Episode 122: The Man with the Crooked Nose

Video games are back! And so is Zachary! Nostalgia is unleashed upon the panel like a wistful genie from a wistful bottle as Stephen relates his trip through the very first episode of Disembodied Voices, reminding everyone that they have come a long way and that Dragon Age is better than Mass Effect. Less sentimental is hell, but that's where Cameron has been living for weeks now. Diablo III has its claws in the poor fellow, and he's dragging his comrades down with him. Zachary can't bother with demon duty as his Vita (AKA NGP) needs tending, mostly because of his favorite title Ys Every Game in the Series. Bryan ditches the show early, unfortunately, leaving Stephen to ramble on about games that nobody else really cares about and Cameron to make a lazy mess of the ending. Some things never change. Opening song: Chalupa Pass, from Minimap and composed by coda.

Ending song: Crash Test Dummy Man, originally from Mega Man 2 and ReMixed by A_Rival.

Not So Secret Thanks a Lot Bryan Tactical Espionage Santa Xperience 2013/2014 Results

The gifts have been given. The games have been played. Here now stand four members of the DV Cast in the bright, fresh year of 2014 to conclude the Not So Secret Thanks a Lot Bryan Tactical Espionage Santa Xperience 2013. Stephen embarks on a decidedly Japanese RPG in Ys I, Bryan cautiously peers into the tiger-infested jungles of Far Cry 3, Cameron runs off at the speed of love to meet Sonic Generations and Sonic CD head on, and Zachary cackles with mad glee at the prospect of tearing into bottom-of-the-barrel motorcycle wreck Ride to Hell: Retribution. Will these games become beloved favorites for all of time or will they ruin Christmas forever? Both of these outcomes are profoundly unlikely! Opening/ending song: Christmas in the Village (Silver Bells), originally from Lufia II: Rise of the Sinistrals and remixed by Dale North.

Episode 62: In Which Zachary Makes a Funny Joke

Episode 62 of Disembodied Voices covers the exciting world of movies, novels, and YouTube videos. Video games are present also. Zachary has a boatload of horror on his mind, including Home, Corpse Party, and a grueling quest of death and redemption through the daunting spectral forms of Dark Souls. Cameron is more into Darksiders 2, the wonderful game that never ends, as he grouchily denounces everything Stephen likes. Speaking of Stephen, he's been playing Sonic Generations and inserting Star Wars quotes when he thinks nobody's listening (and pointing them out when he is ignored). Bryan finishes Alpha Protocol and sails off into the sunset with a psychotic version of Nolan North, followed by an expansive game of Civilization V. The exciting bit pops up with a listener email, not only proving once and for all that someone hears all of this nonsense, but going on to compliment said nonsense with articulate pleasantries. Next thing you know, Disney will buy Disembodied Voices Episode for several billion dollars! (That was a topical reference.)
