Zerolife Episode 46 – July 2015

• July 8th, 2015

Zerolife returns with Mark and Lewis discussing the highs and lows of E3 2015! Which games are they most excited for? (You can probably guess Lewis' answer). Which announcements were they most disappointed by? You'll find out in this very episode!

  • If you would like to listen to Light Matters, Mark's band, you can find them on Soundcloud and Facebook. I can give them a hearty (albeit somewhat biased) endorsement!

  • The Shenmue Kickstarter is still going – and there are stretch goals up to $11m, so there's still plenty of reasons to get involved... if you're into Shenmue

  • If you missed Hoop Gawd, count yourself lucky – but you can catch up here

  • Unravel is so awesome, I'm actually posting an EA trailer

  • In case you were wondering, this is why Americans drop the h in “herb”.

  • As promised: HARD TIMES DADDY! RIP Dream.

Zerolife Episode 45 - 7th May 2015

• May 7th, 2015

This month, Mark and Lewis talk Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, Rage, Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines and answer some listener questions!


  • If you want to have a website make up some insults for you, Insults.net is for you!

  • Once again, the soundtrack to Hotline Miami 2 is an absolute delight, which you can check out on Youtube.

  • You should probably just go out and buy the complete Brass Eye - at least to understand all the references we make to it – but at the very least, do watch the Paedogeddon Special.

  • You can see the Oliver Twins play Treasure Island Dizzy here but even better – you can PLAY The Oregon Trail here.

  • The game Mark describes that laughs/boos at you for not accepting the central task is Mystical Ninja starring Goemon.

  • The Bureaucrat Song! I AM BENDER PLEASE INSERT GIRDER

  • Behold, the true downfall of the Third Reich... Exploding Barrels

Zerolife Episode 44 - 6th April 2015

In this episode, Mark and Gavin discuss Sniper Elite v2, GTA V Online Heists and a comparison of CoD 4 and CoD Ghosts.

  • I didn't realise that the protagonist of Sniper Elite was such a decorated wrestler!*

  • Gavin, you're a feckin' idiot!

  • Unrelated, here's all US Army ranks, from lowest to highest.

  • Gabe Newell certainly doesn't seem too concerned about making HL3.

  • In case you are unfamiliar with The Italian Job – also, HOLY SHIT trailer edition has got a lot better since 1969!

  • Actually Mark, my Dad is retired now. Sorry Gav!

  • Further to PodcastEditBot's interjection – more on Most Haunted.

Zerolife Episode 43 - 5th March 2015

Mark and Lewis are back with a new episode – and, despite Mark's pessimism last episode, we are back on schedule! This month, we are talking about Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, Streets of Rage, more on why DLC is the devil and even a little bit on Bejewelled 3!

  • The TVTropes page on 40k is both a good introduction to the game and a great read in and of itself

  • Pictured: NOT a Judge Dredd knock-off!

  • As promised: The Space Hulk (1993) intro sequence

  • Fit Finlay looking the opposite of good in WCW.

  • Not only are there Cat Pokemon, one was the star of the first movie!

  • Behold, Ash, the gay stereotype Sega removed from Streets of Rage 3 for the European and American releases. I can't even...

  • For more context on why Mark smoked oregano, check out some Spaced. You might not understand his thought process, but you will get some laughs!

  • And in topical dead wrestler news, the ECW Zombie has passed away two days before we posted this podcast. RIP.

  • Despite introducing BrassEye to the podcast, Mark failed to recognise one of its greatest sketches – "Goods Aids; Bad Aids". For shame!

  • The future of Scottish football?

  • Honey Badger Don't Care!

  • THIS is what Gavin got so excited about in GTA. Heaven Help The Man indeed.

  • Amazingly, Slamball is still around today.

Zerolife Episode 40 - 4th December 2014 [Reupload]

• December 9th, 2014

In this week's episode, the full team is together as Mark, Gavin and Lewis discuss Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Fallout: New Vegas (again), roleplaying in RPGs, Mafia II and answer listener questions.

  • If you aren't as old and decrepit as the team, this is the song Gav was... “singing” at the start of the show.

  • If you want to see Mark's vision of horror (but with jokes), Futurama has you covered.

  • For the record, the boss battles in Deus Ex were indeed made by a different team to the rest of the game. 

  • The Escapist provide a very good explanation as to how Uwe Boll is allowed to keep making movies.

  • The behind the scenes story of the Super Mario Brothers movie is a lot more entertaining than the film itself.

  • If you want to hear Mark and Gav discuss No One Lives Forever 2, it was in our third episode.

  • Thanks to everyone who submitted questions!

Zerolife Episode 39 - 6th November 2014

• November 6th, 2014

In this episode, Mark and Gavin discuss The Stanley Parable, Mark of the Ninja and Tabletop Simulator.

  • Despite Gavin's best efforts to ignore it, it would appear that our friend Turk from Arm Champs II has struck again!

  • For those interested, here is a good description of the Mile High Club Achievement.

  • Mark makes our time at uni sound so tame. What he doesn't mention is that we were drinking this  at the time. Well, that might have just been me. Improved Animal Crossing immensely though.

  • Quick poll: Which is the better comparison to the voice acting in Mark of the NinjaKung Pow or Kai En Tai?

  • This video perfectly encapsulates the true sandbox nature of Tabletop Simulator. Just a shame it doesn't end with a table flip.

  • Cuthbert the cat is seriously bad ass. He was integral to our victory over some slavers!

Zerolife Episode 38 - 2nd October 2014

• October 2nd, 2014

In this month's episode, Mark and Lewis discuss preserving old consoles, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Goldeneye: Rogue Agent and Magic: The Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers.

  • First of all, and this may just be hanging out with Mark too long, I want to apologise for all the clinking glass sounds in this episode. That was me. Note to self: Thoroughly hydrate before next recording session.

  • Follow That Bird is on YouTube, although it does cost £2.49, so I have made a playlist of videos from it to give you a taste before you buy, because I'm nice.

  • They mostly come at night... mostly” 

  • For all that we give him stick in this episode, Lance Henriksen is really a great actor – I'd recommend checking out the TV show Millenium if you're not familiar with him.

  • Here's a shout out to Mark's favourite nerd-den... err, games shop.

  • This comic is a pretty good introduction to Magic.

Zerolife Episode 37 - September 4th 2014

• September 4th, 2014

In this episode Mark and Lewis discuss journalistic ethics, Shadow Complex, Command and Conquer: Red Alert 2 and Rayman Legends.

  • Firstly! We now have a schedule, just like we promised! From now on, ZeroLife will be coming to you on the first Thursday of every month!

  • Here's the John Oliver piece I referred to. If you don't get Last Week Tonight, it's well worth subscribing to the YouTube channel.

  • The third game I bought, which I forgot to mention, is GoldenEye 007: Rogue Agent... for the DS. Yes, I think I do hate myself.

  • Rap Critic's analysis of Anaconda is pretty much spot on if you ask me.

  • You guys, the acting in Red Alert 2 is just so GOOD... BAD... GOOD... SOMETHING!

  • Just for comparison: Tim Curry in The Worst Witch is about on par with his performance in Red Alert 3, and it's still not as awesome as Nicholas Worth in Red Alert 2. Think about THAT.

  • Rayman's Eye Of The Tiger level is kinda hypnotic, you guys.
