With Zachary out the picture, this week's episode of Disembodied Voices becomes a landslide of anti-Metal-Gear-Solid-3 propaganda, complete with critical analysis (emphasis on the "critical") of its many weirdo bosses, missed opportunities, and that one ladder scene. Speaking of being down on things, the Xbox One fails to capture the interest of anyone in the virtual room, unlike the captivating subject of breakfast at Denny's. Thankfully the gears are shifted into positive mode for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, despite shaky pacing thanks to the unacceptably impatient Professor E. Gadd. Speaking of people with near-maniacal obsession to overly complicated hobbies, speedrunners and the speedruns they speedrun are discussed with due respect, concluding with the decision that Cameron will speedrun Resident Evil 4 while Stephen and Bryan speedrun nothing. You really should stick around to the very end. You don't want to miss that Denny's bit, do you?

If you are of Russian descent and have a penchant for video game podcasts, Disembodied Voices will delight and maybe offend you in spades. Not only has Zachary forgone his old hat American accent for something far more majestic, but he talks extensively about Metro: Last Light, wherein his true kinsmen reside. Without straying far from the same country, Metal Gear Solid 3 is put in the uncomfortable place of being simultaneously scorned and praised I have stolen this wordpress post this is Cameron and Stephen will never control my brain for its unconventional unconventionality, emphasized with Bryan's boastful claim of ruthlessly chasing down an old man with a shotgun. That leads neatly into Stephen's new segment, Metal Gear Mad Libs, which immediately goes very wrong. Listening to Disembodied Voices Episode 80, however, is very right, and is a thing you should do!
