The lights are on
Welcome to Replay’s second season! While it may seem arbitrary to end a season after two years and over 100 episodes, we’ve never been sticklers for making sense or following rules.
I came up with the idea of a second season over a year ago, but wanted to bat around ideas with the Replay crew regarding new elements to make sure Season 2 wasn’t just a logo change. While this is still the same Replay you know and love, we’re going to have more fun with the second segment. We enjoyed taking shorter looks at our Roulette games, but we wanted more creative freedom for the second segment. Dan, Tim and I have thrown around dozens of new ideas – ranging from the informative to the insane – and we like the idea of our viewers not knowing what the second segment will be. We’ll still do Roulette on occasion, but as you’ll see in the weeks ahead, you’ll frequently be met with surprises.
After viewing our lengthy look at GoldenEye 007, a highly requested title from our viewers and Replay cast, you’ll get the first taste of the type of things we can do with this second segment. It’s one of our wackier ideas, and there’s a chance it won’t return, but we’d like to create an air of unpredictability with each episode as we move forward.
The Replay crew extends big thanks to Game Informer alumni Thomas Blustin for his tireless work on creating Replay’s new logo, and Joe Kane of Joe Kane Design for the new animated intro. As always, this show wouldn’t be anything special without the video and audio expertise of Ben Hanson and Jason Oestreicher.
Enjoy the episode and please let us know what you think of our new direction in the comments section below!

Great episode guys, fun stuff. Loved the second part, that was so funny, you guys did great with it, hope it makes a comeback .
Future Replay is awesome!!! Ben Reever Bot is AMAZING.
The normal Replay was great as always, but I wasn't able to watch 2037. It was just to awkward for me.
I would prefer it if you guys just played modern games after the Replay or if you all were a robot. Then you could focus more on the game and less on making weird voices.
You all rock! Keep up the great work!
I actually liked Replay 2037. I just want to know if you were making it up as you went along, or if you made a timeline. However, I don't look forward to the future presented.
The replay was great and I think that 2037 was more focused on the voices and not what you were saying...It could be great though
I could only watch Replay 2037 for a few minutes. Sort of jumped the shark.
I played the game for years! Awesome!
Do a super replay of Goldeneye!!! Please!!!
Okay....loved the Golden Eye Replay! BUT sorry I hated the gimmick they did instead of replay roulette....didn't think it was funny and that they played a game only a couple of years old. Couldn't even watch the it to the end! :(
timesplitters...good times! (/0_0)/
I was doing a lot of thinking about this episode and I think I may have found one of the major problems with Replay 2037. We as a community have spent the last 2 years getting to know you guys as gamers and I'm sure a lot of people feel as friends. The interaction with the community has been one of the driving forces behind your success in my opinion. We connect with you guys and have come to know your personality quarks. Dan is a goldfishian man child. Joe is a big ol' jerk. Tim is a goofy/awkward/loveable dude. Andrew is the straight laced semi voice of reason trying to drive the ship. You guys have kind of become the digital version of the friends we game with face to face and share the experience with. But as those future characters, while funny as hell, there isn't much connection there. And that takes a lot away from the experience.
Haha loved the Uncharted 2 Replay.
That was amazing...
The Replay of Goldeneye was great, but if you guys are going to continue with Replay 2037, it'll need to be scripted and rehearsed. Improv is not your strong suit.
Sorry guys, didn't like the second part of this Replay.
First top ten replays then this, you guys are bringing it this week....
I loved the GoldenEye part but the bit after was just so bad
