Bounty Board 052: Bobby and Eric Go Old School by Caleb Sawyer

BountyBoard.jpg

Hey folks! While @LubWub was away at Comic-Con and @sergeantsodium was busy with his newborn, @hybridglass and @Bobbypease held down the fort and took things back for a nostalgic talk about gaming in their younger days. Together they go through each generation of system and talk about their favorite games for each one. From NES to present day.

Join the two oldest (most seasoned? vintage?) members of the #BountyBoard crew as they take you on a trip down their personal memory lanes! Apologies for the late posting. @LubWub left his brain back home…

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!

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!

E3 2019 has wrapped. The conferences are over, the show floor has closed up, everyone is headed home, getting ready for the next big show. Perfect time for the Bounty Board crew to get together and talk about all of the news from this week. And boy is there a lot of stuff that went down.

Tune in as we talk through Microsoft, Bethesda, Devolver (holy shit), PC, Ubisoft, Square Enix, and Nintendo’s E3 conferences, the gameplay shown in the following days, hot takes from the show floor, Dr. Disrespect being disrespectful, and that Avengers footage. There is a ton to talk about this week, and this episode is a long one. So strap in. It’s E3 Wrap Up time!

Bounty Board 011: What Defines the Game of the Year (GOTY)? by Caleb Sawyer

bountyboard-logo.png

Caleb and Eric gather at the microphones to discuss what it is that defines a game worthy of the title Game of the Year. With so many games coming out, how do you pick just one? We discuss what we look for in the GOTY, as well as define what categories we break the award into (i.e. Indie GOTY, Adventure GOTY, Roleplaying GOTY. The list can get tediously long in some places, so how do you keep it brief but spread credit out where credit is due. Stop by and listen as we dig in before gaming season kicks off!
