Miiverse Preservation Project, Classic Edition Supply

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 17, 2017

While I don't really talk about the Nintendo Direct, I do talk a little bit about the Project Octopath Traveler demo on the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo may be shutting down their social network, but a former listener is hoping to archive all of Miiverse before it goes away. Nintendo also claims to be putting out more units of the SNES Classic as well as bringing back the NES Classic in 2018. Then we take calls about the Dragon Ball FighterZ beta, Rigs, and Fantasy Strike.

Dragon Con 2017 Wrapup, Journalists Bad At Games

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 10, 2017

I'm back from Dragon Con and I'm inspired and looking forward to the year ahead. We have a followup from a previous call about if Nintendo has any competition this holiday season, and a commenter says that Sony is a worthy challenger. At Dragon Con, I sat in on a panel by Al Lowe, creator of Leisure Suit Larry, and he talked about his time at Sierra On-Line before the company was stolen from Ken Williams. I discuss that I might want to do more Twitch streaming and be more of a positive influence, but that leads into how Dean Takahashi, someone who has been covering the video game industry for 25 years and is respected by many (including myself), was drug through the mud for uploading a humorous video of him not doing too well at a difficult indie game. Then we take calls about video game soundtracks and reviews.

HTC Possibly Selling Vive Division, Darkwood Piracy

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - August 27, 2017

I'm going to be at Dragon Con all week, come say hi, or just follow along on the VOG Network Discord! HTC might be looking to sell its Vive division, because it's the only part of their business worth anything right now. The developers of Darkwood, a game recently out of Early Access, put their game up on The Pirate Bay rather than give free keys to people who would just sell them on key-reselling sites. Then we take calls and chat comments about Pokken Tournament DX and what Nintendo can do to stop the angst over the SNES Classic preorders.

PlayStation Network Social Media Hacked, One-Handed JoyCons

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - August 20, 2017

The Total Solar Eclipse was the day after the recording of this episode, so there was several minutes of excitement. I'll be on SIX panels at Dragon Con (only five at the time of recording) so come say hi! The Xbox One X preorders went on sale, and sold out like they were classic Nintendo systems. The PlayStation Network Social Media accounts were hacked, but it doesn't necessarily mean the actual gaming network was. AltspaceVR is back! They never really shut down... A one-handed JoyCon adapter was created to allow handicapped gamers to play Zelda with only one hand. Then we take calls about GoG, if Nintendo has any competition this holiday season, Night Trap 25th Anniversary Edition, an upcoming Fallout Board Game, and Dragon Con.

Xbox One Creators Collection, Fig Actually Works

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - August 13, 2017

I'm speaking on four panels at Dragon Con in Atlanta over Labor Day Weekend - come say hi! Microsoft has launched the Creators Collection, an unfiltered and uncurated section of indie games reminiscent of Xbox Live Indie Games. Crowdfunding platform Fig, which allows you to invest rather than just donated, just had its first success with Kingdoms and Castles. Random tangents from chat include lightning striking your house, Artemis Bridge Simulator vs. Star Trek: Bridge Crew, and Spooky Pinball releasing their first original table.
