    M4GICFOUR's February Freebies givaway - Now with samples from nes/snes/sms/smd/psx

    Contest Closed. All prizes claimed.
    Thanks for playing!

    I've been meaning to do a giveaway for a while now. Originally I was going to give a couple games away as a surprise with Qubit's modern warefare 3 givaway, but he never got back to me on who to send them to. So, there have been a few good sales on Steam, and I've built up a decent library of gift passes. Time to get rid of them. We're going to play name that game.

    Giveaway is open to everybody with a forum account at TPU including staff, mods, etc.

    UPDATED (again)
    Since several people have complained that these samples are before their time for PC, I've put up 11 new tracks from nes/snes/sms/smd/psx. Don't say I never gave you anything :D

    I have wicked slow upload speed, so it will likely take some time for the new tracks to show up.
    All tracks uploaded. Total of 36 prizes to be won

    How to play:
    Follow the link provided below (under the rules), and listen to the sound clips. When you recognize one which hasn't been claimed, put a post in this thread with the clip number, the name of the game it came from, and a short story of your favorite memory of the game (Doesn't need to be anything special). If you just recogised the game because you've heard the music before, you can just say that. Or, you can make up an entertainingly elaborate lie. Whatever floats your boat.

    If you win a prize, I will PM you ask what prize you want and to either: Get your Steam e-mail address so I can send you the gift pass, or I'll send you the GOG.com gift code, and a link to the gift redeem page.

    The sound clips are all most from older PC games, from DOS era to early-mid Windows (95/98/ME era). Last 11 (26-36) are from nes/snes/n64/sms/smd/ps1. Due to the nature of PC sound hardware in the DOS era, these clips may not sound exactly as you remember them. Don't be afraid to guess, but remember rule #2. A total of 25 36 prizes will be won.


    Rules: (RTFMFM)
    1. You can only win ONCE (If people stop posting and I've still got prizes left I'll open it up to previous winners)
    2. You may only guess/identify at ONE (1) clip at a time, ONE (1) entry per day. Give everybody a chance. an attempt to steal is not considered an entry unless it is successful.

    We're going into PHASE 2.

    The rules will change in two important ways:
    1) Each person may now win up to a total of three(3) prizes each. If you've already won once, now you've got a chance to win twice more.

    2) You may enter twice per day.


    ENDGAME MODE

    Rules:
    1) The amount of prizes each person may win is unlimited
    2) You may enter three times per day.


    3. First person to correctly identify each clip wins a prize. Once a clip has been identified, it is no longer valid to win a prize (see prizes below)
    4. If you don't include the story - (see how to play) - your entry is forfeit. (even if you correctly identified the clip, allowing the next guy to steal your prize.)
    5. Prizes are first come first served. If you already own all the prizes I have left, I can probably work something out.
    6. Don't comment on the SoundCloud clips, as that could give it away.
    7. Forum user TheJesus cannot win on clip 25.

    Contest Closed.

    Dammit! I should know these but they're really, really old. My brain only has enough capacity for the newer stuff. XD

    I know none of the Sim titles are in there. XD


    Ha!

    Nope. You wouldn't have won even if it was (see Rule 4). You've got to post a memory (or a bullshit story) involving the game. Just FYI


    Got to have some challenge, eh? Some of them are REALLY obscure. Most are fairly common in the old shareware discs so it shouldn't be impossible.

    Nope, no sims games(Hint #1 Used, lol)

    Fair enough.

    Number 18 is cannon fodder.
    I remember one time I was playing with my brother and the sun was out. I then proceeded to shot him with my gun. It was so much fun.

    Are they all before the mid 90s? I think I recognized another one from that top down plane shooter genre but my memory fails me.

    Nope, sorry.

    Just to clarify, none of the samples are from games in the *steam* prizes. (Hint Hint)

    Sure you will. Steam usually has at least two big sales per year, and Portal 2 is getting old enough that they'll cut the price pretty significantly.

    Then again, if nobody claims it, you can try again tomorrow.

    Yup. Look through the OP, pick a prize, and PM me. If the prize you want is a steam game, I'll need your email address as well.

    Sample #20 I've heard this before. I think it's a sample from an intro of one of the 16bit bat-man games but forget which one.
