Ahoy there pirates! It's another week and another guest! I'm pretty sure all of you have taken at least one photo in-game at some point.

Ep. 126 Private Servers are Coming

Ep. 126 Private Servers are Coming

June 29, 2020

Ahoy there Pirates I hope you're having a great week and still enjoying the Haunted Shores update. This week is a light news week so I'm focusing mostly on the news about Rare developing Private Servers for Content Creators. It's a huge push towards getting the community a way to create and showcase events without disrupting normal server play. I was really proud of the Tales of Legend event that Dread Pirate Doug allowed me to co-host and I'm looking forward to future events where we can have more stories from the community. It was also Captain Daggers McTimbers' birthday this weekend and it was one heck of an event with four galleons and 16 people all hanging out to wish her a happy birthday.

Ep. 123 Black Lives Matter/The Pirate Code

June 8, 2020

Ahoy Pirates. This is one of those weeks where I have to take a moment and decide what's right to do with the podcast. I'd decided that I want to take a moment to focus on what's going on in the world. I'll have a traditional episode for you next week but take this week to see what you can do to support black lives matter.

Ep. 122 Chris Johnston and The Lost Treasures

Ep. 122 Chris Johnston and The Lost Treasures

June 1, 2020

Chris Johnston and The Lost Treasures, A Logun Keller production:

It wasn't long before Chris and his pirate pal Logun had soon realized that they were sitting down for a long conversation about the "Lost Treasures". They had poured over the scrolls that detailed what was told about the Lost Treasures but something was bugging them. They weren't sure if it was the cannon bug from earlier or the random completion of daily quests but they felt like something was different in the Sea of Thieves. Rowboats felt more accessible, chatting with others seemed larger than life, and dying with a pistol in your hand was no longer the only option. What was "lost" about these treasures?

Neither of them could truly answer the question without spending a good amount of time talking it out and trying to decypher these foreign texts that seem to add the letter 'u' to random words. It's fair to say that hopefully by the end of their conversation we hope to understand better what the Lost Treasures are but until that time we find CJ and Logun chiming in after some very well produced and catchy theme music accompanied by a voice that could only be described as the voice of Sea of Thieves.

Meanwhile, outside the tavern a man dressed as a Ruby Splashtail sporting a crown and a smile that could only mean trouble and a loss of Ancient Coin pulled up to the dock and asked the local shipwright where one could go where everyone knows your name. The man looks up and sees a darkened cloud slowly moving in over the island and the crack of thunder echoes across the seas.

Man, "Let's get dangerous."

Ahoy there pirates! This week I dive into the videos that were released from Rare regarding the upcoming Quality of Life improvements and bug fixes for Lost Treasures on May 27th. Also we got a trailer announcing the new release date for the Steam release of Sea of Thieves. There's some good info about what you should know if you're thinking about picking it up. I wanted to talk a bit more about my experience with Arena going into the final days of the Competition of Courage and dive into an interesting idea of testing out Sword and Gun as a locked combination. I'd love to hear your thoughts on this so be sure to check out the contact links below to let me know.

Ahoy Pirates, with this month giving us a Quality of Life update I wanted to ask you all what you wanted to see from the team. I got far more responses than I was anticipating and as a result, I decided to dedicate this entire episode to just feedback and ideas. I want to thank everyone that reached out to me with your honest feelings. As we look forward to the next couple weeks I hope the team at Rare is doing well and is not getting stressed about working from home.

Ep. 119 SightlessKombat on Sailing the Seas

Ep. 119 SightlessKombat on Sailing the Seas

May 10, 2020

Ahoy Pirates!

I hope you had a good weekend, hopefully sailing the seas and getting some wins in Arena! This week I sat down with SightlessKombat an Xbox Ambassador who was recently featured as the XA of the Month! A lot of the conversation was around what life is like playing games without sight. As you would imagine there are a lot of limitations that areas in game development that can be addressed to help improve gaming for many who have limited sight or none at all. If you're curious to try out what it's like spend some time with your crew and have a blindfold on to restrict the temptation. Have your crew lead you around and realize just how much harder it is to get around or fight skellies. This is a much longer episode as I'm sure you've noticed so I would recommend around the one hour mark taking a break and coming back to the podcast. Thanks for all you do and if you'd like to support me look down to the link below, I'm going to have some new merch in the near future when I set up the products in the teespring store. Hopefully, these notes make up for the lack of said notes in the Shoreleave episode.

Sailboat May 14th: Obsidian Sails
Waving black flag May 21st: Obsidian Flag
Merperson May 28th: Obsidian Figurehead

Shoreleave 005: Inside Xbox May 7th, 2020!

May 8, 2020

***Updated File with better-balanced audio***
Ahoy pirates, took some shore leave to talk about some of the awesome stuff that's going on in the gaming industry because honestly there's a lot to talk about! I was going to be a good boy and list all the links to things in the show notes but it's 4 am and I don't think you actually read these, so I'm just going to put whatever I want here and there's nothing you can say or do to stop me. I'm like the money in Pirates of the Caribbean. I'm already undead so shooting me isn't going to stop me from stealing things. Look it makes sense in my head but if you're really curious I suppose I could put at least one link in here. https://news.xbox.com/en-us/2020/05/07/inside-xbox-may-2020-episode-news-recap/ There, I hope you're happy. No, really I do actually hope you're happy. That way when you think about why you're reading this you might look back fondly and decide not to unsub from the feed. I promise I haven't been doing anything that would alter my mental capacity; I'm just really sleepy. Anyways, I did the episode with CJ from Player One Podcast so make sure you go listen to that if you aren't already. He's a good dude and we went sailing after the episode and pulled in a couple of levels of Merchant Alliance by running cargo. Which by the way is really relaxing, especially when you run into two fresh brig spawns who aren't expecting a sloop to sail upon them. Have I mentioned how much I love McDonald's chicken nuggets? Exquisite.
