Music Mind Teasers Vol. 16: Mind Teasers PLUS Edition!!!


To spice things up, and to make up for missing last week, there are going to be multiple types of puzzles this week. As well, I'm going to be trying out some new, non-music related types to give those of you who are more analytical or visual-oriented to have a chance.


First off, there's the Multipass puzzle, where 6 different songs are played simultaneously. However, you might notice that I've shifted some of the songs to the right and left channels, so if you have stereo speakers or headphones, things might be a bit easier. As well, 5 of the songs are from well-known NES titles, while one of them is an 8-bit remix of a well-known anime theme.


Now, here's the second type of puzzle for this week. In this image are deformed screenshots from 5 different games, spanning every console generation from the NES to the present. Only a few are obscure, since I'm not sure how difficult it'll be for people.


The final type of puzzle is going to be wordplay. I'm tentatively calling it "Gamebusters", since it's based on the hilarious quiz segment "Rockbusters" that Karl Pilkington did on the Ricky Gervais radio show and podcasts (here's an example). There'll be a cryptic clue, where the phrase refers to a video game title, character, concept or item. For example, if the clue is "This furry animal doesn't like to listen to the Rolling Stones quietly", the answer is: Fox Mick Loud = Fox McCloud. Yeah, they might be confusing like that. Let's see how it turns out.

#1)"The black bird won't shoot his gun." (Game, Starting initial is C)
#2) "That payment belongs to you." (Character, Initial is Y)
#3) "Chomping some uncooked meat." (Enemy, Initial is R)
#4) What's the common link between those three answers?

Overall rules for the puzzles:
1. For the first few days, each person can only give four answers total. After Monday, you can go back and answer as many remaining ones as you want.
2. If someone answers a question, and you think that you have a more precise answer (the specific version of the game, or the specific level where you hear the music), you can try and "steal" that answer, and it won't count towards your four answer limit.
3. Please don't reverse the edits/alterations on the songs/images to try and solve them. That's cheating.

Good Luck!

Profile: I'm a longtime gamer, and started playing video games during the transition from the NES to the SNES. Although I like retro games, I play mostly newer games on the 360. Still, my favourite gaming memories are from all-nighters filled with Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Smash Bros. in the late 90s.

I'm looking for a career in public service, politics or other fields where research and writing are critical. Though, the closer it's related to games, the better.

I make videos, animated gifs, podcasts and all kinds of random stuff in my spare time. I'm also trying to develop my own gaming website (details coming eventually).

Systems: NES, Super NES, Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, Nintendo 64, Wii, Sega Genesis, Playstation 2, Xbox 360, PC, Colecovision (my dad's). Also, many other systems (including arcade) that I not emulate.

Some Favourite Games:
Retro (NES-SNES eta): Megaman 3, Super Mario World, Super Mario All-Stars, Sonic 3, Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Trigger, Robotrek, Illusion of Gaia, Megaman X, Lufia 1 and 2, Strider, Metal Slug, Twilight Zone pinball.

Retro Limbo (N64 era): Ogre Battle 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Mario Kart 64, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Mystical Ninja starring Goemon, Goemon's Great Adventure, Descent: Freespace.

Modern: Halo: Reach, Modern Warfare 2, Mass Effect 2, Bayonetta, Tales of Vesperia, Fallout 3, Bionic Commando Rearmed, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Metroid Prime 1-3, Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam, Hearts of Iron II, Europa Universalis III, Civilization IV.
