TUNIC Soundtrack DMCA'd, Unity's Per-Install Pricing Announcement

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 17, 2023

I'm going to be at Twitchcon as one of the seven hosts for Games Done Quick Express! My hosting shifts will be announced on the October 1st show. The TUNIC soundtrack had been taken offline by a fraudulent DMCA claim - and initially the distributor sided with the fraudster. Unity announced a new fee for game developers that charged per install, and just about the entire game industry unified against them. (Since this recording, Unity has walked back some of the changes, but the damage may already be done.) Then we talk to Rob about F-Zero 99.

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - August 20, 2023

I'm going to be at Dragon Con 2023! I'm moderating and appearing on panels in the Digital Media, Video Game, and Independent Film tracks. There was no live show on August 26th, so you haven't missed anything... Microsoft is shutting down the Xbox 360 Marketplace on July 29, 2024, so get your final purchases in now. In another edition of "game developers being sneaky" - there's a real technical reason for the Blood Moon in Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and it has everything to do with the capabilities of the Nintendo Switch. Then we talk about the Tetris movie on Apple TV+ and what other video game stories we'd like to see made into dramatic movies.

Atari 2600 LEGO Build, Supreme Court on Epic v. Apple

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - August 13, 2023

I talk about my tentative Dragon Con schedule - where I am on six panels across three tracks, including one with a board gaming luminary! I finally built the Atari 2600 LEGO set, and show off the different parts and how they encapsulate the real thing. People think the Supreme Court ruled on the Epic v. Apple case, but they really didn't...Not yet. Then we talk to Rob about Southern-Fried Gaming Expo and the other content VOG has been putting out lately.

PS5 UI Gets New Features, Kickstarter Requires AI Disclosure

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - August 6, 2023

The PS5 is getting new features for accessibility as well as for atmospheric audio for people with home theater systems in an upcoming update. Microsoft is embracing Right-To-Repair by selling repair kits for Xbox controllers. Kickstarter is now requiring that project disclose how they will be using AI to create their projects. This led into a much longer discussion about AI, considering I am about to be on some panels at Dragon Con about AI and I am currently pessimistic on how the tools will be used as they are developed further.
