I haven’t really been following this game’s progress, but it’s starting to get my attention. I’ve just noticed the various bits of footage that are up on the official site; amongst them the NiGHTS part of the game looks particularly interesting, as it appears you’ll be flying around in full 3D. There seems to be a lot of potentially innovative stuff in there, but what are your thoughts?
If those weren’t Eyetoy game I would be running out and buying a PS2 right now. It’s good to see NiGHTS again.
The games don’t look like much fun though. I like to play with a controller, not flaping my arms like a madman or something like that.
You don’t think that flapping your arms like a madman is fun?
Seriously though, I think I’m with you on that part; after a tiring day people often turn on their consoles to relax, and the whole eye-toy idea really doesn’t look very relaxing. Presumably it’ll be good for multiplayer party gaming, though.
Wow those Nights images look interesting…
Sega Superstar you say… hmmm…
Oh wait PS2!
Thats where these games’ charm comes from, that they use the eye toy, they may not be for everyone but that’s what they are…
Saying “Wish they weren’t eyetoy” or similar is like saying "Wish Space Channel 5 wasn’t about music or Super Monkey Ball wasn’t about balls cos they are hard to control… or something…imo
Well but those games use monkey’s with big ears or girls dressed like the rainbow.This is NIGHTS we are talking about damnit!
It brings a tear to my eye to see NiGHTS on a Playstation… And not in a good way

Looking at it the other way around though, these are non-eyetoy games that have been adapted into eyetoy mini-games; although this particular incarnation of Super Monkey Ball uses the eyetoy, Super Monkey Ball isn’t an eyetoy series, for example.
I feel more or less the same way myself; I’d be more enthusiastic about them if they were full-length sequels that didn’t use the eyetoy, rather than short games that do. Of course, I’d also be more enthusiastic if I actually owned a PS2, in which case I probably would be buying this. (Well, assuming that it doesn’t turn out absolutely terrible.)
Meh, I don’t have a problem with this. In fact I think it’s kinda cool, the idea of spreading your arms and pretending you really are Nights flying through rings sounds pretty fun, actually. I don’t mind these little spin-off games, it’s not like they’re supposed to have any REAL connection to the original games aside from cameo apperences. I always did like that Nights Pinball minigame in Sonic Adventure.
