Star Wars The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes. Yoda’s Stories. Star Wars Galaxies. Salacious Crumb: Nighttime Assassin. If you’ve no stomach for weird and/or bad Star Wars games, you might want to reach for the Alka-Seltzer because that topic dominates this episode of Disembodied Voices like a too-vigorous dose of jalapeno. Cameron’s out of the picture, but everyone else is pretending to be friends in the most pleasant of ways: Zachary takes one for the team by promising to review a particularly poor game gifted by the anti-generous Cameron, Stephen wants to talk about Balloon Fight (apparently?), and Bryan is acquiring Money & Castles in Mount & Blade. Light on content and heavy on silliness, everyone is pretty much hoping you’ll listen to the end purely for Shadow of the Colossus.
Opening song:Electrolytic Man, originally from Mega Man and remixed by MaJIN_SaN, ambient, and tomatsu.
The panelists certainly haven’t changed in a week. Stephen is laughing at his own moronic jokes, Zachary is steadfastly holding bizarre opinions (this time he thinks Transformers: War for Cybertron is better than Gears of War), Bryan openly admits to being a fish, and Cameron is off somewhere writing a thesis on Black Ops. But it’s an artistic outing this time, ranging from the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection and El Shaddai to a mostly useless conversation about games that lean too heavily on their pretentious visuals. Of course, the mood is made far more explosive with a Because We’re Smarter Than Developers section about Burnout and a terrifying Red Scare during New Releases.
