October Quiz - Answers & Score

Are all the dead back in their graves? Very good! It's time to end this round and post the answers... this month I tested a different score model, instead of the "one-point-per-game" rule I made the score much more dependent on the percentage of correct answers. While the cake is still worth 25 points, you'll get a much smaller slice (less points) for a simple answer as opposed to a tough game that barely anyone recognized.

However, the result is that most people have significantly lower scores. :( After posting the german-language results yesterday the feedback has been generally negative, and I will probably return to the original scoring method. Anyway, check for your name in this table (link) to see how you classify compared to the other system, and let me know your thoughts in a comment?

On the bright side, we welcome a new community: Hello Waypoint forum (Waypoint - Forum)! :D

Thanks as always!

I like the new scoring system so if you wanted to do it one more time and maybe poll as a bonus question to keep it or drop it you'll at least have my one vote to keep it! And I saw I scored 3 less using the new scoring system but I think it's more interesting and makes hunting for the tougher answers feel worth it instead of just thinking, "Eh, just losing one point, I'll skip it."

I completely forgot Call of Duty games have a zombie mode. I never even tried looking into that for the answer.

You're getting real close to 100 participants. Hopefully next month you hit it! And I probably could have found Zombie Zombie if I kept looking but I moved on pretty quickly with that one since I'm bad at games of that era so I didn't have a lot to work with.

Oh, but I'm afraid you're the only positive voice. Everybody else doesn't like the new scoring! It gives people that know a lot an even bigger advantage, and those who only recognise some classics get even fewer points... and with the old system you could tell right away how many answers you got right. :) So I get what you are saying, but I am quite sure I want to go back to the regular scores.



I have the same amount of points than last time :disapproval-blob:
How can I believe in myself now :suicide-blob:
Nonsense, those 11 points was just the new scoring test. Your regular score would have been 14! :)

(November quiz coming up by friday)

November Quiz - the damsel in distress

In the past years there were already two riddles with the theme "female protagonists", where you had to guess games where the player characters were women. This month's topic however has a lot less empowerment, as we are only dealing with women in need of saving - the damsel in distress. Be it the abducted princess, a disappeared girlfriend or some helpless girl locked in a cage. As usual the games cover a wide range from classics to obscure indie titles, but you are probably used to that by now. :)

I hope you enjoy this new round, and where is that title picture from? :p

Deadline is Saturday the 30th November, please participate via November 2019 - the Damsel in Distress

Here is the quiz, good luck!

Hints will hopefully help out here as I only know around 17 without looking anything up. A couple others look really familiar. This'll be a fun challenge for sure.

November Quiz - Clues #1

Thank you Mario, but our princess is in another castle! Even though by now every game has been named correctly at least once, even the best participants so far are still several points short of a full score. Maybe some clues will help? ^_^

So far there are 32 people in total, and one from here.

Here we go:

1) The following pictures show the intro of the game: 1, 10, 11, 13, 14, 17, 20, 23 und 25. I'm not sure about number 15.
2) Game one and game three have the same protagonist.
3) Number 13 is a game by Namco.
4) Game 18 is the newest title in this round.
5) Game 24 was not released on consoles.

Deadline is Saturday the 30th November, please participate via November 2019 - the Damsel in Distress

November Quiz - Clues #2

Alright everyone, looks like you only have one week left to join this round, after that we'll determine who managed to save any princesses. ;) The Top 10 starts at 19 points, so there's still plenty potential for all of you to get a nice score.

So far we are 44 participants, one of which is from this community. Currently english and german forums are tied for user count, it's 22 each!

Here are the last clues:

1) The following games also got an Arcade release: 3, 5, 7, 10, 11, 12, 13, 20.
2) Number 24 is a 2D Platformer.
3) Number 25 is a 3D Action RPG.
4) Title 21 plays a bit like God of War.
5) These games are exclusive to one platform: 1, 4, 16, 25.

Deadline is Saturday the 30th of November, please participate via November 2019 - the Damsel in Distress

Here the quiz link for the last time.

I did not do well compared to my usual outcome. I generally aim for around 20 and this time I'll have right around 15 right. I left a bunch blank because I just didn't feel like I could find a good answer. Of those three or four I definitely "know" but couldn't remember what they were. And a few really bug me because I just have zero idea but they look interesting. I'm solid on 14 of the first 15 but after that I just suddenly knew nothing.

Also, my answer to your bonus question might be confusing.

Ah man, I should have just put Eversion. I recognized the look of the game from that picture and immediately thought Eversion but I didn't realize it had someone to rescue. I only remember the first level of the game to some extent.

Wasn't sure about a few ones... But I'm kicking myself for Prince of Persia, that was my first thought and I left it blank :suicide-blob:
It was mean of me to pick such an obscure port. ;) But yes, you and Wibblewozzer need to start putting names in even if you're not 100% sure. :)

Do you keep track of all previous scores ? Is there a ranking somewhere ?
There's a big high score post for each year (usually in January), where all forums get ranked against each other, and also a global top 100 of users. There's 10 quizzes a year, so only one more for 2019!

Number 23 is Karateka? :oops:
I played the game on c64 and I'm only just now recognizing the image.
To be fair, Karateka is 35 years old. To not remember an ancient game from a fragment of a screenshot... don't be too hard on yourself. ;)


Luckily I've played Turok 2 just a few months ago, can't forget those kids!
Is any old Turok still worth playing in 2019? I have some memories of very foggy & frustrating platforming...

The modern remasters did a wonderful job with them. That said, the first one is still good, just a bit repetitive and full of design cliches from the N64 era (like lot of things to collect), but still worth playing. Turok 2 has some good things but it's full of bad platforming and confusing maze-like levels, the first one is much better, can't recommend it.
