6-9

nice


#145


#146

The amount of tough choices this round is absolutely absurd, I swear. I had to think a bit more than usual.


#147

Yeah, I was surprised myself that A) how close Alan Wake was to Heavy Day and B) that I actually didn’t end up voting for 999 (though I would have voted if it was VLR’s theme)


#148

I have 4 of the songs in this pool on my phone.


#149

Lots of votes in already and just about every match could go any which way. This is nuts.


#150

I feel like the lyrics for Heavy Day are enough to usher it into the Finals.

Lyrics

DETO-

NA-

TOR

Will come out of nowhere, yeah

TRICK,

CHEAT,

FRAUD,

LIE,

Sulfur in the air!

So let it be or let it be says all debaters,

Six times a’knockin’ on the door,

No response, but hey, you ready?

BACK TO BACK!

Death Comes Arrivin’ on a Midnight Train!

BACK TO BACK!

Conscience is screamin’ to th e-e-e-end!

BACK TO BACK!

Cannot let anyone do it again!

BACK TO BACK!

I can no longer pret-e-e-e-end!

Give me a break, you damned!

Just wanna get back my dice again,

BLAZING DOWN!

What a Heavy Day!

NOW

YOU

HEAR

THE

Rumble from the ground, yeah!

So let it be, oh let it be,

Seems I’m the traitor

Six times a’knockin’ on the door,

Once last chance, you gotta stand!

BACK TO BACK!

Death Comes Arrivin’ on a Midnight Train!

BACK TO BACK!

Conscience I see screamin’ to the e-e-e-end!

BACK TO BACK!

Cannot let anyone do it again!

BACK TO BACK!

I can no longer prete-e-e-end!

Give me a break, you damned!

Just wanna get back my dice again,

BLAZING DOWN!

What a Heavy Day!

HEY!

HEY!

HEY!

We made a contract with a Clown and had a high old time

Nobody doubted his true purpose, oh yeah,

Not knowing we had given up something that we had left

All odds and options denied, trapped here in this dead end

BACK TO BACK!

Death Comes Arrivin’ on a Midnight Train!

BACK TO BACK!

Conscience is screamin’ to the e-e-e-end!

BACK TO BACK!

Blade is already on your jug’lar vein!

BACK TO BACK!

It’s now or never,

Last cha-a-a-a-ance to sta-a-a-a-and!

Give me a break, you damned!

Just wanna get back my dice again,

BLAZING DOWN!

What a Heavy Day!


#151

Yeah but Alan Wake has a fucking sweet guitar riff


#152

It sure does, but so does Heavy Day. And it has cheesy guitar solos and a guy who sounds like a mix between James Hetfield and Zakk Wylde on vocals, which isn’t really that good but is interesting and weird none the less.


#153

Yes, but Poet and the Muse has lyrics so on the nose that it crosses into bad it’s good territory at least seven times.


#154

We have a mess of possible tie situations brewing! Please please please remember to vote!


#155

Just going to say that my Russian child had better avenge Blue Reflection.

RESULTS

The Poet and The Muse - Alan Wake VS Heavy Day - Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- - 6-7
Shell - Twisted Metal (2012) VS Return of the Tres - Total Overdose - 5-7
em-pyei-n vari-fen jang - Ar Nosurge VS Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors - Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors - 6-5
Time is Changing - Dark Cloud 2 VS Legendary Theme - Gitaroo Man - 3-9

Death came running on a midnight train or rainy day or whatever and beat out Alan Wake, Overdose continues to trounce the competition with its great flow, 999 got beat by some sort of anime thing and I think it had a catgirl???, and Gitaroo Man’s soulful guitar soothed the changing time of Dark Cloud 2.

THIS ROUND…

Indestructible - Street Fighter IV VS The Silver Case (Akira Yamaoka Remix) - The Silver Case (Remaster)
Overworld 01 - Robo Warrior VS Beyond the Bounds - Zone of the Enders 2
Title - Mega Man 3 VS Rules of Nature - Metal Gear Rising
Introduction - Shatterhand VS The Sun Rises - Okami

Deadline is April 16th by 7PM Central


#157

A Russian anime catgirl, no less.

(That song is actually really good and I’m happy it won, despite loving the 999 theme).


#158

I was thinking about making this NES day and voting for Shatterhand, but the track ended before my thought did.


#159

This entire voting set is new versus old (The Silver Case is old, the remix theme I picked isn’t too different from the original).


#160

Actually looked at the matchups. Three no brainers and one fight between two games I’ve never played (I should really play the ZoE games at one point).

Still, sad to see Mega Man 3 didn’t really get a time in the spotlight. It’s the better opening vs MM2, but Rules of Nature is just too strong.


#161

I need somebody who wasn’t born in the 80s to tell me that these Mega Man themes are actually amazing and that they aren’t just triggering the nostalgia part of my brain. Although MM3 is no MM2.
