Lucasfilm Games Re-emerges, Sony's CES Trailer Slip-Up

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - January 17, 2021

I got the GoXLR Mixer, a Windows-based audio mixer geared towards streamers, which does change the audio sound of the podcast slightly and provides more "toys" that I will try to stay away from. We take some viewer comments about the recent death of Adobe Flash as well as a list of anticipated games for 2021. Lucasfilm Games has re-emerged and is now the caretaker of Lucas properties - and also signaled the end of EA's exclusive license over Star Wars, with Ubisoft announcing a new Star Wars game. Also announced was a new Indiana Jones game being made by MachineGames and Bethesda. A common sentiment over this from consumers was "nobody asked for this" which is never something that should be asked in regards of creative media. The Consumer Electronics Show was virtual this year, and even though there usually aren't software announcements there, Sony did accidentally leak third party release dates in their eventually pulled trailer. Then we talk to OLR about some of the great joys we've had meeting certain gaming luminaries during our years on the air.

#AGDQ2021 Hosting Recap: DMC3, Yoshi's Island, Yakuza 6 (RUGBY BABY)

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - January 10, 2021

Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online concluded after raising $2.7 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. As a host/donation reader, I was fully immersed in the GDQ spirit throughout the week and gained some insight into the choices made by the event organizers. I discuss why incentives are sometimes set high (and then pushed), which donation comments I chose to read, why some donation comments never got to me, and then I go through both of my shifts to discuss how tone changed and what I was attempting to invoke when I was on the microphone. On Wednesday night, during the push for the Zelda: Wand of Gamelon All Cutscene bonus game, I started with Devil May Cry 3 by Waifu. This had hilarious commentary with fast action, high paced gameplay. Zingers flew freely. Immediately after that, the tone shifted to a more relaxing tone with the impressive Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island 100% by Calco. Both the runner and commentator Niakky have English as a Second Language and were nervous about having to perform in English. Then, on Friday, it was all about Yakuza 6: The Song of Life by Froob. The main donation incentive here was a Yakuza cutscene called "Rugby Baby." I had not seen the cutscene ahead of time, which influenced how we (Froob and myself) chose to present it to the audience. Also: I do explain where "SpikeVegeta And Crew" came from, and how it was trying to cover myself and not create a bigger flub.

Adobe Flash Going Offline, Anticipated Games of 2021

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - January 3, 2021

We visit some comments regarding previous episodes, including some more reminiscing on the Commodore 64 and how we might have formerly on the wrong side of the law but now on the right one. Adobe has finally killed off the Flash platform, taking the memes of the early 2000's offline forever, unless you use an emulator. We ask the chat (and you) what games are you anticipating in 2021? Then we talk to OLR about the death of Adobe Flash and how it affects our day jobs.

Arcade1up OutRun Rad Rally Upgrade Doesn't Go Smoothly

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - December 27, 2020

Reminder: I'm hosting on Wednesday and Friday nights at Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online! Check the schedule for the exact times. Arcade1up released a firmware update for the OutRun cabinet that added Rad Rally to the list of games - but it doesn't go as smoothly as expected. (Check out the video version of this segment on the VOG Network YouTube channel!) Bobby gives his favorite Games of the Year, some you expect and some you might not expect. Then we talk to OLR about Nintendo possibly still using Amiibos and the upcoming AGDQ.

Cyberpunk 2077 Impressions and Unintentional Xbox Exclusivity

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - December 20, 2020

Reminder: I'm going to be hosting at Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online on Wednesday and Friday evening the first week of January! Come participate in a wonderful event for charity. Cyberpunk 2077 has been pulled from the PlayStation Network Store and are offering full refunds after CD Projekt Red told customers to seek a refund from Sony if they didn't like the performance on last-gen hardware. Even though it's now an Xbox/PC Exclusive, Microsoft is also offering full refunds, but did not pull the game from their digital storefront. If you're wondering how this passed certification - it's because console certification isn't QA, it just makes sure that the game doesn't destroy the console. I have played the first eight hours on an Xbox Series X, and there's some glimpses of greatness in there. Then we take a call about how GameSpot gave Half-Life: Alyx their Game Of The Year award and how it seems like a milestone for VR gaming.
