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, Nintemple.com. 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!
...maybe! If nothing else, at least then you'll know for sure.
By the way, I tried your "Drink Whenever Fink Says Nonetheless" game, and I passed out halfway through listening to the podcast. I had to finish the rest today!
The next podcast you should pull a Robin Scherbatsky and just say "nonetheless, nonetheless, nonetheless, nonetheless" (etc), like she did when she found out about the "but, um" drinking game in that one episode of 'HIMYM."
