The lights are on
Considering that Game Informer has been covering the industry for the better part of 20 years, we've managed to amass quite the video game collection here at the office. We don't want our thousands of games to just sit and gather dust in the vault, so Replay was born. In these segments, we'll be grabbing games from every system and genre imaginable and popping them in to see how they've held up over the years. Keep an eye on Replay to relive fond (and not so fond) memories from gaming's past.
Get ready to get wet. Treasures of the Deep is a 1997 release that
allowed player to capture dolphins in nets and kill every marine animal
known to man. Also, you can kill man.
We play Alucard's 1997 adventure that's as excellent today as it was 16 years ago.
This SNES game is a wet, sloppy mess, much like Beethoven himself.
Long before they worked on sports titles, Visual Concepts put out this bite-sized platformer.
We jump back into that most sacred of gaming's gifts: the full-motion video adventure game.
We plumb the depths of awful mid-90s FMV games, then end the episode with the finals of Super Replay Showdown.
We take on the Third Reich in the title that started the World War II FPS craze.
Earthbound is finally coming to the Wii U's Virtual Console, but we
refused to wait any longer to play Nintendo's quirky RPG classic again,
so we dove into our vault and took it for a nostalgic spin.
Onimusha follows a ghost busting Samurai who
kills demonic monsters and absorbs their souls with a mystical
gauntlet. It's pretty close to actual history.
Amongst the thousands of games in Game Informer's vault, we found two that celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.
For our first ever Replay with a portable game, we take
a look back at one of the only Metroid games that has seriously split
fans: Metroid II for GameBoy.
Game Informer's month-long celebration of co-op gaming once again
extends to Replay, our silly show that revisits gaming's past.
