When Ste's away, Team OLL will play... chiptune covers of Muse songs. Yes, Ste was scouting out the karaoke bars of Gothenburg looking for talent to attend our Housemarque Marioke Birthday Celebration. This meant that Simon was in charge of the show.
Unfortunately Simon immediately tells us that his shot his only child (with a Nerf gun) which means he probably isn't really responsible enough to run a radio show. Ann did recently become a triple Auntie so hopefully her instincts as an Aunt were enough to keep the show on track.
Replacing Ste was our SSGH (Super-Special Guest Host) Simon 'Parkinson' Parkin. He brought the class and weird umlaut things that you'd expect from someone at the New Yorker. Parkinson also spoke a little about his new book, but we forgot to ask what colour it is. This is why we need Ste.
But it wasn't just Parkinson, we also had Jack Attridge from Flavourworks on as a Super-Special Guest. He told us all about working at 22 Cans, what it was like to half-make Godus and showed Simon his latest game, which Simon then failed to tell us about. Simon even forgot to ask him what colour the game was, so we are thankful to Ann for keeping a hold on things.
Simon started to make space under his stairs for the new Steam Machine and Ann made some big steps into becoming an esports champion. Not only that but Sega Badawi informed us of some local news and we became a discount code for an amazing soundtrack album (http://hewsonconsultants.bandcamp.com). It almost makes you wish Ste could be away every week (that almost is incredibly important if you're reading this Ste).

After another bank holiday break, One Life Left is back! Hopefully you all managed to cope without us. We all went to Nordic Game, then Ann and Simon went off to Copenhagen and then Simon went off to Barcelona. Team OLL always sticks together.
This week's Super-Special Guest was Explosive Alan's Ash Denton. As you all know Team OLL has been trying to break into the YouTube/Twitch market for some time and we tried to find out from Ash the secret in monetising these areas. Apparently the secret is to make something that's unique and is actually rather good. So we're screwed then. Ash is also making the break into creating his own video game, it's all down to Mike Bithell. Which means it's all down to us.
We also got pretty worried about our listeners as it took a while for us to get any letters from them, and then we got even more worried about Guy Cocker. Ste told us about his fetish for photos of carrots, Ann got a new tattoo and Simon discovered that Martin Hollis connects everyone from a photographic perspective. And Sega Badawi updated us with the latest Local News.
