Bounty Board 049: The Year So Far by Caleb Sawyer

Eric has returned from vacation and the crew is whole once more! With E3 in the rearview and the slow season officially kicked off, the Bounty Board crew decided to take a step back and reflect on the good stuff they have encountered this year.

We talk about our top three games so far this year, why we like them, and why you should give them a shot. Then, for the fall, we give you our Most Anticipated, Sleeper Hit, and Surprise Hit (the one that we are surprised we are interested in).

We’ve got The Fall on the horizon folks. It’s time to dust off that collection of unfinished games and blow up the backlog. And while you are doing that, come hang out with ya boys!

Bounty Board 048: The Ethics of Leaks by Caleb Sawyer

With E3 in the rearview mirror and the coming fall of games, the Bounty Board crew take some time to talk about something that happens frequently in games, especially as E3 approaches: Leaks. There were several things that leaked out to the public in the days drawing up to E3. Bandai Namco had a security breach that lead to the reveal of many unannounced titles, Bleeding Edge footage with a “CONFIDENTIAL” watermark found its way onto the web, details about Star Wars came out.

@hybridglass is out of town this week, exploring the wilds of West Elizabeth (Colorado), so we are joined by friend and fan of the show @RealDirtySmurf. With all of these leaks a debate rose up within the group: Are leaks a good thing or a bad thing? Are there good leaks and bad leaks? Are all leaks the same? Do they damage the perception of the games that are detailed? Do they damage the studios making the games? The questions are abundant in this episode, and the answers aren’t all clear. Join the gang and their guest as we debate the ethics of leaks.

E3 2019 has wrapped. The conferences are over, the show floor has closed up, everyone is headed home, getting ready for the next big show. Perfect time for the Bounty Board crew to get together and talk about all of the news from this week. And boy is there a lot of stuff that went down.

Tune in as we talk through Microsoft, Bethesda, Devolver (holy shit), PC, Ubisoft, Square Enix, and Nintendo’s E3 conferences, the gameplay shown in the following days, hot takes from the show floor, Dr. Disrespect being disrespectful, and that Avengers footage. There is a ton to talk about this week, and this episode is a long one. So strap in. It’s E3 Wrap Up time!

It is here. E3 is just a day away. This is the moment we have all be waiting for. So of course, your crew of wonderful nerds (and @sergeantsodium), sat down and talked about what they wanted to see on video games biggest stage.

This one is dense y’all, so I will stay brief here. We run through a series of questions for each of the big conferences:

  • What do they NEED to do this year?

  • What do we know we will see?

  • Longshot prediction?

  • Sure thing prediction (unannounced)?

  • What will define their presentation?

Dig in folks. There is a lot going on in this one!
