Tag team, back again… with another Negative World Euphonic!

This episode focuses on completely different and unique themes which really have no relation. First up we have Sports. Various sports have seen their day in the gaming sun and we've got a mix of seven wonderful tracks (perhaps even an eighth) which showcase some of the best Sports-music Nintendo systems have ever seen. After that we dabble into quite a huge backlog of games with the Pokemon series. We had a ton of submissions for this and what we learned was that when it comes to using a franchise as a theme, there's a good chance you'll be able to do it more than once. Maybe someday we'll see a Pokemon Part II for a theme but for now Joe and Stephen explore music with a particular reference to how grown up the music has gotten over the series iterations.

After all is said and heard we finish it off with a final bonus track which was chosen by someone who regulars over at Joe's forum, Nintemple.com. If you haven't yet, perhaps go check it out and enjoy even more gaming discussion goodness. The song chosen for the closing of the show happens to be a good one for browsing the web to anyway.

What do you think of the songs picked for this episode? How do you feel when listening to these tracks? What moves you? What doesn't? Let us know!

Somehow I knew my 1080 song would make it. It's such a bizarrely unique song for a Nintendo game.

I should've suggested Baseball Stars for the NES. It's probably the best baseball game made for the NES, with a fantastic soundtrack. Catchy baseball tunes.

Glad my song got picked for #1! Super happy to have heard that!

Kind sad to hear that @DrFinkelstein doesn't enjoy that series!

I am too. I love the music but the games have never grabbed me. I even love Little Mac in Smash. Maybe I should give the series another try. I am thirty now. Maybe my tastes have changed.

Oh, neat! Got another one of my picks...uh, picked. Whoo! I love that tune. So calming....!


...maybe! If nothing else, at least then you'll know for sure.

By the way, I tried your "Drink Whenever Fink Says Nonetheless" game, and I passed out halfway through listening to the podcast. I had to finish the rest today!

The next podcast you should pull a Robin Scherbatsky and just say "nonetheless, nonetheless, nonetheless, nonetheless" (etc), like she did when she found out about the "but, um" drinking game in that one episode of 'HIMYM."

Stop drinking! It's a trap.

...It's the rules. He said 'Nonetheless'.

God help us all.

If that Darkrai is still available, I'll take it off your hands and give it a nice home

I don't think you can get Darkrai anymore. The code entry time limit was May 24.

At least, I think...

Seriously?! I didn't know that was a thing!!


I'll send you a PM w/ the code and you can try it. If it doesn't work for you, it's useless to anyone else so ... *shrug* Check your inbox! .... in a few minutes.
