The lights are on
This year's Super Replay Showdown ended with an unexpected dance-off between Ben Reeves and I. Even more unexpected was my fleet-footed rise to victory, but my triumph comes at a terrible toll; I now have to grind my way through the original NES installment of Ninja Gaiden, an infuriatingly challenging platformer whose unrelenting annoyances are matched only by the stupid cackling of GI's resident clown, Dan Ryckert.
Will I be able to overcome the multistage boss battle waiting for us at the end of Ninja Gaiden's long and treacherous road? Will I be able to resist the constant urge to bludgeon Dan to death with my microphone? We can only take it one episode at a time, but I'm putting the odds for both at 50/50.
Join Andrew Reiner, Bryan Vore, Dan Ryckert, and I for the inaugural episode of what may very well be the first never-ending Super Replay.

I still want Indigo Prophecy. Good luck on this, Fava. You can do it!
I can't bring myself to watch this right now.
I cant beat this game. I have tried again and again but cant deal with having to go back to 6-1 and go through the hardest level in the game(6-2)after losing to the final boss. I wish them the best of luck
for as much as i loved all the ninja gaiden on my nes, my loved one was my sega master system version. i still play it today...
I'm so excited this is going to be awesome!
Finally a Super Replay worthy of my time. J/k
I absolutely LOVE the Nintendo Ninja Gaiden trilogy. It was the first game I ever played to feature cut-scenes, and it's so challenging and fluid. I LOVE it.
SEGA's Shinobi is also a work of art, specially IV.
AWESOME NEW SUPER REPLAY.
