  • Hello, my spookies and cuties! This week on NEP, we have a special guest: Jonas Kaerlev of Gears For Breakfast, creators of A Hat In Time. Oni Dino and Galen chat with him about love for 3D platformers, game design philosophies, and a ton of underrated gems spanning across genres in gaming. In particular Jonas shares how they used their own branch of Unreal 3 on Switch, the necessity of trying new things in game development, and how they overcame Switch’s limitations and created an amazing experience without any big compromises.

    We then cover Doom Eternal’s delay news and all the new details we’ve yet to discuss with Luigi’s Mansion 3. Gooigi is still gross. Partner mechanic should’ve been Daisy. We stand by that.

    If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

    03:19 – A chat with the creator of “A Hat In Time”: Jonas! Founder, director, designer, writer, programmer! 41:33 – News: Galarian Ponyta is an icon, a legend, and she is the moment. Exclusive to Pokemon Shield. Galen talks about the competitive play aspect, and Oni Dino accidently offends an entire fandom... 47:21 – Doom Eternal delayed on all platforms. Switch version coming later than others. Doom 64 as a pre-order bonus on all platforms. Industry crunch and the surprising move that Bethesda made. Also, what is a “port” exactly? 59:06 – Luigi’s Mansion 3 discussion! New gameplay, new trailers. Animations and art direction discussion; Canadian developers, Next Level Games, are knocking it out of the park. And a few concerns! And Gooigi is gross, it should’ve been Daisy. And inevitable talk about how much we love Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door. 1:11:50 – Additional DLC (and Oni Dino offends another group of people) 1:18:59 – Listener mail: (Oni Dino accidentally offends our entire listener-base)

  • Hello, my major and minor league gym leaders! This week on NEP, we’re going over all the new Pokemon details—including the controversies... We also break down the AlphaDream bankruptcy story, and Oni Dino has dug through some Japanese language reports and is bringing that straight to your ears. We also muse on our ideas for Nintendo skins for Overwatch characters, thanks to some lovely listener mail.

    07:40 – Adventure Log: Super Kirby Crush, Borderlands 3, Untitled Goose Game 36:06 – Pokemon Sword Shield news, changes, updates, controversy... Can this game ever escape it? Game Informer releases info but then Pokemon Company backtracks on it. 18 gyms? 16? Only 8? Masuda also teases new systems for Sword Shield that they haven’t revealed yet. Helps to remove tedium? And Zamazenta and Zacian names finally make sense, but Galen and Oni Dino are still not impressed. They sound like Kingdom Hearts villains. 1:05:03 – Big story: Mario & Luigi RPG series developers, AlphaDream, have filed for bankruptcy. What does this mean? Why didn’t Nintendo bail them out? We talk fan reactions, misconceptions and the business side of things. And of course we bowtie the discussion with a reminder of Oni Dino’s idea for a brand new Mario RPG series with a job system. It’s such a good idea! 1:19:28 – Additional DLC 1:24:12 – Listener mail: Nintendo skins in Overwatch! Who should be whom?

  • Hello, my geese and goslings! This week on NEP we’ve got some controversial and complex talking points: Hero being banned then unbanned in official Nintendo France tournaments (and what constitutes an OP character or a ban), Mario Kart Tour and the success and failure of mobile games and how that affects genuine gaming, and the Switch Lite launching on the market. We then get some great listener mail sent to us and we blather on there, too, because complex issues require complex analysis.

  • Hello, my Chocobos and Cactuars! This week on NEP, we’ve got the simultaneous worst and best episode yet! We’ve got Jared of Avalanche Reviews guesting in, but Galen’s mic crapped out once or twice, so his commentary is a little light in a few spots.

    But Jared is here to get super nerdy with us about upscaling output video on retro consoles, as all three of us bond over Resident Evil and the best boys of YouTube. In particular, Jared talks about getting the best picture possible out of the SNES, N64 and GCN consoles; the Framemeister; and technical nonsense of video and retro graphics explained in easy-to-understand detail.

    03:13 – Jared of Avalanche Reviews talks starting out on YouTube, how he grew his channel, what was the spark to start the Resident Evil Retrospective and his success story. Then we all bond over Resident Evil! 21:13 – Jared teaches us about upscaling video output on our old consoles, like the SNES, N64 and Gamecube. 36:42 – The struggles of being a YouTuber, streaming on twitch VS YouTube, and the algorithm gods. 52:28 – Astral Chain launches next week! Let’s talk impressions and thoughts with all the gameplay footage we’re getting out of Gamescom. Jared freaks out that Galen can go to a brick and mortar to rent games in 2019. Japanese game development over the years. 1:01:13 – The Witcher 3 aka the Switcher. And Jared dukes it out with the Switch. Getting over pride, admitting when you’re wrong, and taking opportunities to learn. 1:16:28 – Final Fantasy VIII Remaster. What QOL additions will we see? How the visuals stack up to a video output nerd like Jared. Also, using video games in Japanese as a means of learning written language. Oni’s beef with text and text boxes. 1:29:21 – Remothered sequel happening, and friendship forms through coincidental YouTube viewings, and mutual love for Thor High Heels. 1:32:24 – Indie World! Ori and the Blind Forest, Hotline Miami Collection, Superhot, so much more. And a lovely mention of Suda51 and how hit or miss he is, but we love creativity. More creative, crazy developers, please. Also, less of Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers. Superhot discussion leads into Labo VR talk, badly received games like Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. Then why being objective about media is important, and admitting when things aren’t for you/your demographic though it may be for other people. 1:57:01 – Additional DLC, Destiny lore, SNES Drunk, Super Derek and trading games through the mail.

  • Hello, my beautiful bubbles and bobbles. This week on NEP, we’re gushing about Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Oni tries (and fails) to not talk about FE3H the entire episode, while Galen picks arbitrary battles as he defends Cooking Mama. Oni also gives some first impressions with the Grandia HD Collection, and the gang discusses all the game announcements and details we got this week! Could a Nintendo Direct be coming next month?
    We finish things off by chatting about games with sequels where one was exponentially better than the other. Both Galen and Oni dive into their pasts to pull up some sore memories of their favorite games...

    04:23 – Adventure Log: Grandia HD Collection (Grandia II), and Fire Emblem: Three Houses! 32:48 – Quick-fire weekly game announcements and details: Game Freak trademarks “Little Town Hero”. Announcement sometime soon? Maybe September direct? Shantae 5 is now Shantae and the Seven Sirens, plus screenshots. Gears For Breakfast announce A Hat in Time coming to Switch in October! Doraemon Story of Seasons coming October, too. Oni didn’t think this would ever get localized. And then Cooking Mama! Who thought about that one?! Let’s discuss the appeal of this game. And Galen gets argumentative for no reason! Then out of nowhere: Bubble Bobble 4 Friends. This is exciting! Coming to EU very soon, but USA much later- why is that? Let’s discuss logically. 1:01:22 – SNES games sound like they’re coming to Nintendo Switch Online sometime soon. A wireless SNES controller was filed with the FCC recently. 1:06:22 – iQue is transitioning to game development. What does this mean for Nintendo in China? Is this a good growth opportunity for the near future with the Switch’s imminent release in mainland China? 1:11:21 – Additional DLC 1:18:41 – Listener Mail: divisive entries in a game series

  • Hello, my beautiful poison and fairy types. This week on NEP, we have a special guest—three in fact! Jay, James and Julian from Massive Monster join us to talk about their upcoming challenging action-platformer for Nintendo Switch, “Never Give Up”. The devs reveal a lot about their upcoming game including a few secrets, how Egoraptor / Arin Hanson is involved, and their origins as developers that led up to this point.

    The trio then sticks around to chat with us about new Pokemon details and lootboxes in gaming, with Nintendo making a statement recently about introducing new rules for transparency. We all get on and have a great chat, and we’re particularly grateful for Massive Monster’s insight on these topics as developers.

  • Hello my beautiful Black Eagles, Blue Lions and Golden Deer! In this episode of NEP, we put on the boxing gloves and discuss microtransactions in gaming, why Fire Emblem: Three Houses is so damn good, and the wild mechanics with Dragon Quest Hero as he debuts in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! We also have a chat about the new additions to Nintendo Switch Online and if they save the service or not, Ubisoft’s Chinese Rabbids game and the meager announcements from Nintendo and Tencent at ChinaJoy. Finally in our Listener Mail segment, we recommend JRPGs and give our brutally honest feelings about the Final Fantasy series and Kingdom Hearts series.
    We hope you enjoy!

Galen has an idea for an incredible peripheral for new gaming experiences using old games on the Switch... it’s so crazy, Nintendo would toootally do it! 1:06:39 – Tencent and Nintendo hold a press conference at ChinaJoy to announce... almost nothing. Eh. Whattaya expect. Switch will release in China at some point. Then info that Ubisoft is making a Chinese Rabbids game, “Fengkuang Tuzi: Qiyu Paidui” aka “Crazy Bunnies: Adventure Party”.

  • Hello my lovely left and right Joy-con! Are you stable or are you drifting? In this NEP, we talk logical about the hardware problems that are on the tip of everyone’s tongues to kick things off. We then hit you with fast paced news and some unintentionally analytical chats about games reviews and journalism. Then we cover Pokemon Masters, but we’re both kinda burnt out on Pokemon mobile efforts... But we have plenty of energy as we chew through all our lovely listener mails and tell the abridged story of when Oni met Galen. We hope you enjoy!

Burn out on Pokemon mobile games. And Oni can’t help but mention another idea what would’ve improved or impressed him with Sword and Shield. Team Break, tho! 1:07:35 – Additional DLC 1:12:31 – Three Listener Mail! The story of how Oni and Galen met, friendship as kids, and dealing with separation and life crises.

  • Hello my beautiful Popos and Nanas! Oni and Galen have a great discussion overall, in our most intimate episode of NEP yet. We talk localization and well-written characters in fiction, the pros and cons of the Switch Lite (and what this could mean for a future “Pro” variant), Dr. Mario and how different in design it is, and we tie things up with a discussion of Fire Emblem and LGBTQ+ representation in media and video games. We hope you enjoy.

    06:05 – Adventure Log: Hollow Knight, Final Fantasy VII and localization discussion. And a chat about the merit of replaying games and empathizing with well-written characters in fiction. 28:36 – Nintendo Switch Lite and public reaction. Galen thinks this should’ve been announced at E3 and Oni explains why he thinks it was a smart move not to announce at E3. How is the marketing for Switch going to proceed now that we have a dedicated handheld? Will the eventual “Pro” be a dedicated household console? Galen thinks it’ll be something that focuses on tabletop mode. Oni has big disagrees and speculates what Nintendo could do to bridge the looming gap of games being made for next-gen hardware with the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett on the horizon. 49:35 – Dr. Mario World and how not Dr. Mario it is. Galen explains. 56:50 – Fire Emblem: Three Houses. New details on giant beasts, online features, same-sex relationships, and more. Serious and emotionally intimate talk about LGBTQ representation in video games and how we talk to each other online. Also a brief discussion of how Nintendo has handled LGBTQ inclusion on a few occasions, both positively and negatively. 1:25:46 – Brief Pokemon talk. New gym leaders, new Pokemon, Gigantamaxing, Dynamaxing—we’ll be talking more about it next week, too! 1:27:27 – Additional DLC 1:33:42 – Listener Mail: Something’s gotta give—what our personal state of play is currently and coming up this year end.

  • Hello my beautiful Mario and Luigi makers! Super Mario Maker 2 is out this week so let’s chat! Takashi Tezuka has given us some pearls of info to muse on. Galen and Oni have a running argument on autorunner levels. The gang also discusses what Nintendo does with the future of Mario 2D side-scroller platformers as stand alone titles. Oni thinks they need to go a totally new direction, and he has THE BEST ideas. Nintendo, please check these out. They’re free. Oni and Galen have basically acted as creative producer on this and workshopped ‘em.

    Oni and Galen then blab on about some new info on an upgraded Switch model, and consider things not only from a consumer standpoint, but from a developer’s burden point of view, as well. We muse on the big questions like, “Is the inevitable Switch model going to be a small bump or a huge leap so it can at least hold its own against the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett?” Galen brings up marketing and aiming at different markets, while Oni fights back with discussions of the slippery slope effect that the Switch could lose 3rd party support.

  • Hello my beautiful Banjos and Kazooies! This week is post E3, and we have so much to talk about, it’s not even fair to our monthly data cap! Oni talks first-hand experiences on the Show Floor and discusses the entirety of the Nintendo E3 Direct and then some with Galen!

    Part way through the episode, Galen suddenly had a swig of idiot juice and started being wrong about everything, but Oni keeps him on track as he recalls Eiji Aonuma’s old plans for new gameplay in Breath of the Wild. The gang may have figured out how the sequel is gonna go! Or at least they’d like to think they have...

    To celebrate E3, we’re doing double content all month long! Mostly. We hope you’re enjoying! The best way to support our show is to recommend the podcast to others, and rate us 5 stars on iTunes! We really appreciate all the support you’ve given us throughout the show.

    Thank you so much for listening!

Nintendo won’t fool us into buying amiibo! 33:13 – Super Mario Maker 2 won’t let you play with friends online- only random players. Galen and Oni offer solutions to Nintendo’s problem, and suggestions for fans to take action! Also accidental discussion of omega labyrinth life and social issues in Japanese culture and real life. Also general discussion of more fleshed out features we learned recently, such as no amiibo support. Nintendo Online Voucher discussion, too. Backwards way of doing things? Y/N? Oni and Galen are also curious if this kind of deal is worth it in your country with the way sales and pricing work. Write in to our email below and let us know. General discussion of how Nintendo games hold their value and don’t go on sale often. 1:02:12 – Cadence of Hyrule releasing in June. E3 shadowdrop? Also, Harvest Moon Mad Dash announced for Switch. Oni going hands-on at E3. 1:04:37 – Pokemon Press Conference! It was actually really exciting. Let’s talk the potential of what they announced: Pokemon full force into China, full force into films, Pokemon Center Tokyo in Shibuya. Galen and Oni reveal they’re going to Tokyo later this fall. Stay tuned for antics. Pokemon Home has us very excited for different reasons, and Pokemon Sleep is smart marketing. And Pokemon Shirts, for the working pikachus. 1:42:50 – Additional DLC and movie talk. Cinema-going experience is awful. 1:49:54 – Listener Mail: phrases we live by.
