SIEGE 2017 Recap, Microsoft Buys AltspaceVR

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - October 8, 2017

I attended the Southern Interactive Entertainment and Game Expo, tried some locally produced indie games like Twincop and SiNKR, and had some interesting conversations about why you must be negative to be entertaining while streaming or doing podcasts. Microsoft has been revealed to be the benefactor for AltspaceVR keeping it in business. Then we take calls about Amazon Prime not taking care of SNES Classic preorders.

SNES Classic Impressions, Wii Shop Channel Closing

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - October 1, 2017

I was able to get a SNES Classic - some scalpers in my line were worried about the seemingly overwhelming supply at my location. Golf Story on the Switch is surprisingly good, but I've only played it for an hour or so. The Metronomicon, a game I covered on the VOG Network YouTube channel, had a Steam Sale and I picked it up. Pinball FX3 is out, but not all tables from previous versions were carried over - unfortunately Pinball FX2 was delisted on Steam at the same time, so you can no longer get that version. Nintendo is closing the Wii Shop Channel, and you have until March 25, 2018 to buy points that you can use to make purchases until 2019. Then we take calls about SNES Classic vs. RetroPie, and why people have such a strong reaction to things that are in VR vs. not in VR.

Steam User Review Graphs, PUBG vs. Fortnite

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 24, 2017

Flappy Bird is gone, but is Flappy VOG still playable? Turns out, mostly...no. I've played more of Miitopia on the 3DS and it really is a decent RPG-Lite. Don't expect anything too deep but still fun to play while trying to get to sleep. Steam has added graphs to user reviews to show when something is being review bombed, giving the consumer more accurate information about a title. Playerunknown's Battlegrounds developer Bluehole is objecting to Epic Games' similar title Fortnite: Battle Royale, but not for the gameplay itself. Then we take calls about Zone of the Enders 2.

Miiverse Preservation Project, Classic Edition Supply

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 17, 2017

While I don't really talk about the Nintendo Direct, I do talk a little bit about the Project Octopath Traveler demo on the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo may be shutting down their social network, but a former listener is hoping to archive all of Miiverse before it goes away. Nintendo also claims to be putting out more units of the SNES Classic as well as bringing back the NES Classic in 2018. Then we take calls about the Dragon Ball FighterZ beta, Rigs, and Fantasy Strike.

Dragon Con 2017 Wrapup, Journalists Bad At Games

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 10, 2017

I'm back from Dragon Con and I'm inspired and looking forward to the year ahead. We have a followup from a previous call about if Nintendo has any competition this holiday season, and a commenter says that Sony is a worthy challenger. At Dragon Con, I sat in on a panel by Al Lowe, creator of Leisure Suit Larry, and he talked about his time at Sierra On-Line before the company was stolen from Ken Williams. I discuss that I might want to do more Twitch streaming and be more of a positive influence, but that leads into how Dean Takahashi, someone who has been covering the video game industry for 25 years and is respected by many (including myself), was drug through the mud for uploading a humorous video of him not doing too well at a difficult indie game. Then we take calls about video game soundtracks and reviews.
