What’s up, hedgehogs and werehogs! That’s right, it’s time to talk about Sonic… but first we kick things off with info on our giveaway for Hob: The Definitive Edition on Nintendo Switch!

In this episode of NEP, we dish out our opinions on the first trailer for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, and the director’s response that it’s going to be fixed in such a short amount of time. This leads us to talk about industry crunch, along with CG artists’ and 3D animators’ responses to this situation. We then talk all the weekly news, including Forza Street, Bloodstained and more.
