Another tough couple matchups. Some were definitely no contest, like ALBW over Castlevania. I picked for an upset of Fusion over Link's Awakening. Just not a fan of that game. Same can be said about KI:U. I don't think it's as good as others on here have claimed, so I had to choose Minish Cap, which I enjoyed. Xenoblade vs. Contra is just cruel, but I had to go with Xenoblade despite Contra being the better game for just picking up and playing.

Prime vs. Paper was actually my toughest matchup. I went with Prime, but I have a weird feeling in my gut about it. Hmm. I think the later Prime games have hurt Prime(1) in my mind. I feel like I'd spent 200 hours doing the same damn thing when its all sad and done.

This bracket has the most games I haven't played. Link between worlds and Link's Awakening both advance on merit, or something. They're basically Link to the Past, which essentially has a BYE in my book. Is Minish Cap good? I have no idea. Voted. Never heard anyone complain about Minish Cap's controls, unless that is the one where you have to use the Stylus. Is that the one where you have to use the Stylus? I'll freakin' change my vote right now.

Xenoblade is all big and "epic" or whatever, I but I'm sure I've spent more time on Contra. And you can beat it in 20 minutes. What a RAD GAME. And look at that logo. WOW. (Also, I own a Contra shirt, but no Xenoblade shirt. WHAT'S THAT SAY.)

Kid Icarus Uprising is my favorite game in this 1/4th of the bracket. Too bad it had to go up against Zelda. I knew that Uprising or TWEWY wouldn't be able to beat big names like Zelda and Mario, but I didn't expect them to lose this badly.

Prime 3 versus DKCR looks like quite a battle, although DKCR seems to have pulled ahead over the last few posts.

It's a shame TWEWY looks like it is not going to win as I have quite a soft spot for that game.
