Yesterday i was contacted out of the blue by Sega, not the Benelux PR or anyone I'm familiar with, you might have heard me squeal about it in the JoD offtopic topic lastnight. But yes, big things are going down here at the .Com. I wish i was lying... wait.. no i don't.




I come bearing a message from Sega to the .Com:

"We haven’t forgotten you… far, far from it."




Awesome behind the scenes stuff is being planned for us (even I'm in the dark about this lol). So join me in waiting anxiously like a small annoying child on a car trip.

I was also given a few things for the site (which was nice and thoughtful). But yeah, I'll ask tonight how much i can blab about. Then I'll return to this topic and spill the beans (provided i am given beans to spill)(man surprises scare me).


:o Feel the Sega love people~



... i guess this makes up for the Mario and Sonic incident >_>

I second that request for the PS2 version of NiGHTS to see a UK and US release, though I wonder what else they may have planned for us?

Aww, that's really cool, and it's very nice to hear that they care about their fanbase.

Heh, this game really yanks me around. It's a rollercoaster of excitement and horror. One moment I'm all, $EGAAAAA! :angry: , and then I find out about spiffy things that are going into the game, and I feel all "YAY AWESOME" :lol:

  • Interests:I love well-made fanart, drawings and well-written fanfics. I adore people who can be creative in a beautiful way (good artists, writers, singers etc). I like various anime shows, mostly shoujo and maho-shoujo. I also like reading books of fantasy-writers (Andre Norton, Phillip Pullman, Gart Nix etc). I like listening to rock or folk-rock music. I also love various pretty shiny things. I myself write and draw various fan things from time to time. And yes, I also love sleeping, dreaming and being lazy.
I'm so happy for you, TRiPPY!
That's why I love you so much, all the fanbase in the whole and every person in particular - you are so wonderful you can make them LISTEN to you, and actually reply back!

but gaaaahhh... can't help thinking about U.V.... don't know why, just can't help thinking about him!

This..... really makes me happy.
Like, not just superficial ZOMG-fangirl-squee happy, but like... restored-faith-in-the-goodness-of-humanity happy. Serious.

Even if this "surprise" they're talking about doesn't end up being anything all that great, just the fact that they know we're here at all and are listening and paying attention to us on a personal level just... makes me want to run outside and hug a tree or something.

I love being a part of this fanbase. <3

Its nice to hear, but its more news of 'I am learning about some really cool stuff. Sorry I can't tell you though.' It gets my hopes up but then come crashing down when I realise I can't hear about any of this information until the game comes out or something. Ah well. Nice to know you are feeling happy.

It will make me feel better if you hear news and are able to tell us 'Its good! You will be pleased. There is nothing to cry about.' That will at least comfort me a little. However, what you like and what I like are kinda different sometimes....so I am still left in the dark.

I will sit back and wait patiently now. Hopefully this won't turn out like a certain topic we had many many weeks ago. This time I will not contribute to the damage.

Lol, when we got the first email out of the blue i honestly thought i was about to be grilled for something or another. XD;;

But, yes. I'm hoping this leads us to bigger and better things. Judging by the sounds of the emails we've been sent recently, Sega have quite a few things in store....at least they say they do. Me and TRiP have no idea what it is this time.

Actually.. the "we havn't forgotten you" line is probably them reminding me that i'm still on their 'Most Wanted' list. *whistles to himself and walks away*

But, in all seriousness, i'm really glad Sega are actually contacting us. I spent ages complaining about other game companies being in-touch with their fans and i wondered why Sega wasn't doing this. But now they have and i'm happy. They mentioned that they appreciated the work we do here at our website and that they have plans for us. As i said, let's hope it something reaaaaal good. ^___^

Yes, I hope it's actually something worth while and not just pretend. You can't blame NiGHTS fans for being a little rude to niceness after all the crap we've been through over the years.

I agree with you. This fanbase has been through a lot over the last decade. I actually thought this was all part of some elaborate prank, at first. I really did. I never imagined Sega would actually sit up and take notice of us. But they are and i really think that if this is the case then we can expect some good things from Sega now. True, don't get your hopes up too high...just be happy in the fact that they know we're here and they can see us. Let's hope it pays off. :)

Ooooh! Very intriguing indeed....*shifty eyes* RUN DIGI! DEY 'COMMIN TA GET YA!! lol, but in seriousnessness...ness...I'm really excited about this even though I'm not part of the awesomeness to come to you two. And honestly I din't give a damn about if this suspense is worth it, I'm just glad to know that Sega's acknowledging that we (most of us still) exist as fans. That and they see what we want, hate, are happy about and wish to never be hinted in this new game. I'm very happy to know that we are somewhat let out of the dark....or at least you two WILL be hopefully...

Trust me, as soon as i A- find out what theyre planning for us and B- get the all clear to say stuff i will be up on this place faster than childline on Reala.

What i CAN say however is that something awesome is coming tommorow. I'll be able to report on it tommorow night provided it all goes smoothly and i recieve an email. *crosses fingers* Remember how i said we have someone in Sonicteam answering our questions? Someone who uh... knows what theyre talking about?

Someone like Takashi Iizuka perhaps?


DUN DUN DUN.


It's happening folks.

Actualy a piece of poopy true news is that we were actualy given the chance to go meet him tommorow in person in London, but we were only given 24 hours notice D: We had no way to get there on time. But Sega promise to make it up to us in the coming months. So i know it's still all good :)

So stay tuned XD (IM JUST AS CURIOUS AS YOU GUYS)

*dies from happy*

I'm...speechless. I can't even put on a scale just how awesome this really is. Sega just won over every ounce of loyalty and respect I've had for every other game company on earth. I can't remember the last time a game company took note and paid well-earned respect to its fan base, and in turn they just boosted my satisfaction as a customer and a gamer up to levels I can't even fathom. I'll probably go out tomorrow and buy a bunch of new Sega games I've been looking to get, but was previously waiting on.

Bravo, Sega. You've just earned yourself another diehard devotee.

Wow. I am so glad that they are recognizing our existence. Sega, your position as my second-favourite game company, much endangered by that business with the PS2, is now firmly back. I love to hear some fan-appreciation from a major game publisher. It is all too rare in this industry, fan service games like Brawl and Galaxy (best game ever) aside.

The only thing that is missing is Sega saying, "We are bringing all of the Japanese merchandise over to the States and Europe. All because of you, fans."

Wow. Just wow. Of all companies, I never would have thought that SEGA, even with such a brief message of reassurance, would invoke so much emotion in my nostalgic frosted heart. Even through all of these years of trail and error, SEGA finally decided to make a NiGHTS sequel and, on top of that, bother to leave us this message. Now who would have thought.

Kudos, SEGA. We are on a road to recovery here. Just be sure the game is good. That's all really.

Raa. You really can't keep the mouth hushed until it's time to spring the surprise, can you darling? If Iizuka doesn't answer any questions then that's another 'ooo secret surprise for the forum' ruined. You should have waited until we got a response first.

Let's hope he does answer them, though. It would be rather nice. :lol:

This is why I should comment on the thread as soon as I see it's posted in future. Everyone else stole my thoughts! D:

Lol, seriously though, this is great news, it's wonderful to hear that Sega does acknowledge, and most likely, thank the existence of such a large fanbase :)

Also, all this stuff you keep hinting at, Digi and Trip, must be trying to drill its way out of your head, determined to make itself known. Can't be that easy to bottle up so much information XD I don't envy you such a position lol.

But as we've all said, this fanbase has to be one of the most closely knit ones I've ever seen, linked by dreams, imagination, and a love of one beautiful, *counts* eleven or something (I forget :lol:) year old game. No other fanbase I have seen has become this close with just one game, and it's just amazing.

It's so wonderful that Sega knows of the family of a fanbase that has kept NiGHTS alive for so long :)

Great job Trippy, Digi and the entire fanbase! Looks as though loyalty does pay off in the end! :3 *squee*
