The lights are on
This week we're strapping on blue and red 3D glasses, saving some babies, and fighting monsters in Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
Regular Replay master of ceremonies Tim Turi hosts, along with Kyle Hilliard, the elusive Matt Bertz, and special guest Brent Weinbach. Brent makes his living as a comedian, hosts a podcast about video game music, and has a new album coming out this week. The rest of us are just lowly Game Informer editors. As always, stick around for the roulette. It's a weird one, but it's one you have probably heard of.

One of the most memorable video game theme songs too.
Uniracers (as strange as it may be) actually looks like an... okay game.
Yes. YES! That is all.
I actually have very fond memories of Uniracers. My brother and I used to play it for hours. Yeah, that is totally possible. I haven't played it terribly much in recent years, but I do go back to it every once in a while to just have some stupid unicycle fun.
This was a weak Replay, it was too short and you could have used passwords to show off one of the late levels of Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
A game about unicycles? What's next, a game about a gun-wielding piece of pizza?
This game was one of my favorites growing up (although I couldn't ever get past this level where you had to save hostages from the many Creatures From the Black Lagoon). My most prominent memory of the game doesn't come from the game itself, though. When I was about eight my mom asked me if I were playing "The Neighbors Ate My Zombies." Best name for a video game ever.
I still play this game!
I remember a big marketing push for Uniracers, or at least it being on the cover of a ton of magazines. Even back then I thought, why?!
Fun fact: Uniracers was developed by DMA Design Ltd which would later become to be known as Rockstar North.
Both of these games are blasts from my childhood. ZAMN was a staple of our household when my brother and I borrowed it from a friend for a few weeks. It gets better and better and is an incredible multiplayer game for those that give it a legitimate shot. It seemed like Bertz and Kyle were enjoying it, but were completely unprepared for how to play. Also, for having Weinbach on the replay I was expecting some talk about the game's music, which I've always thought was creative and fun, playing on horror and sci-fi tropes.
Uniracers was a rental for us as kids and I remember having a lot of fun with it, especially once you get the stunts down. Vs mode is tough because you can't really see the track very well, but single player is a different experience and much easier to get a hang of and have fun with.
Great choices, just wish there had been a little bit of preparation for ZAMN. I'd actually really love a ZAMN Super Replay, because the game has a ton of variety and gets pretty tough towards the end. It has a password system every 5 levels or so and would be quite a challenge, but I think it would be entertaining. Sorry for the novel.
It felt like an episode of You're Doing It Wrong when the unicycle lost the track and started having a seizure. Funniest moment!
i remember renting uniracers.. good stuff
Amazing! I've been waiting for this one :D
I loved this game!
Oh geez. ZAMN is one of my all time favorite games, my second favorite SNES game after ALTTP. Over 50 levels, crazy hard and awesome references.
