The lights are on
One of the most unique Wii titles revolved around a spider, a scorpion, and actors Billy Bob Thornton and the late Dennis Hopper. THQ released Deadly Creatures in 2009 to little fanfare, but many that played it were charmed by its quirkiness. This week, we see if that charm holds up.
Be sure to stick around for the second segment, in which we kick off this year's Super Replay Showdown. If you remember last year's inaugural tournament, you'll remember the rules. Several Game Informer editors (last year had eight entries, this year features ten) get a chance to choose the game that they'd most like to see as our next Super Replay. Then, they all compete in a tournament of random multiplayer gaming challenges to see which editor reigns supreme. Whoever wins the tournament gets to sit in on a full playthrough of the game they chose.
In this first week of the Showdown, you'll get a chance to see what games each of us will be fighting for. Also, I'm totally going to win the whole thing again.

I want Dan to win, Trespasser is a terrible game, and those make the best Super Replays.
Dan will win this Super Replay Showdown like last year! He's just that damn good!
Some pretty awesome choices for games. I'll be rooting against Dan, but must respect his choice in the era of his championship belt...
I look forward to Dan's inevitable dumb luck supporting his win.
Also, by DC's license.
I like Kim, but I HATED koudelka. Btw--when is Dan going to face mike Tyson again?
Go Tim and Dan - dinos rule!
Deadly Creatures is a good game. It was hard to play as that spider (I do not like spiders one bit), but it's certainly a Wii gem.
When Dan wins by a landslide, I'm going to imagine he's dressed like that in every video.
Hangtime! Hangtime! Hangtime!
As much as I don't want to see Dan win again and hear nothing but gloating for the next year his game looks so bad it'll be perfect for a super replay. That being said, I never beat indigo prophecy and would like to see it win as well.
Im rooting for Dan again, but i also love to see Ben Reeves or Tim win.
I'm not sure if anyone mentioned this, but there is a song about killer bees done by "The Bob's." They performed at the Oscar's one year with Seinfield's best friend (I forget his name). "The bees! The killer bees are coming! Spreading fear and terror in our land! They're always humming, never buzzing! Get out your can of spray and make a stand!"
