We’re easing ourselves into GDC week with a low-key hotel room recording, but there is nothing low-key about our brilliant guests.
Adriel Wallick fills us in on how Train Jam went, Rami Ismail from Vlambeer talks to us about his talks this year, Unity’s Kerry Turner tells us what it’s like being on a booth.
We’re also joined by The New Yorker’s Simon Parkin, Shailesh Prabhu from Cape, Mediocre’s Henrik Johansson, and Runa Haukland and Henriette Myrlund from Splash Jam.
If that’s us at low-key, imagine where we’ll be by the end of the week.

We've had no complaints about last week's best of episode (not even from Parko - we must be doing something wrong) so we'll stick with it again. This week we've got the features from the episodes broadcast on 22/05/2006, 29/05/2006 and 05/06/2006.
It's the same contributors as last week except we also have Chiara making her debut. We sent her to Japan to become One Life Left's Japanese Contributor but Ann got the tickets mixed up so she never actually got to Tokyo. Whatever happened to Chiara? We kind of forgot, we hope she's ok :(
Anyway, hopefully you'll enjoy hearing Odds On OD make predictions about the Wii, Raina Lee talking about her blossoming love-life, Doctor Watch's camping and Ms. Snacman cooking. And there's Derek and Craig showing that even six years back they were as amazing as they are now. Is that a compliment or are we saying they've showed no signs of improvement? It was meant as a compliment. Unless Parko thinks we're writing about him again, in which case it definitely wasn't.

So we're on holiday again. But this time we've tried to provide some holiday cover by delving into our archives.

E3 2011 is three weeks away. Or is it? Join Simon, Ann and games industry luminaries Michael French (editor-in-chief, MCV) and Nicholas Lovell (director, Gamesbrief.com) as they:
* Talk about E3s gone by. Learn all about the time Simon heard actual gunshots, the cost of EA's screen, and whether a $7billion party is a good idea
* Spoil E3 2011 by revealing what will be announced. We go there so you don't have to go there.
* Forget to properly credit the music tracks, most of which are from 8BC or YouTube.
Next week, Ste will be back from the pub to present another OLL spin-off. Or is it Ann Life Left? I don't think we ever got to the bottom of it.

Wait! Check your calendars. Is it a Thursday? No. A Friday? Nope. SaturdaySundayWednesday? Sorry.
Maybe it’s Monday at 7:00pm and you are listening live? Then how comes you’re on a bus or a train or running a run or something?
Yep, as a sort-of apology for our recent lack of podcasting urgency, we present yesterday’s show. If you touch it you will see it is still warm.
So, in our penultimate penultimate show of this series:
STE! Banished from the studio for being too damn sexy!
SIMON and ANN! Host!
LEO TAN! Returns.
Fine music is played, members of the games industry who have been honoured by the Queen are threatened with extreme physical violence, and we have four EXCELLENT features.
It is an okay show. 7/10.
Hey, we’re not here next week – but please don’t let that stop you from writing us words, We’ve had few suggestions on how to further our OBE/MBE/C3PO aspirations, so get cracking on those.And if you can't think of anything, write us a letter anyway - we will literally be giving away T-shirts on our next show to people what write us.
See you the week after next!
Simon, Ann (and sexy Ste). xxx

It's the final show of 2010! A time to draw upon everything we've learnt this year and celebrate what a great / terrible year it's been for videogames (which? Help us out). A time, too, to reflect on our personal triumphs and disasters and to produce one more: former or latter, it's One Life Left #138.
In this Episode (which has far more to do with parties than games):
++ Ste and Simon return from three days of drinking at All Tomorrows Parties, stumbling croak-voiced through the episode, guided by Ann and her celebratory mince pies
++ Simon interviews Edgar Wright! That is actually true. The mince pies thing is true too, but still.
++ Ann recalls the best news stories of the year and invents a new party game to do with numbers! She genuinely saves this episode.
Good on her. And good on you, too, for listening to us in 2010. We've had a wonderful time and are totally grateful for all your letters, tweets, comments and downloads. We'll thank you properly at our CHRISTMAS PARTY, which is this Saturday in London. Please come. Facebook link is here:
We'll see you there. Happy Christmas, New Year and everything else,
Ste, Simon and Ann

It's the last of our Half-Minute Hero-inspired news sections. Five stories, super-fast: it's everything you need to know about the last seven days of gaming. Although one is already out of date. Curse this modern world. But enjoy!
