Fashionably late to the party, it's Episode 26 of the Negative World Podcast! Rob (Mr_Mustache), Anand (Anand), and Lewis (Ludist210) join their host, Stephen (DrFinkelstein), in discussing some hot games being played right now such as Mutant Mudds, Radiant Historia, Kirby's Mass Attack, and a whole slew of games from deep in the past from a year known to some as 2005.
Soon after the guys dive into the real meat and potatoes by discussing the Community factor in gaming, Storytelling, RPGs, and Licensed Games!
As usual, the theme music comes from Negative World's owner and dictator, Zero. The music throughout the podcast is taken from a mixed assortment ranging from Okami to Tiny Toons.
You're welcome sir! I really hope everyone enjoys. Both versions of the podcast are up and running both in their direct links and iTunes. It took me a few more days after recording than normal to finish cause I worked more than I normally do. So we'll see how often that has to happen but I assure you I will always be eager to edit and release any episodes I'm hosting.
Be sure to come back with your thoughts!!!
I wanted to add too.... listen till the VERY end of the podcast for something special from one of the guests.
Winning Run was the SECOND Griffey game on the SNES. And it was great. A really fast paced arcadey baseball game. And while Ken Griffey Jr. was the only real person in the game, the teams basically had fake counterparts haha. Randy Johnson was "Bolt Lightning" haha. Classic!
Remember the Moray brothers? Wow! I played as the O's and I can still remember a bunch of the guys. I think Lee Sanders was the 2B? Catcher was Rob Collins, maybe? Curt Van Damme in Center? Anyone want to check?
I think I'll comment as I listen, because the podcast is so unfocused, I forget what was said as soon as Anand decides it's time to go on an aside. -p
Anand: Wouldn't you rather have watched an animated version of Enslaved instead of playing the game, since the gameplay wasn't doing it for you? I mean, if the story is what is going to drive the game, and the gameplay isn't anything special, why tell that story in game form in the first place?
edit - Also, how come you and everyone else are now pronouncing your name AH-nund?
