If Disembodied Voices had an official food pyramid but the food was video games, it would involve the four portions of relevant genres: Visual novels, Blizzard games, MMOs, and Blizzard games that are also MMOs. Zachary is neck-deep in crazy stories that each have higher word counts than a script to the Metal Gear Solid series, which he attempts to explain without confusing the hats off of everyone. It’s StarCraft II all night for Bryan and Cameron as they strive for silver status, but Stephen is with becoming the very best (the best there ever was) pet battler in World of Warcraft. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this particular episode was the lengthy discussion on butter and its proper usage. Oh, and there was also Grand Theft Auto V.
The Absolutely Free Weekend of Guild Wars dominates this week’s conversation, raising cultural tensions even more than usual as Zachary’s beloved Japanese RPGs are pushed to the side in favor of the West. Stephen the Asura Guardian, Bryan the Charr Mesmer, and Cameron the Norn Warrior paint a painterly picture of why they’ve been having such a blast running amok in Not-Azeroth, which includes a critical analyses of capital cities and a funny story about how Cameron accidentally did the right thing. There is sadness amongst the joy, however: Stephen’s BACNLFF (Best Animal Crossing: New Leaf Friend Forever) moved out of his town, but not out of his heart. To balance out these emotional swings, Zachary updates us on his steadfast quest through Tales of Xillia, followed up by a very brief round of Review a Game in Five Words. That’s it’s for this episode, but look forward to the new series “MMO Bros.”, in which Stephen and Bryan talk about MMOs for multiple hours!
