Microsoft Adaptive Controller, Vita Carts Discontinued

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - May 20, 2018

The Southern Fried Gaming Expo is June 8-10 in Atlanta, and I've been asked to moderate the most explosive panel at the event, and they aren't limiting me to questions about hot sauce. Microsoft has announced the Xbox Adaptive Controller, a fully customizable controller designed for the disabled. Sony has announced that physical cartridges for the Vita will cease production. Then we take calls about the Vintage Computer Festival East, and my home theater.

Beat Saber Impressions, Pinball Arcade Bally/Williams Delisting

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - May 13, 2018

Thanks for coming back after the two week hiatus! While I was on my honeymoon, I got to play Mario Kart Arcade DX, which has a very interesting Namco character as a playable racer. When I got back, I played the viral sensation Beat Saber on the HTC Vive, and...it's really good. I wound up streaming it on Twitch later that night. Nintendo announced Nintendo Online for a very low price, and also included a subscription service to play NES games online instead of paying for them individually. This is what we asked for in 2006, but now suddenly people would rather pay $5 for Balloon Fight again... FarSight Studios has lost the license to sell Bally and Williams pinball tables in The Pinball Arcade. This means that 61 of the 99 tables available on the platform are going away on June 30th, and they will NOT be on sale before that date. Then we take calls about Pinball Arcade and the SNES Classic.

Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 6.0, Voiding Warranties

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 22, 2018

I exhibited at the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 6.0 this weekend, and got to see the upcoming Computer Museum of America while there. Nintendo CEO Howard Lincoln once told Congress that Night Trap would never appear on a Nintendo console... The FTC has warned several companies - including console manufacturers - that you can't void the warranty just because a consumer uses their own devices on it. Then we talk a little bit more about my home theater and how Mr. Awesome might have been right all along.

Ready Player One, ESA vs. Net Neutrality

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 8, 2018

I will be at the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 6.0 in Roswell, GA on April 21-22nd, showing off some 90's era DOS stuff! ADMISSION IS FREE!!!! Come say hi! The Ready Player One movie has now been out for a while, so let's talk about how I feel it's actually better than the book. The ESA has joined the battle against Net Neutrality - and I'll tell you why that could be important. It's not about throttling bandwidth. Then we take calls about Rocket League tournaments and video game soundtracks.

Microsoft TOS Update, Unreal Engine Live Rendering

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 1, 2018

I will be at the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 6.0 in Roswell, GA on April 21-22, showing off my 90's era DOS machine with high end sound equipment like a Roland MT-32 and Gravis Ultrasound! At GDC, Blockchain was apparently the big thing, but it really did nothing to improve games, just allows gamers to make money while playing. Also at GDC, Epic showed off new rendering technology in Unreal Engine that allows for real-time motion capture. Microsoft updated its Terms of Service to crack down on offensive language, but your Skype account won't be shut down if you curse. (Most likely.) Since this episode was recorded, Georgia's Governor did, in fact, sign into law a cybersecurity bill that criminalizes cybersecurity - even by white hat hackers. Then we take calls about the closure of the Wii Shop Channel, the closure of Toys'r'Us, and in happier news, my wedding.
