Talkcordhaus VGM Guessing Contest #20: VERSUS! Big Dealer (CLOSED)

Post by Valentine »

Image
Hi I'm here to make people listen to music I like. That's all.

I've created a giant robotwhich will fight all of you in order to give all of you a sense of urgency and make my goal possible, his name is... The Big Dealer

Preparation Screen
-There are 50 Songs, these are The Big Dealer's 50 hitpoints (which you will never be able to take down! Muhahaha)
-There is 1 Imposter,
-Guessing what game a video game song is from will net you 2 points. If the song is a remix, you must guess the game the remix is from, otherwise it'll count as a series guess
-Guessing what series a video game song is from will net you 1 point
-Guessing which song is the imposter will net you 5 entire points
-Being the only person to guess which game/series a song is from will give you double points for that guess
-Being the only person to guess which song is the imposter will net you an additional 2 points, on top of the points for guessing the imposter correctly
-Songs are categorized into 5 difficulty levels, this has no implications on how many points they give you

Hints!
-You can PM me on here, or DM me on discord to ask for hints.
-I will let you have up to 3 hints, free of charge!
-You will lose 1 point for every hint asked after the 3rd one.
-You will lose 2 points for every hint asked after the 5th one.
-You will lose 3 points for every hint asked after the 7th one.
-You can ask for multiple hints for the same song, they will count as separate hints, and will get clearer the more you ask.

The Big Dealer's Weakspots (The Gimmick)
There are 12 songs which were picked in the accordance with the gimmick

The gimmick is Final Boss Themes, however, the way this is defined may be unusual. I will give you 2 definitions in this spoiler which all the songs that were picked abide by.
A final boss is a boss in a video game, which can trigger an ending cutscene/credits after being defeated..
A final boss theme is a song which is played during any part of an encounter with the final boss as defined above
Part of the gimmick is interpreting the gimmick, and thus I will not be answering any questions about it.

In addition to this, if you figure out which of these songs is my next D&D character theme i will give you 1 point (This is not a joke)

THE BIG DEALER'S ULTIMATE ATTACK (Deadline)
The deadline to get your guesses in is 24th October, 5:00 PM CEST by this point The Big Dealer will have charged his ultimate attack, and you will no longer be able to damage him. Until then, you are free to swap out your guesses, only your final list will be used to determine your score.


OH NO! THE BIG DEALER IS PREPARING HIS 50 SONG ATTACK, GUESS ALL OF THEM TO PARRY THE ATTACK

If the goal is to defeat the boss, does that mean we can collaborate?

Boo. I'll hold on to that idea for #22, though.

I've got positive ID on four, which is more than I expected.

Can't wait to see how many songs I should've known but didn't from this batch. Definitely not a strong run here this time.

I did about as well as I usually do with these contests, which means I got like five of them. I am definitely curious to see what a lot of these songs are
