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!

Episode 15 was a slog to get through.
Jeff there is a more elegant way of spinning and jumping on the bars. Quit turning the stupid camera, if you would just jump as soon as you get to the next bar Raz will jump again. You should learn to count and you dont have to see the direction of the next bar.
So are we going to ignore the fact that Tim said "What's behind the meat curtain?" at the end of episode 15? I doubt he meant it like that, but that doesn't make it any less funny!
The meat circus looks like absolute hell! "Is that the difficult part?" "Nope!" Always a good sign
Does Jeff not know that there is a double jump?
As Jeff was climbing the ladder my thoughts went to...:
What a thrill
With darkness and silence through the night
I'm searching and I'll melt into you What a fear in my heart
But you're so supreme
I'd give my life
Not for honor, but for you (Snake Eater)
In my time there'll be no one else
Crime, it's the way I fly to you (Snake Eater)
I'm still in a dream of the snake eater
Someday you go through the rain
And someday, you feed on a tree frog
This ordeal, the trial to survive
For the day we see new light
Grats Jeff. You've probably added 10 more years to your look from playing (while shortening it 20) but good work.
Hooray! You did it!
On the topic of eating pet rabbits. I would. My friends dad brought home a rabbit. My friend's sister and her friends were like, "oh he is so cute." A couple days later I came over and was offered to eat some. I wasn't emotionally attached though. My stepdad did have some sheep I helped feed and raise butchered. Delicious.
So glad this ones over, bring on Cyberia 2!
I know what you mean, I too feel like there's a great weight lifted from me.
lol Jeff Oleander does not pop out of Raz's ear... not once.. you're thinking of Ford Cruller.
Great Super Replay guys! Can't wait to watch Cyberia 2!
great job jeff! it was a good game but it had a lot of annoying aspects to it. it also was well written and had a nice dark theme running underneath. great commentary and a fun super replay. look forward to the next one.
I think Jeff's written introduction perfectly described the super replay. Good job Jeff!
