25 Responses to Edge pixel poster crowd-solving results

  1. […] in the epic Edge Pixel Poster.  Well the results are in from around the Internet and Gabe has posted a follow-up with the results.  Be sure to check it out and see if you can’t contribute to the challenge […]

  2. Andrew says:

    Master Chief – [17
    Warcraft Ogre? – V03
    Moogle? – I07 on castle flagpole

    Just after a quick glance-through.

    • justonemoregame says:

      Thanks Andrew,
      Master Chief was on the list (I’ve forgotten to put him under “Halo”), but I’ve added the other 2.

  3. Armyoftrolls says:

    Lol good work guys you got most of em, a few were missing tho…

    Vagrant Story is up by the church with the zombies.

    A cat from Monster Hunter is outside the park next to some guys from Dug Dug.

    Near the massive damage sign is the robot from Bangai-O.

    3 of my fave games and you missed em 😛

    • justonemoregame says:

      Gary, thanks for dropping by!
      I’d say we did pretty well (spotting 71 out of 77?) 🙂

      PS: Oh no, I missed Dig Dug! (#retrogaming #fail)
      Mind you – they’re really tiny on my version.

  4. Armyoftrolls says:

    also missed, Mr Driller on one of the post around the park and ginjiro ibushi from Guardian heroes is on the screen near the space invaders cab.

  5. Vysion says:

    Possibilities (but I’d love to have a high res version to work from…)
    E29 Ecco the Dolphin
    #20 Sony PlayStation controller buttons [square, triangle, circle, X]
    #21-$21 Tony Hawk Pro Skater or º720

    Who is the character in these cells?
    on wall @21, @22 and in person at @25, #25
    on graffiti wall of stairs at $22
    on side of building at )23 my guess is Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney
    on grass standing across K24, K25, L24, L25, M24, and M25 my guess is one of the Colossi from Shadow of the Colossus
    on the road ]10 my guess is Carmaggedon from the run over pedestrian and bloody tires
    on the sidewalk +07 my guess is Nico from Grand Theft Auto 4
    on sidewalk F06, F07 and next to that at G06, G07 my guess are a couple of fighting game damsels (Soul Calibur or Street Fighter?)

    While it’s been mentioned, I wanted to clarify the coolness of:
    &26 Balloon present from Animal Crossing and its twin at the upper left corner of -27
    #28 Cioking enemy of the Patapon
    +05, +06, [05, [06 The hero of the Ghosts and Goblins series in his unarmored form
    R02 one of the LocoRoco enemy critters far from the others

    I can’t tell if any of the crates at the docks have little Solid Snake feet underneath (again how does one get the high-res version; is it for sale?).

    I actually did see Dig Dug, but that’s been mentioned in the comments (same with the Felyne chef from the Monster Hunter series next to them) so no prize for me.

    I’ve got to stop before going cross-eyed looking at 400% magnification.

  6. […] poster that the magazine company is giving away to all of it’s most recent subscribers? Well, Just One More Game has put up a guide to deciphering the poster, and they made the poster into a grid, and posted each […]

  7. Griff says:

    The weapons from Gunstar Heroes are sitting in a row starting at B9.

  8. Griff says:

    Also found Mega Man straddling E8/E9/F8/F9.

  9. […] Have you been wondering just what goodies are hidden in the EDGE game poster? Well, at the link below, you can see a collection of games/characters that are hidden in the image above. Just use the grid to see where your favorite games are located! Guide here […]

  10. Draugo says:

    How about the Massive Damage sign in itself. Might be a reference to the Genji 2 E3 promotion thing. You know the one with the giant crab enemy.

  11. starlac says:

    As a Edge sub, I can tell you that the game character in the window Q10 is Sam Fisher, not an enemy from Galaga.

  12. starlac says:

    $26/27 – the grid line between these two squares goes straight through Flicky from the sega game of the same name and nearby there are some chicks.

  13. Ali Alsawaf says:

    I recently subscribed to Edge just to get this 😦

    They offer it with new subs currently. As much as I hate Edge.

  14. Ali Alsawaf says:

    And here it is, framed up in all it’s glory in the games room

    it really is a brilliant piece of art!

  15. justonemoregame says:

    *Fantastic* Ali. Nice work. 🙂

  16. dragonfeather says:

    F10 -> FF12 Balthier

  17. dragonfeather says:

    B28 -> Wave race
