Hello, my wonderful superheroes! This week on NEP, we’ve got exclusives on The Wonderful 101: Remastered coming to Switch, PS4 and Steam via Kickstarter. Oni Dino talks about his meetings with Platinum last year, leak culture and butts in Platinum Games (of course). Galen is still holding out for Wonder Red in Smash Bros. Galen also tells more about Dragon’s Crown Pro experiences, and Oni Dino highlights some of the more bespoke writing in Tokyo Mirage Sessions. And the topic of games-as-a-service rears its head in our listener segment.

Hello, my beautiful animal buddies! This week on NEP, we’ve got a lot of games under our belt: Tokyo Mirage Sessions, Dragon’s Crown Pro, and Byleth impressions from Smash. Then, we fawn over how gorgeous this new Animal Crossing: New Horizons limited edition Switch is. And the big news about Switch outselling the SNES in under 3 years. Has Switch really been this successful? It’s surreal. Also surreal is the details finally releasing on Pokemon HOME. It’s a mixed bag, and most reaction has been less than great. And some more details on Super Nintendo World opening in Universal Studios Japan in Osaka this summer.

Hello, kids and squids! We apologize for the late episode this week, but we’ve got a really great one. This week on NEP, we’re joined by Matt Tesch from Liquid Bit of Killer Queen Black fame. He’s talking with us about their fascinating history on how this small arcade cabinet came to be an online competitive co-op phenomenon. It’s a really inspiring story that we’re excited to share with you. In addition, Galen and Oni Dino cover Nintendo’s controversial lawsuit win against Germany and Norway regarding the inability to cancel eShop pre-orders. Plus, Galen takes any shred of Mega Man Battle Network news he can get.

This week on NEP, we’re covering the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct and the collective meltdown over the professor. Plus more Star Ocean talk, Killer Queen Black, and the new indie cutie, Super Crush KO. Plus, listener response to Galen’s “Pokemon is games-as-a-service” claim.

We’re back in the saddle with the first regular episode of 2020! This week on NEP, we’re covering the big Pokémon Sword and Shield Direct, the negative response, and trying to make sense of something when we don’t really have a dog in the fight. We also accidentally talk about Star Trek and Star Wars a bit, too? Why? Oni Dino probably has the worst take you’ve ever heard involving Pokémon and Star Wars. But also the “Great Oni Dino x Galen Argument of 2020” has already begun with the incendiary question: is Pokémon now a games-as-a-service game? We’re on opposite sides of the ring, ready to duke it out.

Happy New Year! Start off the decade on the right foot by joining Oni Dino and Galen as we predict Nintendo’s 2020! We’ve got a game with around 20 questions about Nintendo’s future and predict the outcomes. Who will be the victor? Also, there seems to be a Nintendo Direct around the corner. We want certain Smash characters as DLC and we have great, realistic arguments for why they really could be future characters. Plus, Wii U ports that make sense. And a healthy dose of Fire Emblem: Three Houses talk.

It’s the last episode of NEP of the decade! Join Oni Dino and Galen as they give their personal awards across the nightmare-scape that is gaming in 2019. Biggest surprise, biggest embarrassment/controversy, best new character, and so much more. The gang employs a process of elimination that requires bargains, arguments, concessions and a whole lot of passive aggressive love. What will win? How will we compromise? Who won’t make it out alive?

Hello my coffee-flavored Gooigis. This week on NEP, we’re looking back on our predictions of 2019 and seeing what we got right, wrong, and what was totally unexpected. Luigi’s Mansion 3, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Pokemon Sword and Shield and more–it’s funny how much our perspectives changed in under one year.

Hello my beautiful indie darlings. This week on NEP, join Oni Dino and Karen on some big topics! We’re talking The Game Awards: is it really a good celebration of video games? Is it really the biggest night in gaming? We also discuss the Nindie Showcase from earlier this week (including weighing in on the Gleamlight backlash)—Reggie says it best: indies are the most important in the industry! We also chat Resident Evil 3 Remake, and Oni Dino has tips for the newly released, unconventional JRPG, SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions.

Hello my 8-bit and 16-bit beauties. This week on NEP, we accidentally pitch our ideas for the next Luigi’s Mansion game (and the next) in a fervor of excitement. Then, Oni Dino is excited about Heroland while Galen critiques Bioware’s Anthem. Oni Dino goes on to talk his love for Breath of Fire II and Galen muses on the “Zelda II Maker” update we received in Super Mario Maker 2, and what Maker could be next. We then read some listener mail leading into next week’s The Game Awards, a New Year Nintendo Direct and Super Mario Sunshine… 2?
