Crazyguy1990 is also Smartguy1990 because he was the first to correctly guess that yesterday's ScribbleTaku was Jetpac. I loved that game so much.

Been a while since I've flexed the ol' ScribbleTaku muscles.

Let's see who can get this one!

I was only partially raised by my parents. They taught me some things: tying shoelaces, manners, the gentlemen's sport of cricket. But growing up alongside Sierra adventure games, they taught me pretty much everything else, from asinine grammar to correct police procedure to the very alarming fact that almost everything in the world can kill you at any moment.

Computer opponents "cheating" in games is nothing new. Though the bonuses an AI player gets are more to address the fact it can't think outside the box like a human can, rather than an attempt to smash you senseless every time. The bits and bytes of Street Fighter 2's brains were no different, relying one a single-frame advantage to get ahead of competent, flesh-and-blood combatants.

Surprise! Turns out people remember Tenchu just as fondly as all of scree's other contributions over the last week. Good job sennohki and cameronj.

There's still more great drawings from scree to come. But today is my last day in the office before going on holiday, so here's a game from yours truly.

There's some kind of synergy between Wisehacker and scree going on. Yet again, he picked the ScribbleTaku pretty quickly: it was Another Code Dual Memories.

But Scree is undeterred. So today we have something a little different. Rather than a drawing, it's a digital painting.

It only took three minutes before Wisehacker picked up the most recent ScribbleTaku as Okami - which is testament to how on point scree's drawing was. Nice stuff.

But you're all good and relaxed. Maybe today's will be a little trickier.

Kicking off in 1986, Lucasarts presided over an era (running until around the year 2000) in which they were the adventure game Kings, releasing a string of titles that remain all-time classics even decades later.

One of the stars of A&E's Storage Wars, a reality show about storage locker auctions, landed an incredible deal on a locker stuffed full to bursting with vintage video game hardware and cartridges. It's a small fortune in games, over $US50,000 ($66,008) worth, enough for the buyer to call it one of his "best ever" buys.

Yesterday's game was Muramasa the Demon Blade: Rebirth, which a couple of people picked up. Nothappyjan and deku-tri: nice work. Let's see how you go with today's game.

Damn, you people are on a roll. I thought the hand icon from the original Planescape: Torment was going to last a lot longer than it did. But Crazyguy1990 spotted it out of nowhere - nice pick!

Today's game isn't drawn by me, but long time TAYbie scree. Who can draw 1000000% better than I can. Let's see if you can guess the game.
