    I'm conflicted. Of course I'll help because I loved NiGHTS Into Dreams and still somewhat enjoyed Journey of Dreams, but then I have no reason to doubt thst NiGHTS will not be in this. If there is something that the NiGHTS fanbase is so worried about, some news we have not heard that would help. Because the reason. "NiGHTS hasn't been revealed yet and thus without a shadow of a doubt NiGHTS obviously isn't in." doesn't make sense to me. I can understand worrying but you guys say it with such force as if this is written in stone when as I said unless you know something we don't I see no reason for NiGHTS to not be in this. In fact, everything points to NiGHTS being in, besides NiGHTS not being revealed yet. The "Not revealed yet" excuse runs even thinner when the other shoe-in character Ulala would not have been confirmed yet either if it was not for Nintendo Power's mentioning. The reason I am so uphand about this is because this reminds me of so many instances like Sonic games, Brawl, etc where people doubt a character's existence based on time. People doubted Ness, Luigi, Marth, Jigglypuff, and so many other characters were in because they weren't revealed for a long while until close to release. It's just, unless there is something we are not aware about, we don't see any reason NiGHTS wouldn't be in this, partly because NiGHTS already plays a big part of the Sonic series as it is and frequently appears. Hell, NiGHTS appears in more Sonic games than a lot of actual Sonic character do. Also NiGHTS is a Sonic Team character, I mean they let them use a bunch of Sonic characters, I don't think they wouldn't let them use NiGHTS.

    Ah! Once again I've wasted a good thirty minutes of my time making a list about something. This time around, I've chronicled every series featured in the Sega Superstars games so far. -=Sega Superstars main crew (Appeared in both the original and sequel)=- ChuChu Rocket! NiGHTS Puyo Puyo Samba de Amigo [Confirmed Reappearance] Sonic the Hedgehog [Confirmed Reappearance] Space Channel 5 [Confirmed Reappearance]* Super Monkey Ball [Confirmed Reappearance] The House of the Dead [Confirmed Reappearance] -=Sega Superstars=- Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg [Confirmed Reappearance] Crazy Taxi Virtua Fighter Virtua Striker -=Sega Superstars Tennis=- After Burner Alex Kidd [Confirmed Reappearance] Golden Axe Jet Set Radio [Confirmed Reappearance] Out Run Space Harrier Virtua Cop -=Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing=- Shenmue [Confirmed Appearance] *Confirmed albiet accidentally in a interview with Nintendo Power - No further confirmation by SEGA/Sumo Digital since then. With that being said, my socks would not only be blown off, but would in fact be disintegrated, if NiGHTS was not to appear in Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. Same goes for ChuChu Rocket! and Puyo Puyo. EDIT: Well, that certainly was an odd formatting mess. Fix'd now. EDIT FROM THE FUTURE: Ha! Crazy Taxi, Out Run, and Virtua Fighter have been confirmed! Now, we wait for NiGHTS...

    Sonic & SEGA All-Stars Racing

    Honestly, I'd be happy to take a break from Sonic and have purely other SEGA franchises. I think the main point here I'm picking up is that if SEGA do start to forget about NiGHTS then the series as a whole could disappear. It's quite thin as it is with only two major games and it'd be disappointing if we hear nothing more of the series again, like wasted potential. I don't think they should contact you. I don't think they should contact anyone about anything. Their job is to make the game, not to give all its secrets away before release. Travis and Steve are massive SEGA nuts, they're bound to at least do a half-decent job at worst. I trust them with the franchises, I mean heck, they've even managed to get bloody Ryo in!

    I think both soundtracks are very good, though the Japanese one fits Sonic the best in my opinion. PAL version had the japanese soundtrack so this change didn't affect me at all. Localizations bother me to a degree, because I like to experience the original product, like the creator intended and not like someone else supposes it to be. As long as there's a way for me to have it (for example, the japanese and english voices both being included in the games) then I don't really care to be honest.

    I can understand the dislike for the US soundtrack. The JP/EU one is much more wacky, fun and actiony. I must say the boss music from the US version is silly and not Eggman-like at all (unless of course you were raised on SatAM and therefore thing Eggman must be the evilest thing since the uneven ratio between hot dog buns and hot dog sausages). But there are a few tracks I prefer in the US: I find Tidal Tempest Present to have a very nice sad melody to it in US. The "laa laa loo" vocals kind of take that a way a little bit when they start up, but behind them there's a really nice sombre tune. JP/EU was great and atmospheric, but then we get Bad Future. In JP/EU, it's absoloutely mad, and very intense, but the US one far gives me a better atmosphere of a run-down, flooded factory. I think overall Metallic Madness and Palmtree Panic are the most controversial in the US. Both of those got seriously mellowed out. The Present tunes were okay, but in the future, they barely sound different in tone. Bad Future in particular had a completely different tone for Palmtree Panic, and Good Future for Metallic Madness lacked any sort of final "yeah we're gonna win!" epicness.

    Right guys, let me ask you this. Say there was a new Superstars game coming out, and all of a sudden one day Dreadknux told you that he believes Sonic won't be in it, and that you need to show your support to SEGA to make them change thier minds. I sincerely doubt any of you would question him, you'd flock like sheep to his aid, and so would I, as a member of a neighbouring community.

    See, one thing I absolutely love about the Sonic CD soundtrack debate is that I'm very much a special case in the matter than disproves the argument "You prefer the one you grew up/ heard first". When I say I prefer the Japanese/ European soundtrack, people usually try to jump down my throat with "You're just biased because that's the one you grew up with". Truth is, I grew up with the US soundtrack (PC version), so there's no bias. ;P Okay, I'll admit I'm heavily biased against the US version 'Sonic Boom' songs, because I did actually hear the JP/ EU versions of those first (saw the opening and end animations on Sonic Jam and fell in love with them, was totally gutted when I heard Sonic Boom when I finally got the PC version D= ) But yeah, aside from the song replacements which I obviously noticed, I actually had no idea that they'd replaced most of the BGM until about four years ago. So it can't be any kind of inherent bias that I thought that the majority of the games' soundtrack was rather bland, samey and unmemorable. I just assumed the composers must have been having an off-day when they did the music for Sonic CD. Yes, the US one has a few standout tunes, but I'd personally not say they're on par with the JP/EU ones. Okay, the JP/EU tracks have a few somewhat forgettable ones too, but the hit to miss ratio is much, much better than the US one. I found that a lot of the US soundtrack seems almost like random ambience at times, as opposed to actual music. And one thing that really got me was how the tunes they had for the Present and Futures was either completely different (whereas in the JP/EU tracks all time zones were clearly remixes of the same base level tune), or almost identical. That said, I by no means hate the US soundtrack, I just... don't like it. In my opinion, it doesn't really sound like Sonic music. I do however think it's practically a crime with how they handled the BGM during the Metal Sonic race and final boss, though. Japanese version: Metal Sonic race plays the badass Bad Future mix, regardless of whether you have a good or bad future at that point. US version... plays whichever time zone tune you're in. So if you have a good future, you get to race Metal Sonic to calm, pedestrian ambience! So dramatic! =D Similar for the last boss, where the JP version has a special boss tune, the US version just uses the regular boss music, as far as I can remember. It's a real shame they put the US tracks on Sonic Gems collection, because the game may as well not be there for me as it stands. I really should try and sort out emulating Sonic CD again, actually.

    Did Sonic meet Amy or Tails first?

    Probably because no one's saying that. 1. CD was being developed in parallel with Sonic 2. They are both, essentially, sequels to Sonic 1. Considering that, in the absence of hard evidence to the contrary, games are considered to occur in the order they are released, it makes more sense to place CD near Sonics 1 and 2 than after S3&K. 2. Considering several factors (character personality, their role in the series, their general usage), it is more believable for Amy to not appear in a game with no stated explanation than for Tails to not appear in a game with no stated explanation. Therefore, if forced to make a decision, it makes more sense to place CD before Sonic 2 to explain Tails' absence than to place CD after S3&K to explain Amy's absence. I haven't seen your response to the first point (and my apologies if I've simply missed it), and I still don't think you grasp the thrust of the latter. It helps if you read the whole sentence:

    Did Sonic meet Amy or Tails first?

    Then I'm going to ask that you stop confusing objective reasoning with subjective reasoning. I have worked very hard to keep my responses in this thread as factual as possible, and quite frankly I find it insulting that you are continuing to toe the line that I'm making this shit up as I go along and calling things inaccurate only as it suits me. I suggest you actually look up my reasoning for some of my statements before you throw around the idea that I'm discounting things just because I don't like them. I'm not saying stuff like "the continuity of Chaotix itself is also rather iffy," "the events of Sonic the Fighters mean absolutely nothing," "none of the Game Gear games can actually be canon" and "they would all have to come after Sonic and Knuckles anyways" simply because it supports whatever cause I'm trying to shill. I'm saying it because, at least from what I've been able to find, it is the truth. That being said, if you are finding factual error in my statements, feel free to point them out so I can revise them; but don't stand there and say that I'm intentionally wrecking people's theories only because they are against mine; especially not when I have admitted (and explained the reasoning behind) why my theory also has problems. I was playing Sonic CD yesterday. You don't.

    This is why I hate fanbases. We forget that developers are people, and whine at every chance we get. Sometimes people fuck up, but most of the time, they're just doing their job and it's not good enough for you. Enjoy the game for what it is- the presence of one character won't make any difference to the overall quality. Big deal if NiGHTS isn't in it. Being a staple in the SEGA Superstar series, he's probably in anyway.

    "More" in 'Splosion Man's case is a colossal understatement. I mean seriously, timing explosions to bounce each other off and making it through the timed areas while having to go through that shit at the same time? It'd be impossible to do without any communication at all between players. Thank god for 360 headset, even though I preffer to play the game locally with my buddies. Splosion Man's difficulty can't even be compared to NSMB Wii. It's diabolic at times. That said there's nothing that would hinder Nintendo to actually add WiiSpeak and use more out of it, and add online to NSMB Wii. I'm still gutted cause of its omission.

    NiGHTS is also the only one who appered in both Sonic Riders games. Shenmue also sees NiGHTS as capsule toy. NiGHTS is always hinted everywhere. Christmas NiGHTS is the very first game where Sonic went 3D. NiGHTS is just a symbol for SEGA. Stop these doubts

    I think I'd rather forget NiGHTS after that abysmal second game. Regardless, in hope you guys will get your wishes I emailed the message off too. I do think NiGHTS will still be included in the game, I think Travis and Steve just enjoy pulling the fan bases legs. If it's not in it, it's not the end of the world, NiGHTS has been in plenty of spin-off titles, even Sonic Riders. Please don't. As much as I really want to see Ristar in the game, I feel sorry for these poor devs. It's just going to turn into "I wish to see x in the game, let's all email SEGA!" vvv Bit of a harsh way to put it, isn't that? But yeah, it's bound to be in. vvv

    That's purely a matter of taste, though, dependent on the characterisation which a player personally prefers. I thought Chronicles was unequivocally the best Sonic script... well, ever, because to my eyes the character personalities and interactions were actually done RIGHT for once. TROOF

    One of the most underrated, for me, were the treasure hunting stages and mecha-platforming in SA2. They were a lot of fun and helped break the flow of playing only "speed" levels. The "shooting" in ShtH was not bad to me, either. They were actually a lot of fun to play, and the gave me a really good challenge that helped fulfill my like for the game.

    Nope your not the only one and I'm not talking about only myself either We had a similar topic not too long ago. There, I also made a post on why I think they would work. http://www.sonicstadium.org/board/topic/2431-amy-rose-and-sonic/page__view__findpost__p__75474 If your talking about the time round Sonic Heroes and Sonic Battle, then yes I agree she was like that. I didn't like how she was in those games. In recent games though, she seems to have calm down quiet a bit IMO. I'm glad she's not making marriage proposals anymore and reverted back to just wanting to spend time with him. In Sonic Unleashed, When she found out that Sonic was a werehog, it didn't bother her at all. She said something along the lines of " Even if you changed your look, your still Sonic to me." I think she does like him for who he is and just wants to be around him more. I didn't even take what happened between Sonic and Rouge serious in Chronicles or Sonic Battle because Rouge is naturally flirty. I don't think Sonic toke her actions serious either. Sonic is definitely not the only character she has flirted with. It seems to me Rouge only becomes flirtatious is when she wants something. Hasn't she even flirted with Eggman to some degree? (my memory might be failing on that one). The only real connections she has is with Shadow and Omega. I'll admit I like Rouge/Shadow. Rouge seems to genuinely care for Shadow, whether it's out friendship or more remains to be seen. But I do think her quote in Sonic 06 "Know that I will always remain by your side" to me kinda hinted at something, but thats just me.

    Ahh, shipping. One of the parts of the fanbase I really side myself with. Unlike most, I 'ship crack couples and many unconventional couples, like Davis/Mimi in Digimon and Sakura/Kaho in CCS. Also, despite being a straight male, I support more shonen-ai and yaoi in this fandom than yuri (the other exception being Yu-Gi-Oh GX, as I support a lot of yaoi, May/December, and some incest couples there). But that doesn't mean I don't support odd couples in Sonic. In fact, I really support a lot of crack couples here. My OTPs are these. 1. Amy/Elise: My OTP in Sonic. I loved the chemistry these two girls had and how they supported each other despite being brief. I also began supporting the thought of a romantic relationship in response to the Elise-bashing that ran rapid after Elise kissed Sonic. 2. Chris/Tails: My OTP for Sonic yaoi. Great chemistry these two had, and I enjoyed their conversations. I also like how Tails was an inspiration to Chris in the latter part of Season 1 and Season 2. I also began supporting this after growing tired of the Chris-bashing in the fandom. 3. Shadow/Maria: My het OTP in Sonic. Such a tragic group, both of whom were very close to each other. These two were very good friends, and I loved it when their past was explored, especially in Shadow the Hedgehog (Character > Gameplay). 4. Mephiles/Shadow (one-sided, Mephiles being "in love"): My kink-'ship in Sonic, and one of the few Sonic couples that feels plausible when writing a graphic non-con/rape scene, IMO. Mephiles is cold and loves control and chaos. He torments people's minds greatly, and he did that with Shadow. But I don't see the couple as "yaoi," as Mephiles is technically genderless...but I wouldn't mind it as yaoi, either. I may not be a big fan of fancharacter/canon character 'ships that much myself, but there ain't anything wrong with 'em at all. They have just as much chance as canon/canon if you ask me. *sweeps the vomit out of the forum*

    What the bloody hell does it matter if people buy it? The game's so damn old a lot of people may have forgot or never known it even existed. Not every gamer in the whole damn world emulates games so that's a pretty fucking moot point anyway. If I had a bit of extra cash and I cared to spend it on the Wii Virtual Console instead of on the PlayStation Network or something else, I might just get it. Why? Because it's a fun little game I played when I was younger and I'm a fan of Michael Jackson! Does that honestly seem like such a terrible thing? My goodness. Chill the fuck out. Your attitude annoys the hell out of me.

    Archie characters have appeared in the gallery beforehand, but they were never the main focus and weren't that prominent in the image. Seeing as this picture was a hueg well-drawn "group shot" Halloween image from an artist whose work is frequently featured there, I can see why they let it pass. It's also worth noting that although the Archie and Fleetway characters are generally considered to be taboo on Sonic Channel, the TMS Entertainment (read: Sonic X) characters appear to be allowed to make prominent appearances alongside the main characters in the fan art gallery. That being said, I haven't seen any of Bioware's Sonic Chronicles characters appear within the gallery so far. Oh, and I still find the lack of Nega to be unsettling. Sonic Team appears to love the guy and has had him as a main antagonist of every seventh generation handheld game so far*, but yet they don't even bother to give him an entry in Sonic Channel's Characters section? One-shot characters like Marine and Emerl have profiles....but no Nega? Tsk tsk tsk. * Only counting games in which Sonic Team has provided the script for. (The Sonic Rush and Sonic Rivals series.)

    To be honest, I was actually shocked when I saw that ghost scene. Because it's not something I'd expect from sonic team. I'm just not into that type of humor in a sonic game. There should be humor, but not something as childish as that for me. I don't mind seeing that in a cartoon. But just because sonic is a cartoonish creature, doesn't mean the script, and characters have to be. That's a dumb stereotype. I like the idea of sonic characters living in a realistic world, as it adds a sense of surrealism. Well I already did say how the plot in Sonic Heroes was weak. But honestly I prefer the Heroes storyline to the Unleashed one. But the parts I thought were genius were the character team CG interactions. Slick, fast, charming, and edgy. Most of the script was cheesy, but I actually prefer that script over the "Hey Sonic Want Some Chocolate?" script of Unleashed. I like the idea of Sonic Tails and Knuckles teaming up to stop Eggman, traveling through beautiful environments and having a cool time enjoying themselves. As well as other characters forming teams. I like that teamwork concept. Because it was new and it was the first sonic game to show off CG movie character interactions. As for Shadow, I liked the plot and script. I didn't find it ridiculous at all, simply because I didn't find any half-ass quality in it. There was reason, emotion, anger, confusion, questioning, and planning in the writing. I also found a lot of intelligent dialouge between the characters. It's just that fans go, "Oh great aliens.... this is retarded." And it's that kind of judgement I hate.

    Agreed, especially on the forced humor. When my friends and I were watching the cutscenes, our reactions were like "....what the hell is this??" And just because I don't like Chip, or think he's funny doesn't mean I'm a mean old troll. I just find him to flat out suck. LOL, True. His character design is already nauseating enough. His nose looks ridiculous. I already don't like that cartoonish human Unleashed style, so that's pretty much the main reason I think he sucks. There's also his name. Professor Pickle. That sounds like something they got out of the Powerpuff Girls. Then there's the way he acts. He's weak minded, slow, boring. He's trapped in a cell, and when they find him, all he can think about is sandwitches.... Again with that godawful forced humour. It's a turnoff when a cool guy like sonic interacts with a ridiculous character like Prof. Pickle. And just my personal opinion, but those cartoonish humans actually makes Sonic seem less cool than he should be. Sonic is not Looney Toons. Well, It's not like they have to be playable. Just there for support, story development, and fan service. What are you talking about? His attitude in Sonic Heroes, Shadow the Hedgehog, and Sonic Adventure 2 was all the edgy I needed. I didn't say he had to go over the edge. I just said he was too soft in Unleashed. each to their own.

    Well, I don't think they should look overly realistic, but I don't think it's good to make them overly cartoony. Because honestly, I find them ugly and disproportioned. Something along the lines of Merlina in the 2D cutscenes in Sonic and the Black Knight, is a good example of how humans should be displayed. It doesn't clash with the art style at all. There needs to be tension to pull the audience in. To not bore the audience. At least that's what I assume Sonic Team has been doing. And it works. These characters are popular not only for their designs, but for the roles they play in these stories. How they act and how well they're fleshed out. What they did to overcome the obstacles in the plots is always remembered by fans and actually makes discussion interesting.

    Anything that isn't as ridiculous as the characters in Unleashed. Seriously..... Professor Pickle... And so what if Sonic is a cartoonish hedgehog. Does that mean the human's have to look disproportional and cartoonish too? Does that mean the script has to be cartoony too? I actually like that overdramatic stuff. It's what makes the character development and stories interesting. I like these stories to have depth. Unleashed's story has virtually no depth. It doesn't pull me in or grasp me. And that's why I have a problem with it. And I don't have a problem with characters saying funny things, but the thing is, nothing the characters said in Unleashed was funny. Just uninteresting, mostly irrelevant dialouge.

    I was talking about Unleashed with the themes, but... fine, I'll play this game. The power of teamwork is best shown when it goes up against its opposite. Having Metal Sonic forsake his maker and all others when Sonic overcomes him with the strength of himself and his companions provides a counterpoint; the idea of teamwork ends up defeating the idea of isolation. Having them work together makes it a good and evil story. But regardless. Your main objection to Metal Sonic's characterization is that it shows disrespect to Eggman. But when Metal Sonic is Eggman's servant, he's... he's EVERY SINGLE BADNIK EVER, just with a cooler metal shell. Metal's story in Heroes is about him trying to escape his limitations, become the ultimate robot, and put his rivalry with Sonic to rest. It's confining and limiting to just make him Eggman's underling. How can he reach his full potential if he's just someone's slave? It's not always NECESSARY for something to be sentient. Frankly, storytelling structure does not ALWAYS advocate that every figure in a work has to be dynamic, personable entity. That's trite and overly traditional. Dark Gaia was a force of nature. Part of the cycle of the planet's destruction and rebirth. Unleashed emphasizes this HEAVILY. If Eggman were in complete control? They are not defeating a force of nature. They are defeating Eggman. That jives on the entire idea.

    well, technically Xmas NiGHTS was kinda like a 'back then DLC' thing, lol. And the PS2 is a HD NiD, lol. But, if you view it like that then i guess there have been more NiGHTS games. But in terms of full games then TJ&E kinda win on that round. I can assure you there is nothing wrong with me or what this campaign is based around. The only thing wrong here is SEGA's choices they've been making, i'm just a fan trying to do something about it before it's too late. But you won't change your mind and i won't force you either. So you and me, let's leave it there.

    Firstly, you. Shut the hell up and stop speculating. I have never said anything of the sort. You're partly responsible for the whole drama on Vectorman too so you'd do well to shutting your mouth and not spreading personal theories like that. I don't think you understand that saying stuff like this, even when they're not even true, has the greatest potential to get people fired and end up in court. Name dropping people who might not even have anything to do with it could cause a lot of problems for not just them but YOU. So watch what you're saying. Now that's out of the way, Sonic Stadium Message Board, let me introduce myself. I'm DiGi Valentine, co-admin of the NiGHTS fanbase. Chances are most of you don't know me so get to know me real quick with what i'm about to say. Being co-admin to the only active community for NiGHTS on this scale i find myself having to carry a lot of responsibility and there's a lot of levels of legitimacy i need to uphold. I would not be the kind of person you would see online running little rumours around the web just for kicks. Things like that damage you and your websites reputation. And seeing as our one site is the centre for the entire NiGHTS fanbase i have to be 100% sure on what i'm saying online and offline because running fantasies and false truths as 'fact' is something i can never do. Understand my position and understand what i am saying here regarding this. Now, with that in the back of your minds i am here to raise awareness to any and all NiGHTS fans who come here. I don't believe NiGHTS is in ASR. I need people to trust me on this. Someone in my position and responsibility would not be coming here saying this if it was only even 99% truth. I strongly believe NiGHTS is not in ASR and the fans for NiGHTS need the right to fight for him to appear, which is why i've begun this campaign. DLC discussions seem to be happening right now at SEGA regarding ASR so if us NiGHTS fans want to see NiGHTS it seems this time we may have to be fighting for him. I've been called 'paranoid', been told i'm 'over reacting', many people have said "NiGHTS is expected", and none of this means anything to me because they're not in the position i'm currently in and should they come to understand why i'm even bothering to do this then they'll realise i'm not messing around. I would certainly not have started this campaign at all unless there was a reason for concern. And there is. So, i ask all of you to personaly trust me with what i am telling you here. I would not lie about NiGHTS. I did not spend all these years working for the NiGHTS fanbase just to give way to telling elaborate fairy tales. In closing, please. If you have ever liked NiGHTS or cared much for the character then please show your support and request NiGHTS for DLC. And i thank you for your time.

    No... this is fans overreacting to something they actually don't know about.
