After a four year hiatus... it's back!

SjQkKFl-wkAvZ_UTxHbpSz-O0q9bWmJe-9k8BHyejDXR0DtFbXhpP6Kw9j_RND420RcW-djtUAxi1-MlzrTPGJdWf31h1yZ9mPtu0DqsXnsqYBU4U4LDWW4g8wDnWw10Y3G6hb8g

Continuing my obsession with all things Only Connect, this year's quiz is entirely formatted around Only Connect rounds. If you're new to this, my games quizzes are on the tricky side, unless you are @Bicurious Dad. Here's a link to the 2013 quiz if you want some more to do.

It's purely for fun - my Christmas gift to you - so either comment below (with spoilers please), PM me if you're desperate to know an answer, or just do it in your head. It's up to you. Answers will be posted in about a week.

So if you're not familiar with Only Connect, first you need to remedy that, and second every round is on the theme of connecting items together under a single topic. It'll make more sense once we get going.

ROUND ONE - CONNECTIONS

First under the Egyptian hieroglyphs, four apparently random things. Can you spot the connection within the group? So I could have Triangle, Square, Circle, Cross = the PlayStation buttons.

Ideally use as few clues as possible.

1. Clyde

 Binky

 Pinky

 Inky

2. Open

 Look at

 Give

 Turn on  

3. Killer Instinct

 Battlefield 4

 Assassin's Creed IV

 Forza 5 

4. The Movies

 Theme Park

 Dungeon Keeper

 Black & White 

5. Most Wanted

 High Stakes

 Porsche Unleashed

 Underground 

6. Doki Doki Panic

 Magical Flying Turbo Hat Adventure

 M. Bison

 Bully 

ROUND TWO - FOURTH IN THE SERIES

Similar to round one, but predict what could be fourth in the sequence. Again, try and use as few clues as possible.

1. Metroid

 Metroid II 

 Super Metroid

 ??? 

2. PlayStation

 Game Boy / Game Boy Color

 Nintendo DS

 ??? 

3. Death Egg Zone

 Wing Fortress Zone

 Sky Chase Zone

 ??? 

4. Jick

 Jeff

 Jick

 ??? 

5. I'm too young to die

 Hey, not too rough

 Hurt me plenty

 ??? 

6. Arkangelsk

 Severnaya

 Kyrgyzstan

 ??? 

ROUND THREE - CONNECTING WALL

Find four groups of four.

ROUND FOUR - MISSING VOWELS

These games have had their vowels removed, squished together then spaced weirdly.

MR G LXY

D ST NY

C PHD

P RF CTDR K

PW RST N

W WSM CKDWN HRC MSTHP N

T HS TNL YPR BL

I'm done pretty much, but can't work out how to use spoilers on this new layout :( Also, great work delighted to see it back!

Just put spoiler in square brackets, it should work.

 

I think I'm done.

See the "UKFF questions" thread because I had to clear that up. However it couldn't handle the massive amounts of spoiler tags I needed and died.

@Bicurious Dad you have destroyed another one of my quizzes! Well done.

Thanks for doing another one, it was great fun and some real troublesome questions. Definitely think a good chunk of it fell in my favour because of my own gaming history/interests. Also, as a huge Only Connect fan I also love the format so that helps too :)

  Reveal hidden contents

 

What about Metroid Fusion on the Gameboy Advance for the final part of that question?

 

 

Are you talking about @Bicurious Dad's answer? Note I didn't say he got them all right... But he does have a pretty good hit rate.
