The lights are on
When Eidos launched its Fresh Games label during the Playstation 2 era, their goal was to bring quirky, obscure Japanese titles to US shores. The label didn't last very long, but we can at least be thankful that it brought the fantastically weird Mister Mosquito stateside. We explore that strange game on this week's episode of Replay.
You play as the titular insect, and (as you can imagine) your duties as a mosquito involve sucking as much blood as possible from unwilling humans. And by humans, I'm specifically referring to the unfortunate Yamato family. Watch below as Andrew Reiner, Tim Turi, Joe Juba, and myself terrorize this innocent family's summer.

P.S. I hate mosquito's
the name is wierd
Ahhh these are the guys who made Legaia 2. Wish they'd make a third one, but with a bit higher production values then Fresh was know for.
Please offer Replay in another format! :-0 Flash doesn't work well at all on either of my computers. Maybe offer a MP4 so i could watch/store them on my PS3?
I would actually ind this game to be a funny and fun five minute or so game, but it couldn't be like WoW, Dragon Age, or some of that Long MMO's or RPG's. I would be interested in what it was rated since ALL THE PICS WERE OF GIRLS AND ONE WAS IN THE BATH!!!!! But all in all, it would be a pretty fun game when we were younger, when it came out.
Wow... Replay Roulette looked painful!
Great Replay, guys! I remember hearing about Mr. Mosquito a long time ago, but I never played it.
Heh, I remember you guys getting the letter telling you about the bike mode. I wanted to see the bike shoot a rocket, though!
And heh @ PO'ed. People complain about games all being the same today, but back then lots of me-too games came out trying to capture Doom and Duke3D's success.
P.S. Today's Roulette animation is broken.
I actually played this game back and in the day. It was an enjoyable distraction, but I could never get past the "boss" fight with the family's patriarch.
next replay the original boy and his blob
POd had like ass-penis monsters that crapped in your face lol.
You guys should replay Army Men: Sarges Heroes for the N64.
YAY! Another Replay!
Those butt things were very odd.
thats a fat butterfly

Here are some game suggestions.

Great choice. Great Replay. Now, when we gonna get some Sega Saturn? Or at least some other less mainstream console. Too much Sony and Nintendo... so how bout NiGHTS into Dreams?
Seriously, where are the super replays?
We start shooting the next Super Replay on Tuesday. E3 delayed our efforts, sorry!
