Bounty Board 042: Games as Art by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoard.jpg

Hey everyone! @LubWub is back! He has returned from the UK and as he came back @hybridglass headed off to Chicago, so we are joined by guest @sketchsawyer on the ol’ Bounty Board! This week we bring up the age old debate: Are Games Art? It is a lively discussion, as the Crew talk table their arguments.

Are all games art or is it only some? Do sports games count as art? Is photorealistic rendering artistic? Is the “Games as Art” movement really “ruining games"? So much to talk about! Join us this week for another episode of your favorite video game podcast: Bounty Board!

Bounty Board 041: Long Games vs. Short Games by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoard.jpg

Hey everybody! It’s been a while since you heard from us, but we’re back! @LubWub is off on vacation in Scotland so the boys took over the show to bring you your weekly dose of Bounty Board. This week the Crew talks about the differences and their preference between long games and short games.

With the arrival of Battle Royale games and the live-service/games as a service, the landscape is changing. Traditional games are adjusting to adapt to these changes. Will long story based games survive? If they can, how will they? What is the allure of the short quick game? Join us this week as we talk about our favorite thing: Games!

Bounty Board 040: The Things We Like by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoard.jpg

Happy Spring/Easter everyone! This week on Bounty Board the crew sits down to talk about the things that we like because we realized that, well, we hadn’t really done that yet. So we dive into the things that we look for in our games. There are so many titles out there that sometimes it is tough to figure out what to play. We discuss the things we look for, the things that keep us coming back for more, and the things that turn us away.

Join us for this fun discussion and learn what the Bounty Board Crew loves about the video game industry as both critics and gamers. We discuss our favorite genres, how we prefer our multiplayer and single player experiences, what we look for in long form RPGs, and what we love about competitive and non-competitive games. Grab a seat and enjoy the show!

Bounty Board 039: First Person or Third Person? by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoard.jpg

This week on Bounty Board, the crew discusses the pros and cons of the two most pervasive perspectives in games: First Person and Third Person. So many games fall into the these two categories. From Call of Duty to Farming Simulator, the perspective we see these games through dictates how we experience games.

In this episode we ask ourselves what about these two viewpoints impacts us and how do they impact the stories and experiences they present. Does third person make for a more immersive experience or first person? When you are playing an RPG with a created character, is third or first person better? Do you play Battle Royale games in third or first person? The questions are nearly endless, but the crew comes to a few pretty solid conclusions. Aaaaaaaand we also get really off track…don’t judge us…

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).

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?
