I have a strong aversion to songs with singing in the games I play, but the NieR: Automata tune itself is great.

I'm confused. Neither of these seems to be from a Metroid game.



No Lovers Allowed

(The Nier thing is neat but kinda overstays its welcome after the lyrics kick in)

I want Samus to be the most famous video game heroine! Blame Eidos' marketing efforts in the 90s.

EDIT: I compared Google result counts, and now I think maybe I shouldn't have done that.

EDIT EDIT: but I'm sure Samus is more famous amongst trust Scotsmen.

I just woke up so I'll listen to the songs, vote and present the next round in a few minutes when I'm more coherent.

Before I go into results and the next contest, my votes are:



All right, the second round is over! Let's see who the winners were...



These were bad enough dudes to save the president! NiER won a close battle 11-9, while No Heroes Allowed lived up to its name with its 14-6 victory. They're off to the VIP lounge until the quarterfinals!



Match 5 brings together two very different genres: one is a RPG series with a unique constructed language fueling its music, while the other is an adventure/walking sim with a distinctive visual style.

Sponsored by aturtledoesbite, let's give it up for Ar tonelico: Melody of Elemia's EXEC_PHANTASMAGORIA/.!



And in the other corner, we have Firewatch's I'd Rather Go Blind entering the arena, managed by Daikaiju!





Match 6 is a heavyhitter, with two major cult JRPG legends squaring off in this duel to the end!

four-so leads the charge with EarthBound's Smiles and Tears!



And their opponent, represented by Sarcasmorator, is the Staff Roll of Vagrant Story!



Tyrants, the time to vote has begun! Your votes are due in by 7 AM PST Wednesday.

I am sad that I missed voting for my nominations KILLER 7 THE HEDGEHOG, but I am okay with Skies of Arcaida going on in their stead, because Skies is the shit.

Firewatch gets the first round for me, because fuck your cutesy anime bullshit.

And The second round is ehhh... Vagrant Story. I guess. Whatever.
