Not being able to land helicopters on top of buildings or swim out to sea is the worst, so the DV Cast will be talking about open-world games this week. Mercenaries, Skyrim, Red Dead Redemption, and a gang of similar games are gathered together and compared against one another as the perfect combination is pondered, placing scope and exploration as holy grails of open-worldliness. You can also look forward to cherished memories of such games and a Wikipedia-based quiz that you can technically play along with, but you're not specifically invited, sorry. But hey, cheer up! Lots of other fun stuff happens, too. Stephen gives into all the things about video games that he doesn't like and become a mass-murdering Lara Croft convert, Bryan obliterates an entire city because he's evil, and Zachary becomes a human Shin Megami Tensei bestiary. As for Cameron, his opinion is vaguely insulted in his absence. Yes indeed, this episode has everything!

Hi. This is Disembodied Voices, a podcast for all of humanity to enjoy. Although video games are the attempted focus, Bryan wants to browse Wikipedia and read you snippets from 1877 history, so buckle up for an exciting ride this week. But hold up now and fear not! All the critically acclaimed games you're dying to hear about are just around the corner, including Working Dawgs: Rivet Retriever and Dress to Play: Cute Witches! These heavy-hitting legends aside, talk of the latest Nintendo Direct drifts through the new Yoshi's Island game, A Link to the Past 2, and flying Pikmin. Pandora's Tower and Dishonored DLC are also visited, both of which include off-putting amounts of raw meat. That ought to sell you on Episode 77 of Disembodied Voices for sure.
