So, how did you get into NiGHTS?
Posted 30 April 2007 - 10:05 PM
I've been around forever, hehehe. At the beginning of time, I got the saturn, yay (this was of course, after my genesis.) Best system of it's time. Unfortunately as it was, I had to share it with my brother . After a while, Mom came home one day and said she had a new game for us. It was the demo disc for Christmas NiGHTS. Wow O_O. I played for hour upon hours on end, frequently breaking into arguements that my brother wanted to play machine head (good game, btw). He'd make up excuses like "It's just a demo", or "It's girly!". I let all those comments go right by me, and continued to play. It was so much fun . I woud use level times to just fly around rather than proceed with the level. i knew all the secrets, play as reala on april fools day, play as sonic on christmas, I'd cheat, of course XD. The puffy based , santa suited robotnic was the best boss, but the only other fight was gillwing. Ok, after a few years, my brother sold the saturn. i was SO PiSSED. No, the lowercase "i" in pissed was a typo, i just left it . Back on topic, years went by, really slowly. The family split apart, this and that, NiGHTS was but a memory now. Ok, so about a year and a half ago, I moved to where I am now, Florida. I had a really hard time finding where I fit in, until finally, over a year later, I'm in a computer graphics class with iNSOMNiAC. She mentioned NiGHTS to me one day, something brought it up in conversation, and I'm like "... wait... NiGHTS?... You mean like... flighty dreamy NiGHTS?" and it went from there. I'd hang out with her at her house and play NiGHTS for the first time (the actual game, that is) with the 3d analog controller (also for the first time) and OH what a TRIP down MEMORY LANE THAT was. WOW! That was great! I later visited the site, and joined the forum when it came up, and all that mumbo jumbo. I can't wait for NiGHTS 2 >.< I didn't even know about it till she came along
omg, I rambled again. Oh, how I love the clackling sound the keyboard makes when you type a good paragraph

The inner sonic fan in me feels no remorse ahah.
THEN BEGAN THE ONSLAUGHT D:<
*bites Dan* Hey you seen it in STC? I had my NiGHTS art printed in there. Me and KiaraNeko here were the only 2 folk to ever draw NiGHTS in its run.

And one day, after totally begging my mom to tears to get the game, I went on eBay, saw a Sega Saturn and the game for sale and bought both. I got the game first, so for about a good week I was staring at it wondering how my experience with the game would be. And then the Saturn came and I played it that day at my grandma's daycare. I didn't really get into the game at first because everytime I shut it off, I had to start all over because I didn't have a saving cartridge. But then one day I finally got to the last level on Claris' side and I was just hit with realization. Like everything I should have seen before just hit me in that last level through the music, the scenery, everything.
And ever since I've been a proud NiD fan.

Fast-forward to twelve years from then, when that same Sega Saturn is god knows where, and I have discovered the internet. ON day on DA, someone by the name of Jofinin (jof jof jof jof) had a link in their journal to this site, and here I am now, a complete NiGHTS newbie, but I hope to learn, and get to play NiD before JoD comes out.

I bought the game.
I liked said game!
There was nothing magical or tragic about that story!

The NiGHTS Into Dreams players guide. (Prima or Brady, can't remember, too lazy to look right now XD)
I found it while browsing through other game guides at my local Babbage's and saw the title, got REALLY curious, and pulled it out and looked at it. I ended up falling in love right there. NiGHTS just jumped out at me, as did the story and other information within. I bought the book right then and there (twas the end of '97), but I didn't get the game until I finished 8th grade in '98. I already owned a Saturn, and my parents bought me the game as a reward for achieving straight A's for the first (and last) time.
I've been flying high ever since. ^_^

...I love...Astal... so much. <3
The first time I saw NiGHTS was in an advertisement in a GanGan (or KoroKoro?) manga book in Japan. The look and style really caught my attention of how it reminded me of Astal. So when I went back to the states I made sure to buy it when I had the chance.... Stupid as I was back then, I found out the USA version couldn't play on my white sega saturn. ;_; So I had to return it and wait for my grandparents to send me a Japanese version in Christmas. EVENTULLY I got it, played it, and forever loved it. :3

After hearing many things about the new game and seeing the commercial, I was worried that the 3-D controller was required to play the game. Me and my family were going to buy a copy of the game that came with the 3-D controller, but when we first played the game in stores, I've learned that you could also play the game with a regular Saturn controller. So we ended up buying a copy of the game itself, no 3-D controller included. Once I got the game, me, my younger brother, and my older cousin were addicted to it.

When the saturn first came out i was eager to have it. Got it on christmas, my parents didn't buy me a game starting off, so i only was able to play the demo disk......... that demo was NiGHTS. I was curious about it, then i played it for the first time....i was in awe of the graphics and the beautiful music. Then came the game play, it was too addictive for words spending hours on the demo alone. Even when i wasn't playing it, I listen to the music tracks on the demo before i went to sleep at night."no joke" Since then I've been a less obssesed more avid fan of NiGHTS, then i went to trippy's earlier websites.....and it was like throwing napalm on a campfire. Needless to say I've been a fan of NiGHTS from the start.
