One Life Left's Podcast

Team OLL is on a creative streak with season eleven. After last week's discovery of #networking, Ste decided to invent a new catchphrase. That he had been shouting to us constantly for the past ten seasons but we finally noticed that he was there. Also, those of you who write fanfic about us may be interested to know that one of Team OLL is having a sleepover at another's house. It will disappoint Stimon worshippers though.

This week's Super-Special Guest was Phil Robb from Turtle Rock Studios. We were the final stop on his world wide promotional tour so naturally we offered him a good rub down. After such a good start to the interview we then confused him about how we pronounce 'exception', he spoiled Left 4 Dead 2 for you and we found out what his co-operative and competitive shooter Evolve is going to be like. But does he swear?

In terms of features we had Sega Badawi, the second installment of Game Under and a returning contributor who isn't Derek Williams. Ste also realised that we could perhaps monetise our reviews, but then forgets about it and we also remembered to do some work on the official One Life Left game (which is to raise money for the excellent Resonance FM).

Cheerio!

It's a whole new season for a whole new One Life Left! We start season eleven with great news - we're going to China. Apparently the far east has yet to pick up on the karaoke craze and as part of our networking at our corporate event last week we have been handed an incredible opportunity. We also picked up a new joke so it was a highly productive session.

And to celebrate the new season we had a Super-Special Guest join us. And the lucky SSG was Catharina Due Bøhler from Shadow Puppeteer developers Sarepta studio. She started off fairly quiet, but soon proved to be as potty mouthed as all Norwegians are. Even worse she was highly offensive about our protege. Not Parko, the other one. The lethal one. In between her offending the nation we also managed to find some information about her excellent game Shadow Puppeteer.

In addition to Catharina we celebrated Ann being confirmed as one of the top ten women in the top one hundred women in videogames, Ste chaired a mini debate on Hotline Miami 2 and Non-Intern Simon's on/off love affair with Nintendo continued. Sega Badawi provided the latest local news and we had a new feature! Which was Duncan McKenzie's excellent Game Under.

Cheerio!

The constantly changing news reporter position saga is at an end as we welcome News Fox Ann 'Scoops' Scantlebury back after a two episode absence. Non-Intern Simon had also been away during the week enjoying the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Hamburg. But the main story of the day was how Ste managed to fight off two robbers who were on a moped. He truly is a hero. And it didn't affect him at all, well except for at the very beginning of the show.

Our SSG for this final episode of the season (don't worry - the new season starts next week) is SFB Games's Tom Vian. He was in to talk about their game Detective Grimoire and what their possible next game is going to be like. It makes Ste a little bit excited, if that helps in any way. We try to find out if Tom uses arrays in any of his games and find out how difficult it can be to communicate to your Kickstarter backers.

There's a return to surgery with Doctor Avatar and Sega Badawi provides us with some local news. Non-Intern Simon has to google 'acrostic', we find out the best spheres in games and Ann tells us how excited she is to be involved in our latest Resonance FM fund raising project.

Oh and Simon has launched Bang Man! on ios. You might not pick up on this during the show.

Cheerio!

It's a new year so it's time for a new look Team OLL! Well maybe not but Ann was ill on Monday so we had to come up a solution that didn't involve Sega Badawi. Luckily we found one in the Million Dollar Journalist (TM) Cara Ellison who was linking up live to the studio from Paris. She provided us with Le News Du Gaming, coped well with the slight lag in connection and told us how amazing Paris is. Stay amazing Paris.

However, despite Cara being both Super and Special she was not this week's Super-Special Guest. That honour went to Ben Maltz-Jones who works for voice over specialists OM UK. He told us how difficult it is doing voices for videogames, spoke a little about the Game of Thrones Telltale game and we tried to get him to tell us examples of bad voice overs in videogames in an attempt to get him blackballed from the industry.

We also found out what it's like having Christmas in Ramsay Street, workshopped some Cockney rhyming slang and discovered the official French nickname for Batman. There was a feature from a demoted Sega Badawi and we unveiled the OLL Project For 2015.
