comment What's this type of abstract, blended-color image called?
Maybe it's a greyscale Perlin noise image that's then been gradient mapped to colour? See also graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/1391/…

Agree, except it's probably more common to refer to 'information graphics' rather than 'informative graphics'.

comment How can I extrude in 3d based on color
Probably worth noting you can use a height-map in Photoshop lighting effects, but that's perhaps best described as shaded relief rather than extrusion.

comment What font is used in this “Reality” video games poster?
Yes, but (1) the user could run it themselves with the same results, and I think should be encouraged to do so before asking the question here (2) WhatTheFont's results are very patchy, e.g they seem to rate general proportion and weight over shape of letterforms. Impact is a very common font; it comes with either Windows or Office and is pretty easy to spot (3) Another answer provides the 100% correct answer and is currently scored lower.

Yup, it's Impact all right. It's possible that the deep crotch in the Y has been tidied up a bit.

comment What font is used in this “Reality” video games poster?
+1 for providing sources and inline effect notes, but -1 for just giving the not-very-close matches from an automated identification tool.
