Welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

It's summer time, and what represents summer better than heat? I have included 25 clips that are 5 seconds each, you need to guess the game the clip came from as well as the area it can be heard in or the name of the song. In contrast to the January competition however, all the songs are from hot zones!

Again, a disclaimer; This competition is not officially sponsored by GameFAQs or CBS Interactive and all monetary rewards have been provided by the moderation staff.
This month's prize is sponsored by me!

Rules
Do not share information or ask for information from other GameFAQs users that may help you gain an advantage in this competition. Consulting family and friends in real life, who do not plan to partake in these competitions, is fine. If you are caught cheating you will be barred from future competitions and any posts will be moderated with a karma loss.

To Enter
Send a PM to me (AssultTank) with your answers. In your PM, please use the subject line "June Competition Entry" and make sure to number your guesses.
Example:
1. game - area/song
2. game - area/song

Scoring & Prizes
You will receive three points for guessing the correct game and 2 points for the name of the song or area the song can be heard in.

Prizes are:
1st Place: $50 Steam Gift Card or 40 Karma
2nd place: 30 karma
3rd place: 20 karma
4th place: 10 karma
5th place: 5 karma

In addition, two randomly-selected (non-blank) entries that did not win karma will also receive a 5 karma prize. So even if you have no idea what the correct answer is it may be worth participating, as you have a shot at the random prize!

Tied Entries
If there are multiple submissions that rank the same, they will all get that rank's prize, however this will bump down all lower ranked submissions by 1 rank. For example,
2 entries tie at 45 points for first place, 1 at 44 points, 1 at 41 points, 1 at 40 points, and 1 at 27 points.
In this situation, the 45 point entries would both receive 1st place. the 44 point entry will take 3rd place, the 41 point entry will take 4th place, and the 40 point entry will take 5th place.

The exception to the above is the $50 Steam Card, if you win this prize, you will not receive the Karma prize.

For the Steam prize; I will use Random.org to pick the winner in case of a tie for first place. ONLY 1 STEAM PRIZE WILL BE GIVEN OUT!

I like these types of competitions, even though I tend not to know more than 25% of them.

Numbering the tracks beforehand is supremely helpful, by the way. Anyway, yeesh, I only know three and recognize but can't place one more. That's random karma prize tier right there.

Yeah, I figured as much. Wanted to make sure you guys could tell them apart. :P

You can guess as few or as many as you want. A slim entry still enters you to win a 5 karma drawing for the people who didn't make the top 5.
