Default Good Old Games - Might and Magic Contest

January 11th, 2010, 19:21
GoG is having a contest to see how much you know about Might & Magic 6. They took three screenshots: one, two, three. You have to tell them where these locations are in MM6. If you're right your name will go into a drawing. They will draw 9 free GoG game coupons, 3 for each image. The contest ends January 14. Here are the details of the contest:
Time to test your perceptiveness and knowledge of one of the greatest RPG series - Might and Magic.
Some time ago we've ran a similar contest concerning Gothic. You've asked for more of those challenges, so here it is. We've took three screenshots from Might and Magic 6: one, two, three. Your goal is to tell us the names of the locations we've captured. Send us your answers to users-at-gog.com until Thursday, January 14 at 11:59 EDT. If you know the answer for only one image, send it as well - we'll draw 9 free GOG game coupons, 3 for each image. So the more locations you'll guess right, the bigger chances to win a game or even 3 games! Only one entry per user is allowed.
More information.

uhhh I actually know those 3 locations. I feel smart :-)

Edit: I thought I had them…but the first one was not what I thought after looking it up. Feel less smart now :-)

I am not going to be a part of the competetion but it did peak my interest. Anyone know where that screen is from?

I've played all of them so many times, that these were easy for me. The automap is the key to figuring out the first picture because Goblins are found in a couple dungeons.

Yep, automap is the key for all 3. That helps "pull the camera back".

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.

I bought the compilation from GoG, but as tempted as I was I don't think I'll play any. As far back as my Ultima days, the screen-by-screen movement has always been too jarring an interface for me to play without getting lost when I didn't need to get lost (oh wait, I'm in the *middle* of the room now?) and even mildly nauseating.

Try activating the 'smooth' turning option, though I have to admit with modern processors, it's jerkier than it used to be. I can play it (endlessly) with no ill effects though, and I have some problems with motion sickness in games.

Knew the second and third shots instantly, but took a minute for the first. Oh the nostalgia.

Actually the key for first one is the name of the goblin

I only recognize 2 and 3, and I'm not going to bother looking up 1.

I think I recognize all three of 'em… I just can't recall the names… Ah nuts! Although I believe we're probably being tricked with the first picture. That automap is familiar, but it doesn't match with what I think it is. Has anyone already found the first one?
