Hey Beekeepers!

Check out the first line of the first page after the ToC in your ODST manual!

Think that's a little shou7 ou7?

I don't have ODST yet, but if it has to do with 7's, that's purely a Bungie thing.

I'll just have to wait and see what it says. :)

No, no, it says:

"Make it quick, Captain. You're not the only bee buzzing in my hive today."

I'd say 80% chance of it being a shout-out/reference, then. :)

Haha, yeah, I noticed that too!

Man, I must've really been coffee-deprived to have missed that this morning.

-- Steve thinks it's totally a shout-out... especially with the payphone gimmick in-game.

as Tycho says on the penny arcade blog,

"Bungie has clearly tired of hearing people say that ilovebees - which is, at root, an advertisement - had more narrative power than their actual games."

Damn straight.

Now I need to go and actually buy ODST dammit...

I get this with a lot of ARG/CF stuff, but ILB really does not seem like something you could call an advertisement. I don;t remember the words "Halo 2" ever appearing in game material. Have I forgotten? I'm sure the accountants expensed it under promotional, but to me it seems roughly as mush of an ad for H2 as Halo 1, or the novels, except it was free.
