Episode 61: Chickens, Kittens and War

Wait, don't say anything. It's written all over your face. You want to hear this week's episode of Disembodied Voices and all the spectacular emotional baggage that goes along with it, and this is the perfect place to do so! Halloween sparks discussion of The Walking Dead, psychos, and scary games that Stephen recommends (such as Animal Crossing), all of which are overshadowed by the unnerving morbidness of Edna and Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes. On a cheerier note, Cameron found a treasure trove of classic video games down the road to curb his Steam addiction (fight fire with fire, as the saying goes). Stephen has lukewarm news about Deponia and can't seem to appreciate the excellence of Darksiders, but a "Who Can Do the Best War Impression?" contest livens up the mood. In fact, fun flies like confetti in Disembodied Voices Episode 61, and you're invited to the party. [audio http://dl.dropbox.com/u/98302924/Disembodied%20Voices%20-%20Episode%2061.mp3]

Episode 59: Apparently We Like Punching Things

Cameron and Zachary are back in action-- and they're agreeing with each other. Dishonored sneaked its way into their hearts, leaving Stephen and Bryan a little bit jealous as the subtleties of blinking are relished with words of joy. Resident Evil 6 receives surprisingly high marks as well, even if half the discussion is spent on stupid-headed stupid bosses, and Silent Hill: Downpour also gets a thumbs-up. Bryan recommends Darksiders until the portal gun appears, which sparked grumbling all around. Stephen, uncharacteristically and mercifully silent this time around, has nice things to say about Thief: Deadly Shadows; the fact that it takes the sting away from having no Dishonored to play doesn't hurt. Video games are talked about and talked about well, so join the podcast of champions and listen to Disembodied Voices Episode 59 today!

Episode 58: Tricksy Pagans

Stephen and Bryan brave the cruel world without their loyal companions in this episode of Disembodied Voices, but they still need you, the loyal listener, to hear them talk to each other for roughly one hour. This enthralling piece of intangible entertainment tackles tough issues to bring you answers; answers to questions you probably didn't bother asking. Is the Toy Story 3 video game worth purchasing immediately? Does Rayman Origins elevate sprite-based dancing to a new art form? What makes SSX play like a fighting game? What makes 3D Dot Game Heroes play like a Zelda game? What makes Darksiders play like a Zelda game also? Why do all Pagans speak like Gollum in Thief: Deadly Shadows? By the end of these trials, you will be a better, smarter, wiser person.
