Tetris 99, Activision Blizzard

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - February 17, 2019

There was a surprise Nintendo Direct, and they launched the Battle Royale game that will defeat all the others - Tetris 99. Free to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers! I played it on Twitch! It turns out that Expert Plus players of Beat Saber are inhuman - so much so, that Valve had to update SteamVR to allow for faster movements than they thought humanly possible. Activision Blizzard had a confusing week - announcing record profits while laying off 8% of their workforce at the exact same time. We examine some of the reasons that might have happened. Then we take calls about Tetris 99, TetriNET, Pac Man Vs, and board games like Pandemic and Codenames.

Kingdom Hearts III Impressions, Metro Exodus Exclusitivity

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - February 10, 2019

Kingdom Hearts III is finally out! I give some early impressions and tell you if you really need to know the story to enjoy it. I also received a BRAND NEW SNES game! Fork Parker's Crunchout from Devolver Digital and Mega Cat Studios. I played it on Twitch! Metro Exodus has been deemed exclusive to the Epic Games Store, even after it has been available for preorder on Steam for months. A developer did not take kindly to the fan reaction. Then we take calls about the Oculus Go, Oculus Quest, and board games.

Anthem Server Issues, Metroid Prime 4 Restart

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - January 27, 2019

We talked about a comment from Discord about immersion and VR, and how it desensitizes people from violence. Anthem had some server issues during their demo - and I explain why they happened even though every multiplayer game release has issues. Mobile game Westworld Mobile is being shut down because Bethesda alleged that they stole code from Fallout Shelter. Nintendo has announced that Metroid Prime 4 is being delayed by them starting over with a new developer. Because nobody called on Discord, we vamped about Kingdom Hearts 3 and then talked to OLR about Kingdom Hearts 3.

SiNKR 2 Interview, More Cross-Platform Games

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - January 20, 2019

We feature an interview from SIEGE 2018 with Robert Wahler of Wahler Digital about SiNKR 2, a minimalist puzzle game coming very soon to Steam, Android, and iOS. Catch the video version of the interview on the VOG Network YouTube channel. Star Control: Origins is back on Steam - while the initial DMCA complaint has been dismissed, there's still a lot of court dates in the future to determine the direction of the franchise and who owns it. We talked a little bit about Mortal Kombat 11 and how it's gonna be great for some people. The Unity Game Engine has changed their Terms of Service again, and allows people to use older Terms and reactivates Improbable's licenses to work on the SpatialOS cloud system - stating they are not an official partner and will not be officially supported by Unity. Rocket League has gotten full cross-platform cross-play with Steam, Switch, Xbox One, AND PS4. Then we take calls on DISCORD about playing Beat Saber for the first time and hardware predictions for 2019.

Improbable vs. Unity, Star Control vs. Stardock History

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - January 13, 2019

We got a comment on a previous episode about the MAGFest lanyards, and we should have sent some VOG lanyards... Awesome Games Done Quick raised $2.4mil for Prevent Cancer Foundation! We got a comment on Discord that we didn't cover more of the history behind Star Control and Stardock's legal woes, so we went back in time. In another legal battle in gaming, the Unity game engine changed their Terms of Service and banned Improbable's SpatialOS and seemingly also caused several games already released to be in violation. (But not really.) Then we talked to OLR about AGDQ.
