There was a chance that Ste was nearly not going to make the recording of this show. He claims it was because the train was late, but did he stop for a pasty? And if so had it cooled enough for it to still be VAT free? Or did he mean the other type of pasty?
At least FOTS Leo Tan managed to make it on time to the show and he came all the way from America. How is he finding it across the pond? Has he offended the whole country yet or just their videogame journalists? All will be revealed in this episode.
We also have a new feature in Press XY to Continue, Derek Williams provides us with another Free Market Economy and we explain the reasoning behind the tweet we made to Daniel Nye Griffiths during the show. Unfortunately while we were recording this episode Polygon broke into our houses and took photos of where we 'game', expect to see that bit under the stairs where Simon's Wii used to live on their website soon :(
This will be the last episode before Christmas so enjoy the Winterval (sorry Ann)!

If there's one person that One Life Left chooses to follow as their leader in life other than Taylor Swift or Martin Hollis then it has to be Dean Gaffney. So when we read that he had applied to join MI5 we thought that if we got an actual spy on the show then it would help us in our quest to Be Like Dean.
Unfortunately Simon read the e-mail wrong and booked Matthew Reynolds, gaming editor for Digital Spy. But that actually turned out to be a great decision as we're a radio show about videogames and we're not sure Judi Dench would be able to tell us much about the Wii U (although Nintendo have probably signed her up for an advert).
Matthew tells us what it's like to work for the Internet's fourteenth best website and what the Wii U is actually like to play as Nintendo didn't send us one after that incident with Shigsy we can't talk about. He also manages to avoid staring at Simon's massive coldsore, getting confused by Ste's hungover questioning and the thing Ann did that was literally unbroadcastable.
However, he did let slip about the housewarming party that he's holding on the same day as our Christmas Party. So that's our after party sorted, we just have the hotel lobby and the room to arrange now.
1. Jredd - Limitless
2. Peekachoo - Pilgrimage
3. Ocean palace - Tetrahydrocannabinol
4. Hektagon - Tayo
