Rorschach Inkblot Test – Longshore

The Rorschach inkblot test is a common method of psychological evaluation used to examine personality characteristics and emotional functioning. The Halo version, where a global heatmap is substituted for the typical amorphous blob, sometimes yields the same results. And by sometimes I mean pretty much never. That’s not going to stop us from participating in the festivities though so let’s get started on some peer psychoanalyzing! First let’s take a look at the results from the last one we did (which focused on Orbital). Araknoros looked at the docking-station heatmap and instantly saw a Dead Space Plasma Cutter. Sticking with him and the general tradition of seeing video game-related things were Poopie McGhee, Awkward Silence, Kyle, and numerous others. I definitely see it, and I’m guessing you will too.

Orbital Dead Space Plasma Cutter


While Dropship dude didn’t see a Plasma Cutter, his suggestion of a handgun and knife combo was pretty solid, even without the handy dandy accompanying image diagram. With it though definitely sealed the deal.

Handgun Knife Combo Halo Heatmap

It was then that people noticed Jussy’s mention of the resemblance to Ren (a character from the television series The Ren and Stimpy Show), and after that it was all over. I think Louis Wu spoke for all of us when he said, “After reading Jussy’s answer, I can’t see anything BUT Ren.”

And with that, I think we can officially close the Orbital test. That’s good news because that means we can start another one! Up this week for your close examination is the global heatmap for Longshore, one of the newer maps to hit Halo 3’s matchmaking that is set in a fish-processing plant on the shores of Old Mombasa. So tell me, what exactly do you see? And as always, extra nonexistent points for originality!

  1. Meh. A circuit board is all that comes to mind. That and the number 2 in that main red block.

    • CrystaLightning says:

      I see a fetus.. a well endowed male fetus with a little tail or something.

      • CrystaLightning says:

        You can clearly see a head at the top, with eyebrows, eyes, nose, mouth and chin.

        • If you say so. I just don’t see anything good this time around. And apparently that warranted 3 thumbs down.

        • If we’re talking fetuses though, then I’m thinking of Giygas. http://www.freewebs.com/gamecoms/Giygas_Wallpaper.jpg

          With that said, I still don’t see a fetus. XD

    • P F Dulce says:

      Either the rug rats dinoaur or bonk

      • Topash says:

        • Rez says:

          I clicked the link, and that they just took the heatmap and colored it in. Yep, I support the E.T. lookalike.

        • Rez says:

    A cat going fishing, sitting on a car jack.

  57. the TOP HAT says:

    I see the large red thingy at the top to take upon almost the shape of a dragon. What comes to my mind is that of the small icons used in the Monster Hunter series that appear next to the log for whatever monsters you have slain. I can’t put my thumb on it, but to me I see what could be the Lao Shan Lung standing and facing to the left/west. If you know the series and the dragon, it may make sense to you; if not, I suggest you go look it up!

  58. Stuckers says:

    I see Luigi from Super Mario using a jackhammer. He’s looking down (light spots would be highlights for the hat) The spot on the far right, I would say is either a lifelike heart, a beast or a chunk of the ground Luigi is breaking up.

  59. Mr Poe says:

    turn your head to the right and the dark red spot looks like the boomshot from Gears of War 2…
