Video Game Mind Teasers Vol. 19: It's So Bad...

   0


This week's theme is bad games. Games that are both famous and infamous for their...baddery.

PUZZLE #1: Reversed Music



I'm not going to give any hints for these, since they're generally easier. With bad games, they're either well-known or far too obscure; I balanced things towards the former.

PUZZLE #2: Gamebusters

I think you know the score by now: cryptic/confusing phrases that have a double meaning from a video game. For example: "The black bird won't shoot his gun." = Crow no trigger = Chrono Trigger

#1) A cloth belt is used in avarice as well. (Game, starting with A)
#2) These Metroid Prime 2 creatures teamed with Megaman's creator (Character, starting with L)
#3) The Bundy patriarch takes a tumble, and he phones a professional. (Game, starting with A)
#4) What's the common link between those three clues? (Hint: It has to do with Destructoid)

Overall rules for this week's puzzles:
1. Since this is the last week for this season, you can answer as many as you want! That way, there's a chance that someone can make a comeback.
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.

Good Luck!

P.S. Seeing as next week will be the 20th edition my VGMT, I'll be giving away some actual prizes again! Stay tuned!

Age: 23
Location: Ottawa, ON, Canada.

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.
