Best Game Music Forever Thunderdome Nomination Thread (Featuring Dante from Devil May Cry)

I've heard it and you're right! Savaged Regime (Formerly "Gecko Yamori") DOES NOT MISS!
Indeed. He has spectacular talent with that soundchip, to the point where he probably rivals some of the best composers on the system.

1. murakami koichi - 真夏の海の修道女 (SOUND VOLTEX V VIVIDWAVE)

i was trying to find a song by "hommarju" while playing on the machine one night, and scrolled to "ほ" on the artist list. he wasn't there. this song was right next to where it would've been though, so i played it and it blew me away (i'm pretty familiar with his music before, and i may've even nominated one of his djmax songs to a previous dome...)

(later i remembered that the handle "hommarju" is spelled with an "お", because it's based on the word "homage". anyway)

2. kamome sano - ultra turbo (SOUND VOLTEX V VIVIDWAVE)

kamome's one of my favorite musicians in the doujin scene, and while (like a lot of them) i don't necessarily like her game songs as much as longer arranges and originals i really wanted to nominate one of her songs still. i think this is the first original flavor dome since she openly came out as trans? anyway, considering all that i think this one's the best choice i could think of. it's got a nice "game music groove" especially after the early bits, but some weird noodling too, which i'm always about

3. ito kenji - passionate rhythm (Romancing SaGa: Minstrel Song)

it's too cool. hahaha

4. tsutomu narita - nahlegrande (Granblue Fantasy)

i changed my mind a bit and decided that: 1, i shouldn't nominate edge cases even when i personally sincerely feel that they're appropriate versions of the songs to put in or whatever (i feel like that distinction is becoming a little harder to make especially now that in game tracks are often not presented in "play this song from the beginning" form as they traditionally were. but a couple things that came up were ultimately clearly not "osts" or "game rips" so i let it go), and 2, i really wanted to nominate a vocal song. in english. but not a ton was coming to mind aside from gbf and some of that ran up into problem 1 (defense order in particular) or has incredibly long intros that i don't think are so fun for people to listen to

the one i chose does have a vocal version, but it's a much softer arrange for the credits and is in japanese, and i really love the drama of this one. admittedly a lot of that is from playing the game, that part around 2 minutes in is where it kicks in for the first time when the story's finally progressed out of the starting plotline and taken the player to a whole new area of the map for the first time. the music really does a lot of the lifting for the game, and this part, promising a new realm of adventure, is really one of the greatest moments in the whole thing, i think.

I usually dont pay this much attention to the nomination period, is it usually this long?

It's about 2 weeks, same as a popularity contest. The idea with waiting until one dome is over before even submitting ideas for the next one is because fatigue seems to set in more easily for musicdomes than it does for top 50s.

2) Furi - Wisdom of Rage
3) Furi - Make This Right
4) Furi - My Only Chance

I don't get how this new forum works cuz I wasn't trying to embed it, but there they are.

Edit: Okay thanks Bongz. For reference, Furi's soundtrack is...like, crazy good. I could've taken another 4 easily. I might even change one before the deadline but...we'll see. It doesn't really matter, the point is it's crazy good. Please check that game and/or it's soundtrack out. It's cool. Make sure you listen to Wisdom of Rage all the way through, since that fight has phases and the song shifts depending on the phase. The last part during the last phase of the fight is fuckin' cool as Hell and far and away my favorite part (starts about halfway through). The Make This Right fight is super duper fuckin' wild, and the song kinda doesn't do it justice for how wild it gets. It's really cool. Damn, I gotta replay this now I guess. Well, I played it with my old roommate so I've never really done all of it myself.

I'm working out the precise details currently (and those will depend on how many lists we end up with by tomorrow night), but what's for sure is that there are going to be two brackets: a "qualifier" round for the bottom half of everyone's lists, and then the main bracket for the top half plus an undetermined-as-of-yet number of tracks from the qualifier round.

I need to finish that game. I got stuck on a very frustrating boss...

Noms are closed. I'll need some time to put this together, so it'll probably be tomorrow when we start. Please look forward to it.

Qualifier bracket is done. Because of the off number of tracks, 8 got a bye, selected at random. This round will go until there are 8 left, after which there will be one more elimination round to whittle it down to 6. Those 6 will join the other 58 tracks in the main dome. It all begins tomorrow afternoon.
