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.

'Bout time Dan. Good on your girlfriend for making you watch Buffy.
this is one of the first ps2 games i played, i really liked it, both the art and the combat, i didn't care about the story
played all these games. haha its very frustrating watching whomever is playing just not hitting the judgement ring correctly. hit all the areas not just the last one jeeze!
Still not up on YouTube yet?! These keep going up later and later. Spending a relaxing Saturday afternoon eating lunch and watching Replay is one of those simple pleasures that keep me sane. WHY U DO THIS!?!?!?
"ok, zap, zap, zap, aaaaaaahhhh!" dats some funny ***. thanks again GI.
HAHA i remember really wanting to play this game back in the day. WOW
Why more child clown ryckert? He can screw up a wet dream
Perv was totally thinking about raping that girl. That Werewolf game looks awesome. I bet Joe beats Tyson within an hour and a half.
Nice to see a date for Joe Juba's turn at Mike Tyson! I also really want to see another real life replay with a Punch Out boxing match between Joe and Dan. I don't care what you do, just convince the Gameinformer and Gamestop higher ups to get on board with the idea, darnit!!!!
Geez! Is he Rude Hero, or Rape Hero?! Kim may have a fetish...
Can't wait for Joe vs. Tyson!
If you close your eyes, and just listen to Dan's excited noises over the chiptunes for the Replay Roulette, it sounds like he's into the most exciting game of Tetris ever :D
I will check this out. As RPG lover, I like what I just saw.
Great Cast! Great Replay! This was an awesome showing! THANK YOU. Dan and his noises....lol
I can't wait to watch Joe beat Tyson.
I LOVE DAN!!!!
Wonderful episode. Great cast. It's always a fun ride when Joe and Dan are in the same room. The Roulette was amazing. Would definitely like to see more of that game. And I am so stoked there is finally a date for the Joe vs Tyson event. August 8th can't come soon enough =)
