Name That Game: 2012 Edition

Recommended Posts

I'll be surprised if number 9 is guessed without a hint.

 

I have a feeling @Hero\-of\-Time might know though...

 

6 looks like Another World.

 

Yep. Bet @Daft is kicking himself now!

 

New round.

 

1. Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon +1 Cube

Number 3 is a very old Castlevania? :s

 

Oh wait, no, is it Contra? :s And is 8. Metal Slug? :s???

I think I have the biggest incorrect:correct ratio in this thread.

 

That's not how you win though :(

 

These are pretty hard.

Naw, that would be me :heh:

 

1. Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

3. Microsoft Flight Simulator

7. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations

8. Sonic 3

 

I swear, 5 looks familiar, but I can't associate a single plausible name with it...

 

EDIT: Well, no use thinking about it now, Magnus probably took it :heh:

Magnus was right with Alien Breed. All other guesses are wrong.

 

It's hard to find the right balance of making them hard enough so they won't be instantly recognisable and not too hard that no-one can get them. I suppose you don't know until your round goes live.

 

To all the new people playing this now, feel free to make a round after this one is over :)

No, but you're very close

 

Another World...damn it, that's actually what I meant. Thought they were just different titles for different territories for the same game.

1. Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

7. Another Code R

 

8. Worms? 10 char

 

All wrong. Not sure where the Castlevania guesses are coming from for number 1. It's actually a yet to be released current gen game...

Me. Duh :blank:I kid

7. Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe

One of the finest games ever made.

 

I feel like 8. might be Point Blank or a similar lightgun game..?

Speedball is correct. The rest are wrong.

 

8 is an arcade game which also appeared on Mega Drive. It's not a lightgun game.

 

Will hand out a few clues.

 

1 shows a spider web and is a current gen, yet to be released game.

3 is not a Grunt or a Jackal. Or even a Brute.

4 is a rip-off SFII clone from the same developer as number 5. And this same developer completely ripped off number 8 with another game.

9 is an Easter egg from a recent shooter.

8 is Strider.

 

And based on the hint, 4 has to be Body Blows.

9 is Gears of War 3, and presumably 3 is either Elite or Hunter. I'm going with Elite?

Both correct.

 

Any ideas for 1? Here's a bigger image...

1. Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon

 

Correct. I'll do the scores later as I'm on my phone at the mo. Anybody fancy doing a round? Maybe one of the newer players?

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

 

I saw the eyes, thought "that's clearly Mario", but I almost put the new Sly game until I remembered Luigi's Mansion 2 existed.

Thought I'd try something a bit different. Just the one screenshot, blacked out, apart from a 30px square. Every 3 (incorrect) guesses I will increase that to a 60px square (and then 90, 120, 150 etc.) until it has been guessed.

Might be a rubbish round, but worth a try for something different.
