Super Replay – Resident Evil 4

Much like the zombie creatures Resident Evil is known for, we can't seem to rid ourselves of former Game Informer editor turned Capcom associate brand manager, Tim Turi. He tries to leave and we think he's gone, but suddenly he, and his unquenchable desire to play Resident Evil while others watch, comes back to life.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

We embrace this kind of reanimation though, and were happy to make Tim play through Resident Evil 4 in its entirety in order to remind everyone that that game has found yet another set of platforms on which to exist – the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Super Replay – Shadow Of The Colossus

Super Replay – Shadow Of The Colossus

Team Ico's latest, The Last Guardian, is finally (pending any additional surprise delays) arriving this October, which is a perfect excuse to play through Shadow of the Colossus in its entirety.

Of course, you don't really need an excuse to play Shadow of the Colossus because it is a fantastic game. Join myself and Andrew Reiner as we relive some of our Shenmue magic by keeping this a two-person show, making our way through the game's strange world and bringing down its imposing beasts. We don't have a strict schedule in mind for this series, because we want to be able to absorb everyone's feedback episode to episode, so we likely won't be recording multiple episodes in advance. We're all going on this journey together, so please sound off in the comments section below or on YouTube.

For more Super Replay, follow the links to find our full playthroughs of Shenmue and Tex Murphy: Under A Killing Moon. You can also see our full playthrough of Dark Souls III here, which technically isn't a Super Replay, but is pretty close. For our Replay of Shadow of the Colossus, head here.

Interview: Fillion, Tudyk, And Day Discuss The Zany Fun Of Con Man: The Game

Interview: Fillion, Tudyk, And Day Discuss The Zany Fun Of Con Man: The Game

This week Con Man: The Game launched as a free-to-play game on iOS and Google Play. The simulation title lets you run your own convention and is based off the web series starring Alan Tudyk. The show is a lighthearted take on Tudyk's experience in the con circle after Firefly. Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day also appear on the show. As fans know, this isn't the first time these names have worked together (actors in Joss Whedon shows always stay connected), but Con Man is the first video game they've been in together. Developed by Frima Studios, all three had input on the mobile title with Day even serving as producer. We chatted with the three about the game and learned everything from why they made Joss Whedon the janitor to their love for the con scene to how much crazier season two of Con Man gets.

Con Man: The Game became possible thanks to reaching the $3 million tier of your Indiegogo campaign to create the show. Did you expect the outpour you received for Con Man?

Replay – The Football Episode

Replay – The Football Episode

We don't often look at sports games on Replay, and considering how integral they are to the success of gaming, we view that as a mistake. The reason why we haven't? They don't slot neatly into the Replay formula, and we know, because we've tried to bring them to you numerous times before, but have always ended up deleting the footage. In celebration of the release of another Madden title this week, we thought we'd give this test another shot. We think we found a formula that keeps with the spirit of the show, and is equally as informative.

Rather than just looking at a few games like we normally do, we decided to look at how far football games have come with quick looks at nearly a dozen titles, spanning the NES era to Dreamcast. As you'll soon see, some game developers didn't quite know how to bring this sport to gaming early on. Their attempts were hilariously bad, and it took numerous attempts before one developer eventually got it right.

Even if sports aren't your thing, we think you'll enjoy seeing just how fast this medium evolves and how quickly innovation hits. Thanks again for watching. We'll see you in seven days!

Funny To A Point – Getting Lost In No Man's Sky

Funny To A Point – Getting Lost In No Man's Sky

Hype. Controversy. Rocks shaped like dongs. This week's Funny To A Point takes a look at everything orbiting No Man's Sky.

For a game steeped in hyperbole since its announcement, it's not hyperbolic to say that No Man's Sky has been one of the most talked-about games of this generation. Hello Games' soaring ambition for its procedurally generated space romp was impossible to ignore, and I got excited by the possibilities just like everyone else – it's hard not to when you've got 18-quintillion, planet-sized planets to explore. Forget the old "See that mountain? You can actually go there!" routine; for No Man's Sky, "open world" is a criminal understatement. If you're the type of gamer who still judges a game's worth by its length or the size of its world, the sheer scope of No Man's Sky is enough to make your head explode like that dude from Scanners.*

The Devils In The Details: Breaking Down Rise Of Iron’s New Enemies

The Devils In The Details: Breaking Down Rise Of Iron’s New Enemies

SIVA is a plague of self-assembling, self-replicating nanotechnology that was created during humanity’s Golden Age. The Iron Lords hoped to use it to better humanity, but the corruption was too violent to be contained, and their quest ended in the downfall of many of humanity’s mightiest heroes. Now, centuries later, the Fallen House of Devils has uncovered this mysterious substance in the depths beneath the Cosmodrome, and this nanotechnology is corrupting them – turning them into deadly machine gods. The universe is in need of a Guardian brave enough to take down this new threat and seal it away forever. Come meet your new foe: The Devil Splicers.

Once Bungie settled on the story for Rise of Iron, the team knew that they had to craft a new set of enemies for players to fight throughout the Rise of Iron campaign. With the Taken King, the team had put together a new race of enemies by pulling creatures from all of Destiny’s existing enemy factions. However, for Rise of Iron, Bungie thought it would be more interesting to transform a single faction into a new enemy.

Test Chamber – Taking Them Down Limb By Limb In Attack On Titan

Test Chamber – Taking Them Down Limb By Limb In Attack On Titan

The creators of Dynasty Warriors take on the Attack on Titan franchise, and it strangely has more in common with a Spider-Man video game than the battlefield beat-em-ups for which the the studio is known.

Join Suriel Vazquez (who is familiar with the source material) and me (who is less familiar) as we bypass the introductory tutorial and get right to the meat of the game by taking down a handful of strange, gigantic, asexual naked creatures. We show off the impressive navigation and fast-paced combat, which feels a bit like a version of Spider-Man who isn't afraid to carry two swords with him to every battle and use them to lop off limbs.

In the video I note the game is coming to PlayStation 4 – that's absolutely true, but the game is also coming to Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 3, and Vita and will be available Tuesday, August 30.

Test Chamber – How To Create A Home In Dragon Quest Builders

The Dragon Quest franchise has a new sidequest, and it has a lot in common with Minecraft.

Dragon Quest Builders, as the third word in the title implies, is a game all about building. You'll find the art, monsters, and even some of the story Dragon Quest players have come to expect, but the gameplay loop is less about building up your party, and more about building a city, block by block. In the video below, Jeff Cork and I show off my pitiful town, complete some missions, set up some town defenses, and put on some dang clothes.

Dragon Quest Builders is coming to PlayStation 4 and Vita on October 11.
