They are the ones where you look at something in the game and it starts reading from it in the HUD framed with 2121. I found three: Brig cell 1, Lounge left drawer, and Lounge right drawer. Anyone know where the last two are?

No tips? One is lyrics to this song:

The other is a quote from The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.


Edit: I can't find any other references to the Genesis song in the game but The Hobbit book is apparently in the game...somewhere...anyone find it?

The things you're finding (they're all books, though they'll sometimes trigger when you're pointing at nearby things because Source) are little developer easter eggs. :)

Each one of them is a developer's choice of excerpt from something. Just a little personal touch that was snuck in. ;)

The three you mentioned are the ones I know of off the top of my head.

I vaguely remember one being in a locker or bunk, but I could be wrong.

I believe another is in an oft-overlooked part of the Med Bay.

I found The Hobbit in the Medical Bay but could not find Genesis. I searched everywhere in the barracks including vaporizing everything that I could and it hasn't shown up. The only places I haven't/can't check are Pawn 4 and Pawn 64 lockers. I'm 90% sure it isn't in Pawn 4's locker and I know of no way to get into Pawn 64's locker.

Ford, do you want a spoiler on where to find the genesis one?

Do, or do not. There is no try.
