Winter Solstice 2019 VGM Guessing Contest

Pages: « 1 »
6 months later, it's time for another! Welcome to the Winter Solstice (or Summer Solstice, for our friends in the Southern Hemisphere) VGM Guessing Contest! Sinc-X and I, bebn legg, are back with 100 (+7) more song snippets from all sorts of video games for you guys to guess the origins of!

While there are no high-quality rips this time around, the EXTREME category returns, featuring 7 ridiculously obscure songs that you most likely have never heard of!

However, out of the 107 total songs, three of them are actually not from video games. There are two impostors somewhere in the whole selection of songs. But going even further, there's an additional impostor song somewhere in there that's composed by one of us specifically for this contest, which we dub the composter. Identifying these will net you bonus points.

The rules are simple.
For each snippet, guess the name of the game the song is from. You can include the track name if you want, but it's not necessary.

Guessing the name of the game correctly will net you 2 points.
Guessing the series the song is from will net you 1 point.

And of course, there are bonus points to hand out as well!
-Each correctly identified impostor will net you an extra 1 point.
-Correctly guessing an EXTREME song will get you 2 extra points.
-If you're the only person to identify a song, you get an extra 1 point.

For the impostors, you can list where the song is originally from, including track name, album, composer, or any other relevant information, should you know it, for that to count as correctly guessing the game. You can also guess a song as being the impostor without knowing its origin; if you're correct, you'll still receive the bonus points.
For the composter, since there's no origin, simply label it as the composter to get a total of 3 points.
There are no penalties for incorrectly guessing the impostors, so guess away!

The top 3 participants will receive a lovely, pretty, marvelous, cute trophy!

You can find the songs here! (alt mirror)

Of course, to keep the contest fun and fair, don't reveal your guesses to anyone else! If you share your guesses publicly, you'll automatically be disqualified from the contest and be banned for a few days. It sounds extreme, but it's just to make sure things stay fun!

Submitting your guesses
Compile all your guesses in a neat, organized format, and send them via site PM or Discord DM to either Sinc-X or myself (bebn legg), by January 4th 2020, 23:59 EST. You've got two whole weeks right until the beginning of C3 to submit your guesses. If you're not submitting a guess for a particular song, there's no need to include it in the list you're sending us. If you remember a song after you've already submitted your guesses, no worries, just send us another PM or DM, we'll compile everything together in the end.

Bonne écoute! ♫
I will be offering a $25 (USD, converted to your equivalent currency) Amazon gift card to whoever places first. Now you really have incentive to get those guesses in!

Something to keep in mind - if a song is an arrangement/remix of another song, we are looking for the game the REMIX comes from, NOT the original song. You will get no points for identifying the original source if it is not from the same series/game the remix is from.

no one told me we were running a kaizo contest this year, because this girl right here guessed a whole 3/107.

--------------------
yeah, I was about to say; this is much harder than the last contest LOL

I managed to guess a few, but most of the other ones I either have vague ideas about the original's sources or can't guess the original at all

I have a Discord server as well!

I may have canceled my level, but I've never said I could change my mind and get ideas.

I can't believe everybody missed the deadline 😔

In all seriousness, thanks for catching that! I'm not very good at being a calendar.
Yikes. On the first pass I immediately recognized and have the name of 9 of them (one of them I have a feeling is a trick), which is pretty bad. Hopefully some more come to me before the deadline comes around.

Team 3/107 lol

Although i haven't entered the last contest, i did download the songs and checked them out, and i gotta say i personally find myself having an easier time with this one compared to the last.
I could immediately recogzine 3 of the songs, and i have a vague idea on a few others. (while in the previous contest i could only recogzine 1...)
But i don't really expect to go well in such a contest since my knowledge of VGM is rather limited. (even though, ironically, that's the main musical "genre" i listen to)

All right, finally submitted my answers. After obsessing over this for a few days, I managed to figure out 23 of the tracks for sure, but I have a bunch of game/series guesses that I'm confident about as well. The worst feeling ever is when something sounds too familiar but you just can't remember it...

A lot of the ones I didn't know sound really beautiful though. Somewhat really excited for the results!
I know a few of them but not enough to win so I'm not entering.
I'm only waiting for the results to see where some of these bangers comes from. 14 sound great.
I wonder when the results are expected to come out? I was able to positively identify 20 of them, but that puts be behind K.T.B.'s 23, unless I unexpectedly get enough points from series/imposter guesses to exceed K.T.B.'s score. Still, I'd like to know if I'm at least in the top 3, and there are a bunch of songs that I'm curious to know what they are.
Results are on the way soon! Sinc and I have been a little bit swamped with school lately so apologies for the slight delay. We're about halfway done compiling everything together.

That's basically the entire reason why i've been looking forward to these results!
As i said, from the start i knew i can't expect to compete with the top "VGM guessers" of the community (although the 7 games i managed to guess are already more than i initially expected, so i'm happy with it!), but i'm really curious to find out some of the songs that have been in my head for a while now! (including a few i got soooo close to guess, but just not close enough)

It's been a few weeks since the previous post here, so I figure I'll chime in again. Are the results of this contest almost ready to be shown?
They're getting there. Sorry for the delay, once again. Sinc's been focusing his energy on finishing up BLDC judging first. It hopefully shouldn't be too much longer.
So......any update on when the results are coming out?

Once again, sorry for the delay. Life's been pretty busy. Ideally, the results should be done by next weekend at the latest.
Oh, I just noticed the results had been out for about a week now. I had this thread bookmarked, but wasn't checking elsewhere until I stumbled upon it randomly here just now. Okay, let's see what all those songs were...
