680 - 10/13/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - PlayStation 5, Google Stadia's Negative Latency

10/19/2019
More
I went to SIEGE, Atlanta's Game Developer Conference, and got to play some locally made games that may or may not come out anytime soon. Sony has formally announced the PlayStation 5, and talked more about its haptic controller and solid state drives. Google claims that the Stadia will use "Negative Latency" to remove lag on games streamed on their service. Then we take calls about Twitch ads and PlayStation backwards compatibility.

679 - 10/06/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Canadian Lawyers v. Fortnite, Intellivision Amico Commandments

10/10/2019
More
This coming weekend, I will be at SIEGE at Kennesaw State University outside of Atlanta, for the Southeastern US's version of the Game Developer Conference. Lawyers in Canada are attempting to file a class action lawsuit against Fortnite for being so addictive, parents can't control their kids' screen time. A patch is out for Super Mario Maker 2 that finally gives you the ability to play online with friends, but it also has LAN Play? Intellivision released their 10 Commandments of Game...

678 - 09/29/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Mario Kart Tour Lootboxes, Tilt Five Augmented Reality

10/4/2019
More
Mario Kart Tour is now out on mobile - and it is definitely a lootbox and microtransaction game, complete with very low odds. The Untitled Goose Game is great - I played it on Twitch and had a honkin good time. A new Kickstarter has launched that has real promise in the Augmented Reality space - Tilt Five - and it's aimed at board games. At Oculus Connect 6, we didn't hear much about the Rift line, except to say that the Oculus Quest will soon be able to play all Rift games. Is this the end...

677 - 09/22/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - SEGA Genesis Mini, E3 2020's Proposed Changes

9/26/2019
More
If you recently got a Nintendo Switch Lite to augment your existing Nintendo Switch, there's something you'll need to do to allow your Lite to play your digital games while not connected to the internet. The SEGA Genesis Mini is out - and it's a really well made trip down memory lane! A leaked presentation has shown that the ESA intends to change E3 2020 from an industry trade show to an influencer-infused festival. Then we take calls about The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and it's...

676 - 09/15/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Ring Fit Adventure, UK House of Commons Looting Lootboxes

9/21/2019
More
At Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix showed that Final Fantasy VII Remake will have a "Classic Mode" that makes the game totally turn based once again, giving an option to those who don't necessarily want the new action elements to the combat. Death Stranding was also shown, and it is a showcase of what Hideo Kojima will do when there's nobody to tell him "no." Nintendo's new experience is Ring Fit Adventure, a game where Wii Fit meets Final Fantasy - a fitness game with a story. The Discord...

675 - 09/08/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Dragon Con 2019 Recap, Nintendo's New Experience

9/14/2019
More
We recap Dragon Con 2019 with what panels I did, and talking about the growing video game scene at the show on the other side of the country from PAX. Nintendo finally released SNES games on the Nintendo Switch Online service, but then announced that they were discontinuing regular updates, which means we'll get less new games less often. They also teased a new experience with a "ring" controller that we'll talk about more on the next episode. Death Stranding is going to have a Bobby...

674 - 08/25/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - MS Contractors Listening To You, Intellivision Amico @ Gamescom

8/28/2019
More
Dragon Con is next weekend, so there will be no live show. See me on any of my seven panels, several of which streaming on the Digital Media Track's Twitch channel! I tried No Man's Sky VR with both the Move controllers and the Valve Index Knuckles controllers (rather than a Dualshock) and the flight mechanics kill the experience for me. At Gamescom, the new trailer for the Intellivision Amico was released, touting a family friendly system for non-hardcore gamers. Are Microsoft contractors...

673 - 08/18/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - No Man's Sky BEYOND, Indie Dev Declines EGS

8/23/2019
More
I was on the YouTube show VR365 this week, talking about a bunch of things VR! I'll be at Dragon Con, hosting and moderating on seven panels! I played No Man's Sky BEYOND on the PlayStation 4 with PSVR - and it is still a great redemption story. Forza Motorsport 6 is being delisted, but it's currently free on Xbox Live Gold and the ultimate DLC collection is only $5. DARQ developer Unfold Games turned down an Epic Game Store exclusivity offer, and then Epic denied them for listing on their...

8/16/2019

I went to my first Gen Con, which is billed as The Best Four Days in Gaming, and I gotta say...They're not exactly wrong, as long as you're into board, card, and tabletop games. I'm going to be on or moderating seven different panels at Dragon Con, including a big one with some voiceover artists you've definitely heard. Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft have all stated that they will soon require disclosures of odds on all Loot Boxes coming to their consoles. A survey of VR developers has found...

671 - 07/28/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Classic Doom Release, Joy Con Fixes

7/31/2019
More
I'm going to be going to my first Gen Con next weekend! I'll be there to play some board games and hopefully steer clear of any high score drama. A Bethesda.net login is NOT required to listen to this podcast, but it IS required to play some classic Doom remasters on the Nintendo Switch. Many memes were made, including one from yours truly. Nintendo has instructed its repair center to fix drifting Joy Cons free of charge to hopefully get rid of a class action lawsuit. Then we take calls...

670 - 07/21/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Tetris Effect PC, Google Stadia as Netflix?

7/27/2019
More
A viewer comment discusses possibly using the Valve Index controllers to teach American Sign Language, but it might not actually be the best idea YET. The PlayStation Classic finally dropped to $20, so now I have one. I also ordered the Turbografx-16 Mini for five times the price. Tetris Effect is launching on PC this week, but exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Plot twist: you still need Steam to run it in VR. A Reddit AMA revealed that Google Stadia is NOT intended to be a Netflix for...

7/18/2019
More
I attended the Southern Fried Gaming Expo in Atlanta, and played a whole lot of pinball - including a privately-created one-of-a-kind Spaceballs table! I also spoke on several panels. Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite, and there's a very specific audience it's intended for. Does this mean that developers will stop supporting features not in the Lite version? Then we talk to OLR about where to start in collecting Pinball tables.

I will be at the Southern Fried Gaming Expo this weekend and appearing on three panels on Saturday! I created some Super Mario Maker 2 levels for you to check out: Flappin Mario (R0T-V21-R5G) and Relaxing Long Jumps (1WD-J94-GLG) The Epic Games Store will be covering refunds for crowdfunded projects that used to promise Steam rewards. I got my Valve Index VR headset with the new Knuckles Controllers, and I explain why it's now my go to headset for VR. Then we talk to OLR about Super Mario...

There is no live show on June 30th, so stay safe until July 7th! VOG is sponsoring the Southern Fried Gaming Expo on July 12-14th in Atlanta. Come play some pinball and arcade! Tesla cars got a racing game that uses the touchsccreen - Beach Buggy Racing 2 - but it could possibly damage your tires and brakes if you play it with the actual steering wheel and brake pedal. Kids game development platform Roblox has been accused of stealing it's meme-filled "Oof" dying sound from a Tommy Tallarico...

6/24/2019

There was a lot of news that came out of E3, but I really screwed up trying to get Ultimate and now have three years worth of Xbox Live Gold codes I can't use. Beat Saber got a DLC pack full of Imagine Dragons songs. Konami announced the TurboGrafx-16! Final Fantasy VIII is finally being remastered! Banjo-Kazooie is in Smash! Animal Crossing was delayed to 2020, and Nintendo's new President Doug Bowser says it was to preserve work-life balance for the development team. Shenmue 3 was...

6/16/2019

It's the weekend before E3, but there's already a lot of announcements to talk about. Google gave more details about Stadia, including when it's going to be out and how much it could cost. Also, how much bandwidth it will take up. Microsoft's E3 press conference also happened, so we talk about Game Pass Ultimate, Xbox Scarlett, and a surprising acquisition. Then we talk to OLR about what we've already seen from E3.

6/8/2019

E3 is coming next week, and we'll be on the air during the Bethesda conference, but not reacting to it live. Super Smash Bros Ultimate released a VR mode with Nintendo Labo this week, and it's not as vomit inducing as Zelda! Kickstarter backers of Antstream Arcade got into an Early Access Closed Beta this week, and I had some time with the service. Cuphead is coming to Tesla cars - but not mine. Microsoft announced a new approach to PC gaming, including selling on Steam, bringing Game Pass...

6/2/2019

I went to MomoCon in Atlanta for a couple of hours, and it's a great show that's not just anime. The Oculus Quest came out this week, and it sounds like it really is a liberating wire-free VR experience that is worth the money. I, however, got an Oculus Rift S, and after having some issues getting it installed (headset sensors weren't tracking) I really like the fixes they made. There is now proposed legislation to ban loot boxes and pay-to-win microtransactions, but it might be too broad,...

5/26/2019

I'm going to my first Gen Con, but have just learned about the "Events" system, which shows why it's not like any other convention or trade show I've ever attended. Because of another revolution around the sun, I received some gifts to talk about. First up is the 8bitdo SN30 Pro controller - a bluetooth controller designed like a SNES controller that works with Windows, Android (along with a Raspberry Pi) and Nintendo Switch. I also received Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition for Xbox One,...

The show begins with me not getting the connection between "Happy Earthbound Day" and "Happy Mother's Day" and there was no way for me to edit it out to save me the embarrassment. (Get it? Earthbound is from the Mother series? I didn't until right after going off the air...) I saw Pokemon Detective Pikachu and give no spoilers, but tell you what I thought about the movie in general. Variety Gaming, a site that does actual journalism about the video game industry with investigations and...
