Beat Games to Facebook, Not Hating The VGA's

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - December 1, 2019

We start off with some viewer comments about Google Stadia, Half-Life: Alyx and VR, and game streaming in general. The Steam Controller is dead. Long live the Steam Controller. Facebook has purchased Beat Games, the studio that brought you Beat Saber, and while it doesn't mean that Beat Saber will be Oculus exclusive, it might mean that modding will be clamped down and that their next game will be an Oculus exclusive. The Game Awards are coming up, and while it's trendy to hate on them and Geoff Keighley, I won't be doing that. Then we take calls about the Game Awards and whether Death Stranding should be a part of the awards considering that Geoff was in the game and Hideo Kojima is on the board of The Game Awards.

Google Stadia Impressions, Half-Life: Alyx Confirmed

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - November 24, 2019

We open with a tribute to one of the main creators of EverQuest, Brad McQuaid, who passed away at the age of 51. I got my Google Stadia Founders Edition, and the technology works and uses a lot of data, but the service isn't there yet. Like the old AT&T You Will ads predicted, game streaming WILL be how we play games in the future, but the company to bring it to us will NOT be Google. Valve announced Half-Life: Alyx, a new AAA VR game coming out in March of 2020. A lot of people are asking why Alyx doesn't have arms and why that breaks immersion, but I present the case that not having arms is better than having arms that aren't tracked (and are therefore not the same as the actual position of your arms.) Then we take a call about how both VR and game streaming can't be the future.

Commodore 64 Virtual Reality, Dreamhack Atlanta Recap

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - November 17, 2019

I went to Dreamhack Atlanta on Saturday and basked in the glow of the bright stages of esports, even though it's not really a part of gaming I'm into...I still had a great time, though. On Sunday, I went to a retro exhibit at the Computer Museum of America in Roswell, GA, and got to try VR64 - a WORKING Virtual Reality headset for the Commodore 64! Google Stadia is launching this week without some advertised features...and without some founders not getting their hardware on time. Meanwhile, Microsoft announced that the Project xCloud Preview is working with 50 games. Then we take calls about Google Stadia and Rob Roberts' trip to New York City.

Content Creator's Right To Play Video Games?

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - November 10, 2019

I'm going to be at Dreamhack Atlanta on Saturday - come say hi if you see me wandering around! A bunch of new games came out that people are playing or watching, including Terry Bogard in Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Norman Reedus with a Creepy Fetus in Death Stranding. Epic Games has permanently banned a popular YouTube Content Creator from Fortnite for using an aimbot on his channel. Other streamers say that the ban is too harsh for a content creator, but is just fine for regular people. Is the 17-year old YouTuber's career ruined? In other YouTube news, many fans of another popular content creator got completely banned from Google for playing along with an emoji game in a livestream chat. Banned from GOOGLE, not just YouTube.

EA Returning To Steam And Maybe The College Gridiron?

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - November 3, 2019

We continue our conversation from the podcast comments about Google Stadia and discuss some things that happened (or didn't happen) at BlizzCon. The NCAA has announced that they will look into allowing student athletes to profit off of their Name, Image, and Likeness, which opens the door for the EA Sports NCAA Football series to make a grand return after being shut down in 2014. EA will be selling games on Steam for the first time since 2011, with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order being the first game to be on both Steam and Origin. Then we take calls about the entire NCAA suite of games from the previous generation.
