One Life Left's Podcast

There was no Ann this week as she’s busy preparing for her wedding (this is also why we’re not doing a show next week). We also didn’t have a Super-Special Guest, but this was just as well as they would have been totally overshadowed by our live preordering special! Yes, in the same way that Sky Sports News only does well when it is transfer deadline day, this week’s episode saw live coverage of whether the space under Simon’s stairs would see an increase in items being stored in it. But would Ste also fall under the item’s spell? And would anyone regret their purchase by the end of the episode?

Without an SSG our listeners helped fill the void by sending us loads of excellent letters. Sega Badawi also helped for a minute with some Local News. The rest was covered by Simon’s grey joycon, Ste going back to trousers and a rather crap Glaswegian accent. Oh, and as this episode gets uploaded we’ll be at Unite Europe doing a Marioke with Simon Parkinson. What will we get him to do in Amsterdam? As with preordering in The Netherlands all bets are off. And probably tops too.

Cheerio!

Blimey it’s been hot this week. So hot that the CD kept accidentally playing the wrong jingles. Yes that’s exactly why it did it this week. Nothing to do with us doing it wrong. FUN FACT: The alternative title for this week’s episode was going to be Jingle’s Rosy Rupeeland.

But instead we went for a title named after the last game that our SSG - Gwen Frey - helped make, which was The Flame and The Flood. She had just flown in from America and boy were her arms tired! We spoke to her about how her studio Molasses Flood came into being; which came first: The studio or the game; and what are the pros and cons of being a Kickstarter success. Ann also managed to get an EXCLUSIVE but it wasn’t as EXCLUSIVE as we hoped. So, more of an exclusive then.

We also got our legs out for radio, thought of another great monetisation idea and got maths wrong. Sega Badawi brought some local news and Ann got an injury at third base. Ouch.

Cheerio!

After a frantic week in the UK, we got the team together to talk a bit about E3. But where was Ann? We tried to check with HR, but we couldn’t contact her either. How strange.

Luckily we had a SSSG (Selfie Super-Special Guest) that made up for our missing newsreader: Anisa Sanusi. She had been on the show before during an Ann Life Left and also during GDC, but this was the first time she got to be interrogated by the heavyweights of videogame radio shows. And she did a great job at coping with us. We found out how you can become a UX/UI designer; why her current employer, Hutch Games, are great at making driving games; and how UX differs between mobile and consoles.

As well as all that we heard about how Simon used time travel last week, had a competition for a JBL Flip 4 Bluetooth speaker and confirmed that we’re off to Amsterdam with Parkinson. And Sega Badawi could finally use the election in a story.

Cheerio!

After the events in London over the weekend Team OLL decided to take a different approach. Without an SSG (Simon was off) or Simon (he was in Barcelona), Ann and Ste went through their favourite nice games. Whilst we normally try to be as positive as possible, us being positive about so many games may disconcert you. Luckily our CD player went on the blink during the reviews section and hearing our shoddy professionalism will reassure you that we’re still the same Team OLL.

We also did a bit of wedding admin, Ann ran on the beach in Scotland and Ste found out he was a super taster. Busy week.

Cheerio!
