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

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?

News for the week:

Dark Horse’s Mask Comic Making a Return
Overwatch, Summer Games Updates, New Character Tease
Switch Lite Officially Announced

Bounty Board 050: Couch Co-op vs. Online Multiplayer by Caleb Sawyer

Happy Birthday America! While everyone is recovering from ringing ears and freedom beer hangovers, join your favorite nerds as they talk about gathering around the TV with a bunch of friends and blowing other shit up. Couch co-op, sitting next to people for you co-op gaming, was nearly a thing of the past. The Xbox One and PS4, while more powerful systems, didn’t quite continue the legacy of couch co-op games, and instead leaned into playing games online.

In this week’s Bounty Board, the crew sit down and talk about why this transition took place, how it came to be, and whether they think that couch co-op is making a return or if it is dead. To spice things up, Eric brought his couch co-op partner Matt, on the show to join us. Matt and Eric have been going to each other’s house to play games, reigniting the passion for shared gaming experiences.

The guys talk about a lot tonight. They reminisce on Halo: CE and Halo 2, and the global phenomena those games were. They discuss the rise of online gaming and how the introduction of broadband changed the space forever. They talk about Call of Duty, and the wave of PvP game types that became available as a result of dividing the community into their own homes. It is an interesting episode Folks!

News for the week:

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey Gets Final Atlantis Episode Date
Disney Casts Live Action Ariel
Amazon’s Lord of the Rings Gets a Director
Netflix’s Witcher Show Releases Good Screenshots
Game Pass July Games
Apex Season 2 Launches

Bounty Board 010: The Fall (Release Schedule) of Games by Caleb Sawyer

Caleb and Eric gather at the microphones to discuss the overloaded fall release schedule of games. There are 16 larger titles due to release in October alone! When you start counting smaller titles, the number quickly becomes absurd. Is this over-saturation of titles hurting the industry? Would it behoove game makers to spread the wealth and allow the consumers time to save between blockbuster releases? Listen in as we debate about managing our income just to get the things we want this fall!
