Fire Emblem: Three Houses

For the first time this year, The Game Awards kicked off an initiative known as “Player’s Voice”. Over a three-day period this week, fans have been able to vote online on their favorite game of the past year.

Death Stranding, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate made it to the final round. Thanks to fan support, it was Fire Emblem that came out on top.

We’ll be posting the lineup of winners from the known categories later tonight.

Hello, my Norman Reeduses and Freaky Fetuses! This week on NEP, we celebrate Terry Bogard’s debut in Smash with lots of creativity flowing; we muse on ideas for licensed anime games like Food Wars Shokugeki no Soma, Trigun, Sailor Moon… We also kick the show off with some chat about general media—I promise there’s structure to this show. Galen talks his captivation with Luigi’s Mansion 3, Oni Dino is charmed by Destiny Connect, and general banter continues. “C’mon!”

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!

This week, the podcast is sponsored by Koei Tecmo. Check out Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Secret Hideout, out now on Nintendo Switch.
