Here's how each monthly feature will go: I'll have the title of the song, along with the song itself for you to enjoy. Underneath, I will describe what this song means to me and how it affects me, plus I'll add in any fun facts about the piece.
For the month of October, we decided to choose one of the more creepy or haunting themes. One of the most eerie locations in the Final Fantasy series is Nibelheim (as well as Shinra Manor), and so we settled on the theme "Anxious Heart"
(¯`·-..· Anxious Heart ·..-·´¯)
We have chosen to feature the Crisis Core remaster of this theme. It is a slow and simple melody, but it gives off such a forboding feeling that cannot be ignored. The moment you step foot in Nibelheim and begin to explore, this music tells you that there is more than meets the eye. The recreation of the Nibelheim incident in Crisis Core further magnifies this feeling as you live it first hand as Zack. This is the place where Sephiroth discover's the deep, dark secrets hidden within Shinra Manor; his true nature is then uncovered, and I believe that makes this little town all the more sinister.
