Easily the longest episode in quite a while (or ever?), we've got nearly three hours of Nintendo gaming goodness coming at you literally the day after it was recorded! "Say what!?"

Stephen (DrFinkelstein) and Joe (Ninsage) enjoy the company of newcomer Tim (Shadowlink), from all the way on the other side of the Earth! We're also joined by our friend Hendrik (Jargon) who hasn't been on the Negative World Podcast since 2011... on episode 13! We've literally multiplied our episode-count over four times that since! It's about time he made a return and we're glad for it!

The guys start with a well-rounded 'Now Playing' featuring tons of games. You'll hear about, Advance Wars, NES Remix 2, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Wii Party U, various games in the Tenchu series, the brand-spankin' new Mario Golf: World Tour, and finally Mario & Luigi: Dream Team!

This is followed by a new 'What Do You Fink?' installment per Hendrik's request! They gang tackles three varied and curious questions with ease! This leads us into chatter about the Negative World March Madness Bracket. Hendrik tells us all about the idea and we discuss the results.

Finally with about an hour left we dive kart-first into discussion about the latest Nintendo Direct from last week, which focused heavily on Mario Kart 8!! We break down the whole direct, piece by piece, as we enter these last four weeks before the game releases May 30th.

The break music is pulled right from the Nintendo Direct and provides a delightful look into the new live-recorded music to be featured in the game. Zero's theme music makes an appearance for the billionth time now. ;) Overall the episode is dedicated to the late Bob Hoskins, Hollywood's Mario (amongst many other roles) and despite his lack of appearance in this episode, the title features the winner of last episode's Music Game, chrisbg99. Thanks for your patience on the reveal since we didn't want to spoil it before people could listen to it.

hmm, well, in lighter and possibly related news I also heard all cool people are named Andy!! ... no idea where I picked that up though.

Somewhere ridiculous no doubt. I know lots of cool people who aren't named Andy. And people named Andy that aren't cool.
