With the demise of Bleem! and EB practically the only source for Bleem! discs, it has come to my attention that it appears that Bleemcast for MGS appears to be either sold out or no longer available. Does anyone know how I may contact Rand to find out if this is the case, or if there are still more available, but EB has simply dropped it out of the lack of interest for the Dreamcast.

You do know they stopped production of bleem & bleem!cast, right?

You can keep searching EB, GameSpot, (there are others, afaik). and try e!bay & yahoo! auctions too.

Yes, I know all about Bleem R.I.P. and all, but I was wondering if he may still have some left. Also, I remember there was a lot of talk about releasing the source & tools to convert other PSX like Bleem! did. I remember that it wasn't going to be given away, but I wanted to find out how much it would cost to obtain the Bleem! "SDK." I think that there are still way too many games on the PSX that should come out on the DC a la the Bleem! method.

The lone email left on the bleem.com site says mailto:rip@bleem.com, try that.

Also, try and see if there are any Fry's stores in your area - they're your best bet at this point.

As for buying the Bleem SDK, forget about it. They spent years and racked up $2 million in legal debt over it, so they're not likely to part with it for any sum of money. Also, it would take someone "intimately familiar" with the code to do anything with it, a feat that could take some time.

The bottom line, though, is that if you missed your chance to buy bcMGS then you simply missed out. The company is out of business, the discs will never be made again, and they can't be backed up or pirated. Sorry, but no dice.

That's not quite true, he was just here & I see his name on the users online thing every few days, he's just not posting anymore.

My local Fry's Electronics has about 75 copies of each Bleemcast. Most of them aren't selling due to what I think is the DDR(why does everyone like that game? The music sucks ass) demo and newer systems.

Why would you want to contact him? Are u a dumbass? You think he's gonna try to find out if there are any Bleem!Cast's in ur area? The man got business, he doesn't want to waste his time finding u Bleem!cast discs. (sorry I swore, I felt like it, I'm not pissed :D )

Sonic Blaze, the next time you feel like replying, please do so in an intelligent and refined manner. I already own all 3 Bleem! discs thank you very much. My concern is not for myself but rather those individuals who have not had the chance to enjoy these 3 great games in all of their potential. Last time I remember, you were beyond pissed with the MGS disc. With that in mind, why do you care???? Besides, I've got other questions for Rand that noone in this forum could answer.

I went into my EB a few days ago, and picked up both of them, although I think my MGS was used, bah! at least I got it :)

Only $16.
