The lights are on
Back in the mid-90s, FMV games were destined to become the future of the industry. Consoles were technically capable of presenting actual images of people and environments, so why would any sucker go back to boring old sprites and polygons? Well, it turns out that being limited to actual footage limits gameplay to an excruciating degree. We learned this quickly when we booted up 1994's Corpse Killer for Sega Saturn.
Watch below to see us mow down hordes of the pixellated undead in this awful title. Be sure to stick around afterwards to see the finals of this year's Super Replay Showdown!

I'm going to watch the SR, but I'm not too excited about it.
Games like these make me really happy that FMV is dead.
Disappointment on all fronts, in my opinion.
Replay doesn't get enough Hangtime
Darn it... Hanson never gets to pick the games again.
R.I.P. Grim Fandango
Humph I really wanted to watch Ben Reeves play through Grim Fandango. Congrats to Jeff M. though, it'll be really interesting watching a play through of Ninja Gaiden.
so is ninja gaiden going to be played with save states, or will we have to watch him struggle through the final level in its entirety about a hundred times? cause this could turn into a stress test very quickly.
I'm going to predict that the last segment of the Super Replay takes at least 5 episodes. Mike Tyson has nothing on 6-2. The Super Stress Test will be amazing.
ha thats awesome. i was rooting for the winner of the showdown
We're sorry too.
Congrats JeffM, though I'm sorry you picked Ninja Gaiden. Good luck! ;)
Congrats to the winner but i am disapointed in the outcome.
Yeah I think i might skip the next super replay
Was pulling for Ben. Really wanted to see Grim Fandango in it's entirety because I can't seem to find a playable copy.
YES THANK GLOB. I don't like Ben Reeves.
Son of a b*tch!! Another mindless 2d scroller instead of a charmingly clever game. What the hell Reeves??
