Swingin’ Report Show #12: Tight Purple Spandex

This week on the podcast you have me (George), nSEGA and Shigs talking about a variety of SEGA topics. We talk about SEGA signing a distribution deal with EA, rumored Sonic related games in the works and go off topic (quite a bit). A big theme of the podcast is the NiGHTS franchise, which turns 15 years old this week.

    FUCK! XD Just realized I gave you the wrong version of dreams dreams to put in the podcast >_< oh well..

    Edit: NOT saying it's bad. Just think the disco mix would of been more appropriate for a podcast.

    1up.com has a Sega Saturn Collectors guide article on their main page right now. It's pretty good. http://www.1up.com/features/saturn-collectors-gui

      Best version in my opinion. Reminds me of Christmas eve, because thats when I always play it. 😉

    I finally dug out my Saturn and hooked it up to my HDTV (expecting horrible things), replaced the battery for the game saves, and popped in NiGHTS. It certainly doesn't look as bad as I expected, very vibrant, just aliased like crazy. I have sit farther back than usual to enjoy it.

    I was most surprised to find a "Widescreen" option… so now the game and cinemas fill up the screen much better. I already beat Claris' dream in less than an hour with B ratings on all the levels except an A on the last one.

    The Sonic Team logo still gives me goosebumps, it's so perfect.

      You rockin' the S-video or standard cables? I bought a Saturn S-video cable off ebay (from China, super cheap) and the picture quality is a huge improvement.

    • segaismysavior says:

      Standard cables, I don't think I've played the system since 2004. I used to have an Action Replay for game saves, but that doesn't load anymore. Either it died or the cartridge port did. Very interesting starting fresh with no saves.

    Thanks for mentioning my tweet 😀 You guys have very entertaining podcasts. I can't wait for your guys's next one already 🙂 once again, thanks for discussing the CE idea.

  9. Loved the Western reference.

    You can make so much puns about it: The 3:10 to Green Hill Zone!

  10. By the way, I'd like to thank you guys for plugging my Streets of Rage/Kinect question.

    The comparison with Rise of Nightmares is what got me thinking about it, since RoN already has a few to simulate actual movement in a space without being onrails.

    BTW, my Sega Bits handle, max_cady is pronounced pronounced not as cady in caddyshack, is sounds more like "Cadie", seen the Cape Fear movie? Robert Mitchum's and Robert DeNiro's character? Like that.
