With no Ste in the studio today it means that all bets (and tops) are off. It also means that the show will go more smoothly than usual and the typical Curran errors will disappear. Well, sort of.
Luckily we didn't make an error in booking Adrian Barrett of Silverball Studios to become a Super-Special Guest. Not only is he an expert with the silver ball, but he's also an expert with the oval shaped ball (as long as it's during the night time and in Oxford). He tells us how you get authorisation from Nintendo to make a Mario game and also his other dreams, illusions and fantasies about pinball. If you remember the old Pro Pinball games then get over to his Kickstarter page now where Silverball are trying to remaster Pro Pinball for pretty much every system going.
Simon explains how he's progressed from pushing Phil Fish over in bars to pushing the general public out of very tall cranes in the interests of PR. But he also manages to get Doctor Avatar and Derek Williams mixed up. However, now we think about it, has anyone seen them both in the same room? Wait, we did. At our Christmas party a few years back. There's also a chance that we might have gotten the chiptune tracklisting mixed up, but we're sure you'll just listen to them all as they're all great.

We've often been accused of being biased in our reviews and particularly with our reviews scores. People have laid the unfounded claim that we're in the pocket of the evil corporations (and sometimes of the equally evil indies). One particularly hurtful charge said that we were puppets of the gaming industry.
But thanks to Edgar and Bryce of the Salle Pierre Lamy podcast we have seen that being a puppet isn't so bad. Especially if you drink lots of risky beforehand. Yes, in a FM-broadcast videogames radio show EXCLUSIVE! we have puppets as our Super Special Guests. Who were actually some of our most coherent guests for a long time. Edgar and Bryce even brought in a competition prize for you listeners to win so they easily fit into our top three SSGs who were made of fabric.
This is also the only podcast where you will learn the definitive differences between Cross-bye, cross-play, share shaves, use vita as a ps3 controller, ps minis and ps1 back catalogue. Please remember our easy to learn method and impress all your friends.
And you are all invited to our Videogame Karaoke which will be held on October 4th at the Walkabout Temple. Why not indicate if you are going on Facebook? http://www.facebook.com/events/468088143223621/

There's one thing One Life Left is famed for and that's being the UK's only FM videogames radioshow. Except apparently we're not anymore. But we are back, Back, BACK! with an all-new episode of your favourite gaming podcast. Except apparently we're not anymore. (We're assuming you've pushed us up to being your favourite podcast overall right?)
And this is a bumper episode as we have Simon P on the show! Luckily we're not desperate enough to have Parko back as a guest, but we have the creator of Fluid Football, Simon Prytherch as a Super Special Guest. He helps us understand the changes in Steam's Greenlight. Why didn't we get the exclusive on what colour light Steam were going to use? Our powers are fading.
You could be excused for thinking that Simon would be enough for one show. But our listeners deserve more so we got Matt and John from Harmonix on the show. They seemed to feel that they were the better dancers as they'd been on a tour of Asia showing off the fourth-wall breaking, time-travelling Dance Central 3, but they were soon put into their places by our fantastic replication of Oops Upside Your Head. This wasn't when we were on air so you'll have to take our word for it.
Don't forget our videogame karaoke is going to be from 7pm on Thursday October 4th at the Walkabout near Temple in London. Be there and bring your best dance moves.

It's the third OLL Golld and haven't we come far over these three episodes? Well, we've been on holiday so we've gone far but we're not sure if that counts. Either way you're guaranteed some excellent features in this episode as Raina goes to Funspot, Odds On gives tips and Chiara is still trying to get out of rural Japan. Exciting right?
This episode contains features from the episodes originally aired on 12/06/2006 and 19/06/2006. God, we were so young then :(
