Ok, so we’ve got some old classics being re done for the xbla psn scene, two of which are saturn titles that are valueble on the bay, like Guardian Heroes and the japanese only release radient silvergun. There was also news a few days ago of a Double Dragon title rated by the German USK. The full title was Double Dragon II: Wanderer of the Dragons. Which could mean anything, even the NES version of Double Dragon 2 had extra levels and played different to other versions on other machines, the NES version being one of my favourite games ever, especially in the beat em up category. Though really there are a number of all time greats for me, maybe we should do a poll or something sometime on the grigorig sometime.
Oh, but the point of this post, yes. Activision has registered domains for variants on Goldeneye 007 Reloaded. Now 2010 saw the re imagined goldeneye on the wii, which was ok, actually i was enjoying it, not like mega but ok. It didnt do its purpose in hitting the nostalgia bone, which is kinda what i wanted, so maybe this new title will do that, and with any luck on xbla, i mean deathmatch on the classic levels even if not rendered in hidef will be a winner i’m sure, multiplayer on the wii was a bit iffy, but ok. But then that’s all the wii has been is ok. Nights Journey of Dreams on the wii missed the point entirely, never let the americans do a japanese game isthe moral of that story, oh and don’t release it on wii. I think i’m gonna stop there before i get in a tiz about NiGHTS into Dreams being re released only on ps2 japan. I mean i’m not sure there is an analogue controller that will work as well for it as the Saturn 3D controller, but atleast its out there on an internet leaderboard capable device. And that’s what counts, i was actually good at that game, and sega rally, port that baby please. Ok maybe a did rant a little there. Don’t forget July 5th is NiGHTS 15th birthday. That’s the original japanese release date of the game 15 years ago, my how time has gone by. Over at NiGHTSintoDreams.com TRiPPY and DiGi got an in the same room interview with Yuji Naka and Takashi Iizuka, the creators of NiGHTS. There is a brief write up, and an mp3 interview to download, check it.
