Episode 101: History Repeats Itself and So Does Animal Crossing

What are your go-to games, reader and potential listener? Which ones do you never tire of playing, or even if you do, you continue consuming because you are physically/mentally unable to stop? The DV Cast (minus Zach) shed their own light on this cold-button issue (a cold-button issue is something that nobody else is really talking about), which serves as the theme of Episode 101. Summarize a Game in Five Words gives poetry to opinion while brand new segment Steamed Broccoli encourages the invasion of privacy via Steam history, each of them tying into go-to games in their own special way. You'll also hear about Typing of the Dead: Overkill's secret to success, the yakuza's involvement in The Sims 3, and 1080 Avalanche's affordable madness. There's also some StarCraft Talk, but it would be easier to count the episodes not featuring Zerg-related conversation at this point. Opening song: Funky Bits by Yoann Turpin.

Ending song: Musicolours, originally from The Sims 3 and ReMixed by Guifrog.

Episode 82: Deep Dish Podcast

This episode of Disembodied Voices is, as they used to say in the olden times of your ancestor's ancestors, a doozy. Stephen begins the show with a confusing time travel gag, which almost immediately loses him the hosting seat. Thank the gods of artful podcastery that Bryan leads his noble band into more intelligent territory, including dating sims and Noid. Speaking of the former, Zachary has essentially given his life for a visual novel whose title he declines to impart, leading nicely into Stephen's xenophobic diatribe on people and the silly relationships they have. All of this relates to Liberation Maiden and Binary Domain, both of which Stephen has been enjoying over the weekend. His brother has been rather American about the whole affair-- opting for Knights of the Old Republic and a small chunk of Anarchy Online-- just to increase the cultural confusion. It's a pretty dumb episode, folks. [audio https://www.cubby.com/p/_86c8f42abc994e1080fcd96b8ee7c232/Disembodied+Voices+-+Episode+82.mp3]

Episode 73: Not Episode 72

You have come. You have come to the throes of destiny-- YOUR destiny-- and it is called Disembodied Voices. This podcast will reveal to you many things and many things will be revealed. Stephen demonstrates the language of Twi'leki as he speaks of the mystical and ancient game of pazaak; Bryan summons his inner Sun Tzu to wage a physical and spiritual war against the vile Zerg; Cameron draws upon a raindrop-filled well of wisdom to elaborate on the nature of personal ownership and its enlightenment; Zachary offer instruction on the art of outrunning the Komodo dragon itself. In other words, everyone talks about video games. Come, be not afraid, and listen to this podcast, good haly. (That's Twi'leki for "visitor".)
