Oh man, I remember this being played on a Philips CDI on a weird Finnish Gaming TV-show (creatively named Game Over, I think?) that let you play for score over the phone, somehow, as in using your landline phone as a controller, while watching a live TV stream. And I remember wanting that thing so bad, thinking it looked like THE FUTURE. Oh man, CD-I games played on a phone... most likely a more responsive controller.

@Jackel2072: Got I remember being so fucking pumped for that movie. I thought it was going to be the greatest sci-fi film ever.

Boy was I wrong. :(

Game Over was off the hook.

Nice, so weird that I've never heard of this game before. I think I would have loved it back then.

I really loved it! I actually had it on CD-i and considering the selection of games available then, Burn Cycle was the shit. It also came with the soundtrack by Simon Boswell on a separate GOLD CD and I still have it, and unlike the game, it's still awesome!

It's a pity that this didn't turn into a 5 hour accidental Let's Play like Phantasmagoria, but I will take what I can get when it comes to Random PC Games.

That RPCG was the best video on this damn site. I can't remember how many times I watched clips of it.

Yeah, I probably couldn't play all the way through that game in this day and age, but back then... totally.
 
Weirdly enough it somehow reminds me of Lexx: The Dark Zone, I wonder why that is.

Was at work and my phone went off telling me of the awesomeness of random pc game .... I yelled at the sky .... WHY!!!!

Well , before work today I loaded it up on the TV and enjoyed the 90 minutes of amazing everything that GB:BC is. Reminded me of 1995's cyberbykes and now playing a classic VR game while watching classic FMV Adventure ...

Must find my S:Shock 1 CD edition in my closet...

In summary, Windows 3.1 is pretty dope and Burn Cycle is hilariously bad.

AWW man, not Ryan! Sorry, probably not cool to say that, but Vinny and Dave's humor isn't the same as Ryan's. There are some mixes that don't work so well. Ryan and Patrick, Ryan and Jeff, Ryan and Brad, those work. (FOR ME) These more comical videos the combo of Ryan with Vinny and Dave (and/or Drew) doesn't work that well. Yeah, perhaps I am a jerk, alone in this opinion. Ryan just makes references or gives random info on stuff all the time, and it is great sometimes, just not in this scenario.

I'm with you. Vinny, Dave and Drew are the definitive PC crew.

So amazingly awful. I totally feel Ryan's pain at all the stupid cyberpunk future BS. Firestarter dude was the best.

This was great. When random PC game started I was a purist and thought they should only be playing actually good games but Burn Cycle with the addition of Ryan has converted me. I could sit here all day watching them fiddle with MS 3.1 and play shitty FMV games.

Always enjoy these way better when other members of the crew are along for the ride.. Namely this one and The Ripper. Ryan and/or Jeff just bring an energy that these videos really benefit from.

I rarely comment on the excellent stuff you guys do but I could not let this pass.

This was the best thing I've seen in ages. So funny.

Justified my annual subscription in one go.

God, Ripper is one of those games that is a special kind of hell. It's obtuse puzzles were perfect for tormenting the Bomb crew. Myst IV would be another good one to drive them nuts.

Dave and Vinny is all you need. We get more than enough Ryan as it is.
