Bounty Board 034: What is a Gamer? by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoard.jpg

Games have been a round a long time. Like, before most of our show hosts were born, sorry @hybridglass (he’s old). But because they have been around so long, millions of people have been impacted by games. That group of gamers is diverse as all heck! Men, women, boys, girls, white, black, young, old, gay, straight. Gamers come in EVERY size and shape. So to celebrate that, we wanted to talk about not only what this beautiful group looks like, but how we came to call ourselves gamers as well.

This week on Bounty Board the crew celebrates being gamers. We talk about where it all started for us. We talk about how it has changed our lives. We talk about the impact it has had not only in our social circles but in our families. Truly, we can all be gamers, and the more people who join us, the stronger we become (boy did that sound ominous *wrings hands excitedly).

News for the week:

Friday the 13th: The Game Coming to Switch
Beat Saber to Get First Music Pack
New Shazam Trailer
Bonnie Ross on Closing Gender Gap in Games

Remember huddling around the TV to play Halo together on the original Xbox? Lobbing grenades at elites and grunts, slicing your way through waves of the Flood, all while sitting right next to your buddy? Games have come a long way since those days. Has co-op gotten better? Worse? How has it changed? Join Caleb and Eric as they talk about their favorite co-op gaming experiences and look forward to what the future might hold.

NerdyBits Podcast: GamerGate by Benjamin Sawyer

We wrap up the podcasts from our first recording session with our discussion on last year's GamerGate. We all know how touchy the topic can be, and we did our best here to remain as objective as possible. But in the end, when it came down to it, we all felt the same way: The way women are portrayed in the videogame industry, be it in games themselves, or their participation in the development process, needs to change for the better. After all, women make up nearly half of the gaming community. Shouldn't they get a fair shake?

Please feel free to comment below, but don't be a jerk. These are our personal opinions, nothing to get twisted about.

NerdyBits Podcast: Individual GOTY by Benjamin Sawyer

Well it has been a little longer in between these podcasts than I originally had planned. I apologize for that. Had a few personal issues that had to be dealt with and when that was over my computer decided to not connect to the internet...

But enough with all of that! It is time for you to hear our 2014 Individual Game of the Year Awards! Listen to us debate who deserves the title of best game last year. We promise you'll enjoy it.

When you are finished with that prepare for our Game Awards Show, releasing soon.
