The lights are on
Back in the dark days of the original PlayStation, a secret cabal of the game industry's most talented creators spent a weekend secluded together in a dark catacomb, attempting to concoct an idea for the greatest video game ever (to feature comedian Dana Gould). The result? Gex: Enter the Gecko.
On this week's episode of Replay, Tim Turi, Ben Reeves, Andrew Reiner, and I look back on one of the most popular platformers that has totally faded away in the generations following its release. Does Gex still hold up? (Not exactly.) Will Ben die a bunch? (You know it.) Will any of us survive one of the most atrocious choices for a Replay Roulette yet? (Barely!) Tune in and see for yourself.

I remember playing this game on the N64. I had so much fun playing it.
YES! I was hoping you guys would do a replay of this!
Great replay. i remember playing the demo for the second Gex and it was pretty good. but that was like 10 years ago so im probably wrong. Also BABY JAGUAR!! That end was hilarous
"Thats not a baby Jaguar, thats a wolf. Ouwhoo!" Great replay guys. 10/10 for Sabrina the teenage witch - a twitch in time :P
Another great replay, keep it up!
Donkey Kong 64 for next super replay!
Man i think you guys are hilarious all i want for my birthday is to be on a replay, and the 3DS comes out around the same time too.
Whoa...this episode turned out a little dirty >.>
Oh my goodness. I loved gex!! I played it for the 64 and i loved it!! I never got past the level with the electic pig boss. I got the guide to it and then started crying because i wasnt even half way through the game. (I was like 8 at the time).
final fantasy mystery quest for the snes. thought i new all the FF games till i saw this at a flea market allmost bought it just cuz it was FF but the guy on the front looked like megaman lol didnt wanna spend the scratch on an unknown property
great replay guys gex was a fun game and sabrina looked as godawful as i expected it would! baby jaguar! lmao
That Replay Roulette was terrible. I'm glad Gex was so bizzare, because that was a bit on the boring side for the gameplay. The jokes were great though and that made this worth watching.
You guys should totally reply Tonic Trouble for n64.. It would make me happy =)
I loved the replay. If Pandamonium and the Crow were to have a baby, and that baby managed to grow up; it would be Sabrina the Teenage Witch
You guys should do Mischief Makers for the N64!
I played this game a lot back then but I don't think I finshed it, but I think there was a titanic level in there somewhere you could find.
That was amusing. I got Gex 3 on my PSP right now and I remember playing Enter the Gex on N64 when I was a kid. And yeah I would definitely play an HD remake of Gex. I love the humor aspect.
Hahaha...Gex Enter the Gecko. I've played it and remember having a somewhat decent enough time but the camera was so annoying. Watching that replay almost made me cough up my food as I was laughing so hard.
You guys just made me think of all kinds of weird titles now for Replay.
Namely, Blasto, Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, and Rise of the Robots.
This was actually one of my favorite games of all time, then, there was no sequals. I'll still play this game and have tons of fun, but it will just never be the same. And funny enough, I still have this game today, just no Playstation.
