Ouch! I really thought people would better at this given some of the arcane knowledge on display last week 😮

Thanks for having a go- you definitely have some points 😋

If I had to describe this quiz in four words, I would probably say 'Harder, better, faster, quizzier'. Let's go!

Round 1. Face to Face.
Question 1. I am not familiar with this game, but I can have a damn good go at naming some characters.
1. Lex Luthor obvs
2. Lois Lane
3. Aquaman
4. Wonder Woman
5. Ben Affleck

Question 2.
1. Blaze
2. Axel
3. Roo
4. Boxer guy, can't remember his name, going to kick myself over this one

Round 2. Technologic.
Question 3.
1. R-Type Delta
2. R-Type Zero
3. R-Type 2000
4. R-Type Jaguar
5. R-Typewriter's broken, please can we borrow yours?

Question 4.
a) Intel b) Frigidaire c) Dyson

Round 3. Interstella
Question 5.
I'm aware of the Colony Wars games without ever having played them. With that in mind I'll say:
1. Ant Colony Wars
2. Colonel Wars II - Colonel Sanders' Revenge
Bonus - would that be Rollcage?

Question 6.
1. Don't know this at all. Let's say 'Da Funk'.

Round 4. Save The Last Humans
Question 7.
Argh, yet another reason to play Resogun. I really should get around to it at some point. Two ships, let's see...
1. The Black Pearl
2. Titanic

Question 8.
1. I've no idea. Some sort of platformer? Isometric French house music-based puzzler?

Round 5. Don't Believe Your Eyes!
Section 1.
Video. Don't know
Music. Don't know. Good start.

Section 2.
Video. Hmm, don't know. One of the Gradius games?
Music. Ah yes, this is from that scene in Uncharted when Sully has a flashback to his acid house days

Section 3.
Video. Don't know but it looks fun! How do I not know what this is?
Music. This music is equally bonkers.

Section 4.
Video. Some sort of Tron game?
Music. Sonic 1. Starlight Zone. When I close my eyes I can see those annoying bombs going off.

Section 5.
Video. Time Crisis,I think...
Music. It sounds like the background music on one of those depressing all-night phone-in gameshow things you find at 2am on ITV.

Daft Punk Bonus
I quite like Daft Punk, so I can smell points here...
1. You slipped a reference in right at the beginning with 'Get Lucky' you cheeky devil. I nearly missed it.
2. 'Face to Face' was one of their songs I think.
3. 'Human After All' was an album
4. 'Technologic' - that's a guess but it sounds like them
5. 'Interstella'? Guessing again.
6. 'Save The Last Humans' - another guess. It reminds me of 'The Humans Are Dead', the Flight of the Conchords' tribute to Daft Punk.
7. 'Post-Zombie-Fungal-Infection' sounds like it could be an obscure B-Side....
It seems I've only got seven, and I'm not massively confident about the last one. Guess I must have missed a few

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

I'll give this quiz a proper shot tomorrow, but from what I'm seeing as I scroll through it quickly, I'm absolutely hopeless!

@KALofKRYPTON Ouch. And I have to admit - I think some of these questions seemed harder than the actually were. Good job, sir!
I had so many good laughs reading the answer attempts this week!

Kidfried

Noooo, I was too late to answer the quiz. Wasn't at home to send it in. But I actually did all the questions at home. I didn't have a lot of points, but I did have all the Daft Punk bonus stuff, though!

Great quiz @KALofKrypton

Kidfried

KALofKRYPTON

@Th3solution My biggest surprise was the amount of people who didn't answer Superman for question 1!

@Kidfried I knew it was a straightforward bonus round!

@KALofKRYPTON Well, that's more points than I would've expected myself to get! I'm glad you made such an arbitrary point system so that it now sounds like I've done better than I actually did. Also totally kicking myself over looking over the Daft Punk bonus explanation MULTIPLE times.... at least I can counter the embarrassment with the fact that it wouldn't have netted me many points anyway! Nice quiz!

By the way, have you nominated someone for next week yet? I don't recall.

Tjuz

KALofKRYPTON

@Tjuz thanks - I've not nominated, is there anyone who fancies a go?

@KALofKRYPTON Wait, I won? With THOSE answers?!

This is getting ridiculous.

A really, really great quiz; thank you again. It's been one of the best examples of why we've got a rotating quizmaster, because it was so unique and so interesting to consider parts of gaming which don't often get to stand in the spotlight. I learned things!

Thanks to @Tjuz for the reminder about nomination; I recommend you tag somebody sooner rather than later if there's no immediate take-up, as it'll give them more lead time.

I did pretty well there. Can't believe I didn't get Adam though!

I haven't done a quiz yet, but it's half term and I've got the kids around, so I'm not getting much free time. If someone can do it this week, I'll do it the week after.

EDIT I'm not just saying that so I can play Red Dead all weekend

I can’t promise much by way of quality, but I’ll be willing to do a quiz. It’s been a while since I did one.
Just don’t expect any video questions. I’m not that savvy.

@KALofKRYPTON I have some ideas already. Plus I figure I can’t come in last place this way. 😉
I also can’t guarantee I’ll get it out until Friday evening here in the States, which I think is Saturday morning in Europe. I’ll try for sooner but we’ll see.

@KALofKRYPTON Lol. It’s going to be hard not to subconsciously target @RogerRoger by having the whole quiz be about zombies.
