    Sierra Army Depot does really exist, and look alot different from the one portrayed in Fallout.

    Basic info on the base -
    http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/facility/sierra.htm

    The Bases own website -
    http://www.sierra.army.mil/SIAD.html

    As it is a crime now to take pictures of National landmarks or military or government facilities their pictures of their base are limited... but trust me its alot bigger than a hole in a mountain :D

    As for its location it near Navada, I think there is a map on its main website showing its excact location. Most the location in Fallout I have found are tracable to real locations, or relate to RL locations.

    Don't Know if anyone spotted this one, but blantant refrence to Mad Max 2 in fallout tactics in the Junction City mission briefing:

    "Cooter, died recently when he triggered an explosive booby trap on a retrieved Interceptor vehicle. "

    Someone posted this idea on the House of Lords boards, about putting a guy in front of Madam Lil's shouting stuff like 'We've got halfling pussy, we've got ogre pussy, we've got... and so on' and said it was something that he had seen in "From Dusk Till Dawn" where Cheech Marin is in front of the bar advertising all the different types of pussy you can get at the Titty Twister.

    Now, I'm either hallucinating or whatever, but isn't there some guy standing in front of the Cat's Paw in New Reno doing that exact same thing? Advertising all the different types of pussy you can get there? I could've sworn I read something like that in Fallout 2.
    Can anyone confirm this?

    This is from Fallout2:
    i played this over a year from now but...
    ...after exterminating raiders that were attacking Vault City i checked their dogtags in their containers and one of then was Angel Eyes,i think the second one was Blondie and the third one had a rather long Spanish/Mexican-like name(XX+Rodriguez+XX)...

    then i saw this movie errr....a review of a movie that contained the same three chars (same name) and in movie they were also bandits...

    so there u go...another fine egg :D

    Actually, if I remember correctly, one of the dialogs with her, the chosen one actually calls her Syphyllis.

    The movie is Il Buono, il brutto, il cattivo, aka The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. This reference was recognized long ago.

    And Phyllis is an actual name and not a reference to syphyllis.

    Actually, he wasn't a designer for Fallout, only for Fallout 2 and Van Buren. He also appears in Fallout Tactics and (sort of) in Fallout 2.

    Wasn't there dialogue for this in Fallout 2 when you spoke to her in the medical bay?

    Methinks so.

    Yes. Phyllis is a real name, the CO calling her "sy-phyllis" is a joke.

    Do you remember Algernon from the basement of New Reno Arms? Are there any relations to that Exosquad (1993-1995) animated series? There was Professor Algernon.
