The lights are on
When the gaming world turned its eye to 3D in the 32/64-bit era, some franchises made the leap gracefully. Mario and Link knocked the ball out of the park with their three-dimensional debuts, Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time. Bubsy did not make that same leap. While he was certainly no Mario or Link to begin with, this wretched platformer ensured that the snarky bobcat would become a gaming footnote at best.
Bubsy 3D was a notoriously awful title when it released in 1996, and we expected the worst when we decided to revisit it 16 years later. You can watch Tim Turi, Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves, and myself struggle with the title below, and be sure to stay tuned for the second segment.

Oh, not Bubsy 3D. lol
i want to punch hugo in the face
Bubsy looks abysmal. Also, I love the idea for Reported. Good stuff as always guys.
hahaha reported is a great idea...Hugo was amazing!!!!!!
I've always heard about this one but I've never played it. Watching now...
Can't wait to see this weeks gimmick.
You guys should have done Mountain as well :( It was the last stage you had to check out.
I liked reported much better than the second segment last week!
2 crappy games = Win! Reported is so much better than Future Replay, no offense!
Wow, that Bubsy 3D game was atrocious. I do like the idea of looking at games that never made it to the U.S., and I can't wait to see the segment's return in future episodes.
Looking at that Hugo game reminded me of a game that would have been released for the CDi players.
Now that's what I call an explosion!
You found a notoriously bad game! You win!
I don't even know what to say about the second game. Good idea for a new segment though.
7:07... Did you pick up Facebook?
