NiGHTS into Gameworks

22 October 2012 - 07:07 AM

There's a mall a couple of hours away from where I live. It's a big mall that we go to when we need something we're not likely to find in our rural area. This mall has a Gameworks arcade; as much as I love video games, I've never been all that interested in arcades, so I have only been in there a couple of times when some friends wanted to go. I haven't been in the arcade since I found out about NiGHTS (in fact, I haven't been in there in years). But yesterday, while I was at this mall with some friends of mine, they suggested we go spend some time at the arcade.

There was a great big mural on the wall to the left of the entrance, next to some stairs. I didn't actually notice it until one of my friends pointed it out to me, and it so happens that NiGHTS is on it! I wish I had a camera with me, but I didn't, so I took some pictures of NiGHTS (and with him... I just couldn't resist =P) with my cell phone. It's bad enough that they're cell phone pictures, but they're even lower quality because of the dim lighting in the arcade. Oh well... it was the best I could do at the time. Maybe I'll go back another time with a real camera and get a shot of the entire mural so you guys can see it. I tried to get a full shot with my cell phone but it didn't work. =/

Anyway, I just had to share this awesome NiGHTS sighting!
The painting is actually a bit bigger than it looks in the pictures; I'm much closer to the camera than NiGHTS, which makes him look a lot smaller than he actually was (I'm not actually touching the wall-- none of us could reach that far, unfortunately; I think there's still a good two feet or so between my hand and his).

EDIT-- I found a picture taken by a user named CodyMau on DeviantArt that shows more of the mural if you'd like to have a look:

Archie is Making a Sonic & Mega Man Crossover

11 July 2012 - 05:26 AM

Archie will apparently be making a Sonic and Mega Man crossover comic next year:


I have to say, I'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out. I'm not a frequent comic reader, so I'm not too familiar with Archie's work; I don't really know what to expect. I did read their NiGHTS comic, though, and... well... I hope this one turns out a little better than that at least. :P

But whether it turns out well or not, I think it's still a very interesting idea and I can't wait to see what they do with it. :)

Finally, I can play NiD!

05 July 2012 - 05:37 AM

I just finally got a Sega Saturn (saw one for a decent price, couldn't pass it up). So, naturally, I also bought NiGHTS Into Dreams.

I noticed that NiD is a bit more challenging than JoD, or at least it seems that way to me. For most of the levels, I'm still struggling to get C's. Guess I've got some practicing to do!

I'm also having some trouble getting decent scores on a few of the bosses, so I looked online for tips on improving my scores. I came across this guide at GameFAQs. When looking at information about the bosses in this guide, I saw this bit referring to the Clawz battle:

"There is a bug in NiGHTS where it never gives you the full 120 seconds you should, and they cut this boss so close, you can't get a 2.0. You usually get 117 seconds on the clock (okay, the final fight you do get 120 seconds)"

So now I'm curious...
Is it really impossible to score a 2.0 on Clawz? Or has anyone here managed to do it?

Project X Zone

12 April 2012 - 02:28 AM

This game looks like it might be interesting; a crossover game for the 3DS called Project X Zone, made by Sega, Capcom, and Namco Bandai. Sadly, no NiGHTS (not even Sonic for that matter) but the list of characters is still pretty long.

Quoted from Protodude's Rockman Corner:

the game is called Project X Zone (the 'X' is pronounced as "cross"). The game is a strategy RPG featuring characters from all three companies.
According to the magazine, characters will team up in pairs for fight scenes.

The included characters (from the same post at Protodude's Rockman Corner) are:

Ryu & Ken (Street Fighter Zero), X and Zero (Mega Man), Demitri and Dante (Darkstalkers and Devil May Cry), Chris and Jill (Resident Evil)

Shinguji Sakura and Ogami Ichiro (Sakura Wars), Pai and Akira (Virtua Fighter), Kurt and Riela (Valkyria Chronicles), Ulala and Touma (Space Channel 5 and Shining Force EXA)

Namco Bandai
Sanger Somvold (Super Robot Wars), Jin and Ling Xiaoyu (Tekken), Kos-Mos and T-elos (Xenosaga), Yuri and Estelle (Tales of Vesperia), Kite and Black Rose (.hack)

Several screenshots can be found here on Famitsu.com for those interested (and an English-translated version via Google Translate here).

Just thought I'd make a post about it in case anyone here might be interested in it, but hadn't heard about it yet. :)

Reala is Horrible

23 November 2011 - 11:08 AM

I was randomly inspired to make a music video for NiGHTS using the song "My Eyes (On the Rise)" from Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Do not ask me why, because I don't know.

I wanted to get it done before I lost interest in it, so it was very rushed (finished in one night) and I did not put as much effort into it as I probably should have. Still, thought I'd share. =)

Please note that this is not intended to be a Reala x NiGHTS video-- I have nothing against anyone who might like that pairing, but I just don't see it, so that is not what this video is meant to portray.
