The final one of three OLL's that almost never were brings a new adventure: how can they do a show with no features, no music, no themes and a broken Mac? We join the broadcast at 7pm with The Bike Show's sassy salsa muffling abject panic in the Resonance FM studio:
Also this week:
+ The OBE discussion moves on with a look at what we can learn from the games industry professionals already honoured by HRH The Best Queen Ever
+ OH MY GOD WHAT DO WE DO EVERYTHING'S BROKEN
+ A review section manfully steered by Simon as Ste tries to put out bits of the studio that are (metaphorically???) on fire
Audio levels are a bit of a mess, particularly during the reviews section. As always we've tried to fix it in post production but it's not the best. Apologies for that.
Next week: Simon and Ann do the show on their own. Probably for the best.
See you soon!
PS I said this last week, and the week before that, but it deserves repeating for a second time: PLEASE remember to follow us on Twitter / Facebook / tell your friends / etc. We rely on word of mouth for publicity. WE NEED YOU AND CHERISH EVERY PIECE OF HELP YOU GIVE US. Thank you, thank you.

Welcome to the second part of catch-up trilogy! With Simon excused from duty, the episode from the 17th of January has a different tone to most episodes of One Life Left. Ste and Ann actually talk about games! I know. Imagine. Or better yet, listen.
Once you've listened please let us know what the episode was about? It has been ages and we can't bear to listen just in case it's unlistenable. That would be awkward.
Things we remember:
1) Some chat about the new OBE adventure.
2) ... Music? Features? More Taliah?
3) That's it.
See you shortly for part 3, which was a ludicrous nightmare for all kinds of reasons. But definitely fun.

One Life Left shows are like buses. They're noisy, difficult to control, dangerous to cyclists and they have very little to do with videogames. No, wait, that's not right...
Isn't it something to do with how you wait ages for one and then (potentially) three come along at once? Like:
1) This episode, which was lost for two weeks before Ste managed to locate the memory card (which came perilously close to the washing machine)...
2) Last week's episode, which didn't record (because we had to borrow one from Resonance, which turned out not to work) but we're hoping for a bootleg copy tomorrow...
and 3) Tomorrow's episode, which you can hear live on Resonance 104.4FM or streamed at www.resonancefm.com at 7pm. Normally we'd tell you to wait for the podcast, but, etc.
We'll be addressing our 'timing' 'issues' in Season 6*,
In this episode, the first of the trilogy, please find some minor amount of videogame discussion alongside One Life Left's plans for 2011 and lots of brilliant music / features. It's going to be a good year.
PS Remember to follow us on Twitter / Facebook / tell your friends / etc. We rely on word of mouth for publicity. WE NEED YOU AND CHERISH EVERY PIECE OF HELP YOU GIVE US. Although we were on the iTunes front page over Christmas, apparently. Thank goodness the featured show wasn't an end-of-year car-crash or anything, right? HMM.
* Someone else is going to put the episodes online, basically.
