You’ve Done 25 Of These? Who’s In It This Time?

Edward Price
Site creator and Podcast host; as surprised as you are that we managed to get to twenty five of these without someone being killed off, written out of the show or dying on us. Thing is, now he’s said that he’s afraid he’s jinxed it and is now hoping the casualty is someone who hasn’t been on the show in nearly forever.

Markuz Reid – Creator of Gaminglives.com and this podcast’s theme tune. Since his last appearance on this podcast Molyneux’s Fever Dream “Curiosity” has actually finished and not revealed Paltrow’s head inside the box, prompting Mark to begin the gritty reboot.

Richie Harkness
Creator of The 80s Movie Club; apparently easily swayed by a northern accent, so if Ric were a more evil man then he could probably rob the poor ranter blind with nowt but a smile and the idea of going down t’pub.

Ric Cowley
Creator of Signposted Disaster. After his attempts at picking up girls at supermarkets failed to see success, he’s decided to seduce ladies through the sound of his voice talking about videogames instead. Flawless plan, if I may say so myself.

So How Are You Celebratng This Milestone Episode?

- We start as we never do with a short episode of Ed’s Podcasting Kitchen Nightmares

- Then we move swiftly on to What we’ve been playing: Including XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Resident Evil Revelations, Call of Juarez Gunslinger, Thomas Was Alone, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Phoenix Wright, Night of the Rabbit, Pro Evo 2008 (Still, Richie?!), The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, Fallout 1, and MONACO: What’s Yours Is Mine.

- With half of the year gone, it’s time to look at current GOTY contenders, and we fail to really reach a consensus on this, though our nominees include Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider and Aliens: Colonial Marines (go on, guess).

- We try and predict the best releases of the latter half of 2013.

- Ric attempts to sell the Xbox One to Richie using nothing but facts and a northern accent.

- We decide where Microsoft went wrong with their announcement and explain why it left us so cold.

- Being the charitable gents we are, we do attempt to try and fix everyone and make it a console worth selling.

- E3 is abound, so there’s false predictions aplenty as we think of the worst things that could be announced next month.

- The Ouya is here! Are all other consoles defunct now? No. No, they’re not.

- Ric wraps things up yet again with a pretty little song.

Hopefully there’ll be another podcast in June after E3! Look out for it it might be cool!

Life’s A Game Podcast 24 – PokéSavile

If snapping lurid pictures of probably underage animals and blowing your flute at them isn’t wrong, then what is? Chowing down on Ronald McDonald’s Jizz Sauce? Taking part in a Nazi fashion parade for Cheesecake? And which of those is considered a sex act in Japan? Don’t worry, Life’s A Game doesn’t promise to have the answers to any of these questions.

So how can you listen to this then? Well luckily, we know the answer to that! For example, if you right-click and select “Save As” on that hyperlink above, you can download the podcast to listen to at your pleasure!

And if you don’t want to do that, you can always subscribe to the podcast on iTunes and leave us a lovely review about how great we are!

Okay, I’m going to guess the question and say that you can also stream it from the page by using the player below. PREMONITION!

Well Answer Me This! Who’s In This Thing?

Edward Price
Site creator and Podcast host; he hoped for an uncontroversial episode for once that didn’t require editing, and instead ended up involved in the most offensive podcast in the series’ history. If he edited most of this episode, it’d just be 20 minutes of talking to himself.

Richie Harkness
Creator of The 80s Movie Club. Hates clowns so much that he feels violated every time he even thinks of McDonalds burgers. Just don’t ask him what’s in the secret sauce.

Ste Marsh
Gaminglives writer and recently married man; he hasn’t been on the podcast since before it was on iTunes, leading many to wonder if he’d died. Turns out he was fine all along, we asked his mother and she decided to let him out to play.

Ric Cowley
Creator of Signposted Disaster. Is still convinced that David Cage is some sort of genius, and not in an avante garde sense. I’m convinced he’s just a sleeper agent designed to sell Quantic Dream titles.

Fine, If You Have All The Answers Then What Are You Talking About In This Episode?

- What we’ve been playing lately. (Tomb Raider, Poker Night at the Inventory 2, Bioshock Infinite, Real Steel, Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit, Pro Evo 2008, Luigi’s Mansion 2, Lost Planet 3 and The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct)

- The new Xbox is being revealed in a month, but the bigger news is you can now order Pizza Hut from your Xbox! That is a thing now! Yaaay!

- If it helps, we also predict what the next Xbox is going to be like.

- Nintendo aren’t doing an E3 conference this year or something. We question whether we really care or if it’s basically pointless with their Nintendo Direct conferences being a fraction of the cost and just as successful?

- Last time we discovered that Simcity was borked up the borkhole, and this time… it’s still buggered! Richie has a thing or two to say about that.

- Call of Duty Leaks. Tesco leaked something by Infinity Ward called “Call of Duty Ghosts”. We ponder if it’s legit or not, then Patrick Swayze gets involved and it all goes a bit Roadhouse.

-That other XCOM shooter thing might still happen. Is that something the gang really care about or did Unknown give us all the XCOM goodness we needed?

- As a PR Stunt David Cage has sent out 2000 page scripts that are completely blank after the first couple of pages. We have some fun with this thing and wildly speculate and come up with stupid plot twists and potential dialogue!

- Ric and Richie finish off with a blues jam about the whole podcast that you’ve just listened to.

Hey, there might be another podcast next month! Who knows? Come back then!

Oh, Those Guys? What Are They Talking About, Then?

- Things get ghetto and on tha streetz yo as Life’s A Game becomes Life’s A Rap.

- What we’ve been playing – including God of War Ascension, Little Inferno, Tomb Raider (which Ed loved, and Richie was apathetic to) and Of Orcs and Men (Warning: Minor spoilers for the beginning and one moment of the end of Tomb Raider).

- EA gets scrutinised heavily thanks to the plentiful amount of blunders surrounding Simcity and the retirement of their CEO.

- We decide what we’d do if we were suddenly snapped up by EA to run the company, with ideas ranging from free-to-play simulators to the Limp Bizkit Power Hour.

- Richie asks what’s been going on with the Tropes Vs Women in Videogames series by Anita Sarkeesian.

- Ric details his recent experiences in making girls cry.

- Richie tells us all about his new website.

- There’s a quick wrap-up of other news in gaming, including the confirmation of no single-player Tomb Raider DLC, Deus Ex: Wii U, and our initial impressions of the PS4.

- Ric once again closes the podcast with a song about what you’ve just heard.

We’ll probably see you again next month or something maybe?
