Reviews for "Psy-Kaliber 2097"

Great :)

Oh my, you certainly did it with the whole SNES feel in this piece. Was definitely reminded of oldschool games that I used to play as a kid.

Great to see you experiment with different stuff and have it turn out really well, as this piece shows; testament to how composers and their music grow. This did remind me of your older pieces from 2008, Castle of Tears and its sequel.

Can definitely echo LightRiku though. There isn't much constructive criticism to give when your work is already top notch. Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

NemesisTheory responds:

Haha nice! I always love hearing that! :D

Castle of Tears was definitely a high point for me, that was pretty much the first solid remix I could feel proud about, it did everything I wanted it to. <3

Thanks for the kind words and continued support, I hope the next song will be even better for you guys. <3


It actually looks very Castlevania-esque, looks like a sweet game. Can't say I've ever played it though.
But your music, man... asdahsdajaskasd.
You can compare yourself to other artists all you want, you've got something incredibly unique going on.
I just wish you had more time to pump these out :c
Downloaded, five'd, tenstar'd, love it, need it, want moar! <3

NemesisTheory responds:

It really is! Though it's really just a hack-'n-slash with a boss every stage, but the style is what drew me to it when I first played it (then, the music lol).

And thank you! <3
You will get moarrr in the near future don't worry! :D


Going through my favorite Newgrounds composers, I find that every single one writes music of the same style with a signature mix of sounds and moods that gets infuriatingly repetitive after listening to 10 or 20 of their songs. With this, you break that tradition while still keeping that "NemesisTheory" sound we all know and love.
Now for details. I personally disagree with LightRiku about the section from 2:07 to 2:31. It may have a slightly different feel from the rest of the song, but it is a refreshing break in what may have otherwise ended up being way too repetitive. In my opinion, it allows the listener to take a few breaths in preparation to a smashing finish...
About that "smashing finish." The end of the song seems too depressing and clean when compared to the rest of the song (which did indeed have the effect of "making you feel really dirty" xD). For a song like this one, one would expect something along the lines of a climatic finale rather than a cooldown. I'm not sure if you chose to end like you did because of the original song or simply because you liked it that way, but that's just my take on it.

NemesisTheory responds:

haha, I am a victim of changing up my style every so often, it gets kind of boring doing the same thing over and over but that's just for me personally XD

I'm happy you liked that part, as I said in other reviews it was pretty risky and not something I'd done before (let alone in a remix that's supposed to be 'serious'). The end style was chosen to reflect the original and the title and author of the original soundtrack (psy-), I'd also never really taken on GOA/Psy before and thought it would fit pretty well for an ending! You're right though, a better climax maybe would've been better, but I'll save that for a next remix. :p

Thanks for the review! <3

Yet another guy who's never heard of the game

It wasn't the title of the piece that made me click on it, it was the author. Doesn't matter if I haven't heard of the game, I can always count on you to put out quality songs. I wasn't disappointed of course. I feel like I always just give you a ten and rave about how good it is without offering much in the way of constructive criticism though. I mean, it's pretty much because I really think you're that good and can't ever think of anything to say in the way of constructive criticism. However, that part from 2:07 to about 2:31 I didn't like as much. I felt it had a different feel than the rest of the song and didn't fit. Just my thoughts. Keep on showing us your awesome composing skills! Can't wait to see what you come out with next!

NemesisTheory responds:

haha, aww, thank you!

you should totally check out the original songs though, they were so great for being in like what, 1994? really great video game music in my opinion. Not quite mario or zelda or anything, but it fit the style so incredibly well. :P

it's too bad you didn't like that part of the song! it was rather risky and to be honest it was something along line the lines of a hidden birthday present for someone. xD

thanks for the kind words and the continued support <3

love it

i love this song period.

NemesisTheory responds:
