Negative World Podcast 090 - The Cheeseburger Censorship

Welcome to another episode of The Negative World Podcast! This time Joe (Ninsage) and Stephen (DrFinkelstein) go it alone without a guest and for that, the show is a little shorter than normal. Well, the format is a little different too.

Joe and Stephen start off with some banter around the new Nintendo NES Classic Edition. Then they discuss Japan's new Kirby Cafes. They wrap things up with a mention of the new amiibo functionality coming to Animal Crossing: New Leaf as well as a bit of banter on the notion of retroactively adding amiibo functionality to games.

Once the break hits you'll find familiar music if you like to catch em' all… Joe and Stephen take time to dissect their experiences with Pokemon GO, Niantic and The Pokemon Company's new phone app. Both gentlemen have had ample time with it and discuss the social aspect they've faced as well as the glitches they've encountered. As someone who walked three miles tonight in hopes of catching a Psyduck, it seems the Pokemon GO hype is not GOing anywhere.

Negative World's site owner and operator, Zero provides the intro and outro. The 'break' music is a key track from Pokemon GO.

Negative World Podcast 089 - Mighty No. 89

With E3 firmly in the past now those frequent knuckleheads, Joe (Ninsage) and Stephen (DrFinkelstein) are joined by Dave (BeardedNerd)!

The guys start by recalling what they've been up to. It's a unique mix of games this time with the newly released Mighty No. 9 and Shantae and the Pirate's Curse are discussed. Dave specifically mentions his play through of Star Fox Command and his experience with two versions of TMNT: Tournament Fighters. Joe's been attempting a Nuzlocke Challenge in his copy of Pokemon Blue and it's interesting to hear how that's going.

Afterwards we have a What Do You Fink segment inquiring about Splatoon and the NX before moving to the meat and potatoes of this episode. In the main topic the guys discuss Mr. Shigeru Miyamoto and his role with the company now. How is it affecting Nintendo? How were things back in the old days and how will things be going forward? Does the average gamer actually have the right to be tired of his efforts? This and more is found inside! Give it a listen!

Negative World Euphonic: The Bulby/Trivia Special

Fans and listeners new and old, welcome and hello! We have an exciting episode for you today on this American-holiday weekend. We present to you the Bulby/Trivia Special edition of the Negative World Euphonic!

This over-three-hour-long episode of the Euphonic podcast has a very special theme with a very special premise. Bulby is a man who spends a lot of his time involved with his passions for 8-bit sounds and video game music. Just check out his YouTube page. He frequently uploads new videos which showcase this man's talents. Typically he creates 8-bit renditions of non-8-bit video game tracks and has a particular fondness of Nintendo. With his blessing we wanted to showcase some of his work and celebrate what he has done. The idea evolved over time into one of a Trivia special.

In this episode you'll find Tim (ShadowLink), Matthew (TriforceBun), and Grant (GameDadGrant) as three contestants joining Joe (Ninsage) and Stephen (DrFinkelstein) as we explore Bulby's expansive catalog of music. The gimmick? No, it's not motion controls, but instead after the contestants try to figure out what song is being remixed, the person who got the correct answer fast enough had a shot at a trivia question related to the game/song/franchise. It was a lot of fun and now you have a chance to hear it! We even had some special guests show up like a certain 'spy', 'bird', and 'professor'. It was a revolving door of special guest appearances!

We explore songs from most of Nintendo's consoles and handhelds and the trivia is a unique mix. How well do you fare? Feel free to keep score for yourself as we'll explain and answer every single trivia question in the show. Can you beat Tim, Matthew, or Grant? Download, listen, enjoy, and find out. Then go visit Bulby over at his various webpages and support this guy would ya? At the very least, spread the word. This music deserves to be heard!

You should also consider checking out his new video series, Original Sound Theory. The first episode just released a couple of days ago and it was incredibly interesting. It's about Mario Kart 8's soundtrack and it's well worth the click and view.

You can comment on the music, the show, etc. on Negative World, Facebook or, Twitter.

Enjoy the show! (Also, note that any music contained within this show is a property of Bulby the artist or of Nintendo. The only non-Bulby track contained is our half-way break interlude which features a beloved turtle you may know from a special Nintendo franchise.
