This is the last day of round one. I’m probably gonna do a loser’s bracket once the winner of the main bracket is determined. I’m open to other suggestions though.


#122

Wow, I’m glad In Circles won, but I never would have expected it to be an absolute landslide.


#123

Kinda surprised that there isn’t more Crypt Of The Necrodancer music on here, that game is just teeming with slick electro bangers and boss tunes.


#124

Sorry, still fighting off the last of this nightmare cold. Gonna take a few days break before starting Round 2.

Gurumin was tempting, but all the Sonic Generations boss remixes are masterclass.

#131

Rivers in the Desert vs Death by Glamour might be the most cutthroat matchup yet.

Have to go with Rivers… barely tho.


#132

I guess round 2 is the one where all my picks get eliminated.

#133

man its starting to heat up


#134

oh jeez, there are some tough matchups in this one, huh?


#135

Not my nomination, but I wanna at least throw it out there that the context of the Ludwig fight is REALLY IMPORTANT for its theme and that absolutely y’all should skip to 3:30 in the provided track link to get the full effect: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cF3LooXSxaI


#136

Adding onto this, the context is important for the shift in the song about halfway through.

Ah, you were at my side, all along. My true mentor, my guiding moonlight.


#137

Oh god I want to vote Automata in that last match up, but Stains of Time is too good.


#138

Much like @Peregrin mentioned with Ludwig’s fight, I feel context is necessary for every Metal Gear Rising song. The way each boss fight flows from an instrumental track into a vocal track will always give me chills (skip to ~5:00 if you want to know what I’m talking about).

(Spoilers ahoy)

#140

Not my nomination but that FTL song was an underdog I was really rooting for. Brutal match-ups.


#141
