The levels still look pretty barren, but there seems to be a lot of give time for stringing links together now.

Ditto. The Chao thing still confuses me.

Me three, I just hope they do his character justice, and unlockable in both games.

Also notice that in the interview they refer to Nights as a "He" most sources point that he is a he...but they like to keep you guessing anyways.

That's what I thought as well. I like the concept of a Chao Gargen-esque area to raise Nightopians in instead playing around with them in-level.

I really think Nights is more charming as an asexual entity, but that's just me.

I mean, shouldn't it be pronounced KAY-OH? The name is obviously derived from chaos, and how do you pronounce that? CHAY-OS?

Except in Japan, where apparently Chaos is pronounced "Chowce". IIRC, anyway.

Kaossu. And how the fuck would you think "Chao" is pronounced "Kayo"? Haven't you ever said (or heard) the word 'ciao' in your entire life?

Because Chaos is pronounced Kay-oss, and Chao is Chaos without the S. Gimp.

It's because of the Japanese, where it's not at all consistent. Chaos is pronounced like "Cows" (カオス), it's a known borrowed word over there, I think, and a single Chao is pronounced "Chow" (チャウ), and totally made up.

Also, most of the time Chaos' name seems to be written in romaji, while the Chao term is written in katakana. Many languages other than english pronounce chao like "chow".

EDIT: It's actually チャオ, not チャウ.

I know not this... "jappa-knees". I just stuck with what seemed like the logical conclusion. Then again, the English language is a fickle mistress. I remember getting burned by "chameleon" as a youngster.

I seem to recall the Tikal orb in the Station Square garden calling it a "chau" garden, and that was the English voiceover.

Who cares, Tikal was a dirty, lazy Mexican.

There is a difference between Aztecs of old and the illegals of today. The Aztecs gathered their food from the wild and sacrificed people. The modern Mexicans have bad 5 o'clock shadow and do menial jobs for almost nothing. And besides, I found Tikal more tolerable than Omochao.

That explains why he thinks he's black.

If anythin', Tikal would have been a Mayan, amirite (though, interestingly, her father seems to be Peruvian)? Those were lazy bastards even back then.

I'm not sure, but I hope Nitro's Brazilian, just like Blanka and Sean. Brazilians are damn cool.

As someone pointed out somewhere once, his species is Australian, his ancestors were Mexican, his voice is honky² and his music and dreadlocks are far from a subtle hint at blackitude. So he's probably a bit of a mutt.

Since he lives on a floating island, I'd assume it isn't Mexico or Brazil. If he's a wigger or not is something else entirely. From what I've gathered, his personality would be a mixture of Mesoamerican and African. I've never seen him act Iberian(ex: Spanish) in any way.

That's because you don't live there. But nonetheless, ^_^

And for the record, Knuckles's jamaican.

I don't know if this was ever mentioned, but I got an e-mail from SEGA yesterday about a "Making Of" DVD that's a supposed pre-order bonus for the game.

A mud/stray hut isn the same as a stone shine/pyramid. Plus he doesn't ever say "mon". And despite what he looks like, I don't think he has dreadlocks. It's just his hair/spines that are similar to Sonic's; nothing tying them together like that.

The video is up on YouTube, if you're interested. I misread it at first and thought we'd get something like a Limited Edition NiGHTS package. This I couldn't even care about. The shitty PSU package must have really put them off on releasing that kind of stuff.

I believe the correct term is "blaxican".
