Jess and Zorine face up against the birth of survival horror in this 1992 game. Expect many surprises and some trouble with running.

How about trying the Raven Holm part in Half-Life 2? :)

By the way, Alone in the Dark isn't the first survival horror game. It's the first 3D survival horror game.

This has got to be one of the funniest episodes of recent weeks. It was hard not to laugh out loud to avoid waking my housemates who're asleep. Is there a way to check which games Jess and Zorine has played, like a "played horro games list"? Would like to see the girls play Capcom's Haunting Ground. It's one creepy and scary game.

Should give the game Ju-no on wii a try. I think it'll be a pretty good game. 2 people can play it and test how brave u can get.

I just LOVE your show!!! I'd recommend you girls to play a 2012 indie game called "Paranormal" , that'd be really fun with Jess playing it!!! ^___^

Nice episode girls specially because i have the opportunity to watch this classic game, i only read about it but i never has the opportunity to play it, i know that actually i.m not playing but you what i mean...i hope so hahaha, actually you can play and old school game like this one, maybe the first clock tower to see more old school games in the show maybe they are not as scary nowadays but they deserve our respect because without some of this games the survval/horror genre it wasn´t be the same, so we salute you old terror games with plastic surgery protagonists hahaha.

My recommendations for the nest episode is alone in the dark: the new nightmare for PS2 or PS1 i mean if you already play an alone in the dark game maybe you could try this one for the next week.

And my recommendations for uncoming episodes maybe you can play any of the condemned saga, maybe resume SH3 or play "rule of rose" or "haunting ground" for PS2, or if you really can get some wii from japan or at least with the same region from there you can play Fatal frame IV: Mask of the Lunar widely recommended

I'd like to suggest F.E.A.R. 1. The scary parts might be to seperate from each other though, although towards the end it gets pretty freaky. I've played many horror games, but none of them bring chills down my spine like that one does.

Also the second installment has some pretty scary moments, especially Kindergarten level.

Loving the show, keep'em coming, girls!

Happy gaming.

Good times!  I remember this game being frustrating as hell, and now I know why - game mechanics are kind of crappy like fighting, running and everything.  Near the end of the game requires a bunch of running in underground tunnels, trying to get past a giant worm or something like that.

A cool moment not seen in this vid was getting the ghosts to waltz in the ballroom when you play 'Danse Macabre' on that grammaphone or whatever that old record player was.  I enjoyed experimenting with the weapons too (and laughed and cursed a lot with all the multiple deaths I put the character through), eventually I did alright killing the baddies with the saber.

Overall not a bad game, might be fun to check it out again.  Thanks for the show.  Good pick!

=) Such a fun episode. Doing the robot with the bathroom jelly. Death by portrait.  I'm officially putting my vote in for Parasite Eve for the next show!

Man, I remember playing this game way back in the day.  But I was so young that I barely knew what to do and couldn't get very far.  Well, it was certainly fun watching all the things I missed out on.  And the girls' reactions were hilarious  : ))

I would absolutely love a HoH of Dead Space or the original Dino Crisis

@Lucifer_Jones >=)  We should have PO a copy of Machine for Pigs sent directly to the GSAU offices so Jess can't get out of it.

@telmor84 We need a swear jar for charity. Every curse word, they donate $1.

@LordDana I'm pretty sure they already did Dead Space in a previous episode, but maybe they could revisit it.

@LordDana Agree, the first Dino Crisis was very good and a way too harder than the action-oriented Dino Crisis 2

@leviathanwing I do watch live (sometimes). I know Ed is behind the scenes, it would be cool for him guest host. Shake the dynamic up a little.

@Lucifer_Jones what i would suggest would be a swear counter episode. even south park could do it ;)

Hey, take smaller swigs!  Build up to it.  I was in the process of downing three Guinnesses anyway before I watched the show.

For a show out of Australia, try a Sheaf Stout.  Beer Advocate gives Sheaf 82/100, and Guinness (original) gets 84/100.  I like them equally, so the scores are about right.  I love my stouts!
