Negative World Podcast 076 - Back to the Tarmac

The weather was nice. The planes were fueled up. The British had a new game concept and it was time for Stephen (DrFinkelstein) to get back to the tarmac with Peter (Octorockin) and Joe (Ninsage)!

The climbed into the cabin and took off on a podcast adventure with a primary destination in mind. Up and coming game developer, PlayTonic Games, had recently launched their official Kickstarter for their new game, Yooka-Laylee. Go on over and support it! There's still 31 days left! The trio, excited as ever at the prospect, goes in depth on what this game could mean for them and for the future of the collect-a-thon 3D platformer genre. Before this all, the group has a bit of Now Playing where Octorockin tells us all about Code Name S.T.E.A.M. and DrFinkelstein monkeys-around in Donkey Kong 64, amongst other games.

After the Yooka-Laylee discussion the three celebrate the music works of David Wise and Grant Kirkhope, who happen to be working on the soundtrack for Yooka-Laylee. Each picks a particular favorite track from both composers. It's like a mini-Euphonic episode packed right in!

Finally they wind down with a little banter regarding what remains over at Rare (now a Microsoft 2nd party company). Apparently Rare is poised to showcase something new at E3 2015 and there's a little speculation about it. Be sure to stick through the end of the show to hear DrFinkelstein end it without a script and pretty much confuse the hell out of Ninsage.

The transition music for the main topic comes from Donkey Kong: Tropical Freeze and the theme music... yep you're right... still hasn't changed from Zero's masterpiece.
