Negative World Podcast 088 - Like A Hylian Skip-It

Huzzah! It's E3 week once again on good ol' Planet Earth! All the key gaming companies are showing off their latest and greatest and we're here to discuss it! On this very special E3-edition of the show Joe (Ninsage) and Stephen (DrFinkelstein) are joined by Chris (Chrisbg99) and Lou (TheOldManFromZelda)!

The show is broken up in a few different chunks. First up, as Nintendo did in their E3 Treehouse presentation yesterday, we lead off with a brief mention of the latest we saw from Pokemon Sun & Moon. Then we climb our way into a much meatier helping of discussion with the elephant in the room… The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild! It feels so good to have some kind of footing of the direction in Aonuma's latest Zelda game for the Wii U and NX.

After an intermission break with some The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword music, we jump back in for more content. After the break we start things off by discussing the new amiibo that Nintendo revealed this week. Then we briefly mention some other things Nintendo had announced yesterday. If only we recorded this tonight and not last night… so much info released today even! Check out the website for more info there. This portion of the discussion tapped us out on Nintendo news so we switched over to some 'Nontendo' news and catch up with the cool things Microsoft and Sony are up to as well. It's a good time to be a gamer and it's a good time to listen to the podcast!

Negative World Euphonic 007 - Sports & Pokemon

Tag team, back again… with another Negative World Euphonic!

This episode focuses on completely different and unique themes which really have no relation. First up we have Sports. Various sports have seen their day in the gaming sun and we've got a mix of seven wonderful tracks (perhaps even an eighth) which showcase some of the best Sports-music Nintendo systems have ever seen. After that we dabble into quite a huge backlog of games with the Pokemon series. We had a ton of submissions for this and what we learned was that when it comes to using a franchise as a theme, there's a good chance you'll be able to do it more than once. Maybe someday we'll see a Pokemon Part II for a theme but for now Joe and Stephen explore music with a particular reference to how grown up the music has gotten over the series iterations.

After all is said and heard we finish it off with a final bonus track which was chosen by someone who regulars over at Joe's forum, If you haven't yet, perhaps go check it out and enjoy even more gaming discussion goodness. The song chosen for the closing of the show happens to be a good one for browsing the web to anyway.

What do you think of the songs picked for this episode? How do you feel when listening to these tracks? What moves you? What doesn't? Let us know!

Negative World Podcast 087 - The Answer To Everything Is Pizza

Grab a slice, cause it's time for another episode of the Negative World Podcast! This time 'round, Joe (Ninsage) and Stephen (DrFinkelstein) are treated with a visit from Grant (GameDadGrant) to discuss Nintendo!

To start things off the gang discusses Mop It Up's Nintendo Systems Survivor Poll at about it's midpoint. Then there's a brief mention of Tadpole Treble news. Finally there's a rousing Now Playing segment featuring discussions on Project X Zone 2, Final Fantasy Explorers, Bravely Second, Xenoblade Chronicles X, and SteamWorld Heist.

After the intermission we get into the primary topics, starting with Miitomo. They dive deep into their experiences and the hits and misses of Nintendo's first true app. This leads into discussion about the future of Nintendo Apps. The topic shifts into recent Pokemon Sun & Moon news before some discussion about Nintendo's secretive nature leading up to E3 and the gang speculates on the future of Nintendo and gaming in general.

The break music selection is a couple of delightful tracks from Project X Zone 2 and Miitomo. Negative World's site owner and operator, Zero provides the intro and outro.

Keep an eye out for future episodes! I hope you're also enjoying the Euphonic Podcasts. Another is releasing shortly and there will be a casting call soon for a very special competition-based Euphonic! Stay tuned!
