Steam vs. Certain Technologies, Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Price

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - October 17, 2021

Valve has decided that certain currency technologies will not be permitted on the Steam store. Some decry this will be the end of Steam. The Epic Games Store has welcomed those same currency technologies...kind of. Nintendo released the price of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack and...vote with your wallet. HTC announced the HTC Vive Flow, a new standalone headset that looks like aviator glasses and has the best lens technology that all other VR headsets should steal. Sora was announced as the final DLC character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. A little bit of a longer episode due to a temporary power outage at OLR studios! Thank you all for the kind words during my one week "hiatus".

Twitch's New Music Deal, Xbox Shortages Until 2022

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - October 3, 2021

We start off with some viewer advice regarding utilizing the Authy Authenticator app instead of Google Authenticator for your Nintendo Online account. We also have a followup regarding the peer-to-peer networking discussion from the previous episode, along with a list of AAA titles utilizing that method of online gaming. I finally built the gaming PC I started buying parts for a year ago! And it all worked on first boot! But, building a PC has changed a lot since I last did it in 2012. Twitch gets itself another music deal with Warner Music Group - but it's only a benefit to Twitch and WMG artists, not for game streamers who want to play WMG music in the background. Phil Spencer says that Xbox shortages will continue until 2022 thanks to a perfect storm of bad events. I continue talking about my pinball journey with the new code release for The Mandalorian, and how it showed me that a portion of my machine is not working. Then we talk to OLR about New World and the massive queues that streamers are seeing. This is going to be the last episode for an undetermined amount of time. I go into surgery on October 4th that will affect my ability to perform to my satisfaction. Best case scenario is that the show will be back on the air on October 17th - however that is all dependent on the recovery and rehab after the procedure. Keep checking the VOG Network Discord as well as my Twitter account @BobbyBlackwolf for updates. We'll see you when we see you.

Super Mario Bros Movie Cast, Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 26, 2021

During the Nintendo Direct this week, the cast of the Super Mario Bros movie was announced, and Charles Martinet isn't playing Mario. People asked why they would not use the original voice of Mario, when he's not the original voice...You'd be surprised to hear who is! They also announced the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, which adds Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games to the service. Xbox 360 Gamerpics are returning to the Xbox One and Xbox Series hardware! If you still have the old Bobby Blackwolf gamerpic, now you can bring it back to your Xbox profile. Twitch signed a deal with a music publishing agency that still doesn't let you stream music. Then we take a call about Nintendo's online system not improving, yet they want to charge more money for roms.

LittleBigPlanet PS3 Servers Offline, ZX Spectrum Memories

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 19, 2021

Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 will be online only again in January. The Georgia Indies Bundle on Itch.io celebrates many great indie games made in Georgia for $10. Sony has announced that the PS3 and Vita servers for LittleBigPlanet will not be returning after being shut down several months ago due to a DDoS attack. We pay respects to Sir Clive Sinclair, the inventor of the ZX Spectrum. Then we talk to Rob about No Man's Sky and the ZX Spectrum.

Dragon Con 2021 Recap, Epic v. Apple Result

The Bobby Blackwolf Show - September 12, 2021

Dragon Con has taken place, and we talk all about how it was weird, but good. We do spend a lot of time talking about the pandemic and how it did - and didn't - affect Dragon Con, and you might be surprised about some of what is said...Especially if you read a lot of social media. I showed off some LED masks during the segment - there is a Twitch Clip of this available without subscribing, but they are by a company called Neon Culture, and are Arduino LED boards that are fit into masks and other apparel like hats and backpacks. The CEO of Tripwire Interactive has stepped down from that position after making a tweet on behalf of his company about politics - and I talk about why this entire event was worrisome for prospective new game developers in Georgia. The judge in the Epic v. Apple trial has rendered judgment - and if you wanted both sides to lose, well, you got your wish. Then we talk to Rob about Dragon Con, No Man's Sky's new expedition, and that tweet he made while visiting my house.
