Can't wait for this. I already have the PS2 enhanced version, but I'm looking forward to true HD resolutions and whatever new enhancements they choose to add.

I still enjoy the my Saturn version, but was really disappointed with the Wii sequel. I'll pick this up and hope they include Christmas NiGHTS as a special feature.

Cool. I remember playing it a lot when I went to Kmart. Hopefully they do more Saturn titles too, maybe a PDS re-release. If they found the code for this, then...well.. they should have the code for PDS somewhere.

*shakes head*

That said, all three of those series have recently been rereleased on XBLA:

The Golden Axe Collection (my review)
Streets of Rage Collection
and
Alex Kidd Collection, which for some reason includes Revenge of Shinobi

Not as nice as actual remakes/sequels perhaps, but I'm glad they're available with online play and other nice features.

Hopefully it's $10 or less. I always thought Nights was overhyped from day 1 and I'm a huge Sega fanboy. Fly around in a circle and go through some rings. Yay! I never even bothered to finish the game once.

There's still a shit-ton of pop-up/fade-in in the HD version. Fuck this sloppy porting with a new coat of paint bullshit, remake the motherfucker from scratch, you lazy fucks!

Buy it on 3DS? They made it, and its pretty good. It sold like a turd though, so chances are you best pick this one up cause there wont be more.

It will probably be $15.

Nights is a simple concept. Fly through rings, collect globes, and avoid the occasional enemy. Of course, most games tend to only have three basic ideas to them, some event less. Shooters for example, avoid bullets, shoot things. Woo!

It's the polish and features that really make a game. Sonic games, as basic as they can be, are fun because they offered a sense of speed which you didn't get from much else at the time. Beating a stage is easy, so the fun comes mostly from doing it quickly. Nights is similar, a pretty basic concept and if you simply play the game to beat it, it's kind of boring. But when you are playing to improve your rank on each stage, it can be a lot of fun. Trying to fly through a stage as quickly as possible while collecting as many globes as you can and not missing any rings makes for a much more enjoyable experience then playing through without challenging yourself. The sense of control, flight, music, and colors all blend together very well to make an enjoyable experience. It's rare when the different aspects of a game seem to fit together so well.

I would prefer a remake too if I weren't so sure they would screw up the physics and controls. This is Sega we're talking about. Best for them to port the game and polish the textures and increase the resolution.
