History

The origins of Punished Bets trace back to the series of Betting Specials between Kyle and Huber back at GameTrailers. These specials carried over to Easy Allies with E3 2016 acting as the first EZA Betting Special. After losing the bet, Kyle took advantage of the loopholes in the contract that Huber had made him sign, which resulted in The Trial of Kyle Bosman.

On Easy Allies Podcast #11 - June 1, 2016, Jones and Ben made a bet on whether or not a new Battletoads would be announced during E3 2016. Ben lost the bet and was forced to stream the NES game, Battletoads until he either beat the third level or streamed for four hours.

The next Betting Special was jointly held for the PlayStation Meeting / Tokyo Game Show events in September 2016. Brad was the winner, resulting in the other Allies having to perform a concert about him.

In the Fall of 2016, Huber and Blood made a bet on the Easy Allies Podcast on whether you would be able to walk into a store and purchase an NES Classic by the end of the year. Blood was convinced that Nintendo would have ample supply for the holiday season and had to photograph an NES Classic on a store shelf as proof. Blood was not able to find an NES Classic in stores, resulting in him having to stream the NES game, Kung Fu for one hour.

The PSX / The Game Awards 2016 Betting Special had Huber going up against Ultima Brad for the Slusser Cup. Ultima Brad would come out on top, forcing Huber to wear the gear of the San Francisco Giants on camera for two weeks. This was a personal punishment given Huber's favorite team is the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Giants are their longtime rivals.

A side bet was also made between Huber and Kyle on the Easy Allies Podcast on if a Nintendo Switch release date would be announced in 2016. Huber bet no, resulting in him having to stream a full playthrough of Dead Space 3. Brad provided support by accompanying him in the first stream, but Huber was forced to finish the rest of the streams alone.

For the 2017 Nintendo Switch Presentation Betting Special, the losers would have to create a diorama based on the topic of the winner's choosing. Cold-Blooded was the winner of the Betting Special and he chose Dino Crisis as the topic for the dioramas.

Cold-Blooded lost to Ultima Brad in the E3 2017 Betting Special, resulting in Blood having to stream a full playthrough of Dark Souls III and the DLC while cosplaying as a Dark Souls character. Blood asked for a concession to only wear the cosplay in the first and last streams which Ultima Brad agreed with as long as Kyle deemed the costume worthy enough.

The Easy Allies West Division competed in the Tokyo Game Show 2017 Betting Special and resulted in a three-way tie for first place between Huber, Isla, and Damiani. All three contestants faced off in the tiebreaker in the mini-game, Bowser's Big Blast from Mario Party 2. Isla won and had the right to choose the topic for a 5.5 minute PowerPoint presentation the losers would have to create, present, and be graded on a 100-point scale. Isla chose "My Six Favorite Things About The Galapagos" as the topic.

Around the beginning of 2017, Huber and Kyle placed a bet after Nintendo announced they were ceasing production of the NES Classic. Kyle believed Nintendo would not make any more Classic consoles while Huber believed some sort of follow-up would reveal itself. Nintendo later announced the SNES Classic, forcing Kyle to stream Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for no more or less than 20 minutes. He delivered on the Punished Bet on November 27, 2017.

Sometime around August 2017, Huber and Kyle made a bet on whether or not Sonic Forces would include microtransactions. Huber believed there would be due to all of the character customization and lost the bet. The Punished Bet was finally delivered on August 18, 2018, during Easy Livin' 2018.

For the E3 2018 Betting Special, Rainy Day Isla ended Ultima Brad's winning streak as champion. As a result, Brad had to do a shot-for-shot recreation of the end of the 2003 film, Lost in Translation. The Punished Bet premiered on September 13, 2018.

Betting Specials returned for E3 2019. The format changed and had Huber coming out on top over the other Allies. The losing Allies have to write and perform a Kingdom Hearts monologue taking place in the year 1992 with the title, “Who Am I?” which premiered on June 26, 2019.

After Kyle announced he was departing Easy Allies on April 24, 2020, a multitude of outstanding Punished Bets were settled. This included Isla cosplaying as Spider-Gwen, Kyle hunting Huber in Halo 2, Kyle and Ben performing a Samus duet, and Kyle creating a cutscene from Kingdom Hearts III.

A new season of Betting Specials began on June 9, 2020 for the PS5 reveal event and continued on to the July 2020 Xbox Series X event and E3 2021. Huber and Don formed teams to see who would accrue the most Don Bucks at the end of each Betting Special and at the end of the season. Huber lost the first two Betting Specials, resulting in him having to create and perform two "deleted scenes" from the 1992 film, Batman Returns. However, Team Don would lose in the E3 2021 Betting Special, resulting in Don, Damiani, Brad, and Blood having to collectively create and perform a fictional cutscene from an unannounced sequel.
