I’m so excited at the prospect of plucky Monty mole going up against the Dragonborn or the history of human civilisation. My girlfriend just asked ‘What if Monty wins?’ ‘The forum goes up in flames.’
BFG Division lost out to Phendrana Drifts, and Luchador to Monty on the Run. Gusty Garden and Disco Descent, the alliterative tag team buddies, are hanging in there against the two heaviest of weights but this is looking like the last round for my last two selections and I’m not even mad. Such great music!
I adore the Skyrim theme, particularly the climactic Nerevar reprise, but the triumphant joy of Gusty Garden Galaxy – and crucially how that is sustained for its duration – is magnificent.
I could go either way with Disco Descent and Baba Yetu, they’re such wildly different tracks, but I fell on the side of Necrodancer because in these later rounds, when we’re down to brass tacks, I prefer the Soweto Gospel Choir’s vocals to the in-game version. Crypt of the Necrodancer makes no such ‘missteps’ and besides, it was never going to win! :-)
