Well I awoke yesterday morning to discover that Bleem went the way of the dodo. The money they pulled in off of their latest discs simply wasn’t enough to fuel their expensive battle with Sony in court or chip away at the $1 million debt they had amassed as a result. No one’s sure exactly what happened nor is it sure what will happen now (i.e., does the lawsuit by Sony go away, does the lawsuit Bleem filed against Sony go away) but this is an incredible bummer, IMO.
I’m going to start to write a comprehensive article/summation of Bleem but for now check the one I (finally) finished and published:
The Nintendo 64: A Postmortem.
Oh, and I got Civilization III. I may never come up for air again.
