  • Blog Post: From First To Last – Comparing Developers’ Early Work To Later Work

    Development studios, even highly successful ones, like to change things. As the old adage goes (I assume), if it ain’t broke, try something different to see if that also works. Studios like Naughty Dog may have made a name for themselves with a jumping cartoon bandicoot named Crash, but that doesn’t... More
  • Blog Post: Which Controller Is The Loudest? Sounding Off On Controller Noise

    Recently, while making my way through Infamous Second Son as the rest of my household was asleep, I could distinctly hear my controller echoing through the house. It wasn't from the speaker built into the controller I always forget is there that periodically emits noise to remind you of its existence... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Mario Party 2

    One of the things that distinguishes Mario Parties from other celebrations is that Mario Parties do not stop. OK, while that may not be technically true, it does feel like Mario Parties go on forever. Join Reiner, Joe, Tim, and me as we send Dan off in style. As you learn in the beginning of the episode...

  • Blog Post: Replay – Castlevania: Legacy Of Darkness

    A few years back, Replay fans watched in horror as Tim Turi, Game Informer's resident Dracula enthusiast, struggled mightily to play Castlevania 64 , a game he remembered fondly from his childhood. Today, we're hoping to destroy another one of Tim's memories with a deep dive into Castlevania... More
  • Blog Post: A Look Back At Decades Of Bizarre Nintendo Videos

    If Nintendo’s recent Tomodachi Life and E3 announcements are any indication, the company is slowly losing its mind, and it has cameras on hand to capture the insanity – not that we’re complaining. Nintendo’s recent announcements have been as entertaining as they are bizarre, but... More
  • Blog Post: Four Games With Aliens That Should Be Buried In A Landfill And Excavated In 30 Years

    Today, plans culminated to unearth a collection of E.T. Atari cartridges from a New Mexico landfill . It was a game starring an alien that was absolutely terrible and had a hand in the collapse of the video game industry in the '80s. Some games with aliens turn out fantastic. Some, as E.T. can attest... 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 – Body Harvest

    Grand Theft Auto III was the first entry in the series to feature a 3D open world, but it wasn't the first time that the development team tackled the concept. That honor goes to the N64 game Body Harvest, which DMA Design released three years before GTA III. Watch as Reiner, Dan, Tim, and I go on... More
  • Blog Post: Dream Project: The Secret History Of Banjo-Kazooie

    Every game goes through an evolutionary process during development, but Rare's N64 platformer Banjo-Kazooie changed so much during development that it became an entirely different game. Banjo-Kazooie was one of the N64's premiere platformers, and some people argue that it sits up there with titles... More
  • Blog Post: Editorial: My Personal Trade-In Woes

    Left to their own devices, kids don’t always make the best decisions. Children are often attracted to newer and shinier toys, leaving their old favorites behind to collect dust (e.g., the entire plot of Toy Story). However, some kids don’t just tuck away their old toys. Instead, they cash... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Mischief Makers

    This week we take a look at an old Nintendo 64 title you may not have taken the time to check out during the system's glory days. This gem by Treasure has players assume the role of a robotic maid-thing that hurts enemies by shaking the crap out of them. It's inventive, cute, and an overall good... More
  • Blog Post: The Nintendo Difference: Nintendo’s Impact On Gaming

    Nintendo has been involved in the video game industry for nearly four decades, and the company hasn’t remained as popular as it has by following other people’s lead. Nearly every generation, Nintendo has led a charge of innovation that has fundamentally reshaped the gaming world. These innovations... More

    Look, up in the air! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's...a bunch of disgruntled editors playing one of the worst video games ever created. In our recurring exploration of all the old games packed into Game Informer's vault , it was inevitable that we attempt to take on Superman 64, one... More
