You didn't actually say what time. Also, would someone mind giving it in GMT aswell, cause I have no idea what the different US times mean in relation to us.

Midnight for the trailer apparently. Obviously not GMT, seeing as IGN is an American site, so take your pick from one of their many
time zones.

Excellent. Even Matty C says it's looking good and he's the one who posted on his blog with that "Zee goggles, they do nothing" quote accompanying an early, blown up screenshot of the game. I greatly look forward to seeing the trailer tonight, especially on such a slow news month (so far). Here's hoping it impresses.

SQUEE. I hope there's at least one new tidbit for us to shriek over! 8D Unfortunately, IGN chose the one night I'm dead tired and have to turn in early for work... dagnabbit!!

And oh look, they've got the link all set already! "Midnight tonight"! They love making us wait and writhe in anticipation... ;____;

Hope it's a treat to wake up to! Oyasumi na everyone! :3 *dreams about the trailer*

Hey, hi, I'm here, just moments before the trailer. I just woke up at 2:50 AM (How lucky) so I guess there was a good reason one of Wizeman's clocks got me after all. I'ma go check IGN now.

EDIT: Arg, just my luck! IGN just now uploaded the trailer but I can't see it for some reason. Can anyone please YouTube it?

Oh, yeah. This keeps getting better and better.

NiGHTS has never looked so good, with or without AMVs. And the kids look so much better in motion. You know, when they're actually emoting? Looked great to me.

The new boss is sufficiently scary and Reala! I never thought I'd be so excited to see the anti-jester. Great design work on him. And if someone could get a screengrab, you'll notice that Wizeman is clearly in the background. Not some red curtain gate thing, mind you, but Wizeman! With his multiple hands!

It was great to see so many different camera angles -- I just hope the game can segue from one to another without any trouble. Also, I'm getting a bit worried that we're seeing too much of that Gorramn bird. Is the whole game going to be a series of wild (flying) goose chases, I wonder?

All told, I'm very excited about what I'm seeing. And now I shall go to bed, undoubtedly with sweet dreams.

Midnight is 8am GMT isn't it? -checks clock- Oooh! I'll have to wait to post this then =p

-counts down-

OMG I so thought this was going to be them just -thinking- they would get one or lying or... or... some sort of misunderstanding but eeee! The shot with NiGHTS over the water! Bits from the kids openings! Pretty! =D =D =D This has made my morning. And day. And life.

Was that fish kind of like Gulpo and Gillwing a bit, or am I insane?

OHGOD I JUST SAW REALA HAHA. That made me scream. XD Niiiice design. I like him more now.

Also that bi of NiGHTS running and jumping near the end is <3

Gah have to go to school now but so glad I thought to check the site right now XD

Whoa, hold the phone.

At about 2:30 where Helen in walking with her friends eating icecream, is that not Claris with her? Or at least a scary lookalike?

Hmm, in regards to the 'world hub' they plan on using for the levels, I like how they symbolise each of the worlds with a little stained glass window. Very schmick (this is just before our very massive and impressive desert level, fyi).

Also, it seems that Reala has decked himself out in some serious Wizeman pimping attire (the designs on his armour kind of look like hands...somewhat creepy). And OH YEAH, it's Wizeman in the background!

PS: Quick note, NiGHTS' big fouffy eyelashes of doom are here to stay (especially when compared to this, which is relatively the same angle).

Oh wow the trailer looks so beautiful. Besides the fact Reala has PPG eyes, lacking of green fingers, and looking more naked :D *bricked* it's not all that bad. I'm really hoping that fish is Gulpo's new design because it's a really good fishy design~

Edit: The way NiGHTS fights that puffy thing really is like Puffy. Huh. :E

Everything seemed okay... until the platform levels came into view. I'm really hoping they aren't tedious because they don't seem all that interesting. Also the boss around 2:04 feels like the mood from Twilight Princess which is a good thing in my eyes. Reala looked like he was on his way to shake up things and make a huge scene. I really do want to play this now.

It doesn't really matter. You can sign up for an account but they still want your money so you can't download anything... legally that is.

Instead of Studying for my test I woke up to do at 5:30 in the morning...I am sitting here watching this video. ^o^ I find it funny I had to watch something about Tom and Jerry though before I watched it...

That was wonderful. However, does anyone get the feeling of KH when Will opens the door? I also can't stop thinking about Tidius everytime I see Will now. The video for some reason makes him seem even more like Tidius too with the expressions. (He even has fauther problems like Tidus too...)

I love the gameplay footage they showed. Nice to see another boss besides Phuckle now. However...is another fish! I wonder if each boss has something slightly to do with all the bosses of the old game.

OMG Reala....HAHAHAHAHAH! God you look worse than I thought. I can barly even see your face and...HA! And dude...it looks like he has a gun belt or whatever on. lol Oh Reala you poor thing....HA!

I didn't even think about how Will looked similar to Tidus but I did think he looked a little Asian with the slightly slanted eyes and such.

And yes, Reala does look... you be the judge of that :)

The Good

- The CGI looks quite pretty.
- The music is good, if a little Disneyish.
- The fish boss looks interesting to fight and significantly better visually than the rest if the gameplay.

The Bad

- The new Reala design is terrible as expected, but no on could have predicted that, jesus.
- It's still a visually unimpressive game, the water level as Helen looks N64 at best (well the bit with the chest)
- The kids gameplay looks bad.

I'll be back in 5 hours then. lol No just kidding. Thats how long it would take me.

Also, about it looking like N64 graphics...no. I would say at least gamecube. Characters on the N64 were a lot more jagged then that of what we are seeing. Plus the background was a lot less detailed. But thats just me. I don't really care because its a hell of a lot better looking than what we saw on the Saturn, and especially better than anything I could ever do. So I give two craps about the graphics. I think there fine. Thank you....

Similar note to what was said earlier. Despite the 640x480 version of the WMV saying only subscribers could get it, the download started after a few clicks. I'm using firefox btw, might have something to do with it. Anyway, it's now downloaded, so i'll go watch without stutter vision now.

EDIT: Hmm, mixed feelings. Whilst it's lovely to see the FMVs that look so nice (compared to the loooooooow res originals), I'm rather concerned with the gameplay. The bosses shown looked great as mentioned, but the parts playing as the kids look gash quite frankly, and the proper NiGHTS gameplay just looks lacking. The original game was about speed, scores, links, collecting all the nightopians, generally being better at it and replaying over and over to beat your last scores. This to me looks more like you'd play through and maybe go back to it occassionally, but not in the same way.

I think my main gripe is that the levels looks too empty and drawn out. I've yet to see a section where getting through the link rings looks particularly challenging, and that you'd need to learn the route because it all looks so obvious - partially I suppose because of the viewing angle; you can always see what's ahead.

I pray i'm proven wrong but this has seriously put me off :) Ah well, least I won't have to buy a Wii. Why can't Sega realise that the classic franchises are classic for a reason - they were about fun speed and replayability. They killed Sonic in my eyes as soon as he entered the third dimension (Sonic Rush excluded, but that's basically a 2D, push right for the win! bit of awesome, once you ignore Tails voice and rename 'him' Dr. Robotnik in your head - seriously, Eggman? sod off!) and added sh!t characters with guns and cars and whilst the new NiGHTS thankfully isn't going down that path, they still seem to have lost their way.

/rant



EDIT 2: On a plus point, the music :) I love that it is very Disney in style. It reminds me of everything magical in a world that seems less and less so each year. Whilst I can enjoy space marines, explosions and fast cars as much as the next gamer, there is nothing quite like rekindling those feelings you had as a child that the fantastical could happen.

Oh dang <3

Everything looks absolutely incredible. NiGHTS has more style than ever (tough to pull off, but so darned elegant!). Reala's awesome. Gulpo's been hitting those steroids, it seems. And those levels look wonderful.

GAH. *keeps watching*
