The lights are on
Grand Theft Auto III was the first entry in the series to feature a 3D open world, but it wasn't the first time that the development team tackled the concept. That honor goes to the N64 game Body Harvest, which DMA Design released three years before GTA III. Watch as Reiner, Dan, Tim, and I go on a bug hunt and learn a thing or two about maps.
Body Harvest was a long-delayed game that featured a hero who could battle buglike invaders on foot or in a variety of vehicles. It hasn't aged particularly well, but it was ridiculously ambitious for the time (1998) Our adventure meanders a bit, thanks in part to a few issues with the game's navigation system (Tim was on the sticks!). As bad as we thought the UI was in Body Harvest, it did little to prepare us for the roulette game. That one's an indecipherable mess that must be seen to be believed.

That screenshot...oh, god. I'm grabbing some popcorn, and watching this out of morbid curiosity :P.
Sweet moses this is going to be good.
That replay roulette game looked terrible.
I love every intro to Replay.. every one of them. Reiner's voice sets the mood so well.
Oh god, how old is this ish?
I actually still own body Harvest. I bought it when it came out. I was about 10. I saw it in the store and it had a cool name. I thought it was an ok game. Maybe I should dig it out and play it again.
So.... when is the Starshot super replay?
Oh nice, I actually used to really like this game at the time.

So, Cyberia 2 Super Replay soon?
