Sonic the Hedgehog Movie

Hello, my deserted villagers! This week on NEP, we’re covering the big Animal Crossing: New Horizons Nintendo Direct. Oni Dino is reminded of Fyre Fest, while Galen can’t wait to share his place and play online with friends. We also introduce Snack World in our Adventure Log, followed by an impromptu talk about why misrepresentation of marginalized groups in video games is harmful. We ebb and flow between the serious and the absurd on NEP! Plus, we talk about an upcoming, killer JRPG that’s kind of going under the radar: Trials of Mana. Come hang out.

Hello, my beautiful sewer babies! This week on NEP, our big talk is on E3. With Sony gone (for good probably) but Nintendo still attending, Oni Dino and Galen take a look at the burning question: Is E3’s importance waning? There’s a lot of elements at play on both the consumer side and the business side, and we throw our hats into the ring. Plus, we’re talking mixed first impressions on Persona 5 Scrambled Eggs, Fire Emblem: Three Houses wave 4 DLC: Cindered Shadows, the Sonic film’s release (with a shocking mention of Pee Wee Herman) and generally unhealthy mindsets in the gaming community—a discussion sparked by… you guessed it: Pokemon Sword and Shield. Let’s Gaming!
