SMBX VGM Guessing Contest 2 (2 days left!)

Postby ShadowStarX » Sun Oct 09, 2022 7:39 am

Considering how it's been over a year, I think it was time for a new rendition of the Video Game Music Guessing Contest on the SMBX forums.

What is this?
At the bottom of this post you will find a zip file filled with 50 MP3 files, which are snippets of video game songs. You'll have to guess what game these segments are from. 2 of the songs are not from a video game though, thus they are a pair of Intruders and another song is both an intruder but also from a game, however guessing either way will make it count as an intruder. (a hypothetical example is a music theme first appearing outside a video game and then within a video game, such as a game song first being initially used in a movie)
You do not need to determine the title of the song, only the exact game source. In case of the intruders you only need to say whether it's the intruder or not.

Rules and notes:
  • Guessing a game correctly gives you 2 points
  • Guessing a franchise, but not a game, correctly gives you 1 point
  • Guessing an intruder correctly gives you 4 points (you can only get these points if your intruder guesses are no more than 2, as if you have 3 or more Intruder guesses, all of those will be nullified)
  • If you are the only person to guess something correctly, you will get bonus points for it
    • If you are the only one to guess a franchise right, you get 2 points instead of
    • If you are the only one to guess a game right, but others pick the correct franchise, you get 3 points instead of 2
    • If you are the only one to guess a game right and nobody else determines even the franchise correctly, you get 4 points instead of 2
    • If you are the only one to guess an intruder right, you will get 7 points instead of 4
  • Most of the time, only one song appears from each video game franchise. Spin-off series also count as separate franchises (e.g. Paper Mario or Mega Man X) Some exceptions may be present if a franchise has multiple genres present without making them into spin-offs. (e.g. The Legend of Zelda II - Adventure of Link)
  • You may ask for 3 hints in total, getting to know some information about the game the song is from. You can only use 1 hint per song.
  • You mustn't speculate about any of the songs publicly
  • Some of the songs are from mobile or web games

Deadline: November 21, Monday, 6 PM EST (Midnight CET, 3 PM PST)

Send me your submissions via PMs or Discord in a readable format.
If you wanna join, don't hesitate, as each snippet is just 25-45 seconds long and you can finish listening to the song bits after approximately half an hour.

Good luck to everyone and have fun!
