I’ve seen this cover so much, but i never would have been able to guess it , as i am still unable to process what it represents or even evokes.
Yeah, for sure. I remembered it instantly from recently flipping through old gaming mags.
Here’s another one.
Half Life: Opposing Forces
My eyes! The goggles do nothing!
I miss Adrenaline Vault and haven’t thought about the site in many, many years. Now I feel old, disconnected, and sad. Wasn’t their demise caused by hackers deleting all their site data out from under them?
Anyway, my guess is:
I feel like with quotes from Avault and Thresh, it’s gotta be a PC game. Probably a shooter…
But right now all I can think of is that the original Hitman had a mostly white cover, I think… so I’ll guess that.
If you want a trip down memory lane, their stuff is archived here:
(Well, I guess it’s just an assortment of Wayback Machine links, but it’s kinda convenient.)
It’s very convenient because they link to backups with all the pages of a given review properly dumped (bunch of retrieves were partial when something went wrong with the server ironically, I gather).
Some dreadful JS leftovers though XD
Silent Hill is a good, but wrong, guess.
Yes to PC game. Not part of the Hitman series.
Close enough, I’ll give it to you.
Sorry for the delays. I meant to put some people and the fangs in next.
I really wanted to love Nocturne when it came out. It had really (for the time) impressive visuals, and a badass story. It was also interesting that you could play the episodes in any order. I assume this was kind of a holdover from TR’s shareware days. The clunky controls kind of did it in for me, though, and I think I only finished two of the four episodes.
I believe they kind of connected it to their Blair Witch games (bizarre use of that license, though not unwelcome), and I also think that BloodRayne kind of fell out of these titles, too.
Anyhow, here’s a cover -
Gabriel Knight 3?
I had the same experience with Nocturne.
Didn’t know it was connected to Blair Witch though
