Every Friday, I present some video game-related puzzles that involve music, images, or wordplay. This week not only has the winner of the second season of VGMT, but also some mediocre
So, it looked like Blorp and Knutaf would pull ahead and win, but Batthink showed his speed and smarts once again to hold onto his lead, and become the winner of the second season of VGMT!!! After this week, the slate will be cleared, so you'll all have a chance to reach for the top!

2nd: Blorp: 12
3rd: Knutaf: 9

Here's the answers to last week's puzzles
, and who got each one right:
Cheetahmen Theme (Blorp)
Deadly Premonition - Life is Beautiful (Batthink)
Rogue Warrior - Credits (No one)
Gyromite - Game A (No one)
Link: The Faces of Evil - Introduction (Blorp)
"A cloth belt is used in avarice as well." = A sash in greed too = Assassin's Creed II (Batthink)
"These Metroid Prime 2 creatures teamed with Megaman's creator" Light and Ing = Lightning, from FFXIII (knutaf)
"The Bundy patriarch takes a tumble, and he phones a professional." = Al's fall, pro to call = Alpha Protocol (Batthink)
#4) What's in common between these answers?
Games that Jim Sterling gave low review scores. (Batthink)
This week is another instance where I'm giving away actual prizes! Not amazing ones, mind you, but they're a step up from bragging rights. As I did last time I gave things away, this week has even more puzzles to answer! More importantly, though, answers must be done through a Destructoid PM. Next Friday, I'll figure out who had the most right, and give away the following prizes:
Mischief Makers for the N64! (Cartridge only, and I haven't been able to test it. A bit of a risk, but definitely a rewarding game!)
Beat Hazard over Steam (or a similarly-priced game if you already have it).
PUZZLE #1: Music
This video is a sampler of all my music puzzle formats (reversed, cutbacks, and messed up).
PUZZLE #2: Images
Yes, there's two images for this.
Image 1: Rogues' Gallery (Five enemies from games, answering the name of the enemy trumps just knowing the game)
Image 2: ???? (Four scenes from games)
BONUS QUESTION: What's in common in this image?
PUZZLE #3: Gamebusters
Just a reminder: These puzzles are cryptic/confusing phrases that have a double meaning from a video game, based on Karl Pilkington's Rockbusters
. For example: "The black bird won't shoot his gun." = Crow no trigger = Chrono Trigger
The Egyptian god has a French head. (Character, starting with T)
A harsh reaction to a life story. (Game)
Add a Wii avatar to your bike. (Real-life person, starting with M)
Your door is locked, and you forgot the key. What do you do? (Item)
A party member from Chrono Trigger is going on a journey. (Game)
Overall rules for this week's puzzles:
1. Please send your answers privately by a DM. Do not post your answers in the comments!
2. You have until Midnight EST on Friday, August 20 to send your answers.
3. The people with the most correct answers will win the prizes. If there's a tie, whoever sent their answers in first is the winner.
4. You're allowed to send in corrections and new answers, but in the case of a tie your final message will count as your official entry time.
5. First prize (the cartridge) will be available for the US and Canada for sure, and internationally depending on shipping costs.
Good Luck! read
