BGB Podcast #20 – Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

BGB listener Michael is definitely not a daft punk, because he suggested this week’s topic, about games that replace other games. That’s right, it’s another countdown episode!

Every so often you play a game that does everything another one does, but maybe just a little bit better. Well, you could keep them both, but who has the space? Yeah, every game has its time and place, but it doesn’t have to be your time and place. Before we replace our collection, we talk about Chimera Station.

    Why is the volume of the intro 10x louder than the episode? Not a cool way to start it off.

      Hey there, thanks for the feedback! While we feel pretty strongly about starting the intro off with, well, a barrage, we do try to keep the relative volumes as consistent as possible. We might have missed the mark for episode 20, but rest assured we do keep it in mind!
