In This Episode, We…

– Stick a finger up at innovation by talking about what we’ve been playing, which includes Mass Effect 3 (no spoilers), Shoot Many Robots, Golden Sun Dark Dawn, and an epic list from Richie that’s too numerous to name here.
– Pity our friend Ste, who recently gave up gaming for Lent, and discuss what the Gaming Industry should give up forever, not just for Lent.
– Drum up support for Chris’ forthcoming Battlefield 3 Marathon for the Charity Special-Effect, and encourage you to do likewise.
– Ponder on GAME being saved from the brink of administration, and whether there’s a future for retail after all.
– Resist the Dark Side that is Star Wars Kinect, complete with a mode where Han Solo dance battles against Lando, and debate who has it worse in gaming: Aliens fans or Star Wars fans?
– Prove we can somehow do worse than Lucasarts by attempting to pitch games that would somehow manage to be worse than Star Wars Kinect.
– Discover that EA have been voted the worst company in America, and question whether it’s deserved, or just part of the seemingly neverending backlash against Mass Effect 3.
– Once again prove we don’t need no stinkin’ changes, as we end the show, once again, on our recommendations of the week.

Thanks once again for listening, and we hope you enjoy! We’re planning something completely different for the next podcast, so stay tuned, and reach for the stars…

Life’s A Game Series 4 Episode 6

Life’s A Game Series 4 Episode 6 – 9th December 2011 – Click this link and then download when prompted.

So here it is, Life’s A Game, and everybody’s having fun!
It’s the penultimate episode of the radio series before the permanent move into podcasting once again, and this time around everything is a little… Christmassy.

Well, in terms of the songs, anyway. When it comes to the topics discussed this week, it’s decidedly less like Christmas on the show. Why, this week there’s talk of Miyamoto’s retirement rumours, why EA might be turning evil again, Worms Crazy Golf, Nolan North and his potential oversaturation, and other stuff you should be checking out.

As for the soundtrack, well, that’s where it feels a little bit more festive. Reminder: None of the songs show up in the download, so links to youtube videos are below. :)
Jingle Bells – Barenaked Ladies
Cheer Up, It’s Christmas – People On Vacation
Dead, Dead, Dead – South Park
I Miss You Most On Christmas – Bowling For Soup
Christmas Sucks – Arrogant Worms
All I Want For Christmas (Is To Kick Your Ass) – Midnight Riders
Christmas Is Interesting – Jonathan Coulton
Do They Know It’s Christmas? – Barenaked Ladies (Can’t find a link for this, sorry!)

So, that’s this week over and done with, but next week is the final radio show that Life’s a Game will have. From then on, it’s all about the podcast in the New Year. So, make sure you tune in to wiredradio.co.uk at 6pm this friday, and enjoy the grand finale!

Thanks for listening, and I hope you enjoy :)
