LEGO NES Kit, Apple Protecting You From xCloud

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - August 9, 2020

I am ACTUALLY hosting a shift at Summer Games Done Quick 2020 Online! Catch me Wednesday night, 10PM ET/7PM PT hosting the Devil May Cry 4 speedrun. If you wish to donate, please DO NOT MENTION this podcast or VOG Network as it will not even make it to me, but you can donate towards the host's choice of incentive which I will choose that night based on what incentive needs help. The Intellivision Amico has been delayed to April of 2021 due to obvious reasons. Apple proclaimed that they are protecting their customers by not allowing Microsoft's Project xCloud and Google Stadia on iOS devices because they wish to individually review each and every title on the services. The LEGO NES Kit has arrived, and I built the $230 behemoth and talk about the building process as well as how it works. Then we talk to OLR about LEGO building and Apple's stance on cloud gaming services.

LEGO Super Mario Impressions, Flight Simulator VR Support

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - August 2, 2020

We start with a viewer recommendation for Rogue Company out on the Nintendo Switch. Microsoft Flight Simulator will have VR close to launch - but only for the HP Reverb G2 headset. The LEGO Super Mario sets have now come out, and we take a look at how this set differs from other LEGO sets, as well as how the interactivity takes place between the base set and various expansions. Then we talk to OLR about how LEGO Dimensions might have inspired LEGO Super Mario.

Xbox Games Showcase, The Return Of G4TV

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 26, 2020

The Xbox Games Showcase was this week, and there were actual gameplay reveals! But, does it signal that Xbox is bowing out of the "console wars" and going in a different direction? (Note: during the Xbox Showcase conversation, there was discussion about Tetris Effect Connected and it's lack of VR. I didn't realize at the time of recording that it was also going to be an update for the existing versions of Tetris Effect, so I can still play it in PSVR even though it's going to be on Xbox Game Pass.) At San Diego Comic-Com this weekend, the G4 Television Network announced that they will be returning in 2021 - we have some theories as to where. Then we talk to OLR about G4 and Game Pass.

Metacritic Asks You To Wait, Microsoft Discontinuing Xbox Stuff

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 19, 2020

We first celebrate the fact that we've been on the air for almost 15 years, but really there's not much celebration. Comments from a previous episode are shared about if games should cater to everyone and if you need to play every AAA title. LEGO is releasing a $230 kit that has a NES and TV with a rotating World 1-1, and I want it. Metacritic is asking you to wait 36 hours after release before submitting a user review for a game. Microsoft has discontinued the manufacturing of the Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. Microsoft has also discontinued the digital sale of 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscriptions. Then we talk to OLR about all these discontinuing and the possibility of online play being free on the Xbox ecosystem.

Sony Invests In Epic, Should Games Cater To Everyone?

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 12, 2020

I contributed a video to the Virtual Southern-Fried Gaming Expo about how we used to play pinball at home before people could bring actual pinball tables home. Dragon Con has finally been cancelled 60 days out of the convention. There will be a virtual event in its place. Sony has made a strategic financial investment in Epic Games, further cementing their relationship with the Unreal Engine technology for both games and movies. A chat on our Discord about The Last Of Us Part II spurned a discussion on if games need to cater to everyone, and why the terms "play" and "game" might be holding back the medium. Then we take calls about video game pinball turning real, and the possibility of travelling in a year or two.
