632 - 10/14/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - The World Ends With You: Final Remix, Sony PSN Changes

10/21/2018
More
I played The World Ends With You: Final Remix on the Nintendo Switch, and it's unfortunately not a good replacement for the original Nintendo DS version. The internet is claiming that there is a nasty "hack" regarding sending a text message over the PlayStation Network, which is rendering PS4's inoperable. The good news about PSN is that you'll soon be able to change your name! With caveats, of course. Then we take calls about friends changing their online names, The World Ends With You, and...

631 - 10/07/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Walking Dead Game Continuation, Nintendo Online Clarifications

10/14/2018
More
I was at SIEGE in Atlanta this weekend, and played some great indie games that may or may not come out anytime soon. We got some great responses regarding the licensing scheme for Nintendo Switch digital downloads after the latest update, as well as a good primer on what the Low Latency mode of the NES games on the Switch is doing. Frame prediction 101! Skybound Games, founded by the original creator of The Walking Dead, will be finishing the Telltale series by hiring many of the original...

630 - 09/30/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Forza Horizon 4 Impressions, Oculus Quest

10/4/2018
More
The Southern Interactive Entertainment and Game Expo is this weekend in Atlanta - I'll be attending Thursday and Friday evenings. I got into Forza Horizon 4 with the Ultimate Edition people, so I give my impressions in THIS episode rather than after it comes out. Sony has allowed crossplay between PS4 and other consoles in Fortnite, and may evaluate allowing other games to join in the fun as well. Oculus announced the new Oculus Quest this week at Oculus Connect 5 - a new, untethered, six...

629 - 09/23/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Old School Musical Impressions, Telltale Closure

9/30/2018
More
I checked out Old School Musical on stream and really enjoyed the four button rhythm game that evokes gaming nostalgia. The Nintendo Switch Online service launched and it's basically what they said it was. At Tokyo Games Show, Sony announced the PlayStation Classic, to continue the trend of selling mini consoles of retro titles. Telltale Games has started a majority studio closure and laid off all but 25 of their employees - with no severance or warning. Then we talk to OLR about classic...

628 - 09/16/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Nintendo Switch Online Direct Reactions

9/20/2018
More
The Nintendo Switch Online Direct finally came out, and a lot of big game announcements were made, but it turns out that the actual online service isn't any more than what was already released. There's also a little talk of the Forza Horizon 4 demo sprinkled in, regarding the Xbox One X features (4k vs 60fps) and if you really need to spend 27GB of your bandwidth cap for it. Then we take calls about the Asmodee board games coming to Switch.

627 - 09/09/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Dragon Con Recap, Bally Williams Pinball's New Digital Home

9/10/2018
More
It's Dreamcast Day! Where were you on 9/9/99? Dragon Con is now over, and it was really good for VOG Network's visibility around the various tracks. During Dragon Con, we announced a major change for the Voice of Geeks Network - we are leaving internet radio and moving our live programming to Twitch by the end of 2018. A portion of this episode is dedicated to discussing the reasoning behind the move. Bally and Williams pinball tables may be gone from The Pinball Arcade, but they are going...

626 - 08/26/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Dragon Con Preview, Amazon and Twitch Prime Changes

8/29/2018
More
We begin by discussing the tragic events out of Jacksonville, Florida. Note that we record the podcast on Sunday nights, so details were still scarce at the time. Dragon Con is coming up - and I'm moderating SIX PANELS! Amazon has announced that Twitch Prime subscribers will be losing ad-free viewing, and that Amazon Prime subscribers will be losing their 20% new game discount. Then we talk to OLR about Pokemon Go and Dragon Con.

625 - 08/19/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - PlayStation VR Market Dominance, Forza Horizon 2 Delisting

8/26/2018
More
The Monster Hunter demo on Switch sucks. There was a surprise announcement for Diablo 3 on Switch, but it really feels like it was cut out of a larger Nintendo Direct, perhaps about online?? PlayStation VR has hit 3 million units sold, which flies in the face of people on the internet saying that it flopped. Forza Horizon 2 is currently the August Xbox Live Game with Gold, but in a month it's going to be removed from the store entirely. Then we take calls about Sword Coast Legends, Dragon...

624 - 08/12/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Magic Leap One: Creator Edition, ROM Site Closes Doors

8/19/2018
More
The show starts about a non-gaming related topic that is difficult to discuss, but sometimes necessary regarding people's battle with depression. Dragon Con is in just a few weeks, and I'll be on SIX PANELS! Magic Leap is real, and for just $2300 they'll come to your house (in select cities) and set one up for you. ROM Archival site EmuParadise has taken down all of their ROMs due to the current legal landscape. Then we take calls about piracy.

623 - 08/05/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Atari Games in Tesla Cars, Racing Game Microtransactions

8/10/2018
More
I'm going to be moderating SIX PANELS at Dragon Con! I'm still enjoying the No Man's Sky NEXT update, although we've found some interesting syncing issues when trying to play in the same system but not at the same time. Elon Musk announced that Atari games will soon be playable inside actual Tesla cars - I'll translate some of that for you as a Tesla Model S 70D owner since 2015. Turn 10 Studios is removing Prize Packs from Forza Motorsport 7 and the upcoming Forza Horizon 4, and not going...

622 - 07/29/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - No Man's Sky NEXT's Comeback Story

8/6/2018
More
Who would have thought in 2016 that No Man's Sky would be one of the greatest comeback stories in gaming? There's a LOT of talk about early impressions of the NEXT update, and how it has captured my heart, at least in the beginning. Time will tell how long that lasts. Taiko no Tatsujin is coming stateside on both the PS4 and the Switch - but questions about control schemes are abound. Then we take calls about Octopath Traveler and No Man's Sky.

7/29/2018

Octopath Traveler is out, and so far (all of the chapter 1's) it's pretty great. The free NEXT update to No Man's Sky is coming out, and Hello Games' Sean Murray finally started talking to the media again. Then we take calls about No Man's Sky and people's reaction to gaming announcements.

620 - 07/15/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Aliens: Colonial Marines Typo, Unreal Engine Marketplace Changes

7/20/2018
More
I appeared on Tipster Gaming's Twitch and YouTube channels to, hopefully for the last time, discuss my moderating job on the Billy Mitchell panel. Looking forward to moving on. This weekend I attended and spoke at Atlanta Comic Con, a first time convention, about podcasting and streaming media. A typo in an INI configuration file in 2013's Aliens: Colonial Marines made the AI a whole lot better. Epic Games has announced that creators in the Unreal Engine Marketplace (a place for assets that...

7/12/2018

I'm going to be at Atlanta Comic Con this weekend with Charles McFall and Roberto Blake talking about podcasting and social media communities! Amazon Prime has removed their 20% new release discount from games they deem to be "remakes or remasters" - possibly in response to Best Buy eliminating their discount. More information about the upcoming Intellivision reboot has come out, including about the controller. Then we take calls about H-Hour: World's Elite, SOCOM, and current state of the...

7/8/2018

Summer Games Done Quick just concluded, raising over $2mil for charity. I want to learn TASBot now. Toys'r'Us may be gone, but the NES Classic is back in stock! PUBG Corp has dropped its lawsuit against Epic Games, makers of Fortnite. Microsoft quietly announced a Stream To Win initiative with Forza Horizon 4, giving in-game rewards for streaming or watching Forza streams on Mixer. Then we take calls about the SNES Classic and Lumines Remastered.

Summer Games Done Quick has started, benefiting Doctors Without Borders. The Billy Mitchell panel from Southern Fried Gaming Expo has been posted to YouTube...The comments aren't too bad about my "performance." Microsoft and Nintendo have started promoting crossplay between consoles with their new Minecraft partnership. The new people in charge of the Atari name got mad at UK website The Register for writing a negative article about the VCS, and The Register decided to post the audio of the...

6/23/2018

Before we talk about E3, I respond a little bit to the recent Variety article regarding the Billy Mitchell panel I moderated. Hopefully it is the last time we'll be talking about it for a while. E3 was this week! Lots of cinematic experiences from Sony, and games coming in 2019 from everyone else. Fortnite has been released on the Switch, and now people are learning that if they ever linked their Epic account with their PS4, they can not access that account (or their purchases) on the...

6/14/2018

The Southern Fried Gaming Expo was this weekend, and I hosted a newsworthy panel with the former King of Kong, Billy Mitchell. It was later written about in Variety, but the first time I talked about how my moderating time went was on this show from the night after it happened. Microsoft's press conference had already happened when we recorded, so I talked about what they showed, but mostly what they revealed afterwards about Forza Horizon 4.

6/7/2018

The Southern Fried Gaming Expo is THIS WEEKEND and I'm hosting the "Road To Redemption" panel with Billy Mitchell and Walter Day, and kind of freaking out over what to ask. Just Shapes & Beats has finally come out on Steam and the Nintendo Switch, and it's a really fun frustrating game you can dance to. I tried the Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner PSVR demo for a listener, and I can't really say I recommend it as a VR experience. Video Games Live founder Tommy Tallarico has taken over...

VOG is sponsoring the Southern Fried Gaming Expo on June 8-10, and I will be moderating a panel with Billy Mitchell and Walter Day! Mike Fahey from Kotaku has been in the hospital for several months. He should be returning to us soon, though. Valve has released a Steam Link app for smartphones, which allow you to play games from your PC on your Android phone. Apple, unfortunately, has rejected the iPhone app due to "business conflicts with app guidelines." Then we take calls about getting...
