    I read somewhere that you could get Dog/God talk about Lou.
    I think i hexausted all their dialogs but i couldn't get him to talk about this old character.
    Is it true ? How can it be done ?

    I know isn't gamebreaking, but considering it is the first mention of this character since he died, i am curious about it.

    I can confirm this, I got Dog to speak about "Lou" for the first time during my last play-through. Unfortunately I forget exactly how this occurs, maybe during the walk to the switches before the Gala Event? I'm also not sure if you have to pass a Speech or Perception check. I definitely missed it my first few times playing Dead Money; my first Courier preferred the company of God to Dog and the others didn't care enough to speak to him.

    The dialogue is definitely in the game files, under NVDLC01DogDialogueNVDLC01DogTopic077 in File Name NVDLC01Dog_NVDLC01DogDialo_00013B18_1 (reference):

    Courier: When we were sneaking, you mentioned Lou... who's Lou?

    Dog: Lou... ten... ant? Long ago. Smart....Gave us all things to do. Like watch. And kill....Gone now.

    <Dialogue Note: Confused, then sad. He's referring to "Lou" an old Lieutenant from a previous game, it's a nod to history>
