VVG Show 10 – Nostalgic NiGHTS

Welcome to a very special NiGHTS into Dreams themed episode, wherein we plumb the depths of this unique 2D/3D hybrid flight-based racing/platforming/action game! Buckle up for nostalgia…

Adrian opens the show by explaining why his love for NiGHTS burns strong and true. This raging fanboy makes a number of comparisons between NiGHTS and Super Mario 64, not to pronounce a winner and loser in an epic clash between Sega and Nintendo so much as to praise both games for their shared outstanding qualities. After a brief musical interlude Maya enters the discussion to pile further praise on NiGHTS, giving her impressions and memories. The good times don’t last though as Maya resorts to mocking her fellow podcaster’s love of the game. Thankfully, not even Maya’s insults can detract from the sweetness that is the NiGHTS credits music which concludes our tenth episode.

I was of course aware that its 2007 sequel, Journey of Dreams, got a fairly muted reception upon its release, garnering fairly average reviews and I imagine less-than-fairly-high sales. But, thankfully, from the little I’ve played, Journey of Dreams does at least retain the exact same gameplay of the original, with the expected modern visual effects and clarity. I haven’t played enough yet to talk much about the game as a whole, but I felt compelled to post because the opening to this game is revealing of a number of issues from the word “go”.

For all the Nights fans out there…

This brilliant arrangement of the Nights Into Dreams theme song, Dreams Dreams, is a tribute to my neighbours, we’re not halfway into November and yet Christmas decorations and fairy lights are already up in their garden. It’s completely inexplicable but so damn good at the same time.
