BGB Podcast #63 – Hype Men

Get hype.

The train’s pulling into the station and you’ve got a ticket, because this week we’re talking all about hype. Why do we get irrationally excited about games we know nothing about? How much should we listen to our overly excited inner selves? Before it’s all aboard, we also talk about Reykholt, PUSH, and Great Western Trail.
