The lights are on
You've tracked down gaming's most memorable characters and icons in Arkham City, the barren wastelands of Pandora, and a Portal 2 test chamber. Prepare yourself for the greatest challenge yet, as Skyrim's ancient engravings reveal more hidden mysteries that only a gamer could appreciate.
By this point you probably know the drill. Game Informer's newest graphic designer Laleh Azarshin is a diabolical genius when it comes to hiding video game objects in a seemingly innocuous background. She also takes great pleasure in stumping even the most eagle-eyed readers, which this latest edition is sure to do. In the picture above you'll find 27 hidden video-game objects, including characters, items, and symbols.
To view the full wall (the above picture is only about a third of the entire image), click on the picture to open up the expanded view, then right click on the image and select "view image" or "open image in new tab" depending on your browser. Alternatively, you can right click on this link and open it as a new tab. Good luck!

The chocobo and Amaterasu were awesome renditions.
Found them all. This one was probably the toughest one yet because some of them blend in very well with the image. That adventurer like you was a tough one.
I thought this was pretty easy, hard the hardest time finding Navi
GI should be honored to have such a talented graphic designer. This is now my desktop screensaver. Great job Laleh!!!!!
Was able to find most of them before I even read them in the list. This could've been in an issue of Highlights. (Actually that'd be pretty awesome. Do they even print Highlights anymore?)
Really cool, but I don't know some of the characters.
I noticed that the inserted items look slightly different than the original stuff; they look smoother and cleaner.
there's no foxhound emblem. its the kojima productions logo. someone at GI doesn't know anything about metal gear.
I love you Zoom button.
The sweet roll made me crack up
I think the giants are dragonborn... they always take dragons one-on-one -_-
YER GURTA PERTECT YER SWEET RULL! I'm so sorry internet.
It looks like ancient graffiti, I like it.
....wow. That's all I have to say.
I found everyone except You and three enemies. I don't understand that one, but all in all, this is one of the easiest ones you've ever made.
Found them all, which is a first for me on these puzzles. I had to look in the comments to figure out what 27 was though. This one seemed easier than the others, at least to me. Easier to spot the intrusions.
