Mmmmph. Nice match-up. Two very atmospheric tunes.

It's a close call but I'm going with Aquatic Ambiance.

pkGamerB
04-03-2014, 10:53 PM
Yeah, I thought it was pretty cool that these two ended up matched up. I really like both and had to listen to them a couple of times, but I think Crashed Frigate is just a little better. Even though it's a simple melody, it's hard for me not to go with the piano, and I love all of the ambient noises in the background too.

MrClassico
04-04-2014, 01:56 PM
I'm putting my vote for Crashed Frigate.

Aquatic Ambiance for me, so relaxing during a swim.

pkGamerB
04-07-2014, 04:10 PM
Aquatic Ambiance is our winner here, 4-2!

Next up is Green Hill Zone (Sonic the Hedgehog): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SF9ZLNxHaBY vs. Build that Wall - Zia's theme (Bastion): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jz8c17upEwM

Voting for this match-up will go until Saturday (April 12) at 5PM CDT. I'll update the OP with this info.

Hmm... I'll vote for Build That Wall - Zia's theme.

ZebraGoomba
04-07-2014, 04:41 PM
Build That Wall

MrClassico
04-08-2014, 02:20 PM
Gah! They're equally good but really different, so it's hard to compare the two, but I think Green Hill might win this one for me.

pkGamerB
04-12-2014, 10:56 AM
Another tough match-up. I've always loved Green Hill Zone and it carries a bit of nostalgia, but I'm going with Build that Wall (even though I prefer Setting Sail, Coming Home).

caramelslice
04-12-2014, 04:07 PM
These are both very different tunes...hard to say because I like them both. Gonna have to go with Green Hill Zone.

pkGamerB
04-12-2014, 06:50 PM
Build that Wall just barely squeaks by in this match-up, 3-2!

On deck is Romance in the Air (Skyward Sword) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7egFhuObEo vs. Last Battle (Cave Story+) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uxiaYyRkxMQ

Voting will go on from now until Thursday (April 17) at 5PM CDT.

Edit: Last Battle gets my vote.

ZebraGoomba
04-12-2014, 08:05 PM
Hmm, I suppose I'll go with Cave Story for this one.

Amaterasu
04-12-2014, 09:04 PM
I'll take Last Battle as well.

MrClassico
04-13-2014, 03:47 PM
Romance in the Air.

04-14-2014, 10:59 PM
I love the Skyward Sword tunes, but I enjoyed Cave Story more.

pkGamerB
04-17-2014, 05:28 PM
Last Battle wins 4-1!

Up next is Fighting for Freedom (The World Ends with You) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=roPi543zFVk vs. Beautiful Dead (Danganronpa) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WZb20NinCs. Voting for this match-up lasts until Tuesday (April 22) at 5PM CDT.

Amaterasu
04-17-2014, 05:58 PM
Hmm... Fighting for Freedom's not bad, but I like Beautiful Dead a bit more, so I'll be voting for it.

(...I also nominated Beautiful Dead, so that might make my decision a bit biased...)

ZebraGoomba
04-17-2014, 06:27 PM
Never heard either of these before, so it's nice to find some cool new music, but I'm gonna go with Beautiful Dead. It reminds me of some other game's soundtrack that I can't quite put my finger on.

Sonic62
04-19-2014, 05:27 AM
I'll give my vote to Fighting for Freedom.

Going with Beautiful Dead here.

pkGamerB
04-22-2014, 03:10 PM
I hadn't heard Beautiful Dead before, but I really like it so it gets my vote.

Tonight's update will be a few hours later than usual since I won't be home, so I'll keep voting open until whenever I post the winners this time.

pkGamerB
04-22-2014, 08:57 PM
Beautiful Dead takes this one 5-2!

Next is Love Theme (Mother 3): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=idULzIIF950 vs. The Town Where We Speak of Tomorrow (Etrian Odyssey Untold): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MkUcIfCS99w. Voting starts now and ends Sunday (April 27) at 5:00 PM CDT.

Edit: I like both, but I'm feeling The Town Where We Speak of Tomorrow a little more.

Amaterasu
04-22-2014, 09:23 PM
Hmm... another tough call, but I'll go for The Town Where We Speak of Tomorrow.

MrClassico
04-23-2014, 05:37 PM
Sidenote: I normally open both songs at the same time and pause one. Only this time, I forgot to pause, so I was listening to both at the exact same time thinking, "Wow! This song sounds great!" and then I paused and a song was still playing. XD I highly recommend listening to both at the same time: if you can get the two to match up the right way, it sounds FANTASTIC.

Anyways, very tough call, but I'm going to say The Town Where We Speak of Tomorrow.

ZebraGoomba
04-23-2014, 07:01 PM
Tough choice for me, but I'm thinking I'm gonna go with The Town Where We Speak of Tomorrow for this matchup.

Gotta go with the Love Theme, also going back and doing as Classico suggested.

It totally works perfectly! Nice find!

Voting for Love Theme.

pkGamerB
04-27-2014, 04:22 PM
I tried listening to both songs simultaneously like MrClassico said. It was... interesting, haha. Anyway, The Town Where We Speak of Tomorrow moves on with a 4-2 win!

Next up is Overworld (The Legend of Zelda): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpEzYEoV9qY vs. Stickerbrush Symphony (Donkey Kong Country 2): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J67nkzoJ_2M

Voting for this match-up starts now and ends on Friday (May 2) at 5PM CDT.

Edit: I choose Stickerbrush Symphony for this match up as well.

Amaterasu
04-27-2014, 05:11 PM
Stickerbrush Symphony.

caramelslice
05-02-2014, 12:14 AM
Stickerbrush Symphony for me.

MrClassico
05-02-2014, 01:57 PM
Gonna say Legend of Zelda- Overworld.

nmufred
05-02-2014, 03:21 PM
I love both songs so much, listen to them both frequently, but at this very moment, Legend of Zelda overworld theme gets my vote.

pkGamerB
05-02-2014, 04:34 PM
Stickerbrush Symphony (DKC2) beats Legend of Zelda Overworld 3-2!

The next match-up is Positive Force (VVVVVV): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tp3qiOKuEBM vs. Quatera Woods (Ys VI Falcom Zanmai Arrange): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8qWaRph7oo. Voting goes from now until Wednesday, May 7 @ 5PM CDT.

Edit: It feels wrong not to vote for Positive Force, but Quatera Woods is incredible, so it gets my vote.

Amaterasu
05-02-2014, 05:54 PM
Wow, this is a really tough call for me. Both are really good, but I think Positive Force just barely beats Quatera Woods for me, though.

nmufred
05-05-2014, 02:49 PM
I gotta go with the Ys VI tune even though I'm not familiar with this game or franchise much at all. #BadGamer

ZebraGoomba

Positive Force gets my vote for this one.

Sonic62
05-07-2014, 01:45 AM
Positive Force for that retro sound.

MrClassico
05-07-2014, 12:01 PM
My god, I love the sound of Quatera Woods.

pkGamerB
05-07-2014, 04:32 PM
This was a really good match up. It ended in a 3-3 tie, and unfortunately, one song has to be eliminated. Positive Force (VVVVVV) wins the tiebreaker vs. Quatera Woods (Ys VI Falcom Zanmai Arrange)!

Up next is Corridors of Time (Chrono Trigger): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESqZb7hY1S0 vs. Cornered (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RiBCgFwxXI. Voting for this match-up ends on Monday, May 12, @ 5PM CDT.

Edit: Tough one, but Cornered gets my vote.

ZebraGoomba
05-07-2014, 05:04 PM
Two great themes, but Cornered is just too awesome. Such an epic song. Even the simple tutorial case is epic thanks to this theme.

Amaterasu
05-07-2014, 05:07 PM
Cornered.

nmufred
05-08-2014, 04:24 AM
I hate not voting for a Chrono Trigger theme again, but Cornered is such a great theme, defines the mere couple of hours I played of Phoenix Wright for me perfectly.

MrClassico
05-12-2014, 01:30 PM
I like Cornered.

pkGamerB
05-12-2014, 04:04 PM
Cornered (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney) beats Corridors of Time (Chrono Trigger) 5-0! Lots of unanimous decisions this time!

Kicking off round 2, our next match-up is Aquatic Ambiance (Donkey Kong Country): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wAPpVplHiDE vs. Build that Wall - Zia's Theme (Bastion): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jz8c17upEwM. Voting for this match-up ends Saturday, May 17, @ 5PM CDT.

MrClassico
05-16-2014, 03:05 PM
Dat Wall, tho.
There's just something that I don't like in Aquatic Ambiance, can't quite put my tongue on it, but I have to go with Build That Wall.

pkGamerB
05-17-2014, 06:16 PM
Aquatic Ambiance (DKC) beats Build That Wall (Bastion) 3-2!

Cave Story for me.

Hnng, this match up. Cave Story has a really cool final boss theme, but I gotta go with Beautiful Dead.

MrClassico
05-18-2014, 09:28 AM

Gosh, this current round is tough. For the most part, it's essentially new school vs. old school.

Two different types of atmospheres from these tracks, but I'm gonna go with Stickerbrush Symphony.

ZebraGoomba
05-22-2014, 09:47 PM
I agree, it's hard to compare them. I get more enjoyment out of listening to Stickerbrush Symphony though, so that's where I'm placing my vote. It's just soooo good, man.

nmufred
05-22-2014, 11:03 PM
I was happily surprised by the Etrian Odyssey track, but Stickerbrush all day and all night! One of my favorite tracks of all time.

MrClassico

As soon as I saw the titles, I knew it was going to be a hard choice.
I have to go with The Town Where We Speak of Tomorrow.
