Canadian Lawyers v. Fortnite, Intellivision Amico Commandments

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - October 6, 2019

This coming weekend, I will be at SIEGE at Kennesaw State University outside of Atlanta, for the Southeastern US's version of the Game Developer Conference. Lawyers in Canada are attempting to file a class action lawsuit against Fortnite for being so addictive, parents can't control their kids' screen time. A patch is out for Super Mario Maker 2 that finally gives you the ability to play online with friends, but it also has LAN Play? Intellivision released their 10 Commandments of Game Design for Amico games, which has some people cheering and some people booing. Then we take calls about Star Wars Galaxies and the Intellivision Amico.

Mario Kart Tour Lootboxes, Tilt Five Augmented Reality

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 29, 2019

Mario Kart Tour is now out on mobile - and it is definitely a lootbox and microtransaction game, complete with very low odds. The Untitled Goose Game is great - I played it on Twitch and had a honkin good time. A new Kickstarter has launched that has real promise in the Augmented Reality space - Tilt Five - and it's aimed at board games. At Oculus Connect 6, we didn't hear much about the Rift line, except to say that the Oculus Quest will soon be able to play all Rift games. Is this the end of Oculus's investment in the Rift line? Then we take calls about the Sony State of Play and why Sony would cover Call of Duty so much.

SEGA Genesis Mini, E3 2020's Proposed Changes

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 22, 2019

If you recently got a Nintendo Switch Lite to augment your existing Nintendo Switch, there's something you'll need to do to allow your Lite to play your digital games while not connected to the internet. The SEGA Genesis Mini is out - and it's a really well made trip down memory lane! A leaked presentation has shown that the ESA intends to change E3 2020 from an industry trade show to an influencer-infused festival. Then we take calls about The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and it's framerate issues.

Ring Fit Adventure, UK House of Commons Looting Lootboxes

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 15, 2019

At Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix showed that Final Fantasy VII Remake will have a "Classic Mode" that makes the game totally turn based once again, giving an option to those who don't necessarily want the new action elements to the combat. Death Stranding was also shown, and it is a showcase of what Hideo Kojima will do when there's nobody to tell him "no." Nintendo's new experience is Ring Fit Adventure, a game where Wii Fit meets Final Fantasy - a fitness game with a story. The Discord Nitro subscription service is removing their game rental service because nobody actually used it. A UK House of Commons committee has recommended banning video game lootboxes because they are gambling - and not everyone in our chat room agrees. Then we take calls about if the industry needs to regulate lootboxes before the government does.

Dragon Con 2019 Recap, Nintendo's New Experience

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 8, 2019

We recap Dragon Con 2019 with what panels I did, and talking about the growing video game scene at the show on the other side of the country from PAX. Nintendo finally released SNES games on the Nintendo Switch Online service, but then announced that they were discontinuing regular updates, which means we'll get less new games less often. They also teased a new experience with a "ring" controller that we'll talk about more on the next episode. Death Stranding is going to have a Bobby Blackwolf Mode, or rather a "Very Easy Mode" so people who like movies can experience the story. Then we talk about what DLC character we would love to see added to Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and more about Dragon Con and how Rob and I saved a panel titled "Battle Royale 101" despite not being true experts on the genre.
