    Dallas also was an Origin employee IIRC (Marketing or PR me thinks)

    This was circa 1991... so, like, 256 color graphics and polygons and speech and stuff.

    Advanced mind-control. People are still taking about a 1991 game, aren't they?

    Figured this was a perfect thread to ressurect. I was searching for Dallas' real name since I didn't find any mention of it on the CIC front page doing a news search. I also came up blank searching WCPedia.

    Anyway, another fun tidbit here: The last line on the plaque is Rich "T Dog" Strobers, which is clearly a lazy anagram of Chris Roberts. Rich is Chris minus the S and Strobers has the extra S from Chris, and moves it's T forward. I'm not sure I get the T Dog reference, but I'm sure there's a story behind it.

    Bing Gordon was an EA exec. Here's a recent article about him. I guess it's telling that the Prophecy team killed him off too.

    "T Dog" - if I were to guess, is probably just not as obvious as "Top Dog". Just a supposition, but it makes sense.
