The conspiracy behind the rage monkey uprising is revealed at last!
PUZZLE NOTE: The Berman puzzle requires you to find a matched set of three barcodes, not two matched pairs. My bad!
Somehow… this gets increasingly AWESOME!!!
Damn that was fast. You are so SO good to your fans *cry
It's amazing this game made it past testing. In the days before wide web access, it would be near impossible to figure out these puzzles. Doesn't help that the game provides zero instruction. Heck, it I had this I wouldn't have known some of these needed to be solved.
In the '90s the future of the internet was very romanticized. Look at the movie Ghost in the Shell. Androids have fingers that split apart so they can type faster, not quite as efficient as R2-D2 who had a USB prod nearly 20 years earlier.
Awesome! This series just gets better and better :)
I admit, that “Haven't you gotten your epic mount yet?” had me bawling. That AND a cliffhanger featuring John Rhys-Davies! I love you Spoony!
Easily one of Paul Giamatti’s finest performances…
even better than the last. this game is crazy
This has to be one of the most original and imaginitive games ever made, in terms of aesthetic and ideas anyway, no matter how ludicrous they are. That puzzle with green Quinlan jumping on the spaces just looked…weird…
It's like if David Lynch adapted a sci-fi novel armed with big-name actors…oh wait…
Now all we'd need is the Ripper running through Whitechapel during the final fight shouting “I WILL KILL HIM!”
wow two Ripper videos in one day! Sweet!
I saw John Rhys-Davies!
And Farley turning out the be the ripper; a bloated guy with warts shouting about spice.
Nice Chinatown reference :-)
Wow, wake up to go to an exam and find a Ripper video!
Cant wait till this is finished then i can have an all day ripper marathon. Great work again spoony, looking forward to the next part already
AHA! You HAVE played Shivers! I recognized the quote.
Truth be told, I've been hoping to see Shivers on one of your shows.
It took me awhile, but the little self-jab you did at the end slayed me, Spoony. Keep up the magnificent LPs!
It’s syphilic hooker, not syphilitic Spoony, I figured you would know your std’s.

Also I'm oddly intrigued by what appears to be a game of holographic pinball behind John Rhys-Davies. Is it regular pinball with holographic overlays, or just full hologram? More importantly, does it have a swirly blue thing so that we can synchronize scores with other holographic pinball machines across the globe?
God, I love these videos.
Wow, he's really wrapping this one up fast.
I like how in the documents about the monkeys and their organ failures, “terabyte” is misspelled as “terrabyte.”
What is the quote again? I didn't catch it.
Okay, I'm calling it: The girlfriend journalist is the ripper. Times coincide? It makes no sense, but it has to be her!
The multi-finger typing in Ghost in the Shell was more of a security measure than a limitation, since people could upload and download computer commands with their brain. But it works both ways (as the poor garbage man found out) where someone can link directly to your brain and start messing around with it: re-writing memories or even taking total control of your body.
Typing with super-fingers means you're not directly plugged into the system, and so they can't screw with your head.
On a side note, you would think that in Ripper, things like anti-virus software and firewalls would be standard equipment since you're uploading and downloading data directly into someone's brain by decking in. Maybe the Decking units are all mac based so they think they don't need to take security precautions when surfing the net. :-)
So the hyper intelligent demon monkeys have mafia ties? Could it possibly be ties to the DUCK MAFIA FROM PHANTASMAGORIA 2?????? Yeah…. that sound you just heard? That was the sound of your mind being BLOWN!
Good afternoon Spoony and fellow Spooners.
It's probably too late in the game for this, but I just realized that the Cafe Duchamps “joke” is just BEGGING
In the movie “Toy Story 2″, there's a video game that one of the characters is playing where, as it's discovered near the end, you can't beat it unless you spend extra money buying the strategy guide. The game was specifically, and deceitfully, designed to be a half-product.
When I think of games like Ripper or Myst, that's always what comes to mind. I was a kid when Ripper came out, and without the strategy guide, I'd have been screwed WAY before the scenes in this video.
yeah, especially after his spooning sessions…
Psy Bard?! Psy Bard?! Are you fucking kidding me? They make a password with an shitty audio only clue of two words that sound similar to many other combos and they expect you to type the correct ones?
I could have sworn it said – Side Bar, or was it Sigh Bar, or was it Sight Barred, or was it Sly Bar…etc.? :D
I loved the Modern Warfare 2 joke. “They made it so you had to play through company run servers, they took away dedicated servers..Fuck em!”
Great ending too. “I'm very sad all of a sudden.” LMAO.
Everytime I see Walken in this, he reminds me of that library cop from 'Seinfeld'“I got a flash for you, joy-boy: party time is over!”
Games like Ripper always struck me as egotistical efforts by socially shunned developers to dream up a world where they were the ones getting all the attention while the jocks that beat them up in high school ceased to exist in any meaningful fashion. Certainly nobody over the age of 40 would find Ripper’s “C-space” realm to be appealing: it’s slow as hell to get anything done, half the security employed involves ridiculously tedious and nonsensical video games (which do a piss-poor job at security since genuine users and hackers alike have an equal level of frustration of getting into the system), and all of the environments (even the LIBRARY) look like they were designed to appeal to some 14-year-old’s wet dream of a CGI reality. I mean really, jet-powered statues in the library? Lava, skulls and pentagrams everywhere? Most Goths would say this place is overdoing it.
At least the riff’s fun. Bring on the snark, Spoony One!
Why would a cafe that had a brutal murder which happened not 24 hours ago be fully open to the public again?
She's the only one with a rock solid alibi, not to mention she conveniently got attacked herself eliminating her from the list. Yet she survived unlike all the other victims. A strange coincidence since the ripper never seems to leave anyone alive.
Also she was defensive of the story when Quinlin asked. She had information on three other potential subjects to frame them, and was working alongside influential forces intimidating people to collect information.
All in all a more effective reporter that didn't have to bother with slider puzzles to get things done.
It's towards his shtick about the darkness. The game's motto was “What darkness conceals, terror reveals.” Unfortunately Shivers has only busy work puzzles. None of them are related to the plot or the demons at all. It's just random history meant to teach kids, while scaring them.
that's what happens *speaks misteriously* IN THE FUTURE!
what an anti-climatic ending… sheesh = /
-”Makes sense in theory.”-”No, it doesnt”
Intellectuall supersized monkeys who will takeover our society, how do you think this will turn out:
a, Dr. Zaiusb, Professor Bobo and Pearl as the lawgiver
No seriously. Stop saying “C-space.” No one has ever said that. Ever.
Jesus, you actually think that monkey joke is really, really funny, don't you?
PROTIP: It's not.
What precisely are you a “Pro” of ? ? Being a dipshit I would guess
Holy shit more? In just one day? You are spoiling me. I should make you my Supreme Leader of a really cool social group (aka cult) and bestow my wordly possessions upon you
Actually it was in the pyramid. Roughly “Some scientists believed the pyramids were built by ancient astronaughts, solve the puzzle”
I bet im the one geek in thousands that actually laughed at that <_<;
Great to see new episodes of Ripper up, Spoony.
You're slaying me, man.
The beginnig of this video was horrible. It looks like porn. Guy looks at some random papers. Another guy comes in, thrusting his hip and says “you look confused”. That was sick
'Ever heard of the Cafe?' …..THAT”S WHERE TUBBY BLEW UP! 'Have I heard of it? That's where I was arrested, you idiot!' :P
‘Ever heard of the Cafe?’ …..THAT”S WHERE TUBBY BLEW UP! ‘Have I heard of it? That’s where I was arrested, you idiot!’ :P
oh my god, when you did the “*slap* she was my sister!” thing, did you just make a reference to an obscure movie about teenagers with psychic powers that I can’t recall the title of?
It’s a reference to the movie Chinatown. Jack Nicholson, Faye Dunaway. Classic scene.
Liiive from the Luxor in beautiful Las Vegas, Nevada!……THE GREEN MAN GROUP!
I think one of the voice actors in this game did Ultima XI Ascension….*shudder*
I don’t know, it wolud’ve been more interesting if the guy who programmed ripper game actually punched the hole in time continium, so the real reaper would’ve been net ai digitalization of a real Jack the Ripper.
