What’s up friends! The Bounty Board crew is back this week with another episode of your favorite gaming podcast! Eric took the week off to help get his kids ready for their first day of school, so this week Caleb, Ryan, and Ben got together to talk about the upcoming fall season of games. Speaking of Ben, NerdyBits has a special announcement, hot off the presses!

Ben is our new permanent host!

We said farewell to Bobby last week and when Ben came on as a guest, the chemistry was immediate. The new crew of Bounty Board has played games together for a full decade! Please welcome Ben into the fold. We are extremely excited to have him!

Join us this week as we talk about the crazy list of games scheduled for release this fall, and as we gauge our excitement for each one. Folks, there is a lot coming out in the next three months. Prepare yourself!

Bounty Board 050: Couch Co-op vs. Online Multiplayer by Caleb Sawyer

Happy Birthday America! While everyone is recovering from ringing ears and freedom beer hangovers, join your favorite nerds as they talk about gathering around the TV with a bunch of friends and blowing other shit up. Couch co-op, sitting next to people for you co-op gaming, was nearly a thing of the past. The Xbox One and PS4, while more powerful systems, didn’t quite continue the legacy of couch co-op games, and instead leaned into playing games online.

In this week’s Bounty Board, the crew sit down and talk about why this transition took place, how it came to be, and whether they think that couch co-op is making a return or if it is dead. To spice things up, Eric brought his couch co-op partner Matt, on the show to join us. Matt and Eric have been going to each other’s house to play games, reigniting the passion for shared gaming experiences.

The guys talk about a lot tonight. They reminisce on Halo: CE and Halo 2, and the global phenomena those games were. They discuss the rise of online gaming and how the introduction of broadband changed the space forever. They talk about Call of Duty, and the wave of PvP game types that became available as a result of dividing the community into their own homes. It is an interesting episode Folks!

Bounty Board 049: The Year So Far by Caleb Sawyer

Eric has returned from vacation and the crew is whole once more! With E3 in the rearview and the slow season officially kicked off, the Bounty Board crew decided to take a step back and reflect on the good stuff they have encountered this year.

We talk about our top three games so far this year, why we like them, and why you should give them a shot. Then, for the fall, we give you our Most Anticipated, Sleeper Hit, and Surprise Hit (the one that we are surprised we are interested in).

We’ve got The Fall on the horizon folks. It’s time to dust off that collection of unfinished games and blow up the backlog. And while you are doing that, come hang out with ya boys!

Bounty Board 010: The Fall (Release Schedule) of Games by Caleb Sawyer

Caleb and Eric gather at the microphones to discuss the overloaded fall release schedule of games. There are 16 larger titles due to release in October alone! When you start counting smaller titles, the number quickly becomes absurd. Is this over-saturation of titles hurting the industry? Would it behoove game makers to spread the wealth and allow the consumers time to save between blockbuster releases? Listen in as we debate about managing our income just to get the things we want this fall!
