GUESS THAT TUNE: 4TH MIX
« on: July 31, 2009, 04:28:26 PM »

: Ladies and Gentlemen, over the years, I have been proud to present the finest in video game music trivia.

Now I bring you a tale full of love, honor, sacrifice, and a WHOLE LOT OF DESTRUCTION.


LET'S GET THINGS STARTED

GUESS THAT TUNE: 4TH MIX, WON BY THE APATHETIC NATION OF WHAT

OLD SCHOOL
Super Mario Bros 3 Map 05 World [NES]
Space Harrier Theme [MASTER SYSTEM]
Mega Man 2 - Intro Theme [NES]
Kirby's Dream Land - FLOAT ISLANDS [GB]
Battletoads - Arctic Caverns, Area 4 [NES]

GOLDEN AGE
Actraiser - Filmoa [SNES]
Ecco CD - Title [Sega CD]
Breath of Fire II - Cross Counter [SNES]
Phantasy Star II - Death Place [Genesis]
The Legend of Zelda - The Oracle of Ages - Crescent Moon Island [GBC]
Golden Axe - Death Adder [Genesis/ARC]
Myst I - Theme of Myst [PC]
Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble - Cranky's Showdown [SNES]
Secret of Evermore - Greek Temple II [SNES]
Duke Nukem 3D - Grab Bag [PC]

NEW CONTENDERS
ICO - Castle In The Mist [PS2]
Jet Grind Radio - Sneakman [DC]
Lunar 2 Eternal Blue - Field to Tommorow [SAT]
Pokemon FireRed/Leaf Green - Last Battle (VS RIVAL) [GBA]
P.N. 03 - Vanessa Z Scheider [GCN]
Tactics Ogre Let Us Cling Together - Prepare to Take the field [PSX]
Dirge of Cerberus - Fight Tune 'Arms of Shinra' [PS2]
Metal Gear Solid 2 - The World Only Needs One Big Boss! [PS2]
Mischief Makers - Marina [N64]
Resident Evil 4 - Agony [GCN/PS2]

MODERN AGE
Elite Beat Agents - Main Menu [NDS]
No More Heroes - LET'S FIGHT A BOSS [Wii]
Devil May Cry 4 - Blackened Angel (Fight With Dante 1) [360/PS3]
Lost Odyssey - The Gun Barrel Of Battle [360]
BlazBlue - MOTOR HEAD [360/PS3]

SUPER HARD
Beatmania IIDX 11 RED - PIANO Kyousoukyoku Dai'ichiban ''Sasoribi'' (PF Concerto No.1 ''Anti-Ares'') [ARC/PS2]
Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage - Niko [DC]
NiGHTS into Dreams - She Had Long Ears -Sonic vs Robotnik- [Saturn]
Harvest Moon: It's A Wonderful Life - Song of Homeland [GCN]
Wii - Weather Channel - Globe [Wii]



LAYOUT
There will be five blocks of songs for you to attempt to guess the details of. These details are:
[Artist OR Game used] - [Song name OR where song was used in game]
Both fields need to be filled out for complete credit, and each correct answer is worth 1 point. If a song has different titles across regions, any title works. If a song has multiple artists, any artist works.
EXCEPTION: Super Hard answers allow for partial credit: A correct artist/game used in Super Hard is worth a point, and a correct song name/where used is worth another point. Correctly answering an ENTIRE super hard song awards a bonus point.

Last year, and the year before, I ran with three blocks: Normal Mode, Hard Mode (remixes), and Super Hard Mode (Obscure). Sadly, those two years burned up all good remixes, so I am dropping that block, but attempting something a bit different. The five blocks this year are:
OLD SCHOOL: When Michael Jackson was known for his songs. (NES, Grey Brick Game Boy, Master System, Game Gear)
GOLDEN AGE: SEGA DOES WHAT NINTENDONT: (SNES, Genesis/Mega Drive, TurboGrafix-16, GBC, PC)
NEW CONTENDERS: The guys who make the walkman are making a GAME SYSTEM?!  (PSX, N64, Saturn, Dreamcast, PS2, Gamecube, Xbox, GBA, PC)
MODERN TIMES: MOTION CONTROLS! (360, PS3, Wii, DS, PSP, PC)
SUPER HARD: :lol: (Everything)

Teams will have two hours and five minutes to complete all five blocks. Songs will be rared and up for download ASAP, I hope to get it out a week before the contest. The RAR will be passworded.

When your team is ready to go, have one of you send me an IM or a PM on IRC. While I do like to sit in an IRC channel and watch your team go at it, and be there to answer difficult questions, my observation is not required. The timer starts the instant I give you the password, which is what the five minutes is for (Since unraring is rarely instant), so be prepared.

With the exception of Super Hard, any game whose song is in the blocks will have had a domestic release. Games whose release time in the US is under a later block than when it was released in Japan will have their Japan block used. (To simplify: Final Fantasy 5 was released for the SNES, but we did not get it until FFAnthology on the PSX. Any FF5 songs would be found under Golden Age)

RULES
NO AUDIO ANALYZING PROGRAMS OR WEB SERVICES. Someone last year used one of these and it ruins the whole spirit of the competition. Anyone caught using one of these will be instantly disqualified.
GOOGLEING IS ALLOWED. Sometimes songs have lyrics, and if you can make enough sense to google them, that is available.
WHEN YOUR TIME IS UP, HAVE ONE TEAM MEMBER SEND ME YOUR ANSWER SHEETS. Once that time is up, and your answer sheet is in, that's it. Your guess is locked in.
An answer key will be posted at the end.


Nations, sign up in here! Post questions if you have them!


READY, GO.

Someone has pointed out to me that 1:05 is not enough time to listen to all tracks concurrently, which is a very good point.

Analyzing, may lengthen time.

Almost complete. RAR will be up by the end of the week. If no one has webspace, I'll just use Megaupload/Rapidshare/whatever free service, switching as they get angry that I'm using it.

SIGN UP.

I keep meaning to turn hundredcoins.org into a filedump that y'all can just use.  Anyway in the absence of that you can just go ahead and catapult the files at me.

I will be out of town for a few days so if anyone wants to do it, now's the time.

Will arrange with a few people to be time keepers/password keepers/trapper keepers.

Informal polling of Third Nation citizens suggests I'm the only one doing this, but drethelin in #finalfight agreed to be a mercenary for me. We're ready when you are.

EDIT: SUBMITTED. Can you beat 4 points?! 'Cause that's how many I felt sure of.
