Elgato Facecam Impressions, Olympics Opening Ceremony

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 25, 2021

I was on the Dragon Con Digital Media Track Creator Spotlight last week! You can check it out now on YouTube. I got the Elgato Facecam and, while there are some hiccups with it being the first run of a technology product, it does the job it advertises well. The Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony used video game music for the Parade of Nations - but why were some prominent games not used? The State of California has filed a lawsuit against Activision Blizzard for gender discrimination among other terrible things. Then we talk to OLR about Dragon Con and doing panels at conventions in 2021.

Pay For Engagement, Steam Deck Announced

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 18, 2021

I will be moderating two panels at the Southern-Fried Gaming Expo in Atlanta on August 20-22 as well as four panels at Dragon Con on Labor Day Weekend! Google announced that they are starting a Pay For Engagement model for games on Stadia Pro that pays developers based on how many days consumers open their games. Some game developers are worried about the long-term impacts on game design of this compensation model. Valve has announced the Steam Deck, a handheld PC that plays most of your Steam library. Then we talk to OLR about the Steam Deck and more Yakuza: Like A Dragon.

#SGDQ2021 Recap, Nintendo Switch (OLED Model)

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - July 11, 2021

Summer Games Done Quick 2021 Online is in the books raising over $2.9 million for Doctor's Without Borders. I was backstage for the event and working as a host/donation reader, so I'll talk about what that was like and highlight both speedruns I was on the air for as well as others you should check out. Nintendo announced the Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) and while it has a better screen in handheld mode, it wasn't the 4K Switch Pro that people wanted in their heads. Then we talk to OLR about SGDQ and Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

PAX West Is In Person, Internet Is Enraged

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - June 27, 2021

Reminder - I'm doing two hosting shifts at Summer Games Done Quick 2021 from July 4-11! (There will be no live show on July 4th - see you on the 11th!) I rolled credits on Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and talk about how it's the best showcase of a next gen console so far. PAX West has been announced to be in person Labor Day weekend, however it is not requiring vaccinations - enraging many on the internet. Harsh reality check in this story... Microsoft unveiled Windows 11 and it proves that they are seeing Xbox as an ecosystem and not merely a game console as we've known it. Then we talk to OLR about in-person events making a return after a year and a half of being virtual.

E3 Is Over, But Was It Fulfilling ANYBODY'S Needs This Year?

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - June 20, 2021

Reminder - I'm doing two hosting shifts at Summer Games Done Quick 2021 from July 4-11! We take some viewer comments, and the first one is correcting me that nobody uses Pascal as a programming language anymore... We talk a little bit about Game Builder Garage, and answer if it's going to scare kids away from game development because it can get tedious. We then go into a discussion about E3 and it's relevance and if it fulfilled anyone's needs - and about what E3 used to be versus how it's viewed by the general public today. Nintendo announced new hardware during their Nintendo Direct, but it wasn't what people were hoping for. Arcade1up DIDN'T announce what had been leaked, and in fact rescinded an announcement - with no word as to why. They still announced four new cabinets. Then we talked to OLR about E3 and expectations.
