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 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!

Bounty Board 037: eSports and Stuff by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoard.jpg

So we sat down this week to go in-depth on eSports and then realized…we have already done that. Batting 1.000 over here. So instead of going super deep on eSports, a rapidly growing industry across the globe, we decided to talk about what eSports means to us. Why we watch them, or don’t. What games we like to watch. What games we want to see take center stage. And what games we think will help eSports break through to the beer and nachos crowd.

We also gush a lot about the Borderlands 3 reveal. Because, why wouldn’t we? There are guns with legs, for crying out loud! Also we are are obsessed with the mechanical hunk that is Flak. Dont @ us…

News for the week:

EA Lays Off 350 Employees
April Games with Gold
Borderlands 3 Announced
Borderlands 3 Date Found?
Twitch Squad Stream “Launches”

Bounty Board 029: In Indie We Trust by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoardSMBL.jpg

For the longest time, the biggest and baddest games have fallen in the AAA category. A category of games that comes with millions of dollars for production, a huge marketing budget, dozens (if not hundreds) of developers, and the majority of the community’s attention. Then, in the late 2000s a movement began to gain momentum. As digital distribution grew, smaller studios began to release titles left and right. Titles that spoke to player’s emotions, specific genres and playstyles, and most importantly player’s wallets. Indie games were cheaper, but didn’t cut corners on quality. Almost overnight, indie games became a real contender in the video gaming world.

This week on Bounty Board the crew dives into the indie “revolution” of the late 2000s and the indie “renaissance” we are in now. There are so many good indies that we actually forget that some of the games that we play are in the indie bracket. We reminisce on some of our favorites, talk about what lead to our AAA disenfranchisement, and discuss how indie games have brought the industry back into focus as a whole. A great talk here, folks!

News for the week:

Anthem IAP Clickbait
Batman: Arkham Crisis Rumors
Apex, Titanfall Battle Royale Rumors
