The Bobby Blackwolf Show


The Bobby Blackwolf Show is a weekly internet radio show and podcast discussing the latest news in video games as told by the gamers themselves. It records LIVE on Sundays at 8PM Eastern/5PM Pacific on the VOG (Voice of Geeks) Network while taking live calls via Skype or a toll free number and including chat room interaction. The show began in October of 2004 as an internet radio only show, taking a hiatus in December of that year. It relaunched on July 24, 2005 and has been broadcasting new content every weekend ever since.

While the show focuses on recent news and events in the gaming industry, frequently it delves into the independent or barely mentioned gaming scene, as well as discussing gaming's history with classic games.

Bobby has covered six E3's, two GDC's and Independent Games Festivals, four Penny Arcade Expos and five Dragon*Cons, as well as other gaming events in the southeast, like SIEGE.

Some guests of the show during its long run have been: Video Games Live, Homestar Runner, Atari Flashback 2, Beggar Prince, MechCorps, The Silver Lining, PlayStation Home, Gearbox Software, Devolver Digital, Telltale Games, and the IGDA. Bobby has also interviewed voice actors AJ LoCascio (Back To The Future), Jessie Seely (Double Dragon Neon), Ellen McClain (GLaDOS), John Patrick Lowrie (Team Fortress 2 Sniper), and Jennifer Hale (Mass Effect FemShep), as well as musicians Tommy Tallarico (Everything), Ken Allen (Sierra On-Line), Jake "Virt" Kaufman (Shovel Knight and DuckTales Remastered), and GRAMMY award winner Christopher Tin.

The show does not work without YOUR live interaction, and each chatter is thanked personally at the conclusion of each episode. Come join us on Sundays at 8PM Eastern/5PM Pacific at the VOG (Voice of Geeks) Network!

The Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 5.0 was this past weekend, and I took very little video, so I'll just tell you about it here. Amazon dropped the ball on their Mario Kart 8 Deluxe delivery, so it sounds like Prime is not so Prime anymore. Nintendo has announced the New 2DS XL and this marks the end of 3D handheld gaming. Then we take calls about 3D, Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap, Othello, and a new show coming to VOG!

In Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, if you try to play in Wireless Play mode, you can only use two controllers - and each Joy-Con is a controller, so you can't use them together. There's a very real physics reason for this. Rumors and sources say the SNES Classic is coming, but should we reward Nintendo? Then we take calls about Persona 5, Saints Row 2, and offloading CPU tasks to cloud servers.

The Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 5.0 is April 28-29th, and VOG will be there exhibiting! Nintendo has listened to consumers cries and will end their endless searching - they have discontinued the NES Classic. Microsoft will allow users to refund digital purchases on the Xbox One and Windows 10, and it looks a lot like Steam's. Then we talk about Persona 5 and it's jazzy battle music that has been totally memed.

Atlus really, REALLY doesn't want you streaming Persona 5, and the community isn't taken it too well. But, it's a fun game. Microsoft announced some Project Scorpio details, but don't believe them when they say there will never be Scoripo-exclusive games in the future. Then we take calls about Yooka-Laylee, Puyo Puyo Tetris, and Persona 5.

I will be at the Vintage Computer Festival Southeast 5.0 in Roswell, GA on April 29th and 30th showing mid-90's PC games on an authentic mid-90 PC! Persona 5 is coming out, and has a Bobby Blackwolf Mode...but Atlus doesn't want you to stream it. Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus, has separated from Facebook three years after the purchase of the company. Then we take calls about Guitar Hero Live, Mad Catz, and Final Fantasy XIV: Daddy of Light.

There totally was only one game that released this week that has the Internet buzzing, and it's Othello for the Nintendo Switch. Or was it the Splatoon 2 Testfire? No, it was Rock Band VR for the Oculus Rift. I give my impressions of it using my already owned Xbox One guitar. The hardware needed with the Oculus Touch, and how the game is dramatically different from the Rock Band we know and love. While talking about it, I reminisce about an old text-based DOS game called Rockstar, and chat actually found a link about it. Then we do talk to OLR about Mass Effect: Andromeda.

The Doctor Who Pinball Arcade tables (both the original 90's table and an original Master of Time table) have been finally released on Xbox One and PS4 after having been on Steam since last year. I finally tried 2015's Human Resource Machine, and as a software developer, I really liked it. Nintendo is doubling production of the Switch due to large demand. Then we take calls about Werewolves Within, 3D BluRays on PSVR, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The Nintendo Switch has now been out a week and there's already more games for it - and I was able to get a Pro Controller. I did accidentally break my kickstand, but was able to pop it back in before my stream of Fast RMX. I checked out VOEZ, the mobile rhythm game that only works on the Switch touchscreen. Sony released the 4.5 update and allows for external hard drives! Microsoft announced the Xbox Game Pass, a Netflix-like service of downloadable games. Oculus has dropped the price of the Rift and Touch, is it time for you to get it? Then we take calls about PSVR getting 3D, Danganronpa Class Trial VR and the Nintendo Switch.

The Nintendo Switch is now out! Unless you ordered on Amazon, then you might have gotten screwed. I try to tell a sob story about missing out on a Pro Controller, but then again, I at least have a console... We talk about the hardware of the Switch and how the cartridges smell bad. I totally didn't play much of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. 1-2 Switch has many wonderful audiogames and helps open up gaming to a specific audience. Snipperclips and Fast RMX are also good $20 games. Then we take calls about accessibility in games, and then more about Zelda and the Switch.

We begin by talking about a comment about security with online gaming systems, the Nintendo Switch, and LEGO Dimensions. The PAL SNES games feared stolen were found by the USPS! ZeniMax has filed an injunction against Oculus that would halt the sale of all hardware and software (including games using the Oculus drivers) that they claim violates their copyrights. Sony can't keep the PlayStation VR in stock, as it has sold almost a million units. We then take calls about how great PSVR is and that the VR revolution might be almost here, and that the Nintendo Switch is also almost here.
