The Negative World Podcast is back! We've taken an unintentional hiatus this summer as so much energy of mine is spent right now on advancing my off-line life. Joe and I hadn't much time to catch up either so we got our schedules aligned and recorded a new episode of the show! It's our shortest (main) show ever in fact at just over an hour long!
To start things off they discuss Joe's recent endeavor into the world of pub trivia with other Negative Worlders. Then they discuss Video Game Vinyls for a moment. Thirdly Stephen brings up this new amiibo news regarding the Shovel Knight amiibo. After that it's a brief Now Playing segment (or more like Been Playing) where Joe has been focusing on Kirby and the Rainbow Curse primarily while Stephen is still up to his neck in ink with Splatoon. I hope we'll be able to get back to the usual podcast schedule and lengths soon enough but for now we might be seeing shorter episodes like this one. I'd also like to get the Negative World Euphonic back and running. If anyone wishes for that as well, let us know in the comments.
We finish the show with a mention of the late Satoru Iwata. I had intended to make this episode an Iwata-ganza but with everything going on I haven't been able to write a show that would do him justice. So we plan to do something in remembrance soon enough but not at this time. As I just saw his name roll in the credits of the last game I beat, he will always be remembered and he'll always be warming our hearts even when he is no longer with us.
There isn't any specific music in this episode but the show's theme music is, as always, from Negative World site owner and operator, Zero.
Aww, Joe, I think you made me blush, haha. Thanks for the kind words.
Lou's questions: YES, I ALSO thought it was Super Metroid music, and the Earthbound question was something about robots from the future, one of them has a red hat. I originally thought that it was going to be Star Fox for some reason (with their futuristic robot legs?), but yeah. Woo, Lou!
And to clarify a bit (give yourself more credit, even if I did get us back on the right track), I knew that Gloom wasn't it because Oddish followed it. I didn't know if it was "_________, Gloom, Oddish," or "Gloom, Oddish, ________," and sure enough, you popped V-P in there. Pretty awesome.
I'm conkin' out (unrelated to the podcast!), I'll have to finish 'er up tomorrow.
--Hey, some of your cramming paid off! They specifically asked that one question with "According to Hyrule Historia," which game comes chronologically after Majora's Mask, and how many timelines shoot off of Ocarina of Time. Amy got those, or at least closer than I would've been! (I think I would've had 3 timelines, but I had NO IDEA about Twilight Princess. Come to think of it, any time that Twilight Princess was a question or an answer, I think I would've been wrong!)
EDIT- Hinph was out in Vegas. And as far as making a quiz..there is a "come here!" thing on their site. If you want Detroit people, there is a "Come to Detroit!" thing on there. I still can't believe Chicago guys didn't get out an REP. Ah well..
