View Full Version : FF Olympics: Name that Song!

09-28-2012, 12:38 PM
This is a pretty straight forward one folks: I will be posting song clips and each team will have to guess the title! Pretty simple, so let's get to the rules.

Dat Rule List!

- Each team can only guess ONCE per song, so be organized with your teammates!
- I will be taking the FIRST submission of a guess from each team
- Mark submissions in spoilers, if you don't I will dock points from your team
- A correct answer for a song will award 1 point
- There will be a BONUS ROUND, worth two points!
- Each song shall have at least 5 hours for guessing, this event should last around 2-3 days
- Format Guesses like such ##GUESS(SONG#): GUESS. Here's an example:

Booty call

Here's the first song kiddos.

Fat Chocobo's Theme!

Sweet, so I can leave this one up to you, Sam? I've gotta go rock the FFXII thread. :D

I have to go to work soon, Arturo! I won't have computer access. :( At least, not to listen to music things!

Zeromus Battle Theme

I am also probably done for the evening here, hopefully my team will be able to take over! :p

Zeromus's Theme

These could stand to be a bit harder, belike.

For GOD'S sake, Sam.

Zeromus' Theme

For GOD'S sake, Sam.

Zeromus' Theme

Yeah, I wouldn't have known that anyways.

10-01-2012, 03:30 PM
None of you got the actual title, but you did have the right song. So points for everyone.

FFV - 2 points
FFIX - 2 points
FFX - 2 points
FFVI - 1 point

These could stand to be a bit harder, belike.

I agree. This has been far too easy on everyone. So I ask for everyone's patience so that I can up the difficulty for the remaining rounds. I'll try to get the next one up tonight.

10-01-2012, 03:32 PM
Geez how can you guys be so wrong. Song1 was "Enter Fat Chocobo" not "Fat Chobobo Theme" and the second song is

The Final Battle

Now if we want to get really pedantic the titles are


edit: DAMMIT thats what i get for waiting 2 mintues to post...

10-01-2012, 03:48 PM
What team are you on blackmage? I will gladly use hosts prerogative to award a point to the one person to use the proper name if he's only two minutes late.

10-01-2012, 03:58 PM
He's VI!

10-01-2012, 04:01 PM
Cool. I checked the main thread but didn't see his name in the roster. Consider it edited.

10-02-2012, 01:07 AM
So here we are folks. New round time. The second one shouldn't be that hard given how recognizable it is, but the others? You may not be so lucky. Two songs this time to make up for the delay.


10-02-2012, 02:27 PM
I can't play the format of those songs, Vivi.

10-02-2012, 02:36 PM
I didn't have an easy way to get them into MP3 sadly. This media player will play them though: VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework! (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/index.html)

I can try and find a way to get them into MP3 tonight if anyone doesn't want to download that. I might have a program that will do it but I'll need to reinstall it to verify (and honestly, I've been meaning to reinstall it anyway). I don't know of any decent MP3 encoders off hand.

Well, I did ask for harder. I don't know what you did to that music, but it sounds like a fire hydrant at a dog show must feel like :)

The Big Whale? I honestly don't even know

Wait, is music from TAY included in this? I've never played TAY.

10-02-2012, 06:36 PM
There's no music from TAY. Just FFIV. I'm kind of surprised you aren't sure about song 3. I actually messed with it far less than number 4.

10-02-2012, 07:08 PM
Theme of Love

Then you messed around with it correctly.

10-05-2012, 01:54 PM
Moving things along, I didn't get the chance to edit more songs/get edited ones into MP3 form, so we'll run with it to keep things moving.

FFV - 3 points
FFIX - 2 points
FFX - 4 points
FFVI - 1 point

The answers were indeed Theme of Love and Prelude. Theme of Love was simply reversed while Prelude was reversed and had plenty of other things done to it to try and make it less recognizable. That goal was obviously pretty impossible without making things unfairly hard since the structure is so obvious.

Next up, another song which has been edited, but is in MP3 form Sam. Hop to it.


10-05-2012, 07:20 PM
Song 7? xD We are only on 5!

Hey, Cid! (Or Cid's theme, w/e)

10-05-2012, 07:42 PM
Ignore the song names. This was originally supposed to be a bonus question, but I pulled it up sooner since it was the only one that wasn't a straight clip.

Wah hah! :jess:

Cid's Theme!

Ah cool. :3 I was thinking that we'd suddenly done a lot more of these than I remembered.

10-05-2012, 10:33 PM
It was named under the file I made which at the time it was Song 7 :)

Bit of a break due to the long weekend, me getting sick, and X-Com coming out, so let's make up for lost time and finish this. Here's the current scores (everyone guessed correctly):

FFV - 4 points
FFIX - 3 points
FFX - 5 points
FFVI - 1 point

Final Round:
Link to song files. (http://www.mediafire.com/?634qgaeoogks9fs,dm7v30628zvijce,osa5h1c6tp1zgb3,f3cg9zyyzlb7bt8)

Straight forward wav files so I want no complaints about not being able to play them. Had to host them elsewhere since the file limitations are too small on the forums.

Also, because I originally promised a bonus round and because I'm pretty sure I made songs 6 and 9 too damn hard, those two songs are worth 3 points each. You have until Friday folks.

Song 5 Victory theme FF5

Song 8 The battle with the four fiends

I think that this is wrong...

10-11-2012, 12:00 PM
Victory Fanfare
Battle 2 - Boss Battle Theme
Mt Ordeals (I knew it wasn't the regular dungeon music, sounds so similar though. Can't pull the wool over my eyes/ears xD) (Uhhh, just looked at the rules, if I'm not allowed to change my answer now, my original guess was Into the Darkness)

10-11-2012, 06:25 PM
Im going to number them according to thier filenames in the link because you went 5,6,8,9 skipping 7...

Victor Fanfare
Chocobo Chocobo
Battle 2 (or Boss battle theme)
THis one's hard but I think it's "Main Theme of Final Fantasy IV" (The world map theme)

Citizen Bleys
10-11-2012, 07:09 PM
doing like bm_n

victory fanfare
Uh...jesus. My gut's saying chocobo, chocobo
Y'know, I don't think that song has an official name, but in every other game, it would have been called "Decisive Battle"; i.e., the non-4-fiends Boss music
Mt. ordeals

10-14-2012, 11:32 PM
That's it we're done. I'm actually kind of impressed people got the last one. I guess I'll need to try harder if we ever do this again.

Here were the answers:
Song 5 - Fanfare!
Song 6 - Chocobo-Chocobo
Song 8 - Fight 2
Song 9 - Mt. Ordeals

And the final scores:
FFV - 9 points
FFIX - 4 points
FFX - 10 points
FFVI - 9 points

Sadly for Shauna and the FFIX team, rules is rules so I can't count the last answer. Had you not reminded me of the rules I would have forgotten and given you the points. Luckily for you, you didn't need them.

10-14-2012, 11:52 PM
Damn, I am too honest a character.

But that was fun. :D Thanks a lot for your hard work.

10-23-2012, 01:11 AM
FFX wins the gold! Taking 25 points!
FFV and FFVI split silver and bronze splitting 18 points (12 for Silver and 6 for Bronze), getting 9 points each!
