The lights are on
A few months ago we brought you a hidden picture puzzle packed with characters, symbols, and items from gaming's past and present. This time around we've stuffed even more video game references into Borderlands' bleak and dusty landscape. Think you can find them all? Check out the full list below, and tell us how many you managed to spot in the comments section.

Love the Colossus!
When I got to number 17 I immediatly started looking for a trashcan.
Huh... this is.... this.
If I break a wall with my mind, will a pot roast come out?
Oh hey, I see myself - Toon Link!
Ok, Chiberatsu looks nothing like the real one. That has to be some kind of rushed mock up, or some art concepts from the game before a final version was approved. Granted it is small, but I know that character upside down and backwards and he looks different than what is up there...
I could never find Parappa the Rappa or the Golden Fruit Cake Label.. Whatever that is
Nice picture puzzle. I couldn't find the ones i didn't really know about but I laughed when I saw the N-Gage on the list
found 27 out of 29. =)
I lost track of how many I found... 3??
I really like the batman.
Borderlands art style actually makes it very easy to find all of these.
is this actaullay a place in borderlands? i dont think i have ever seen it
a sweet distraction. I see you, Quadratus. Trying to be all sneaky-like
so why is assey mcgee in this picture?
I thought #17 was a GBA.
Anybody find Parappa the Rapper?
Thank you Laleh... for both the eye strain and the fond memories.
Boned...Got them all. Should have used a bigger photo with more room to hide things.
I found all of them except Strider and Parappa the Rappa.
I could find most, but some are a b*tch to find.
