Unreal Engine Royalty Changes, More Convention Cancellations

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - May 17, 2020

The Southern-Fried Gaming Expo has been canceled for 2020 voluntarily, which means there is no Force Majeure to protect them financially. Consider buying some merch to help them afford 2021. The Elder Scrolls: Blades is out on Nintendo Switch and I'm having some funkiness with the graphics. The TurboGrafx-16 Mini is finally coming to North America two months after it was advertised as "now available." The Unreal Engine is now royalty free to developers for the first $1 million in gross revenue. This led to discussions about the Unreal Engine 5 tech demo shown this week, who the audience was supposed to be (and who saw it instead), then to The Elder Scrolls: Blades and Twitch Watch Parties.

Animal Crossing Burnout, Inside Xbox "Gameplay"

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - May 10, 2020

We open with some viewer comments on the leaks of The Last Of Us Part 2 and on EVO possibly doing online fighting tournaments. I've gotten burned out on Animal Crossing: New Horizons as the daily grind is now just a grind. The City of Atlanta has passed an ordinance to continue denying event permits within the city which cancels the Dragon Con parade, but it is not "Force Majeure" enough to cancel the entire convention. Microsoft's Inside Xbox touted "gameplay reveals" of third party Xbox Series X titles, but had very little human-controlled gameplay. Then we talk to OLR about how I finished Final Fantasy VII Remake and we're now ready to do a spoiler cast.

NCAA Football's 2021 Possibility, The Last Of Us Part II Leak's Origins

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - May 3, 2020

We start off by following up on previous conversations regarding September events and the linearity of Final Fantasy games. The NCAA will soon allow student athletes to profit off of their Name, Image, and Likeness, but that doesn't mean that the NCAA Football video games are immediately coming back. The Last of Us Part II was leaked heavily but it didn't come from Naughty Dog or Sony. Then we take calls about EVO going online and the beauty of Xbox Game Pass.

Why Dragon Con And PAX Are Still On, TurboGrafx-16 Mini "Now Available"

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 26, 2020

The TurboGrafx-16 Mini is "now available" in the US, however you can't actually order one, and those who already did won't see theirs shipped until 2021...Unless you order from Japan. Dragon Con and PAX both announced that their events on Labor Day weekend are proceeding as planned. I explain why that's their only option right now due to how event insurance and venue contracts are structured with respect to pandemics, as well as when and how they can safely cancel. 160,000 Nintendo Network ID's have been leaked, causing Nintendo to shut off the old login service and force everyone to a Nintendo Account, which now has two-factor authentication. Then we take calls about Final Fantasy VII Remake along with a spoiler-free tip on a part of the game that crashes and how it is very linear and corridor-heavy like Final Fantasy XIII.

Nintendo Switch Resellers, JRPG Reimaginings

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 19, 2020

I was on the VR365 show talking about the beginning of consumer VR in 2016 on this four year anniversary of that event. Corona Relief Done Quick, an online-only speedrunning marathon, was this weekend raising money for Direct Relief. Viewer comments from previous episodes include VR talk as well as esports on TV talk. I've played both Persona 5 Royal and Final Fantasy VII Remake, two reimaginings of great JRPG's. Microsoft and Nvidia have put super duper graphics in Minecraft With RTX, now in beta for Nvidia RTX cards. The Nintendo Switch shortage is due to resellers using bots to buy all the stock so they can flip it on eBay. Then we take calls about PC racing wheels and if Animal Crossing: New Horizons is dumb and for babies.
