[checks watch] Well, I make that quiz time!

I've borrowed a few round ideas from previous quizzes, so these rounds are a bit scattershot, but I hope you'll enjoy them nevertheless.

There are twenty points available, all told. I'll post results second half of Monday.

***

OBSCURE SCREENCAP ROUND
For your consideration, four of the most unidentifiable screencaps I could find in my extensive collection, all captured on my PS4. Which games do they come from?

1) First Screencap:
Untitled

2) Second Screencap:
Untitled

3) Third Screencap:
Untitled

4) Fourth Screencap:
Untitled

***

THE TAGLINE ROUND
Six pithy marketing phrases taken from trailers, print ads and the backs of boxes; let's see if they worked. Tell me which game (or series of games) they refer to, please!

5) A Survivor Is Born
6) Evil Is Powerful, But Courage Is Solid
7) Half Otter. Half Weasel. All Hero!
8) Take New York For A Spin
9) War Is Your Business
10) You Don't Play, You Volunteer

***

OBSCURE GUEST STAR ROUND
So obscure, I've made these multiple choice; four questions about cameos, guest stars and other crossovers from various videogames. Have at them!

11) Which of the following characters from Tekken 6 also appeared as a bonus playable fighter in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, wearing an outfit designed by Masashi Kishimoto?
a) Lars Alexandersson
b) Alisa Bosconovitch
c) Miguel Caballero Rojo

12) Joker (the one from Persona 5, not the one from Gotham City) has stopped by many games for a cameo, but which of the following only saw his outfit make an appearance?
a) Catherine: Full Body
b) Phantasy Star Online 2
c) Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
d) Star Ocean: Anamnesis

13) In LEGO Marvel Superheroes, once you've rescued Stan Lee from all fifty of his perilous situations, his unlocked playable minifig (rightly) comes equipped with some superpowers. Which ones?
a) Wolverine's sense of smell and a big, green "Stan Hulk" mode.
b) Spider-Man's web-swinging and the laser eyes of Cyclops.
c) Mister Fantastic's flexibility and the magnetism of Magneto.
d) All of the above, plus telekinesis and mind control.

14) Out of the following four options, can you identify who has not (yet) been a playable character in Ubisoft's free-to-play fighting game Brawlhalla?
a) Lara Croft
b) Rayman
c) Ezio Auditore da Firenze
d) Shovel Knight

***

THE MUSIC ROUND
As always, tell me from where these four tracks originated (hint: one of them technically isn't from a game, but is nevertheless very, very strongly related to gaming).

15) Track 1:
16) Track 2:
17) Track 3:
18) Track 4:

***

OBSCURE BONUS QUESTION
Because it simply wouldn't fit anywhere else, but I still really wanted to ask it. Give me the right answer here, and I'll give you two points. Best of luck!

19) In the English dub of Kingdom Hearts II, who voices the talking teapot, Mrs. Potts?

"Always try to be nice, but never fail to be kind."

Screenshot Round

Question 1. Is it Drive Club?

Question 2. Not quite sure at all there to be honest. The Unfinished Swan?

Question 3. I have no idea here either. I guess I'll go with Metal Gear Solid V

Question 4. I actually recognise this... But I don't know the name at all. Castaway?

Tagline Round

Question 5. ... Nope I have nothing for that one.

Question 6. Metal Gear Solid... Surely?

Question 7. That's for the Jak & Daxter spinoff Daxter presumably

Question 8. Spider-Man?

Question 9. ... Mercenaries?

Question 10. I'll... go with Medal Of Honour?

Guest Star Round

Question 11. A

Question 12. B?

Question 13. C?

Question 14. D?

Music Round

Question 15. No Man's Sky because why not?

Question 16. Sonic Forces?

Question 17. No clue about the gaming relation if I'm being honest.

Question 18. No idea for that either. I'm gonna hedge my bets and say No man's sky again because for some reason that's all I can think of. And I'm not sure why. I've never even see footage of it

Question That Couldn't Fit Anywhere Else Round

Question 19. ... Angela Lansbury? Or is it a trick question? I can't remember if it is! It's been too long! 😅


Good Quiz there @RogerRoger with some tricky questions that's for sure!

"Well that was fun. Horrible, but fun!" Fargus The Jester - Pandemonium (After a summoning a monster that destroyed his home town)

"Words don't make changes. Wounds do." Agent Black - Iconoclasts

Gremio108

@RogerRoger Did somebody say quiz time?

1. That's Burnout Paradise I reckon
2. This is like the good old days of holiday snaps, when you get to the end of the reel and there are some really random photos that someone took just to use up the film. No idea. Death Stranding?
3. Armoured Core IX: A Hike to Remember
4. Hmm, feel like I should know it. Can't even formulate a guess. I'm intrigued by that glowing thing in the background though

5. Hopefully this is the Rocky game we got on PS2, because that would be an excellent tagline for it
6. Too obvious to say Metal Gear Solid, surely? Pretty poor effort if so. They should have used "You've had liquid, you've had gas, now try... Solid"
7. It's one of the Jak and Daxter games, but I don't know which one. Let's go Jak 2
8. Spiderman, must be
9. Civilization?
10. I remember the tagline, unsure of the game. Medal of Honour Frontline?

11. Guess time! B
12. A
13. D, let's do the big man justice
14. A, because I like to think I would have heard about that

15. This is the music that plays when I have to think really hard, such as when the cashier at the petrol station asks me which pump I used
16. This is the song I sing to my children at bedtime
17. Every winter, usually on Christmas Eve, I shovel snow from my elderly neighbour's drive, dressed as a topless santa. I demand no fee, my only request is that she plays this music at full volume so that the entire street comes out to watch
18. This is my celebratory music for when I have solved a particularly tricky sudoku puzzle. My family must stand to attention while my youngest son brings me my ceremonial quill on a velvet cushion so I can write in the final number. If the quill is not preened to my satisfaction then we must begin the process again

19. Is this it? Is this the Angela Lansbury moment?? I might cry if it isn't. I might even cry if it is. Don't toy with my emotions like this

Brilliant quiz, as ever

Edited on by Gremio108

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

crimsontadpoles

This might be a tricky quiz for me, but I'll guess with all my heart.

1) GTA V. Probably not this since I don't recognise the car, but the scenery looks right.
2) Hitman 2. Some obscure room I missed?
3) Fallout 4 Again, complete guess
4) Uncharted: Lost Legacy. It's very Uncharted-like scenery, but again another guess.

5) Horizon: Zero Dawn
6) The Legend of Zelda
7) Daxter (Jak series) Glad I pay attention to these quizzes, I think Daxter being an Ottsel was a question the other week. He did get a standalone Vita game called Daxter, so it must be that surely.
8) Marvel's Spider-Man
9) God of War
10) Call of Duty

11) b) Alisa Bosconovitch
12) d) Star Ocean: Anamnesis. He's in Smash. Surely he must be a playable DLC character in Catherine too, so that just leaves a 50/50 guess between the other two.
13) d) All of the above, plus telekinesis and mind control. I want this to be true so bad, but I'm worried that the answer might be a).
14) d) Shovel Knight. He has cameos in a lot of smaller games, so I'm hoping that you were being evil RogerRoger and put him there as a red herring

15) Track 1: Sonic Forces. No actual idea, but those first few notes are killing me. They sound very familiar.
16) Track 2: Devil May Cry V. I really like this song, but not something I recognise.
17) Track 3: Kingdom Hearts 3. It's an old Christmas jingle I think, but I have no idea which game features it
18) Track 4: Final Fantasy VII? As fun as music rounds are, I don't do well in them.

19) Angela Lansbury

nessisonett

This looks pretty difficult!

1. Gran Turismo Sport, perhaps?
2. No clue, Detroit is blue so I'll say that.
3. Maybe The Surge?
4. Shadow of the Tomb Raider but I'm not sure.
5. Tomb Raider 2013
6. Metal Gear Solid.... something?
7. Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
8. I'll say Spider-Man
9. Nope. Maybe Killzone or something.
10. CoD World at War?
11. Got to be Alisa, she's the most popular there.
12. B, Phantasy Star Online 2.
13. D, I remember him being proper OP.
14. Lara doesn't sound like an obvious fit to me.
15. Oh dear, drawing a blank. The Outer Worlds?
16. Sounds like Devil May Cry music so I'll say DmC V.
17. ...Carol of the Bells? I have no clue what game that's in!
18. This is not my round. I'll randomly say Infamous.
19. The myth, the legend, Queen of Cabot Cove, Angela Lansbury. Gremio will be chuffed!

Definitely a fun one but for someone who listens to a lot of music and soundtracks, I'm utter pants at those music rounds.

Socks before or after trousers, but never socks before pants, that's the rule. Makes a man look scary, like a chicken.

Black Lives Matter. Enough is enough.

ralphdibny

My gosh I have no idea what the answers are,I will do the quiz but it will be mostly guesses or jokey answers so here goes....

1. Something James bondy? No idea, I'll say days gone
2. Dreams?
3. Firewatch?
4.uncharted 4?
5. Resident Evil survivor (actually I think this might be tomb raider)
6. Resident evil 2+3
7. Resident Weasel
8. Drive club unlimited?
9.far cry 5?
10. Call of duty something
11.B
12.B
13.D
14.D
15. No idea, jedi fallen order maybe?
16. Deffo heard this one recently, is it metal gear rising revengeance?!
17. Is this like batman returns or something?! Sounds very Danny elfmany
18. no eyed deer, gonna guess at horizon zero dawn as I've never played it
19.dont know, Emma Thompson?

Oh well! Might've got one point!

ralphdibny

ralphdibny

just looking at other people's answers now, for some reason I was thinking the taglines were all PS4 games 🤦‍♂️but I feel like I knew that solid one would be MGS but couldn't place it on a PS4 game, oh well, I'll stick to my original answers!

Huge thanks to everybody who's taken part thusfar! Sorry to see it's turned out to be quite a challenging quiz; that really wasn't my intention. Some of you have done better than you think!

Giving a friendly, no-pressure tag to previous participants @Kidfried @LieutenantFatman @mookysam @Ralizah @Th3solution @themcnoisy and @Thrillho (apologies if I've missed anybody, my coffee hasn't kicked in yet). The quiz is open until tomorrow afternoon, so give it a shot if you fancy doing so!

OBSCURE SCREENCAP ROUND
1)
Driveclub

3)
Fallout 76

4)
I remember this game came out a few years ago on PS4, exploring a world that's flooded, traversing by boat, I recall it was poorly reviewed, but the name escapes me completely.

Lars Alexandersson

***

THE MUSIC ROUND

15) Track 1: The Outer Worlds?
16) Track 2: Sounds like a Miracle of Sound track
17) Track 3: An exciting remix of Carol of the Bells, the only game I can think of that might use such a soundtrack would be Kingdom Hearts, as it has a Nightmare Before Christmas as one of the worlds.
18) Track 4: Wonderful, I feel I should know this one, but I'm unable to place it. Feels like the end credits to something. Tomb Raider?

***

OBSCURE BONUS QUESTION

19) In the English dub of Kingdom Hearts II, who voices the talking teapot, Mrs. Potts?

[/quote] No idea, the orginal voice actress from Beauty & the Beast? I seem to recall this being mentioned in a previous conversation so will be interested to see who it is.

Great quiz! A tough one but I think I put in some decent guesses. Loving the music round as always even though I'm not sure where any of them are from.

Okay, I'll fulfill my role of saving anyone else the shame of coming last.


1. I don't recall the place on the sign but the car it looks GTA-like so will go with - GTA V
2. It looks like it's behind glass so maybe a museum scene and there is a hint of hud in the bottom left but even so I'm at a loss.
3. It looks a bit Fallout 76ish. Don't recall you ever mentioning the game but you might have played it so will guess that.
4. Not a clue
5. I'm pretty sure that's the Tomb Raider reboot.
6. Very odd wording! Metal Gear Solid?
7. blind guess Sly Cooper?
8. For a spin says driving to me, Midnight Club?
9. Civilisation?
10. Call of Duty?
11. no idea, 25% chance (a)
12. I think (a) is also an Atlus game so will pick that
13. I platinumed that game but can't remember the exact answer, seeing as it's the legend Stan Lee I hope it was (d)
14. b & c are Ubisoft so would imagine it's a or d. I'll pick (a)
15. Sounds a little Marvel-like at the end maybe Spider-Man?
16. Pass
17. Think this the non game one (isn't it a Christmas tune?), I have nothing
18. Very theatrical and grandiose but can't even guess.
19. Not the foggiest, the Queen.

Glad to see people are struggling. It gives me less of an inferiority complex. 😉


1. looks like a Bond car. Maybe Quantum of Solace? Is that a game?
2. It’s beautiful, but ... not sure here either. I’ll venture Frozen Wilds in HZD. Pretty sure that’s wrong
3. It remind me of Firewatch... but no — I haven’t a clue
4. I’m going to feel stupid here — Lost Legacy?
5. I believe that’s Tomb Raider, the reboot specifically.
6. Hmmm... don’t think I’ve heard that one. What does that even mean, by the way? 😂
7. Wasn’t Daxster an Otter/Weasel mix? I’ll go with Jak and Daxster
8. GTA?
9. Some sort of mercenary game, clearly. Killzone?
10. Uh, Call of Duty? No idea.
11. I’ll go with C) Mr Rojo. Pure guess
12. I know he actually showed up in the Smash. I’d guess Catherine doesn’t have outfit changing, so I’ll go with — B) Phantasy Star online 2
13. D) All of the above sounds about right.
14. A) Lara Croft. Wouldn’t think they would sully her reputation in such a way 😜
15. Ratchet & Clank?
16. What a curious tune... Uh, Brutal Legend?
17. Isn’t that some kind of Christmas carol? Let’s guess... The Division
18. Epic sounding. Maybe something Legend of Zelda related?
19. Angela Lansbury!?!?!?! Could it be true?!

It was difficult, but I think I got a couple points, maybe.
But shout out to @RogerRoger for the excellent quiz. I’m always so impressed especially with the videos that are put together so perfectly with the music so as to look professional.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

@RogerRoger


1) Project Cars
2) A Hitman game
3) Uh... Days Gone?
4) I'm going to guess a James Bond game. It looks adventure film-y, but not good enough to be from something like Uncharted.
5) Sounds like Tomb Raider 2013.
6) A Metal Gear Solid game of some sort. Couldn't guess which one.
7) No idea. I'm picturing a PS2 game with some sort of ferret looking thing, but I can't think of the name.
8) Driv3r?
9) A Call of Duty game?
10) Medal of Honor?
11) Going with the first option, Lars Alexandersson. It's undoubtedly wrong, but, given my complete lack of knowledge, why complicate matters?
12) I know Joker is playable in Smash and Catherine FB from experience, so it's a 50/50 shot here. Phantasy Star Online 2.
13) Wolverine's sense of smell and a big, green "Stan Hulk" mode. Again, no idea, so just going with the first option.
14) Ezio
15) A Star Wars game?
16) OK, this has to be Sonic related. Sonic Forces.
17) No idea. I know the song it's originally based on, but I don't recall in being in a game. Going based off what I know about you... a Hitman game? Hitman 2? It makes no sense, but I'm going for it.
18) Sounds Disney-esque. Kingdom Hearts 3?
19) Angela Lansbury, I'd guess. Anyone else would be criminal.

Challenging quiz. Some very unique questions, though.

ACTIVELY PLAYING
N/A

PSN: Ralizah

mookysam

1. Burnout Paradise
2. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. At least I hope that’s a waypoint icon from it!
3. Absolutely no idea. That robot looks like the love child of something from Metal Gear and Horizon Zero Dawn.
4. Submerged
5. Tomb Raider
6. Metal Gear Solid
7. Daxter. There was an Ottsel related question in my quiz a few weeks ago.
8. A racing game? Need for Speed
9. Metal Gear Solid
10. What a woeful marketing slogan. Maybe Call of Duty at some military recruitment stand in an American shopping centre.
11. B
12. A
13. B
14. C
15. Star Wars
16. Only Sonic can be this peppy
17. Arkham Origins is set at Christmas so I’ll say that.
18. Teletubbies go to Mass
19. Angela Lansbury

RogerRoger

...and that's time, folks. Put down your pens, papers, iPads, carrier pigeons and rugs you're using to waft smoke signals; that's the end of the quiz!

Before we get to the scores, here are the answers.

***

OBSCURE SCREENCAP ROUND
1) The first screencap is from Burnout Paradise Remastered.
2) The second screencap is from Mirror's Edge: Catalyst.
3) The third screencap is from Just Cause 3 (specifically, its "Mech Land Assault" DLC).
4) The fourth screencap is from Submerged.

THE TAGLINE ROUND
5) A Survivor Is Born = Tomb Raider (2013)
6) Evil Is Powerful, But Courage Is Solid = Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots
7) Half Otter. Half Weasel. All Hero! = Daxter
8) Take New York For A Spin = Spider-Man 2
9) War Is Your Business = Killzone Mercenary
10) You Don't Play, You Volunteer = Medal of Honor (various)

OBSCURE GUEST STAR ROUND
11) Appearing in Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 was a) Lars Alexandersson.
12) Joker only sends his outfit along to b) Phantasy Star Online 2, and appears in the rest.
13) They gave LEGO Stan all the powers he's ever created, so it's d) all of the above!
14) Ubisoft have yet to shoehorn their own c) Ezio Auditore da Firenze into Brawlhalla.

THE MUSIC ROUND
15) Track 1 is why I included the hint; it's called "Meet Sonic (Before We Start I Gotta Tell You This)" and is from the recent live-action Sonic the Hedgehog movie. It features the classic Sonic theme tune, as well as the famous "Say-gah!" chant, and was adapted by Tom Holkenborg.
16) Track 2 is entitled "Collective Consciousness" and plays during Raiden's boss fight with Metal Gear EXCELSUS in the penultimate stage of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. It was composed by Logan Mader and Jamie Christopherson, with lyrics by Jimmy Gnecco.
17) Track 3 is called "Can't You Just Play Along?" and does indeed feature a sample of the famous Christmas tune "Carol of the Bells", which serves as the Joker's theme throughout Batman: Arkham Origins. It was adapted by Christopher Drake.
18) Track 4 is music from the finale of The Last Guardian (I won't name the specific track, as its title could be a spoiler for those who've yet to play the game). It was composed by Takeshi Furukawa.

OBSCURE BONUS QUESTION
Who else could it be, but the legendary Angela Lansbury? You've finally made it, Angie!

***

As always, my huge thanks to everybody who gave this quiz a shot!

I didn't expect it to be so challenging, and apologise if anybody found it prohibitively so; as a result, I've been very generous with the scores, awarding half-points for general answers (like getting the right franchise for the taglines, even if they come from specific games) and to those who accurately described a game they couldn't ultimately name. Also, saying that Mrs. Potts was voiced by "the original voice actress" from Beauty & the Beast is technically correct, so that answer was awarded one of the two points available.

Numbers have never been my strong suit, so please feel free to double-check my working against the answers above, but I make the final scores as follows.

@WanderingBullet is number one with a bullet, scoring 12/20!
@mookysam comes a respectable second with 10/20!
@nessisonett grabs bronze with 9/20!

@LieutenantFatman and @Ralizah both score 8 and a half points!
@Foxy-Goddess-Scotchy and @Gremio108 both score 8 points!
@Th3solution scores 7 points!
@Arugula scores 6 and a half points!
@crimsontadpoles scores 6 points!
@ralphdibny scores 5 points!
@BearsEatBeets scores 4 points!

Congratulations to everybody (you all knew something, at least!) and thanks again. Does our new champion feel like crafting the next quiz, perchance?
