The lights are on
Here at Game Informer, we have a staff of experienced gamers that have played and defeated just about every game you can imagine. However, we were utterly defeated by one particular title last summer...1997's Overblood. I had the main game picked for our Revolution X episode of Replay, but I needed to grab something from the vault for our Roulette game. I scanned the Playstation section and spotted Overblood, an EA-published game that I had never even heard of. What followed was perhaps the most unsuccessful moment of our gaming careers, and it was all caught on tape. With Tim at the controls and Reiner, Matt Helgeson, and myself trying to figure out what to do, we froze to death in the very first room of the game.
Well, we're back for revenge. We vow to play through the entirety of this completely forgettable survival horror title, and we're giving you lucky readers the chance to watch the drama unfold. Enjoy.
1/10 UPDATE: The password thing might have gotten messed up since people posted them in the comments, but our readers have put together a Facebook group for people that watched all six parts. Join and mourn the loss from Part 2 with others that know your pain.
1/12 UPDATE: Yeah, we got us some Pipo shirts.
Check out all our other Replays at our hub.

It's official. The "I Watched the Entire Overblood Super Replay" Facebook group has reached 800 members! Anyone who watches this, join the group so we can hit 1,000 members by this Super Replay's anniversary! Disciples of Pipo, unite!!!
Wow like I don't even know where to start. WIENERLESS STEVE was hilarious, and honestly throughout the thing the Pipoooooooo jokes were great. Milly, great gal. And yes the he does look a lot like the "Tool Time" guy. I wish you could use the Allen Wrench more, and did he whine out? Meilehahahha? *** that Afterburner kill was legit! Alright seriously, this was awesome I enjoyed every part of it. So funny, all of it had me just cracking up with the knocking around, and the Pipo references. I looked up Overblood on Wikipedia. You guys need to look at the "Characters" cause it has him down as Wienerless Steve, lol. And actually the last part with Pipo was kinda depressing aha. Great DJ on the 5 episode. ahaha. Nice done on the montage. And what was up with the Flutes, and Trumpets? ahaha Great SUPER REPLAY!!! I loved it! Cant wait for more! Thank you for having this!! =D
This is wonderful. It wouldn't be as fun if the game was bad, and it isn't. It's more just that the production values, structure and style come from an era that naturally gave rise to hilariously clunky gameplay and amusingly blocky visuals.
We just got 1,000 people in the Facebook group today!!! Yeah!!! And before the one-year anniversary to boot! It's been great and this was a great video to start it all.
Thank You Pipo
This was the best 6 hrs or so that i have ever spent on my computer!!
So glad that Pipo was brought up in the Super Replay of Tail Of The Sun
I just beat this game! I think it was actually pretty fun, if you don't come in with high expectations... or expectations at all... Either way I really enjoyed it. Can't wait to see you guys play the second. I think I'll have to find myself a copy of that haha
This super replay was very funny.
Old videos, but i have to comment!
Part one: Nothing like the statue death! that was freaking hilarious!
Part two: Nothing like lazer knife fighting a zombie! Also, loved the PIPOOOOO! Scream
watching this makes me want to play some terrible games for some reason, that guy got torched by that Afterburner and the Pipo montage at the end was perfect
The greatest Super Replay that ever was and ever will be. Period.
What happened to the Facebook group?
By far the best super replay yet
Pipppppoooooooo!!!!!!! Enough said.
I love how it's 3 am and I CAN'T stop watching these videos...AAAAND I have an 8 am class tomorrow...totally worth it. Blood Oven, greatest metal band ever. haha
Just finished watching 3am here in the UK
Always wanted to play this game as I played 1/2 of the sequel
Got stuck at a stupid dancing minigame at the end of disc 1 of 2
OverBlood 2 came out in Europe in English
Raz is in it as an NPC owns his own bar
I will always remember PIPO
If you could import OverBlood 2 a super replay of that would be AWESOME
