bleem! for the Dreamcast - May 12, '00 by JoseQ
Phew... I finally found a place where I can log into after paying a fee. It was a little bit more difficult than I expected. Anyways, I was at the bleem! booth when they opened the curtains to the public and I must say I was mighty impressed with what they had to show. The curtains rose at about 1:30pm (PST) yesterday letting 3 huge rear-projection-screen visible with Omega Boost running on them. Two of them were running on Dreamcasts and the other one on an original Sony Playstation.
The difference was visibly and easily noticeable, and it looked really well. Not only did the graphics look really smooth but the motion was super-fluid, just as if the game had been designed for the Sega console. After a while they switched displays to Gran Turismo 2000 which also ran beautifully, and fast. From comments in the crowd I gathered that it looks even better than the PC version.
Those PC version fans wondering about it not being updated, you might be glad to hear that the PC version will be kept up to par with the Dreamcast advances made. While you shouldn't expect simultaneous releases, there will be updates to the PC version eventually. Their marketing team is shooting for bleem! packs with 100 games each, running for about $19.95. There is no target date as it will be available "when it's done". Hopefully it should be out by late summer or fall. The details for the packs have not been finalized, so the games or the price are not fixed yet. Those are just targets.
I must express it once again. The games looked marvelous, and Sega should be really glad about this. I'm sure Sony's lawyers are working overtime on this though. We'll see what develops.

Subject: bleem! rant...
Straight off of Computer Games online's website:

"The PC version will soon follow a very similar distribution model. They’re dumping the software rendering mode in the PC version of Bleem!, because that’s 900f the compatibility and setup problems these days. Like the Dreamcast version, they’ll sell four $20 discs that each have been thoroughly QA’d for 100 Playstation games."

I feel that I, and the rest of the bleem! PC users have been abandoned for the past months without even an update on the status of bleem!, epecially the new development of bleem! packs for PC...
So does this mean that everyone who shelled out their $29.95 has to BUY a new bleempack in order to play 100 games now?!

If this turns out to be true, i dont think Sony will be the only ones taking bleem! to court anymore. They better watch themselves or else they will end up with a class action lawsuit for the benefit of the consumers on their hands.

This is getting too rediculous and the bleem! guys are getting far too greedy. Anyways, for you future bleemers out there, forget bleemcast and bleem! for that matter. If you want PSX games on a console, go get PSX2 when it comes out. If you want a good PSX emu on your PC go grab VGS.

Subject: Dreamcast
I like the idea of a Dreamcast Bleem but, don't you need a Pentium III with at least 700 mhz and at least about 128 megs of Ram. And of course a very powerful video card to run something like that? I say it won't work well anyways because they will not even hardly update the one for the Playstation!!

Um, wake up! They're talking about playing PlayStation games on the DC, not a DC emulator! Reading the articles before posting comments on them is usually a good idea...

Now i have 24 hour free internet access and i can now play classics like Unreal Tournament and counterstrike FREE ahh bliss.

Um, no.

I own a decent gaming PC, and aside from the occasional game of Unreal Tournament or The Sims, the only gaming I do with it is through emulation. Why? Because the kinds of games that I enjoy are being made in Japan, by Japanese companies, for Japanese consoles. NOT for PC.

Even though my PC blows my DC and PS away, it's those machines, and my other consoles, that I come back to when it's time to play, because of the GAMES. Not because I'm a 'kid' and I 'can't afford better'. Next time you post, try not putting your foot in your mouth.

>You are a fool!
I can tell you that there are a lot of people who could make a better emulator and not precharge for it!
If you are going to blatantly say that this is your product and it can and will do this, then completely
abandon your users, It's bad business!
If BLEEM had any real conviction to their product it would get updated as regularly as any emulator that
is free i.e. MAME!
When it comes down to it myself and many many others paid for a program that we believed would emulate
the psx with about 95% accuracy and an update at least monthly for newer games!
Instead half the games I've tried don't work and the ones that do aren't even 90% emulated.
Also the game compatability chart on their site hasn't been updated for months!!!
I can't even know if a game I go rent will work until I blow the money to get it!
It's bull and I think if BLEEM wanted to correct it we would see an update soon.
With regular updates, and a more upkept websight!

Subject: Some thoughts about Sega vs. Sony...
Just to provide what I hope to be a more balanced perspective to this discussion (such as it is...)

I recently took a trip to Dave & Buster's here in the San Francisco Bay Area. This place has a lot of new games, a good majority of which are Sega games - ranging from the well-known Daytona Racing games to a full-fledged commercial aircraft simulator. Many of these games are very impressive not only in terms of their graphics, but their gameplay as well.

Sega indeed has much to offer the arcade community, and their aim in building the DreamCast was to bring some of their arcade technology to the home market - a feat that has only been accomplished once before with the Neo Geo home system (and unfortunately, not very successfully).

Sony, on the other hand, has little to no presence in the arcade market, instead focusing their efforts on the home market. I personally haven't been very impressed with much of the Playstation's game base - Bloody Roar and Bloody Roar 2 were really the only games I ever played with any consistency there. However, I'm not a big fan of the DC either - most of the games I enjoy playing are only available on the PC.

Personally, I think Sega's made a big comeback, and they have momentum stemming from their arcade division. (Which, as I understand it, is becoming more and more a part of the home market due to the Dreamcast home console and the Naomi arcade machine - both rather similar in hardware design.) And they have a lot going for them right now.

I'm content to take a "wait-and-see" approach to this thing. I think a lot of the flaming going on here is ill-founded, and I'd like to see it stop. We'll see how the DC and the PSX2 stand up to each other when the PSX2 comes to market. I trust JoseQ's opinion on Bleemcast, and I'm not terribly surprised to hear that it performs well on the DC.

By the way, has it occurred to anyone that the lack of updates on PC Bleem may have been due to development of Bleemcast? The company behind Bleem only has so many people, y'know...

This is pathetic, being a PC Bleem owner
since it's release I could only warn any
potential customers of any Bleem product!
Sure they will promise excelent products
with constant updates, truth is you get
an unfinished product and then they abandon
you!
Bleem was the worst $30 I've spent for
anything for my computer!
What about support, hell they can't even
leave simple updates to their websight
telling us anything about potential updates!
It's definately the worst run company I
have encountered as far as customer
satisfaction!
I just hope anyone interested in any
product will wait until the product has
been out to read the posts before you buy
and most definately DO NOT preorder or
you may find that you paid for a load of

Subject: Regarding the $80 you say it will cost
Umm do you really own 400 games that you need to buy all 4 of the bleempaks. Its obvius that there might be a few games on each but the way I understand is that they are separated by genre. Meaning if you are a n RPG freak and also like Action titles like myslef I can go ahead nad buy 2 of them for $40 and that is cheaper. Not too mention the whole reason for buying it is to see THE IMPROVED VISUAL ENHANCEMENTS!!

BTW I don't think they can fill a Bleempak with the RPG genre becuase there is hardly 100 GOOD, TOP-SELLING RPGs for the PSX. And in a n article they are doing the top 400 best selling and popular games. SOOOO expect that RPG be mixed with another Bleempak genre. I assume a sports Bleempak will also be an option.

Yes it is true that 100 games is more than most of us own, but the problem is that you don't get to select whick 100 games you get. Really all you need is 4 games and you might need all four paks.
I hope that bleem offers a deal where all 4 paks will be availible for, say, $50 or something rasonable.

The sad thing is I have to buy a PS2. Everything I've seen for dreamcast looks smooth as hell, but ps2 has squaresoft, being an rpg freak i got to buy the ps2 (btw sega doesn't always come in second. The dreamcast is a great system with a growin library of good games.

Bleemcast sounds like a good idea, but the price has to drop. 4bleempacks x 19.99 is 80 bucks, and with the projected drop of a psx to 80 bucks, (with a dual shock controler and 100% compatability) yeah the games might look a little better, but 80 bucks for pretty is too much for me.

It wouldn’t do to write an entire article on bleem! without mentioning the legal issues involved, so for those keeping score, here’s a quick summary of the current situation: Sony’s lawsuit against bleem! is still going (and going, and going…), but in an amusing twist, Mr. Herpolsheimer mentioned that currently, bleem! actually has an injunction against Sony to keep them away during E3, after the fiasco last year when after being denied a preliminary injunction, Sony tried to get E3 officials to close the bleem! booth. On another note, bleem! on the Dreamcast is in fact not a Sega-licensed product, and bleem! has received no official support from Sega, so Sega should be protected from Sony lawsuits

I love the Dreamcast and with its original games like Shenmue, Crazy Taxi and ChuChu Rocket also theres ToyCommander, Soul calibur and Powerstone 2, how can you go wrong

According to the IGN article, two additional Bleempacks are in the works, one for a selection of Japanese import-only games, and another for European PAL games. Rather than distributing these directly to stores like the other Bleempacks, these would only be available for order through the Bleem website, as they're a more niche-oriented product. These two would be released after the four regular Bleempacks.

No word on what games'll be supported in the Japanese import pack yet, but I know I'll be buying one as soon as it's released. :)

Yeah, apparently Bleem will play CDR backup copies of games.

From the article at dreamcast.ign.com:

'Lastly, we asked about copy protection, and Mr. Herpolsheimer said that
they have entirely given up on trying to replicate Sony’s copy protection in
bleem!, and one of the deciding factors was when Sony made it apparent
during the trial that any attempt by bleem! to implement the PlayStation
copy protection and prevent CDRs from being playable, would actually be
a direct violation of a Sony patent on their protection scheme.'


Nothing quite so heartwarming as watching a major multinational corporation shoot itself in the foot. Way to go, Sony :)

The biases here are scary are best, dangerous at worst.
In this thread, I've seen the following hardware declared horrible without exception:
Sega-everything
Sony-PSX/PS2
Intel CPUs (I personally prefer AMD's, but that's not my point, and IIRC, the DC has 32, and everything I've seen so far looks better on PC)
Bleem(cast)
PC gaming

I've seen the following declared perfect and better even though the person(s) stating have never seen any/much info about them:
Sega
Sony
Bleemcast

WTF is wrong with all of you?
None of you (probably) have even seen the damn PS2, let alone what it can do. Wait until it's on the shelves to start spouting prejudicial statements.
DC has the power, and now it looks like it has the library to overtake Sony (for better or for worse)
BleemPC's been disappointing, but that doesn't mean bleemcast won't kick flaming donkey balls.
(And for the record, I have Genesis, 32X, Saturn, PSX, DC, and my PC has a DDR GeForce256, so I have plenty of experience)

And I don't have Sony's prick up my ass because I and my wallet are too sore after Sega $!@#ed me with their worthless consoles of the past.

Do you get into endless fights with people who watch movies on HBO because 'HBO sux, Showtime rulez'? Or do you just watch the movies you like, on the channels you like, and get HBO -and- Showtime if they're both showing exclusives that you want to see?

Outside of japan, the U.S is the largest consumer market for sony and sega. When the Dreamcast was released psx sales slumped quite a bit and the dreamcast has a lot of support. Sony pushed the ps2 ahead of schedule (8 months i do believe) to catch up to the dreamcast.
Now, since bleemcast is in the works, the us dreamcast market will grow since most people threw their beloved psx's in the bin to get a dreamcast, and then they'd be able to play psx games on their new toy, with all the benefits. Excellent stragety.
As for you all flaming bleem, bleem doesn't replicate all the internal working of the psx. That's why sony haven't won a court case, and also why a whole lot of games don't work.

Now we just have to wait for the final product then everyone can make a more accurate judgement.

YOu like what you want to I will do the same. Hows this I buy what I want and enjoy the games on that system. And BTW the Dreamcast WILL make huge splash with online gaming with the help of these titles: Quake 3, Soldier of Fortune and Half-Life. THose are BIG NAME FRANCHISES (Well SoF isnt yet but it made alarge splash in the PC world) I personally LOVE UT and that right now is the only thing PS2 has going for it in the online battle(Only announced big name that is).

Furthermore with a game like SHENMUE why wouldnt you want a Dreamcast? That alone is why I bought the DC in anticpation. Along the way I have picked up EXCELLENT games like Soul Calibur and Resident Evil:Code Veronica.

Everyone has an opinion but facts are facts. And fact is the DC has a slew of BIG name titles planned for release and my opinion is that the DC future looks BRIGHT. =)

>I agree that the Dreamcast has its good points and Shemnue is an awesome RPG.The only thing that is keeping me from purchasing the DC is that jacked up controller! What the hell was Sega thinking when they designed that thing? I myself am a fan of fighting games (e.g. Marvel vs. Capcom). But with the standard DC controller, it makes gameplay fustrating, and some combos harder to pull off. The awkward shape of this controller takes awhile to get used to.
Does anyone remember the Saturn? It had great potential, but not the software backing that the PSX had. I don't want to pay $200 for another machine that may go obsolete within a year's time.
As for the problems that the PSX has had with heating up and failing, time will tell if the DC does the same thing....let's see how the laser holds up after a few months or so of heavy use.
DC is impressive, but I think I will go the way of the PSX2, the word is that it will be downward compatible with PSX CD's....

The dreamcast and PS2 graphics are VERY similiar, theres hardly a difference! Plus, who else hands out free systems and games? The PS2 is so over-hyped, that people believe it is the leading console to date. Hah... Look at all these glitches they are experiencing. I bet they rushed it out the door just to meet a damn deadline, those asses. Sega put all their resources into the dreamcast, and they are devoting all their workforce to it! Take a good look at the new hardware coming out for it as well: DVD player, zip drive, mp3 player. I'm just so sick of people saying that Sega is always second because of their mistakes from the past. I think Sega has finally cleaned up their act.

Bleem! on DC can out-perform the PC version for several reasons:

1. The DC is a console built for games. There is no bloated OS to hog all the resources.
2. Being a console, there is only ONE possible configuration for the system. You don't have to be a genius to realize that programming for one configuration is a lot easier than writing for the PC which can have hundreds of thousands of possible configs.
3. Because square pegs can fit in round holes.

I doubt Bleemcast will have 100 partial compatible games per cd, and I have no intentions of purchasing a Ps2, I have seen the games in full motion played them too not as good as some DC games (RRV will get slaughtered by Crazy Taxi any day) and the Dead or Alive 2 game on Ps2 looks worse graphicaly, than on the DC, not only does the Ps2 have the jaggies but it also has watered down textures, I doubt that there will ever be multi platform games, where the DC will not look better than the Ps2's graphics power.

Truth is that with the "Bleemcast" this Randy-programmer-fellow won't have to worry about not-too-bright PC-owners failing to install not-too-well-written drivers on their not-too-well-configured systems, so they'll have to work hard to fail on this one. I just hope that they'll update the PC-version once in a while. Heck I'll even accept PC-BleemPacks, if I was guarantied that those 100 games would work...

Wow, before i even came down to the comments section, i knew there would be some sort of system war. "Sega is always second."
WHO THE !@#$ CARES????????!!!!!!!!
Dont play the damn system then and keep your grubby hands off of it!! Go give more money to Sony so they can laugh thier ass all the way to the bank with your money. All they care about is making more money and could care less of thier userbase. Why the hell u think they started making a console anyway??? They dont even MAKE games, and they let any other game that crosses thier table to go on the market. They dont do sh!t. Just sit back and relax as money shovels into thier bank accounts. Go and support them I dont care.... I'll be playing my lovely Dreamcast online and you can be happy with your PS2 with no real online games.
PS: As for Bleamcast, Why would i want to infest my DC with PS games? ewwwww.. :D

Please, lets talk about money grubbing. I wasted countless dollars on Sega's ass $!@# stuff in the past. Let me see, Sega CD, 32Xcrement, and let us not forget the dribble that was Saturn. Yeah, Sega was real loyal to Saturn owners. Give me a break. Sega's first love always was the dollar. Their game development is, "um lets port over our Arcade games." I lost interest in arcade games over six years ago. As for Bleamcast, you ask why? Because the Dreamcast catalogue is extremely void of the styles of games that can be had on the Playstation. That is something that wouldn't have happened if Sega wasn't handed its ass by Sony in the 32-bit battles. Hell, the Dreamcast still can't outsell the PSX. And where are these online games you speak of? I guarentee that when Sony gets it online system up and running they will have more games than Sega, even with Sega's lead time. And Sony won't have to promise a free system and sucker you in to a poor ISP plan that probably won't last a year. DIVX anyone? And we'll see if their online support works like their wonderful Genesis modem. Remember that promise? Or how they really supported the Saturn's online capabilties. Sega was good once, that being their heyday with Genesis. But they have done nothing but made broken promises and shoveled sh!t down our throats since. Right now I'd buy a Nintendo before anything from Sega. And I can't stand Ninetendo.

Please, gimme a break. Sega is ALLWAYS second, it was second to Nintendo and will be second to Sony. Maybe there is an emulator... BUT it's bleem and it dosn-t even run all playstation games smoothly in a PIII with a Riva TNT2. How can it do well on a DC.

Because PC are big pile of sh!t. Intel CPU are using the worse today technology, and Microsoft operating systems make it even worse.
Dreamcast has 16 megabyte of total memory and notice games are often better than on PC. It's just as simple as that.
MAC should have won against PC if life was not buggy, by the way.

The only reason console games ever look better than PC games is because of the bigger development budgets, bigger workforces creating them (generally). Only a complete fool would try and argue that console technology is superior to the capabilities of a PC with a decent graphics card. The truth is - that if the playing field was level and equal development time, effort and cash were ploughed into a console game and a PC game the PC could look much better. The Playstation 2 & Dreamcast are grossly inferior to a P3 with one in the latest line of gfx cards available. Not an opinion - a technical fact from someone in the industry who knows. I've developed for all three platforms and believe me consoles are weedy compared to the power of a PC. Noones really harnessed the power of a PC yet... Quake 3 is a start.

I always read these boards, but never post anything. I just wanted to let you all know that I was also there when they lifted up the curtains and saw the displays (I didn't see the GT2 one, though =() But honestly, it was VERY impressive. It was completely fluid and the resolution is doubled now. They were running Omega Boost and man, that looked SWEET! (And if anyone thinks I'm lying, JoseQ can probably vouch for me...one of the girls there handed out Bleem! shirts right before they lifted the curtains...I'll wear mine proudly. Just wish they had a bigger booth with more games running. =) My 2cents.

Subject: Bleemcast Should be better than bleem
I believe Bleemcast should be MUCH better than bleem since their target platform (dreamcast) is static and won't change from one machine to another (like on the PC) hence we can expect much better compatibility. Bleempacks don't sound too good since they'll need to be purchased separately but again, it makes sense to concentrate your efforts on a group of games and MAKE 100% sure said games are compatible and more importantly finishable from beggining to end. If that happens Bleemcast should be a smash success!! and I would buy it.

Looks like you mention a wrong part in this report, JoseQ.
GT 2000 is only for PS2, and PS2 disc can't even be read by computer.
How could it be played in Dreamcast ?

I think he meant Grand Tourismo 2, not GT 2000.

Well, I personally like all Sega games.... that's why I still own a Saturn and a DC. It will be great to play PSX games on DC, as DC will be only at $149 soon. The backwards compatibility of PS2 really sucks I heard and a PS2 will cost twice as much as a DC!!!! So I hope Sega kick Sony's ass this time, especially after Bleem's release!

I puchased bleem! one year ago and I belived in the promise to see few updates of the $!@#ing software but ... I can remember Bleem 1.2 was much MUCH faster than 1.5b ... I think they want to destroy the Sony Playstation Market with sitty emulators ... and i saw the Sony Playstation 2 ... and ITS WONDERFUL, EXCELENT, INCREDIBLE, and I won't puchase a Sega Dreamcast to play the Sony Playstation games ... Give me a break! I hate the games of Dreamcast ... the tipically Sonic, and other kid rathed games !!
I think we SHOULD belive in the Playstation 2, the games they're making and try tu understand we want money with sitty promisses of make few updates of emulation ...
