The lights are on
Before game director Hideki Kamiya brought us Ōkami and Bayonetta, he designed a stylish 2D brawler for the GameCube called Viewtiful Joe. In a plot stolen from an Arnold Schwarzenegger film, Joe jumps into a movie in order to save his girlfriend.
Join Tim Turi, Andrew Reiner, Jim Reilly, and myself as we warp time in Viewtiful Joe and then warp our minds during the Replay Roulette.

I was just thinking about how awesome a Viewtiful Joe replay would be.
interesting episode indeed. both games looked horrible to play. jim is quite negative, though i can't say it detracted from the episode.
Viewtiful Joe feels too current to me. I still play this game. I know replay can include gamecube, xbox, and ps2, but sometimes I wish the cut off was one more gen back.
Jim sounds like he needs a nap.
I've never played Viewtiful Joe, but always wanted to. Maybe some day I can get my hands on a copy.
VJ looks great but it doesn't seem fun to me at all. I like how Reiner pretty much demanded that Tim play it all weekend.
THIS is the one of de best games I played
Wasn't Dead Phoenix speculated to be a Kid Icarus sequel. That's what I kept hearing before it was ultimately canceled. Also, screw Capcom for going back on their promise and porting these games to the PS2. The better versions will always be on the Gamecube.
I'm agreeing with Tim and Reiner! Jim was WAY out of line!
YES! This game was fantastic, I loved the art style and the humor. Great pick for Replay guys.
You guys should find someone who doesn't suck at games to have the controller.
Viewtiful Joe is one of the few games I had on the Gamecube, and one that I barely played. I got to some crazy underwater laboratory level and couldn't progress. I still had a fun time with the game though.
PS: Screw Jim Reilly
Jim's an ***.
Jim Reilly is a complete a**hole AND stupid? Most boringest? Really? Come on dude...
It just wasn't Jim's day xD
