A new editor's vision and why we changed review scores

Essential listening.

Welcome to the first proper episode of Inside Eurogamer, a new podcast series exclusively for supporters where we, the people who work for Eurogamer, talk about what we do here and the decisions we make.

If you're not a supporter and you're reading this: it's very easy to become one.

Today's is a bumper episode because, well, quite a lot has happened on Eurogamer recently. We appointed a new editor in chief, Tom Phillips, and we changed our review scores from the Essential/Recommended/Avoid badge system to a five-star system instead.
