    I've got a coupon for Splinter Cell: Blacklist - who wants it?

    Last month I bought two GTX 780's, they both came with a coupon for Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the digital deluxe version. Naturally I've used one of them but I still have the other. I thought about putting it on eBay but then it's NOT FOR RESALE, as shouted in the terms, so I figured I might get into trouble. Besides at the price some are selling codes on eBay it's not worth the bother.

    The coupon is redeemable only from www.GeForce.com/FreeSplinterCell. That will generate a promo code which you'll then have to use in the Ubisoft store when you check out.

    So, who wants it?

    EDIT

    meloncrab won the code! This competition is now closed.

    Okay. Perhaps a little competition (to be honest I was expecting a little more interest - I never said the first person to reply would get it now did I?)

    If you can tell what computer game this pixel is from, Splinter Cell: Blacklist is yours. I'll PM you the code if you win.
    So the winner is the first person to tell me the game this pixel is from.



    Impossible? No. Tedious? Definitely, so this clue should help. Good Luck!

    Puzzles - always fun. I'm guessing it's FallOut: New Vegas.

    Mash -> Dash.

    The Hoover Dam -> Colorado. Boulder, as in Boulder, Colorado.

    Nice!

    Yay! I'll glady accept the code. That's very kind of you, should I ever stumble upon money I'll gift you something back.

    How I solved it: Merged the QR Code in paint, uploaded the picture to a QR decipher. This gave me coordinates, which led me to the Hoover Dam on google maps. I then first googled "Hoover Dash", which of course didn't exist. But "dash videogame" led me to Boulder Dash, which seemed appropriate, since it's old and pixely and has brown in it.

    Almost, Hoover Dam was once known as Boulder Dam. Cross out the "m" add "sh" = Boulder Dash.

    I guess you're not old enough to remember the halcyon days of the Commodore 64 then? The oblong size of the pixel is a dead give away!

    The code is yours, well done sir!

    Indeed. We need more riddles that I'm too simple to solve. Also I found Blacklist very enjoyable.
    Twitter! Occasional impressions on random sim games.
