VRChat Vs. Community, Meta Quest 2 Vs. Your Wallet

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - August 7, 2022

VRChat has pushed a security update that adds the Easy Anti-Cheat tool and bans all mods, many of which were used by people to make VRChat more accessible to them. Meta has raised the price of the Quest 2 by $100. A N*T seller was suspended from the Gamestop marketplace because he stole open source games and sold them for thousands of dollars without licensing them. Arcade1up has announced a Marvel vs. Capcom 2 cabinet at EVO. Then we talk a little bit about Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's Wave 2 courses and Arcade1up cabinets. At the end, there is a very personal message. Thank you for being part of this for me. Love you, Mom.

17 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! FH5: Hot Wheels, Stray, and Live A Live Impressions

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 24, 2022

It's literally the 17th Anniversary of this podcast - Episode 1 aired live on July 24, 2005 using Shoutcast Internet Radio and an IRC chat room, and has evolved into a Twitch video show 816 episodes later. Thank you for being a part of it! One of the two panels I hosted at the Southern-Fried Gaming Expo is now on YouTube - Explaining Speedrunning With Silent Hill 4: The Room Featuring AnEternalEnigma! There were three games that came out this week that I wanted to talk about: The Forza Horizon 5: Hot Wheels expansion came out, and it's as fun as you'd expect - even more fun than the actual Hot Wheels game! Indie darling Stray is out, and while it had the makings of a personal GOTY, it fell a little bit short for me. And then Live A Live, the 2D-HD remake of a 1994 SNES classic that never made it out of Japan, is actually a really good time. LEGO is releasing an Atari 2600 next month, and I might need it. Then we talk to OLR about yet another No Man's Sky update.

#SFGE2022 Wrapup, Unity Merging With Adware Provider

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 17, 2022

I spent the weekend at the Southern Fried Gaming Expo playing arcades and pinball games! I also hosted two panels, one of which about speedrunning will be hitting YouTube soon. Unity has merged with ironSource, a known adware provider. They are doing this because they need to be able to generate revenue so their investors will stop suing them. Then we have open discussion about E3 being taken over by ReedPOP, and the current state of the G4 TV network compared to when I was involved with it. PROGRAMMING NOTE: DURING THIS EPISODE I REFER TO TAKING A WEEK OFF. PLANS HAVE CHANGED. Due to medical conditions and quarantine, we have opted to move our trip to the following weekend, so there WILL be a live show on July 24th on the 17th anniversary of this podcast, and there will NOT be a live show on July 31st.

Faked Run On SGDQ, Meta VR To Remove Facebook Requirement

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 10, 2022

I'm going to be at Southern Fried Gaming Expo next weekend and I am hosting two panels/events on Saturday evening! A runner faked a portion of their remote speedrun on SGDQ last week, and I'm not surprised at who did it. It looked like the trademark for the Intellivision Amico was abandoned, but it turns out it wasn't - doesn't give us any hope for a release, though. Meta announced that Facebook will not be required to use a Quest VR headset starting next month. Then we talk to Rob a little bit about my past in music writing (which will be elaborated on in a future episode) as well as thoughts on E3 2023 being run by ReedPOP.

Reflecting on #SGDQ2022 - Hosting An In-Person GDQ For The First Time

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 3, 2022

I attended my first in person speedrunning marathon - Summer Games Done Quick 2022 - where over $3 million was raised for Doctors Without Borders. I talk about what it's like to attend the week long event, more than what you see on the stream. I go through my four runs that I hosted, and what worked well with them. Then we talk to Rob about other runs at GDQ as well as what news we might have missed while out.
