Aww, I felt so clever with the Cyberpunk 2077 link. And Miasmata! So obvious! O_o

My god, I can't believe I got the Natural Selection 2 picture. That was a... stretch, to say the least.

Okay so let's take a look at the new batch:

1)?

2)I haven't played it, but I'm going to say The Walking Dead just because the gun looks quite sketchy. At first I thought it was the Heavy Rain 'audition' teaser.

3)Anno 2070

4)Dungeon Defenders

5)To The Moon

6)Dog Bites Face?

7)Dead Space

8)No idea.

1. ?

2. The Walking Dead (I believe Episode 1?)

3. ?

4. Ehhhhh...new Sim City?

5. This one is very obvious and I know it...but I can't name it

6. Kind of looks like a screen shot from Fly me to the Moon

7. Something awful with a dog..fuck dogs (Dark Souls made me hate dogs)

8. Dead Space? Something looks off though.. 

9. A Christine Love game?

 

And now to look at Gregg's no doubt 100% correct list..

1. Netflix's House of Cards

2. Walking Dead

8. Either Transformers: War for Cybertron or Transformers: Fall of Cybertron (Google image searched and found the screenshot it's from)

9. The Killing Joke  (The Joker keeps making appearances in these things.  But not his game incarnations, ironically...)

You guys nailed the last one. I think this one's pretty easy too. Last month:

TapHeader_014.jpgImage Enlarger

  • Netflix's House of Cards
  • The Walking Dead
  • Crackdown
  • Anno 2770
  • Dungeon Defenders
  • To the Moon
  • Far Cry 3
  • Transformers: Fall of Cybertron
  • Alan Moore and Brian Bolland's The Killing Joke

#4 - Whatever it's called..I remember watching it.

#4 is Disney's Tailspin, #7 looks like Okami to me...no real clue otherwise.

1) Darkwood

2) I want to say Prometheus or some Aliens film, perhaps even AvP in the pyramid or something. It looks like a mural.

3) Auditorium

4) Something I watched as a kid that I can't possibly remember the name of. Oh! TailSpin.

5) ?

6) ?

7) Definitely Okami. Maybe.

8) Tides of Numenerenenernenerreneneraenera.

9) Zaxxon? You've used that twice already you know. I've got a feeling it is literally a motherboard, and we've got to guess what type.

*cackle*

It's not a motherboard, so no need to determine which type. That would've been cold, even for me. It does look a little like Zaxxon, though, which it also is not.

Gregg, you might have an excuse for not getting #2 because I'm not sure of schedules over there. #5 is one I think I've used before, but the colors in that shot there are so muted it's hard to even make out what it is. "Brown: you've seen the color, now play the game."

I'm excited about Darkwood, the preview was super-creepy and I love the scavenging element. May it be awesome!

Oh, you're right!  That is Auditorium.  I should've recognized that.

Upon second look, I can tell #2 is from the intro to Game of Thrones, and I don't even watch that show!

How is #9 not part of a motherboard? Okay: graphics card? Network card? Sound card? Some kind of PCI, AGP, PCI-E or other type of card that goes into computers anywhere in between the years 1970 and 2013?

#3 looks like a mobile music game that I've played, though I can't come up with the name.

I think I thwarted you guys on #5 and #6 with this one.

TapHeader_015.jpgImage Enlarger

  1. Darkwood
  2. HBO's Game of Thrones
  3. Auditorium
  4. Disney's TaleSpin
  5. Lost Eden (old P&C adventure from Cryo. First CD-ROM a young Steerpike ever bought!)
  6. Miner 2049er (one of the many versions, an odd classic from the days of yore)
  7. Okami
  8. Torment: Tides of Numenara
  9. the Raspberry curse you burnell  Pi.

This time I've given you some obvious ones and some not so obvious ones. Some are devilish! Devious! I dare you to run my Gauntlet!

 

Ooo, Gauntlet. That's a good idea.

Ah Auditorium was #3 on the last one, I knew it was something I'd played. Drat.

#5 looks like Metro (either one)

#6 is obviously Papo & Yo!

#8 looks like the sterility of Mirror's Edge and Portal ... but I don't think it's either of those.

#s 2 and 9 look like some obscure games from 1926 and I'm sure Gregg was playing them just the other day and knows exactly what they are.

Last "month's" banner was on too long, apologies, I haven't had a chance to make a new one. Until today!

TapHeader_016.jpgImage Enlarger

  1. Thirty Flights of Loving
  2. Organ Trail
  3. Dual-core Pentium
  4. Deadly Premonition ("So says Mr. Stewart!")
  5. Metro: Last Light
  6. Papo and Yo
  7. Terrence Malick's Badlands (inspiration for Natural Born Killers, don'tcha know - a far better movie, too)
  8. Drunken Robot Pornography
  9. Missile Command

This new one should be relatively guessable, except for a few puzzlers. And no google image searches! I'll know! I will sense it.
