Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020

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.

Thank you for listening! Please help the show grow by sharing the podcast with someone you think might enjoy.
