Steam Link Anywhere, Xbox Also Anywhere

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 17, 2019

Valve has announced Steam Link Anywhere, which allows you to play your PC games from anywhere in the world - assuming you have good enough internet both at home as well as away. Microsoft had an Inside Xbox which was a lot like a Nintendo Direct - including someone who used to be with the G4 television network Back In The Day. Microsoft announced that they will be bringing Xbox Live services to mobile games, such as achievements, leaderboards, and friends lists. Microsoft also demoed Project xCloud, their foray into streaming games over the internet rather than requiring a download. Nobody called in, so chat had me talk about the 1990 Nintendo World Championships cartridge that was in the Twitch background, as well as a beta for Halo: Reach that wasn't actually for the game (it had been out for a year) but for a new disc storage system on the Xbox 360.

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 10, 2019

I tried out Audica, the new VR Rhythm Game from Harmonix, and enjoyed it. I played it on my personal Twitch channel so check it out! Nintendo has entered Virtual Reality, sort of - they have announced a Nintendo Labo VR Kit that brings Google Cardboard tech to the Switch. Reports surface that the Day One Patch for The Division 2 on PS4 requires a 90GB download. Then we take calls about VR and your favorite time in gaming.

Xbox Architecture on Windows, Trouble Brewing At GOG

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 3, 2019

Rumors and speculation say that Microsoft might be bringing the Xbox architecture to Windows 10, which means some exciting things ahead for PC gamers. There's trouble brewing at GOG - staff was laid off, and they have discontinued their Fair Pricing Program. Then we talk about what a game store could do to attract a different audience than the juggernauts, and why the move to digital distribution is scary for those with bandwidth caps.

Nintendo Retirement, HoloLens 2 Not For You

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - February 24, 2019

Listeners wrote in about the Daemon X Machina demo on the Switch, as well as informing me that my definition of Six Degrees of Freedom (6DoF) from last week's episode was wrong! I was able to get the Quartz Regalia from Final Fantasy XV in Forza Horizon 4 this week, by doing something that I didn't think was possible. Reggie Fils-Aime is retiring from Nintendo, with Doug Bowser replacing him as the new President. I recall my one interaction with Reggie back in 2007. Microsoft announced the HoloLens 2, which improves on the original in every way - but it's not for gaming, and won't even be available for purchase to consumers. During the open segment, we primarily talk about Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst servers still being run by enthusiasts and how I found myself on one of them this week.

Tetris 99, Activision Blizzard

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - February 17, 2019

There was a surprise Nintendo Direct, and they launched the Battle Royale game that will defeat all the others - Tetris 99. Free to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers! I played it on Twitch! It turns out that Expert Plus players of Beat Saber are inhuman - so much so, that Valve had to update SteamVR to allow for faster movements than they thought humanly possible. Activision Blizzard had a confusing week - announcing record profits while laying off 8% of their workforce at the exact same time. We examine some of the reasons that might have happened. Then we take calls about Tetris 99, TetriNET, Pac Man Vs, and board games like Pandemic and Codenames.
