Turns out a new quest set is up, but it doesn't seem to be live, yet.

To be fair, Perry, you never told me HOW to do it :P. However, he did tell me how to do it for the next set of hints:

Ryu was pretty hardcore on the NES.

They're like frogs, and are ready for war (Also racing).

This boy's pretty super, and loves all kinds of animal tissue.

I don't like being pegged as an attacker.

Well, at least I know this arm cannon can survive nine adventures.

On the Contrary, I'd say this game is quite difficult.

I don't like going to trial, but at least it's in high definition.

Spirits N' Orks wait that's not right...

Virgil's not going to happy about his brother waking up.

If falcon's had fists, they'd punch this Gamecube title.

What's better than a bonfire? Two of them.

Hope that helps!

Goes live in half an hour according to twitter.

@mosespippy:

I'm guessing that they're slowly rolling it out in that time, since another quest has popped up.

I went to all the Die Hard pages and nothing popped.

Day 1: And a game that took [insert current number of years] to make
Arguably the poster child for this
#6 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

@AlwaysBeClothing:

These quests seem like they're gonna be straightforward enough that hints won't be required, especially since there's a concept page for each one.

#7 Posted by yevinorion (700 posts) -

Well at least they didn't make this one limited edition so it could bug out and forever end people's dreams of having Abe Lincoln telling them how awesome they are.

#8 Posted by mosespippy (4278 posts) -

Are they activating daily? Right now only day 12 seems to be popping for me.

#9 Posted by Daniel (1523 posts) -

Quest is totally live now, folks. Enjoy!

If you have any bugs, please contact me. If you need hints, ask the intern Perry, as he put this Quest together.

#10 Posted by OldGuy (1566 posts) -
@mosespippy: That's how they've always* done it before.
 
*meaning last year.
#11 Posted by Daniel (1523 posts) -

@mosespippy: Yes I'll be adding in the new steps each day. Starting today with 12 and working down to 1 on Christmas morning.

#12 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

@Daniel:

Oh, so that's why the quests aren't working today? I thought it was because the site was down.

#13 Posted by vegoku (98 posts) -

I love this quest set. Oh the 12 days of whiskey :) fantastic

#14 Edited by Pessh (2459 posts) -

Can only find 11 hd collections =(
 
Nevermind lol

So only 12 is unlock-able today? Cool deal. Something to keep me coming back.

Crap, though. It really is less than 2 weeks until Christmas. Just over 2 weeks to 2012. Time flies when you're fighting dragons.

#16 Edited by VincentLonga (66 posts) -

So is one quest rolling out per day for this set? GREAT idea, like an advent calendar. But some clarity would be great here :)

EDIT: Ok, now I see. Yup, one per day for 12 days :)

via Twitter: "Twelve Days of Whiskey 2011 Quest is now live on giantbomb. Get started today on "12 HD Collections" and come back tomorrow for #11.:

I don't like how 2 of them are practically the same thing, but as long as I figured it out I guess its not a big deal.

#19 Edited by DuderMcBrohan (18 posts) -

Why the hell does wipeout HD not count as a HD remake?

EDIT: Disregard this. There's nothing here.

#20 Posted by Video_Game_King (36272 posts) -

@DuderMcBrohan:

Because this is about collections of games. (I am curious to see if Super Mario All-Stars counts for this, though, since it was the original HD collection.)

#22 Posted by mosespippy (4278 posts) -

@DuderMcBrohan: Is it a collection of more than 1 wipeout game?

#23 Posted by The_Reflection (251 posts) -

You can really just shotgun your way through this one today.

It had the same idea, though.

#26 Posted by TwoSe7enFive (63 posts) -

#29 Posted by CyleMoore (495 posts) -

This sucks cause I never get on the computer whenever I am off of work so I won't be able to complete this quest. Oh well I'll just be happy spending time with my family.

#30 Posted by ESREVER (2700 posts) -

Oh thank goodness this is 1 quest a day at a time. I was afraid my whole day was gonna be shot thanks to this. Whew!

I used that concept page and got only 11. help.

Edit: Nevermind that. Got it. One of those didn't work first time around.

#32 Posted by Potts (159 posts) -

Tomorrow's looks interesting, and probably a little tougher: 11 dog companions? I can only think of two off hand.

#33 Posted by Nictel (2429 posts) -

you gotta love those concept pages

#34 Posted by DuderMcBrohan (18 posts) -

On a side note, I thought it was weird that the art for God Complex is a magic the gathering card.

#35 Posted by Soviet666 (293 posts) -

Why is the obvious game not triggering the 14 years quest? Is it just me?

You can't do that one yet. That'll be the last one that can be done.

#37 Edited by Soviet666 (293 posts) -

I see... So i can do just one today? :). Cheeky giantbomb :P.

EDIT: Can't find the last one :(.

You have that problem, too? I also have all the Limited Ed quests, but it keeps telling me I don't have 6 Non Explosives Sploding, which was never a quest on Giant Bomb. I haven't missed Abe Lincoln this much since the day he was shot.

#39 Posted by guyver0 (159 posts) -

i thought the new halo would be one but no

#40 Posted by BombcastGoldthwait (250 posts) -

I think it has to be a collection.

#42 Posted by sins_of_mosin (1556 posts) -

That wasn't bad at all. I hope the rest of the days are as simple/fun.

Loved the first quest! Can't wait for tomorrow!

#44 Posted by YoungFrey (1321 posts) -

Why is this before Christmas?  Those days are after December 25th.  
 
From Wikipedia:

The Twelve Days of Christmas are the festive days beginning Christmas Day (25 December). This period is also known as Christmastide and Twelvetide. The Twelfth Night of Christmas is always on the evening of 5 January, but the Twelfth Day can either precede or follow the Twelfth Night according to which Christian tradition is followed. Twelfth Night is followed by the Feast of the Epiphany on 6 January. In some traditions, the first day of Epiphany (6 January) and the twelfth day of Christmas overlap.

Why are you trying to extend the Christmas season!?

Was the first one I went to as well, guess it doesn't count since it's not an HD collection.

#47 Posted by GooieGreen (454 posts) -

@Vexxan: Granted, there was a collection or two that I thought of that didn't trigger anything. But that is par for the course here.

@YoungFrey:

I'm not trying to extend it. I'm saying that anyone who traditionally celebrated 12 days of Christmas did it starting on Christmas, not ending on it. Growing up, the Nativity scene in my house didn't have wise men until January 5th. They sat on a shelf across the room to symbolism their journey.

#50 Posted by TheHakku (360 posts) -

They did this "Twelve Days of Whiskey" quest set the same way last year. Why does it matter? :/
