This week's show is all about robots! That's a lie, actually, but robots are heavily involved. More to the point, the qualities of a strong multiplayer are mode are dissected (Cameron's verdict on necessary components is "fun"); beloved moments of multiplayer gone by come to light, including 100% loony Call of Duty stunts and that wheelchair guy from Final Fight; and a brand new quiz show called TGIWIORWDIYHTGTGME is introduced. On the recently played games front, Cameron loves/laments his time with Dust: An Elysian Tail, Bryan goes on about Not Game of the Year 2012 Darksiders II, and Stephen uses Binary Domain to steer the conversation toward robots again. Have a listen and type something about your feelings (preferably about the episode's new format, but if you just need to get something off your chest, feel free).

The DV Cast is back in full effect and ready to bring you absolutely zero useful video game news in lieu of stuff they want to talk about! Someone has stolen Zachary's pants, but whether Cameron or the gnomes from Golden Axe II are to blame is impossible to say. Speaking of Cameron stealing things, he'd rather pirate the next Infinity Ward game than give them his hard-earned money, neither plan of which Disembodied Voices officially supports. At least he didn't illegitimately acquire (for long) Fary Cry 3: Blood Dragon, which Zachary now loves more than the human race. He certainly appreciates it more than he does Stephen and Bryan, who both want to talk about World of Warcraft and Mount & Blade but get shot down without mercy, forcing them to dive into philosophy instead. Philosophy and Altered Beast, that is. Clearly a barrel of monkeys would be hard pressed to compete with the fun on display in Episode 78 of Disembodied Voices, so turn up the volume and join in!

The elusive Cameron once more graces the podcast with his presence, but this also allows Stephen, Bryan, and Zachary to hurl hyperbolic insults at his beloved Black Ops. Although the conversation is largely dominated with this debate in which Cameron is wrong, you'll be able to hear about El Shaddai's beautiful weirdness, Rage's potential technical hiccups, and the "unseemly realism" of Bushido Blade. Top that off with a sprinkling of five word reviews and you've got yourself another fun filled bundle of audio enjoyment.
