The long running live internet radio show about video games is edited down for your podcast consumption.
The two year run of this unique video show has audio-only podcasts available for you to relive the memories.
LIGHTLY EDITED: This is a previously unreleased episode of The Bobby Blackwolf Show, and is released with minimal editing (removing the music break.) Please keep this in mind when you hear long awkward pauses that are typically edited out of the podcast. In this episode, we talk about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, how it set records on Steam, and how Steam's forums were hacked.
We start off by giving our review of Two Worlds II for the Xbox 360. Find out if it makes up for the first game as well as why it was one of the most difficult titles for Bobby to review. Sony announced the successor to the PSP - working title "NGP" (Next Generation Portable) - this week in Japan. Mainstream media is bashing Microsoft for banning an 11 year old autistic child from Xbox Live for cheating, because the mother insists he's just "that good" at games. Find out the truth. Then we take calls about the NGP, both in Next Generation Portable form as well as Neo Geo Pocket form.
Nintendo really needs to send Sony a thank you card. For the past few weeks, I, any many others in the independent gaming media, have been covering the recent downtime of the PlayStation Network. Meanwhile, folks at the Free Software Foundation have uncovered some possibly scary terms that you must agree to in order for your Nintendo 3DS to be fully functional.
On the cusp of his 15th straight E3, Bobby Blackwolf was rejected for not meeting the new requirements for bloggers, even though he is a podcaster. However, he feels that the new rules are okay...Mostly. In this editorial, he describes why GDC went the same route and survived, what E3 exhibitors are thinking, where E3 can improve their quality control standards, and what an independent journalist can do if they get rejected from covering the most important event in the video game industry.
The first item we talk about probably won't help you listening on the podcast, but you could have gotten Midnight Club 2 on PC for free by joining the official Rockstar Group on Steam. But, you can join the VOG Network group on Steam even after May 15th! Minecraft 360 has broken sales records on Xbox Live Arcade, but announcing that has shown there might have been some preferential treatment. We also talk a little bit about the game (impressions from the demo) and how it is different from the PC version. If you want to buy games on Steam, but don't want to use your credit or debit card, you now have an alternative...And neither side is too happy about it. The Xbox 360 is rumored to get Internet Explorer 9 with Kinect support. Information about the real money auction house in Diablo 3 has been released...And we talk about how much money Blizzard will take in from each successful sale. We don't take many calls because we were recording on Mother's Day, but one person called in just to call, so we talked about The Pirate Bay telling Anonymous to stop censoring other people.
