  • Blog Post: Replay – Toy Commander

    Odds are you've never seen Godzilla wearing a bunny outfit, unless you played No Cliché's excellent Dreamcast title Toy Commander. We take a look at this charming game in this week's episode with special guest and Replay sensation Aram Jabbari. Our adventure takes us to a cat's... More
  • Blog Post: Celebrating Lesser-Known Horror Games

    Recognizable horror franchises like Silent Hill and Resident Evil are adored by fans, but what about the scary games that didn’t receive much time in the spotlight? This Halloween, instead of giving you the predictable “Best Horror Games” list, I wanted to shine a light on some under... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Omikron: The Nomad Soul

    Long before he cast Ellen Page in Beyond: Two Souls and created the Origami Killer in Heavy Rain, David Cage worked with famed musician David Bowie in Omikron: The Nomad Soul. While we never played as Ziggy Stardust as we moved from body to body, you can follow the misadventures of myself, Dan, Jeff... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Jet Grind Radio

    "Cel shading" is a term that's been tossed around frequently for over a decade, but gamers in the 90s had never heard of the unique graphical style. With the 2000 release of Jet Grind Radio, the style that would go on to be used in The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and many more games... More
  • Blog Post: Time Sinks – Phantasy Star Online

    I first read about Phantasy Star Online as a news blurb in a gaming magazine. There was very little information other than “it is coming” and you can “play online with other people”. The sci-fi and fantasy blend of the Phantasy Star world was one that I had already spent countless... More
  • Blog Post: Time Sinks – Soul Calibur

    A console’s launch day is always an exciting time for gamers, and most purchasers of a new system prefer to go home with a handful of games. When the Dreamcast launched in 1999, I landed on four titles: Sonic Adventure, NFL 2K, Ready 2 Rumble, and Soul Calibur. Despite never having played Soul... More
  • Blog Post: Super Replay – Dynamite Cop

    On March 6, Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves, and myself made our weekly visit to the Vault to pick a game to play for Replay. Reiner knelt down by the GameCube wall, Ben Reeves scoured our PSone shelves, and I looked over our Dreamcast selection. Near the top was a game that I had never heard of, but instantly... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Power Stone

    While far from a traditional entry in the genre, 1999's Power Stone was one of the most enjoyable fighters on the Dreamcast. With tons of environmental interaction, wacky weapons, and colorful characters, it managed to put forward a vibe that somewhat resembles that of Smash Bros. We decided to boot... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Shenmue

    One of the more polarizing games on the Sega Dreamcast was 2000's Shenmue. Directed by Yu Suzuki, this story-heavy action adventure title attracted many gamers but turned others off. With its slow pace, some grew tired of talking to random townspeople, participating in tedious side activities, and... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Sword Of The Berserk

    During the Playstation 2 era, gamers saw the rise of stylish and ultra-violent action games in the vein of Devil May Cry and God of War. While Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage can't touch the quality of those series, Eidos gave the genre a shot early in the days of the Dreamcast. We grabbed it... More
  • Blog Post: Last Stand: The Final Games Of The Biggest Consoles

    Many gamers consider a console dead as soon as its successor hits store shelves. While it's true that the release schedule takes a massive hit when this happens, there are always a handful of titles that arrive late to the party. Take a look at the final games released for some of gaming's biggest... More
  • Blog Post: The Console Time Capsule

    We all have (mostly) fond memories of console launches and the excitement of those early days. The sexy new graphics. The new batch of games. The untold possibilities. A handful of Game Informer editors jotted down some of their memories about those heady times. What do you think? Tell us your launch... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Sonic Adventure

    Tossing in an old Sonic title for an episode of Replay has been a long time coming. I just never thought the first one we'd play would be Sonic Adventure. Don't get me wrong - I loved Sonic Adventure when it released alongside the Dreamcast in 1999, but that games, well... it hasn't aged... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Zombie Revenge

    Zombies, zombies, zombies!!! The undead are all the rage these days, but long before the zombie renaissance Sega unleashed Zombie Revenge in 2000 on the Dreamcast. The game is set in Sega's House of the Dead series, but apparently it's questionable quality held it back from donning the prestigious... More
