  1. My apologies. After reading a bio of Kefka I realized how little I actually knew about him. I should've looked into his story more before making my remarks on the lyrics. They make more sense in that context. I'm still curious about what "Morte aeterna" means. Eh. Nevermind. Just looked it up. "Eternal death":

    "Grant unto them eternal rest

    Eternal death

    Lord, have mercy!"

    Definitely a song fit for Kefka. The ironic thing is you say you'd think they'd pray for him to grant them eternal rest (eternal death) to end their suffering at his hand, but the God of mainstream Christianity is portrayed as endlessly torturing souls in hell. It's no wonder many become atheists or agnostics. But is it an accurate picture of Him?

    Hats off to very deep lyrics

  2. I think there was a group trying to make one, but the project died. Search around the forums, but I'm pretty sure it died.

    Nonetheless, if there was enough interest, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to get it up and running again.

    Although I hope there's more people trying to bring in content for OCR. Things like wallpapers etc are good for helping spread the word. People often promote sites like these in their personal works and post them on sites like deviantart etc.

    Hopefully more people will start doing things like this, because OCR deserves all the publicity it can get. :<

    Apparently the link to this wallpaper died, too :(

  3. For some reason I have an issue with Bit Torrent files.:banghead: I'm not sure why but I can never download them properly. Anyone have a copy of this album that isn't in torrent format? I would really appreciate if someone could help me. Thanks. ;-)

    May the Force be with you.

    You don't have to download it as a torrent file. You can download the zip file (album artwork included) from the site by clicking on "Download the Complete .zip file!" just below the torrent link. Just to make it easier, here's the link: .zip"]link

  4. Heh, there's no doubt that the Russian piece is the inspiration behind the Hideo's franchise theme, they're so similar. This doesn't constitute plagiarism, I don't think, because the two themes differ enough. But, as it has been pointed out, the MGS rendition is waaaayy better. And the jazz is nice btw

    EDIT: I think it was plagiarism if credit wasn't given to Sviridov, as it seems it wasn't since it took everyone by surprise when the similarity was pointed out. But I don't know that it constitutes copyright infringement, since the creative works differed enough. I'm not sure, though, since, at least in the original MGS theme the whole structure seems to follow Winter Road so closely. I dunno

    Also, I take back that the MGS theme is waaaay better. After listening to Winter Road several times, I think it's extremely beautiful
