Ties are a sign of weakness. Tournaments are about domination and destruction, a lesson two unfortunate songs shall learn by my hand.

Vagrant Story – Iftrit has triumphed. Brave Fencer Musashi – Run Sword Fighter! perishes, alone and unmourned.

Super Mario 64 – Koopa Road is victorious. Grim Fandango – Ninth Heaven is forgotten to history.
