Persona 5 Strikers Early Impressions, Blizzard Brings Back Its Best Game

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - February 21, 2021

We start off with a viewer comment regarding Google and its connected accounts that could control your entire digital life. BlizzConline was this weekend, and there was a legendary musical act who performed but wasn't heard by most of the audience. However, Blizzard DID announce that it was rereleasing the best game in its collection - Rock N Roll Racing is out with the Blizzard Arcade Collection alongside The Lost Vikings and Blackthorne. The Intellivision Amico has been delayed again - it slipped from its initial launch date of 10-10-2020 to 4-3-2021, and now has slipped again to October 10, 2021 - exactly one year after its initially announced launch. Persona 5 Strikers was released early for people who purchased the Digital Deluxe edition - and I had gotten about 10 hours into it over the weekend. Then we talk to OLR about putting some respect into Diablo's name.

Stadia Port Cancelled, CD Projekt Red Ransomware Hack

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - February 14, 2021

Google cancelled a developer's entire Google account for an unknown TOS violation on YouTube, and after not being able to talk to a person at Google about losing all of their email, documents, and Google Play purchases, it was announced that Terraria's Google Stadia port has been cancelled. CD Projekt Red was the victim of a ransomware attack that stole source code for many games past and future as well as internal documents seemingly "damning" against the company. The hacked contents were subsequently sold on the black market for an undisclosed sum with the stipulation that they not be resold by the original hackers. This includes a dramatic reading of the ransom note left on CDPR's servers. I did roll credits on Cyberpunk 2077 (a couple times) and - the game was fine. Then we talk to OLR mostly about the recently released Pixel Poops on Steam, as well as the Commodore 64 version of the game and LOKI from OLR's NES game Pixel Poops No. 2.

EA Revives A Franchise, Google Cancels A Franchise Before It Starts

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - February 7, 2021

This show was recorded during the Big Game - which I actually have a history with as a performer in a Disney-produced halftime show. EA has announced that a beloved franchise is making a triumphant return - EA Sports College Football is coming back in a few years. I finished Yakuza: Like A Dragon and if you like turn based JRPG style games, then you really should try it out. Apple's VR Headset is rumored to cost over $3000 and include multiple cameras and eye sensors. Google has disbanded the Stadia Games & Entertainment division and will no longer produce first party games for the Stadia service. Then we talk to OLR about the fall of SG&E, the OTHER EA franchise getting revived, and the announcement of Final Fantasy XIV Online's new expansion.

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor's Nemesis Patent (and other video game patents)

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - January 31, 2021

We start by saying we won't be talking about the GameStop stonk, and then talk about it for a few minutes. But, it's really not a video game story, and financial investing kinda isn't our thing. Warner Bros has finally been granted a patent on the Nemesis system from 2014's Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, which means you won't see anything like it in other games until 2035. Which takes us down a rabbit hole of video game patents that have expired (games inside loading screens, practice mode button display, arrows to point you to an objective), some expiring soon (sphere grids, sanity meters, stylish driving trackers), and some expiring in a while (rolling up objects to become bigger, using a wheel to pick dialogue choices, controlling two characters at once with a single input.) Then we talk to OLR about why GameStop is important to people enough to use them as their stonks rallying cry.

Xbox Live Gold Pricing, Apple To Finally Invent VR

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - January 24, 2021

Microsoft couldn't read the room and announced a price hike for Xbox Live Gold, but then retracted it about 15 hours later. Apple will finally invent VR and AR by releasing a VR headset in 2022 and AR glasses in 2023 or 2024. Capcom allowed streamers to co-stream their Resident Evil 8: Village reveal event this week, but only if they promised to only say positive things about Capcom. Then we talk to OLR about costreaming events in the future.
