Half-Life: Alyx Impressions, Epic Games Publishing Announced

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 29, 2020

We have some followup conversations regarding Animal Crossing: New Horizons and doing curbside pickup at Best Buy. The sports world is turning to esports, with the eNascar iRacing Pro Invitational pulling in 900,000 viewers in the US. Summer Games Done Quick has been postponed from June to August. Half-Life: Alyx is now out for VR devices, and it's the AAA-quality VR game you've been looking for - even if I won't play it much. Epic Games has announced that they're getting into the game publishing business with really good terms for developers. Then we talk to Rob from OLR about Animal Crossing.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Impressions, New Console Reveals

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 22, 2020

The Georgia Livestreaming Network has launched as a promotional network for Georgia based streamers and podcasters, of which this show is one of them. Because of everything going on, esports aired on cable TV and nobody complained - congrats to iRacing and the eNASCAR sprint cup on FS1! Animal Crossing: New Horizons is now out on Switch, and I am a cheating cheater who cheats. Gamestop fought the law, and the law won in the end, as Gamestop was forced to close its doors as it is not an "essential business." A new trailer for the Intellivision Amico was released with three minutes of gameplay. This would have been the week of Game Developers Conference, so more details on the Xbox Series X were released. Also, Sony did a deep dive on the PlayStation 5 architecture that was great for developers but not so much for consumers. Then we talk to OLR about Animal Crossing with some advice on what happens in the future.

LEGO Super Mario, Horizon: Zero Dawn PC Port

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 15, 2020

Apologies for this episode being delayed getting on the podcast feed - it's been a rough week. The world is going through a lot right now - and unfortunately this podcast isn't a complete escape. We do discuss it and how it relates to gaming. We'll be discussing it again. Unfortunately it's impossible to just "ignore" it and give an hour of complete respite. I was a panelist on the inaugural panel of the Georgia Livestreaming Network - a Georgia based group of streamers promoting each other and games made in Georgia. I completed my Summer Games Done Quick hosting audition! I talk about the process without giving specifics. It's a really interesting process that is as nervewracking as it is fun. LEGO has announced a Super Mario playset that is actually an interactive game, and not just building castles. Horizon: Zero Dawn is coming to the PC four years after its console launch, and PlayStation fanboys believe this is the death of the brand. Then we talk to OLR about Star Trek: The Cruise.

Indie Dev Gives Reasoning For Leaving NVIDIA GeForce NOW

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 8, 2020

In a show that was blissfully recorded in a time before all mass gatherings were cancelled for several months, we talk a lot about the impact of COVID-19 on gaming and sporting events, not realizing that just about everything would be canceled mid-week. Keep that in mind when listening! At the time of recording, E3 was still moving ahead with their June show. (Spoiler alert: this changed several days later!) However, they were working without one of their main partners for the rebrand of the show. The indie game The Long Dark was pulled from NVIDIA GeForce NOW, and the developer gave some insight as to why, which calls into question the role virtual machines play in gaming. Then we talk about the Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo, and what our favorite PS2 game and first DVD played on the PS2 were. Wash your hands.

GDC Postponed Due To COVID-19 Cancellations

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 1, 2020

I will be at the Georgia Game Developers Association meeting on Tuesday, March 10th, to talk about how game developers can better use livestreaming and podcasts to build their brand, and I talk a little bit about the type of message I want to send regarding when to engage with people like me. After spending most of the last episode admonishing companies for abandoning conferences due to COVID-19 fears, the Game Developer Conference went ahead and just postponed their show, leaving a lot of people in a lurch with non-refundable plane tickets and hotel expenses. At PAX East, which still went on just fine, Harmonix announced the video game version of Dropmix - Fuser. The creator of the Konami code passed away this week. We thank him for enriching our lives with extra lives. Since nobody was calling in, I ask people why I was sent a peanut butter can admonishing my (correct) pronunciation of "GIF" and I explain why it's pronounced the same way as the peanut butter brand and why we don't pronounce any other acronym based on the words it represents.
