NiGHTS is coming out tommorow! However, I have to wait 7 more days to see if I get it, it being the holiday season and all.

Awesome! I'm in the same boat as you however, and will have to wait a couple days as well.

By the way, I didn't get a chance to see the new NiGHTS commercial, what was it like?

I just got NiGHTS, and having played through the first dream I have to say my opinion is mixed.

Firstly, NiGHTS' voice frightens me, but I'm getting used to it, (he's a Girl!! eh )

Secondly, the gameplay remains the same, but the actual concept has changed a bit. Instead of breaking Ideya Captures, you're now breaking NiGHTS Captures. You start a level with NiGHTS being held in a Capture by Reala. You climb into the Capture and Dualize with NiGHTS. After that, you chase after three of these large Marens that you have to catch, for a reason that I forgot, and each maren is in one Mare, (lap) making for three mares instead of the first games four.

It's okay... What's odd to me is that there's no longer any bonus time. I think it's growing on me though, so I'll keep playing and see how the rest goes.

EDIT: Actually, it turns out there are multiple missions per dream. However, the first mission of each dream, known as "Chase Mission" is the one I described earlier and the one closest to the old gameplay of NiD.

I got this game Christmas morning. This game gave me a pretty serious reason not to trust reviewers.

Reviews generally came in at around 6 to 7 scores on a 0-10 scale, much lower then it deserved. They all nit-picked the game for minor flaws (on-foot missions (There are only 4/31 missions on foot), voice acting (which some people actually liked, and I didn't find to make my ears bleed or anything), and graphics (I just don't care all that much about graphics... Besides, the levels look beautiful). The most major WRONG nitpick was unskippable cut-scenes. WRONG! WRONG!!! The cut-scenes are only unskippable the first time, and then if you hit the minus button to retry (right next to the plus button), you get to skip them. And you get to skip them with any repeats as well. This game seems to be overly nitpicked, when these reviews ignore the main aspect of the game, the one that overturns minor imperfections. FUN. This game is fun. It was meant for high replayabilty (sp?) as well.*Spoilers Ahead*
