Tune in Wednesdays at 8 for CBS's new games show Don't Mock the Clock!

CANYON Midi!!! Wow, blast from the past :D

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. :(

Okay, Giant Bomb. You've got my money for another year. Just don't stop making these.

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!

Yes RPCG! My favourite!

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.

Oh man, UPN. That existed.

So happy these are back

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...

Posted by MrAmazing

I could pay money to see more stuff like this! Oh wait...

Edited by MeatSim

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

Canyon.MID intro is the best intro ever.

Random PC Game, thou hast been missed :)

Ryan is always ending shit early. Don't bring him along next time.

Posted by TehPickle

Woah Canyon! Ahh memories.

Posted by Jasoncourt

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.

Damn, this happened during the 24 hours my Internet was off? Good to see they uploaded it promptly though.

Missed this feature, welcome back Random PC Game! Woo!

Edited by bybeach

Vinny had to go for the porn...there was no choice!

I never undersdtood any of this, but it was kind of fun to watch.

I mocked the clock, and the clock won.

Posted by KevinK

What did the chat tell Dave when he started saying "To earn credits, you need to go to the back room of the club...."?

Posted by KevinK

@triviaman09: Yeah man. Star Trek: Voyager and WWE SmackDown. I <3'ed UPN.

Canyon is so dope, hadn't thought about that midi file in years.

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

Posted by Chris2KLee

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

Posted by Johnyliltoe

God, I thought that sounded familiar! I totally remember Canyon.mid on my old windows!

Posted by Patman99

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.

Posted by Nation764

Wow, Ryan was not pleasant during this.

Which is exactly the Ryan I like.

Posted by evanbower

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.

Posted by mandableman

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.

Bravo

Posted by uhrag

Damn, thought it would last more than that. Still 'twas good show :)

Posted by teekomeeko

Holy Lord, I want more of this nonsense game. What a complete and utter pile of crap that was, and it had me rolling with laughter again and again.

Is that news reporter in the televerse Claudia Black?

Posted by KlUMZeE

Ahhhh, good stuff. Glad to see the return of this feature and I really hope they keep it going; So much fun!

Posted by ThePickle

So glad this is back. If they can keep the pace at one per week, subscription renewed until the end of linear time.

What year is this supposed to take place in, 2002?

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.

Best voice acting ever! "Virus Pro-Tec---....Tion Software."

Ok, Ryan on RPG is something I can support.

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

How is this something that was actually created?
