Replay – The Ring: Terror's Realm

by Andrew Reiner on Jan 22, 2016 at 02:00 PM

Many moons ago, a young man named Tim Turi became a legend after completing some of the worst games of yesteryear. Even after being bloodied by Cyberia and Overblood 2, Tim persevered, and eagerly looked forward to the next challenge that we could throw at him. And then Martian Gothic: Unification happened. The ridiculous amount of item management coupled with an overly confusing world design has broken Tim's spirits. He puts on a good game face in the videos, but behind the scenes, Turi is a mess.

In hindsight, for this week's Replay, we should have let Tim pick his own game – a title he loves like Sonic the Hedgehog 3 or that Dead Space 3 garbage, but we instead choose another horrible survival horror game. Welcome to The Ring: Terror's Realm, a video game take on the popular series of Japanese novels and films. Released exclusively on Dreamcast in 2000, The Ring kicks off with an unexplainable death that may be linked to a computer program. Jeff Cork, Kyle Hilliard, and I join Tim for the opening moments of this game, which starts off with a bang.

Our second segment involves a camera and acting from all four us. What we get into is laborious and lengthy, but there's a great pay off to it. Thanks again for watching, and we'll see you again in seven days for another episode! Special thanks go out to Chase and his father for recommending The Ring to us! You guys are the best!
