Episode 124: Hyberbole and Metal Gear are Meant for Each Other

Cameron is still chilling with the bros. in Houston, but they have an additional disembodied voices to contend with thanks to Zachary "Still On Skype" Walton. That guy is a Dark Souls II fiend, and he dumps info like a Metal Gear Solid cutscene until his audience is satisfied. Funny enough, Metal Gear is the very next topic to get passed around as the Texas-bound trio have been working through Guns of the Patriots as they make gravelly grunts in the backs of their throats. Some other things happened too, presumably, but they really talked about those two things a lot. Opening song: Chalupa Pass, from Minimap and composed by coda.

Ending song: Sign of Fortune, originally from Metal Gear Solid 4 and ReMixed by DragonAvengerLevel 99, and OA.

Episode 123: Harmonizing in Harmony(ish)

The DV Cast knows nothing about space-time continuum, but something somewhere must have broken something fierce because worlds are colliding like Super Smash Bros. in here. Cameron has traveled from Oregon City to the sandy land of Texas in which Stephen and Bryan reside, resulting in a very, very exciting outcome: the ability to test a new microphone! Cameron takes this opportunity to rifle through the brotherly duo's video game shelf (comprised mostly of Sonic Adventure 2) and wastes no time in finding his oldest friend and ally Resident Evil 4. A newcomer to the game collection is Metal Gear Solid 4, which the panel finds to be weird. Incidentally, Stephen teaches everyone about Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. All this and more is discussed in real time with real people in real life on a real couch and one real chair, but they accidentally recorded with the MacBook instead of their new microphone so they quit the podcast. Opening song: Chalupa Pass, from Minimap and composed by coda.

Ending song: Chillin' With the Bros., originally from Super Smash Bros. and ReMixed by Amphibious.

Episode 87: The Land Before Time Was Limited

The past is an archaeological site of memories, but instead of handing over the findings to Mr. Blathers the museum owl or selling them for profit, the DV Cast wax nostalgic about games they used to play so very much. Cameron stoutly defends his mathematically devised 4,000 hours in Guitar Hero 2 with a wistful quaver in his voice, but Bryan focuses his rose colored glasses on Sonic Adventure 2: Battle and Star Wars Battlefront, tag-teaming with his brother to remember Chao breeding and jet troopers. As for Stephen, he misses the good old days of World of Warcraft. Ah, the sweet memories of two weeks ago. The conversation ends up highlighting just about every console under the sun and the most-played games for each of them, including the Atari Jaguar on which Stephen apparently played something called Jaguar Jump. But say, what games have you sunk the largest amounts of time into over the course of your life? This is the place to drop those thoughts, friend.

Episode 85: Robots and Multiplayer Games

This week's show is all about robots! That's a lie, actually, but robots are heavily involved. More to the point, the qualities of a strong multiplayer are mode are dissected (Cameron's verdict on necessary components is "fun"); beloved moments of multiplayer gone by come to light, including 100% loony Call of Duty stunts and that wheelchair guy from Final Fight; and a brand new quiz show called TGIWIORWDIYHTGTGME is introduced. On the recently played games front, Cameron loves/laments his time with Dust: An Elysian Tail, Bryan goes on about Not Game of the Year 2012 Darksiders II, and Stephen uses Binary Domain to steer the conversation toward robots again. Have a listen and type something about your feelings (preferably about the episode's new format, but if you just need to get something off your chest, feel free).

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.
