One Life Left's Podcast

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...

Track List:

1. Iron Ore - Sentiment

2. Klamm - Score

3. Calavera - About Us

4. Motionride - Whatever You Wish

One Life Left -- s10e06 -- #224 -- Run The Gauntlet

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?

While Ann's working this out we interviewed this week's Super-Special Guest - Iain Simons from GameCity. We quizzed him about why GameCity is amazing (mostly for Iain to say why we're amazing), corrected him about the GameCity prize winners and found out about what's happening at the closing ceremony. But will the Sheriff that's attending the closing ceremony be Alan Rickman or Tony Robinson?

We also brain stormed ideas for what we're going to do for this year's GameCity, then gave up and offered you (yes you!) the chance to do it for us. Not only that, but we were given an EXCLUSIVE about an attendee that has got our pushing arms twitching in anticipation. In addition to all this amazing info we had features from Super Roger World and Sega Badawi.

Cheerio,
Team OLL x

One Life Left -- s10e05 -- #223 -- Funky Collective

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).

And we needed to be on impressive journalistic form this week as our Super-Special Guest, Phil Elliott from Square Enix's Collective, used to be on Five Live. Despite previously only being used to medium wave, he stepped up admirably to FM surround sound. He told all about Collective, how it got off the ground, why it's Collective and not The Collective. Unfortunately Ste didn't get to pitch his idea for a Lara Croft karaoke card game. Fingers crossed it will see the light of day soon!

In other Ann related news she invented a new unit of measurement, managed to beat Million Pound Journalist Cara Ellison to the EXCLUSIVE review of the Kim Kardashian game, did an excellent visual joke and saw some tiger cubs. Simon became Philippa 'Pip' Warr's Moba/esports agent and Ste left his phone on.

Cheerio!
