Tom is joined by Jenny, Stuart and James (and a pre-recorded Mike from Retrospekt) for the FINAL episode of Bleep to talk about train jousting, cars made of cupboards, and a whole lot of video game reviews.
On the show we review Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura, The California Raisins: The Grape Escape, System Shock 2, Star Wars Trilogy Arcade and ToeJam & Earl, before signing off for the last time.
Thanks to Steve, Radio Adelaide, loyal fans, Retrospekt and Bleep’s many guests and contributors. It’s been a pleasure and an honour. Good luck and good gaming!
Paul from Retrospekt joins Bleep to chat about his massive gaming collection, and the lost Amstrad that started it all. He also talks about his Wikipedia article which has gone several years without ever being vandalised!
Meanwhile Tom reads a listener submitted review of Psychonauts and discusses the possibilities for a sequel (and why Minecraft might help make it happen)
Tanya joins Tom on Bleep to review Captain Claw, a game about a swashbuckling pirate cat fighting the evil Cocker Spaniards!
Also in the show – One of the least futuristic depictions of the year 3000 ever
-Grandma’s birthday and the near destruction of Earth
-Jackie Chan, Pepsiman and a sneezing eyeball
-Fantasy internet plans
Kyal returns to review the 1994 PC game Theme Park, which features salty chips, watered down drinks, numerous toilets, fishmen and workers that have the worst union ever.
Tom and Kyal also chat about realism in racing games, a Death Star in hell, why number pads on controllers are never useful, and why Mario Kart crossed with Need For Speed is better than you might imagine!
Guest Michael from Retrospekt.com.au joins Tom to talk about the Nokia N-Gage, the E3 that Sony wishes it could forget, and actual battles that took place in ancient Japan. So get sidetalking and attack all weak points for massive damage! It’s Ridge Racer.
BLEEP! Ep 58 – Tue 15 Jan 2013 – Halloween Harry review and Steve farewell featuring Elvis
Tom is joined by James (aka the writer of Bleep’s Superman 64, Beauty Factory, Shaq Fu and Jurassic Park reviews), as he talks about the PC classic Halloween Harry/Alien Carnage. We also chat about what McPixel and The Pirate Bay have in common, a Dad that password protects his DOS games, why real men rocket jump, an Oregon Trail where you don’t die of dysentry, and we say farewell to Steve with a montage of random Steveclips played over Elvis.
