VinnieMac, though, has graciously offered to pass on his karma prizes for several reasons, so I'll be bumping the karma prizes down a slot for each of the past four contests, as well as this overall contest. That means that each Top-5 finisher from April, May, June and Overall will receive one karma prize higher (and The Mana Sword, Dark RPG Wizard 06, Ytterbium_70, and GrandKirby will now receive the 5th-place prize for each contest).

The answers to the five songs that were never guessed are as follows:
February, #24: Ace Combat 5 -- interestingly, two other Ace Combat games were correctly guessed, so I was a bit surprised no one got this since several people mentioned looking into series that seemed to come up more than once.
April, #24: Tiny Toon Adventures: Babs' Big Break - also, props to VinnieMac for noticing I initially left the answer visible when I posted the results.
June, #14: Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit -- I have nothing interesting to say about this.
June, #25: I Have No Mouth, And I Must Scream -- A few times people have mentioned being tuned to certain games because I've either reviewed them or written about them in my lists, and this was a direct play on that.

Congratulations again to all the winners! You'll receive your karma prizes soon... and I mean it this time.

If anyone is interested in hearing some more contest stats, let me know and I'll be happy to provide them.

I suppose 10th place is alright considering I missed the January contest. Probably could have jumped to 7th or 8th otherwise.

Oh well!

I guess I was wrong about April #24, I never heard it before afterall. I only knew it was a GB game based on the sound quality.

Oh wait!! What was June #20?

Anyways, good contest! It was fun for the time I was in (I thought I had to name the song name for March so I didn't enter)

Had VinnieMac accepted the karma, how much would he have gotten? Because he would probably be #1 on the highest karma list.

He would've gotten 500 -- 100 for each of the last three contests and 200 for this. You're right, that definitely would've put him at the top.
