TOWERS.

Right, well, (you'll see my point in a second) both NiD and JoD have towers in them. The original TwinSeeds tower looked like it was based highly from the Chrysler NYC building. Bellbridge tower looks like it was influenced off Big Ben.

I'm a geek so i notice stuff like this but, my city Edinburgh has a big clock tower too in the city center. We dubbed it 'little ben'. I was wondering what you guys think because Bellbridge tower looks like a mix of Big Ben and Edinburgh's clocktower. Dundundun. No really. Take the top off it and shove it on Big Ben. Maybe they mixed various UK landmarks to create the NiGHTS fictional one?

I can just imagine NiGHTS standing on those towers just like in the FMVs. I wonder why he only visits places with big towers anyway. It's no wonder TRiPPY met NiGHTS.

Aww if only NiGHTS would visit places with smaller towers...I guess a place like a university's too small for him :wub:

Do you think they changed the Tower to a clock tower in JoD because of 9/11?

I doubt it, since 1. Bellbridge and Twin Seeds are different cities and 2. the Twin Seeds Tower looked nothing like the World Trade Center.

Can't say the main Norwich clock tower looks much like it :lol:

Though one of the ancient churches here has a huge one that looks like a mix between the Edi one and the London one... only green. I must take pictures, or find out what the church is called.

It's not either of our cathedrals, but have a nice picture of one, the tower is lovely. I believe this is the younger of the two (and much younger than most of our churches)

Posted Image

And here's a terrible one of our skyline, in which you can see the one I'm referring to, but it's stupidly blury. All the tall buildings are ancient churches/castles :P

Edit:

Have a better one. It's spectacular at night.

Its where Roy Chubby Brown became famous by making jokes about womens bits ¬_¬

NOTE - Its surrounded by rough bars, a royal court and the North Easts largest call centre.

wonderful Middlesbrough, if NiGHTS stopped here i'm sure he would be hassled by some chavvs.

I can't find anything but I can say that the clock tower here in Baltimore City sucks terribly. It's just ugly and the time is never right at least not right to our city anyways. Here's a pic of the lameness:

Oh and what a lovely place to put it:

Posted Image

with all that being said I would have to say the closest clock tower to the JoD one would have to be Edinburgh's clock tower.

There's this rather small clock monument/tower in my town that, upon first glance, caught my eye as being very similar, so I took a photo. Upon further inspection, the similarities are scarce, but still :

YEAH! Its the closest kind of tower I know of from where I live.

No really. I couldn't take an actual picture since she left for Winter break, but this duck sits in one of my friends rooms at school.

Geez you guys live in some really nice places. I could take pictures of old southern churches and their towers...but thats about it. I miss the north. ;-;

Aw MAN! I live near a sweet-looking tower but my computer is so old and crappy that I can't get the pic up. The tower is like, awesome. Argh! *tears out hair waiting for better computer to fall from the sky*

Jung...fine. Just don't show me that Freud one ever again. Blargh! I can't stand him. You try reading Civilizations and it's Discontents and see how far you get before you want to throw the book across the room and say BS. But that is probably just me. I never seem to agree with a lot of psychologist and philosophers.

the 'guys wanna have sex with their mom' stuff still creeps me out X-O. And I did a report on the Collective Unconscious and explained it in laymen terms. xD!

Think of how much polygon rendering time they'd save! And then for the dramatic final battle, they could skewer Wizeman on it.

Seriously though. One of the lamest sculptures ever.

As it is currently Winter it means hibernating in house rather than going out a lot. <br /><br /> I should also mention that growing up playing on SEGa systems it is now my favorite game company in the whole world. The games developed by it always inspire me a lot and remind me of all those games many years ago such as Nights that I have many fond memories of. <br /><br />I also am really creative and tend to do all kinds of art such as drawings,painting and such. However, lately I have focused more on my computing course so have not done much. :)
I remember taking a photo of the clock tower in King's Cross on the day I got Journey of Dreams. :D

What a journey that was...

At least to me it reminded me straight away of the one in the game hence why it was in the picture. :P

It doesn't look very similar, but this is the most noticeable clock tower in my city -

Posted Image

It's on the record books as the biggest four-faced clock in the world. It always kind of gave me the creeps because at night it looks like a giant eye looking out over a big old fortress. Dad works there, he says it needs to be a fortress because of the neighborhood it's in. People will try to walk in and steal anything they can get their hands on, especially computers.
