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. We finish things off with talking about Epic Games purchasing Psyonix, creators of Rocket League, and general discussions of the Epic Store and what the controversy is there. Oni learned something, so we hope you do, too! Galen then has an existential crisis for good measure as we go over our listener mail!

Psyonix has announced that is is joining the Epic Games family. In other words, the developer has been purchased.

Rocket League has just gained full cross-play support. The game has entered the PlayStation Cross-Play Beta program, meaning that if you’re a Switch user, you can have a match against those on the PlayStation 4. Of course, the feature is still in effect for Xbox One and Steam players as well.

Cross-platform parties are also still coming, and the system is expected to go live as part of the first update of 2019. This will enable players “to partner up with friends on any platform with the push of a few buttons.”
