The lights are on
We've been getting a lot of requests in the comment sections of Replay, and many of you mentioned that you'd like to see some NES titles. We figure most gamers have a pretty clear memory of the obvious choices (Mario, Zelda, Punch-Out) thanks to re-releases, emulators, and the Virtual Console, so we landed on Scrooge McDuck's treasure-hunting adventures. It was well-received when it was released and many gamers have feelings of nostalgia for it, but how does the gameplay hold up two decades later? Check out the new episode below and just try to get the cartoon's theme out of your head.

Road Warrior looks like a horrible game but excellent Replay episode. Keep them coming.
Another hilarious episode. Keep them coming guys.
I loved DuckTales by the way...and was probably one of the few that actually played the second one.
all of those games sucked. I have fond memories of non of those.
This was the one of the NES games that I loved to play and I finished it a number of times. I not sure how I'd feel about playing it today but looking back it was a great time for me! Also I loved the show too so..
*sigh* Doneld wasn't there father he was anouther uncle. They had no father.
Disney had the best video games back in the 90s, now the only thing that worth playing from them is the Kingdom Hearts series, I have hope for Epic Mickey. I can't wait for that.
I have fond memories of this game.
thanks for the video!
it was so cool to see this game again ducktails 1 was the first game i ever beat when i was just a tot. I think i had to ask my pops for help. you guys should replay airwolf or silent service!
Double roulette was my favorite part. I always like the roulettes because you don't mention what it will be in the article. Ducktales looked pretty cool. If they ever Virtual Console it, or Warren Spector makes one, I'd love to try it out. It would be cool to see a SNES or N64 game in the next replay hopefully something people have fond memories of. (the roulettes seem to yield something people aren't fond of anyway...which is why they are great.)
I remember that game. My buddy had it, so I didn't get a huge chance to play it. I do remember the controls to be a bit of a pain in the ass.
I tried playing Duck Tales a while back on a modded Xbox1. I don't know if it's the change in gamepad, or I was just better at video games back in the day, but I just couldn't do it. The same goes for Mega Man. I played Mega Man 3 religiously when I was a kid. Now I can't beat even one Master Robot. Sigh....
Another suggestion would be Vexx for the Xbox. It was pretty much Mario 64 on crack.
Love this episode. You should do metal slug
wow just hearing the music brings back memories!
I still have this game on the game boy! I still want to see metal gear solid
yo noid is truly a terrible game
You guys should do the first call of duty. Then we could see how much the series has changed. Or, you should do Kirby: Air Ride, for the gamecube. I used to love that game
do some psone games. spyro 2 or the amazing spiderman! loved loved loved those games xD
Ducktales looks like a load of fun, YoNoid not so much.
