Episode 107: Best Laid Plants

The good news is that Zachary is no longer in a coma; the bad news is that Cameron totally is. Well, he's asleep, anyway, and that leaves a trio of largely worn out DV Cast members to keep this podcast afloat on their own. Zachary delights at every turn with stories from the creative world of Tearaway, the self-actualizing Doki Doki Universe, and Ys: Memories of Celceta's fast-paced adventure. Stephen, on the other hand, is uncharacteristically frustrated and upset with Fire Emblem: Awakening, The Desolation of Smaug (or Smog), and life in general. Bryan's just trying to stay awake. Take your lumps in this pretty good episode of Disembodied Voices which is not at all about plants after all. Opening song: Funky Bits by Yoann Turpin.

Ending song: Madd Forest, originally from Castlevania III: The Curse of Dracula and ReMixed by Joshua Morse.

Episode 76: The Legend of Titan Tails

Kevin Conroy joins the DV Cast for this special edition of the renowned video game podcast except not really because it's just Stephen doing a Batman impression. He's been inspired by the Injustice: Gods Among Us demo, you see, which somehow pulls the discussion into a sinkhole of Sonic the Hedgehog Archie comics. Speaking of plots that make little to no sense, BioShock Infinite gets some non-spoilery air time, including Bryan's ultra hard mode second playthrough. Stephen has been busy torturing himself as well, what with Viewtiful Joe's soul crushing boss encounters and BattleBlock Theater's gauntlet of terror; it's a wonder he's anything more than an empty husk of shattered hope by now. But to keep the glass half full of sake, Zachary has been busy playing JRPGs like Persona 4 and Fire Emblem: Awakening. Don't miss out on the super duper fun!

Episode 70: A Pretty Much Okay Episode

Disembodied Voices is ready and willing to celebrate the Year of Luigi with high-jumping, ghost-fearing enthusiasm-- or, at the very least, Stephen clearly is. But hey, everyone else is game to talk about the recent Nintendo Direct broadcast and it's moderately sized avalanche of announcements, even the conversation eventually bleeds into new consoles and Activision/Bungie's destiny. The future of the gaming industry is usually a really dumb subject here at Disembodied Voices, and this week more or less proves the point. Nevertheless, despite rampant pessimism and shaky speculation on years to come, Hyrule Historia and Fire Emblem: Awakening swoop in to makes things right again. If you're looking for a pretty much okay episode of the hippest video game podcast on the 'net, Disembodied Voices Episode 70 is your first and last stop.

Episode 69: Disembodied Voices Awakening

Disembodied Voices is back and nothing will ever be the same again! Well, you've got Stephen, Bryan, Cameron, and Zachary sitting around and talking about video games, sure-- but other than that, nothing will ever be the same again! The structure is new, the theme song is new, and there will be newer new stuff to come. The newness is almost unbearable. Yes, the tea table has been upended, leaving a brand new format of conversational free-flowing free-for-all in its wake. During this exciting time in Disembodied Voices history, Cameron wants to talk about Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, so Stephen performs the greatest talent he possesses: a Bentley impression. Speaking of totally unrelated things, the confounding Shin Megami Tensei series is (kind of) explained courtesy of Zach, while the topic of Fire Emblem: Awakening leads onto a chat about difficulty difficulties in the video gaming world. A plethora of other topics are dived into as well, concluding with everybody's top and bottom three Final Fantasy games. Disembodied Voices Episode 69 is, quite frankly, the place to be.
