Episode 68: The Speed of Love

Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the 68th episode of Disembodied Voices. The Espionage Santa Xperience reveals its true form in this action-packed installment, including four debatably amazing gifts of non-malicious origin. Zachary attempts to explain his complicated relationship with NiGHTS Into Dreams, Stephen tiptoes around To the Moon spoilers, Bryan stands tall in the face of F.E.A.R., and Cameron totally hates Sonic Adventure 2. Of course, it's not just belated Christmas presents that share this week's spotlight. Thirty Flights of Loving is greatly loved in spite of (or because of) nonsensical absurdity while XCOM: Enemy Unknown is granted accolades for doing pretty much everything right. LEGO Lord of the Rings is no slouch either, what with all its funny funny funny antics, and Uncharted: Golden Abyss is held up as a shining example of the Vita's power. Best of all, you lucky listeners get to hear Cameron sing again! [audio http://dl.dropbox.com/u/98302924/Disembodied%20Voices%20-%20Episode%2068.mp3]

Episode 60: Baptism by Hedgehog

It's time for the weekly dose of Disembodied Voices, this time extra long and extra shouty! After a thoroughly nonsensical intro of very poor British and Scottish accents, Stephen shares with the world his quest to build a PC that can play Sonic Generations, thus fulfilling one of his life goals. It turns out that eight-year-old games also run pretty well on the new machine, so Thief: Deadly Shadows launches the entire cast into a variety of tangents including orphanage asylums and similarly scary things. In other news, Bryan and Cameron have a grand story to tell in Shogun 2, inspiring the hearts and minds of human beings around the globe, followed by a spoiler-free recount of Zachary's time with To the Moon. Disembodied Voices Episode 60 is packed with hearty nutrients and devoid of unnatural chemicals, so you can safely consume the whole thing without growing a third arm. That's the Disembodied Voices way! [audio http://dl.dropbox.com/u/98302924/Disembodied%20Voices%20-%20Episode%2060.mp3]
