@Anti-Matter Those kind of rhythm games are pretty niche and the music is fairly different from the rest of the games in the tournament. At the end of the day this is just for fun and to help people discover new music from games they might not have played.

Victors from the first matches of round 3 are Final Fantasy VI at 6-2, Super Smash Bros. Brawl with a tiebreaker at 5-5, Lego Jurassic World at 5-4, Rhythm Thief at 6-3, and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon at 6-2.

I'm more shocked at FF7 Crisis Core only getting 2 votes, I haven't played the game but I thought that was a great song. Though it does sound a lot more chill than most final boss themes, so maybe people didn't think it sounded very fitting.

We're finally getting to the point where I don't have to listen to the songs again to know which one I like more. A mixture of having heard them for previous rounds and more songs I already am all in on.

Live and Learn vs Fly Octo Fly is the hardest choice of the tournament so far.

I am loving the unlikely run of Main Street Showdown. It'll probably hit a Dancing Mad-shaped brick wall next round, but it was fun while it lasted.

Man, the Splatoon songs are getting sniped by popular picks. Shame.

Edit: Guess I was wrong.

I can’t believe tabuu won

Edit: as a bit of a fun fact. I went to hear Main Street Showdown in-game and it does absolutely end just like that. It loops back to the start after the cut.

It’s interesting Cynthia is beating Megalovania, but both are amazing, I’m happy with either winning

Heigh Ho Heigh Ho. It’s off to work (from home) I go.

Okami and Metal Gear are quite the close Vote and there i thought Okami would be a clear win

I love the fact Finale beat Megalovania, it’s just a great song in my opinion

Finale is more narratively cohesive then Megalovania too imo. Much more leitmotifs, and one of the best fist pump moments in gaming in my opinion, escaping the horror of Your Best Nightmare and finally reaching a point where you could hit this nightmare fuel. This fight was probably the peak of Undertale for me. Megalovania is a great song, but it doesn’t have any hidden depth, by design. You’re this horrible monster, you don’t deserve any backstory or lore.

live and learn is still better tho

One pretty easy and one impossible choice here.
One-Winged Angel wins in a layup. Tabuu is great, but it’s One-Winged Angel.
Now Live and Learn versus It Has To Be This Way is much harder. I guess at the end of the day, it comes down to which is the more cohesive listening experience, and it takes It Has To Be This Way just a bit longer to rev up.
