Okay, here are the rules:

1. I'll post a partial screenshot from a game, movie, etc. You can also do a portion of text from a book if you wish, just try to not use totally obscure books or movies or games.

2. People guess what it's from. If it's from a series, you must specify which one of the series it is.

3. Person who gets it right gets 2 or 3 mod points and gets to go next.

4. Once your game has been guessed, remove the in-thread images to take pity on those with low bandwith. You can keep the attachments though.

It's from World of Warcraft, isn't it? Everything is these days...

Uru, just because it *has* to be something Mysty, and most other Mysts have already been suggested. Even all my training in adventuring lore doesn't allow me to distinguish between two Mysts, though.

I guess we have a winner.

At least my guess of "Rogue" was a game from the same company - namely Epyx... :)

np: Schneider TM - Klexx (Skoda Mluvit)

Yup, Cedhric got it. It's from the C64 version of Sword of Fargoal, a game so accessible that even my mum used to play it lots, but so hard that I still haven't beaten it properly.

Yep, Thief 1, right at the entrance of the third mission, with an annoyed chap in the way.

Do we have to say the number of the game when dealing with a series?

either way, you deserve this round more than I since you could remember with more specificity. those are some of the few games I played repeatedly, but not often enough and long ago enough to not remember which is which.

Yep, it's from Thief 1, and I'm really impressed you could identify the mission as well.

I'm assuming we have to specifically say the game number based on the first entry having to be identified as Myst III.

I have played the early missions of both Thief 1 and 2 more than a few times each. I have fairly mixed feelings towards the game, finding them *very* interesting but somehow lacking after a few missions. I was just lucky you picked a mission in the first half of the game.

Okay, another screenshot up for grabs.

Oh... what a great thread :)

That's definitely Albion. Not played it too much, but looks like one of the store rooms on the actual ship itself... accessible early on?

Perfidious Albion it is indeed.

The screenshot is taken from the ship you start in, in the upper half of the launch bay, if memory serves.

Ok, well here's a rather easy one... but one I'm currently playing quite a bit.

Would help if I blanked the name in-game lol
