E3 Goes Virtual, Atari Restructures Into Two Divisions

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 11, 2021

We talk a little bit more about Niantic's AR Headset tease from last week, and why it may or may not have the same fate as Google Glass. Atari is restructuring into two divisions - Atari Gaming and Atari Blockchain, complete with NFT's. E3 is returning as an all-virtual event this year, and some people are wondering why they will ever bother going back to a physical event. Then we talk to OLR about the No Man's Sky Expedition Update.

Niantic Teases AR Headset, PlayStation Studios Game On Xbox Game Pass

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 4, 2021

This was the podcast of me getting corrected, as I was corrected on VR companies, HDMI vs DisplayPort, and USB2 vs USB3. Please accept my humble apologies and Price is Right fail horns. We do get some interesting insider info about the software architecture of PlayStations vs. Xbox. Summer Games Done Quick 2021 will once again, and hopefully for the last time, be a virtual event the week of July 4th. Here's hoping I'll make the cut to host again! Microsoft has announced that the Sony developed (but MLB published) MLB The Show 21 will be available on Xbox Game Pass on day one of its release - but it does not mean any other PlayStation exclusives are following suit. Niantic has teased an AR headset - does this mean that they might have figured out how to make AR headsets viable outside of the industrial or medical sector? Then we talk to OLR about No Man's Sky's Expeditions Update.

Sony Closing Stores, Xbox Live Rebrand, Discord Purchase?

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 28, 2021

We had a lot of fun with our VHS Gaming Tape bonus stream - if you are subscribed to the VOGNetwork Twitch channel, check out the VOD! Sony has (now confirmed) announcing the closure of the PS3, PSP, and Vita digital storefronts this summer. Since this was recorded, we learned that they are NOT closing down the ability to redownload existing purchases. Microsoft is rebranding Xbox Live to just the Xbox Network, further cementing their desire for an Xbox ecosystem rather than just a console. Microsoft is the current primary suitor for chat app Discord - what does this mean for the future of Discord communities if it happens? Then we talk to OLR about Sony's backwards compatibility and the future of Discord.

PS5 PSVR2 Controllers Revealed, Download Free PSVR Games

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 21, 2021

We had our Bonus Stream for the VHS Gaming Tape on Wednesday (after recording the podcast but before the podcast went up) - subscribe to our Twitch channel to watch the VOD! Sony's Save Migration from PS4 to PS5 continues to be special, this time with Marvel's Avengers. (Don't blame Crystal Dynamics on this one, y'all...) Sony has revealed the new controller for the PSVR2 coming next year (at the earliest) for the PS5 - which is very reminiscent of the Oculus Touch controllers (which is a good thing!) A bunch of good PSVR games (as well as good non-PSVR games) are currently free to download for all PS4 and PS5 owners via Sony's Play At Home promotion. Microsoft has reiterated that VR is not a focus for the Xbox ecosystem after a localization error in Italy caused confusion. Then we talk to OLR about the history of gaming podcasts as well as the fun of buying time on an AM radio station to do your own talk show.

Xbox Finalizes Bethesda Acquisition

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 14, 2021

There will be a bonus VHS Gaming Tape stream on Wednesday, March 24th at 9PM ET/6PM PT on the VOGNetwork Twitch channel, featuring promotional tapes and possibly some home movies from late 90's E3! (The date was announced after recording.) There is a little bit of current events talk regarding vaccines (and getting them) at the beginning of the show. We take some viewer comments regarding the challenges that hardware developers have had over the last year with social distancing requirements, as well as another reason why we're seeing so many remasters right now. There was some confusion on why transferring save games from the PS4 to the PS5 seemed inconsistent, and we break down some examples. Xbox's $7.5 Billion acquisition of Bethesda was finalized this week, which meant that a whole bunch of games appeared on Xbox Game Pass. But, in the long term, will we actually see big franchises launch day and date on PlayStation or Nintendo consoles? I received the Strong Bad Sings vinyl this week (which sold out in an hour) and we talk a little bit about the resurgence of vinyl in general, and I talk about how hipster I am with my game music OST collection. Then we talk to OLR about the Bethesda acquisition and what that might mean for non-Xbox platforms.
