They gang got together this week to do something a little different than usual. For the first time we are dedicating a whole episode to our Bounties, something we plan to do once a month. We wanted to give you, our dear listeners, a better look at the games we enjoyed from the previous month and what we are looking forward to in the next month. The show is called Bounty Board, after all. Why not dedicate more time to telling you what we loved recently?

Tune in this week to hear about Outer Wilds, Apex, Rocket League, Destiny, Mini Metro, Rebel Inc., and many more, as the crew lets you know what’s up! @sergeantsodium is adapting to fatherhood, @LubWub doesn’t know what a day off is, @hybridglass can’t stop talking about his celery purge, and @Bobbypease had a Birthday! Much Excite!

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

BountyBoard.jpg

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

BountyBoard.jpg

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 044: Do Exclusives Really Define a Console? by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoard.jpg

Hey friends! The Bounty Board is back this again! This week the Crew dives into whether or not console exclusives define the console. There is no question in the world that Sony’s PS4 has dominated the console market in total sales, both in hardware and in exclusive software. But is that the thing that will be talked about as the next generation approaches? Xbox has been on a meteoric rise in the last two years, due largely to their successful introduction of the Xbox Game Pass service.

The debate is lively in this one. Are PlayStation’s exclusives the reason they won the “console war”. Is it at all possible that Xbox’s poor launch impacted the race more? What happened to Halo and Gears of War. the Xbox flagship titles have been largely quiet this generation. The crew is in rare form this week, so dive in and get ready for @hybridglass’s coffee to “slide into your BMs.”

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.
