Katamari Damacy made a shocking run all the way to #1 in Demyx’s PS2-era Best Video Game tournament series, easily the least-predictable champion. Much more predictable is Katamari On The Rocks getting a whopping 78.26% of available upvotes, launching it to the #2 overall seed. It might slip a little over the next few weeks but I doubt it’ll fall too far with a score like that, and it could very easily uphold the Katamari name and win it all.

Disappointed Ollie King’s “Boarder 70” couldn’t make it in. The bubble number stays at 36.36%. Will it hit 40% before all is said and done?

It’s time for group play! We have 1,086 songs in this tournament; they have been broken up into 34 groups of 322. For the group stage, vote for as many songs as you like! We’re doing things a little differently this time around. Winning your group no longer means anything; instead, songs will be ranked based on how many upvotes they got compared to how many people voted in that round.3 After all groups are done, the top 256 songs from across all groups will advance to the playoffs!

…unless! By popular demand, we’re also implementing a diversity system! If an individual game places more than 10 songs into the top 256, songs 11+ per game will face off against songs 257+4 in a play-in round.

We’ll be “feathering” groups; voting on group 24 will be active until Friday September 11th at 10:00PM Pacific. Group 23 is active until 10:00 pm tonight; vote here. Group 25 will start Friday and be active until Sunday, and so on. Please listen to every song! Don’t just vote name recognition.

You can listen to all songs in group 24 in this handy YouTube playlist!  (Don’t worry, songs will also be linked in the comments, where voting will take place)

You can work ahead if you like:

Again, voting for group 22 is open until Friday September 11th at 10:00PM Pacific
