WARNING: Simon once again forgets about sound levels and decides to shout "Get out" at a very loud volume fairly early on in this episode. This will be very annoying, so be prepared. Guy Cocker never has to put up with stuff like this. Sorry.

We're sorry that we weren't on air last week, but Ann Life Left was so great that we felt you would need an extra week to recover. Whilst we allowed Simon to come back on air after he promised that he had learnt his lesson, Ste was being belligerent so we left him on a mountain in Norway. This resulted in a different show to the ones that you're used to. A show where mic levels and timetables were not appreciated.

Sometimes - if we've been really good and very lucky - Ste and Simon are both unable to get to the studio. This means that Ann is given free reign and can curate her own videogame radio show. So we welcome into the studio Rock Paper Shotgun's Philippa Warr as a Super-Special Co-Presenter and Leigh Alexander, Mitu Khandaker-Kokoris, Kerry Turner and Monica Ion as the Super-Special Guests.

It's the second week back from our summer holiday's so obviously Team OLL are back to working perfectly in alignment. Except for the slightly dodgy start at the beginning, but that happens to every podcast and radio show right?
As usual after a #THIRDSDAY we analyse in rigorous details what were the successes (everything) and what were the failures (nothing). Except this time Simon wasn't there as he wanted to awkwardly interact with the repeating funny man who repeats things repeatedly Stewart Lee. Luckily this week's Super-Special Guest Ed Fear didn't meet Stewart Lee so he should have been at #THIRDSDAY, but he wasn't. So where was he then?
We never found out the answer to this so instead we decided to ask Ed about his new game which is Pigeon Dating sim Hatoful Boyfriend. Unfortunately we got confused about whether doves were pigeons, so we had to rely on Simon's wife on asking most of the questions. By the end of the show Simon and Ed were new BFFs which must have meant we were doing something right.
Ann started working as an amateur game designer, which didn't start that well and we perfected our video game producer impressions. Sega Badawi and Super Roger World made appearances too.
Ste and Simon are away next week which means next week is hosted by Ann. These are rare events but are always excellent so make sure you tune in!

Oh my God we're back again. Our summer break was so hectic that our parents refused to let us hang out with each other and it's only since school has started that we've been able to get together and talk about games and stuff.

This episode was actually recorded two weeks ago so prepare yourself for vintage/retro One Life Left. Ann had a karaoke injury, Simon was in a grump and Ste was possibly replaced by an imposter so we had to use the latest in eye tracking technology to suss him out.

One Life Left returns after a two week break and everything has changed. Or at least one thing has: the caretaker is on holiday, which means Ste is back to uploading the podcast which means it's frankly some kind of miracle that you're even reading this. If there's a second miracle and you can hear it too, here's what to expect:
* Super special guest Rachael Reynolds talks Sunless Sea, Fallen London, drops some exclusive news involving another dev studio and teaches us how to do interviews
* The team discuss their various engagements, including Simon's fun at Develop, Ste's adventures in Joensuu and Ann's trip to Kelis
* There's some promotion for the not-at-all-confusing third #THIRDSDAY, this time on a Wednesday, i.e. potentially tonight, so see you at The Loading Bar
* Reviews, news, features, letters, etc. And lots of music, talking of which...
1. Iron Ore - Sentiment
2. Klamm - Score
3. Calavera - About Us
4. Motionride - Whatever You Wish

After her adventures in journalism Ann is moving into new worlds. She's going to join Pip in our roster of esport athletes by winning the co-ed Hearthstone tournament. The only possible spanner in this plan is that she doesn't really know what Hearthstone is. Will she be able to learn this important information during the show?

It's pretty tiring work curating the latest and more important video game news. Which is generally why Ann (and local news cub reporter Sega Badawi) steal it from Eurogamer. But last week. Last week was an exception. Ann did some journalism and it's tiring work. She also shed a little light on her unbiased method on how she curates the news (further to the curation that Eurogamer had already done).

One Life Left prides itself on its news team. Ann has been with the show as a cub reporter and we've seen her grow into the excellent news journalist that you hear today. But she doesn't really get the support from Simon and Ste that she deserves. As you will hear in this week's episode where the lads don't expect her to get any proper journalism done with respect to Atari and their LGBT statement. You can expect to hear the All Apologies music next week.
