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)

I just wish I didn't have to wait till tomorrow to watch it on Youtube on my Xbox. I much rather watch it on my TV than my computer.
Nicely done folks! This game looks like absolute crap but I had a lot of fun watching Tim play it. I'm kinda sad it's over :(
haHAA! Love Lancelot finisher. 度もうありがとうベンハンソンさん。 Thank you very much Mr. Ben Hansen.
It's finally over!! Dan laughing at the end was hilarious lol.
Finally over, at least well always had Overblood.
Beautiful ending to an epic saga. Congrats to all of you for sticking through playing this whole thing.
Though I was expecting a nice musical montage of Overblood Greatest Hits at the end, what Ben threw in there instead was just as awesome. Well done!
I'm glad half of my name got a shout out in the last episode.
Oh I will miss the insanity of Overblood. Kudos to all...especially Tim..I knew you could do it.
Great Super Replay. That junkblade segment at the end seemed absolutely terrible.
Thank you for finishing Overblood. I love you guys!
May the OverBlood be with all of you
P.S. Dan is such a child, and I wouldn't have it any other way
Excellent work Guys!!!
Big props to 'TIMBO SLICE' on the sticks. You beat it!!!!
You put in over 20 hours, and I loved every second of it. Good job to Tim. Everyone else, it was a miracle that you managed to stay in the room and make it worth watching. Overblood had a good run. Now it is time for something else. Can't wait till this weekend. Project Mako!!?
wtf was dan doing with the mic stand at the end?
*clap* GOOD JOB GUYS. Now lets all go outside and breathe some fresh air.
