The lights are on
In June, we played Batman Forever for an episode of Replay. That game had us laughing for a variety of reasons, but it was topped by the Replay Roulette that succeeded it. Featuring seemingly-random scripted deaths, the most stilted control scheme on the planet, and some awkward plot twists, it was a sure-fire candidate for a future Super Replay. Instead of sitting on the idea for long, we threw it into the PlayStation and began recording less than two months later.
Watch below to see the original team from the Roulette (Tim Turi, Jeff Cork, Andrew Reiner, and myself) attempt to conquer a game that's aged even more poorly than we expected.

This was...unexpected. Can't wait to see the whole thing! :)
This was one of the first games that I had on PSX. I was 12 at the time, and all I remember was being wowed by the graphics (although they are all prerendered). It was only 1 of 2 games we had, so obviously I played it to the end - in retrospect, it is pretty bad game.
Best part: "Woah, slice-o-matic!"
And so it begins!! I was hoping for another Super Replay of the sort, you guys are the best!
I read the title real quick and was thinking, "Oh, Syberia, I love that game." Then I looked at the screenshot. Uh oh...
I played some bizarre games during the 90's, especially on PC. Random death was a common occurrence but even I wouldn't have put up with this.
What is this shenaniganry?
Watching the gameplay for this trash reminded me. Replay Idea or Possible "You're Doing it Wrong" Idea.
Land the jet.
Let's see it Turi.
Didn't take you guys long to bite the bullet!
Hilarious first episode. Going to be another great Super Replay.
This is completely unexpected and I'm so excited to sit down and watch the first episode. I did fall in love with how funny and horrible this game was during roulette!
This is awesome...
But only one question... no Space Quest references? All I can think about watching this is freaking Space Quest.
I knew Cyberia would be a Super Replay ( a dream/nightmare come true )! I didn't think it'd be so soon; this is awesome!!!!!!! Yeah, I'm all geeked out about it.
Oh man this is going to be a great Super Replay! That turret section got me thinking that you guys should do a Replay on Star Wars Tie Fighter or X-Wing. I used to play those games all the time back when I first got a PC, they are so much fun, it would be interesting to see how they held up.
This is why I never check the GI facebook page. Suprise Super Replays are the best; making the Super Replay one of the worst games I've ever seen? YES. A thousand times yes.
yes! I can't wait to come home and watch this after work! you guys rule this game is awful.
please do an Onimusha replay
Wow, it yook my brain a moment to understand what I was seeing. This game is so horrible. I thought the Megaman legends 2 replay was next, so this is an unexpected and awesome suprize! Thanks G.I. I look forward to suffering through this one with you guys!
Ya know I was planning on being productive today. But everything changed when a new Super Replay was posted.
