    742 - 01/10/21 Bobby Blackwolf Show - #AGDQ2021 Hosting Recap: DMC3, Yoshi's Island, Yakuza 6 (RUGBY BABY)

    Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online concluded after raising $2.7 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. As a host/donation reader, I was fully immersed in the GDQ spirit throughout the week and gained some insight into the choices made by the event organizers. I discuss why incentives are sometimes set high (and then pushed), which donation comments I chose to read, why some donation comments never got to me, and then I go through both of my shifts to discuss how tone changed and what I was attempting to invoke when I was on the microphone. On Wednesday night, during the push for the Zelda: Wand of Gamelon All Cutscene bonus game, I started with Devil May Cry 3 by Waifu. This had hilarious commentary with fast action, high paced gameplay. Zingers flew freely. Immediately after that, the tone shifted to a more relaxing tone with the impressive Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island 100% by Calco. Both the runner and commentator Niakky have English as a Second Language and were nervous about having to perform in English. Then, on Friday, it was all about Yakuza 6: The Song of Life by Froob. The main donation incentive here was a Yakuza cutscene called "Rugby Baby." I had not seen the cutscene ahead of time, which influenced how we (Froob and myself) chose to present it to the audience. Also: I do explain where "SpikeVegeta And Crew" came from, and how it was trying to cover myself and not create a bigger flub.

    741 - 01/03/21 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Adobe Flash Going Offline, Anticipated Games of 2021

    We visit some comments regarding previous episodes, including some more reminiscing on the Commodore 64 and how we might have formerly on the wrong side of the law but now on the right one. Adobe has finally killed off the Flash platform, taking the memes of the early 2000's offline forever, unless you use an emulator. We ask the chat (and you) what games are you anticipating in 2021? Then we talk to OLR about the death of Adobe Flash and how it affects our day jobs.

    Reminder: I'm hosting on Wednesday and Friday nights at Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online! Check the schedule for the exact times. Arcade1up released a firmware update for the OutRun cabinet that added Rad Rally to the list of games - but it doesn't go as smoothly as expected.

    739 - 12/20/20 Bobby Blackwolf Show - Cyberpunk 2077 Impressions and Unintentional Xbox Exclusivity

    Reminder: I'm going to be hosting at Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 Online on Wednesday and Friday evening the first week of January! Come participate in a wonderful event for charity. Cyberpunk 2077 has been pulled from the PlayStation Network Store and are offering full refunds after CD Projekt Red told customers to seek a refund from Sony if they didn't like the performance on last-gen hardware. Even though it's now an Xbox/PC Exclusive, Microsoft is also offering full refunds, but did not pull the game from their digital storefront. If you're wondering how this passed certification - it's because console certification isn't QA, it just makes sure that the game doesn't destroy the console. I have played the first eight hours on an Xbox Series X, and there's some glimpses of greatness in there. Then we take a call about how GameSpot gave Half-Life: Alyx their Game Of The Year award and how it seems like a milestone for VR gaming.

    738 - 12/13/20 Bobby Blackwolf Show - The C64 Impressions, Cyberpunk 2077's Epilepsy Trigger

    We dedicate this episode to the memory of Eric Engstrom, one of the renegades at Microsoft who brought us DirectX in the 90's, which led to the creation of the Xbox platform. I'm hosting at Awesome Games Done Quick 2021! Catch me on Wednesday night hosting Devil May Cry 3 and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and again on Friday night hosting Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. The Game Awards took place, and it went well for being a virtual event. Cyberpunk 2077 launched with a major epilepsy trigger based on real medical devices used for diagnosis purposes, but was patched by the time we went on the air. I finally received The C64 - the full size version of the C64 Mini, and the addition of a fully working keyboard that is true to the native Commodore 64 layout makes it my favorite "retro" console to date. Then we take calls about the epilepsy trigger in Cyberpunk 2077 (along with correcting some surprising disinformation) and more talk about The C64.
