Episode 104: Next Gen(erosity)

The fine, familiar, festive holiday of Thanksgiving is this very week, so the DV Cast have decided to talk with each other about video games. This is what they do every week, but this time it’s a holiday. Zachary “Next Gen” Walton explains the technical feats of the PlayStation 4 and the emotional state of himself (the latter of which has been strengthened by a new season of My Little Pony). You’ve got Knack, Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, Resogun, Ustream– the whole nine yards. The game-playing habits of Stephen and Bryan are still trapped in an all-encompassing Blizzard, but they have a hilarious and outrageous story to tell that is bound to become the biggest family feature film of 2014. (It involves Super Mario 3D World, so you know it has to be lovely.) Speaking of Nintendo games that were released on November 22nd of 2013, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds receives accolades, surpassing its divisive and smelly predecessor Skyward Sword. Lastly, a round of Thanksgiving segments set a warm, generous tone for the end of another episode, with or without sweet potatoes depending on your preference.

Episode 103: #theDVcast #Sony #livetweetFTW

That PlayStation 4 video game console device is out on the market, but since the only DV Cast member who owns one is out sick, the others decide to talk about every other Sony product instead. It doesn’t take long for Stephen to starting saying dumb statements about Crash Bandicoot the Wombat during History Time and sullying the original PlayStation’s good name in the process, which turns Cameron Kratos-red with anger. Level-headed Bryan manages to stay above the Sony All-Stars Battle Royale with his commanding presence as Person Who Talks the Most, which is a fitting title during StarCraft Talk. An exciting gambit of video games can also found in this podcast, including World of Warcraft, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, which– combined with livetweets– should bring in the mainstream media like never before. Good times roll like heads from the God of War’s wrath, so feel free to Crash the party!
