Game of the Year Award Thing 2012: Story

Since before the recording of human history, people have told stories of great deeds, turning life to myth and myth to life through the ages, creating something intangible yet eternally meaningful-- and all so the DV Cast can argue about video games! The Disembodied Voices Game of the Year Award Thing 2012 takes on the hefty topic of storytelling and everything that surrounds it, even if that basically just means talking about The Walking Dead and Thomas Was Alone for two hours. Vigorous debate frosted with a light layer of contention fuels this episode of tough choices and everyone was kind of tired so it's a wonder the whole thing didn't fall to pieces. Please do listen at your leisure as the adventure unfolds! [audio http://dl.dropbox.com/u/98302924/DVGOtYAT%202012%20-%20Story.mp3]
