Recently, I finally joined the antisocial revolution and got myself a smartphone to stare at so that I don’t have to speak to my friends. I also downloaded Foursquare (along with the official PlayStation app, of course) and have been checking in more often than a librarian.
I particularly like the Badges and the little cryptic clues that you have to figure out to find them. They’re a bit like Trophies, and as Wikipedia tells me that Foursquare will allow users to create custom Badges at some stage in the future, I thought we could join forces and start planning some PlayStation-specific examples.
Drake, looking for the ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ Badge.
Here’s the idea: think of a real world location that also appears in a video game and come up with a witty name for the badge and a clue to guide people to it. Here’s are some examples. Can you guess what they are?
Doin’ the Chimeran Walk. Oi! – This London Borough towers above the rest in Resistance: Fall of Man.
That Belongs in a Museum – Where Nathan Drake ‘borrowed’ Marco Polo’s oil lamp.
Real Nightlife Simulator – Where the Gran Turismo series first went urban with the headlights on.
Add them into the comments – it’s up to you whether you tell us the answers or leave us to figure them out; I’ll check in over the weekend and any add more that I think of. Of course, you could use fictional locations if you’re really stuck, but you get bonus points if you keep it real.
