SaGa Scarlet Grace Ambitions

Hello my coffee-flavored Gooigis. This week on NEP, we’re looking back on our predictions of 2019 and seeing what we got right, wrong, and what was totally unexpected. Luigi’s Mansion 3, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Pokemon Sword and Shield and more–it’s funny how much our perspectives changed in under one year.

Hello my beautiful indie darlings. This week on NEP, join Oni Dino and Karen on some big topics! We’re talking The Game Awards: is it really a good celebration of video games? Is it really the biggest night in gaming? We also discuss the Nindie Showcase from earlier this week (including weighing in on the Gleamlight backlash)—Reggie says it best: indies are the most important in the industry! We also chat Resident Evil 3 Remake, and Oni Dino has tips for the newly released, unconventional JRPG, SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions.
