696 - 02/09/20 Bobby Blackwolf Show - PSO2 Beta Impressions, NVIDIA GeForce NOW Launched

BIG Congrats to Gamertag Radio for publishing their 1000th episode! Check out their interview with Phil Spencer, head of Xbox. We got some viewer comments about Kingdom Hearts 3: ReMind as well as the thrashing that Blizzard has been getting from the public recently. Phantasy Star Online 2 is FINALLY coming to the west, and the Xbox One exclusive closed beta was this weekend...I might have played (and streamed) it a lot... NVIDIA has officially launched GeForce NOW, a Google Stadia...


695 - 01/26/20 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Plague, Inc Not Educational, Muting Isn't 1st Amendment Violation

We start off with some viewer comments about why cosmetic DLC is okay now but might not have been in the days of Oblivion Horse Armor. The developers of the mobile game Plague, Inc. have begged people to not learn about how diseases spread solely from their game, and instead look to real scientific institutions. A US Federal Court has declared that being muted in a video game does not violate an American's first amendment right to free speech. Psyonix has announced that Rocket League will...


694 - 01/19/20 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Cyberpunk 2077 Delay Crunch, Horizon: Zero Dawn Rumored PC Port

We begin by reading comments from viewers about microtransactions, Xbox Series X exclusives, and why Pokemon DLC is bad for some people. Cyberpunk 2077 has been delayed from April to September, but that doesn't mean that CD Projekt Red has eliminated crunch time for it's developers. Horizon: Zero Dawn is rumored to be coming to PC even though it's a first party Sony title, but it doesn't mean the death of the PlayStation console. Sprinkled throughout the show is talk of Forza Horizon 4's...


693 - 01/12/20 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Xbox Series X Exclusives, Arcade1up CES Lineup

Awesome Games Done Quick has finished, reaching $3.13 million - and I got a donation read on the air! Microsoft announced that the Xbox Series X will have no exclusive first party games for the first year or so, which means they will all be playable on Xbox One and Windows 10. Arcade1up had a large showing at CES this week, featuring an online enabled NBA Jam as well as digital pinball tables in partnership with Zen Studios. Then we take calls about the Pokemon Sword and Shield DLC news,...


692 - 01/05/20 Bobby Blackwolf Show - A Look Ahead At 2020's Games and Consoles

This episode was recorded on January 5th - sorry for the late posting. The January 12th show will be posted this Friday morning. Awesome Games Done Quick has just started, benefiting the Prevent Cancer Foundation. I know I said I'd be there, but... MAGFest just happened, which is really a great festival that falls on a very difficult weekend. We got some listener comments about how 2019 and the decade ended up, and then talked about games coming up that we know about releasing in 2020. The...


691 - 12/29/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - A Look Back On A Decade Of Gaming

In this mostly unstructured episode, we look back on a decade of gaming headlines from this show. We also award our own Game of the Year as well as discuss some of the most influential games of the decade.


690 - 12/22/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - PS4 Back Button Attachment, Witcher Devs Pay Author

Sony has announced a new Back Button Attachment to the PS4 Dualshock 4 - and it could be a preview of a standard PS5 feature. CD Projekt, publishers of The Witcher game series, and Andrzej Sapkowski, author and creator of The Witcher universe, have kissed and made up with a new licensing deal that benefits both parties. Google Stadia has just acquired indie developer Typhoon Studios and will integrate them into their Stadia game development teams for future first party development. Then we...


689 - 12/15/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - The Game Awards Recap, MLB: The Show Going Multiplatform

The Game Awards took place, and I didn't hate it! Microsoft announced the Xbox Series X at The Game Awards, and announced some of its features. Sony's first party sports title MLB: The Show is going multiplatform in 2021, but it doesn't mean that God of War or Uncharted is. Then OLR and I talk more about The Game Awards and what was announced (or not announced) during the broadcast.


688 - 12/08/19 - Bobby Blackwolf Show - Tron: Evolution DRM Broken, E3's Media Attendance

We responded to episode comments about people accepting streaming games in the future and the upcoming (as of the broadcast) Game Awards - sorry this is up so late so comments on this episode won't be read on the next episode. Intellivision has shown actual hardware and software for the upcoming Amico system, including the LED-enabled disc controller with touchscreen, and shows it actually working. Tron: Evolution owners on PC are no longer able to validate their legally purchased copy,...


687 - 12/1/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Beat Games to Facebook, Not Hating The VGA's

We start off with some viewer comments about Google Stadia, Half-Life: Alyx and VR, and game streaming in general. The Steam Controller is dead. Long live the Steam Controller. Facebook has purchased Beat Games, the studio that brought you Beat Saber, and while it doesn't mean that Beat Saber will be Oculus exclusive, it might mean that modding will be clamped down and that their next game will be an Oculus exclusive. The Game Awards are coming up, and while it's trendy to hate on them and...


686 - 11/24/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Google Stadia Impressions, Half-Life: Alyx Confirmed

We open with a tribute to one of the main creators of EverQuest, Brad McQuaid, who passed away at the age of 51. I got my Google Stadia Founders Edition, and the technology works and uses a lot of data, but the service isn't there yet. Like the old AT&T You Will ads predicted, game streaming WILL be how we play games in the future, but the company to bring it to us will NOT be Google. Valve announced Half-Life: Alyx, a new AAA VR game coming out in March of 2020. A lot of people are asking...


685 - 11/17/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Commodore 64 Virtual Reality, Dreamhack Atlanta Recap

I went to Dreamhack Atlanta on Saturday and basked in the glow of the bright stages of esports, even though it's not really a part of gaming I'm into...I still had a great time, though. On Sunday, I went to a retro exhibit at the Computer Museum of America in Roswell, GA, and got to try VR64 - a WORKING Virtual Reality headset for the Commodore 64! Google Stadia is launching this week without some advertised features...and without some founders not getting their hardware on time....


684 - 11/10/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Content Creator's Right To Play Video Games?

I'm going to be at Dreamhack Atlanta on Saturday - come say hi if you see me wandering around! A bunch of new games came out that people are playing or watching, including Terry Bogard in Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Norman Reedus with a Creepy Fetus in Death Stranding. Epic Games has permanently banned a popular YouTube Content Creator from Fortnite for using an aimbot on his channel. Other streamers say that the ban is too harsh for a content creator, but is just fine for regular...


683 - 11/03/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - EA Returning To Steam And Maybe The College Gridiron?

We continue our conversation from the podcast comments about Google Stadia and discuss some things that happened (or didn't happen) at BlizzCon. The NCAA has announced that they will look into allowing student athletes to profit off of their Name, Image, and Likeness, which opens the door for the EA Sports NCAA Football series to make a grand return after being shut down in 2014. EA will be selling games on Steam for the first time since 2011, with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order being the...


682 - 10/27/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Arcade1up Star Wars Impressions, The Outer Worlds Impressions

We start off with a viewer comment on Google Stadia and how the controller won't be connecting wirelessly to anything but a Google Chromecast at launch. I got my Video Games Live Kickstarter awards, including a red vinyl with the Pokemon theme. (So hipster!) I picked up my first Arcade1up cabinet - Star Wars - and after four hours of putting it together, I finally got to be terrible at Star Wars! (Video of this segment is available on the VOG Network YouTube channel.) The Outer Worlds has...


681 - 10/20/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Stadia Controller Not Wifi, Xbox Live Language AI

A viewer asked us about if the Sony really said that the PS5 would be backwards compatible - the real answer is "maybe". They also asked about predictions over Blizzcon thanks to recent world events. It has come out that the official controller for Google Stadia is only wireless with a Google Chromecast, and that raises questions on if it really does connect over wifi to the datacenter rather than going through your existing device. Microsoft has AI that looks at the text messaging feature...


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

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

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

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

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...
