Thanks for reminding me. Will copy this to the OP.

Wow, we're almost to 64 noms already. What say you all to expanding the bracket to 128 and allowing three alts?

Let's go with some newer songs, one very new and one not quite so new.

Main: "Riding the Wind (feat. Rachel Mellis)" from Ori and the Blind Forest by Gareth Coker

Alt: "Spirit" from FEZ by Disasterpeace

Both more reflective songs than moving and high energy, but I think they are beautiful in their easiness and reflect the mood and tones of the games they're in quite well.

Sure, I've always got more songs. Alternative is to run another 64 bracket, but make it about covers! Mostly because I have some amazing ones I'd love to have an excuse to share.

this thread has literally only been up for 24 hours sheesh give some of us a chance to pick out songs

(What I'm saying is, expand the bracket, sure, but don't expand individual representation yet until we know exactly how many people will come out of the woodwork to nominate)

I thought the alts were just there to fill out the 64 if we didn't get enough primary submissions? I haven't had time to make a proper decision yet!

Changed my nom to have a better version of Battle with the Wanted, in case anyone's already noting them down.

Well I'm sure that I want to nominate something from Zombies/Corporate Lifestyle Simulator, but it's pretty hard to choose just one.

Let's go with Children of Dune.

I'll add an alt if I can think of one in time.

EDIT: Ah, what the heck. My alt is "Wiping All Out" from Persona 3 Portable.

Running a 128 bracket 'dome might also contribute to Thunderdome fatigue, regardless of the time of year.

Sometimes when we Thunderdome we have to make hard decisions. One of those decisions is deciding what to Main, and what to Alt.

This is true. And we had an absolute monster last year. 64 it is.

Two 'domes enter, one 'dome leaves! Two 'domes enter, one 'dome leaves!

(We can do a remix/cover dome afterwards if people are still interested)

Okay, if we're only getting two...and I thought about it a bit more, so just to clarify:

Main: Flash Flash Flash, by Yuzo Koshiro



Alt: Over the Horizon, by Hideya Nagata (the song from 17:10 to the end, in case the embed gets messed up somehow)



Edit: I found track names! Hooray! The X68000 soundtrack to Star Destroyer Bosconian is really good, please check it out!

I guess I'd rather a 64 with one per person, yeah.

Hello I would like to suggest that we have two different, concurrent Thunders Dome. One for cool video game music and one for music from Undertale. An Underdome, if you will. Thanks.
