In Topic: New to NiGHTS

Welcome, Sundial! I hope you have fun reading and writing in the NiGHTS Community Forums. :) It will be good for you newcomers to get in touch with other NiGHTS fans who can understand your new-found love of our favorite flying purple jester.

But I brave'd up, played JoD, and had this really stupid gleeful look on my face for an entire day. Apparently happiness (or crack) comes in the shape of purple dream jesters too! I'm not sure what's drawing me to the game, I guess it's just so unique and colorful and fun. The thought of a dream world is fun to think about too, but it makes me wonder just how messed up my Nightopias would look like..


Yeah , I would have a stupid smile on my face too after playing NiGHTS JoD. Sometimes I wouldn't realize it :lol: . Even if I play this game for a little while it can brighten up my whole day as well. Playing this game does something good for us: the vibrant colors of the Nightopias cheer us up and can help us forget bad things. We make NiGHTS fly and if we are captivated by the game long enough, we are IN that world and we ARE NiGHTS, set free and flying. ;)

Actually, I am not a big Legend of Zelda fan, but I AM curious about that Demon Lord Ghirahim fellow. He is the new villain. In fact, he is the character that got me interested in wanting to play LoZ: Skyward Sword. I would like to play the game to find out what else makes him creepy. But the game as a whole may be another epic video game story that I gotta check out and try for myself.

The gameplay looks fun based on some of the trailers I've seen so far for Skyward Sword. It just might be the one and only LoZ video game that I may play. I won't be getting it very soon after it's release, but maybe rent it, and then buy it later. I dunno, I think it might be fun. I wouldn't know what other LoZ video game to play at this point anyway.

But, yeah......looking forward to Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword :D

In Topic: Dream Journals

03 November 2011 - 09:57 AM

I used to keep a dream journal when I was in middle school. I would get back to writing in it on and off. I wrote down dreams that I wanted to remember, and very few dreams that I didn't want to remember (such as frightening nightmares). I rarely wrote down dreams that I didn't want to remember for fear of having the same dream again if I remember it.

I don't exactly keep a separate dream journal anymore, but I have another journal that I write in that I write dreams inside every once in a while. Usually I'd have vivid dreams during a nap rather than nighttime dreaming, so I'd write them down in the middle of the day. Sometimes I write about a video game-related dream on my Blogger video game blog. I don't share all my vide game-related dreams though <_<

Keeping a record of dreams does help with learning what kind of motifs or themes reoccur in your dreams and what issues the unconscious is trying to show you, or things you are worried about. Personally I am not going to pressure myself every morning to write in a dream journal right after waking up, but the vivid ones are definitely worth the time spent writing. As long as the dream is written down somewhere, even if not all at the same place or same notebook, it wll be worth it if you want to read back what you wrote. :) It also helps to write down the date and time as well as the day of the week because it can help you remember what you were going through or what mood you were in around the time you had the dream. That's what I would do, anyway.

If, however, I want to begin regularly write down my dreams in a dream journal notebook, I want to be ready if I wake up in the middle of the night. I should invest in a little LED "reading light" thingy to see where to write so that I don't have to get out of bed, turn on my light and blind myself the first two minutes of writing. And then be totally awake and forget some of the details just because I got out of bed. It would be best to keep the journal and pen under the pillow (or a side drawer if you have one next to your bed) so that if you stay in bed as you get your writing materials, your dreams' details may still be fresh in your memory. Stilll in bed, you may be able to retain your state of mind from the dream as you write it down, and I believe that would be the best-case scenario for any dream-writer.

I guess what I am also saying is for most people, a small light/lamp near the bed can make a difference in the willingness to write dreams down on paper. Or laptop, depending on how other people might liike to do it. But personally I prefer paper and pen (and a lap desk) because the handwriting can show how fast/nervously I wrote or how calmly I wrote depending on the dream and my emotion.

Okay, I wrote too much. I'l give you guys a break, ha hah hah. Maybe I'll write a part two on this later (Seriously I can write a book on this topic)... :P
