Forum Games / Re: The NSM Biweekly Guess-That-Melody Quiz!
« on: October 21, 2017, 08:11:54 PM »
Here are the answers to my latest quiz:

#1
"Title"/"Title Screen"/"Title Theme"/"Main Theme", from Super Mario Kart
Timestamp: 0:04

Yeah, this theme has been remixed into every Mario Kart title theme since.

5 out of 5 people got this correct.

#2
"The Rival (Black Knight - First Battle)", from Shovel Knight, used as a boss theme
Timestamp: 0:46

We've collectively covered all the other themes associated with Shovel Knight's Black Knight, so you knew this would be coming eventually.

Yeah, this quotes "Strike the Earth!", and I was hoping that this may jog some users' memories about where this melody could come from.

#3
"Title"/"Title Theme"/"Main Theme", from Mario Kart: Double Dash!!
Timestamp: 0:01

I've been tempted to arrange a Mario Kart: Double Dash!! medley that contains the Waluigi Stadium theme, then the Mushroom City theme, then this.

At any rate, Mario Kart: Double Dash!! music is deceptively complex key-wise, what with chromatic neighbour tones (such as the note this melody starts with), flattened mediants in major-key pieces (like this one), flattened subtonics in major-key pieces, and all.

4 out of 5 people got this correct.

#4
"Money Machine"/"Crazy Rolling in Money", from Kirby: Planet Robobot, used as President Haltmann's (and President Haltmann 2.0's) boss theme
Timestamp: 1:22

This is one of the more consonant melodies in President Haltmann's boss theme, and I thought it would still be recognizable enough.

Given how dissonant and strange this is, I commonly think of this theme as "Max's Theme" (the boss's given names are Max Profitt), as it seems rather like Marx's theme updated for the 21st century. I detect world music influences in "Max's Theme", though, unlike in Marx's theme.

Dudeman should show up and get his Kirby: Planet Robobot song correct.

#5
"Winning Results"/"Result #1 (Win)", from Mario Kart 64, used as a results theme
Timestamp: 0:17

Yeah, I leaned pretty hard on The Deku Trombonist's transcription of this piece to write this melody.

This song is infamously in 11/8, and that can be pretty disorienting at times.

4 out of 5 people got this correct.

#6
"Sky Tower"/"Castle Area", from Kirby's Return to Dream Land, used as a stage theme
Timestamp: 0:00

Remember #6 from my last quiz, "Vagrant Counting Song of Retrospection"/"That Spinning Star is a Planet"? This melody sounds an awful lot like the last #6 I used, which is why I put it in that slot.

"Bowser's Castle", from Mario Kart 8, used as a racetrack theme
Timestamp: 0:17

I remember going through the Mario Kart 8 OST during work some time back, and when I raided this OST again for answers to a previous Guess-That-Song quiz, I bumped into this piece again and was reminded of how great it is.

I like the metal and jazz influences in this piece. It's rather like aggressive jazz fusion.

Now, why does the piece itself have to start with an F sharp minor riff when the rest of this piece is in D minor...

(...yeah, I know, there are FOUR Mario Kart themes in this quiz.)

3 out of 5 people got this correct.

#8
"Ai no Uta", from Pikmin, used as the "main theme"
Timestamp: 0:07

"Ai no Uta" is pretty much the only song I remember from the Pikmin series (and, even then, it's only by name), and I guess I've gotta transcribe Pikmin music for Guess-That-Song quizzes eventually.

So, I transcribed this cold.

I'm surprised we haven't used this song yet, especially given that it's in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

(The title translates to "Love Song"/"Song of Love", for those who care.)

#9
"Final Boss 2", from Freedom Planet, used as the second final boss theme
Timestamp: 0:03

I first heard this theme as a Musescore arrangement, FWIW. It was actually the part around 0:27 that caught my attention first--it sounds sorta familiar to me.

"Doom Dragon"/"Doom Dragon Battle"/"Final Boss", from Golden Sun: The Lost Age, used as the final boss theme
Timestamp: 0:04

Motoi Sakuraba has a habit of composing pretty insane mixed meter pieces, such as this one. Oh no, this isn't done changing time signatures yet!

I picked this theme because it's one of the only Golden Sun themes to appear in a Super Smash Bros. game. I picked this melody because it's one of the most distinctive melodies in the entire Smash Bros. remix, IMO.

"Heavy Lobster"/"Heavy Lobster Battle", from Kirby Super Star Ultra, used as a boss theme
Timestamp: 0:00

I've made enough references to this theme in other NinSheetMusic posts of mine, so I figured it was time to use it in a Guess-That-Song quiz.

As far as I can tell, this theme and Galacta Knight's theme are the only themes in Kirby Super Star Ultra that are completely new--all the other KSSU themes that weren't in Kirby Super Star are remixes of preexisting Kirby themes.

I was too lazy to transcribe the very-prominent-at-times accompaniment for this melody.

"Boss B"/"Boss Battle (Theme 2)", from Star Fox 64, used as a boss theme
Timestamp: 0:15

So I hear "Boss Battle (Theme 5)" is this song, just with a different intro. Yeah, I accepted it, too.

...Yeah, this is yet another VGM theme I first found by listening to a GaMetal remix. Fun fact: that's how I discovered Undertale music, too--I first heard that game existed from reading the description of the GaMetal Megalovania remix.

...All right, who came up with that 3-3-2-2 rhythmic pattern first?!?

Regarding Kirby Battle Royale:
Looks like the chance that King Dedede and Meta Knight will be unlockable instead of playable from the start just skyrocketed, and now there's a fair chance that only versions of Kirby will be playable in this game (although please, please stuff an unarmoured Meta Knight reference in the roster at least).
I happily eat some of my words.

According to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FN52fJ3kark&feature=youtu.be&t=334, Bandana Waddle Dee is playable. Dunno whether you unlock him in Story Mode or something.
According to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-yGIRD80MA (the Kirby Battle Royale demo trailer), Meta Knight is playable as long as you load demo save data into the true game. Not 100% sure whether the developers know he's overpowered in this game, what with the Meta Knight player's name in the trailer being "Easy Win" and all.

In the meantime, funny I said this before:
One of the most likely types of action game left is the beat-'em-up.
As of right now, the Wikipedia article on Kirby Battle Royale says it's a beat-'em-up/brawler. And no, I've still never edited Wikipedia. Especially that article.

...Oh yeah, the demo for Kirby Battle Royale is out:
Highlights for me:
  • The title theme of Kirby Fighters Deluxe is used as battle music (clear enough at 2:45). Heck yeah!
  • The storyline looks like fluff, as King Dedede hosts a "Dedede Cake Royale" and offers "the cake of your dreams" as the grand prize.
  • Story Mode involves playing more mini-games than just the Battle Arena.
  • Dunno how important Dark Blue Kirby will get, although since he shows up in the trailers as a separate entity from Meta Knight, he, his colouration, and his seeming importance are probably just a sly wink and nod to Meta Knight's fame.

Well, here's me and my Story Mode speculation for the full Kirby Battle Royale:
  • At some point, Kirby's stuck duelling Bandana Waddle Dee in a game of...uh...I dunno. I'd prefer that they get the battle out of the way relatively early into Story Mode, and that you unlock Bandana Waddle Dee as a playable character immediately afterwards.
  • My strongest prediction is that Kirby fights Robo Bonkers in Story Mode (somewhere in the middle). Come on, there's an entire mini-game revolving around this guy...
  • It seems less likely now, but part of me suspects that Kirby has to fight King Dedede in the Battle Arena near the end of Story Mode. Kirby gets to fully dictate what cake he wants if (when) he wins, and there's no way the castle can deny his request. ...Which will likely turn out disastrously given Kirby's food preferences...
  • ...Except that gets interrupted when King Dedede finds that another certain dark blue Kirby look-alike has crashed the tournament. Unfortunately, he's pretty good at fighting and mini-games, and now Kirby has to duel him for the prize in the Battle Arena. You guessed it--it's Kirby vs. Meta Knight. Maybe if you're too unlucky to import demo save data, you can unlock Meta Knight this way...

...And maybe King Dedede can be unlocked if you put a King Dedede Amiibo near the game. I dunno.

I mean...this is really, REALLY old news, isn't it?
Yeah, I also thought that interview was rehashing old news--the moment I heard of the Ultra Recon Squad, I thought the storyline would be pretty bulked up.

Glad to see that the English trailer confirms that Guzma's, Gladion's, and Lusamine's paths will be different in the Ultra games from their regular S&M counterparts. It must feel terrible for Gladion and Lillie to lose both their parents (instead of just one) to Ultra Space, though.

The English trailer seems to hype up Necrozma's role as a walking black hole, what with the stories of it absorbing Alola's light and all and being treated as evil. I have a feeling the trailers aren't telling all the stories about Necrozma, though, as there's still a need to explain that Dawn Wings Necrozma form name. The dawn is known to bring light back into the world, unlike Lunala the night-bringer, and I have a strong suspicion that it's Necrozma and not Lunala who's deciding to bring light back as part of Dawn Wings Necrozma.

Dedede; ...wait...no one's listening? They're saying he's self-declared and he shouldn't be the ruler? And now everyone will ignore his edicts?!? Great, don't tell me the Halberd has crashed into the building.
