One Life Left's Podcast

We tried getting Lewis Schaffer on the show to be able to find out if he really does eat toilet paper and, if so, whether he eats it folded to the front or back. But really we wanted his son on the show so we could finally work out what League of Legends actually is. Unfortunately we didn’t do a great job of arranging it so we contacted the next League of Legends expert we knew: HRH Lord Sir Charles Cecil.

Luckily we managed to catch Charles in a rare talkative mood and managed to find out lots of information. He’d just been to that burger shop Simon owns and told us various tales involving topics like the Congo (he didn’t tell us what he drank there), the Gunpowder plot, religion and Turkey (the country). We even managed to get a mini-audition for a new Weather Presenter on the show due to the strange weather across the country. And there’s an EXCLUSIVE! reveal about Charles’ latest game.

Other than that we were all a bit under the weather, reminisced about buying Tamagotchis, had a LIVE NEWS UPDATE from Ste and had some Local News.

We also announced our Final Marioke date of 10/11 and announced the Christmas Marioke date of 08/12. We’ll tell you where to buy the tickets for the Christmas event soon. See you there! Apart from Simon as he’s off.

Oh and expect delays in the upload of the podcast for the next two weeks as the Caretaker is off on holiday. He didn’t even check it with HR!

Cheerio!

This episode was brought to you by the freshers’ flu. In fact, even the caretaker is writing this with a very snuffly left nostril. As a fun side quest why not see if you can count how many times we cough away from the microphone?

Our SSG (no additional S required) was James Parker from Ground Shatter. He risked our germ-filled studio to talk about his latest game Rico. It’s a co-op FPS where you kick doors and shoot men. Kind of Rainbow Six but with the boring bits removed (which depends on if you consider the non-shooty bits boring). Ste of last year would have hated this game but it’s now right up his violent street. James has even made the game incredibly timely by adding in a certain animal (that will probably be out of date in two weeks’ time). As Ann is in HR she asked a very pertinent ethical question about the baddies, but James had an apposite response.

Sorry about the different vocabulary in this episode intro. The cold must be affecting the caretaker in ways we didn’t know possible.

We also found out what Simon has found under his stairs, why Ste got sent dirty pants through the post and chatted about spiders and toilet roll a bit too much for a radio show about videogames. Sega Badawi informed us of Local News and we’ve come back from Finland via a castle in a river on an island. This is literally where videogame karaoke can take you.

Cheerio!

There’s a fable about how you go on One Life Left twice: once on the way up and once on the way down. So what does it mean if you are on the show for a third time? In Tony Gowland’s case it means that you are releasing Binaries on Switch. Tony was on as a SDSSSG (Slightly Delayed Super-Special Guest) to tell us about the (lack of) difficulty in porting to the Switch, how helpful Nintendo are and if you should make a game controller smashingly frustrating. Tony is also making a game that’s a twin stick shooter influenced by Ghostbusters, which has to be great doesn’t it?

The team had an alright week. Ste had a week of teaching and Simon got a little confused about who Ste had actually been teaching, Ann walked in front of the Patron Saint of Resonance FM and Simon’s man crush is getting worse.

We also found out that we need to find a Nick Faldo to help Tony out, that Simon can tell brilliant jokes from a content perspective and that Sega Badawi is just about managing to find some local news. And Marioke is off to Dundee on 17 November so we’ll see you there.

Cheerio!
