We've all seen the trailer by now and i keep looking at the boss stage in the gameplay footage; i keep thinking of a giant pinball table but i kinda know that it's not. My idea to defeat this boss is that ur supposed to get it to the top of the structure and throw the clown Maren into the jaws at the top. It's weird, no?

Anyone any thoughts on the stage?

Am i in the right place?

Yar, seems that way from the trailer... The stage does look nice, but I'm kind of annoyed at how they basically redid the Puffy battle, but bigger... hell, this Puffle/Fuckle even looks like Puffy! XD
The big set of jaws at the top are frickin' sweet looking though. I mean, sweet Jesus does that looks awesome. Also, I'm diggin' that the door that Fuckle comes out of is shaped like a cloak wearing Reala... must draw badass Reala art now...

I hope that the way you defeat the maren doesn't have to do with it making contact with those awfully sharp teeth-spikes in the mouth of that... THING.

..."pop" goes the Phuckle~

I'm thinking you have to bounce 'Fuckle' to the top and have him/her hit those Spikey Teeth...

LOL That would be so funny if Phuckle popped and they played "pop goes the weasel". XD As for the level it is reminiscent of a pinball machine. It also looked like the ground will tilt around. Might be wrong about that though. They really ripped of Puffy, having Phuckle bust through the walls and such, not to mention the obvious similarities in appearance. One thing I like is the doorway with the teeth. It gives the battle a much more ominous and dramatic feel.

I really like the boss and stage. It has a very detailed theme of a common nightmare that we can all relate to. Phuckle may represent the fear of lost progress, the feeling that what you've strived for has been undone. You are supposed to force Phuckle to the top but he is continuosly lowering itself and blocking motion with obstacles. I also like the immense amount of breaking that occurs in the stage.

You realize it's going to be hard to call Phuckle by his real name once it's released. XD

XD Yeah :3.

We should just tell SEGA to name him 'Fuckle' instead XD.

I can see it already...

Random little kid: *phails at level* Curse you, Fuckle!

*LATER*

Mom: What's the matter? You've been sad all day!
RLK: I just can't beat Fuckle! Fuckle keeps on... being Fuckle! Grr... I can't beat him.
Mom: *gasp*

*wall falls down to reveal that stupid crowd that's always in those Verizon wireless commercials*

Crowd: *gasp*

(You may not get this if you live in the U.K., because Verizon Communications is an American broadband/telecommunications company. :S)

I dare say that Sega would get a lot of backlash if they named it Fuckle.
Nobody would dare make a strategy guide for that game. It would also be bad for merchandising. Imagine "To defeat the first boss, you must force Fuckle to the top off the stage while avoiding obstacles" The bold part would be quoted and the strategy guide maker would never live it down. Imagine if they decided to give out Fuckle dolls as a promotional item. The guy at your Gamestop would be forced to say "Preorder NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams and get a free Fuckle doll". Don't get me wrong, that would cause a lot of pre-orders for JoD, but Gamestop would become the game store equivalent of Hooters when they lost younger customers.

I know. But, none of the less, I'm still gonna call him/her 'Fuckle', even after the game comes out XD.

@Gun6.: XDD I think that's exactly what would happen should the name 'Fuckle' be chosen :3.

I'm sticking to Puffle until we're given an official title. It's a Puffy/Jackle hybrid after all.

If I still worked at GameStop.... I'd say it just to spite the uppity mothers XD muhahahaha...

Oh Fuckle.. once they release your real name... we'll probably still call you Fuckle X3.

When I first saw the trailer I thought that HUGE thing they were showing was a really big over dramatic throne XD LoL. But then as it kept going lower and lower I thought it WAS the boss and they were pulling a "Shadow of the Colossus: on us XD. Then I see tiny ass Fuckle come thru the doorway like "What's up?! =oD" I was like o.O .... no Fuckle, that's too awesome for you XD.

As for the Puffy rip off part, you guys forgot to mention that the bounce sound effect they used was the very same XD

Aww... I like him.... to some degree. I gotta admit, only to some degree << >>....

Random Marens need MORE LOVE *glomps*!

Puffle and Fuckle are gonna stick with me now x3.

Just so you guys know, I generally write it as Phuckle. I wrote it as Fuckle before just for the sake of making my point. Oh and to Katkitoshi. You would go up to random mothers and say "preorder JoD and get a free Fuckle for your kid" right? Yep, I made a new and improved version just for you.

I do like Puffle to a degree as well. While it's nothing new, and dangit, we want new, a little nostalgic part of me is all warm and fuzzy! :3 Puffy was, and still is, one of my fave bosses, so it feels good to have some familiar ground.

But I'm all for new-ness too! Waaah, I'm such a wishy-washy fool. XD

As for marketing this particular boss' nickname... *gigglesnort* We'd suffer and die from the whiplash reaction of parents worldwide!

Um. Backlash, not whiplash. I only hope the JoD team aren't getting any ideas from this thread. When we hear the actual name, we'll be like "it's okay, but I like Ph(F)uckle better" because we're so used to it. If some people on this board have kids though, we may have to reconsider. I wonder what Jacko would say if he saw this.

^^; Right, backlash! Thanks Tango, LOL. (I took an English course at college, really!)

I guess we should take care if one of our fellow fanpersons is a young one. After all, upon JOD's release, we'll have a whole new generation of fans with us! And if Jack found out about this? Ugh, I shudder to think... XD

LoL oh god if Jack Thompson started bashing NiGHTS for ANY reason, forget "Fuckle" I'd laugh.. and laugh hard.. what can he say?

"This game is showing our children what being high on them drugs looks like!!"

I like what the blurb in one of the game informers where in the JoD artucle it said: "We were probably watching too much Sailor Moon during the mid 90's" LoL XD I luff that

Theory #1
Jacko: your honor, I have found evidence that a video game community has forced highly disturbing language upon each other. *rolls clip* *Jury gasps*
Defense: My client had every right to use this language. Furthermore, Mr. Jack Thompson has no proof that this behavior is a result of Video Games.
Judge: not guilty

Theory #2
Jacko: Your honor, the defendant has been running an online cult that is using explicit innuendo in many of it's topics.
*rolls clips* *jury is not surprised and or still miffed about getting jury duty*
*Judge kicks Jacko where the sun don't shine*
Judge: Court ajourned

Puffle, i think, is a suitable Nightmaren; some people are scared of clowns. I prefer the name Puffle, to be honest, cause "Fuckle" will get me into trouble with my parents :)

Anyway.. I've been doing some thinking, and this is based on Claris and Elliot from the original NiD with each their own set of bosses. That boss there could be William's, and it represents the sport that he likes (being soccer/futbol').

Yeah, it looks like a football level. I thought the same thing- especially because he has to be sent into a "goal" at the other end of the level.
