Keep and Kill Press Start to BGN Show Recap 05/04/2018

Hey! Listen!

Welcome back to Press Start to BGN, this week on the show we talked about which Pokémon would be our dream starter and if we could choose a game franchise to continuously have games being made which game franchise that we like can no longer go on? If you are a first time listener/reader Press Start to BGN is Laurier’s gaming show by a bunch of Game Design & Development students here at Laurier’s Brantford campus. The program is very new and so is our show, so for those who don’t know Game Design & Development is headed by Dr Scott Nicholson through the Brantford Games Network or BGN, hence the name “Press Start to BGN” which sounds like “begin.” Thanks for tuning in!
