Content Creator's Right To Play Video Games?

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - November 10, 2019

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 people. Is the 17-year old YouTuber's career ruined? In other YouTube news, many fans of another popular content creator got completely banned from Google for playing along with an emoji game in a livestream chat. Banned from GOOGLE, not just YouTube.

EA Returning To Steam And Maybe The College Gridiron?

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - November 3, 2019

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 first game to be on both Steam and Origin. Then we take calls about the entire NCAA suite of games from the previous generation.

Arcade1up Star Wars Impressions, The Outer Worlds Impressions

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - October 27, 2019

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 come out, and it's available on Xbox Game Pass, so I decided to try it out. Then we take calls about Sigma Theory, Oculus Venues, and Rob's work trip to a learning conference that had a lot of VR and AR talk.

Stadia Controller Not Wifi, Xbox Live Language AI

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - October 20, 2019

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 to distinguish rude behavior, but wants to expand that to real time voice chat filtering. I played the Dreams Early Access on PS4, which is Media Molecule's next design tool after LittleBigPlanet. It has one glaring flaw.

PlayStation 5, Google Stadia's Negative Latency

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - October 13, 2019

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.
