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)

Pipo for the win!
awesome, just awesome. love how the episode ends just like a glitch in the game haha
Always nice after along day to come on here and watch these replays. Always makes me laugh great job guys.
My life is now complete.
you might want to save even more often because of the rumored glitch. there might be a way to bypass the glitch
That was amazing! I can't wait for more! So much hilarity so early can only mean good things.
Great stuff guys, I was laughing so hard I almost choked on some Wheat Thins and that was just while watching the opening sequence! This could just be the best Super Replay yet...
HOOOOOOLLLLY SHIIII1IT! ITS PIPO!
I am so ready for this.
The first episode alone was amazing, I cannot wait to see this play out!
It really does seem like a love child of overblood and final fantasy 7 >.>
glory hole 3000
That was the beginning of a great space age epic.
I felt a guy. lol I hope there's a T-shirt competition this time--you just know every T-shirt entry is going to be "I felt a guy" with a picture of Acarno masturbating.
I better not have to wait for each Saturday to watch the new ones of these. That drives me crazy.
*spoilers to episode 1*
First 30 minutes or so I felt as if this was disappointing as nothing seemed to be like the first... luckily that changed.
