Episode 115: Of Primates and Chocobos

There's no theme for this week's episode, turning Disembodied Voices into a Wild West Adventure in which the only rule is that there are no rules, which is contradictory in the wildest way. Speaking of oxymora, Zachary has visited the bananas world of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, a land where David Wise and Cranky Kong can high five in harmony. Yet not all is well nor do all hearts combine with friendship, for Stephen and Bryan have become embroiled in brotherly betrayal. The former hid away his unwise dealings with Final Fantasy XIV-- the third MMO on his heaping plate of video games leftovers-- to avoid scorn/shame while Bryan was out of town, while the latter saw The LEGO Movie again without the former. Thank the Moogle for Cameron and his unity-preserving DK Rap. Opening song: Chalupa Pass, from Minimap and composed by coda.

Ending song: DK Rap, from Donkey Kong Country 64 and composed by Grant Kirkhope.

Episode 88: Set Sale Full Steam Ahead

Have you heard about the digital retailer for video game products called Steam? Stephen, Bryan, and Zachary sure have, and they've decided to talk about it for a while. 2013's Summer Sale is off to a brutal and silly start with Tomb Raider and Scribblenauts Unlimited, respectively, and the process of buying discounted games is compared to beer commercials. As for Greenlight, the disturbing hoops developers must jump through rub everyone the wrong way, but the root problem is how dumb people are. The discussion finished up with each member's favoritest and leastest favoritest aspect of Steam, so there's your weekly dose of both positive and negative opinions. Stick around to the end, by the way, if you want to hear about Stephen's transcendent dream.
