The lights are on
In this week's episode of Replay, I refer to Rare's Xbox-era beat-em-up Grabbed by the Ghoulies as a "classic" on several occasions. My love of Rare aside, let it be known that Grabbed by the Ghoulies is not, in reality, a classic. What went wrong with Rare's first game for Microsoft? Andrew Reiner, Dan Ryckert, and Tim Turi join me to find out.
Watch the full episode below and then head on over to the Replay hub to view all our past Replays.
Sooo Playing a game with your ass isn't normal?
EPIC FAIL on my part
This is when Rare started churning out crap...
It was a sad day for gamers everywhere
Grabbed by the ghoulies is ripped of of Splatterhouse... and cinnamon
replays of sh***y games are always funnier
Great episode! Nice combo of little played games, though not necessarily little known (a LOT of people knew of, and were disappointed by, Grabbed by the Ghoulies). Some really funny things to take a look at - I just wish you guys went into another hallway with Cooper and had him suffer a heart attack or whatever it was that would've happened to him. That definitely should of been the way you guys ended this one. Other than that, this was pretty awesome.
I have a feeling that there are A LOT more Xbox 1 games worthy of a replay. From Wreckless:the Yakuza Missions to Voodoo Vince to Brute Force - nothing but experimental games from original properties that didn't stick for various reasons. Also, fun fact: Digital Anvil - the team that did Brute Force - actually features in the credits for Perfect Dark Zero pretty heavily. So if anyone's wondering why that game was...less than spectacular, I'd blame those guys:)
you should do marvel nemisis rise of the imperfects because the multiplayer on that was too good for words
Nice replay. How can you beat a game mashing it against your ass? Backwards? Funny. I saw a defined nipple in replay roulette too. Partial Nudity anyone? I'll stay tuned for more ass play lol.
Ass play! ULTRALOL!
What is with all the hate toward this game? I love it to death! Sure, it's not a grand adventure like Banjo-Kazooie or Star Fox Adventures, but it's a load of fun!
you guys should do more xbox games so we can see how little 360 has come in terms of graphics.
That was the longest dang hallway I have ever seen. By the way Banjo looked demented.
this game blows
Beating the skeletons with the pool cue reminded me of "Shaun of the Dead".
Also... Super Replay on Halo 1!
since this is rare we're talking about "cough" "cough" Conker' Bad Fur Day...
What? I hate you guys now. I'm cancelling my subscription. Grabbed By The Ghoulies is my favorite game of all time. ***. You.
When Rare developed Viva Pinata, there's another example of Rare acknowledging that Grabbed By The Ghoulies was a bad game. When you first start off in your garden for Viva Pinata, you have to destroy the trash in your garden. One piece of trash is a Grabbed By The Ghoulies arcade system. At least Rare admits it!
Not that you guys mention "Ape Escape," you should do a Replay on it. Maybe a Super Replay if it's not too long. That was one of my first Playstation games and I can remember some fond memories of it. That's the first game I went for 100% completion. I got all the monkey's and beat the final boss. I think it could be fun.
Dude... that was hilarious.
The Future of Gaming. ASS!
