This special episode of the Negative World podcast is about one thing and one thing only (and yet still manages to be longer than any previous episode somehow): the Electronic Entertainment Expo!
Listen to Guillaume and TriforceBun talk about their experience at E3, getting their hands on demos for games that will not come out for months! Carlosrox plays the role of the everyman who did not get to go to E3 but really wishes he had.
The Wii U, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Luigi's Mansion 2, Mario Kart 3DS, Super Mario, Kid Icarus, Rhythm Heaven, Resident Evil Revelations and many, many more are discussed. Perfect for those 2 hours and a half commutes! Hey, we had to make up for a 3 weeks long absence, right?
As usual, the music comes from Negative World's owner and dictator, Zero.
@Secret_Tunnel I can't tell if that sounds like something sexual or a hamburger. Both sound yummmmy.
@gamewizard65 I'm not sure anyone is "invited" though. That's what I thought too but it seems if you wanna be on you need to be a bit more assertive? Or you need to fully commit and not give a maybe. I also called the E3 episode as self proclaimed conductor of this year's hype train.
@Brick Haha naw. I actually spent a LOT of the podcast with a muted mic since I was sniffing and coughing quite a bit. I'm still listening to it slowly, so I'll see if I can find a sneeze or cough that I didn't mute. Funny how I remember Tbun letting a good cough/sneeze in though. The healthy one is the one who gets a cough in lol, at least I'm assuming he wasn't sick too. Me muting my mic was one of the reasons I wasn't too talkative either.
If you don't believe me, ask Guillame and Tbun, I made sure they knew I was sick before we were recording. I even let Guillame know a day or two before IIRC.
What's this weird... squeal I hear at around 1:54? And skipping? Or is that just me listening to it?
I think gamewizard was being facetious, carlos. But yeah, GW, Carlos is right, when I ask for people to volunteer, I look for definitive answers. I've seen you post things like "I'd like to do one of these at some point, once I find a mic and move to a new place, etc.", and I've made note of it. In this particular case, it was a bit special because I wanted the people who were at the event. But for the next one, I'll make sure to PM you.
I don't hear the squeal or the skipping. I did lower the bitrate for this one since it was so long, maybe I lowered it too much at the detriment of sound quality... Also, I could hear someone's chair squeak a couple of times during the recording, maybe there's one I missed during the editing.
Dude, like Guillaume said, I was only joking around. Until the E3 podcast I didn't even own a mic, so, there is no way I could have been on one of the podcasts. Yes, I have been wanting to be on one, but it sucks, I lead a very busy life, esp. during the week. Also, I did move on May 18th, but that really had nothing to do with not being on a podcast. I was actually hoping to find my mic during the move, but I did not. My mom actually ended up giving me one she had, cause she never uses it. I guess it came with one of the computers she owns.
After I moved, my pc after almost 6 years, ended up f'ing up on me. My mom has like 8 or 9 pcs....don't ask me why she has soo many...shes a woman, who likes to spend money on the newest and latest things. Anyways, she gave me a Dell Inspiron, which is only about 9 months old, it has all the newest features and even has Skype installed. So, all I need to do is register w/Skype and then find out how to actually go about using it.
So, before you go 'jumping the gun' and assuming things, settle down young whipper snapper. If I was really pissed off, don't worry, you would know it. And actually, Guillaume has pm'ed me before, a few months ago. I wasn't messing around with him. I would love to be on a podcast, even several of them, but due to being micless and duing the week, except for fridays, I am gone from 8:30am until about 10pm at night. So, timing can also be a factor for me.
I was actually being serious, when I said I was interested in being on the E3 thread, but Guillaume wanted people who went there and I know he mentioned Griptor couldn't make it, and if he would have sent me a pm or asked me to be on this podcast I would have. Now, I am not going to beg to be on one, thats not me.
Just remember if you want to record a podcast mon-thurs., more than likely I will not be able to do one on those days. Fri after 5pm is good or anytime on the weekend. Of course things can and do pop up unexpectedly, but more than likely I would be able to be on a podcast during those days. I just thought the E3 podcast would be cool, cause I would have plenty to talk about. My biggest problem would be trying to think of a certain topic. I love just talking about videogaming in general, but I am sure I could think of something.
Edit: I know Guillaume always mentions about rating the podcasts on itunes. I never really have ever used itunes for any downloads. Can someone post a link and I will gladly give my highest ratings!
@gamewizard65 Sigh. Why are you making it seem like I'm attacking you or something? Not cool. Not cool at all. Settle down? Whipper snapper? I don't really appreciate the tone. All I was doing was clarifying for you and you make it seem like I was insulting you. If anyone's jumping the gun, it's you.
You've done this before to me and others and I've been nothing but nice to you so why would I all of a sudden go off on you? Disappointing. Nothing I said in my post was calling you out or anything.
And I couldn't tell you were joking and based on comments you've made before the confusion is warranted. So maybe it's my fault for not being able to tell you were kidding but it didn't look like a joke to me.
Ex-fucking-actly! In no way shape or form was I even pissed off or had I taken any tone with Carlos when I posted my first reply above. Sounds like he's a friggin momma's boy who got his little itty bitty feelings hurt, and over what? Nothing, nothing at fucking all. If he wants me to type something not cool, I can give him something 'not cool' that'll make his toes curl and his nuts shrivel up to the point he changes genders. Jesus Chirst on a bike! Shit like this just makes me want to punch a hole right through someone's face!
And this is exactly what I was talking about. You just proved my point. Someone says something and you're the one who takes it too seriously.
Then you call me names. Not that I give a fuck. Posts like your last few are the reason I couldn't detect your apparent jokes. Incredibly inconsistent. And now you're just being less cool cuz we can't even have a discussion without you flipping out. I'm the furthest thing from uptight around here, so once again I'm disappointed that you don't know me well enough to call me something I'm not. Is this how you react to someone who's been nothing but nice to you since you joined? Come on.
I've been kind and respectful to you EVERY time, then you go say shit like your above posts.
First off, the original post where I commented about jumping the gun and saying young whipper snapper was all in fun. If you really took offense to being called a young whipper snapper, I have no idea why anyone would take offense to that phrase, oh well. You was the one who said " that wasnt cool", so therefore that must have bothered you or something. Do I actually have to post something along the lines of a face_silly or only joking.
And then you accuse me of doing this to you and others! What, joking around!? Seriously, I have no idea what you are talking about. I just do not like being accused of something, when I have done nothing wrong. That is why I did go off in my last post. I guess from now on I will have to spell out everything I post, like I will say, I am being completly serious here, or I am only joking or I am pissed off. Cause apparantly you cannot tell, esp. since you say my posts are inconsistent. I am not sure exactly what about my posts are inconsistent, other than when I am pushed or accused wrongly, I will let it be known.
And as far as my posts in this thread, at no time was I pissed off, nor did I think I crossed any line to be accused of not 'being cool", ect. Plus, there was only one post in this thread where I went off. I think most people could pick it out. Just in case if some one cant, it was this post:
WTF! Why are you making it like a big fucking deal! Now I am fucking pissed off. What do you mean not cool. Why are you taking what I typed as not cool. I really don't need this shit.
I've done this to you and other before? WTF are you talking about.
Now, see if I would have taken this tone, I could have understood why you typed what you just did. You are way too fucking serious and uptight about everything. Fuck this shit!
Other than that post, and the one in response to Brick's gif, which I actually laughed at, at no time was I mad, pissed off, thought I crossed a line, ect. And I really do see you as being nice to me when you go accusing me of stuff I did not or have not done. You posts come off as very condenscending, like you are a completly innocent bystander or something. I'm not buying into it 100%. And I am not going to apologize when I never did anything wrong and then I was provoked. I do not put up with that in my real life and I am not putting up with it on a message board.
See, thats the whole point. I was never fighting, arguing during any of my posts until I was accused of typing something "not cool". Then being accused of doing this to Carlos before and to others. Then he said I went off on him after he has done nothing but be nice to me. Again, up to that point I had not gone off on Carlos or anyone else for that matter.
Maybe in his own head when he read my initial post he heard what I typed in a completely different way than what I intended. Like I mentioned above, I guess I will have to explain everything I post in explicit details. Hell, I even typed in my very first reply to Carlos, that if I was mad, someone would definatly be able to tell.
I was never fighting, pissed off or anything in any of my posts I made in this thread, nor any other recent thread until I am wrongly accused of treating someone a certain way(and others to boot). It reminds me of this one girl I work with who has no sense of humor whatsoever. Seriously, you can't joke around with her one bit, she takes every single thing anyone says to heart, like they are attacking her or something. I just do not like being told I was doing something that I definatly was not doing. It fathoms my mind that someone would even get remotely upset being called a "young whipper snapper".
That is all I have to say on the subject. I see no reason to take anything to the pms, cause really there was no reason for things to escalate the way they did in the first place. I was only explaining to Carlos in my initial post that I didn't really care about not being on the E3 podcast. At the most all I expected from him, if he did happen to reply, would have been, "Oh, Ok." Not "Thats not cool, you've done this to me and others before, yada, yada, yada. When I read his reply, I was like, WTF is wrong with him. I even went back to read what I typed, cause I couldn't remember it verbatim, to see what he could have taken offense to.
That's all. Going back to watch some more of the Mario Marathon.
@gamewizard65 And I was just typing to YOU I didn't like being accused of "jumping the gun" and being told to "settle down" when all I was doing was letting you know what the situation was. So you don't like being accused of things? It looks like you accused me first. No, you didn't get up in my face but I don't like the idea of being told to settle down when I was typing the normalest of responses to you. So maybe now you understand why you annoyed me in the first place. You did to me exactly what you thought I did to you.
"Whipper snapper" isn't the biggest insult in the world but in the context you seemed to be saying it annoyed me. Then you went and call me sensitive and a mama's boy and then threatened you could say more if you wanted to.
Nothing's escalated except your ridiculous flipout post and insults/threats.
