Quiz 152 answers will be posted tonight at midnight EST.

Here is our fifty-melody-long:
Guess-That-Soundbyte Midterm 154!

[Dropbox folder]

[Google Form]


This one was essentially procedurally generated by hand if that makes any sense at all. My methodology is in the spoiler below, but otherwise all you really need to know is that:
1. Each "series" according to NSM is used exactly once and there are 7 "Other" tracks.
2. The tracks are ordered by a vague conception of sales numbers. (More details in the spoiler.)

Methodology
For all randomness, I used Random.org. For each series, one game was chosen from all games with at least sheet on site with equal probability. Then I went to Khinsider (or YouTube if Khinsider didn't have it) and chose a track at random. Finally, I choose a timestamp at random and cropped it. I vetoed if (1) the soundbyte wasn't representative of the track or if (2) the track wasn't representative of the soundtrack. The games are ordered by "sales numbers" even though the results weren't all that reliable. If a game didn't have those published, I took the sales numbers for the series/mini-series and divided it by the number of games. If there weren't even series numbers, I put it at the bottom of the list.

Hopefully this methodology didn't yield a terrible quiz. It's made kind of obvious that making, for example, "Mario & Wario" and "Super Mario Odyssey" equally likely led to some weird results. In creating the quiz after this one, I used the Huntington-Hill method (the method the US government uses to apportion seats in the House of Representatives according to census populations) to apportion the number of melodies according to number of games on site.

Anyways, lol, have fun with this one. Since this one is longer and has more steps, this one should end a month from now on 12/29 at a time TBD.

Wow, that was real close for a bit. Here are the results:

By guesser
These are the submissions in chronological order:
A ‘+’ denotes that that guesser submitted another guess later.
[close]

Congratulations, mastersuperfan! Impressive that you got all of them except for #13 (and probably would’ve gotten that one too if it came down to it).

I first wrote out all the numbers everyone got, but I decided that was bland and was mostly meaningless. Instead, I made a little chart like this. Anyways, these guessers guessed these melodies:
A ‘0’ denotes missing the melody and a ‘1’ denotes guessing correctly.
[close]

Seems like Mario Kart is very well known. All but one of the guessers who got 5+ melodies right got all 5 Mario Kart melodies right. And sorry, Mario Party. You’re the real loser of this melody quiz unfortunately.
[close]

All other Melody Quizzers, I recommend you use Google Forms since that made that so much easier for me. Ultimately, you do you. Watching the results come in was fun too. IIrc, this quiz had more guessers than any other quiz I’ve ever done, so cool beans. Too bad, [second place winner], better luck next time.

IT'S BLUEKIRBY'S MELODY QUIZ 2, ELECTRIC BOOGALOO

This time, with 100% less Len'en*! And also an "Extra" difficulty?? *gasp*

Difficulties are same as last time plus Extra

Easy is well-known songs

Normal is either popular songs from weird games or just decently known songs

Hard is lesser known, but not downright obscure games or melodies late into songs

Lunatic is lesser known tracks from lesser known games, melodies late into songs, that kinda stuff. Also, no, #16 isn't from Touhou/Len'en. I mentioned it somewhere else, so it'd be fair to let everyone know.

Extra is a bit different. I plan to start experimenting with Extra difficulty in the future, but basically it'll be a set of songs that follow one specific theme and aren't counted as part of the score, but just a little bonus. This time the theme is: "Fangames/Fanmods". For the purpose of this theme, games heavily inspired by a particular series or multiple series, but not connected to, aren't counted as fangames (Len'en, Undertale, etc.), but fangames of those count. Also this was entirely for #25, which I guarantee no one will get, but that's fine because I only put it in for self-indulgence reasons.


BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE.

I'm also including a Micro-Quiz, consisting of 5 basslines! It'll be scored separately and is completely optional, so don't feel pressured to answer it!


again, .mus is poorly formatted and meant for listening. dm thru either here or discord. time will be at least 1 week, potentially more, depending on how lazy i am i feel.

And here's one hint: Excluding the Extra difficulty, only 1 series has more than one song, and that series is Kirby. Why? because i like kirby. Don't despair, however, as I still tried to get a decent variety of games! And you can ask for hints as well, don't worry!

Surprise everyone

Here's another quiz

Guess-That-Melody Quiz: MSF Round 29

For your convenience, I have sorted this quiz into three difficulty levels:
  • EASY (#1-10): Also known as the Insig difficulty. Either iconic tracks or tracks from popular games. I hope this section is pretty straightforward.
  • NORMAL (#11-20): Also known as the Latios difficulty. Not quite as well known as the Easy section, but hopefully fairly accessible to the NSM population.
  • HARD (#21-30): Also known as the Maelstrom difficulty. This is where tracks become trickier or more niche. I expect people to vary considerably in which melodies they do and don't get here.
  • MADDENING: Also known as the Static difficulty. I didn't do one this time because it probably would have been a waste of everyone's time.

Answers will probably be posted in a week-ish, maybe. Now go wild.
Logged
there's also a huge difference in quality between 2000 songs and 2010 songs
The difference between 2000 songs and 2010 songs is 10 songs.

"Startup" – [GCN] Nintendo GameCube BIOS

I don't really know what the time signature of this should be, but listening to it makes it obvious enough regardless. This was a free point for almost everyone.

This was also intended to be an easy point. It's a really iconic theme that people don't seem to mention a lot.

"Title Theme" – [GB] Kirby's Dream Land

Timestamp: 0:07

This one actually bamboozled some people because it just sounds like very generic Kirby, and it was hard to pin down where exactly it was from. I also didn't realize that the first measure of this melody is also in Greens Greens, which may have confused people.

"Dialga's Fight to the Finish" – [NDS] Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness

Timestamp: 0:45
YouTube Link

If there's any PMD track I can expected non-PMD fans to recognize, it's this one—partly because of Bespinben's infamous arrangements. This would never have gone into the Easy section except for the fact that this is NinSheetMusic, where everyone and their mother loves PMD.

Well known from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I don't really have much else to say because I've never played MOTHER 3, but I do hear that it's a good game.

"Title Screen" – [NES] Mega Man 2

Timestamp: 0:27
YouTube Link

So I thought this was iconic and thus would be easily recognizable, but it turns out that a lot of people actually don't know that this part of the theme exists. Whoops.

Also recognizable from the Mega Man 2 medley in Smash 4.

Quote from: Atcero
it sounds familiar
like the ending part reminds me of Megaman opening
and im pretty sure its from an nes game
(So close...)

#8 (12/21)
"Bad Apple" – [PC-98] Touhou 4: Lotus Land Story

Timestamp: 0:20
YouTube Link

This is probably the most famous Touhou track in existence (mainly in the form of this vocal remix), arguably even moreso than "U.N. Owen was her?". WaluigiTime64 actually used this track once before, but it was an obscure part that nobody knows, so this time, I decided to pick the part that people could actually get.

By the way, this metal cover with English lyrics by RichaadEB and Cristina Vee is one of greatest pieces of music I've ever heard. I highly suggest you take a listen if you have a few minutes to spare.

Quote from: Radiak488417
hey #8 is one of the three touhou songs that exist that i know

"View" – [GCN] Pikmin

Timestamp: 0:48
YouTube Link

AKA the World Map theme. As with many other tracks on this quiz, this one is well known from Super Smash Bros. Brawl. The track title in Brawl, "World Map (Pikmin 2)", is actually wrong because this is from Pikmin 1, not Pikmin 2, but I accepted it anyway because I was generous. You're welcome.

i'd just like to point out th thumbnail of the video that appeared when i looked up "pikmin map"
10/10
the description just reads "...What? I can't find Pikmi 1 boxart."
and it was from 12 years ago
some say this guy is STILL trying to find the pikmin 1 boxart, even to this day

Also found in Revali's theme.

Most of this track is a remix of Dragon Roost Island, so naturally, I picked the part that wasn't from Dragon Roost Island. This is a really nice track.

"Here We Are" – [PC] Undertale

Timestamp: 1:28

This is probably one of the few Undertale tracks that's obscure enough to warrant being put in the Normal section instead of the Easy section. Also, it's in 5/4 time, which is neat.

I don't actually remember this part of the game very well, but it seems like others do. Probably because I played Genocide at least seven times and Pacifist only once...

Quote
Yug Guy: #12 almost sounds like the Weapons factory theme from SMRPG lol

It also got a remix in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which is neat.

"Boss Battle" – [NDS] Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

Timestamp: 0:14
YouTube Link

#14 back at it again with a generic battle theme from a Mario RPG whose popularity I seem to have overestimated.

I picked this track because I'm pretty sure it plays, like, at least five times more than any other track in the game, so if there was any track you'd remember, it'd be this one. Unfortunately, I guess not a lot of people have played it compared to Superstar Saga and Bowser's Inside Story, which makes me a little sad because this game was my childhood. But oh well.

Quote

"Happy People" / "Congratulations, Everyone" – [NDS] Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney

Timestamp: 0:15
YouTube Link

*cue a woman with an afro yelling at you in a Southern accent*

I don't know why there are two completely different names for this title, but I accepted either one. This is a track that I think people probably wouldn't listen to often outside of the game, but is still memorable enough that people would remember it from the game itself.

With the number of quiz participants who have played at least the first Ace Attorney game, I thought this would be well known enough to warrant being placed in Normal instead of Hard, but it seems I was wrong. I'm glad that at least a few people got it, though.

"Id (Purpose)" – [3DS] Fire Emblem: Awakening

God-Shattering Star was supposed to go here, but BlueKirby used that in her last quiz, so I picked the next best thing as a replacement. I could have been nice and given the beginning part, but I was mean and transcribed the section very far into the track. Either way, fewer people got this track than I expected.

This was in Smash 4 and also got a remix in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as well.

It's desert music, but with trumpets! I just like desert music in general.

By the way, for those who were wondering, this is where the idea for a Squizzard emote came from:

Static: also known as slipsand galaxy
mastersuperfan: yes
Static: i love that track so much
mastersuperfan: the virgin dusty dune galaxy vs the CHAD slipsand galaxy
Static: true
Static: dusty dune: no squizzard
Static: slipsand: has squizzard
mastersuperfan: SMG2 is the best Mario game because it has squizzard
mastersuperfan: Squizzard for Smash
Static: small brain: mario 3d all stars is bad bc it doenst have smg2
Static: galaxy brain: mario 3d all stars is bad bc it doesnt have squizzard

Radiak488417: 17 is slipsand galaxy

Note: Before you tell me that this isn't a melody, I redirect you to timestamp 1:10. I just transcribed the extended line at 0:18 to make it easier.

So this is the second and probably last time I use a track from TWEWY. This is one of the most famous tracks from the game, so I was hoping for at least one person to come through here.

This track got a remix in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and was also briefly used in the recent NEO: TWEWY announcement trailer (which, by the way, I am very excited for).

RichaadEB and Adriana Figueroa also released an amazing cover of this last year.

Here are the results for my quiz! Thanks to everyone who participated! :D

#1 (5/16)
"Cave Dungeon" – [N64] Super Mario 64, also known as "Hazy Maze Cave"

Timestamp: 1:00
YouTube Link

This one's a bit tricky - the sheet on site uses cut time for this, and some may consider it more of a countermelody than a melody. I thought it was fair though, since it's clear, unobstructed, and memorable. Enough people got this one :P

Quote from: Radiak488417

this is a bad start

#2 (3/16)
"Beneath the Surface" – [SWITCH] Octopath Traveler

Timestamp: 0:38 (also played by other instruments throughout the piece)
YouTube Link

The best dungeon theme in the game :P the way the different instruments play this melody is suuuper pretty (and it's rhythmically interesting too).

Quote from: Static
2: Beneath the Surface - Octopath (aka best dungeon theme in the game)

Quote from: Kaphita

the like really really poetic one

#3 (4/16)
"Ezio's Family" – [MUL] Assassin's Creed II

Timestamp: literally the entire thing
YouTube Link

This is apparently a really popular song, but largely outside the realm of what people are familiar with at NSM, so I was curious how this one would do...

Quote from: Yug Guy

#5 (4/16)
"Smashing Song of Praise" – [GBA] Mother 3

Timestamp: 1:02
YouTube Link (also appears in “Unfounded Revenge / Smashing Song of Praise” from Super Smarh Bros. Brawl)

This piece has some rather abrupt mood swings, and this is one of the calmer parts. While short, this excerpt’s turns are super distinctive.

#6 (5/16)
"Peaceful Place" – [Wii] Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Timestamp: 0:00
YouTube Link

This one’s super distinctive, and most who got this one recognized it instantly from RtDL. Unfortunately it seems there isn’t a widely used naming system for its soundtrack...

#7 (8/16)
"Title Theme" – [N64] The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Timestamp: 0:43
YouTube Link

Every Nintendo fan is legally required to know this theme, so everyone who didn’t get this one will be banned immediately (though the slowness of this section makes it a bit tougher than the main high melody, so it’s understandable to miss)

Quote from: Dudeman
#7: Title - The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (lol I got it just from the first three notes)

"A Trainer Appears (Girl Version)" – [GB] Pokémon Red Version & Pokémon Blue Version

Timestamp: 0:01
YouTube Link (also appears in "Trainers' Eyes Meet (Girl 2)" from Pokémon Gold Version & Pokémon Silver Version)

This should sound familiar to anyone who’s played Gen 1, Gen 2, or their remakes :P

Quote from: mastersuperfan

#9 (2/16)
"Mystifying Forest" – [NDS] Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness

Timestamp: 0:45
YouTube Link

Much of this song is similar in style, so even though it’s the end of the loop it’d probably sound familiar if you’ve played through the post-game before. I think this one was roughly the hardest one I put on the quiz.

Quote from: mastersuperfan
I feel like it should be somewhat easy to pin down as "sounds like something from PMD2 somewhere maybe"
for those who have played the game

#10 (2/16)
"Choose Your Pipe" – [GB] Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, also known as "File Select"

Timestamp: 0:19
YouTube Link

I did not expect this one to be the one with the least correct guesses. Though I guess there’s not much reason to stay on the file select screen until this part plays…

Radiak was painfully close (yet not close) when the pipe room from Super Mario GALAXY 2 came to mind...

#11 (4/16)
"Flower Fields" – [Wii] Kirby's Epic Yarn

Timestamp: 0:38
YouTube Link

This one... I had no idea how it would go because this section is not very distinctive when you strip it down to its melody, even though it’s quite a widely known track. In the end, I was surprised more people didn’t get this one :P

  • mastersuperfan
  • Static

#12 (8/16)
"Shop" – [GB] The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, also known as some other stuff.

Timestamp: 0:00
YouTube Link

This one’s probably the most distinctive melody on the quiz, with its tipsy chromatics. Though I’m not sure if I’d have even remembered where it came from if I took my own quiz. A bunch of people got this one :P

#14 (2/16)
"Lockstep" – [NDS] Rhythm Heaven

Timestamp: 0:29
YouTube Link

One of my favorite Rhythm Heaven tracks. The melody, especially in this section, really takes the front seat contrary to many other minigames where a rhythmic figure stands out more than the melody itself.

The NSM Guess-That-Melody Quiz! - Levi's 3rd Quiz
« Reply #2169 on: January 14, 2021, 04:59:48 AM »

After a four year hiatus following his last quiz that drove everyone bonkers...

...he's back, baby! The creator of...

The NSM NotUntilLately Guess-That-Melody Quiz!

Yes, I've returned after a sudden urge of motivation (pressed by lack of motivation to practice my sax,) and made a brand new quiz with fifteen melodies! This time around, I've got a reformed sense of judgement. That means no:

- Satellaview music
- Mega Man Game Boy music

-- nor any music I know that no one but me would recognize!

This time, I've used music from games I've never even played, to make sure everyone gets a chance to hear something they know. The first twelve melodies are at a normal difficulty, and the last three are especially obscure, but still notable in some sense. We'll just have to see how well you all do!

Here's Quiz #3!

1.13.21 Melody Quiz.zip

Have fun playing! I'll post the answers once I feel enough people have played.

(Will you accept this quiz as an apology, Dudeman?)

Hey guess what

it's me again

Guess-That-Melody Quiz: MSF Round 30

This time, there are only 20 melodies. I have abolished the difficulty levels in favor of using random.org to sort everything into an incomprehensible mixture of whatever. No more Easy section for you!

EDIT: I'll add that there are four Mario melodies on this quiz. Other than that, no series is represented more than twice.

Answers will be posted about a week from now.

Convo with mastersuperfan about this one
mastersuperfan:
yeah now I do recognize the atmospheric sound effect
yeahhhh
good thing I asked for a hint lol
wait
is this even from the same track?
ShyYoshiGuy:
Fairly certain. I downloaded it from a YouTube video like that
One of the few I couldn't possibly find on Khinsider
mastersuperfan:
I think they're different tracks... I found the one that matches the 5-second version but not the ambient one
ShyYoshiGuy:
The ambient noise is at the end for some reason
mastersuperfan:
well
I'll just submit the title for the 5-second one for now
ShyYoshiGuy:
Ok
mastersuperfan:
and if it's right, I'm interested to se what youtube video you're using that has that ambient sound effect at the end
ShyYoshiGuy:
Sounds like a deal
mastersuperfan:
submitted
ShyYoshiGuy:
So yeah, that's the game
The other two gave a different title
mastersuperfan:
this is the track you sent me as the 5-second one
hence why I think they're from different tracks
ShyYoshiGuy:
And the YouTube video has a third title
I'll give it to you because this is so confusing. Track names are annoying
mastersuperfan:
yeah I think you need to double-check the video you're using
ShyYoshiGuy:
https://youtu.be/UmUX10xFatQ
mastersuperfan:
yeah so I think whoever used this video forgot to crop the end part off
which belongs to a different track
ShyYoshiGuy:
Lol
That's funny
mastersuperfan:
yeah did they say "A Desolate World"?
ShyYoshiGuy:
You're right. It sounds like the following song in the playlist
mastersuperfan:
or "Ruined World"
ShyYoshiGuy:
They said "Time Gate"
mastersuperfan:
there's... not even a track called "Time Gate" in the soundtrack
as far as I can tell
ShyYoshiGuy:
I don't even know
mastersuperfan:
also
the track after this one in the playlist
"24 Ruined World"
this is actually the wrong track lol
Ruined World/A Desolate World is a different track entirely
so the person who made this playlist is smoking something strong
ShyYoshiGuy:
Lol
This is what happens when I make Melody Quizzes of games I'm unfamiliar with, lol
mastersuperfan:
yeah so I looked into it some more
this track was not actually included in the released soundtrack

Congrats, Radiak488417! mastersuperfan, you were so close.

I’m never doing one that long again (in one session), I’m never doing cheats again, I’m never doing series guesses again. Lesson learned.

Differences:
This quiz is graded cumulatively. For example, if you get 2 on quiz d and 1 on quiz g, you'd get a score of 3 overall.
If there's a Melody that no one guesses, everyone will be given a hint each round until one person gets it.
No cheats or series guesses this time.
You can DM me in order to confirm that a song comes from a certain game before searching through an OST.

Guess-That-Soundbyte Exam 160! no, it's not factorial
Google Form Link!

Melodies are distributed between series using the Huntington-Hill method, where each series gets at least one melody. At the beginning of each round, I'll give you this list with all of the guessed melodies removed. As such, this list will become more and more useful as we approach the end:

36 - Other
8 - Super Mario
4 - Pokémon
3 - Mega Man
3 - Kirby
3 - Legend of Zelda
2 - Donkey Kong
2 - Final Fantasy
2 - Castlevania
2 - Fire Emblem
2 - Touhou
1 (each) - List in spoiler below:
Each of these series appears once.
Sonic
Metroid
Harvest Moon
Mario Party
Prof. Layton
Dragon Quest
Mario Kart
Megami Tensei
Ace Attorney
Metal Gear
Xeno
Animal Crossing
Banjo-Kazooie
Kingdom Hearts
Paper Mario
PMD
Star Fox
Smash
Bomberman
Drakengard
FNaF
Mana
Monster Hunter
Rhythm Heaven
Chrono
EarthBound
F-Zero
Golden Sun
Kid Icarus
SaGa
Tales
Pikmin
Undertale
[close]

Edit: Oh yeah, these are numbered starting with 0 for a reason. The first digit will tell you which quiz it originally came from. For example, melody 69 is the 70th overall and the 10th melody on the 7th quiz. If that confuses you, then don't worry about it.

Hellloooo there, quizzers! Welcome back to...

The NSM NotUntilLately Guess-That-Melody Quiz!

We had a great turnout this time; that's good enough for me to promise more quizzes in the future. I'll bet you're all anxious to find out which ones you missed, so here they are!


The Answers
Normal Section


Melody #1
1. [SNES] The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - "Hyrule Castle"



Timestamp: 0:56



Quote
[10:29 PM] Maelstrom: 1 is farewell hyrule king
Quote
[6:24 PM] Yug Guy: #1 - Ganon's Theme

I blame myself.

This was that one melody I wasn't all too familiar with myself (I'm not a Zelda fan), but I figured it would be one of the easier ones to pick out.

Guessed by: mastersuperfan, Static, Dudeman, Radiak488417, Jake_Luigi, Latios212, WaluigiTime64, BlueKirby, Maelstrom, Atcero, Dekkadeci

Melody #2
2. [MUL] Sonic Mania - "Studiopolis Zone, Act 1"



Timestamp: 0:55



I don't like Sonic the Hedgehog as a game, but this is one of them I can appreciate, for two reasons: 1.) Fan service, and 2.) Music. Turn it up!

Guessed by: Static, Dudeman, Radiak488417, Jake_Luigi, WaluigiTime64, Yug_Guy, Maelstrom, Atcero, Dekkadeci

Melody #3
3. [NES] Super Mario Bros. 3 - "Ending"



Timestamp: 0:50



Quote
[8:48 PM] Radiak488417: oh 3 is the smb3 credits duh

You wouldn't believe how happy 14-year-old me was to finally hear this. Nearly brought me to tears.

Melody #4
4. [SWITCH] Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield - "Battle! (Battle Tower)"



Timestamp: 0:07



Quote
[6:15 PM] Radiak488417: 4 is megalovania from pokemon sword and shield
Quote
[10:06 PM] BlueKirby: 4 is the baby is you battle tower from pokemon sw/sh
Quote
[10:38 PM] Static: hm

[10:38 PM] LeviR.star: pokemon
[10:39 PM] Static: wow
[10:39 PM] Static: i was way off
[10:39 PM] Static: but it still sounds familiar
[10:39 PM] Static: i wouldnt know it tho if its pokemon

Only a composer like Toby Fox would reuse material when asked to write a song for the biggest video game franchise in the world.

And somehow, his least memorable work since his Homestuck era ended up being the most memorable song in the game. Go figure.

[10:41 PM] mastersuperfan: don't tell me
[10:41 PM] LeviR.star: i won't
[10:41 PM] mastersuperfan: but first stop, Kirby's Adventure
[10:41 PM] LeviR.star: this'll be interesting

Folks, this game would probably be your favorite Kirby title if you had friends to play it with.

No wonder it wasn't my favorite...

[6:24 PM] Yug Guy:#7 - ...is this from Star Wars?
Quote
[6:24 PM] Radiak488417: i'm assuming i'm not the only one who's pointed this out but #7 sounds like star wars

Well, Nobuo Uematsu is practically the John Williams of the VGM world, I'll give you that.

Melody #8
8. [Wii] Super Mario Galaxy - "Buoy Base Galaxy"



Timestamp: 1:14



Quote
[6:24 PM] Yug Guy: #8 - pretty sure this is the title theme to one of the Mystery Dungeon games... Super Mystery Dungeon?

Presenting my favorite game ever: Super Mario Galaxy. If you don't know at least one song from this OST, I feel sorry for you.

Melody #9
9. [GB] Pokémon Red Version & Pokémon Blue Version - "Cycling"



Timestamp: 0:23



Quote
[6:24 PM] Yug Guy: #9 - I want to ride myyyyyyyy
Quote
[10:26 PM] mastersuperfan: now that I think about it, #9 sounds like old Pokémon
[10:26 PM] mastersuperfan: I just didn't think you would use two Pokémon tracks on one quiz when you haven't played it

[10:27 PM] mastersuperfan: so #4 actually counts as an Undertale track instead of a Pokémon track which means #9 can be Pokémon too
[10:27 PM] LeviR.star: could be...
[10:27 PM] mastersuperfan: it has to be
[10:27 PM] mastersuperfan: I swear

What a fun little song this is. This tune had several folks scratching their heads -- and others pulling their hair out.

[10:52 PM] mastersuperfan: I don't even know why I know this
[10:52 PM] mastersuperfan: I've never played Metroid

I'm 90% sure most of our guessers only remember Brinstar's theme. For shame, people.

Melody #11
11. [ARCADE] Contra - "Jungle"



Timestamp: 0:24



This melody's outcome was an even bigger disappointment than the last's. After all the hints I dropped in the Discord...

Guys! This is the Contra theme everyone should know! I would've even accepted the NES rendition!

Melody #12
12. [NES] Mega Man 3 - "Hard Man Stage"

[9:09 PM] Dudeman: #12: Hard Man Stage - Mega Man 3 (more like easy-melody-to-guess man, amirite nyuk nyuk nyuk)
Quote
11:12 PM] mastersuperfan: "hey I have a hard mega man melody for you and I wanna see if you can get it"
[11:12 PM] mastersuperfan: and I picked the two measures of the lower voice when the upper voice is doing those 16th note arpeggios
[11:12 PM] mastersuperfan: and I sent it to him and he's like "hard man?"
[11:12 PM] mastersuperfan: and I'm like "see I told you it was hard"

Joking aside, I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome of this melody; a decent number of people got it. Well done!

[10:50 PM] Dudeman: I should've freaking known you would've used the GB version

6:44 PM] Radiak488417: yep it's from cv legends
[6:44 PM] Radiak488417: that's terrible why would you do that
[6:45 PM] LeviR.star: it's in the last 3
[6:45 PM] LeviR.star: they're supposed to be hard, remember?
[6:45 PM] Radiak488417: oh true

This was picked especially to screw with the guessers. And while it was pretty mean, nearly everyone who got it adopted the same strategy: scrub the "all versions" video.

So, in the end, was it really all that hard?

Disappointed, but not surprised

It's too bad our Dragon Quest section is so empty. But maybe it's for the best -- orchestra doesn't translate well to the keyboard.

Time for my first quiz in ages! I hope the winning score is above 4 this time...

MELODY QUIZ NEW

As a special bonus, I will give everyone one (1) hint. They can ask what instrument plays a specific melody and I will answer in a somewhat vague and specific way.
