Hi all,

I have been a member of and mentored a high school robotics team in the FIRST Robotics Competition for a while now. This is my 7th season. During my rookie season we switched our logo to this:

I am here because I am pretty sure the silhouette of this team of people is from a video game ad that I'm pretty sure I remember seeing in a magazine. The student who created it was also very into video games. Probably around 2007 or a bit earlier/later. All I can tell you is that the left person is a woman and that the left and right figures seem to be wearing goggles.

It is not TF2 or Borderlands, and I think it is a PS2-era game. One other suspicion I had a while ago was City of Heroes, but I don't think I ever found any promotional art for the game that looked like this. I may be mistaken on that fact.

I've been trying to find/recall the game or ad this was from, and figured maybe you guys and gals might know what it was from the silhouette. Thanks for any help or guesses!

I want to say Fighting Force, but none of the art I can find matches those silhouette positions.

That reminds me of Fighting Force. But the hair doesn't look to match up...

Right on, beat me by a hair!

Borderlands? Team Fortress 2?

The OP already mentioned that it's not Borderlands or TF2.

Came in here to say that it reminds me of Fighting Force but I guess I got beaten to it.

I was kinda reminded of Monday Night Combat, but that can't be it.

Could it be some random comic book pose of the Fantastic Four? Those movies were coming out back then and the kid could have snagged it off a google image search.

Could just be me, but it looks like there is 5th person in the middle. Not sure what could cause that hump other than 5th head.

Reminds me of Teen Titans.

I have no idea. I looked through the games released in 2007 but didn't find anything that looked like it would match. It does look like it's borderlands or maybe torchlight. But yeah, I couldn't find any box art.

You might also want to look into Saturday morning cartoons that would have been on tv in your region.

Is it Monday Night Combat?

#12 Posted by Akeldama (4248 posts) -

Fuck OP, that is Borderlands.

#13 Posted by Soapy86 (2622 posts) -

I was going to say Fighting Force as well.

#14 Posted by Dick_Mohawk (378 posts) -

It kinda reminds me of Brute Force, not box art though. I think it was some sort of poster given away in a magazine that I'm thinking of.

How is that not Borderlands?

#16 Edited by JCTango (1362 posts) -

@lazarenth: kinda looks like borderlands 2 to me

Whoops guess you already mentioned it isn't that - but seriously that's what it looks like haha.

#17 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

That could be Borderlands 1. 
I specifically remember Mordecai having a pair of pointy boobs ohwaitno

#18 Posted by TobbRobb (4653 posts) -

Yeah it totally looks like Borderlands XD

Oh well, no idea.

Too generic looking really so I'd say just skip trying to find out, there's really not much to go on. Probably more comic book than video game in origin if it came from that.

#21 Posted by Nux (2360 posts) -

I know OP said that its not Borderlands but it totally looks like Borderlands.

#22 Posted by TaliciaDragonsong (8699 posts) -

I should stop coming to Gamefaqs.
Oh wait this is Giantbomb. Coulda fooled me.

#23 Posted by StarvingGamer (8250 posts) -

My first thought was also CoH. That's all I've got.

#24 Posted by Ghostiet (5281 posts) -

Borderlands, dude.

I was also thinking of a relatively obscure Core Design game - Project Eden.

You just made coffee shoot out of my nose.

The Doom Patrol?

@ShadowConqueror: A potential hot lead me thinks!

OverStrike?
 
I actually think this might be a cartoon, cos I just went through all the 4-player co-op games. The key ingredient would be finding a big guy with those massive flared-out gloves.
Oh also ask whoever made the logo.

#33 Posted by lazarenth (28 posts) -

Thanks for your guesses all. I've asked the creator many times but he can't remember what it came from.

I am pretty sure it is not TF2 or Borderlands unless it is from a piece of concept art that I haven't found.

I'm thinking it might not be a video game if no one has recognized it yet.

#34 Posted by MordeaniisChaos (5730 posts) -

It's definitely "traditional" art. Comic or cartoon of some kind.

#35 Posted by tkalsey (155 posts) -

Even though OP said no, I still believe that it's Borderlands

#36 Posted by cthomer5000 (795 posts) -

Has to be the Fantastic Four.

Brad has a nice rack.

#38 Posted by xyzygy (9996 posts) -

It looks to me like it might be a few Batman villains circa Animated Series.

I see death. Wait, this IS a Rorschach right?

#40 Posted by Dethfish (3667 posts) -

I definitely thought Borderlands at first glance.

I could use a little help myself. Which one is this?

#41 Posted by buft (3317 posts) -

Borderlands

Man that Silouette is so generic it could be any game with selectable characters .Just to pull one out of thin air could it be Streets of Rage 2 ?

#44 Posted by Oginam (447 posts) -

Can you be more specific about the date or time frame for when the logo was made?

Also, I think the key to finding this is going to be the big guy with the flared out gloves AND his association with a female hero that appears to be wearing a skin tight face mask.

Created in early 2007. Like, between the start of the year and March.
