Name That Game #9 [Update]

???

TimI know it’s been a looooong time since we’ve done one of these and I’ve been promising it for quite awhile as well, but I’ve been pretty busy. Anyway, I’ll try to get them up a bit more regularly, but this time no promises. I don’t want to be a liar! If you’re new to this little game, rules are posted after the break. Good luck!
[Update]: We have a winner! [spoiler]Wes is correct as he guessed the upcoming Diablo III, nice! I was getting ready to expand the picture as the guesses were all over the place, but he nailed it. Look for another Name That Game next week![/spoiler]

Name That Game #8 [Update]

???

TimIt’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these, but see if you can guess what game this image is from! Also, Ray is back in town and is starting work on tomorrow’s comic, let him know how much you missed him! If you’re new to this little game, rules are posted after the break. Good luck!

[Update]: We have a winner! [spoiler] Rokai is correct as he guessed Sega Superstar Tennis, way to go! Lots of good guesses on this one as it really could have been a lot of different games.[/spoiler]

Name That Game #6 [Update]

???

TimI thought I’d sandwich in a Name That Game between yesterday’s podcast and tomorrow’s comic. If you’re new to this little game, rules are posted after the break. Good luck!

[Update]: Rachel is indeed correct, the image you see is from the classic game: [spoiler]Q*bert! That poster was always funny to me because they gave Q*bert arms for once just so he could carry a giant quarter (or is Q*bert really that small???). Great jeorb Rachel![/spoiler]

Name That Game #5 [Update]

TimThe comic is coming, but until then, you can guess where this image comes from! If you’re new to this little game, rules are posted after the break. Good luck!

[Update]: CouchPotato99 is certainly correct. The game is the ever-popular… [spoiler]Halo 3! I used Halo 3 because of the response to our last comic. I figured since everyone here hates Master Chief, it might be fitting to squeeze him in once more ;)[/spoiler]

Name That Game #4 [Update]

???

TimAlright, this one is a bit more obscure and I’d be REALLY impressed if anyone got this. I’ll start dropping hints and expand the picture a bit if it proves too difficult. If you’re new to this little game, rules are posted after the break. Good luck!

[Hint 1]: I knew this would be tougher! First of all, it’s not a Mario game, so forget about the Chain Chomps! Also, I’ll clue you in that the title of this game doesn’t exactly ‘roll’ off the tongue…

[Hint 2]: Ok, I’ve expanded the field of vision a bit on the image, it may help a little, but it’ll still be tough. My hint this time would be that the game is a current generation console title. That’s all you get for the next 24 hours, so start guessing!

[Update]: Nice work Rokai (and Andrew)! It is the U.S. box art for Kororinpa: Marble Mania. I told you it’d be a bit more obscure!

TimWhile you wait for the comic, try a new installment of Name That Game. If you’re new to this little game, rules are posted after the break. Good luck!

[Update]: Narnian and everyone else in the world is right, it is Phantom Hourglass. I’m going to have to go a little more obscure next time because you’re guessing these way too fast!

[Update]: The game is indeed Mega Man Powered Up! Nushio had it from the start. I’ll have to start making these a bit tougher…

Name That Game #1 [Update]

???

TimWelcome to 2P START’s, ‘Name That Game’. This is something I thought up recently and I hope you enjoy it. If you all like it well enough, I may make it a regular occurring blog post here. So here’s how it works: Above, you’ll see a small portion of a much larger picture. This picture is some sort of official artwork for a videogame. It could be a screenshot, or box art, or a flyer, or anything the publisher put out related to the game. Your challenge is to figure out which game it’s from. If no one guesses correctly in a reasonable amount of time, I’ll expand the window a bit and let you see a little more. This is a ‘just for fun’ contest, but I may include winner’s names and past contests in our Contest section alongside the Trivia for You winners from the podcast. So without further ado, can you Name That Game?

[Update]: It is indeed Pac-Man! The artwork is from the side of the cabinet from the original arcade version of the game. Great job Jared (and the others who guessed right)! I’ll have another up in a day or so, so check back soon!
