After a month-long break (missed us?) explained by poor planning on the host's part, the Negative World Podcast returns to tell you all about the International Negative World Meet-up 2011 that took place in the Big Apple.
Listen to Anand, Mr_Mustache, Abdooooo and Guillaume talk about what it is like to meet with people you've never seen before, but have talked to for years; and discuss party games, arcade games, food, karaoke, and hot, sweaty (censored).
Thanks go to Mrs_Mustache and Jargon and his wife for participating in this very special trip, and HUGE thanks go to CPA_Wei and Deathly_Hallows, the New York City residents who had to put up with us.
As usual, the theme music comes from Negative World's owner and dictator, Zero. The rest of the soundtrack is taken from Mario Kart 64 and Savage Garden's repertoire.
@deathly_hallows Kaijin Zona! It seemed like a hybrid of an adventure game and something else, judging from the back. Bizarre. Can you believe that Nintendo published it? That guitar dude must have been an idol, or something!
Haha, how much have you played Urban Champion? Get Xevious! As you saw, it's more 3-D than real life.
@Anand I've played quite a bit of Urban Champion, I'm "COUNTRY CHAMPION" right now I believe.
The gameplay is braindead simple, but I really like the way it looks, it's relaxing eye candy, when you gain levels this magenta text cascades down the screen in uber 3-D, it's like 8 inches above the screen, it's cool looking.
I played a little of Xevious on your 3DS! Yeah the 3-D it's nuts, those NES classics are the most 3-D things on the planet.
Heh, nice find, but I feel that they didn't give Street Fighter II: Turbo Rainbow the credit that it deserved. It's at least 20 times better than vanilla Street Fighter II: Turbo. And it's totally balanced, because ALL of the characters are insane.
What was the name of the place again... 8 Bit and Up, or something? They had that machine in there, which we played, but should have played for longer, really. It was awesome. And we mention it on the podcast. And nowhere else on this board, for some reason. Hence the bump!
ALSO, you live in NYC, and we know what a big fan of double rainbows you are.
