Greetings once again to the latest episode of Lapsed Gamer Radio. This week Mark, Cev, Andy and Stuart are here to entertain you with their adventures in video games.
We kick-off with a mini-topic of films based on games and if you had your pick of which game you could make into a movie, what would it be, who would you cast, and who would direct?
Our main section is of course, our opportunity to catch-up on the news of what we’ve been playing recently – featuring discussion of RATCHET & CLANK, DESTINY, ROCKET LEAGUE, LIFE IS STRANGE, SHADOW OF MORDOR, AFTERBURNER CLIMAX, CIVILIZATION REVOLUTION, TROPICO 5, MASS EFFECT, HEARTHSTONE, THE WONDERFUL 101, and BIOSHOCK. We also mention the CUBE ESCAPE games as a lunch hour game of the week.
We then proceed to have our customary brief natter about any gaming news stories that have caught the team’s interest and cover a couple of listener questions.
The Legend of Zelda for Wii U Will Be The Only Playable Nintendo Game at E3 http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2016/04/the_legend_of_zelda_for_wii_u_will_be_the_only_playable_nintendo_game_at_e3

There’s a new Call of Duty this year (duh!)
Chaos Warriors DLC free for a week.
In the show we talk about our Big Game Giveaway. We have 58 games in total giveaway on Steam. To get a game all you need to do is go to the GoogleDoc link below and put your email address or Twitter name beside whichever game(s) you want. It’s on a first come, first served basis and we’ll send links once a week.
We hope to keep this as a running thing throughout the year and will add more codes when we get them. If any listeners have any duplicate codes that they wish to donate we will happily pass them on to the other listeners (and give appropriate shoutouts). Email us or DM the @lapsedgamer twitter feed
