missing all the music themed quests and such lots of great rock and pop referanced and none shown hereBecause as it says, this is part one.
Weren't bent spoons an iconic reference to psychic/magic/unearthly power before the Maytrix though?
Excellent work perculia. 10/10 would read again.
Power Converter is another Star Wars reference.
Power Converter is another Star Wars reference.as is Toshley's Station itself, though as you say you focused on items for this article.But as for glaring omissions, surely you can't have missed that the ultrasonic screwdriver is a Doctor Who reference?
Don't forget The Elder Scrolls for video games! many references to that. And Star Trek! So many references to the TV show! Can't believe you left it out! O.o
Ethereal Transporter Control Panel and Puzzle Box of Yogg-Saron are both reference to Hellraiser cube (aka Lemarchand's box).
Lost as TV series. In Sholazar Basin, northern side of the lake you can find a Hatch in a small island with numbers on it, just as in the Lost TV seris
Just a reminder, this post covers items only. Music-themed quests, NPCs in various zones, scenery reminiscent of a show...these aren't meant to be included in this post, or the follow-up post. We may do other posts in the future covering quests, achievements, NPCs, as the blog says :)
You forgot Tenacious Defender.
What about this item from Doctor Who?The Ultrasonic Screwdriver
You've missed the hanzo sword which is a reference to Kill Bill.
Bookmarked. Awesome list/guide again.
This is AWESOME! One of your best lists so far! I've always wondered how many things that Blizzard has referenced and it's great to see them all in one place.
Totally missed the Hanzo sword. And the The Ultrasonic Screwdriver.Though the fact that there's only one Doctor Who reference in the whole game is an atrocity in itself.
Frenzyheart Brew as a reference to the Frosted Flakes (Brings out the Tiger in you!)
The Ultrasonic Screwdriver=Doctor Who
OMG what an AMAZING idea! I'm in a bit of a hurry, not reading it fully for now. Have to take my time with this :) But I decided to post because you asked if you should do more. YES YES YES PLEASE! On a side note that picture with the trolls on the mounts looks so cool! I never liked theses mounts much, but now I have to get them :D Thx!
We've got another post coming which covers references in books, as stated at the top :)lord of the rings isnt a book only...most know it as a movie because no one likes readying a total of 1000 pages or more to get a story....
Armageddon is also a reference to the hatch in LOST for Rascal-Bot.
