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!

Richie Harkness
Creator of The 80s Movie Club. After his various excursions into midget-related rants, this year he’s seemingly moved on and now extolls the virtues of eating tapas over producing and raising children.

Keegan Spindler
Gaminglives, Beefjack and Platform writer; he’s due to be wed later this year, which in Ed’s opinion means there’s plenty of time to get a bouncy castle booked before the big day. What? It’d be awesome!

Okay, so now I know who’s talking, what are they talking about?

- Games we’ve been playing lately, including Hitman Absolution, Assassin’s Creed 3, DmC: Devil May Cry, Rise of the Guardians, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, The Book of Unwritten Tales: The Critter Chronicles, Mario Kart 7 and Saints Row the Third.

- This week’s first “With A Twist…” takes us to the underworld with “What if it was DmC: Devil May Cry, but…?”

- Breaking news occurs as we learn during recording that HMV are going into administration and we discuss none of the good times we’ve had with said store.

- We start the first of our 2012 awards, with Ric giving his “Shook the Pillars of Heaven” award to Sleeping Dogs, with Hitman Absolution and Mass Effect 3 as runners-up, whilst Ric becomes accidentally racist.

- Richie debates whether he should buy Far Cry 3.

- Keegan gives us his award – “The Most Fun You Can Have While Dying” and gives it to Tokyo Jungle. The rest of the gang nominate FTL: Faster Than Light, Worms Revolution and Hannah Montana: The Movie: The Game (even though it wasn’t released in 2012, trust us, we know), as well as why it’s okay for Ric to own the latter game, but not Richie.

- Meanwhile, Ed tries to plan Keegan’s wedding, with unsuccessful results.

- Richie delivers his award – “The X-Factor Audience” and attributes it to FIFA 13, with the rest of the cast nominating Doritos Crash Course (the DLC came out last year so it sort of counts) and Playstation All Stars Battle Royale. The discussion then turns to how weird the Xbox Live community can get and Richie explains why eating Tapas is better than raising a family.

- We bring back “With A Twist” as Ed pitches the cast a new idea for a game (“Fanboys Revenge“), prompting them to build on it with ideas of their own.

- With his game unsuccessfully pitched, Ed presents the final award – “Marmite Wank“, and is immediately caught out for stealing one of Keegan’s ideas and renaming it to something sillier. Regardless, he presses on and names Dishonored as the winner, with other members nominating Halo 4. The discussion then turns into lighting engines and Ed successfully sets Richie off on another rant.

- We end on our resolutions for the forthcoming gaming year and what games we’re looking forward to before saying goodbye via an impromptu Richie pitch called “Tiger Fuck Up” and a guitar solo.

Okay, so every time I predict when there’s going to be a new Life’s A Game, that doesn’t actually go as planned, so… if we say there’s likely to be one next month, that’s probably the most realistic bet.
So, see you soon!

Richie Harkness
Creator of The 80s Movie Club who doesn’t like the Wii U, Americans or being reverse groomed. His constant vitriol is actually used to power the servers this podcast is hosted on [citation needed].

Markuz Reid – Creator of Gaminglives.com and this podcast’s theme tune. His last appearance was in the excellent “Resident Elvis” episode, and in the time period since his hatred for Billy Mitchell seems to have grown into something weirdly sexual. If I wore a flag tie and sold hot sauce, I’d be worried.

In which we gabber furiously about…

- We start on a new tact as we talk about the games we’re most looking forward to, including Jet Set Radio, XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Borderlands 2, prompting a short discussion of why the Gamecube (or in Richie’s case, the Dreamcast) was the greatest console ever.

- Ed tries to hijack a Borderlands 2 Bungee Jump event to propogate the Life’s A Game podcast in what will be the first (and probably) only time he attempts podcast dominance.

- The time-honoured tradition of what we’ve been playing lately comes back, featuring Borderlands 2, Tiny Troopers, Worms Revolution (and why Ed is the worst person at naming Worms ever), Curiosity: What’s Inside The Cube, Double Dragon: Neon, Duke Nukem Forever and Sleeping Dogs.

- The Wii U has a launch date and a price model, but despite all of Richie, Ric and Mark’s reasons the Wii U won’t win, Ed doesn’t care because the Super Marios in the HDs.

- Speaking of the higher definitions, Black Mesa has been released, which causes Ed to start discussing how he wouldn’t have minded in-game ads in Sleeping Dogs. You know, because he’s a mental.

- The in-game ads segues to Obama’s paid ads to assist himself in his re-election, which causes Ric and Richie to discuss arcade gaming. Seriously, tangents man.
Resi 6 got released early, and we discuss why you’d be silly to pay ridiculous amounts of money for the chance to get a game earlier than everyone else why

-Pitch Time! The gang come up with their own zombie-themed games to help stave off the inevitable slew of terrible undead-based titles.

Episode 19 will be available at some point in October! :D
