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!

Xbox E3 Conference Details Start Coming Out

Bounty Board 020: A Moral Compass by Caleb Sawyer

How good or bad are you when you play a game? Do you step into the role of hero, savior, saint of the people, doing everything you can to be good? Or are you a monster, taking life at every chance, leaving a swath of destruction in your wake? Do you play as if the character is you, or do you roleplay the character in the game?

This week on Bounty Board, Caleb and Eric are joined by another special guest: Benjamin Sawyer. Together they debate the use of morality in games, speak to their own playstyles, and break down times when morality worked for them and times that it didn’t. How do they play Arthur Morgan, protagonist (question mark?) of Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption 2? Is he a Criminal with a heart of gold, or a ruthless outlaw? This ain’t no place for no heroes.

Bounty Board 016: A Tale to Tell by Caleb Sawyer

What makes a good videogame story? Is it cutscenes? Is it player agency? Does it matter if your character has their own voice? This week on Bounty Board Caleb and Eric dig into these questions in a discussion about what makes stories good or bad in games. There is a lot to discuss, but stick around and we play an interesting game of “Where would you live?” at the end. Because, let’s be honest, everyone has a fantasy world that they want to live in.
