The Dulcet Tones Rocking You Gently This Episode Are…

Edward Price
The creator of this site and host of this podcast… or at least that’s what it says on his name tag. After going to E3 for the first time earlier this month, he now spends his nights laying awake and pining over his lost love… The Cheesecake Factory.

Lorna Reid
Head Honcho of Gaminglives.com, head-butter of nuns and editor of words. Plus, she’s an actual woman, which makes tackling the tricky issue of sexism in games a lot easier, I’d imagine!

Mark Smith
He’s the man they call Zero, and an unfortunate soul who had to put up with Edward for a whole week in E3. Luckily, this made it a lot easier to get him onto the podcast to discuss it. Cos, you know, Stockholm Syndrome. Plus he went to E3, lucky sod.

Ric Cowley
Creator of Signposted Disaster and demolisher of fourth walls. Thanks to this episode’s pitch segment, he’s decided to do a brand new Kickstarter project of his own in order to achieve internet fame, which is kind of like going on Big Brother except more people threaten to rape you. You can donate and/or pledge to it via the link below, and even appear in an episode as yourself!

Want To Know What Happens This Episode? We’ll Tell You!

- This week is kicked off as it always is, with what we’ve been playing. We start with Mark’s futuristic heroism on Ghost Recon before Lorna gets down and dirty with Deponia, Ric discusses replaying Penny Arcade Adventures over and over again for internet recognition, before Edward drives cars in a circle in the name of F1 Online.

- Nuns are headbutted in our discussion over the new Hitman: Absolution trailer as we begin to discuss the latest sexism in games debate.

- It continues as we look at ‘that scene’ in the new Tomb Raider footage, before judging whether it’s gone too far and if games are mature enough to feature that kind of content.

- Mark invents “The Jim Initiative” in response to the abuse towards Anita Sarkessian’s “Tropes Versus Women In Videogames” Kickstarter, which has seen her receive death and rape threats aplenty on top of that “Misandry In Videogames” counter series invented by over-priviledged white manbabies.

- We conjure controversy in our regular Pitching feature, as the gang collaborate to invent a new Kickstarter project designed to piss off the kind of people who give death and rape threats to anyone daring to move the medium of gaming forward through valid criticism.
Ric has actually created an IndieGoGo page for the webseries he proposed from this section, which you can donate and pledge to by clicking on this sentence! Neat!

- The new host takes over the podcast and drives the discussion back to E3, allowing us to talk about our favourite games of the show and what we’re most looking forward to, including NFS Most Wanted, Watch Dogs and Beyond: Two Souls.

- Edward goes into fanboy crisis mode at the thought of Nintendo failing with their latest console venture, the poorly named Wii U. Then things get a little Shatnery over the upcoming Namco Bandai Star Trek title.

- The show draws to a close once again with the recommendations of the week, including the point and click masterpiece Deponia, race winning F1 Online, monologgy Max Payne and broomstick-smashing The Witcher 2. Edward then warns against the recent Prometheus film and pitches an avant-garde masterpiece.

Thanks once again for listening, and we hope you enjoy! The next podcast will hopefully be around in a fortnight!

Life’s A Game Podcast Episode 14 – Haunted By Lollipops

With E3 just around the corner, Ed takes some time away from preparing and teams up with Ric and Richie to stave off the wait and deliver podcasting gold yet again… if we keep calling it ‘podcasting gold’, eventually it’ll catch on. We’re sure of it…

But wait, there’s more!

The Voices You’re Hearing This Episode Are…

Edward Price
The creator of this site and host of this podcast… or so he keeps insisting. He’s waited for over a decade to go to E3, but if he dies out there, know that he did in the most awesome way imaginable; buried under a mountain of videogames.

Richie Harkness
Creator of Peoww.co.uk, his anger and rants can be placated by dinosaurs. He’s such a big fan of derailing that stereotypical Victorian villains hate him for preventing their dastardly plans of crushing damsels under trains.

Want To Know What Happens This Episode? We’ll Tell You!

- Ric kicks off the proceedings by telling us a story about how his father learnt that lying pays, if only in delicious muffins.

- Ed and Ric explain their woes with Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock and Fifa ’09 respectively, Richie recalls his achievement whoring woes with the latter and his recent attempts at relaxation with Minecraft.

- Diablo 3 has become the fastest selling PC game ever despite having one of the worst launches imaginable thanks to the always-on DRM. We discuss whether the game’s success despite this will cast a bad omen over the future of gaming and encourage other companies to introduce game-crippling anti-piracy measures in future.

- Sony have patented plans to interrupt games with commercials, and we’re more than happy to tell you our opinions after this commercial break!

- Richie gives us all a lesson in naming and marketing your game after Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning creators 38 Studios have gone out of business, and Ric reveals some of the rumours going around about the bankruptcy, prompting Richie and Ed to complain about the over-abundance of MMOs.

- Ed fails to second-guess Richie’s potential disappointment at the Aliens: Colonial Marines delay, prompting a rant by the latter on 2K Games and why Colonial Marines will kill you with face-hugging and disappointment. Ric brings us back to reality and explains why the slew of delays to early 2013 aren’t the end of the world.

- Pitches abound when Ed demands Ric and Richie to devise a crazy PR stunt for an upcoming game at E3, with the winner taking over hosting duties for the rest of the episode. He soon learns what a massive mistake this was.

- Hosting duties are passed on and we all give some actual predictions for what will happen at E3.

- Richie reminds Ed that the Playstation Move actually exists, prompting Ed to tell the story of the Playstation Vita launch party and the bromance between Tim Westwood and Chris Moyles.

- Ric asks Richie for a review of the new XBLA racer Mad Riders, then prompting Ric to question if there was ever a bad Burnout game.

- The magic ends with the recommendations of the week once again; Richie sells Ghost Recon Future Soldier and Ed promises baby-making greatness from the Gaminglives E3 coverage.

Thanks once again for listening, and we hope you enjoy! The next podcast will be a couple of weeks after E3, allowing us to recover from the biggest gaming event of the year.

If you want up to date news, previews and interviews from E3, then I encourage you to check out the coverage from Gaminglives.com. We’ll be dedicated to bringing you the best coverage possible, and so if you check out the website and the YouTube channel during the week, and we’ll also try to throw in a couple of podcasts for you as well. ;)
