I will be at the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 6.0 in Roswell, GA on April 21-22nd, showing off some 90's era DOS stuff! ADMISSION IS FREE!!!! Come say hi! The Ready Player One movie has now been out for a while, so let's talk about how I feel it's actually better than the book. The ESA has joined the battle against Net Neutrality - and I'll tell you why that could be important. It's not about throttling bandwidth. Then we take calls about Rocket League tournaments and video game...

I will be at the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 6.0 in Roswell, GA on April 21-22, showing off my 90's era DOS machine with high end sound equipment like a Roland MT-32 and Gravis Ultrasound! At GDC, Blockchain was apparently the big thing, but it really did nothing to improve games, just allows gamers to make money while playing. Also at GDC, Epic showed off new rendering technology in Unreal Engine that allows for real-time motion capture. Microsoft updated its Terms of Service to...

607 - 03/18/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Moss (PSVR) Impressions, Toys'R'Us Going Out Of Business

3/30/2018
More
I will be at the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 6.0 in Roswell, GA, on April 21st and 22nd, showing the same games I stream on Twitch. I played Moss, and I think it's the best exclusive game for PSVR, and a very well made VR game in general. Toys'R'Us is going out of business, but not for the reason you think. The International Olympic Committee has stated that they'd be open to esports being in the Olympics - as long as the games aren't violent. Then we take calls about Kirby Star...

3/11/2018

The Final Fantasy XV Windows Demo was out, and it messed with my sound settings...And Windows 10 also finally got me with a forced update. Sony will be removing PS3 and Vita titles form the PlayStation Plus free games lineup in 2019. Oculus has been showing the Epic Games "Bullet Train" demo at trade shows for over three years - after this past weekend, maybe they should have a replacement. Live event runner ReedPOP (PAX) has acquired Gamer Network, a media network with sites like...

604 - 02/25/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - System Shock Kickstarter, Steam Review Astroturfing

3/5/2018
More
I'm now a Twitch Affiliate, so that means now I can take your bits and subscriptions! Super Multitasking was released on Steam, and it's definitely worth your $5. I'm not biased. Maltese publisher Insel Games allegedly persuaded their employees to leave positive reviews of their games on Steam, which caused Valve to kick them off the storefront. The System Shock Remake Kickstarter has used up all of its funds, and has decided to make a new game instead of remaking the original. Then we...

My Wedding Shower was this weekend, and they played an interesting game regarding song lyrics...Can you guess some of what my friends couldn't? I'm on Twitch now because I can finally stream directly from my old DOS hardware, and actually hit Twitch Affiliate status since the recording of this show! NBC has released an amazing free VR app for the Winter Olympics - it's actually got some great ideas. Unfortunately, I don't think this type of content will stay free forever... Then we take...

2/18/2018

I checked out Mutant Football League on the PS4, and it's actually a pretty fun game. Kingdom Hearts 3 got a trailer that even claims it's coming out this year. Knack is FINALLY a PS Plus game - something I predicted would happen MUCH sooner. The Switch is the fastest selling console in the US. The PS4 is about to outsell the PS3 worldwide. Then we talk to OLR about VR in the Olympics and how to get your PSVR to stop drifting.

601 - 01/28/18 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Xbox Games With Gold Gets New Releases, GPU Shortage Due To BTC

2/9/2018
More
Sorry to those who played Paragon or Miitomo, as both games are being shut down in the next few months. Microsoft is adding first party new release games to their Games With Gold program. The rush on cryptocurrency has caused the price of GPU cards to skyrocket, so hope you didn't want to build a new gaming PC right now! Then we take calls about Xbox 360 games, what to do with old computers, and a DDR Freestyle tournament.

2/1/2018

It's our 600th Episode! And it's just like all of the others. Nothing really special. Nintendo has announced Labo, a cardboard-based ACTUAL REALITY gaming system. Gamers are mystified, but parents and young children are very excited. In lieu of calls (nobody called in), we talk about my upcoming 4K home theater build as well as having to restart RPG's from the beginning due to gamer ADD. Then we have a story about how buying Rock Band 4 nowadays might not actually get you the game.

1/28/2018

Awesome Games Done Quick is going on, and I discuss my views on speedrunning the other 50 weeks of the year outside of the GDQ marathons, and how some of the speedrunners treat game developers during the more glitched runs. I got Dropmix over the holidays, which is Harmonix's board/card game which lets you remix popular songs. At CES, the Vive Pro and Vive Wireless Adapter were announced, giving more resolution to the high end PC VR headset as well as true tetherless VR. Then we take calls...

Happy New Year! Anybody have any good recommendations on low latency audio gear for an upgraded podcasting rig? Friend of the show Drastic Actions has finally released his Miiverse Archive tool, which allow people to easily search what him and the Archive Team preserved.

12/10/2017

I played Desert Bus VR, a new version of the Penn & Teller Sega CD "classic", and it's driving a bus in the desert. I've also started playing Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, which I will probably stop playing next week. A lawsuit has been settled between Augmented Reality game makers and a city - with the AR game developers winning. A non-peer reviewed study says that Pokemon Go causes more vehicle deaths, so everybody should start panicking. Then we take calls about the triumphant return of...

11/28/2017

I beat Super Mario Odyssey! But I used an Amiibo as a glorified cheat code...Does it still count? I attempted to play Skyrim VR - a PlayStation VR exclusive - but the drifting issues on the PSVR made it next to impossible to play.

11/4/2017
More
I apologize for this episode being so late - I was out of town, then had spotty internet. There was no episode on October 29th. A gaming bar in Atlanta, Battle & Brew, is closing its doors on November 5th. EA has closed Visceral Games, who was making an Uncharted-style Star Wars game, which is now being retooled because the market wants Games as a Service, like Destiny. Then we take calls about some VR games coming out, as well as Jackbox Party Pack 4.

There was a big Madden NFL 18 update that gave a lot of accessibility features for the blind community, and it was really well thought out. Then we take a call about the Madden update.
