The lights are on
In this episode of Replay, we take a trek with the famed Aya Brea from Parasite Eve.
A PS1 horror/RPG hybrid, Parasite Eve made its mark with its strong female lead and backdrop of New York City. In the video below, we take a look at the opening. Yes, that includes the infamous opera scene. So sit back, relax, and join host Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves, Dan Ryckert, and myself as we explore why operas aren't always boring.
Also, stick around to experience the first battles of our Super Replay Showdown tournament. If you're unfamiliar with Super Replay Showdown, or want to see the choices again, click here.
For this week, Bryan, Ben R. and Dan face-off, while Kyle and I showdown in a way we least expected. Who are the big winners? Watch the video already!

TIIIIM, change your Showdown game to Parasite Eve II !!!!
This was/is my favorite game series of all time.
Great Showdown. I personally loved the sing-off.
Kim and Kyle I'm sorry you had to go through that, but it was hysterical. Nice job guys!
Aw man parasite eve 1 & 2 was great back in the day. And this was my first time watching a tournament between Game informer staffs and I must say it was quite entertaining although I do wish you all were abit more competitive amongst each other. Like pretend you're up for a gold or something. Nevertheless original and you all out shine the rest...
Honestly Kim wasn't bad and it was hilarious because of how angry Kim got,still I kinda wanted Dan to win.
Wow...really glad to see how that first showdown turned out. And the second showdown between Kim and Ben, well that was interesting. By the way, you two weren't as bad as you think you are. Congrats to the winners.
Great Episode of Replay. I loved the Parasite Eve series.
Also, wonderful first round for the Super Replay Showdown! Congrats Kim! i hope you keep moving on. No need to be embarrassed about that one lol.
Bwahaha that was great, Hanson is great at choosing games for the showdown.
1) Kimberly Wallace is charming as hell.
2) *** you Dan!
I really loved this game back in the day. It was my first exposure to what an RPG was, and it blew my mind having never played anything like it before.
It's about time this popped up on replay! such a great series
These guys should do a goosebumps super reply! Attack of the mutant http://youtu.be/XDvLppdl91I i love goosebumps and just thinking about it this is my first horror game! XD
Also i bet Kim felt weird being around the guys while they have guy conversations XD
AH I love this game. Such a classic.
Does anyone know what the song is they use for the beginning of the Replay Showdown? It's pretty good.
Parasite Eve looks really cool. Think I'll grab it over PSN if I get a few extra bucks.
Congrats to the winners of the Showdown!
I didn't think Kim and Kyle were bad singers. I thought they sounded awesome once they hit the high note simultaneously. :P
Who will reign victorious?
I got chills during the sing off. What a bout.
Hahaha good ole Crash Bash, quite underrated and tons of fun. I played the hell out of it back in the day. I had a feeling Dan would be taken out fast. LMAO on the singing battle Kimmm :p
