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 023: The Horror of Video Game Movies by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoardSMBL.jpg

Why can’t we get a good video game movie? Seriously. Why does it feel like every time we get our hopes up that someone will get it right, those same hopes get dashed against the rocks when the film comes out? This week on Bounty Board Caleb and Eric try and figure out why so many of these movies are bad, and if we will ever get a good one. Also…what the fuck is up with that Sonic the Hedgehog poster?

We apologize for the warbly audio with this episode. A technical failure that didn’t show its head until the edit, unfortunately.

Bounty Board 017: Do Games Take Themselves too Seriously? by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoardSMBL.jpg

Do games take themselves too seriously? I mean, think about it, when was the last time you laughed in a game? When was the last time you played a game that was consistently funny? It’s a little hard to think of one outside of Borderlands and Portal 2, right? Maybe our favorite medium needs to ease up on the grim gravy and dole out a little silly sauce. Yes…I just said that…

Join Caleb and Eric as they discuss this weeks topic, and try their hardest to be the most serious boys around!

Bounty Board 011: What Defines the Game of the Year (GOTY)? by Caleb Sawyer

Caleb and Eric gather at the microphones to discuss what it is that defines a game worthy of the title Game of the Year. With so many games coming out, how do you pick just one? We discuss what we look for in the GOTY, as well as define what categories we break the award into (i.e. Indie GOTY, Adventure GOTY, Roleplaying GOTY. The list can get tediously long in some places, so how do you keep it brief but spread credit out where credit is due. Stop by and listen as we dig in before gaming season kicks off!

E3 2018 is SO CLOSE!

What's up everyone!? Ready for E3 this weekend? Well we are!

A new Bounty Board crew assembles (because half of the old group turned to dust...) to give our E3 2018 thoughts, predictions, hopes, and dreams. We talk about everything folks, including a strange obsession with Keith David making an appearance on the show stage? Don't even know where that idea comes from...oh well.

Give us a listen, comment with your own predictions and hopes. Let us know if you enjoy listening to us! We will be back next week to talk about how E3 went. Happy E3!!!

Episode 001 by Benjamin Sawyer

This week we disect our experiences with Mass Effect 3. Not just because it's a hot topic right now, but because we are fans of the series and we all genuinely enjoyed the game. A voice that might be lost in the sea of anger and rabid fandom. 

Thank you for your patronage! Come back or subscribe for our weekly updates!
