Play-Asia has just started their "Easter Egg" sale, which is actually a sale on video games (though Play-Asia may sell you an egg if you ask). Most of the things they sell (released more than 30 days ago) are 20% off. The Freeloader isn't included, but lots of import games to play using the Freeloa...

After seeing the above auction on eBay (tip: sit down before checking the price), we couldn't help but wonder about what our readers have tucked away. Yeah, we're talking collectibles, especially the rare variety. Do you have anything special, either for sentimental or monetary value? It doesn't ha...

While there's (currently) no Christmas-related expansion like there was on the Saturn, Sonic Team still managed to sneak some seasonal content into NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams. No doubt some of you have figured this out already, as holidays have happened since the game's release. But new NiGHTS player...

People seem to be pretty divided so far on NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams. The critics tended to score it in the safe seventies, while some of our own commenters had similarly mixed feelings about the title. One thing looks pretty certain, however: if Journey of Dreams director Takashi Iizuka has his wa...

Fed up with his poor performance in NiGHTS, NeoGAFfer MobiusPigeon set out to remove the octagonal gate from his Nunchuk, allowing him full, unencumbered 360-degree rotation. Using a cone-shaped grinding stone on a drill, he bored out the joystick hole until it was circular. He reported an improvem...

The release of NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams this week is something we, as well as most of you, have been waiting on for awhile now. It's finally hit shelves and the reviewers have found the game has potential, but isn't as groundbreaking as the title that spawned it. Some of you have picked it up and...

Remember how everyone was excited about the idea of a new NiGHTS game just a half year ago? Well, let's go back to that happy place for one second before reality crashes down around us. NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams ended up as we feared following our hands-on at Tokyo Games Show. From reading various...

We were quite surprised when a tipster sent us a link to Sega's NiGHTS website which stated the original NiGHTS into Dreams is available to play on GameTap -- because it's not. Turns out Sega jumped the gun just a bit in announcing that NiGHTS into Dreams is coming to GameTap's gaming smorgasbord,...

It's time for a collective "Uh-oh!" We've been hoping against hope that NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams would be the game to bring Sega back from their current ruinous state to, well, where they were 11 years ago when the first NiGHTS came out. Back then they were a perfect counterpart to Nintendo, with N...

It's that time of the week again when we find out how the Wii and its games sold in Japan. While we really have no need to be worried about the hardware, certain unconfirmed numbers earlier this week did raise concerns about third-party software sales. So, how did the fair Wii fare in the land of...
