The 5th Non-Annual VGM Tourney Holiday Special (Finals)

ResultsEvent

Hotline Miami - Knock Knock
(Kinda stale, but I still like it more than the other two.)

#smw{>_>}

Death Road to Canada - Rigor Mortis Rag
(This is lots of fun.)

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - One They Fear
(2 minutes and 20 seconds isn't really that big of a loop, lmao. Also this is epic af.)
i/ best of times - generic touhou no thx. hotline miami has cool soundscape but is extremely boring musically. which leaves this
ii/ the grounds color is yellow - one of the better touhou songs (10.5 has one of the better soundtracks overall for whatever reason). the other one sounds like 2009 newgrounds music and would convey the exact same ideas in 1 minute instead of 8 why is it 8 minutes long
iii/ rigormortis rag - not big on either but this ones about canada so sure
iv/ minuit a fond la caisse - maybe the easiest matchup yet. this one is hella neat tho i wish it scrapped the orchestral side entirely and had more like 1:55. skyrim is skyrim fuck you skyrim

e: lol whoops forgot the song names
soundcloud / bandcamp / twitter / buy/stream my EP / buy my touhou music
World of Goo - Best of Times
(knock knock is a jam, tho)

Touhou 10.5: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody - The Ground's Color is Yellow
(I don't like a lot of touhou themes but this is okay. Gotta say I don't care much for it though.)

Mario Party - Move to the Mambo
(honestly not sure why I like this more)

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim - One They Fear
(OFF does some neat things but this is great to listen to even after playing a lot lot lot lot lot lot of skyrim)

Hotline Miami - Knock Knock
Derpy always places my nominations to die early -.- These two tracks were both great. This one is especially groovy.
I admit ZUN's work is not of the best quality of production, but Last Remote has some damn soul in it.

Touhou 10.5: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody - The Ground's Color is Yellow
Really not too huge on the OJ one. Also I'm always bewildered by how different this song originally is from the port in the section.

Death Road to Canada - Rigor Mortis Rag
Neither appealed to me at all at first lol, but this one gets kind of nice

OFF - minuit a fond la caisse
This is really, really good.
tbh most orchestral songs sound all the same to me

--------------
Crypt of the Necrodancer - Power Cords (Would've maybe voted Kirby if the song ended up going somewhere, but this ended up the best)
Lethal League Blaze - AIN'T NOTHIN' LIKE A FUNKY BEAT (really damn great, macross track is also solid)
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Gangplank Galleon (bad remix but the original is good enough to surpass the other two tracks)
Persona 5 - Rivers in the Desert (if its any consolation Big Earl Bump is a pretty good ringtone)

Do not pay attention to the false prophets, for 76 year old japanese man is not vgm.
Kirby Planet Robobot - Final Boss Phase 2

Shooting Macross (SNES): Scrambled Valkyrie - Water Factory (Stage 3)

東方自然癒 - Fading World

Persona 5 - Rivers in the Desert
i/ power cords - kirby one is bland as anything. skyrim is skyrim. im completely tired of danny b but i guess it still prevails here
ii/ water factory - fuuuuuuuuck this is a brutal matchup. i love both so much but nothing else sounds like shooting macross
iii/ gangplank galleon - fading world is neat but....donkey kong................ the other one is hot garbage tho
iv/ rivers in the desert - very very far from a favorite atlus song but it's miles better still than the alternative which fails to stand out in any conceivable way aside from shit instrumentation
soundcloud / bandcamp / twitter / buy/stream my EP / buy my touhou music
Crypt of the Necrodancer - Power Cords

Shooting Macross (SNES): Scrambled Valkyrie - Water Factory (Stage 3)

東方自然癒 - Fading World

Persona 5 - Rivers in the Desert

a 76 year old japanese man is confirmed for smash as the third dlc fighter
Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil - Nox Atra
(this isn't really "slap it in your mp3 player" listening material but it's a great background piece, probably gonna lose though)

Lethal League Blaze - AIN'T NOTHIN' LIKE A FUNKY BEAT
(RIP Shooting Macross, police almost couldn't identify the body)

東方自然癒 - Fading World
(Gangplank Galleon's short muddy vocal section is a big turnoff for me considering the rest of the track is incredible, Kung Zhu is forgettable)

Toejam & Earl - Big Earl Bump
(Persona does a pretty good job with vocals, the issue with Rivers is I just don't really like it)
Crypt of the Necrodancer - Power Cords
(all are bad, but this one is less bad IMO; I would have totally voted for Robobot if it wasn't for the most bland phase of the entire final battle being nominated tho)

Lethal League Blaze - AIN'T NOTHIN' LIKE A FUNKY BEAT
(hoooooly shit man, I agree with Sinc-X on this, this is just really hard to choose; both are extremely good, but ever since this was nominated I was deadset on voting for this for the start, so sadly Shooting Macross has to die for the greater good; sorry, but Hideki Naganuma is too good lmao)

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Gangplank Galleon
(fuk u Derpy)

Persona 5 - Rivers in the Desert
(the other song is okay, but I gotta go with the Persona jam tbh, even tho I know nothing about Persona other than the soundtrack lmao)
Layout by Mathos
-I-
Crypt of the Necrodancer - Power Cords
(liked the Kirby one but the Skyrim one was the one that got even close. I just love this kind of music, could easily see myself running or jogging to this)

-II-
Shooting Macross (SNES): Scrambled Valkyrie - Water Factory (Stage 3)
(dammit these both sound so fucking good and I could see myself jiving to both of these while playing the games)

-III-
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Gangplank Galleon
(it's fucking gangplank galleon, dude. GANGPLANK GALLEON)

-IV-
Persona 5 - Rivers in the Desert
(mmmmmm)
Crypt of the Necrodancer - Power Cords (i really liked Nox Atra tho)

Lethal League Blaze - AIN'T NOTHIN' LIKE A FUNKY BEAT (the first round ive voted for thus far that was actually a tough decision)

Kung Zhu - Boss Battle (if it was the original gangplank galleon tho it would've gotten my vote in a heartbeat. all of these smash brothers remixes are always soo bad)
e: fuck it, i'll vote Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Gangplank Galleon

Toejam & Earl - Big Earl Bump (that persona track is awful)
umm... can i help you!?
Beyond Skyrim: Cyrodiil - Nox Atra

Lethal League Blaze - AIN'T NOTHIN' LIKE A FUNKY BEAT

東方自然癒 - Fading World

Persona 5 - Rivers in the Desert



nox atra (kirby one sounds like someone booted up fl studio for the first time and tried to do blade runner, necrodancer one is kinda annoying)
ain't nothin like a funky beat (i like what the other one tries to do but i think it runs up against hardware limitations HARD)
fading world (weirdly mixed but it kinda works? stops the heavy parts from actually sounding heavy and thus they don't clash badly with the piano)
rivers in the desert (i guess... not huge on either of these tbh. i do like toejam & earl music in the context of the game and it does a good job of incorporating the funk but the instrumentation is a great example of why people dont like the genesis sound chip)

-I-
Crypt of the Necrodancer - Power Cords

-II-

-III-
東方自然癒 - Fading World

Toejam & Earl - Big Earl Bump


edit: someone should update the title btw ;p








smh at 30 minute loops

Nox Atra (Korby seemed very bland and crypt didn't really do anything for me)

AIN'T NOTHING LIKE A FUNKY BEAT (gotta stick with my nom nom)

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Gangplank Galleon (pretty tough decision between this and Fading World)

Persona 5 - Rivers in the Desert (I was thinking about a NO VOTE but this one isn't that bad really)
Crypt of the Necrodancer - Power Cords
Shooting Macross (SNES): Scrambled Valkyrie - Water Factory
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Gangplank Galleon
Persona 5 - Rivers in the Desert
