  • Blog Post: Replay – Alone in the Dark: One-Eyed Jack's Revenge

    Alone in the Dark: One-Eyed Jack's Revenge is the PSone adaptation of the sequel to a genuine cult PC classic. But the only thing scary about this early survival horror title is its clunky controls and loading screens that can pop out of any corner. Join Andrew Reiner, Tim Turi, Dan Ryckert, and... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Bubsy 3D

    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... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Halo: Combat Evolved

    This week we're playing Halo: Combat Evolved, the Xbox launch title that changed everything we know about life and planet Earth forever. That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but the original Halo did work wonders for the console first-person shooter scene. We check out the single player, shoot each... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Duke Nukem 3D (Guest: Randy Pitchford)

    Randy Pitchford did what many thought to be impossible by making a Duke Nukem Forever release a reality, but his history with the series goes back much further than 2011. Before Borderlands, before Brothers in Arms, and before Gearbox even existed, he put in time at 3D Realms working on Duke Nukem 3D... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Quackshot

    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:... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Ape Escape

    Long ago, in a time before every game was developed with dual analog sticks in mind, there was Ape Escape. This innovative game tasked players with capturing a tremendous amount of escaped, mischief-making monkeys, using one analog stick to control the hero and the other to swing an ape net. This old... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – NARC

    I'm not much of a political man, but I think the greatest thing to come out of Ronald Reagan's presidency has to be his "Just Say No" anti-drug campaign. I doubt it was very effective, but all I care about is the fact that it helped spawn NARC. If you haven't played it, NARC is... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Grand Theft Auto 2

    If you're on this site, you know what Grand Theft Auto is. While we're willing to bet you're familiar with GTA III and IV, there's a chance some of you out there aren't nearly as familiar with the original top-down games. It's true that the jump to 3D did wonders for Rockstar's... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Resident Evil Survivor

    Resident Evil is one of my favorite series of all time, but even this stellar series is not without its black sheep. Rotten, undead black sheep. One particularly sour title is Resident Evil: Survivor, a lightgun game for the original PlayStation... without lightgun support. The result is an awkward FPS... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Crash Bandicoot

    In the mid-90s, Nintendo had the iconic Mario and Sega had a not-quite-tarnished Sonic the Hedgehog. When Sony broke into the home console market with the original Playstation, they wanted a piece of that platforming mascot action. Enter Crash Bandicoot, an orange, spinning marsupial. He may not have... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Red Dead Revolver

    While Rockstar San Diego's amazing Red Dead Redemption isn't exactly a sequel, it's a spiritual successor to 2004's Red Dead Revolver. Originally developed by Capcom, Rockstar took the reins and made some alterations to it before its eventual release. Considering our memories of Revolver... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Altered Beast

    What better way to ring in the new year than a Replay of a Genesis classic? Sega boasted that their 16-bit system could capture the sheer arcade might of this mythological side-scrolling brawler. This short but tough game allowed players to transform into werewolves and lizardmen, and it's still... More
  • Blog Post: Super Replay – Overblood

    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... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Glover

    We've accrued a lot of Replay requests since we started the series almost a year ago. Many ask us to revisit classic games like Super Metroid or Mario 64, but sometimes fervent fans ask for something less revered...like Glover. Join Dan Ryckert, Phil Kollar, Annette Gonzalez, and I as we take a look... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Conker's Bad Fur Day

    After playing classics like Donkey Kong Country, GoldenEye 007, and Banjo Kazooie, I was prepared to follow Rare to the end. I bought 2001's Conker's Bad Fur Day for the Nintendo 64 on blind faith alone. I went in expecting another solid platforming experiences, which the developer was known... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Crystal's Pony Tale

    You've all been asking for it, so Game Informer is proud to present a replay of Crystal's Pony Tale. Will this pretty pony whinny its way to victory? Gallop alongside Andrew Reiner, Jeff Cork, Dan Ryckert, and Tim Turi as they take the reins and journey through the wondrous lands of this criminally... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!

    It sounds absurd that a boxing game is considered one of the all-time greatest NES games considering its competition on the system, but Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! deserves its place in gaming history. While other boxing titles would allow you to mash buttons until your opponent fell to the canvas,... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Super Star Wars

    Long before Knights of the Old Republic, long before Battlefront, and long before Rogue Squadron, there was Super Star Wars. This first entry in the 2D Star Wars action titles on the SNES was a take no prisoners affair that liberally altered the events of the classic trilogy. Only pure fans with freshly... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Boogerman

    Some games we play on Replay are undisputed classics, while others are vague memories from our childhoods that may or may not still be good. Boogerman is one of those that I absolutely loved when I was ten years old, but I didn't know exactly what to expect 16 years later. Tim Turi, Joe Juba, Phil... More
  • Blog Post: Replay – Castlevania 64

    I enjoyed Castlevania 64 for what it was when I was younger. Plugging back in this Nintendo 64 cartridge has proven that age has not been kind to the Castlevania series' first foray into 3D. How many times do we die? How far do we make it into the game? Find out the embarrassing answers to these... More
