  1. Alright yeah I give up, I'll just go back to using my patented ZeldaFreak tactic of letting someone else come up with a method of decrypting the code and trying to figure it out using that method
  2. These were the codes I tried: Encoded code in reverse X HBE7C-KBT6L-E82EB X Above code in reverse X CWZ7X-FWO6I-Z82ZW X JDG7E-MDV6P-G82GD X Figured I'd at least help people narrow it down if anyone arrives at the same codes as me.
  3. Tried a couple modified codes on my end as well using zeppelin's tactic and no dice. I know I said I'll have to sit this one out, but I'm still gonna at least try. Maybe I'll help narrow it down for the actually intelligent people trying to crack it, if nothing else
  4. Sounds fun, but I don't know the first thing about how in god's name encoding works, so I think I'm forced to sit this one out, much as I'd love to play this game
  5. Those are all good ideas, but I really like the Heroic and Evil ones in particular a lot. That's a really good idea
  6. I think Startling/Scary could be another category on it's own. It's similar to Unsettling, but I think it's different enough to warrant it's own category, since there's definitely a fine line between creepy, unsettling music and in your face, shit your pants terrifying music. I also still think Holiday music would be good, although since the next challenge is gonna be in the fall around Halloween, it's up to you on whether or not you want to make it a different category, or just lump it in with the creepy or scary days. Cave/Underground music might be another good category. Forest/Jungle/Swamp music is another potential idea. Sky/Airborne music is another idea. Epic/Grand music could work too. Farming Game music could work as well Recent music could work too. It's kind of hard to explain, but my idea with this would essentially be the opposite of a nostalgic day. Meaning, on this day, you'd select a track that you've discovered very recently that you've taken a liking to, rather than something you've been listening to for a long time like the Nostalgic day. Triumphant music, Defeating music (A track that makes you feel like you failed at your one damn job,) Chaotic music, Happy music, Final Level music... Damn, I thought it'd be harder to come up with so many ideas. Keep in mind I'm just spitballing here, so you don't have to implement all of these ideas, but I think a few of them have potential.
  7. Yup, I agree with bringing back those initial six categories. When it comes to those other 4, I think the cover/remixed day should definitely be brought over, but the other 3 I could take or leave, I don't have a strong opinion on them one way or the other. I feel like there shouldn't be too many returning categories, I think the majority of each challenge should be new, just to keep things interesting. The Licensed day in particular I don't really think should be brought back, I don't think it's that interesting/wide enough of a category to warrant bringing it back, but that's just my opinion. Calming and Indie I'd be fine with bringing back, I just think it'd be more fun to have more new days. I do like all of the new categories we've come up with so far, I'll try to think of some more potential ideas later today. I also don't think the rules on the new difficulties are too lenient either. I'd be fine with allowing some games to be re-used, since you can't use the same track regardless. I wouldn't want to limit our options by not allowing us to repeat games in succeeding challenges, we'd run the well dry pretty quick if we did that for all difficulties and not just Lunatic.
  8. I'm glad people seem to like Bloodlines. I feel like that track isn't as well known as stuff like Vampire Killer, Bloody Tears, Beginning etc, but I feel that it deserves to be up there with all those other classic CV songs. It's really good.
  9. It is technically a rhythm game, but it has a lot of Zelda-y components in it, so I still really enjoyed playing it. It's not just a rhythm game, there's a lot more going on in the gameplay department, which is why I liked it. You can look up gameplay of it if you haven't seen any. It really did just kind of feel like a Zelda game mixed with a rhythm game, it worked very well. I'd definitely recommend checking it out even if you aren't usually a fan of rhythm games, as the rhythm aspect is very simple to get ahold of since it isn't the sole focus of the gameplay. I got pretty good at it by the end and I usually suck at rhythm games.
  10. Cadence of Hyrule is a really good one, I beat that game some time ago. I don't... think it has a physical release? If I'm not mistaken anyway, and I'm pretty sure it's a Switch exclusive.
  11. Man this thread got sidetracked pretty damn quick, huh?
  12. There we go, finally got my list done this time, sans the accidental Enter key press
  13. OK, I think I'm FINALLY done with this after a few hours of going through everyone's lists... glad I finally got the chance to look back at all those songs. Took me forever to put this together, and I had a really tough time picking between 2 or 3 different songs on some days, but I got there in the end. Thanks again to @AverageOliver98 for putting this all together, this has been incredibly fun, and I look forward to the future VGM Challenges Anyway, with that said Day 31 List: My personal favorites from other people's lists ------------------------------------------------------------ Day 1: (Title Screen) | (fox) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Title Theme Of course. Day 2: (Opening Level) | (Sumez) Ibara - Show Time I've never heard of this game before, but got damn this track is really good. Day 3: (8-bit) | (Aguy) DuckTales - Moon Theme I used the remastered version in my list, not the original, so technically this is allowed. Day 4: (Console Exclusive) | (AstralSoul64) LittleBigPlanet - Volver A Comenzar This day in particular was excruciating, everyone's picks for this day were great, but I mean... c'mon, it's a LBP song, one of the games I'm most nostalgic for. I just couldn't resist. Day 5: (Overworld) | (0xDEAFC0DE) The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Switch) - Overworld How could I not? Day 6: (Relaxed) | (fox) Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest - Stickerbrush Symphony This day was a pretty easy pick for me. Day 7: (Indie) | (ookii_risu) Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - Gears of Fortune Another pretty easy pick for me. The soundtrack to Ritual of the Night is an absolute masterpiece. Day 8: (Shooter) | (Aguy) Metroid - Prologue I'd hesitate to classify Metroid as a "shooter," but hey, if it counts, then this'll be my pick. Day 9: (Licensed) | (Sumez) Wild West C.O.W.-Boys of Moo Mesa - Stage 7 I would've picked fox's pick of Moon Lullaby, however I'm pretty sure that just straight up doesn't count as that lullaby isn't even originally from a video game, so I'll go with this instead. Never heard most of Michiru Yamane's older stuff, so this is pretty cool to hear. Day 10: (RPG Battle) | (Aguy) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - Dragon Battle I very nearly picked 0xDEAFC0DE's pick of Rude Buster from Deltarune, however there aren't many soundtracks in existence that can top the soundtrack to an Elder Scrolls game. Day 11: (Puzzle Game) | (Aguy) Lumines: Puzzle Fusion - SHININ' Never heard of this game before either, but this song is just such a good time to listen to. Day 12: (Sad) | (fox) The Last of Us - Vanishing Grace I tried to pick the song that made me the saddest out of the options for this day, having not played most of these games, and I think this one did it. Really somber. Kind of reminds me of a Stardew Valley track, strangely. Day 13: (Game I Dislike) | (AstralSoul64) Castlevania II: Simon's Quest - Bloody Tears Absolutely classic CV track despite the reputation this game has. Sumez's pick of the X vs Zero theme was a VERY close second though. That track is amazing too. Day 14: (Vocals) | (Sumez) Ico - You Were There Yet another game I've never played, but this song is absolutely beautiful. Really makes me want to play it. Day 15: (Boss Battle) | (rdrunner) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Arcade - Boss Battle Not much to say about this one, just a really kick-ass boss theme. Day 16: (16-bit) | (AverageOliver98) Mega Man X2 - Crystal Snail Can't go wrong with the Mega Man X games, they always seem to have fantastic soundtracks. Day 17: (Never Tired Of) | (Sumez) Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze - Scorch 'n' Torch It was a really, really tough decision deciding between this and Kass' Theme, but god damn this song is just so amazing, I had to pick it. Day 18: (Game Over) | (Aguy) Total Distortion - You Are Dead OK listen, I really wanted to pick Determination from Undertale, as that's probably my favorite game over theme of all time... but I mean, come the fuck on, how in god's name could I not pick this one?! This is the obvious winner of this day, and I'm gonna be very upset if this song isn't every single person's choice. Anyone who doesn't pick this for their favorite of this day is WRONG! Day 19: (Cover) | (AverageOliver98) Hyper Duel - Cosmo Babylon Rearrange | (Original by Hyakutaro Tsukumo) Never heard of this game nor the rearranger before, but god damn this song goes hard. Day 20: (Racing) | (AverageOliver98) Mario Kart 8 - Big Blue Another easy pick for me. This one was in the running as one of my potential picks for this day. One of the best songs in an already amazing soundtrack. Day 21: (Frustration) | (rdrunner) Mario Kart: Double Dash!! - Baby Park Similar to the sad day, I tried to pick a song that made me the most frustrated just listening to the song itself, and this one is definitely it. I don't mind Baby Park as a track, but this song definitely drives me up the wall. Day 22: (Village) | (AverageOliver98) The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Rito Village (Day) Considering the fact that this was going to be my original pick for this day before Oliver used it, I pretty much have to pick this one. Absolutely amazing track, and the nostalgia I got when that hint of Dragon Roost Island started to play is just... indescribable. City of Commerce from NieR is also very good. Day 23: (Underrated) | (AstralSoul64) Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest - Jib Jig This one's a fantastic pick. I barely ever hear anyone talk about this song, even though it accompanies the opening level to one of the best SNES games of all time. VERY underrated track for sure. Day 24: (Stuck In Head) | (AstralSoul64) Super Mario 3D World - Switch Scramble Circus I get songs from the more recent Mario games stuck in my head constantly despite the fact I've never played most of them, so this one's definitely a good pick for me. Day 25: (Pumped) | (rdrunner) DuckTales Remastered - Mount Vesuvius Another absolute banger from the DuckTales Remastered OST. Never heard this track before, but I'm very glad I have now, because I absolutely love it. These are the kind of tracks I live for. Orchestra Piece #1 from Twilight Princess is a close second, though. Day 26: (Haven't Played) | (rdrunner) Final Fight 3 - For Metro City I have also never played this game before, but I really like this track. Has that classic heavy SNES sound to it, where you can tell it's trying so hard to emulate the Genesis' sound Day 27: (Handheld) | (Sumez) Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin - The Gears Go Awry Yet another fairly easy day for me. One of the best songs in one of my personal favorite CV soundtracks. Day 28: (Nostalgic) | (nesmaster14) Sonic 3 & Knuckles - Endless Mine 'Eeeeeey, nesmaster finally got a spot on my list! You got there eventually, bud I wouldn't say this track in particular is one I'm nostalgic for, but Sonic 3 in general is a game I'm very nostalgic for, so this one definitely gets my pick for this day. Day 29: (Final Boss) | (Sumez) Dark Souls - Gwyn, Lord of Cinder Normally I'm in to epic, sweeping, orchestral-sounding final boss themes... but I don't know. Despite having never played a Soulsborne game, there's just something about this final boss theme I really like. I just love the juxtaposition of this song compared to typical final boss themes from other games. It almost sounds tragic. Plus it is just a beautiful song in general. Day 30: (Credits) | (Sumez) The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - Staff Roll And Sumez manages to sweep the last two days of my list. This is one of the ending themes I'm most nostalgic for, I beat this game so many times when I was a kid, and I always loved that moment of respite you got during the credits, to just sit back and relax for a bit. Probably one of the most iconic ending themes that I can think of. Plus, once again, ending the list with the same franchise that started it Not to mention the fact that there is something oddly somber about this track, which I think tonally fits with the previous day's song.
