    A slight Mad Max refrence would be par for the course in FO1 though, especily a slight enough one to be hard to notice.

    When you eat one of those military holodisks, you get a temporary +1 ST, +2 EN, +1 PE.

    When you give all of them to Miss Kitty in New Reno, she will give you a Wasteland Ghettoblaster with which you can... rock on.

    Define 'Easter Egg'... are we talking random quotes that have been taken from something, or specifically items that have been added for no reason other than someone's amusement?

    More of the latter than the former, but it all depends on the case.

    There is literally a colorful little egg your can get in New Reno that really doesn’t do anything.

    being an Israeli, I can clear it up :) :

    Sheol = Abyss.
    Gehenom= hell.

    well, it's not the same actually... do the following searches in google:

    define:abyss
    define:hell

    and you'll find many differences :)

    ahem...sadly enough im from the flyspeck town known as camarillo, ca. and the younger crowd (younger crowds range between the ages of 13-25) commonly call it hell because there is NOTHING to do in this town. its basically an old person town, where people go to retire, since Camarillo won the 'best climate in america' two years straight for some dumbass reason.

    i doubt the developers of fallout knew ANY of this, though, so id suggest researching more terms associating the word Camarillo with hell, or something.

    ...yeah.

    Please don't disable BBCoding in a post when you use BBCoding next time, it looks really silly.

    I don't believe I ran across these two explanations before.

    Also - this was the spot to post it in, Mike.... ;)

    Is that random encounter map a reference to that settlement from Mad Max 2 with a schoolbus-gate?
    (I only did a night-time screenshot, sorry)

    Hmm, could be... does look like it...

    Oh, and maybe a noobish question, and tech related... but how the hell do I make a screenie? Caus I just hit my PrtScrn button, then copy-paste in Paint... but then the colors are all FUBAR...

    Press F12 for Master's sake. A small text in the message box "Screenshot saved." will appear, and you'll find the .BMP in your Fallout folder.

    PrintScrn works too, but this is simpler.
