Episode 105: From Accordion Guy to Zombie Shroom

Mario is in the hearts and minds of the DV Cast this week, as are his many friends and enemies. Especially the enemies, but that comes later. You see, Stephen and Bryan have been playing oodles of Super Mario 3D World, a game tells the tail of King Koopa Meow-ser as he hatches the purr-fect plan to cat-ure Princess Peach and whisk 'er away. As for the Wii-U-less Cameron, he's been enduring the Samsara Cheese Wheel of Eternity in his arch-nemesis Dark Souls between long bouts of StarCraft Talk with baneling basher Bryan. History Time looks back on Mario memories, fond and finicky alike, before It's-a Who? takes the world by storm with its quiz-like horrors. If this podcast were a piece of scenery, it would have little cartoon eyes like in the Mushroom Kingdom. It's just that lively. Opening song: Funky Bits by Yoann Turpin.

Ending song: Slide from Super Mario 64.

Episode 104: Next Gen(erosity)

The fine, familiar, festive holiday of Thanksgiving is this very week, so the DV Cast have decided to talk with each other about video games. This is what they do every week, but this time it's a holiday. Zachary "Next Gen" Walton explains the technical feats of the PlayStation 4 and the emotional state of himself (the latter of which has been strengthened by a new season of My Little Pony). You've got Knack, Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, Resogun, Ustream-- the whole nine yards. The game-playing habits of Stephen and Bryan are still trapped in an all-encompassing Blizzard, but they have a hilarious and outrageous story to tell that is bound to become the biggest family feature film of 2014. (It involves Super Mario 3D World, so you know it has to be lovely.) Speaking of Nintendo games that were released on November 22nd of 2013, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds receives accolades, surpassing its divisive and smelly predecessor Skyward Sword. Lastly, a round of Thanksgiving segments set a warm, generous tone for the end of another episode, with or without sweet potatoes depending on your preference. Opening song: Funky Bits by Yoann Turpin.

Ending song: So Long and Thanks for All the..., originally from Sonic 3 & Knuckles and ReMixed by Red Tailed Fox.

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.
