Negative World Podcast 097 - A Premise and a Promise

The jolly red man is back! Here's the second episode of tonight's Christmas Eve releases! I'm jolly, wearing red, and I come bearing gifts! Here is the first of two episodes releasing tonight. We recorded this episode earlier this week and it was quite a treat. Paul (Ploot), Dave (BeardedNerd), Joe (Ninsage), and Stephen (DrFinkelstein) put their focus towards the Wii U to have a bit of a retrospective using the framework of 'Four Distinct Questions'.

Nearly twenty games get their due as the gang recants what makes the Wii U a console to remember (or occasionally forget). With the Switch releasing in just a couple of months we pondered if the Wii U will go down in infamy as a remembered gem like the Dreamcast or if it will be deemed more forgettable than that. What games were our favorites? Which games were the black sheeps? Which games did we miss out on? Which games would we urge get played before the Switch releases? This is what drove the conversation, and what a stellar conversation it was.

Super Mario Maker, Nintendo Land, Wii Sports Club, Splatoon, ZombiU, Bayonetta 2, and so much more are discussed inside. Hell, even Funky Barn makes an appearance!

Negative World's site owner and operator, Zero provides the intro and outro. No break music is featured as this was an extended portion of a previous recording where no breaks took place.

Joe (Ninsage) and Stephen (DrFinkelstein) spent an evening with Paul (Ploot) and Dave (BeardedNerd) to see what they've been playing and then take a look back at what games kept their interest on Wii U this past year. That segment was used as a means to lead into the main topic.. which was moved to the next episode due to total podcast length! Lots of great discussion here despite.

The group mainly discusses, DuckTales Remastered, Super Mario Run, and Pokemon Sun.

Happy Thanksgiving to our American listeners and Happy November to everyone else! We've got just the audible treat for those with some free time this weekend! It's episode 95, Mall Lemmings! Inside you'll start with Joe (Ninsage) and Stephen (DrFinkelstein) discussing what they've been playing as of late. Joe just wrapped up Chibi Robo: Zip Lash. Learn how he found a way to enjoy it! Then he describes how he's enjoying the co-op mode in the Wii U hit, Yoshi's Woolly World. Lastly, It was a bit too premature to discuss some Pokemon Sun and Moon but Joe does have quite an intriguing tale to tell regarding his midnight launch for the game.

Afterwards, Stephen divulges more about what draws in him into Paper Mario: Color Splash now that he's really had his time to sink his teeth into it. He's also been playing some Picross 3D Round 2… probably a good thing for a Picross-maniac like him.

The duo discuss some quick My Nintendo woes before taking a quick break. Upon their return, the guys tackle this week's main topic. "Making Time For Gaming In Your Adult Life". How do they manage it? How could they manage it better? Despite their struggles, the guys managed to schedule a full length episode and they hope you enjoy!
