The Bobby Blackwolf Show

391 - 07/14/13 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Nintendo vs. Evo, Steam Summer Sales

  • Are you ready for the Steam Summer Sales? Are you ready to obsess over Steam Trading Cards? We are...And we talk a little bit about Rogue Legacy which was gifted to us, and about how much we suck at it.
  • There's a little bit of talk about Animal Crossing: New Leaf, and how the wall has been hit where it's no longer fun and more of an obligation and a chore.
  • Nintendo pulled a one-eighty worthy of Microsoft by denying the Evo 2013 fighting game tournament rights to stream Super Smash Bros. Melee, only to reverse their decision several hours later.
  • Then we take calls about Dragon Con (no star!), our panel on Sunday night, and the Steam Summer Sale.

The EVO story got me thinking about the SDA Charity Marathons that I am a big fan of. Speed Demos Archive features gamers from around the world doing speed runs on all sorts of games with all the proceeds going to charity. Their last marathon raised almost half a million dollars for cancer research, and their next marathon coming up later this week will support Doctors Without Borders.

I have no idea if they get permission to stream all of these games, though I do know that in the past companies like Blizzard have given them prizes to award to donors in their random giveaways, so obviously there is some contact involved with a a few game companies.
