Welcome back to GameFAQs Competitions!

So with June, we get in the pool, go to the beach, and generally just try to avoid the heat. What better way to avoid the heat than water after all? So this month I have some watery tunes. That is music from everyone's favorite level type, the water level! Hey, at least they usually have good music. ;)

The goal is to guess the game and either the area the song is heard in, or the name of the song. Either one will do for the area/song title.

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 @yoshifan1

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 3 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: $100 Steam Gift Card or 50 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 $100 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!

The Music!

Actually a question AssultTank (or whoever knows): how do Steam gift cards typically work?

I ask because I don't really play on Steam much. If I were to win it'd be something I give out on my Discord server some way or another.

It's a code that will add $100 to your steam wallet.

I just realized how often I like listening to water tracks in OSTs because they're usually slow and chill, makes good study music.

The correct answers for this may well make me add some tracks to my playlist.

(Still haven't listened to the tracks in the competition but I'll be soooo miffed if my favorite isn't on here)

I believe that I could get two of those correct. I'm always shocked anybody is able to do well at these things.

You don't mind if we send in one entry now and another later if we add to it, right? I want to send what I have now in case I forget later.
