Default BGMF Thunderdome 8 Nomination thread.

It's time (because I've found the turnout for these to be highest in the spring, and no one likes a dome with low turnout). You know how it goes: Pick a main and alternate track you like that's from a video game. In ten days (the 19th), we start voting on which is the best.

Also, tracks that finished in the quarterfinals or better in previous domes are automatically disqualified from this one. Thanks to MCBanjoMike for the list.

Nah, nah, you see we can't have a Thunderdome, Gravity Rush 2 hasn't been released yet. This ruins my New Years predictions...

...Okay fine, I still got plenty of songs from the first one I can nominate and fail to win with. This time its Assault Cnida.

Edit: I thought about troll nominating the NLA theme as my alt, but I decided the Noctilum theme is actually a good song. Plus the name: N木ig木ht木L

I just realized I shouldn't have two tracks mashed together as one nom, and I've nominated Magma Dragoon before.

Having just finished Pokémon Omega Ruby, there's a pretty good chance I'll pick one of its songs for one of my nominations.

Now to figure out exactly which...

Default A History of BGMFT

I don't know if this rule still applies, but in the old Thunderdays we would avoid nominating tunes that had previously made it to the top 8 of any previous Thunderdome. A while back, I compiled a list of all those songs, and here is the updated version (the original Thunderdome didn't conclude properly, so it isn't listed with the others):

Thunderdome 2 [bracket]

Black's Theme ~ Loco Roco
Clash on the Big Bridge ~ Final Fantasy V
Little Bonus Room ~ Skullmonkeys
Time's Scar ~ Chrono Cross
Kraid's Lair ~ Metroid
Tragic Prince ~ Castlevania:Symphony of the Night (WINNER)
Kimera II ~ G Darius
Boss Battle ~ Final Fantasy IV DS


Thunderdome 3 (what is even going on here?) [bracket]

Star Humming ~ Ristar
Emil Sacrifice ~ Nier
La Mer ~ Suikoden IV
Underworld ~ Terranigma
We're Finally Cowboys ~ No More Heroes
The Way Home ~ Terranigma
Pictionary ~ Pictionary
BGM 1 ~ Silver Surfer (WINNER)


Thunderdome 4 (revenge of the modern chiptunes) [bracket]

Vacant Interference ~ Ys 7
Exceeding Love ~ Suikoden III
Positive Force ~ VVVVVV
Barrage ~ Sin & Punishment: Star Successor
Potential for Anything ~ VVVVVV
Indignant Divinity ~ Tower of Heaven
The First Campaign ~ Etrian Odyssey 3 (WINNER)
Battle vs. Lord Blazer ~ Wild ARMs 2


Thunderdome 5 [bracket]

Power Plant ~ Bionic Commando: Rearmed
Introduction Theme ~ Wild ARMs (WINNER)
Indignant Divinity ~ Tower of Heaven
Whirlwind ~ Shinobi 3
Main Theme ~ Space Harrier
Snowy Valak Mountain ~ Xenoblade Chronicles
Satori Marsh, Night ~ Xenoblade Chronicles
Pleasure Quarter ~ Gravity Rush


Thunderdome 6 [bracket]

Creepy Forest ~ Plok
Douse Shinundakara ~ Gravity Rush
Guile's Theme ~ Street Fighter II (SNES)
Taking to the Skies ~ Nino No Kuni
Main Theme ~ Monty on the Run
Gaur Plain ~ Xenoblade Chronicles (WINNER)
Full Speed Ahead ~ Final Fantasy XIII-2
A Floral Creation ~ El Shaddai


Thunderdome 7 (my god, it's full of Shovel Knight) [bracket]

Strike the Earth! ~ Shovel Knight
Desert of Despair ~ Ys Seven
Dew Point ~ Risk of Rain
Wicked Flight ~ Bravely Default
Downtown ~ Gravity Rush
Hockey Man ~ Rokko Chan

You can also find YouTube playlists for many of the Thunderdomes on SpoonyBard's YouTube channel, for your listening pleasure.
