Bounty Board 035: The Division 2 is Here! by Caleb Sawyer

The Bounty Board crew has been excited about Division 2 since the day it was announced. Last week they got to dive into the new title from Massive Entertainment and Ubisoft. 20 levels deep, and impressed by what the sequel to the best selling new franchise ever has to offer, we want to talk all things Division 2.

The first game, though it sold well, was full of issues, both small and large. How did they address the Dark Zone griefing issues? How did they address the lack of endgame content in the initial game’s launch? Come listen as we discuss the things we love about this new title and the things we want to see improved.

Bounty Board 028: Hype Train Wreck by Caleb Sawyer

The Hype Train gets us all eventually. We see a game that we didn’t know was coming out. The fresh trailer, the beautiful visuals, the new take on gameplay. In an instant we get drawn into an unshakeable feeling of expectation. Numerous games have exploited this expectation. Drawing fans in for pre-orders, purchases, and DLC down the road. But some games have fallen victim to its power. The first Watch Dogs, a delightfully mediocre game in the first wave of games released on next gen hardware, was panned by critics who seemed to be expecting the second coming.

This week on Bounty Board, the crew dives into whether or not the Hype Train is hurting the industry, forcing studios to come clean on their promises, or turning gamers away altogether. After all, when was the last time you let yourself get hyped for an upcoming title (Anthem and Division 2 for us, shhhh……)?

Bounty Board 027: Video Games Mobilize by Caleb Sawyer

Mobile games are the games that everyone plays but nobody talks about. Nearly everyone has a cellphone, most of the people with a phone have a single game installed. In terms of market saturation, the mobile market is ripe for money making, in incredibly large sums. But there is a culture taboo around mobile games it seems. Most people don’t want to pay 3 or 4 dollars for a game, how then do developers convince them to purchase 10 or 20 dollar games?

This week on Bounty Board, the crew dives into the mobile gaming industry. How can developers appeal to more users? Is there a way to break the cultural conditioning that turns so many people away from mobile software? If games could temporarily block your notifications, would you play more? Join us for a lively discussion!

Welcome to 2019 lovely people! We had a really great 2018. Thank you so much for your support! But now it is time for 2019. We have a lot of big plans this year and we cant wait to get into the good stuff. To start the year out Bounty Board wants to welcome @SergeantSodium as our third co-host. Ryan is a longtime friend of EIC Caleb (@LubWub) and NerdyBitsTV and Bounty Board couldn’t be happier to have him as a permanent part of the team. Let’s get to the show!

This week on Bounty Board the crew tackles what is coming in 2019, and boy is there a lot! Will Anthem live up to its lofty expectations? Is the Division 2 going to learn from the mistakes that its predecessor saw in the days following launch? Will we get a new Watch Dogs? Splinter Cell? The possibilities are nearly endless, and that has the whole crew pumped for 2019!
