🎵TALKHAUS VGM GUESSING CONTEST #24🎵 [Closed]

Post by SAJewers »

Hey! It's one of these again! I'd say more, but it's getting late and I want this up before I go to bed. I probably made a mistake and will fix it tomorrow if I did.

THE GIMMICK
This contest has 60 songs. 49 songs appear in a published video games, 9 songs are remixes, covers, or arrangements of video game music, some of which may or may not have appeared in ROM Hacks 👀, and 2 are intruders (one of which is a remix, so technically there's 10 remixes)

SCORING
Scoring is the same as in previous contests, which a twist for the gimmick:
  • 2 Points for a correct answer
  • 1 Point for a half-correct answer (eg. correctly guessing the series, but not the exact game)
  • 9 Bonus points for correctly guessing which 9 tracks are Remixes/Covers/etc., 1 point each (no bonus points for Remix Intruder)
  • 5 Points for correctly guessing the intruders
  • 2x Points for having the only correct answer (not including the intruders)
HINTS
I'm doing the same thing I did six years ago when I hosted this before, to make things easy on me:
  • You may only ask for 1 hint per track
  • Each contestant is allowed 3 hints without penalty.
  • You will be deducted 1 point for every hint after 3
  • You will be deducted 3 points for every hint after 7
  • Some hints may be useful, some may not; Take caution on how you use them!
  • While there's no restriction on how many hints you can request, Don't be that guy and request a hint for every track
  • You may request hints via PM, Discord message or this thread
HOW TO PLAY
To play, simply send a PM or Discord message to me. Feel free to send as many as you need. If you change your guess for the intruder, I'll accept your latest guess (so if you first guess #3, then say in another PM it's #46, I'll take #46 as your guess), but I won't accept multiple guesses in 1 PM (so no "it's either #54 or #12")
Deadline is October 14th.

Good Luck and Have Fun.

It looks like Chicago FLF, but it might be another Chicago descendant I don't know about.

Chicago was the default Mac system font for a while, and a pixel version of it was used in games like FF6 and Chrono Trigger which went on to make it a popular font in fan translations and ROM hacks, too, so I'm certain you've seen it around xD

oh fuck shit right.

im so used to like a bunch of fan trans using the ff6/ct one verbatim. like the planet laika translation just uses the ff6 font straight up with similar palette. desperately need to play that shit (laika, that is) and figure out how to decypher kowloon's gate unless it gets a translation later on

there was another recent psx one that used it but it escapes me, it's deffo not ecsaform and i think it's not racing lagoon. MAYBE dr. slump or some obscure budget title?

but yeah chicago, ms gothic, etc just look comforting. i even like anime ace despite being The Only Scanlation Font Ever

Ah, the old second guessing deal of wondering if it's an official remix that was done for a game or by a fan. Eight for sure landed on my first pass with around about that many more where I'm doing that game in the first sentence.

okay, so, theoretically, if a song appears to be a remix comprised of the melody of a song from game 1 performed in the style of a specific song in game 2. do we have to guess game 1, game 2, or is it sufficient to say it is a remix?

Guess Game 1, and say it's a remix.

I think either the downloadable song numbering or the forum post song numbering is off by 1 number. Song #60 in the download is song #1 in the post.

21) This song was composed by someone well known for a series by Konami

23) One could argue this could’ve been a Not-Sonic

26) The music in the game had to be replaced after release for legal reasons.
27) “TIM, IT WAS JUST <game>” - YT comment
28) raocow played this before

40) Originally an adult title released on a Japanese Computer, it was remade and released on Switch
41) From the 4th instalment of this sports franchise.
42) Weird oddball title released only in Japan, possibly because the system it released on wasn’t popular in North America.
43) Not Outrun, but an interesting attempt
44) I bet if I used the Arcade version of the song one might better recognize it
45) Yes it’s what you think it is; no, it was not made by nintendo

47) For all you crafters out there.
48) This homage to 8bit games was added to Steam via Greenlight

52) Probably one of the more popular songs in this series known for it’s music
