Epic Store Exclusives, Game Accessibility Debate

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - April 7, 2019

We had a viewer comment on which segment of the population would be most upset about Google Stadia, and it isn't those with bandwidth caps. This does segway into a history lesson about the fastest internet in America that was driven by socialism (and subsequently limited before it could reach out further.) Borderlands 3 has been announced to be an Epic Games Store exclusive, and people just aren't buying it. A debate around accessibility has been launched around Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, but I don't think it should be just an "easy mode" even though I only play easy games. Then we take calls about easy mode in games and upcoming video game movies.

Sony State of Play, Apple Arcade

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 31, 2019

April Fools Day was the day after we recorded this, so the prerequisite reminder of "don't believe anything" rings true. Valve teased a new VR HMD called the Valve Index. Sony did their Nintendo Direct called State of Play, and talked a lot about PlayStation VR titles that are coming very soon. At PAX East, Gearbox Software brought 4K 60FPS video but unfortunately the PAX equipment couldn't play it without stuttering... Apple announced Apple Arcade, a new gaming subscription service for iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV. Then we take calls about the original Warcraft on GOG, and the new indie game The World Next Door, now available on PC and Switch.

Oculus Rift S, Google Stadia

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - March 24, 2019

Esports history has been made - Overwatch League aired LIVE on network broadcast television in the US for the first time. But, there was one thing that happened that might turn off mainstream audiences. Sony is discontinuing the practice of selling digital game codes in retail stores, forcing people to buy directly on PSN Store. Oculus has announced the Rift S, an upgraded version of the Rift PC headset that features inside out tracking. Google has announced Stadia, a game streaming platform that is going to be the future of gaming, whether we want it to be or not. Then we take calls on esports, VR, and game streaming.

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.

Audica Impressions, Nintendo Labo VR Kit

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.
