Zachary becomes the Lord of All Goats this week. In other news, Stephen and Bryan finally have a hearth to hearth about Hearthstone after the rest of the DV Cast harshly rejects their heist-that-isn’t-a-heist to hook a computer into a separate room. To be fair, Cameron is too busy preparing for Titanfalls to pay much heed to the dreams and aspirations of anyone else, let alone Blizzard and its continuing struggle to make Diablo III reach its demonic potential. Speaking of brand new releases for today’s generation of gamers, Project Snowblind blindsided Stephen with a revolutionary idea that first-person shooters will look to for eons to come: level design. These are exciting times, folks, and you get to spend them with Disembodied Voices!
Zachary may have lost his job, but one thing he will never lose is the will to Dark Souls. He leads the group in discussion about this transcendent experience and its uncanny ability to cause those who gaze upon its ebony night-colored glory to weep with tears of despair, and of joy, and of fury. Cameron’s crying days are over, however, as is his fanatic loyalty to My Little Pony, which spawns the second most in-depth conversation of this particular episode. While emotions are high, why not remember Remember Me, a game that everyone is yelling about and yet nobody really knows what to think? At least the DV Cast understands Titanfall, even if it’s accidentally insulted it a lot without being offered proper defense or even a lousy trial. Speaking of subjects relevant to Cameron, you don’t want to miss brand new segment Cameron’s News Alert, during which Cameron alerts us of news relevant to him! Afterwards, um… Waluigi happens. Or something.
The DV Cast tackles the difficult subject of difficult games, which is definitely an excuse to talk about StarCraft II and Spelunky. Stephen is once again exposed to be a closed-minded, selfish neanderthal thanks to his “play as no one but Indiana Jones Spelunky Man” policy and an exclusively Terran-based widow mine strategy, but he balances out the negative karma by quoting “Everything is Awesome.” Speaking of which, The LEGO Movie is haphazardly explained with too much enthusiasm to make sense and Gravity’s weighty subject matter (PUNS PUNS PUNS) gets a thumbs-up in Odd-eo Commentary. If that’s not intense enough for you, Cameron relays his experience riding a Giant Robot in the Titanfall beta, trying as he might to avoid spouting hyperbole like a 1980-something spaceman building a spaceship. Bryan has to close out the show all by himself due to technical difficulties, which brings the episode back full circle since it’s about difficulty, remember?
