The lights are on
My love of survival horror titles is shared my much of the GI staff. Many of us soaked up every hour of Resident Evil 5's cooperative action, reveling it what many felt was the first true co-op horror experience. DreamCatcher Interactive beat Chris and Sheva to the 2-player punch with the 2004 PlayStation 2 title, Obscure. It features a ragtag crew of high school students as they investigate the death of a fellow student and battle an evil that emerges within their class halls. Is this last generation title a thrilling test of courage or a boring back to school slog?
Join Andrew Reiner, Jeff Cork, and Jeff Marchifava and myself as we enter the dark world of Obscure, and stay tuned for the Replay Roulette afterwords. It really turns up the heat.

You guys should do Mega Man X
Obscure man I remember seeing previews for Obscure everywhere and I enjoyed the game somewhat, but if you want true horror play Cabela's Alaskan Adventure best horror game ever...
I really enjoy these Replays, but would there be any way to add iPad compatibility? Nothing needed, still be happy either way. Keep up the great work.
Too bad the sequel sucked!
you need to do Mystical Ninja for the SNES because these games were horrible
hey, a reflection in a mirror! This game is already better than bioshock 2!
Not much else to say except...
Play Goof Troop!!!!!
That pale kid at the beginning of Obscure's name is Dan. :)
Reiner, the time has come for you to abuse your power! Oh yes, the only way you can truly abuse your underlings is to coerce them into a winner takes nothing, loser loses everything tournament.
I propose Mario Kart: Double Dash tournament, with the last place loser able to choose 3 other lucky loos to endure a 50 round game of Mario Party 4!
But don't stop there, make the 4th place loser of that masterful disaster of laughter write a song about their unabashed love for Mario Party. Have the carol it out in a video...
We, the readers, would be treated to so much laughter!
Make it happen. Make sure to include Joe!
"Stay tuned for the replay roulette afterwords. It really turns up the heat." I really thought you guys were gonna try your luck at Overblood again. :)
As a survival horror fan I dug it, especially since the style was a little more fresh being survival horror done in a campy teen movie atmosphere, ah good times.
Awesome replay! Now you NEED to do a super replay of Overblood!
Sweet! A friend of mine has the sequel, but I've always wondered how the first game was...
Great Replay guys! That firefighter game looked fun.
Jurassic Park Trespasser
Splatter House 2
Any horrible Barbie game
Ugh, the firefighting looks so boring...
I'm beginning to think Dan was joking when he said there would be more Overblood. It's been over a month since he said it would happen on the Mario Party 3 Replay. Regardless, this episode was great. Obscure looked pretty cool, but that fire fighting game looked like a lot of fun. If it came back and had co-op that would be awesome.
Dam, I really wanted to see those vending machines get busted open. I'm ocd like that I guess.
you guys should do the sequel too
