The Billy Mitchell Panel at SFGE, Microsoft at E3

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - June 10, 2018

The Southern Fried Gaming Expo was this weekend, and I hosted a newsworthy panel with the former King of Kong, Billy Mitchell. It was later written about in Variety, but the first time I talked about how my moderating time went was on this show from the night after it happened. Microsoft's press conference had already happened when we recorded, so I talked about what they showed, but mostly what they revealed afterwards about Forza Horizon 4.

Just Shapes & Beats Impressions, Intellivision Returns

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - June 3, 2018

The Southern Fried Gaming Expo is THIS WEEKEND and I'm hosting the "Road To Redemption" panel with Billy Mitchell and Walter Day, and kind of freaking out over what to ask. Just Shapes & Beats has finally come out on Steam and the Nintendo Switch, and it's a really fun frustrating game you can dance to. I tried the Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner PSVR demo for a listener, and I can't really say I recommend it as a VR experience. Video Games Live founder Tommy Tallarico has taken over Intellivision, and will be launching a new console aimed at families (rather than hardcore gamers) sometime in the next few years. At the end of the show, I'm getting more advice about my showdown with the former King of Kong.

Steam Link App on Android, but not iPhone

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - May 27, 2018

VOG is sponsoring the Southern Fried Gaming Expo on June 8-10, and I will be moderating a panel with Billy Mitchell and Walter Day! Mike Fahey from Kotaku has been in the hospital for several months. He should be returning to us soon, though. Valve has released a Steam Link app for smartphones, which allow you to play games from your PC on your Android phone. Apple, unfortunately, has rejected the iPhone app due to "business conflicts with app guidelines." Then we take calls about getting into VR.

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.
