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.

Obscure looks pretty cool. How did I miss this one? Going to have to see if my Game Stop has a copy. Do you have to have 2 players or can you let an AI control the other person?
Do I have to be on fire to get a cookie? lol
gah, obscure.... aftermath isn't very good either...
OMG... they killed Kenny! I though about getting Obscure but never did, the whole high-school thing seems played out in horror.
Ok Replay this time. Pretty neat choices. Still waiting for Gemini and maybe ur next horror game could be a silent hill. =)
I wish you guys would do a Super Replay on Obscure. any considerations or is it too young for a super replay just yet?
They both look pretty fun.
Super Replay Obscure
Nice Replays, enjoyed the Obscure and the Firefighter roulette. Keep up the awesome gaming guys!
Never played Obscure, but I did have Obscure:The Aftermath for a very short amount of time. The camera still sucked. I only played it for like 5 minutes. And that girl is annoying with how she says she wants to beat stuff up, but she can't attack without a weapon in her hand.
FD 18 actually looked kinda fun. Except it might get repetitive if you're just running around with a hose and giving cookies to people.
Anyway, thanks for another amusing replay, guys.
Anyone up for a Super Mario World Replay? if you have a Link to the Past, you GOTTA do SMW.
obscure is a fun game. i picked it up a while ago. good simple. i recomend two player. it gets tough.
"Looks like we've got ourselves into a really sticky situation!" Ummm... is that ANOTHER South Park reference???
i really want a co-op super replay one of these days, however Obscure is probably not the game to do it with... but i bet it's got an awesome moment or two, playing for 40 hours to find them is probably not worth it.
"This is how I say 'I love you.'" *Hits her in the head with a baseball bat* lol
An Obscure Super Replay with Jeff and Tim would be great
