The lights are on
It's been a while since we saw our ol' buddy Pac-Man. What better way to welcome him back than to mercilessly pelt him with yellow spheres. Don't worry, he takes it pretty well. See for yourself in this new episode of Replay.
Dan takes the controls on this episode, and Reiner, Tim, and I watch with glee as he nearly devolves into a quivering mess. Spoiler: Dan has neither patience nor interest in reading tutorials. As you'll see, those are both traits that would have helped in this strange mix of an adventure and action game. Poor Pacs.
We've also got a roulette that proves to be a bit better than we'd anticipated, Just a bit.

I loved pacman 2... still have it. Its not that hard to get pacman to do what you want, Dan your my fav. on GI but this time you were a true idiot. The look makes him look in the direction you tell him to look and the sling shot makes him notice specific details.
This is the first time Iv been frustrated while watching Replay
for crying out loud dan...Pacman 2 is not hard. I usually give dan the benefit of the doubt when he cant figure something out, but damn...to get passed that rock all you had to do is tell pacman to look down...and to get the milk bottle you just had to be standing in front of it while you pelted the bird with the sling shot. yeeeesh!
Hysterical episode of Replay! Thanks for the laughs this week.
Wow. Pac-Man has an awful life.
Hilarious video, gentlemen.
Casper's face made me crack up.
There's just something about seeing a frustrated and confused Dan that makes me feel better about my gaming abilities. Another very enjoyable edition of Replay.
OMG Dan playing this game is awful to watch.
No thanks to either game. >_<
I would have tried shooting the free sign to make the milk jar fall down for pac-man to grab.
Can you guys do a Replay of Skies Of Arcadia. I want to see what it looks like, just because Vyse was in All-Stars Racing Transformed.
Man, if only you could buy Game Informer commentary and play it along with any new game. That'd be terrific.
**BRAAAHHHH**, Dan. You don't read the short on-screen tutorial, you don't read Pac-Man's bubbles, you don't even seem to comprehend what you're doing, and then you get frustrated at the game? I imagine you'd get a similar experience trying to win a race with your brake glued to the floor.
If you'd remained positive and joked around like usual, this might have been a bearable Replay. As it stands though, I'm surprised they even posted this one. You're just embarrassing yourself, man.
I will admit that it is funny to hear Dan getting impatiently frustrated with Pac-Man 2. I will also admit that I have never played this game before and certainly can tell that it is difficult to be patient to play.
I remember how I loved this pac-man game as a little kid!
This actually looks like a lot of fun! I will be looking for this game at some of the local stores around here. Dan was hilarious throughout this game. It was one of the more comical Replays recently. The roulette looked boring but also had some neat ideas for it. You guys should really do a Bomberman Replay. I have been going crazy with that series recently.
That Pac-Man game looked God-awful. I'm with Dan.
