The Bobby Blackwolf Show Episode 349: August 12, 2012
Steam App Store, EA and Nintendo Falling Out?
- We remember Paul Steed, the outspoken animator that was a powerful force in the gaming industry, who passed away suddenly this week.
- Zynga offered Polytron their services to convert FEZ to mobile devices, which was refused...Could a Zynga clone be far off?
- Double Fine says that they are looking to do more crowdfunding projects rather than the traditional work-for-hire model.
- Valve announced that Creativity and Productivity apps are coming to Steam in September...Is this a preemptive blow to the Windows 8 App Store?
- A rumor on an internet message board (so it must be true!) paints an interesting picture of why EA isn't so big on the Wii-U's online capabilities anymore...And why Ubisoft suddenly is.
- Then we take calls about game developers creating their own PR disasters, about the Wii-U pricing, and about preordering it. The call with OLR devolves into talking about how Atlanta gets credited with the worst everything, even though Bobby loved attending the 1996 Summer Olympics.
