The lights are on
Besides the so-so Contra: Hard Corps, Sega fans couldn't play any entry from Konami's awesome shooter series on the Genesis. Fortunately, the spectacular Treasure title, Gunstar Heroes, hit the Genesis in full force. The co-op run and gun shooter allowed two players to mix and match power-ups in the age-old quest to kill everything onscreen.
This week we're joined by Brent Weinbach, comedian, host of The Legacy Music Hour, and friend of Replay. Brent previously joined us for a look back at Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse, and he's back to play Gunstar Heroes with Ben Reeves, Kyle Hilliard, and myself.

I dig Brent's podcast and this was a great replay. Why no Rob F? I find him to be the more affable of the Legacy Music Hour duo
for once i agree with tim. the game was beast and 7 force one of the best bosses in my memory from back in the day. homing laser ftw.
The Legacy Music Hour is really fantastic podcast, but I'm not sure Brent really fits with the replay crew yet. Also, that beetle game was really nothing special. My grandma got me this for xmas and I couldn't stand it, shortcuts or not.
Me and my brother use to play this religiously. Till this day we've probably beat Gunstar Heros 20 times.
one of my favourite game of all times but for the genesis version only...also there is alien soldier by the same company...oh good old time on my megadrive.
Kinda wanna see you guys do a Mario Kart battle now. Rock'n'Roll.
I do loves me a good shortcut. I once made love to a shortcut. That makes the son we had a forthcut. Shortcuts... Amurica...
I'm in agreement with those who say Gunstar Heroes is the greatest Shooter on the Sega Genesis! ^_^ Though I also love Alisia Dragoon to pieces as well despite the fact that I was never able to beat it. (I hear that Alisia Dragoon kicked even leet's bums! O_0 )
Hey GameInformer, ya oughta Replay Alisia Dragoon sometime, if ya haven't already! :D
