[Nintendo Everything Podcast] – episode #55 – Game Awards predictions and reactions, Animal Crossing subscription

Posted on November 24, 2019 by (@Oni_Dino) in General Nintendo, Podcast

Hello my happy helpers and fortune cookies! This week on NEP, Oni Dino and Galen are talking The Game Awards, the industry and mobile monetization schemes. We chat about the nominees, snubs, predictions for Nintendo and past instances—new Smash DLC fighter? Metroid? Bayonetta? Who knows! Let’s keep it logical, though.
Then we tackle Animal Crossing Pocket Camp getting a subscription service with a very opinionated argument over if free-to-play games like these should even be considered games. We finish things off with some Pokemon talk on the new designs, and the Gizmodo situation in our listener mail segment.

If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!
