  • Blog Post: Replay – Clock Tower

    The Clock Tower series made its debut in North America back '97 on the PS1, quickly becoming a cult classic. The gameplay focused on running and hiding instead of brawn, and excelled by combining elements of survival horror and adventure games. Clock Tower introduced us to Scissorman and swapped... More
  • Blog Post: PS1 RPGs That Should Be On PSN

    The PlayStation Store’s “classics” section has been a great way to reunite with games from your past. Games that I thought I’d never get to experience again, such as Xenogears and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, have surfaced through the store. As an RPG fan, I’m always eagerly... More
  • Blog Post: Reflecting On Persona’s Growth And New Ventures

    This week, Atlus USA confirmed four new Persona games are coming to our shores. From another fighting game to a dance-party rhythm title, these spin-offs are showing just how much the franchise has grown throughout the years. While Persona will always be entrenched in its RPG roots, it’s interesting... 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: Nostalgia Corner: '90s Nickelodeon Games

    The early '90s brought a slew of beloved Nickelodeon shows that are still talked about to this day. From the crazy game shows, Guts and Double Dare , to zany cartoons like Rocko's Modern Life and The Ren and Stimpy Show , the network dominated kid's TV programming, making the '90s often... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Jedi Power Battles

    In honor of my time with Game Informer coming to a close, the crew let me pick the Replay this week – and for some reason I took pity on staff and viewer alike by not picking some obscure hardcore PC strategy game from the '80s. Jedi Power Battles is a surprisingly good co-op brawler from the... More
  • Blog Post: Moments: The End Of The World In Grandia

    Grandia was the first RPG that kept me awake at night. The skillful way in which the player is rewarded for getting through dungeons and other various enemy-infested areas is something I have rarely seen done well. Game Arts made sure that any time you were fighting battle after battle and trekking through... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Parasite Eve

    In this episode of Replay, we take a trek with the famed Aya Brea from Parasite Eve. A PS1 horror/RPG hybrid, Parasite Eve made its mark with its strong female lead and backdrop of New York City. In the video below, we take a look at the opening. Yes, that includes the infamous opera scene. So sit back... More
  • Blog Post: PS1 RPG Classics That Hold Up

    Going back to your favorite game over a decade later can be tough. You realize that the graphics that you once thought were the most gorgeous to grace your screen are not only unimpressive, but downright ugly. Gameplay systems often crumble under the weight of years and stories just don’t carry... More
  • Blog Post: Looking Back On Sony's Hardware Evolutions

    In preparation for whatever Sony is planning on showing us tonight, we're looking back on all of Sony's previous home console iterations. Maybe looking back at these will give us an idea of what to expect, or maybe it will just be a fanciful trip down memory lane. PlayStation - The system that... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Fox Hunt

    I harbor a dark secret: Despite their goofiness and lack of actual, engaging gameplay, I have a serious soft spot for full-motion video (or FMV) games. So imagine my surprise when Capcom community manager and friend of Replay Brett Elston informed me of an FMV game for the PS1 that I had never heard... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Doom

    Doom is the grandfather of the modern shooter, originating many of the things we've come to know and love about gory first-person experiences. But does it still hold up today? Yep. The PlayStation 1 port? Maybe not as much. Join Jeff Marchiafava, Joe Juba, Andrew Reiner, and I as we blast through... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Army Men 3D

    The Army Men series has always had a reputation for being among the worst of the worst as one of the earliest and most blatant offenders in the realm of franchise fatigue. But just how bad was this series? We went back to 1999's Army Men 3D to find out. Join Joe Juba, Matt Helgeson, Tim Turi, and... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Wild 9

    While Wild 9 may not get quite as much love as other Shiny-developed games, such as Earthworm Jim and MDK, it has a cult following of its own. Tim Turi, Dan Ryckert, Andrew Reiner, and I decided to finally tackle this highly-requested game on this week's edition of Replay. Watch as both Dan and Tim... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain

    In this week's replay, we explore the humble (and kind of sluggish) beginnings to a long-forgotten franchise that once held a special place in our hearts. Join me, Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves, and Joe Juba as we boot up the PlayStation action-RPG Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain. And as always, stay tuned... More
