The lights are on
Talk to anyone who's played through Psychonauts, and you're bound to hear one of two things: "That game was awesome!" or "The meat circus can go #@% itself!"
Majesco released Double Fine's game in 2005 on the Xbox, with a port coming shortly afterward on the PlayStation 2. One of my favorite parts of the game is how each of the levels – which take place in another individual's mind – are cosmetically unique from each other. Some offer completely different gameplay, too, which I won't spoil here for people unfamiliar to the series. All you need to know is that Psychonauts is awesome, and the meat circus isn't really all that bad.
As always, we'll be updating this Super Replay on Sundays and Thursdays until the end credits roll. Let us know what you think in the comments!

Who needs friends when you've got the Replay crew? Keep crankin', editors, you just keep turning that crank so all the Replay juice keeps flowing out onto my laptop. Yum!
I think you should force Tim to be a part of this Super Replay, and strap him in like Alex from "A Clockwork Orange", constantly reminding him what a good game looks like and how he'll never play a good game again for Super Replay; but that's just me.
Every time Dan is on a replay/test chamber/super replay, makes a world of difference. He's awesome and the jokes and what not he deals out is worth while. Thanks y'all! Awesome! And also having Kim on this episode really makes it so much fun! Holla! lol.
If duck tales came out in any other form then what it did, it would have probably been condemned for it. I'm sure someone's child hood would be ruined because of it.
Looks like Jeff's almost caught up to where I am. Time to hop back on before next Thursday.
negative Nancy or positive Percy?
It will always be one of my favorite games ever.
One of my favorite video games. Hope we get a sequel one day.
Episode 5 was great imo. Even with only four people the color commentary was great.
Oddly enough, I've been watching a lot of Mr. Bean on Netflix recently, feeling the nostalgia.
The best level in the game is the Milkman Conspiracy.
I'm very much enjoying this super replay. It's a nice mixture if weird, but playable and interesting. It's hard to pay attention to the banter and the cut Scenes at the same time though, but that's ok it's what the rewind is for. :)
Definitely one of my favorite Super Replays thus far, mainly due to the top-notch quality commentary. Comedy gold, fellas, keep it coming. Love how Reiner got legitimately miffed when Dan was (rightfully) mocking Dr. Who. I can't really talk, though, I've loved Star Trek since I was a wee lad.
I'm an episode or two behind, but I simply must say that Dan made my day with his list of dead people in Episode 4. Especially when he mentioned Caesar.
I hope you guys get to The Milkman Conspiracy in this episode, because that's where I'm stuck right now. I've found shears, a watering can, a rolling pin and a stop sign, but I don't know where to go next.
