The lights are on
The Sega Genesis really hit full stride in the 90s with a handful of amazing Disney games. Among all those amazing Mickey games and excellent licensed Aladdin and Lion King games, there was the stellar adventure of Donald Duck doing his best Indiana Jones impression. Join three of the biggest (read: only) Quackshot fans in the Game Informer office as we plunger-gun our way through Duckberg, Mexico, and Transylvania in this under-appreciated gem.
In case you're wondering who the last crusaders of Quackshot are, it's Andrew Reiner, Dan Ryckert, and myself. In this episode we rediscover Donald's unconventional but useful firearm, zip across the roofs of Duckberg, and tip-toe through a strangely spooky stealth segment.

"Kinda cute for a cartoon chipmunk, let's not kid ourselves." Made my whole day!
Are the Berenstain Bears Jewish? There's black bears, brown bears, polar bears, and panda bears, but I've never heard of Jewish bears before.
Man oh man - between Donald/Scrooge and Mickey, who has the better gaming career? Well, if you count Scrooge, than it's no contest - both Ducktales put the Ducks over the top. But if it's just Donald - and you have to throw out Magical Quest 3 AND World of Illusion because they BOTH star Mickey & Donald - I think you gotta give it to Mickey.
Great Donald games: Quackshot, Maui Mallard, ???
Okay Donald Games: Disney's PK, Donald Duck's Playhouse (if you're a little kid from the 80's), Deep Duck Trouble, The Lucky Dime Caper, Donald Duck: Goin' Quackers (Dreamcast version, at least, is okay)
Great Mickey games: Castle of Illusion, Mickey Mouse Magic Wands (Game Boy), Magical Quest, Great Circus Mystery (Magical Quest 2), Mickey Mania, Epic Mickey
Y'know what? Disney needs to get on more Donald games. They have Avalanche (Toy Story 3), Junction Point (Epic Mickey) and Wideload (Stubbs the Zombie, Guilty Party) making their games nowadays. Any one of those guys should be making a Donald platformer now.
This was a cool episode of Replay. It defintely lead to some strange conversations such as the attractiveness of cartoon mice (she is cute) and the truth about sucidal bears.
I'm just curious though, has Replay switched to three people only? Where is the fourth person such as Phil or Joe?
If there is going to be an Aladdin replay, I vote for the Genesis version.
I probably mentioned that before, but it's my preferred choice. I wouldn't mind if the snes version *happened* to be the replay....
i don't know if anyone has said this yet, but pete is actually a cat.
I am 30 I remember playing this all the time :)
Did I just hear Arby's hat? It's a mitten (or whatever), not a hat. I thought it was a hat myself for years until I saw one of their commercial where the mitten turns into their sign.
Also Gadget Hackwrench was a mouse, and who didn't have a crush on her? XD
i dont know if this has been brought up before (it better have been) but you guys should do a super replay of donkey kong country.
I'm sure someone has made this joke already, but I don't care: I would like to see a Pong replay, just to see if you guys can make a 30 minute video of only you playing Pong.
OMG lol the suicide pact. Taht would be a GREAT book lol.
Oh lawd, I hate Quackshot with a fiery passion!
I played the game back before I could be bothered with that whole "reading" thing, and left my Genesis on for like two weeks after getting the Green Plunger because I had no idea how I'd gotten so far. Then, of course, a friend comes over a resets it, just because he wanted to see how mad I got. That was probably my first experience with "Nerd Rage", actually...
Seriously though, when we gonna see a Mega Man X replay, sir(s)? Or Sonic Adventure or Phantasy Star Online; get some Dreamcast love up in herr!
And that grieving bear grew up to be a chain-smoking alcoholic in a back ally selling sega posters to stay alive.
You guys have to replay mickey mouse great circus mystery for the NES.
