Hello, Team Hare and Team Tortoise! This week on NEP, Galen kicks the show off with his EXCELLENT Banjo (Banjo-Kazooie) impression. That sets the mood for the laughing/crying fit we have right after as we joke about how depressing Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon gets in the late game, including some high-level Final Fantasy lore jokes. We then take a deep dive into Smash 3.0 where Galen gives some thorough impressions and we discuss all of the custom stages Nintendo’s cracking down on; Galen tells his horror story. Afterward, we have some chill Marvel talk because we just got a street date for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3! Then we get serious as we talk rumors from Nikkei about a Switch Mini releasing this autumn, and Oni talks the importance of accurate translations so as not to spread misinformation. And we tidy things up by discussing the growing likelihood of Switch releasing in mainland China, who Tencent is, and international business culture.

We hope you enjoy this episode, because we had a ton of fun recording it! We would appreciate your help in growing the show by sharing the podcast with a friend!

Hello, you beautiful Shy Guys and Shy Girls! This week on NEP, please excuse Oni’s sick voice… BUT! The gang has several great discussions you’ll want to hear. This includes Best Buy leaking games allegedly via their website, which Galen provides some extra insight on, as he used to be a terrible employee back in the day. We then discuss Labo VR and muse over what future ways Labo could be used (Oni freaks over Metroid). We then get a little heavy as we find ourselves talking about the games industry and publishers capitalizing on the social phenomenon of FOMO.
