Welcome to the the Videogame Music Guessing Game <GAMEFAQS THREAD>! This place is usually only <ACTIVE WHEN PEOPLE ANNOUNCE A GAME>. To enter the game, simply:
-<JOIN THE BOARD 8 DISCORD http://discord.me/board8>;;;
-join the <#VGMGG> voice chat
-listen to what music is playing
-be the first to guess what song is playing and/or what game the soundtrack is from to get points
The game gets harder as time goes on, starting with easy songs and ending with almost impossible to guess songs.

Here are the rules. Make sure you read them properly since the game is a bit complex:
-You get 1 point for each correct guess, such as the name of the game or the song's name. This means you can get 2 points per song. When the song name isn't guessed, you can get points for explaining where/when the song plays.
-INSANE DIFFICULTY gives you 3 points instead of 1 for any correct guesses.
-Incomplete guesses get 0.5 points. This means saying Paper Mario instead of Super Paper Mario, for example. Incomplete guesses give 0 points in insane mode.
-Vague guesses get no points. This goes for saying Pokemon or Mario on their own instead of the game itself as they are huge series.
-Abbreviations are fine as long as they aren't vague. This means saying OoT instead of Ocarina of Time is fine. Typos are also fine.
-You are not allowed to guess "stage 1, stage 2, stage 3" by spamming. This also means something like Megaman 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.
-No googling, looking up on youtube or searching names. You'll be disqualified for that.

If you win you get the <THE SATISFACTION OF WINNING>.
Remember, these guessing games are not just about getting points, but also listening and finding new videogame music. Enjoy yourself and don't get salty!

all right, guess i won't be able to do this since i'm never going to watch SoPa &amp; Caramoan..


I have some welcome company on Exile Island.

*looks at Thailand, Vanuatu, Worlds Apart, Kaoh Rong, Millenials vs. Gen-X, and I think HHH because I don't recognize a single name on that cast list even though I could've sworn I watched the fall season o_O*

I think it's ridiculous that they're already showing trailers for DLC characters who were clearly not added to the game specifically so they could be sold as DLC. Greedy ass company.

He was listed as both names on the nomination form so there wasn't really any way to know which would be used, and one name is specifically not even in the game, so it's a fair change. If you happened to meta your way out of a point based on the incorrect name, that seems like a big case of "Oh well."

It's been #1 on my Steam wishlist for a few years now.


It's full release (aside from a few minor things postponed due to medical) now so definitely go for it. I rmemeber playing alpha last year sometime and loved it, but got through all available content.

Anyway, I watched the trailer for The Last of Us Part II, but it didn't really tell me much of anything. I already knew the game would be aesthetically pleasing because that's what Naughty Dog does. I'm more interested in what the game is about, and that trailer didn't touch on that.

I also watched the Death Stranding trailer. I have no idea what I just watched, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Just double-checking. You're ranking based on how they are as themes for battle and not just as how good the songs may or may not be? Listened to a few of them that sound like great songs but not great battle themes.

Bernard from LOST


I'm not sure I ever made that connection before.


GavJin-Soo ParKwon &amp; Bernard! As soon as they met each other, I was hoping we would soon get regular characters on LOST played by Christian Kane and Stephanie Romanov.

In my game featuring songs from games that I played in 2018, what began as a close game turned out to be a JONA rout.

JONA - 25.00
Dire - 10.75
dowolf - 4.25
Place - 2.75
deo - 1.5

<3

Have the base for the new Sprite class all worked out, should allow me to go a bit crazier on this next title without having to worry about creating too much garbage and slowing things down.
