What’s up everyone! We’re doubling up on the SPECIAL GUEST thing, only this time it’s different…

Folks, on this week’s episode of Bounty Board, we are joined by the creator of Twisted Metal and God of War, David Jaffe!!! (@davidscottjaffe)

Together, your full Bounty Board crew and Jaffe discuss the changing world of social media and public opinion and its impact on game development. Should studios be sensitive to crowd input? Should they look to their fans for decision making feedback?

We also digress a lot. Like…a lot. But that’s nothing out of the ordinary right? We talk about comics, the hype train, Alabama lake houses. We talk about it all! Join us for a truly SPECIAL episode!

Bounty Board 061: Battle Royale: Here to Stay? by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoard.jpg

What’s up everyone! It’s that time again! Eric is away on a work trip, so this week three of the Bounty Board crew members return to discuss the lasting power of the Battle Royale game type (mode?). Fortnite is two years old. PUBG two and a half. How have those games done in their time on the market? More importantly, how are other Battle Royales doing?

Since the initial craze of the last man standing game mode, we have seen several titles tick across our feeds. Vigor, The Darwin Project, Ring of Elysium, and perhaps most notably, Apex Legends. At the same time, the “I can’t escape this” craze has seemingly died down. Join Caleb, Ben, and Ryan as they discuss whether Battle Royale is here to stay, or if it is on its way out.

Bounty Board 055: Toxicity in Games by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoard.jpg

What’s up folks! This weeks Bounty Board comes with a bit of a bittersweet moment. Our very own Sawft-Clothez Sommelier is heading out. Bobby is stepping away from the show to pursue a few other opportunities and tend to some changes in routine at home. Bobby has been an incredible member of the team, and we are all so happy to have had the opportunity to share this show with him. Godspeed in your new endeavors friend, and don’t be a stranger!

This week on Bounty Board, with guest host , the crew dives a discussion about Toxicity in Games. We discuss the toxicity we have experienced, the toxic tactics we have seen deployed, the toxic tactics we have used at times, and what the road to a less toxic environment might look like. How will big companies like Microsoft and Sony work to counter-act toxic interactions and repeat offenders? Is there a way to do this effectively or will toxicity always be around in some way? Is toxicity inherent to gaming?

@hybridglass is traveling this week as well, so tune in to hear @LubWub and @sergeantsodium hold it down with guest @sketchsawyer!

Hey folks! Dont know if you have noticed this or not, but Apex Legends is CRUSHING IT! In the first month alone the new Battle Royale game out of Respawn Entertainment has accrued 50 million players. There is just so much that Apex is getting right that the Bounty Board crew HAD to talk about it.

We talk about our favorite Legends to play with, the ones we didn’t jive with, what we like about this new take on the Battle Royale genre, and so many other things. Like, how is the Ping system so damn good? Who would have thought that a hero style shooter would make a good Battle Royale game. Apex Marketing 101: A Class in Surprise Launch Hype. We love Apex, come find out why.
