Life’s A Game was on the air this week for the penultimate episode of the third series on Wired Radio, and with special guest star Charlotte Spencer by my side we kicked gaming to the ground, stole its lunch money and forced it to eat our dirt. If by kicked to the ground you mean discussed several games, by force fed to eat dirt you mean given our opinions and by stole it’s lunch money you mean I got slapped.
Up for discussion this week were the new iterations of the Pokémon franchise, the phenomenon that is Minecraft, the sexist ridiculousness that is Duke Nukem Forever and the life’s already in it that is the 3DS.

The show does not feature the original music that was played, due to podcasting/copyright reasons, but the song introductions (Ie, “This song is…”) are kept in so you know what the songs to allow you to listen to them of your own accord, and also because editing those out makes the shows sound awkward, makes the editing a needlessly longer process and breaks the flow.
Each song listed in the playlists below are linked to a YouTube video with the song in, if you don’t have the songs yourself.
