Love this game, there's a new one on the Switch that's pretty decent and has 4-player co-op (but a little pricey at the moment for the amount of content). It has this original game (well, the arcade version) in it as well as part of the package, which is cool.

Clicked around for a preview, stopped on Vinny yelling "it's coming out of my ass!!"

So I'll be watching this later with some dread on how we get there.

I remember being a wee child and hearing Bubble Bobble had something like 100 levels, and literally thinking "That's an impossible number. No one has ever beaten this game."

This brings back memories of my childhood with a Bubble Bobble rental and just *struggling* at level 98 until finally giving up. Pretty cathartic to see them do it all.

I can't wait to watch this. Bubble Bobble was a huge part of my childhood and I will always love this game, if nothing else than for the nostalgia. I had a rough, long day at work. I was bummed that I was too beat to even hit the gym tonight. Seeing this just made my night.

Now I'm waiting for y'all to play Stonekeep!!!

Like a lot of other commentators here, I have some early and fond memories of this game. My brother and I had to spend time after school at a babysitter's house for a stretch, and she had an NES with Bubble Bubble on it.

Film & 40s for Aliens would be dope.

Also Bubble Bobble is great and somehow listening to that music for two hours didn't drive me crazy. The music during the boss though, that gave me some flashbacks to Vinnyvania and listening to that Dracula tune during the last fight over...and over...and over again.

YEEEEEES!!!!! This is something I've hoped for for a long time. Bubble Bobble is one of the greatest flawed games of all time, and the soundtrack has never left my head. bammm..bammm...bammmmm..... Dundundun dudun dun dun dudun dun duddun dun... So good.

You gotta face the wall and bubble at it when the level ends for extra points!

I, too, do not get tired of this music.

Just seeing the words Bubble Bobble makes me so happy.

Edit: I totally completed this game by myself not knowing the ending and went through the whole thing again with my brother.

I loved this game as a kid, but whiskey definitely seems like the way to go playing it in modern times. I feel like hearing more than 5 minutes of the music loop starts to melt your brain.

@neocalypso: eh. You're learn to love it. Or if you're like me, the gameplay is secondary and I come to these for the Beast crew and their conversation/antics. :)

Amazing stream guys as always. Truly enjoy these. Anytime Vinny cracks a bottle open, it's good times.

hey vinny, you need to put your dream scene into a "dream" for it to show up on dreamsurfing and searches. Right now it is just a scene, that can only be found through dreamshaping (same way you would find a car or tree or whatever from the dreamverse).
it may seem like "dreams" are supposed to be for publishing multiple scenes linked together, but no. Even if it is just one simple scene, it needs to be put inside a dream. Check reddit for tips on how to publish things correctly. It can be somewhat confusing.

pro tips: Thumbnails for dreams are rectangular, thumbnails for scenes and obects and such are circular. You’ll notice everything listed in dreamsurfing being rectangular. It’s easier to grasp if you view publishing something as a dream as equivalent to compilng an executable with the scene(s) inside.

everyone messes up the publishing once or twice. It’s a strange system.

sorry about random dreams tips everywhere... Also, haven’t played the dream yet. Waiting for QL :D

BUBBLE FREAKING BOBBLE!

Reminded me of the days of playing 2 players NES and SNES games with my brother when we were kids.

Awesome! Play more old games!
