*stares at the trailer* Woooow......

After reading everything ya'll had to say, I can't really add much to it. ^^;; I WILL, however, point out a little something that no one has said anything about yet:

Did anyone take a good look at the designs on Reala's armor? They're emblems of Wizeman's hands. The gauntlets and chest armor are the best view in this short clip.

A few thoughts: Since the story is very parent-child relationship centric, I can't help but wonder how NiGHTS and Reala are going to add to that. NiGHTS, the one who broke away and flew free, and Reala, the one who remained loyal and is yet chained (possibly). I'm suspicious of the mask Reala's wearing (looking forward to seeing what role THAT plays in the plot).

Anyway, I believe I'm going to love this game. I love how NiGHTS is being portrayed so far, and I especially love the intense interest he's taking in Helen and Will. He seems to be genuinely curious about and fond of them. I like Reala's redesign, it looks a lot more action ready, like we can expect a really good knock-down-drag-out battle between the the two maren later. >=) The only complaint I have at the moment is the gameplay graphics. They could really use some tweaking before they'll look great. And I wouldn't call the levels "barren," I'd call them "open." I'm actually excited about going crazy and exploring every nook and cranny of those places. I love huge open game levels. (*Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles flashbacks* 8D)


More later as I manage to translate my feelings into words, though right now JOYGASM fits best. XD

Completely random thought: I'd much rather be a level designer for NiGHTS than a level designer for Sonic. Both game franchises have beautiful scenery that need painstaking attention to detail. The levels for both game franchises take a lot of time, energy and money to design, draw, render and polish just right.

The difference is that with Sonic, you never see any of it. It must make the developers cry to put so much work into the backdrops knowing that the players are going to blur by so quickly, they'll never notice.

NiGHTS, on the other hand, goes at just the right speed. Fast enough so it doesn't get boring, but slow enough for the player to take in every detail of the beautiful worlds crafted by Sonic Team.

Wizeman: We meet again...NiGHTS.

Oh, the curtain. May be slightly symbolic of Wizeman, but we have a vague idea of what he looks like now thanks to the new trailer. He's looming behind Reala. =3 He looks the same, from what I can see from the shadow. Though it appears he has some sort of halo now. :lol:
0


Yeah, that is the thing. Its not quite Reala (which people guessed from the head) and its not quite Wizeman (which people guessed from the drape attached to the head. It could quite easily be symbolic of a Jackle remake. I mean, he has the 2 horns and the cape. The horns were not that style in the old school NiGHTS, but that does not mean it isn't him.

Of course it could just be a curtain with a decorative top. But for now I will stick to the "we will see some variation of Jackle," theory.

Has anyone else noticed that the NiGHTS Journey of Dreams page on IGN also has new screenshots with 2 BIG IMAGES OF THE ALPS LEVEL? It looks great! VERY much like Spring Valley. And I disagree about Curiosity Inc.'s idea of no one seeing the scenery in Sonic games. I love just stopping in the middle of a level and admiring details put into the games' the levels. But NiGHTS is a deserving game, more so than Sonic, to have spectators for the environments.

Yes, I too took time to walk around and admire the view, ahh... smell those dandelions. Could stare for hours at the hot air fumes coming from the shower in the casino. It's not inside a level, but, you get the idea. Also, with JoD now, is it not still so that you walk around with the kids in that same level? Or has that changed?

I agree with you.

Everything is too fast with Sonic; The average gamer will never stop to look at the scenery. However, with NiGHTS, everything is taken in, because it is not at a fast pace, and the environment is usually in a tad bit more action...

Maybe Reala's mask is like Michael Jacksons kid being made to wear one; after all, Wizeman does like to lure the little children in their beds.

Think about it :D :D :( :(

Redesign of Jackle(or something look like)

In both games, girl wants to have a music, boy wants ato have asport career. In this game, there is more strategy and family.

I think it's all but certain that all the original bosses are back, just revamped with new strategies.

And to be honest, it makes sense when you think of it. Only NiGHTS and Reala are 1st level Nightmarens, so for now can we assume that no-matter what Dreamer sees them, they keep the same appearence ?

Now, in the original, it was said that Puffy was a representation of Elliot's mother or such like.

How abouts, that since this game features new Dreamers, the original Nightmaren are still present, but change on appearence depending on who is seeing them. Their basic form remains intact, but is altered slightly by the Dreamers inner thoughts ?

Oh. And that music. FT-f*!*ing-W. I'm glad they kept Dreams Dreams, and got rid of the original singers. The original sounded like Japanese people trying to sing English. At least this sounds reasonably good : P.

I see. So they are the same characters only seen from a different dreamer's perspective? Each nightmaren represents a psychological problem that lurks within the dreamer's subconscious, right? So while it's the same problems being personified, it's the personification that makes it different. That's why it was necessary for Wizeman to have created a similar but different nightmaren from Puffy. Puffy and the new balloon clown, while similar, represent something different. If Puffy represents materialism, what does the clown represent?

Maybe we should save it for another topic.

Did anyone else think the music box-like tune at the beginning sounded familiar? I swear I've heard that tune before, but I just can't remember where. XP I KNOW I've heard it, cause I can hear it in my head with different instruments. Dangit where'd it come from?! I'm gonna do a websearch now...
