.A.L.K.E.R., but I’m sure that’s not the only ‘giant brain floating in solution’ done in a video game either.

It wants to take over the world.


But there doesn’t seem to be any reference to it. It’s just there. Waiting.

That’s Gleemax, He’s a nice guy.

It’s the brain we need to fly the best rocket ever! Science! Woo!

I’m gonna guess it’s a Metroid Easter egg referencing Mother Brain.


It could very well be the Helios guidance system.

Its CLEARLY IT from a wrinkle in time.

It’s more likely gleemax, Seriously.

No. As someone posted in the old forums, it is RNGsus.

Well ok…


You guys just confirmed that I haven’t missed any lore, some hidden echo or whatever :blush: !


I said it aloud when my wife and I first came through this area. She agrees.

Lol she surprises me all the time with her gaming knowledge (with over 10 years together you’d think I would expect it…)

My thought as well.

My props sir.

Anyone think of it as a “The Evil Within” Easter Egg?

Why making an easteregg to a bad game, that nobody will remeber in a year or 2?
And didn’t they come out on the same day? An easteregg for a game they don’t know anything about?
