The lights are on
They said it would never happen. They said Phil Kollar would never come back. Those people also said the world would end on December 21. Those people obviously never engaged in a bromance. The apocalypse and over 2,000 miles of highway couldn't keep Reiner and Phil from uniting for another spectacular holiday special.
Holding to tradition, Reiner and Phil exchange gifts and take their unique bromance to a whole new level. Bears, mandrills, skateboards, and dinosaur t-shirts are all discussed in this festive look at four different games. Sit back and enjoy this reunion episode. After that, wax nostalgia with the Reiner and Phil video archive, and catch up on Phil's writing at Polygon.

Hooray! Reiner and Phil! WOOOOO!
I'm actually disappointed by this group of games. I mean, the Zoo one and Build-A-Bear both had some serious effort put into them; people who were competent worked on them. Complete trainwrecks are more fun. But dangit, Build-A-Bear looks sort of... fine. It also had an interesting control scheme, what with the direct control over the character but also the pointer control letting you mess with the environments. It's honestly kind of interesting - those MySims games probably could've used that control scheme. Or Animal Crossing, or something. There's more ambition and effort here than Nintendo's put into an Animal Crossing since the N64 one... that's messed up. But good job Neko Entertainment. You're nowhere near the worse thing Game Informer has played.
I didn't know Phil went to Polygon! Awesome! Great website.
What an awesome thing to come home and see, never thought it was going to happen again glad I've been proven wrong!
no way!! this is truly the best gift of the season.
I thought I would never see this agine awesome
it's nice to see Phil drop by hope he can do it again next year also is the a chance for an evil under the sun super replay one day?
It said on the back of the box: Animal lovers wanted. Exclamation point.
Ohhhh how I've missed your Misadventures together.
AND ALL WAS RIGHT IN THE WORLD.
Yay! Oh how I've missed this a whole lot. If only Phil could move back to Minnesota (not that I would force it). This is my Christmas gift this year. Phil, could you consider doing long-distance Phil and Reiners regularly?. It'd be sweet.
:) Pure happiness
That was Pawesome!
I came here looking for a Christmas themed Replay and instead find this?
Bravo GI, you exceeded my expectations!
I'm so glad. So much happiness in me right now!!
Great work Phil and Reiner! Those games were sooooo terrible it is awesome!
It's Reiner AND Phil!
Awesome to have Phil back on for the GI best show Reiner and Phil! I liked the first 3 out of 4 games. Hope you guys dig them until the next R&P! Have a good holiday and new year, and best of luck to Phil when he gets back to Polygon.
