When you exit Cerulean Robotics, a group of three elderly women (known as Maud’s Muggers) named Irate Ida, Rancorous Ruth and Malefic Maud wearing pre-War spring outfits and armed with rolling pins and switchblades will attack you.
They often have a small amount of caps, showing the success of previous muggings.This is possibly a reference to a Monty Python sketch named Hell’s Grannies. Any resident of Freeside may occasionally mention them.
Joshua Graham quoting from the book of Boney M.
If you’re heading out into the wasteland this Christmas then you may want to take one of these…
Helmets and body armour finished for my pre Christmas orders, I’ve still more to do for the end of the month. It never ends but I do love making them and sending them out to my growing NCR Army around the world. Thank you all.
Your humble administrator wouldn’t say no if you fine folks wanted to acquire him some of these fine goods. ::wink::
“The phrase “Fear and Loathing in New Vegas” comes to my mind a lot. I wish they could have included a quest under that title, or at least a short-shorts/Hawaiian shirt outfit”
“For some reason, in my head I always pictured Joshua Graham, under all those bandages, as a black man.”
“I do love playing New Vegas, but it lacks the Apocalyptic vibe of Fallout 3. It feels more like you’re traveling around in a Fantasy World like Borderlands rather then an Apocalyptic Wasteland.”
I guess I could see that.
“I recently drove from Colorado to Florida, which covers a lot of terrain that totally looks like New Vegas. It was cool driving down two-lane desert roads with Radio New Vegas on the stereo, especially when I passed places like Hidden Valley or Cazadores Mexican Restaurant.”
Fallout New Vegas cultural reference: Skeleton with fedora in refrigerator and Indiana Jones in the refrigerator that withstood an atomic bomb
The Wild Wasteland trait adds an encounter with a refrigerator containing a fedora and skeleton. This is a reference to the scene in “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” where Indiana Jones saves himself from an atomic bomb explosion by taking cover in a lead-lined fridge (this scene was infamous for its absurdity).
