So it appears VitaCorp have entered the antidepressant business...

The Vorticons have been doing antifungals for a while though...

I doubt it somehow. Keen isn't an uncommon word. Also is that Alien Isolation?

It's a common word, but not a common name.

That reminds me, wasn't TMST a fairly well known member of Albino Black Sheep? Or am I thinking of someone else? Might be some references in their work too.

So, you all might know about Minecraft having SGA, but what if I told you it might have another Keen reference?

Older versions of Minecraft have numeric IDs for objects. And the golden helmet has an ID number of 314. (This was added way back in Alpha.) Maybe this was not intentional, but either way this is pretty funny.
