The lights are on
In December of 2001, a new RPG series hit the scene for PlayStation 2, entitled Shadow Hearts. With its Lovecraftian horror and distorted take on historical events and characters, the franchise was a unique, dark, and unpredictable. In this episode of Replay, we take a look the first Shadow Hearts, the entry that brought us protagonist Yuri Hyuga and his quest to protect exorcist Alice Elliot.
Since the franchise is very near and dear to my heart, I've been waiting to show it off to my fellow staffers. Unfortunately, it doesn't go completely as planned. Watch below as Andrew Reiner, Joe Juba, Dan Ryckert, and I react to how Yuri's love for Alice began. Also stick around to see an awesome roulette pick by our very own video producer Jason Oestreicher. Get ready to see some crazy things. After all, we have Joe Juba and Dan Ryckert in the same room, and they make an announcement.

I have never played this one
It's good to see a relay of this worthy game.
Never played this one but I loved Covenant and From the new World. Wish they would bring this series back.
(hopefully I'll be able to watch the whole thing before I have to go to my Zumba class)
Awesome replay choice, do Custom Robo next. It's one of my favorite games ever.
great episode. looking forward to the Tyson showdown part II.
Never heard of this game, but it does look pretty cool. Hope it comes to PSN someday. I been trying to load up on PS/PS2 RPG's.
Another great replay episode guys! I'm sure I would have loved that werewolf game as a kid, but to your credit those electric laser parts did look pretty tough. Thanks for putting a date on the Tyson Showdown, I look forward to seeing the conclusion to this epic battle.
"After all, we have Joe Juba and Dan Ryckert in the same room, and they make an announcement."
Are they finally admitting their love for each other?
Oh man I love this game, and how absurd it and the second one can get. Never tried the third one sadly.
Can't wait for Joe's time of judgement against Tyson.
