Episode 86: Nintenda Entertainment System

This week's theme is the beloved Nintendo Entertainment System, the first among many console conversations the DV Cast plans to have. Although the general idea was to have an amiable bit of nostalgia time by remembering the early days of playing the box-shaped piece of plastic, the show rapidly turns into a psychoanalytical trip into Stephen's troubled mind as a xenophobic youngster while everyone else is exposed as antisocial shut-ins. None of this should surprise you. Beyond NES titles from the old days, Cameron finds The Last of Us to have lackluster everything-but-the-story, Stephen relates with Thomas Was Alone (possibly because of his childhood), Bryan reminds everyone that Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams has super good music, and Zachary gives Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D a proper thumbs-up. It's a real good episode. [audio https://www.cubby.com/p/_79a9638743ba4844b18ef335436fa68c/Disembodied%20Voices%20-%20Episode%2086%20V2.mp3]
