Go to "Behind the Story". Now, I know people do emulations, to varying degrees of success.. but here they're saying there's also gonna be a full blown PC version of NiD. News to me..

While we're on the subject, their JoD review- http://www.gametap.c...ad/article/2553

Yea, I was a bit confused about that too. Sega seems to not know whats going on anymore...
I also hate how in the MAKING OF NiGHTS video they keep calling Reala "Wizeman." Anyone else notice that?
It's a bit amusing actually.

Seriously, I almost started crying (which is about the reaction I had when my grandfather died... I still subconsciously expect him to pop up and say 'look what I found at the flea market!', so I'm not really sure if I've truly reacted to that yet... ^^; *hopes nobody finds that freakishly bizzare and insensitive* ) and if this does happen, I am going to be the happiest little kitty on the face of the planet!!! ..... *shoves her hope in a suffocating little bag so she doesn't get severely disappointed if it doesn't*

Very... odd (yet cool) move by SEGA.

GameTap emulates the Saturn Games... if I figure correctly, so I don't think they'll be making a new one. However, even this in itself is good news. So much for the "It's too hard to emulate" bullshit Sega's been spouting for years >_>

Playing the game with a keyboard is like stepping on kittens though.

As far as I can tell, you can map controllers to Gametap, and it works pretty fine, so analogue is good news.

Writing, drawing, art in any way, shape, or form, hard rock music, dancing wildly even though I can't dance for crap. I write poetry and lyrics (although they're not very good T__T) and comedy movies. I love the Dreamcast podcast that DiGi and TRiPPY put on. I also enjoy thinking outside the box. I'm what is known as a Meathead. I can laugh at myself, think outside the box, and smile. Meatheads are smarter than your average Joe, with much more common sense and the rare ability to find creative solutions to problems. My idol is a man named Jimmy Dolittle. Look him up ^.~

I noticed that! Every time they mentioned Wizeman they showed Reala! I was like "No! You idiots! That's Reala! Wizeman's the spiky guy with the multiple hands!"

i've played the game with keyboard and loved it o_o even Jackle's boss battle was really easy.

I really wish they are making a pc version or emulate, since we're not having the ps2 remake.

It seems they've taken the section down. Oh well. I hope they put it on the free games list first so all can play it and then have it set up for those who have a gold membership. I don't have a gold membership and emulators just don't cut it anymore.

I just hope that they make more Saturn games on Gametap Mac compatible. My PC is not powerful enough to emulate the games well, but my mac is not compatible with any of the good Saturn games, even if it is uber-powerful.

This is very cool. One game that would make me sign up to gametap. Online scoreboards? Cassini style smoothing of graphics?

Sorry to bump up really old topics but I remembered that NiGHTS was going to be put on GTap this year. Well it's 2008 and nothing. Anyone know what happened?

Maybe when they took it down was when they got a cease and desist letter, but that'd only happen if they put that information up without asking permission to emulate it. I hope that's not the case and they're just encountering other issues/are waiting for something. ;-; *wants to play NiD*

i doubt that,because gametap is company,and they do have sega games on their website already,including saturn games,and sega knows about this because their the ones who let the secret out about the game being emulated on gametap! *well,i think*
