What’s up folks! Gamescom 2019 is coming to a close, so the Crew of your favorite podcast decided to dive into all of the announcements and reveals and trailers to give you our takes. Gamescom is kinda like a second E3, so there is a TON to talk about!

Join us as we discuss Disintegration, Death Stranding, Predator, Ghost Recon, Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, Gears of War, and many many more! The titles getting announced continue to look better and better. Still, Bungie has some enticing to do, most of us aren’t ready to invest more time in the Action-MMO-RPG (what even is it, really…?)

News for the week:

Disintegration Gameplay Stuns
Marvel/Sony Deal for Spider-Man in Limbo
Mortal Kombat 11 DLC Characters Revealed
Final Fantasy 8 REMASTER Gets Launch Date
GameStop Lays Over 100 Off, GameInformer Hit Hard

They gang got together this week to do something a little different than usual. For the first time we are dedicating a whole episode to our Bounties, something we plan to do once a month. We wanted to give you, our dear listeners, a better look at the games we enjoyed from the previous month and what we are looking forward to in the next month. The show is called Bounty Board, after all. Why not dedicate more time to telling you what we loved recently?

Tune in this week to hear about Outer Wilds, Apex, Rocket League, Destiny, Mini Metro, Rebel Inc., and many more, as the crew lets you know what’s up! @sergeantsodium is adapting to fatherhood, @LubWub doesn’t know what a day off is, @hybridglass can’t stop talking about his celery purge, and @Bobbypease had a Birthday! Much Excite!

Bounty Board 051: Lootbox Conundrum by Caleb Sawyer

Sorry for the delayed upload! Recording on Thursday threw a little wrench into the works! We have BIG NEWS THIS WEEK!!! @sergeantsodium added a new member to his family!!! Private Sky is reporting for duty!!! Huge congrats to Sarge and his lovely wife on their beautiful newborn. We are all so happy for ya’ll. Needless to say, Sarge is not going to be on the show this week.

In other, less exciting news, @Bobbypease, our own Sawft-Clothez Sommelier, came down ill JUST before we were set to go live. We like our Bobby healthy, so we gave him the night off. We love you Bobby.

So what does that mean? With half of the crew out of the game, @LubWub and @hybridglass called on a long time fan to step up and fill the void! Joining the show this week is the one and only @FatJollyGuy! Fresh back from Guardian Con 2019, and equipped with a new Go XLR, Jolly helps Lub and Glass get to the bottom of the quest. Are lootboxes really that big of a problem?

Bounty Board 014: What Does RPG Really Mean by Caleb Sawyer

download.png

RPG stands for Role Playing Game, plain and simple. Only, it isn't that plain and simple. What does playing a role mean in games? Taking control of a character? Creating your own character?Do you have to have agency over the story or can the story be told to you? What about leveling and progression systems? Quickly, Caleb and Eric realize that, though a lot of things get tagged as RPGs, many of those games have "RPG elements" and aren't actual RPGs. After all, what really is and RPG?
