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!

As ever, we would appreciate your help in growing the show by sharing the podcast with a friend and rating us on your listening platform of choice, such as iTunes! Thanks for listening!

Oni loves the trailer’s humor and Galen hasn’t properly prepared for the podcast. Also, why’s it coming one week later to the Switch? So strange.
