Episode 6: O Revenant, Where Art Thou?

This week, Alakazooom and Mutedinlife break down the effects of the 42.3 patch.  Kwang is still unkillable, Wraith is still bad, and Gideon isn't any better either (told you so).  We talk a little bit about how the meta is/isn't changing, which heroes and cards we think you should be playing, and what changes we suggest to bring certain heroes and cards into a more balanced state.  Alakazooom talks about Super Smash Bros., and we give a moment of silence for the death of Revenant.  All this, and more, in this week's episode!Alakazooom was travelling for most of the past week, so this episode is a little bit less organized than usual.  Now that he is in his new place, our audio recording setup is a bit different, so please bear with us as we try to perfect the new system.

Episode 4: What makes a game good?

This week, Alakazooom and Mutedinlife talk about what makes a game good, what we mean when we talk about "balance", and how this all relates to Paragon.  Based off this video by cursedlemon (video has strong language), Alakazooom gives some insight about what exactly we are talking about when we talk about a game's "balance."  We discuss snowballing, the optimization of settings, skill, and beauty.  Then, we talk about how this relates to our experiences on the fields of Agora.  This podcast has it all: Trips to St. Louis, arguing on reddit, Halo, hockey, and, of course, Paragon!If you enjoyed the show, or if you critiques, questions, or ideas for future shows (or if you just want to say hello), please email us at CrashBangBoomThePodcast@gmail.com.  Please follow us on twitter @CrashBangBoomPC for updates on new episodes and all things Crash Bang Boom!  If you like what you heard, subscribe to us on iTunes, follow us on Podbean at crashbangboom.podbean.com, and consider leaving us an iTunes review.

Episode 14: A Wild Whisp Appears!

Alakazooom is dying of the Plague, so our friend Whisp joins us to talk about the aftermath of the v44 patch.  We give our opinions of the UI and what we like and dislike about it.  After offering some opinions on how we would change the UI and what we would keep the same, we talk about the hero reworks and general balance of the patch.  In particular, we talk about Gideon, his ult, and the need for real cleanse cards.  Sorry about releasing this episode late, Alakazooom has been sick and editing has been a struggle.If you like what you heard, or have suggestions for future topics or for how to improve the podcast?  We would love to hear from you!  Send us an email at CrashBangBoomThePodcast@gmail.com, tweet at us @CrashBangBoomPC, or write us a review on iTunes!  If you want to stay current with the podcast and hear about new episodes as soon as they are released, follow us on twitter, subscribe to us on iTunes, or follow us at crashbangboom.podbean.com.  Thanks for your support!
