Title says it all im looking for any hidden references and areas in the game
Well what immediately comes to mind is the "critter wars" area in the hills of northern Mulgore.
I'm partial to Area 52.
The X2 Nether Rocket has many goblins working on it, most of whom are clad in Star Trek-inspired uniforms.
Two of the goblins working on the X2 Nether Rocket have a dialogue running along the lines of Elton John's "Rocket Man".
The X2 name is a reference to the X-plane, the experimental U.S. airplane/rocket program.
The town's name is a reference to Area 51, a US military base which has strong pop culture ties to extraterrestrials and their space-faring technology.
When going through the doors, players receive a short "debuff" (with no apparent effects) from the A-52 Neuralyzer, which says "The flash of light you did not see did not erase your memories." In the film Men in Black, agents were issued a device, also called a Neuralyzer, that wiped people's memories with a flash of light whenever they had any contact with aliens.
Innkeeper Remi Dodoso's name in Area 52 spells out the notes 'Re' 'Mi' 'Do' 'Do' 'So' in the solfege scale. This is a reference to the musical theme used in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind to communicate with the aliens which have landed on Earth.
Area 52 and the X2 rocket also periodically get attacked by Negatron, a reference to Megatron from the Transformers series.
