#GenCon Recap, Loot Box Disclosures

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - August 11, 2019

I went to my first Gen Con, which is billed as The Best Four Days in Gaming, and I gotta say...They're not exactly wrong, as long as you're into board, card, and tabletop games. I'm going to be on or moderating seven different panels at Dragon Con, including a big one with some voiceover artists you've definitely heard. Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft have all stated that they will soon require disclosures of odds on all Loot Boxes coming to their consoles. A survey of VR developers has found that there are more projects in development for the Oculus Rift than for the HTC Vive for the first time. Then we talk to OLR about Dragon Con and the Sheraton hotel closure.

Classic Doom Release, Joy Con Fixes

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 28, 2019

I'm going to be going to my first Gen Con next weekend! I'll be there to play some board games and hopefully steer clear of any high score drama. A Bethesda.net login is NOT required to listen to this podcast, but it IS required to play some classic Doom remasters on the Nintendo Switch. Many memes were made, including one from yours truly. Nintendo has instructed its repair center to fix drifting Joy Cons free of charge to hopefully get rid of a class action lawsuit. Then we take calls about board games and conventions.

Tetris Effect PC, Google Stadia as Netflix?

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 21, 2019

A viewer comment discusses possibly using the Valve Index controllers to teach American Sign Language, but it might not actually be the best idea YET. The PlayStation Classic finally dropped to $20, so now I have one. I also ordered the Turbografx-16 Mini for five times the price. Tetris Effect is launching on PC this week, but exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Plot twist: you still need Steam to run it in VR. A Reddit AMA revealed that Google Stadia is NOT intended to be a Netflix for Games, but rather following the Games with Gold and PlayStation Plus model. Then we take calls about Real VR Fishing, Bigscreen Beta, and the Intellivision Amico.

#SFGE2019 Recap, Nintendo Switch Lite

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 14, 2019

I attended the Southern Fried Gaming Expo in Atlanta, and played a whole lot of pinball - including a privately-created one-of-a-kind Spaceballs table! I also spoke on several panels. Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch Lite, and there's a very specific audience it's intended for. Does this mean that developers will stop supporting features not in the Lite version? Then we talk to OLR about where to start in collecting Pinball tables.

Valve Index and Knuckles Controllers Impressions

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 7, 2019

I will be at the Southern Fried Gaming Expo this weekend and appearing on three panels on Saturday! I created some Super Mario Maker 2 levels for you to check out: Flappin Mario (R0T-V21-R5G) and Relaxing Long Jumps (1WD-J94-GLG) The Epic Games Store will be covering refunds for crowdfunded projects that used to promise Steam rewards. I got my Valve Index VR headset with the new Knuckles Controllers, and I explain why it's now my go to headset for VR. Then we talk to OLR about Super Mario Maker 2 and Weird Al.
