The Bobby Blackwolf Show

664 - 06/02/19 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Antstream Arcade Impressions, Microsoft's PC Gaming Approach

  • E3 is coming next week, and we'll be on the air during the Bethesda conference, but not reacting to it live.
  • Super Smash Bros Ultimate released a VR mode with Nintendo Labo this week, and it's not as vomit inducing as Zelda!
  • Kickstarter backers of Antstream Arcade got into an Early Access Closed Beta this week, and I had some time with the service.
  • Cuphead is coming to Tesla cars - but not mine.
  • Microsoft announced a new approach to PC gaming, including selling on Steam, bringing Game Pass to PC, and not forcing UWP on their store.
  • Then we take calls about Wander on the Oculus Go and Anstream Arcade.

Guess I'll have to stream both the same time on Sunday...Bethesda conference starts at 5:30pm, hopefully they kick off with fallout 76 so I can mute the Bethesda stream lol

Saw two conference so far, Google stadia and EA. Bad start in my opinion... Then again, been to many E3s so hype level is not what it used to be.

Google Stadia is basically Onlive (with no exclusives). Disappointed that you must purchase the subscription and game also. Hoping for it to be the Netflix of games

Add to that 1TB if data for 65hours game play in 4k. Which for hardcore gamers won't last a week with data caps

Google says ISP will increase data caps "because they're Google". Which I doubt, better off lobbying to bring back net neutrality

EA had an unconventional format. Nice that they divide each game presentation into 30min segments. Was only interested in one (star wars fallen order) so skipped the rest (battlefield v, Apex legend, Sims, FIFA 20).

Fallen order looks like uncharted/tomb raider with starwars skin from the 15min demo

Think EA abandoned anthmn due to horrible launch and no roadmap for future content

Hopefully E3 had a false start and MS will blow all other conferences out of the water

Finished watching Microsoft press conference.

As expected, by the numbers.

No console/xcloud price or release date.

Just a teaser for next console. Sounds similar to PS5 in terms of hardware, minimum load times. Disappointed they didn't show physical design; makes it seem like it's a ways off

Gamepass for $1 is a pretty sweet deal though

I didn't check the comments section again when you posted this, so I didn't read this part on the air. However, I don't think we watched the same conference, because they definitely said "Holiday 2020" for the release date of the new console, which, if you follow history, will translate to either November 6, 2020 or November 13, 2020. We'll get pricing next year at this time.

MS probably didn't want to do the console reveal first this time seeing how they were humiliated by Sony that one E3
