  4. Whose idea was it to let the player have Yes Man punch Oliver off of Hoover Dam? I must say, that is supremely satisfying.
    Joshua Sawyer: I'm not sure. It was probably Charlie Staples, Akil Hooper, or Jesse Farrell. They all worked on Hoover Dam.

  5. Who in particular comes up with the indivual stories for each vault? Chris Avellone? The whole team? Obviously some have movie inspirations. But others seem just.. Fucked up and bizarre :/
    Joshua Sawyer: I wrote the basic concepts for F:NV's vaults but individual designers fully fleshed the concepts out and implemented them. Vault 3: Akil Hooper, Vault 11: Eric Fenstermaker, Vault 19: Sydney Wolfram. Vault 21: Jorge Salgado. Vault 22: Jesse Farrell, Vault 34: Sydney Wolfram.

  6. Who thought up the Boomers, Nellis and the "Volare!" mission? They're by far my favorite faction and missions of the games. Great job guys.
    Joshua Sawyer: John Gonzalez came up with the Boomers. I came up with the basics of Volare! and Akil Hooper did the actual development of the quest.

  7. Who came up with the idea for ED-E? i love that little dude.
    Joshua Sawyer: Thanks. I generated the concepts and character arcs for all of the companions, but different designers wrote the actual dialogue and implemented the quests. In the case of ED-E, Akil Hooper generated the quests/content.

  8. Q: "Is the Q-35 Matter Modulator from F:NV named after the Illudium Q-36 Space Modulator?"
    Josh Sawyer: "I believe so. That item was named by Akil Hooper, who designed REPCONN HQ."
