Easter eggs / pop culture references

Post by Baardhaas » Fri Jul 22, 2016 9:25 pm

Some of us love them and some of us hate them but pop culture references are one of the hallmarks of Fallout, especially Fallout 2 had (too) many of them. So lets list the ones in Fallout 1.5

Off the top of my head I remember the following:

In the Falcon Flight in Sedit the barkeep's name is Rene and the two female ghouls are Ivet and Mimi. A reference to the 80's series 'Allo 'Allo.

In a random encounter I've met MacGyver of the 80's television show with the same name.

Edit: Edith wasn't in the game, it was Ivette. Smart move, he ran off with his two hot waitresses.

I wonder if MacGyver can provide some services, you can ask him to rummage your bag and his location is saved on the map. Maybe he needs that pocket knife.

The holodisk you get detailing expedition of imperial soldiers to lower level of the Vault 16 is a clear reference to Aliens. Fallen soldiers even share names (Hicks, Vasquez, Hudson)

He can make several items if you bring him the right things. Liberus already gave the ingredients for the doctor's bag in another thread. I'll list what I've found so far:

1. mentats + iguana on a stick (the one with the iguana on it, not the shishkebab) = doctor's bag
2. psycho + meat jerky = first aid kit
3. rubber doll + rubber boots + dynamite = combat armor

It seems he can make each item only once.

Easter egg characters

Post by GarettZriwin » Wed Aug 03, 2016 12:04 pm

Are there any hidden quests in game or these characters have just names for people to see what devs did there? :P

There is a quest (or several quests actually) involving them, but as far as I know those are not related to the easter egg. Their names are just a small nod to an '80's television show.

BTW, there is already a thread about easter eggs: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=785

Actually, I suspect it's only the copies that carry 15 rocks. The originals seem to carry 30.

Otherwise I'm really lousy at spotting pop-references, however, it occurred to me that Clark and Loiz of the Crater in Sedit could be a superman reference (ouch...).

And it seems to me that Marylin at Wanda's brothel could be Marylin Monroe. Not sure about the others though (Suzan, Trixie and Abby?)

Then there is the Thunderdome reference, as mentioned here:

And Pulp Fiction: Zed and the basement with the Baseball Bat and Samurai Sword, only missing the chainsaw.
