This is an idea Anandxxx and I were throwing around a bit, I want to see if there is much interest in doing it. Basically it would be a semi-regular (weekly? bi-weekly? monthly?) roundtable where we discuss one or another hot topics in the current game industry. The only major difference between this and half the other threads around here is A. it is posted publicly on the front page of the Negative World and B. it is focused and (I HOPE) people will try to join in every time so we can get a set of regulars contributing to it. We should probably post some questions in each roundtable to start things off but really, any on-topic conversation is fine, the questions should be looked at more as a mere means to spur on conversation...

As a lad of Indian descent, Tennis was expected of me. Tennis and Mathematics. Tennis, Mathematics, and an eventual career in Medicine or Engineering. Ping Pong was a mandatory elective, soccer was optional, and basketball was entirely out of the question. Given that, I played tennis, but I never really knew if I enjoyed it. It took the loss of opponents, youth, and flexibility to make me realize that, yes, I actually did like playing tennis. But that realization came far too late, and my annual tennis match does little to quench my thirst for the sport of nerds... (more)

During an interview conducted during an EA Community Event on Thursday, March 12, Peter Moore was surprisingly candid and forthcoming about EA's approach to sports games on the Wii. He admitted that the company was still feeling out how to create successful sports titles on the system that has taken the world by storm. Apparently, the plan is to keep trying different approaches until a franchise/sport gains traction, after which they will refine and iterate on that concept, the most successful example to this point being Tiger Woods Golf, which was not only EA's biggest sports title on the Wii in '08, but their biggest '08 Wii title, period. Further Tiger Woods games on the Wii will improve upon this winning formula. The upcoming Tiger Woods Golf 10 looks to be the definitive entry in the series thus far, featuring over 20 courses, improved motion control shot mechanics, robust simultaneous online play, and brand new (top-secret!) game modes that are sure to extend the already healthy life of the product. Virtual duffers should have a lot to look forward to... (more)

For those who don't know what it is, it is a DS game that is basically a bunch of little old school 8-bit (but original) games... overhead racer, 2D SHMUP, turn based RPG, etc. Then the game makes you do a bunch of specific challenges within these games... (more)

I should probably apologize for the slight delay in our GOTY 2008 awards. Itís been a crazy last few weeks, what with last minute programming on the site, organizing and participating in the first annual Negative World Chicago Gamerís Day, and subsequently being sick the entire week after. But it is better late than never. Special thanks to everyone who voted and made it all possible... (more)

This is an ongoing discussion between me and ... Zero. I thought I'd continue it here, so others could jump in if they were interested in any of the topics. It would be kind of confusing to post my response without any context, so I'm including his last response. Without any context. See if you can figure out what we were talking about. It'll be fun. Like Memento... (more)

DAMN this is HUGE, Dragon Quest sells like a billion copies over there. VIII on PS2 was one of my favorite RPGs of the generation, so if X is as good I'm definitely in line... (more)

Since this can all be very confusing, weíll start by getting the Homebrew Channel on your Wii first. Once we get that on your system. Adding applications will make more sense later on... (more)
