Episode 117: Wrath of the Nutter Butter

You may remember the long-harbored Disembodied Voices contention that surfaces once in a blue moon, but this time Cameron has stolen the entire stash for himself and is throwing it at Bryan! And who can blame him? Constructing bridges in the self-explanatory Bridge Constructor and watching hundreds of people perish because of your own uncontrollable hubris would put anyone in a foul mood, as would the stinky final boss from Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, which drove Stephen and Bryan bananas. Actually, Zachary's had a rough time as well with the trying trials of Dark Souls, even though the experience has ultimately made him a wiser, stronger, happier person. It's a good thing RPGs like Bravely Default, Knights of the Old Republic II, and World of Warcraft exist to calm everyone down and fill them with the inner warmth of predictable combat encounters. If you, too, take these values to heart, then please join the DV Cast in an audio adventure you will never forget for at least a day. And don't forget about Whales are Whales, the fun-filled network that Disembodied Voices calls home!

Opening song: Chalupa Pass, from Minimap and composed by coda.

Ending song: Blast Beatdown, originally from Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble and ReMixed by tefnek and zircon.

Episode 116: Where There's a Whale There's a Way

There was no theme for last week's episode, which spearheaded an avant-garde low carb trend of not having a theme for every week. That's right, The DV Cast is now free to talk about whatever the baloney they want whenever the baloney they want, and this week the ingredients are almost as numerous as that of actual baloney. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze-- king of swing, lord of banana hoards-- lumbers onto the scene with Scooby-Doo comparisons out the wazoo, and the momentous monkey is joined by The Last of Us and Final Fantasy XIV. Stephen really likes both of these games, but other people such as Cameron and Bryan engage in supernatural forms of black magic known as "logic" and "reason" to find fault. If you want to hear more ignorant opinions, you ought to enjoy new segment Ignorpinions, in which the virtues and vices of Thief are blindly proclaimed with no legitimate knowledge on hand. Even more exciting than that (if possible) is the announcement of Whales are Whales, a brand new network for shows just like Disembodied Voices. Support everyone in the DV Cast by exploring its website of wonder and finding yourself a new favorite show, why don't you!?

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 84: E3 2013 feat. Sonic R

That special time of year, bursting with excitement and merriment, has finally arrived once more, and it's not Christmas nor Bryan playing Scrolls. E3 is the topic this week, along with the bountiful bevy of video games shown at its many conferences and pseudo-conferences. Although the lack of Cameron means an unfortunate dearth in hyperbolic statements, the rest of the DV Cast do their best to recap all their surging emotions on the newsiest episode of Disembodied Voices you'll find all year. Zachary nearly chokes on his own derision when the concept of free-to-play Killer Instinct appears, Bryan makes a lot of super funny puns, and Stephen reveals that his favorite person in the world is Charles Martinet. Other stuff happens, too.
