@AudioSoldier Oh yes please !! One of my favourite games ever, incredible atmosphere coupled with a great story line and decent poin & click adventure mechanics.

A great classic that every sci-fi adventure fan should try.

That game was awesome, that was one of the first fpses with rpg elements with mildly open world and quests and shops. It way ahead of it's time in terms of gameplay. You could even upgrade weapons there and it had stealth elements so fearsomely neglected in that playthrough.

I remember getting a demo of this on the front of a PC Zone or a PC Gamer, way back when!

I played the crap out of it.

Great new show, gents!

I remember renting this game and burning it. It was such a crappy game. What's all the commotion? I remember the player saying that non stop. It was some gangster ghetto crap shooter. It was fun but I was never really in these kind of pc game. It's like a ghetto half life

I don´t rememeber the graphics to be so bad. You two should check the video settings before starting the game.

@miser_cz Good spot - we had to run it slightly lower than average resolution to get it to feed into the stream. Old games can be really touchy over stuff like that.

@dannyodwyer @miser_cz It wasn´t image resolution what set me off, but rather texture resolution.

@miser_cz Hmmm. Everything else was cranked up actually. Perhaps rose tinted glasses?

I remember I would have to turn the volume way down when playing this because I was 13 and didn't want to get the game taken away.

I own Kingpin via GOG. Love it.

The gameplay is pretty good and the dialog is funny as Hell. Everybody in this game comes off like a 1990s 'gangsta rap' cliche'. Laughed my ass off at some of it.
