EA Looking To Sell, Nintendo's New 5% Investor

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - May 22, 2022

We start off by wishing Pac-Man a very happy 42nd birthday, as the first arcade cabinet hit Japan on May 22, 1980. I talk about some of the memories and merchandise from the time period, and about how the Atari 2600 version is actually a technical masterpiece despite not being very true to the original arcade game. I will be at MomoCon in Atlanta on Saturday, May 27th, just hanging out. Will I see you there? I am hosting four games early on at Summer Games Done Quick 2022! EA is looking to sell, and already had one attempt by NBCUniversal. The Saudi Arabian Crown Prince has taken a 5.01% stake in Nintendo - after already investing in Capcom, Nexon, and SNK. We take a call from a new Xbox Series X owner asking which games he should play in 4K for the first time. Then we talk to Rob about other great games that are on Game Pass, especially for those new to 4K gaming.

The best selling console game in the world - EA Sports FIFA - is getting rebranded to EA Sports FC in 2023. FIFA says that the only reason the game is good is because of their name on the box, and not the software inside. A composer for Street Fighter 5 gave some insight on the future of a character, but now says that he was giving a hypothetical opinion on a livestream he promoted as "ask me about my work on Street Fighter" and, even though he said he had sources, he actually didn't have any sources. Then we talk to Rob about how the video game industry is actually quite small and networking is key.

I've been once again selected as a host for Summer Games Done Quick - this time IN PERSON!

Embracer Group is the Sweidsh version of Tencent - they have made a ton of purchases in the last few months. Square Enix claims they sold these studios so they could concentrate on other moneymaking technologies. Nvidia has been fined by the SEC for misleading investors over how many of their gaming GPUs were being sold to non-gamers. We talk about a viewer comment about Nintendo not doing a good enough job preserving third party Nintendo titles. Then we talk to Rob about Square Enix's sale and their reasoning.

Sony Ad Delivery Service, Apple Removing Old Games

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 24, 2022

Happy Anniversary to us at the Voice of Geeks Network! We soft launched as an internet radio station in April of 2012. In response to Microsoft, Sony has started looking into creating an ad delivery service for free-to-play titles. Right now, it's not as nefarious as it might wind up being. Apple has informed iOS developers that they will remove their games from the App Store if they don't update their finished games once every two years. We talk about old podcasts and the old Friday Night Gaming video podcast I did for two years, where the audio archives are still available. Then we talk to Rob about PAX East and other events finally returning.
