After more than a year, 29 episodes into the grand Negative World Podcast experiment, we still manage to get newcomers to volunteer! Host and editor Guillaume welcomes Anton (a.k.a. Scrawnton) and Joe (a.k.a. Ninsage) on the podcast for the very first time. Together, they talk about Tales of the Abyss, Kirby's Return to Dreamland, Resident Evil Revelations, StarCraft 2 and Serious Sam 3!

They then delves into topics such as special edition hardware, GBA connectivity and its link (get it?) with the Wii U, and party games. Anton waits until the very last second before hitting the homerun that wins the game.

As usual, the theme music comes from Negative World's owner and dictator, Zero. The music throughout the podcast is taken from Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles for the GameCube.

Comment on the topics, the podcast, the guests, the host, etc. on Negative World! Or, be a weirdo and post them on Facebook or Twitter instead.

Why not sign up for a (free) account?
@NoName Yeah, I bought a new copy of the game too, and I'm happy to have it. One of the few import games I own.

I just took a look on eBay for the Mother 3 Game Boy Micro -- it's going for $500+.

What is this home run you speak of?
I started this with the last podcast I edited, to see if people read the description. Now it's my new thing. Indulge me.

As for a new mic, I don't know. I use a Microsoft USB headset, but I didn't know it was USB when I ordered it. I don't know if there is any advantage to it, I think it just makes it pricier and leads to compatibility issues sometimes.


Hey, no problem for the shout-outs!

As for what you need for m4a files, I don't really know. I know my Sony MP3 player reads them but doesn't do the chapter stops or artwork. Recent iPods will. So will iTunes.

@NoName I won't sidetrack the thread too much, but I've also been solely on Ubuntu since 2008. I do not use the LTS version but I take my time to update. I'm on 11.10 and I do not like the Unity interface very much because my hardware is not that recent. I tried the 2D version of it that does not require anything fancy, but it was buggy as hell so I reverted to the classic Gnome Shell (home sweet home). I tried Linux Mint(that's what I installed on my mom's media center) and it's pretty good.

So yeah... *Internet Hi-Five*

That'd be awesome! Maybe we can run the N64 gamut. Or something. When was the last time you played? Its been a few years for me, though I did get in a 10 minute No Mercy Match (against Lou, interestingly enough) back in November '10, I think.

Yikes! That is a bit more than I'd pay for such a thing, but more power to those willing.


Yes, I too shan't dwell on this digression after this post, but I just wanted to say that it's rather cool that we've both been Ubuntu users since 2008. I suppose we were wooed by the calls of the Hardy Heron! Though, I'm not sure how woo worthy the calls of the heron really are. Haha.

Oh, and I have read that with 12.04 LTS releasing next month, the 2D version is much improved. So, hopefully this new release will offer some system relief for you. It's looking to be a really solid LTS version. And yes, the classic Gnome Shell is indeed home sweet home, whereas Gnome 3 has me worried beyond measure. I'm really hoping Compiz can step in to at least fill the customization void more now than ever.

Last time I played N64 you mean?

Hmm, how can I put this.... I borrowed an N64 to play Ocarina of Time when it was new. It was outstanding. After that, I played through Mario Kart 64 in 2006. It was also quite good. After that, I played Super Mario 64 about two years ago on Virtual Console. Somewhere in there I played through Starfox 64. Oh, I did also play the two Castlevania games on emulator. They were.... alright.

And that's about the extent of my N64 experiences *shame*

Yea... it's funny, I've always loved Nintendo, but after the NES and Gameboy, the next Nintendo platform I owned was a Wii!!

NES > GB > Genesis > 32X > PS1 > PS2 > Wii > DS > Saturn > PSP > 3DS
... that's my platform history. However, when I moved in with my girlfriend (now wife), she brought a SNES, N64 and Gamecube into the relationship.

So, yea, I'm wide open to a host of N64 experiences I missed out on!

Finally finished up listening.

Man, my face was so plain near the beginning at the hate of SUPER Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition on 3DS. That was like, my FAVORITE 3DS launch title. Heck, it's still my favorite game on the system, overall. It's such a robust and full-featured game, and I'm pretty sure it's the only launch title that was online-enabled. Game is awesome, no hate is justified.

Also, I LAN'd Mario Kart: Double Dash!! back in college. Good times.

Best party game ever though? Pac-Man VS. Because it's a blast to play, and literally ANYONE can be taught how to play in like, 30 seconds. And the game can last all night. Great stuff.

@GameDadGrant I also like Street Fighter IV 3D edition pretty much. The online is so full of Hadoken spammers though... It's a shame.

Whoa, sorry to hear that. Not sure how much they'll hold up now; we can play some Wii though or something. Or GC. Or I can bring over my SNES multitap and Bomberman, or something. I've got all of the Nintendo consoles save Virtual Boy. I think Lou has an N64 in pretty good condition (I think my ports are poopy).

No worries... I'm pretty good at putting myself "in the era" when I play a game for the first time. But hey, maybe we'll let Lou vote on this too =P

As the first post says, it's a remix by the site's owner, Zero, check it out! And thanks!

I don't remember the second Wario Ware night being quite so competitive, but it was definitely more hilarious when we didn't know what the fuck was going on. Most of us were in TEARS that first night. (Plus, more alcohol = more fun?)

Don't Catch Me is the best game ever. If Nintendo put that online, I would never stop playing it. So good.

Man, I wish I had LAN'd Double Dash. That sounds awesome.

And the touchscreen specials in SFIV were kind of interesting. It's like, "What if you took the physical complexity out of Street Fighter and just relied on strategy?" I guess the touchscreen allowed you to spam what should have been charge moves, though.
