Earlier this October, DrFinkelstein took a short drive over to the Ploot household for a day of gaming. This time, he brought the podcast microphone! Due to scheduling and technical hurdles Joe sits this episode out but inside you'll find a good 88-minutes of Nintendo talk from assorted Negative Worlders! On the show there's Paul (Ploot), Dave (BeardedNerd), Trish (TK_Thunder), Erika (EponaEatsCarrots), and of course Stephen (DrFinkelstein).
