The lights are on
Our original plan for Super Replay was to give the best games of all time a lengthier treatment than our standard Replay episodes. I kicked things off with my favorite game ever, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. We continued with the classics by playing through Super Mario Bros. 3 and Resident Evil 2. However, things changed as soon as I picked an unassuming 1997 PSone title for our Replay Roulette during the Revolution X episode. We were so intrigued by what happened during the initial minutes of Overblood that we knew it needed to be the first obscure title to get its own Super Replay treatment. A year later, and the GI staff has Pipo t-shirts, the community has created remakes in Unreal and LittleBigPlanet, and we've watched (and participated in) the rise of an active Overblood/Replay fan group on Facebook. Now, it's time for us to play through Overblood 2.
The circumstances around this sequel are even more odd than our discovery of the original. Never released in the United States, Overblood 2 was widely reported to contain a game-breaking glitch that makes its completion impossible. Ignoring these warnings, we decided to order a UK version of the game off of eBay and try our luck. Can we finish the game, or will the bug result in our first-ever incomplete Super Replay? Will we see the return of Raz and Pipo? Can it possibly live up to the original? Watch below, and find out along with the Game Informer staff.
(Each episode will feature myself, Tim Turi, and Andrew Reiner, with a rotating cast of GI editors filling the fourth seat)

This looks like it's going to be the most epic Super Replay yet. There are just too many cool/epic/weird/whacky/insane things happening for it not to be :D Well worth the yearlong wait!
All I have to say is Wow! This is going to be one awesome Super Replay. Episode 1 was intense and had so many tie ins to the 1st game. I can't wait to see more! Overblood 2!!!
