Welcome to another episode of the Negative World Podcast! We recorded this one just a few days ago and in my dedication to do these episodes as timely and best I can leading up to E3, I edited the dang thing already too! Well sort of,... you see this episode is a part one of two since the actual episode 77 lasted about 4.5 hours long. Yeah... I know... so expect another funky ending as we focus on the front half of our usual show plan and stay tuned for the rest next week.
