Microsoft Closes Studios Making Hit Games, Says It Needs More Hit Games

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - May 12, 2024

The requirement for Helldivers 2 requiring PC players to link a PlayStation Network account has been reversed - for now. The 2024 World Video Game Hall of Fame inductees have been announced! Microsoft closes four studios from the Bethesda/ZeniMax side of the house, including ones that released smaller scale award winning games. They say this is because they can't actually afford to run all of the studios it bought. Xbox says that they need more smaller scale award winning games coming out of their studios. There is a new John Wick pinball machine coming out - look for it in a local barcade (if you have any) in the next few months! Then we talk to Rob about the fact that it's my birthday and how I want to retire the running joke of me being only 29 years old.

Dave and Busters Introduces New Feature, Helldivers 2 Introduces PSN

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - May 5, 2024

We start off with some clarification from a listener about using the Meta Quest 3 wirelessly with Virtual Desktop to play PCVR games. Dave & Busters is going to be introducing a new feature that may or may not be legal in all states. Helldivers 2 was supposed to launch on PC with a requirement to link your PlayStation Network account, but was put on hold - until this weekend. (This decision was reversed three hours after this episode was recorded.) There was review bombing and even the game being pulled in 177 countries. Then we talked to Rob about Pikmin Bloom, of all things.

Eiyuden Chronicles Early Impressions, Meta Quest Partners With Microsoft

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 28, 2024

After the first six hours of Eiyuden Chronicles: Hundred Heroes, there are some early impressions...And why I may not continue. Meta Quest has once again partnered with Microsoft and the Xbox brand, but it does not mean that VR is coming to the Xbox console. Valve has closed a refund loophole with regards to games in Advanced Access. Then we talk to Rob about Eiyuden Chronicles and how it is very much an old school JRPG, for both better AND worse.

Game Boy Turns 35, Target Removing Some Physical Media

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 21, 2024

The Game Boy has turned 35 years old in Japan! I try my old Game Boy, as well as discuss how my entire Game Boy library was stolen by a classmate and we never caught him or got any of it back. (And also nobody believed me.) We talk about a viewer comment about having high fidelity VR in an untethered headset - as long as you have high quality equipment. Target is scaling back how much physical media it carries in stores - but it's not eliminating them entirely yet. Arcade1up has partnered with TaskRabbit to build your Arcade1up cabinets for you. Anyone who has tried to install a monitor in an Arcade1up cabinet understands why this is a good thing. Then we talk to Rob about our memories of the Game Boy.

Studio Closes Due To Leaks, Phyiscal Game Won't Install Without Online Connection

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 14, 2024

Indie gaming studio Possibility Space has closed its doors, claiming it's because of questions from a journalist for an article that hasn't even been published yet. Star Wars: Outlaws will require an online internet connection to install the physical disc - which makes the game preservation aspect of physical media useless. We're still raising money for Make-A-Wish Georgia - we've smashed the original goal, so we just made the goal bigger. Then we talk to Orange Lounge Radio about their historic 1000th episode!
