One Life Left's Podcast

Welcome to another episode of One Life Left! No SSG this week but we learn this important lesson: "If you do something that people like, do nothing else ever again!"

Something worth having a look at is the Indie Bundle for Palestinian Aid - link below - that is chock full of wonderful games at an amazing price: At the time of writing it includes 1019 games all for $5!! It's currently raised just under $563k and has 2.5 days left to run so check it out.

Meanwhile, do you have any E3 speculation, dear listeners? Let us know on our Discord server (link below) or at team@onelifeleft.com !!

Welcome to a special (recorded on a) morning edition of OLL!

No SSG but Ste was approached yet again by another "mystery" listener this week, possibly whilst in a supermarket, while Simon looked on from behind a crate of... something...

Meanwhile there are yet more Switch Pro rumours, riding on our coattails!! Still no mention of the triangular screen, though!

What do you think of this "morning" edition of OLL, dear listeners? Let us know on our Discord server (link below) or at team@onelifeleft.com !!

Hello, dear listeners! Welcome to the Podcast Edition of the World's Longest Running Video Game Radio Show! Quick notes from me this week as I am, admittedly, doing this while I should be "working"...

No SSG again but there's plenty of news, letters and reviews to get your teeth into! Yes, I did copy and paste that from last week - don't judge me!

Now is a good time to hit the OLL Discord server in anticipation of Ste adopting the server users (Discordians? I think that term is taken but it could be apt...) as some sort of free QA department to test his new game! Was that his plan all along, dear listeners??!

Dear listeners, we present to you the latest episode of One Life Left. A special edition - nay "Diamond Edition", as it were. Today we are honoured to be joined by not one but two Super Special Guests - Dominik Diamond & Darren Wall - in a lengthy interview about life, the universe and a TV show from the 90s that you might have heard about called GamesMaster.

The intrepid duo have a book being funded on Kickstarter as I type: GamesMaster: The Oral History. We talk about that as well as the burning question of why Simon was overdubbed on his commentary appearance all those long years ago! Links for our guests, along with their Kickstarter, are below.

For those who may be joining us for the first time, we are One Life Left! The world's longest running radio show about videogames. We air on London's Resonance 104.4 FM on Monday evenings with the show's podcast coming out on Wednesdays (mostly). Please do write in with your gaming questions (though we don't give out tips and cheats like on GamesMaster. Normally.) to team@onelifeleft.com

It's the mystery/scandal of the year (so far): what is the clicking noise heard on episodes of OLL? Who is the mystery figure who raised the question in the first place?? How is Ste bumping into people while on lockdown?! Are our correspondents real??! These questions, and more, might be answered in today's episode of the World's Longest Running Videogame Radio Show, dear listeners!

I promise there is still loads of videogame related chat, albeit minus SSG. Meanwhile the date has been set for the next online Maraoke: Friday March 26th. Link below to the Maraoke Twitch channel.

It's Wednesday again! What? Already?! Time seems to be zooming by, dear listener. It's as if the universe itself wants to be rid of 2020! However, according to theoretical physicist Carlo Rovelli, time is an illusion and the perception of its flow doesn't correspond to physical reality! Before the Big Bang there was no time! Or space, for that matter, but if there had been would that have meant the entire campaign of a recent Assassin's Creed game could be played through in an instant?!

These questions, and many more, are not answered in this episode but Cyberpunk 2077 is out now and we have a good old natter about that amongst other, non-theoretical time-based shenanigans. We also have an SSG this week in the form of Sam Collins from UKIE!

Don't forget that this coming Friday (18th December) is the (Online) Maraoke Xmas Party!! Starting at 8pm GMT here: https://www.twitch.tv/singmaraoke Bring your own drinks and snacks of choice!

Hello! No SSG again this week but there's news, letters, reviews and general video game related banter galore! Meanwhile, Ste offers to Save Your Soul by offering to hear your confessions! Links for more info are below... Plus, as mentioned in the show, here's Phil the (Under)Caretaker's full review of the Xbox Series X:

---

Here's my cutting edge review of the Xbox Series X, offering in depth and personal analysis that would make Digital Foundry mad with jealousy!

I'm sure I'm the ideal target demographic for next gen in that I don't have a 4K TV, nor had any previous interest in getting one. I initially only made moves to get the Series X because my original Xbox One was on its last legs with days firmly numbered. I became more determined to bag a pre-order when one of my older brothers passed away in August – this coming just 4 months after we lost our Mum to Covid-19 in May. I had three older brothers but this one in particular introduced me to gaming, amongst many other things (like Star Wars, D&D, Ghostbusters and swearing). We already had a black and white, multi-game, Pong clone in the house but I can still remember the day I went home from primary school to find he’d bought an Atari 2600 that blew us all away – this would’ve been around 1983/84 so I’m pretty sure he got it cheap, post-‘crash’. Playing on this glorious technicolour, albeit blocky, graphical experience quickly became a family spectator event, similar to whenever we rented a video from the shop down the road. He later picked up a Commodore Vic-20, then a C64 and later an Atari ST (my best mate at the time had one and that swayed our loyalty for the Atari/Amiga wars to come). So, basically, video games and my brother went hand in hand. They were one of our things and, despite him not being an active player for the past few years due to ill health, he was very much an active spectator and you could tell he was still awed by even the slightest advancement in the technology, still clearly remembering how far we’d come from the tech we had in the early 80s. So, no, I certainly didn’t need to go next gen just yet but considering the year we've had I felt allowed to treat myself, not that I’m trying to justify the spend! And my brother would’ve approved, I’m fairly certain. It’s gaming as a deeply personal, connecting, activity.

Anyway, after a week and a half with it, I've found the Series X to be an impressive piece of kit. It’s a leap similar to (but bigger/more than) when I went from my original PS4 to the PS4 Pro. Everything that should be enhanced for the Xbox One X and XSX just 'is' (apparently as long as the Devs/publishers have approved it…) with differences being noticeable despite my lack of 4K telly – improved textures, frame and draw rates being the noticeable differences along with load times. It's bloomin' fast, which you'd expect from hardware like this! Resource hungry games like Assassin's Creed: Odyssey, Valhalla, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Elite: Dangerous load up from a standing start much quicker than on the old Xbox One - we're talking seconds rather than minutes - plus "Quick Resume" is very good indeed and makes "getting a quick game in" much less hassle. Yes, I know we've had it on phones, tablets, PCs and, in a way, the Switch for years but, you know, better late than never. There are still bugs in the system though – I’ve noticed that AC: Valhalla certainly used Quick Resume for the first week or so but doesn’t anymore. Microsoft have said some games have had it disabled while they fix things so I assume that’s what has happened here. Luckily I’ve not had any of the other reported issues with my day one tech – hopefully writing this doesn’t jinx that! I’ve not suffered any random shut downs or disc drive failures, or noisiness. In fact, the system is very quiet indeed but, yes, it runs hot. As a PC gamer as well, I’m used to that, though. Nature of the beast. It’s certainly not ‘burning’ hot, though, and has never had smoke billowing out of it like a chimney... Size wise, it’s not a huge distraction sitting on my TV unit – It sits next to my telly like one of the monoliths from 2001: A Space Odyssey only much less imposing. It’s about as tall as the PS4 Pro when stood on end and just happens to be a bit wider.

The controller is... an Xbox controller. It feels both very familiar and also a little bit different, like someone has been moving the furniture around while I've been out of the house... It feels a tad smaller than the Xbox One controller and the sides seem to be angled inwards a little more (or it feels like they are!) The 'grips' are hard plastic so I'm not sure how effective they'll be in the long run and the D-Pad is the “satellite dish” variant from their Elite controllers which I always avoided but, OK, it's not too bad in practice!

It’s been widely reported and moaned about on social media that, yes, there is a distinct lack of unique launch titles and, sure, that is the case but I went in eyes wide open knowing this. I picked up Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla which I could only imagine takes about an hour to load on a last gen machine and probably runs like a 3-legged donkey. In black and white. Allegedly. On the Series X it loads in no time, runs smoothly and looks lovely (you could view it as Assassin’s Creed does Witcher 3 with Vikings. Vikings!!! 7/10). It shows promise and potential for what is to come and as likely as night follows day follows night we all know it won’t be long before some amazing games come along that will take full advantage of the tech.

With the Series X, it's definitely evolution rather than revolution. A kind of "PC Gaming Lite" and I’m completely fine with that. With not having to work out a whole new system whilst at the same time having something set up to handle the next 7+ years of new gaming, as well as a catalogue of games stretching back to 2001? I'm very happy with that. It also doubles up as an innovative fan heater which could be a welcome boon to some as we enter the cold winter months! 7/10

Well, after a good run of SSGs, this week sees us return to a cozy (virtual) fireside chat between Ste and Simon, but now we're officially in the "Next Gen" there's news aplenty to get through!

Meanwhile, the next date for online Maraoke has been set for December 18th. This will also double up as the (virtual) OLL Xmas Party, maybe even with a (virtual) Secret Santa! Link below, more info to come!

Well, it appears none of us ended up becoming the next President of the USA but, for the third week running, we have a Super-Special Guest: James Parker from Ground Shatter Games! Three SSGs on the run! Is this the new normal??

Meanwhile, the next generation of gaming has begun! Yesterday! Did you get a new Xbox this week, dear listeners?? Phil the (Under)Caretaker did and he's very happy with it so far, though this might be being swayed by the ailing state his original Xbox One was in... Anyway, let us know your thoughts on the new next gen and gaming in general at team@onelifeleft.com and your letter may be read out on a future episode. There are no prizes but you'll get a warm fuzzy feeling inside!

Well, dear listeners, who would have thought it? For the second week on the trot we have a Super-Special Guest on the show!! Zach Weddington joins us to talk about his new multi-part documentary, Arcade Dreams, about the 100 year history of arcades and arcade games - links below!

In other news, we prepare to enter another "lockdown" here in England whilst over on the other side of the pond, nobody knows who is President of the USA yet (at the time of me typing this...) It could even be me! I mean, highly unlikely but let's not rule it out just yet... Meanwhile: Was the new lockdown orchestrated by Nintendo to try to wreck the next generation launch plans of Microsoft and Sony and drive up sales of Pikmin?? Of course not but I wouldn't be surprised if someone believes it... 

It's been a long week... Look after yourselves and stay safe out there, listeners!

It's been a long, long, long, long time - possibly even a record breaking amount of time - since we had anyone else on the show with us but here we are, finally, with a Super-Special Guest! This week we are joined by Brynley Gibson from Systemic Reaction! 'Nuff said!

We also managed to find some newsworthy news despite it being yet another quiet week, likely due to some new consoles being released or something. Though we're not being sent any freebies so maybe we won't mention them...

Hullo! Still no Ann or SSG but we battle on regardless, two stalwarts of the gaming industry vs the post-covid world! Here is episode 3 of the "Lockdown Season", or episode 24 of season 20, or episode 409 in total (not including Lost Episodes etc...) - a subject that could be debated by future historians for years upon unearthing an archive of OLL episodes on a dusty old hard drive found down behind an Ikea rocking chair that nobody seemed to want...

Speaking of, if anyone wants an Ikea rocking chair, do let us know!

After the longest break in OLL history, the team are back! Well, two of us are - Get well soon, Ann! Recorded from the comfort of our own homes, amongst other things we ponder why Eastenders tried to ignore covid, how good a deal the new Xbox is and how much money we'll spend on Nintendo with the upcoming release of "Super Mario 3D - (Almost) All (of the) Stars"! Not forgetting Simon's magic laptop cover.

Covid-19, the lockdown and coping in a "new normal" world can't keep us down!

Who doesn’t watch the Watchmen? It’s one of the most iconic questions of all time, and we finally answer it in this episode.

Other questions that we asked are:
- Did Ste get any disapproving looks over the weekend?
- What is Simon not going to do in San Francisco?
- How many consoles do the RNIB own?
- What is Simon’s latest purchase?
- What are the ingredients of pasta?
- Did Ann break her Switch?
- What is pre writing?
- How many tweets do you need to prove Simon wrong?
- What’s happening with GDC Maraoke?

No Super-Special Guest this week, but we did have Simon ‘Two Mics' Byron in the studio which we weren't expecting, and neither was he. But why was he in the studio, and did it have anything to do with Ann's big news story?

We planned an OLL Road Trip/Roadshow, but I wasn't invited so I'm not really that bothered about it. In fact I was accused of being the OLL Super-Spreader, which I could be offended by, but I think it's the OLL equivalent of the Tiswas Phantom Flan Flinger so I'm taking it as a compliment.

We also found out which of the team had been inappropriate at work, worked out if a car was cosmetic, and decided if we were on the side of Netflix or Chooseco.

The mystery of the missing stamps is still ongoing. Or, for the returning Ann, it starts today. Given the recent announcement of a price rise this means that the absent package will be worth 8.5 percent more at the end of the month than it did when they were first sent. If we don't find them by the end of the year they will be likely worth millions.

We tried to work out if Switches were stereotyped, didn't try to work out what the plural of a Switch is, Ann forgot and then remembered a very good joke, and Simon got a bit upset about the Geforce Now. We also learnt about a cross promotion that Angry Birds was doing, but given it was Angry Birds maybe we should have said it was a very cross promotion. Clever wording we know, cheers.

What do you do for videogame news when your HR director/first choice newsreader is on approved holiday? Normally we would go to our second choice local newsreader, but he was watching 1917 for his 40th birthday and couldn't really be bothered to write anything (see also: all Local News features for the past two seasons). This meant Ste and Simon had to resort to crowdsurfing the news instead. Of course, they could have spent ten minutes writing some jokes themselves, but where is the fun in that.

Unfortunately for the show, but luckily for the prospective guest, and unluckily for Simon's affections we didn't manage to get a Super-Special Guest this week. This meant that we had some additional time to talk about VR and how it has changed over the past few years, but more importantly we spoke about how Ste has damaged VR headsets over the years.

We also explained our innovative ways that we loaded games in the past, tried to work out where our post was, and had a Mario Tennis review rally.

Sorry for the late upload this week, real life got in the way for the Caretaker. In theory next week should be ok, but he also thought that this week was going to be fine so we'll see how that forecast goes.

In terms of this week's episode we didn't have a Super-Special Guest, but we did have a Super-Special Ann. We spoke about Ste and Simon creating content, we worked out what our individual Beat Saber styles were, and Simon saved the planet. Short intro we know, but if we go any longer this won't be uploaded until Sunday.

After a break last week due to illness, work, and work illness two of the team returned to the studio to open double post, say testicle on air and work out how many countries there are. And by countries we might mean a sovereign state that's a member of the UN in its own right. Or maybe we don't.

At least we had Jennifer Schneidereit from Nyamyam Games in the studio as a Super-Special Guest. She spoke about her latest game Astrologaster, which is based on the real-life story of Simon Foreman, who claimed he could cure the plague by reading the stars. Unfortunately Astrologaster is such a good game that it resulted in Jennifer being cyber-stalked by Ste (from a safe, respectful distance). Next time, if you don't want to have Ste's attentions don't make a funny game, and don't include madrigals for each character in your game. It worked for the creator of Bangman.

We also played news snap, entered a new word into the Official OLL Style Guide, and tried to figure out what E3 activations are.

It's our 400th episode! To celebrate this non-provable fact we managed to successfully not answer any questions that our listeners sent in, launched the RIO scheme, and invented a new stamp.

More importantly, we had Deborah Mensah-Bonsu from Space Ape Games on as a Super-Special Guest. She was on to advertise the already sold-out Games For Good event, which is about how games can actually be for good. We already knew about this (see: Bangman) but it's still good to hear. Plus it means that you are all ahead of the curve to book tickets for the second annual Games For Good.

Ann also managed to get some good exclusives out of Deb around what games Space Ape is working on. We're looking forward to colourful years ahead.

We all know that the people who read this part of the podcast are more involved in OLL Lore than the average (Yo) Joe, so you might be able to answer a question that Team OLL have never been able to successfully do. Does a new season of OLL start after the Christmas break, or only after our summer holidays (like school)? Our methodology has changed over time, which means that we've been going for nearly 14 years yet have 20 seasons under our belts. 21 if you count this as a new one. Which we aren't. Yet.

But anyway.

Our first show back for a new decade sees the full team in the studio to talk about New Years parties, the best way to make roasties, and how we would all check games. We also had a news quiz, found out that Ste is a snitch and had a live GDC Maraoke update.

Next week is our 400th episode. Unless you count those OLL Knights episodes, or the literally unbroadcastable ones from GameCity. Anyone want to become the Official OLL Librarian?

We're writing this in a rush so that the episode gets uploaded before half past. Therefore this will be a very short introduction.

It's a full team episode with two Super-Special Guests. SSG One is Luke Williams from Bossa Studio talking about their new game - Surgeon Simulator 2 - that got announced at the Video Game Awards. And our Second Super-Special Guest (SSSG) was Sarah Brin, who took us on an audio tour of Meow Wolf's immersive exhibition in Santa Fe.

Cheerio and see you next year!

It's another full studio this week as Ann, Ste and Simon welcomed Leo Zullo and Gareth Williams on the show to not talk about their day jobs. Instead we let them tell us all about Safe In Our World, which is the charity they co-founded that has the aim to promote and improve mental health in the videogame industry. They've helped Emily Richards remaster her Bafta award-winning game Fractured Minds, which is available to purchase and download on all major platforms.

In a Schaffer-centred start to the show we found out how old Lewis is, what he eats, and what time of the year it is best to wear his headphones. Simon went viral, Ann told us about her special advent calendar, and Ste sang dark songs with his daughter. But most of all, we were disappointed by Google.

War? Huh? What is it good for? Giving videogame podcasts an easy introduction when they're a bit stuck for ideas. And now it's a good idea for a card game. We had Ivar and Gundi in from 1939 Games to talk about Kards (with a K), a card game based on World War II. It allows alliances to be made across the divide, and friendship is always the main aim of One Life Left. Just ask Keith Stuart and Simon Parkinson for proof.

Ivar and Gundi told us how 1939 Games was started, how easy is it to get a grant from the Icelandic government, and what it was like moving from CCP Games to 1939 Games. Kards has been in early access since April, but will be officially launched in February. It's going to have a physical card version as well as a computer one.

It was a super full studio this week as Ann didn't have secret work to do, Simon wasn't doing secret work in Tenerife and Ste didn't have to lecture any sleeping students. We also tried to work out the mysteries of the University of Chichester, remembered how good looking the Bitmap Brothers were, and clarified how comfy Everyman cinemas were.

It's literally a two man crew in the studio this week as Ann was away doing work stuff. And whilst Simon was back from Tenerife he sounded a little distant at the beginning. Luckily this meant that Ste could use this space to develop his range of videogame journalist impressions in his latest attempt to become Rory Bremner. Rory B-REM-ner, if you will, and you probably won't.

We found out what Simon had been doing in Tenerife, Ste moved into the world of triple-A games, and we took the opportunity to literally settle some old scores. Clever wording we know, cheers.

As the Team went into the studio they took a moment to do a quick roll call. Ste - check. Ann - check. CD with the theme tune on - definitely check. Simon - Simon? Anyone? Simon? Apparently Simon was in Tenerife, but it was unclear if this had been cleared with HR. If you tune in next week this mystery will definitely be solved (assuming we remember it).

There was also no Super-Special Guest this week which meant Ste and Ann could talk about the most important subject in videogames over the past seven days which as we all know was: What was the most boring thing we have done recently?

We tried to work out if Ann had AR glasses, were fully entranced by Ste's Noita chat, and nearly went back on our letter ruling from last week. But we didn't. Team OLL has made a unanimous decision and we will stick with it, even if it affects our content levels.

The full team came into the studio with sufficient time for the show to start, only to find that the mixing desk didn't want to play fair. Was it upset that we didn't have a show last week? We may never find out. This did mean that this week's episode is one minute shorter than usual, but we increased the quality of the rest of the episode by 1.7% so you won't see any difference (statistic provided by Ann Scantlebury).

We managed to get Tom Vian from SFB Games in to talk about Tangle Tower, their latest release, and Snipperclips. Both games were launch titles for Apple Arcade and the Switch respectively so we had lots of questions about how what it was like dealing with Nintendo and Apple. Tom tried his best to answer those questions, without ruining any future relationships. Tangle Tower is a murder mystery game that's also available on Switch and Steam. There's also a soundtrack available, and we played some of it on the show. But more importantly, how do you make your own Snipperclips joycons?

There was also confusion about if the Playdate console had been released, Ste had an update from Reboot Develop, Simon might have finally got baseball out of his system (but his Switch habit is getting out of control). Best of all, we had a Damo update.

After last week’s transport trials we were happy to see the full team in the studio in time for the episode to start. But which one of us missed a flight in the past seven days? And which of us took advantage of the free cable cars that were available thanks to Extinction Rebellion? And did Ann get some shots?

There was no Super-Special Guest this week, but we took that as an opportunity to clarify if you needed to wear pants while playing videogames. We also found out if Dexter listens to One Life Left, worked out who was who in Ann’s family, and which of Ann’s naughty grandparents disgusted her the most with their videogame antics.

There was some confusion about the location of a letter that Tim Miller sent in, we thought Simon had found it, but maybe he didn’t. And we requested that our listeners send in cakes to the show, which works for Test Match Special. Just don’t do what a listener did with a cake that they sent to Mike Mendoza. That did not end well, or broadcastable.

The full team was back this week for almost the full episode. But which of the team let us down and came in late? Was it Ann, who finally got to show Simon her new party trick? Was it Ste, who managed to get confused as to what skeuomorphism is? (It’s like Link’s Awakening all over again) Or was it Simon, who has had a terrible week in videogame baseball? The answer is held within this episode. And gets answered within the first ten seconds after the theme finishes.

Luckily there more to this week’s episode than that. We also had live Fortnite updates, worked out which games company is going to be our next big score, and found out which of the team has been the closest to firing a gun.

And if you’re a tv company looking for a new brand to option, could you contact us as soon as possible? We’d be prepared to put you in our Apple Arcade family if that helps.

The episode was recorded on 07/10, or One Life Left Day as we always forget to say until the 9th, at which point the relevance of it has dissipated somewhat. Ah well. There’s always next year.

It’s another Ann free week unfortunately as she was ill, but she had managed to send us the news so we were not as stuck as last week. Plus we also had a Super-Special Guest! George Perkins from Super Rare Games to talk about the Switch games that his company releases in a physical form. We asked him how far in advance he knows what games Super Rare are going to release, if he keeps track of the second hand value of Super Rare’s releases, and which developer is the most attractive.

We also found out Simon’s system for remembering names, Ste told us if he was into mobile games, and we tried to work out where Alphabear 2 was on the Google Play store. If you have any leads let us know.

With Ann being out of the country in Iceland how will Ste and Simon cope? Well, Simon became obsessed with sleep tracking so it was business as usual for him. Ste however went a little off the rails and this episode became his Simon Mayo confessional. We’ll get HR to give him a verbal warning for bringing the show into disrepute.

We also spoke about unions, found out what game Simon launched the crowdfunding for, Ste explained auto chess, and Simon had a live reveal of the new Colonel Sanders.

We’re nearly caught up from our Season 20 backlog. The next episode will be uploaded this Thursday and then after that every episode will be released on Wednesday. There will be no exceptions to this rule.

What do you do when one of your co-hosts is off and another one is stuck in traffic? Ste showed one of the potential options available in this week’s episode. Luckily Ann managed to get to the studio before her text did, which meant that we’ll have to go back to solo Ste in a future season.

No Simon meant that there was no Super-Special Guest, but Ste and Ann had lots to talk about. They made an executive decision to change the format of the news, which is something that will rock videogame radio shows for years to come. The major development of the week is that Marioke changed its name to Maraoke. This news didn’t sound too big, but now you can see it written down you realise that it actually looks different.

We also found out that Ann had been watching mucky movies, Ste’s students were doing a game jam on seasons, and Ann forgot what FMV stood for. Again. We also announced the launch party of Maraoke, which is taking place on 18th October at the Loading Bar. See you there.

It’s a full team this week, but Simon is poorly so it’s more of a team 2.5. Except we had Jack Attridge on as a Super-Special Guest which boosted us up to 3.5. He was on to talk about Erica, which is also the name of his newest game. Or is it a movie? We try to work out the differences between the two. More importantly, is it a lean back or a lean forward experience? Even more importantly, what does Jack’s Mum think about Erica?

We tried to work out if we were a family, checked what we were collectively subscribed to, and did an investigation into if piracy was still popular. Simon undid one button too many on his shirts and Jack told us that he was on the BAFTA jury for best narrative game. Oh the stories he could tell!

So we’re back with season (BEEP). And we have been for the past three weeks, but we forgot to tell anyone. Included in that list was The Caretaker, which is why you’re going to have four episodes over the next two weeks. Aren’t you a lucky bunch of listeners?

There was no Simon this week, which meant this episode was a bit Taylor Swift heavy. There was no Super-Special Guest either, which meant we told you everything we knew about Death Stranding. And being our first day back meant we also got to tell you What We Did On Our Holidays.

Ste told us about his Gamescom adventures, showed us his astounding powers of recall, and also why he’s going to do a Billy Madison. Ann is now a non-Endless runner and spoiled Succession (luckily off-air). We also gave Cassetteboy a great idea for a new video, explained why Spotify has ruined the art of the hidden track, and told everyone that Marioke is changing its name. Except that was two weeks ago Grandad!

Sorry about the delay in uploading the podcasts. Normal service will resume in two weeks. Although, by us failing to upload the episodes two weeks after they aired you could argue that normal service has already started.

The last day of radio term always sees a bit of giddiness among the team. The presenters don't wear their usual radio uniform, you can bring your board games and videogames into the studio (although Simon always brings his Switch in), and Lewis Schaffer brings in cakes for us all to enjoy. But one thing Team OLL never does on the last day of term is go skiving. UNTIL NOW.

Ann decided that instead of doing the final news of the season, she would rather be driven to Italy by her in-laws. This meant that there was a news-shaped hole in our show. Normally this would result in Simon and Ste seeing what was on Eurogamer, but they had planned ahead and got Sega Badawi aka Caretaker Ben down the Skype line to tell them videogame news that was slightly too long for the news jingle. Considering that Ben couldn't hear the jingle and kept losing his place on his script it worked alright. He even provided us with some Nintendo Karen updates.

Once Ben was gone, Ste and Simon had the chance to talk about what they are planning to do over the summer and tried to clarify what the big Gamescom rumour was in 2018. We also booked our first guest of Season 20, made some Marioke announcements (and some pre-announcements), and joined the Slayers Club.

Cheerio and happy holidays!

As we all know, One Life Left is recognised throughout the world as the longest running videogame radio show and also as one of the most modest radio shows. But sometimes we need some personal thanks. A little realisation that we've done a good job. And this week's Super-Special Guest Nicholas Lovell gave us some Super-Special Thanks in the acknowledgments of his latest book, The Pyramid of Game Design. Getting unconditional thanks is really something that we don't deserve. Ahem.

Nicholas was on the show to talk about his current role, which is Games Director of Hot Wheels ID. It's a way of incorporating your physical Hot Wheels cars with an online gaming experience. The prospect of thinking how to make this as excellent as it could be is what dragged Nicholas out of consulting and back into a full time role. But mostly we tried to think of songs that we could write about Nicholas, as we made a promise to him last time he was on the show.

We also found out what Simon expects from a barbeque, if Ste is drifting, how long adult humans live for, and what Damo has been up to. The most unusual fact we discovered is how often authors get their book sales data. Although the ‘swipe before they wipe' fact was quite close.

It's a bit weird talking about yourself in the third person isn't it? Luckily this week's Super-Special Guest Ben Hall had no problems with that, but as he doesn't work in the games industry our interview with him went to places that we don't normally go to. If you need to know what the best train is in videogames, if you can get from Peterborough to Croydon without changing, and who would be our train getaway driver then this is the interview for you.

We also celebrated Amazon Prime Day (which just seems to get earlier and earlier every year), found out what Ste has just bought, try to work out where Ste is working, and we got very confused by the Kong family tree.

No Super-Special Guest this week means we get to look at the items that we've neglected for the past few episodes. A look in our collective spam folders shows that we had been missing out on other SSGs, genuine job offers, and opportunities to improve parts of our bodies. So if you've been really annoyed at us for not responding to an email we're sorry. Although if you're on The List you might be waiting a little bit longer for that reply.

There was some pre-Develop chat, with two of the team potentially making themselves homeless. Simon spent part of last week meeting the gaming aristocracy, by meeting Lord Sir Charles Cecil (presumably at one of those exclusive members' clubs). We also found out about another distant relative of Simon's, we believe that we're now up to four countries. Let us know if you're a Byron and you need to buy any Switch games when you are in the UK.

As the world's longest-running videogame radio show we took the opportunity to talk about Stranger Things, and tried to work out how much of a journalist Ann is. We also clarified if adults played Fortnite, and worked out the Slay the Spire can be played on mobile.

It seems that it was only last week that we had Ann Scantlebury on as a Super-Special Guest, and now she's performing stylish and professional jingles for one of the coolest radio stations around. That's what being on One Life Left as a Super-Special Guest will do for you, so feel free to let us know if you're interested. Being a presenter? The benefits of that are still yet to be realised.

You'll be pleased to know that there's a Damo update in this week's episode and we also get to confirm if Richard Bates is a nice person or not. However, the debate about what constitutes projectile vomiting is still ongoing.

We also find out what Ann's office is like, think of ways to make money off Telltale, learn about emergent gameplay in Dead by Daylight, and try to get Klamm to notice us. Klamm: Please let us be the One Life Left that you keep referring to.

Cheerio!

With Ann missing at the beginning of the show and no Super-Special Guest booked, the lads took full opportunity to talk about football and if computer referees are better than computer-assisted human referees. It was actually more philosophical that it seems when we've written it down. However, Ann eventually showed up which gave us the opportunity to interview her about the latest developments at her work, without her actually telling us what her work is. We didn't even get to find out the colour.

Luckily, Ann had provided us with the latest videogame news for the start of the show, albeit with a massive chunk of news missing. Ste started the show with wet headphones, Simon was starting to move across to his summer wardrobe, and he also provided us with very specific Switch travel gaming tips.

We also found out what Damo is up to, who Ann's favourite Eurogamer is, and worked out how much money Alex Fleetwood owes us. Finally we've found a way to monetise. Monetise means blackmail right?

Only 379 episodes in and we finally get a Super-Special Guest in with the required knowledge of 90s boybands for Ann and Ste (plus a reluctant Simon) to talk about Busted and Westlife for at least twenty minutes. That SSG was Felicia Prehn from Nopia. She had flown in from Finland purely to be on our radio show, having the opportunity to finally see Westlife after over twenty years of being a fan DEFINITELY didn't have anything to do with it.

Did we talk about games during the show? Well, Felicia did teach us something about Pokemon Go, we sort-of worked out why Fortnite is called Fortnite and we decided who was the best out of Tony Gowland and J-Parks - but mostly it was boyband chat. It was probably for the best that we spoke about videogames right at the beginning of the show for once.

Luckily, the game that Felicia is working on for Nopia is related to boybands so all this music chat was adjacent to videogame. The provisional title of Felicia's game made Ste (or Ann) audibly gasp with admiration when they heard it.

And to top it off we played a track that Felicia made herself. We think that this is the only time that we've played a song on air that the SSG had made. Well, apart from that time Parko released a Marioke style cover of Duran Duran's ‘Hungry Like The Wolf' to be about his new book.

Keep 16th August free for a very special Marioke. Although all Mariokes are special aren't they?

After an episode with rave reviews across the board we shipped Sarah Brin back off to America (mostly because the reviews shipped Sarah Brin), brought Simon back for a full episode and allowed Ste in the studio. What will the reviews make of this episode? They’ll probably say it’s a bit too Muse heavy, that there weren’t enough live updates from E3 and that the chip music was slightly strange. So a classic episode of One Life Left then.

As you’d expect from the world-famous OLL team, one of us was in MCV last week. Now we just need to get that coveted centerfold photoshoot that all podcasts/radio shows want to be on. We’ve been practising our poses for over fourteen years, or is it thirteen? We forget. Or try to forget.

What else happens in this episode? Simon announces a new purchase along with a potential second purchase, we let you know what music we listen to whilst we work, there’s a mini Marioke announcement and we confirm if mountains can be metaphors.

One Life Left is known for diversification and we have now moved into the True Crime category, as - one by one - our presenters slowly go missing during the show. Firstly, Ste fails to show up. Then, Simon vanishes at the halfway point. But who could the suspect be? Is it Ann Scantlebury, the HR director annoyed with the time off requests that the team make? Could it be Sarah Brin, the not self-proclaimed Queen of Cool? Or could they both have had other engagements?

Hopefully it was the latter as we don't want either Ann or Sarah to be in trouble. Plus Sarah was our Super-Special Guest and none of our SSGs have ever been up before the beak (checks list of SSGs, places a question mark against Parko). Sarah was in to talk about her work in Santa Fe with MeowWolf, how you make an immersive installation, if you can touch a laser and answers the age old question: which came first, the Wolf or George RR Martin?

We also find out which is the best city in the world, Ann spoils the Death Stranding trailer, we work out what VR is better than, and asking if any of us have been sued gets a surprising answer from Libby, sorry, Sarah.

After a two week absence from the airwaves for two of Team OLL, the full team was back in the studio. Ann had been in Scotland, Simon was in Sweden, and Ste… well it's probably for the best that you didn't hear what Ste was up to last week.

Our Super-Special Guest this week was Ground Shatter's James 'J Parks' Parker, who has been a regular SSG on the show over the past few seasons. We spoke to him about Rico, which has now been released on all major platforms since he was last on One Life Left and is doing rather well. J Parks told us the differences when releasing games on multiple systems and which system has the most vocal users. He also jumped out of a plane wearing two pairs of glasses after going to GDC, which is what most people feel like doing after GDC. Wearing two pairs of glasses that is.

As a new mini feature Ann went a bit ASMR when telling people about their award, if this works let us know as we're always looking for monetisation ideas. We might also be having a fight with a rival OLL crew, so please let us know any fighting tips. Simon saw the saddest thing in the studio, and connected to that we found out what mode of transport Ste is really into.

After a break for Easter, the One Life Left team is back! And then going on holiday the week after due to May day. And maybe the week after that. It’s what you expect from us: Poor quantity over poor quality.

But anyway, this week’s episode saw Ann play real life Neko Atsume, Ste talked specs-y to us, and Simon made throwing a stick even more fun than it already is. We also had more Red Hot Boscombe Chat, worked out the optimum amount of people to play Towerfall with, and read out some classic emails.

Do Americans celebrate Easter? That’s the main question that we ask in this week’s episode, the first since our pre-Spring break. Ann was away, so instead of catching up on over six weeks’ worth of videogame news Ste told us what he did in Croatia, his new haircut, and what games are best to play in a hospital. Oh, he might also make a small announcement too.

We didn’t have a Super-Special Guest in the studio, but we did have Bertil Hörberg on the Skype line. Unfortunately we found it very difficult to pin him down on how many videogames he has made, but fortunately he was very willing to tell us all about Mechstermination Force, which is Contra meets Shadow of the Colossus and is available now on the Switch. Bertil is the brains behind the excellent Gunman Clive so you know it’ll be a good game.

We also found out who or what is the best replacement for a talk by Yu Suzuki, what game Ste is potentially the best in the world at, and work out once and for all which is the best out of Reddit and Twitter.

See you in two weeks time!

What better way to celebrate Simon coming back from Sweden than by having one more show before we go on a six week break? There are probably lots of better ways, but unfortunately this is the option that we have decided upon. The fewer of two evils as some might say.

With the need to prepare everyone for an OLL shaped hole in their life for the next few weeks, we didn't have a Super-Special Guest on this episode. This meant that we had extra time to fully speak to Simon about the toilet situation in Sweden, and invent a new feature for the show*. There was also time to discuss the first Marioke held at Loading Bar that wasn't hosted by Ste, a run through of the history of deck building games, and we made a mini GDC announcement.

We went interactive this week: Feel free to send us the videos of you doing the dance that Ann explains the moves to, or your drawings of the person that she describes. We would say that we'd give a prize to the best in each category, but given our track record in giving out prizes that might be a bit of a reach.

Cheerio and see you in six weeks!

After a week's absence due to various illnesses OLL returned to a studio missing one team member, who was away in Sweden. But which one was it? The mystery gets solved fairly early in the episode, this is why we're a videogame radio show and not a true crime podcast.

As Dry January has been replaced by Drenched February we had a Super-Special Guest - James Chew from Failbetter Games. Their new game Sunless Skies came out two weeks ago so we thought we'd ask him what it's like developing a game world with an existing fanbase, what it's like moving from being a fan of the series to helping design it, and how does James' degree help in his videogame career.

We clarified the Marioke franchise situation, went CD free (only one edit done in post, but more were arguably needed), tried to work out if Ste was an octopus, and spoke about the iphone a lot.

The final episode of Dry January sees the team inspired with interactive ideas. We announced the date of our Resonance FM fundraising date (Friday April 26th), and came up with an artistic competition. Hopefully when we go through the entries next week it will work as an audio event.

We've also moved into sponsorship. Instead of monetising our own brands, we've decided to monetise Rami Ismail's Gamedev.World conference. Hopefully it will turn out to have over 8,501 meetings during the event otherwise we'll not be getting our money's worth.

There's blockchain chat (we really need some Super-Special Guests soon), Simon works out how to beat loot boxes, Ste updates an old joke, and Ann helps trademark a new brand. This time next year we'll be millionaires! Which means that Rami will be a millionaire on top of the billions he already has!

Another episode with the full team and no Super-Special Guest. Luckily Simon was on hand to give it a catchy title that is in no way brand infringing.

This week Ste broke electricity, Ann told all about her teeth, and Simon bragged about his data allowance. He also potentially spoiled a film for Ann, but it turned out Ann had already seen the film in question, she'd just forgotten that she had seen it. Luckily, her personal Siri-style assistant Matt managed to explain it all.

We also discussed how we would copy Ariana Grande, the last Marioke (which had a world first for karaoke, and found out that Ste is a jock.

A full team this week as Simon returned from his trip to Japan, however there was no Super-Special Guest. Maybe Roll 7 will be on next week, but we've not been given any guarantees either way.

Without a SSG in this episode Simon and Ste took the opportunity to talk about their latest favourite game: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Although it might sound more like complaining about getting old, rather than talking about the latest game in an established videogame franchise.

We also found out what Ste can say on air, who is making games for Ann, and Simon found out who loves the Switch more than he does. And - what's this? - a challenger approaches! Or a random entrant into the studio at least.

No shoes chat this week for those of you tuning in, but we managed to get some paneer chat for those of you interested in a vegetarian Christmas. Ann also kept us up to date with the current leaders in the mince pie ratings and gave good Christmas music advice.

However, maybe we should have asked this week's Super-Special Guest - Tim Summers - instead. He's a musicologist who specialises in videogames and lectures at Royal Holloway, University of London. He told us about what videogames can teach us about music, which games do good generative music, and how videogame music will change in the future. He will also be helping us with our new game genre that we came up with in this episode.

We also worked out if Ste is the same as Rockstar, found out what game Tim played with his Dad, and Ann made two very good jokes.

It's another two-person One Life Left this week as a Japanese-bound Simon swaps his seat in the studio with a recovering Ste. Also, with the main SSG booker being away we failed to get an SSG this week, but we did have an SSS making an appearance instead (Super-Special Siri).
The important thing to note this week is that tickets for our Christmas Marioke are on sale, and are selling pretty quickly. It's being held at the Loading Bar in Dalston on Friday 14th December at 7pm. The real gaming Santa will be there!

We talked about subtitles in videogames, shoes sort-of in videogames, and tried to figure out what we can buy from Telltale. The OLL Style Guide gets a further update with the correct pronunciation of Cyber Monday. Does anyone have the full contents of the OLL Style Guide? We really should have been keeping track of all the entries.

There's one person that Team OLL always want to know what they're up to. That person is Milo, best friend to Peter Moulinex, and one-time caller to the show. Unfortunately we've not heard from him in quite a while, but could this week's Super-Special Guest Kostas Zarifis from Rogue Sun Games help in our quest?

Potentially, but mostly he wanted to talk about his new game Tin Hearts (living in just one mind - another Marioke idea for anyone who actually reads this text). It's a VR game that is Lemmings meets A Christmas Carol, which sounds really great: We always wanted to be able to press a button that would blow up Scrooge and friends all at once. Oh no! It's not like that at all, it's even better than what we thought.

Kostas told us more about Tin Hearts, why he chose to start it in Early Access, and how VR is coming back. There's no Ste this week as he was poorly, but Simon managed to create a new Xbox, and Ann is looking in people's houses, as well as singing most of her review. We also moved into the exciting world of shoutouts.

No Super-Special Guest this week due to illness, but we do have the return of the Scants. She's feeling a bit better after a week off, which meant Ste and Simon were feeling a bit better as they wouldn't have to do the news.

Without a Super-Special Guest this meant that the team could work on their personal projects. This involved trying to work out where Ipswich was, remember who Ann made eat an egg, and clarify if Mike Channel can drive in real life.

We also updated the OLL Style Guide with the correct pronunciation of Prima Games, and Simon bought another thing that he definitely won't like. There was also discussion of the latest YouTube videogame shows that are available, which allowed Simon to make a really good joke.

Another Ann absence this week, which would normally mean that Simon and Ste start buying video game equipment that they don't need, but this time they took to opportunity to learn something about themselves. Which was mostly their middle names.

Ann did manage to write some news which Simon read out, but he did point out that no jokes were included. Unless there were and Simon was news-shaming Ann. Or maybe Ann just improvs the jokes as she's reading the news out?

This week we had the very prepared Nicholas Lovell on as our Super-Special Guest. He was in to talk about his new book - the Pyramid of Games Design - which is aimed at people who make videogames, those who are trying to switch to service-based games, and anyone starting in the industry. He told us how you get people to become superfans of your games, how many layers a game needs, and if losing the narrative in videogames is a Good Thing.

But to be honest, we were a little disappointed that Team OLL wasn't acknowledged in Nicholas' previous book The Curve (which invented FIFA's Ultimate Team mode). Surely this would be rectified in his new book?

We also found out that Ste has been spying on Mrs Graham, how easy it is to put on a bandana (Hi D Perry), if P Moulinex invented Fortnite, how Ste tells the temperature, and Simon couldn't remember.

After three episodes where they were separated by illness and work, the full team were back together. Ste and Simon were particularly happy about this as it mean that they didn’t have to worry about who was doing the news.

This week’s Super-Special Guest was James Parker from Ground Shatter, who wanted to talk about the Switch port of SkyScrappers. Instead Ann asked him to clarify how years works and why we have seasons. It’s really annoying as SkyScrappers is the definitive fighting game where you climb up a collapsing building, and we know how crowded that genre is. We managed to discover if it works with the Flip Grip, if a clever title works in print or only on OLL, and what categories should be in the Switch eshop.

Simon is still buying more stuff, and even persuaded Ann into joining him. Ste is still having microphone issues, Ann worked out why the Pope doesn’t like Apple, and James proved to be a good aide memoire for Ste.

Cheerio!

... When you're driving on a ceiling.

With Ann absent due to non-OLL related work, it was left to Ste and Simon to man the studio. Luckily for Simon's wallet they didn't have to fill the space buying more peripherals for his Switch as they had Leo and Al from Wired Production on as Super-Special Guests. Originally they were on to talk about Leo's history in games, but we rapidly changed to talking about their latest game, GRIP: Combat Racing, once we realised what was literally at stake.

GRIP:Combat Racing is a combat racing game. Once again, what comes after the colon explains everything. It's inspired by the classic Playstation game Rollcage and sees cars driving on the ceiling. Oh wait, that's what the GRIP bit stands for. It turns out not everything is explained after the colon. We asked how GRIP improves on Rollcage, what it is like getting the fans involved, and what should be put in a collector's edition.

Due to Scants' being away there was a news-shaped hole in the episode, and we proved that three men are definitely not the same as one Ann (and we repeated a story - we should really listen to the episodes that we're not on). We also discovered if Leo likes sand, Simon gets another peripheral for his Switch, Ste discovered a Swedish cure for cold, and we had some Red Hot Intellivision Chat.

After last week with no Ann and no SSG, what will this week bring? Well, Ste had been taking Marioke to the streets of LA and unfortunately caught a bug so couldn't be in the studio. And Simon? Well, he was away but we are never really sure why he needs to take so much time off. Perhaps he bought a new docking station for his Switch.

So it was Ann running the studio, and she wasn't by herself. Helping her out was the NSSSG (Not So Super-Special Guest) Ben Hall. Ben hasn't made a game, but he does upload the podcasted episodes of One Life Left and is also writing this sentence now which is very meta. And, as well as Ben, an absent contributor made his return to the airwaves.

We managed to cover the important gaming topics, like which VR game is potentially the Best VR Game Ever, which FOTS caused Brexit, what game can Ann not pronounce properly, and how will Ben save the programmers at Rockstar? We also got in a fish pun cul de sac and came up with some amazing videogame ideas that we will make our millions from.

No SSG. No Ann. No plan. All Ste and Simon.

It's the standard lads night in show - Simon persuades Ste to buy loads of gadgets that he doesn't want, Ste gets to talk about latency (let's talk about you and me), and we forget that with Ann away someone needs to do the news.

We tried to figure out where we have broadcasted from and offered ourselves to other locations (but NOT to other stations), worked out the OLL style guide for where we stand on Parko, Ste made his students do opposites, and Simon is buying lots of items for his favourite new addition to his household.

It's extremely worrying to be writing about a videogame lawyer. If we get anything wrong about them then we could be sued for our Marioke Millions, it's why we've avoided having Phoenix Wright on the show. Luckily this week's Super-Special Guest, Tim Davies from Sheridans, set the bar (clever wording we know, cheers) for being a good lawyer so we took the opportunity to ask him lots of purely theoretical questions that we have to legally state we were not asking for a friend. We manage to cover loot boxes, found out which publishers are good for developers, and when can you legally shake a client.

Ann is still a bit poorly, but this time it seems to be because she licked that Switch cartridge last week. Remember: All of Team OLL are professional trained cartridge lickers, things can go wrong. Please, don't try this at home. Do it outside of the home, as the Switch can be a portable console. Ann is away next week (this is unconnected to the cartridge licking), so if you fancy being an SSG that week (or any other Monday) then drop us a line at the usual address.

As well as all that we had Simon coming to the studio all fresh after a hair cut, we came up with a great non-IP infringing idea, and Ste found out what the kids know about videogames.

As befits a new season of One Life Left, we missed recording an episode last week. This was due to the combination of Simon being in Portugal and Ann getting ill through bad videogame news. There was the potential 'third way' of podcasting by having a 'One Ste Left' episode but luckily the OLL National Executive Committee overruled him.

However, this meant that the full team was in the studio this week to talk to our Super-Special Guest: George Perkins from Super Rare Games (Super-Special Rare Games is still available at Companies House). They make games that are usually only available on the Nintendo eShop as actual physical games. Not only that, but you get EXCLUSIVE extras like crosswords, signed trading cards, and pebbles instead of cartridges (the pebble thing might only be a monetisation idea that Ste has had).

We also did some live unboxing, live tasting, updated the OLL style guide, and found out that Ann is going to Comicon. But mostly, we were worried about Simon. Him liking a chiptune is fairly unusual, but not buying a Nintendo product as soon as it's available? Something must have happened in Portugal.

Annoyingly our attempt at doing a Wii U/EU pun for the title of this episode didn't really work when it was written out. So just make your own ones up, as long as you say them out loud. But anyway. One Life Left is back! After a summer break of about six weeks we were back in time (give or take a few weeks) for the start of Parliament so that we could finally talk about Brexit. We got Ian Dunt, the host of the Remainiacs podcast and Editor on politics.co.uk, on as a Super-Special Guest to talk about Brexit but he kept wanting to relate it to videogames. Doesn't he know that we're Europe's only radio show about politics? Or did we get confused from our time away? That's possibly the answer. As well as our red hot Brexit chat we all did our usual spoken-word essay on What We Did In Our Holidays, updated the OLL style guide with the approved pronounciation of 'troll', and let you know which popular beat combos are good at Mario Kart. Ann told us her criteria for a good videogame, Ste gave us a Crimewatch update on his stolen laptop and one of our readers gave Ian the ultimate moral dilemma (great cars them moral dilemmas).

It's the final episode of One Life Left before our summer break which means that it's mufti day. Actually, did everyone have a mufti day at school or was it a regional thing? Well everyone brought games in for their last day didn't they?

Despite there not being an England World Cup match on Monday Simon still didn't make it into the studio and he also neglected to book a Super-Special Guest so it was a Scanters and Ste Summer Special. This meant they got to talk about the most relevant topic in videogames this week, which was obviously haircuts.

There was also discussion about immersive theatre, a solid rain joke from Ann, we finally confirmed if we were HAPPY TO PAY FOR GAMES, and the Ste and Microphone feud continued. It'll probably still be going into Season 17.

We had a Scanters-shape hole in the show today (why does HR keep approving her holiday requests?) which meant that Simon and Ste needed to do the news this week. Do you think that they planned ahead and wrote the news stories well in advance or decided to throw this week’s Super-Special Guest a curveball and asked him what he thought was good news?

It's a fairly easy question to answer, but we felt that Jim Rossignol from Big Robot would be the perfect SSG to be able to cope with this challenge. He's well known for his polite manner and definitely thinks that swearing isn't big (robot) or clever (robot). Jim also took the chance to tell us about Big Robot's soon-to-be-and-sort-of-already-released fifth game The Light Keeps Us Safe which is available on Steam Early Access.

There was some talk about how the OLL style guide differs to Eurogamer's, we tried to find out why we keep getting excluded from the important debates, and Jim remembered which reviews he forgot about writing.

What does QVC stand for? Great products at great prices. OK, let's make this clearer: What do the letters in QVC stand for? You will find out the true answer during this week's episode of OLL. Which stands for One Life Left - a poor videogame radio show on a great radio station.

Our Super-Special Guest was Alex Fleetwood from Sensible Object, who has passed most of his training to be on QVC. He's been busy making Fabulous Beasts, then renaming it as Beasts of Balance, adding a new feature to Beasts of Balance (which is a potential OLL EXCLUSIVE), before moving onto Alexa powered board games like the travel trivia game When In Rome. Alex has also been trying to make Bingo more exciting, but annoying things like image rights have been getting in the way.

We also found out if Simon is annoyed by time travel, if Ste gets on with his microphone, and if Ann liked her hotel in Brighton. And football isn't coming home either, but if this is news to you only as a result of listening to this podcast then you probably weren't that bothered about it’s attendance anyway.

We had the full team in this week but no Super-Special Guest. We were going to get Jesse Lingard on to talk about Fortnite, but he was busy for some reason or other.

After our mini-break last week we came back to a very hot studio and Ste had made the mistake of not wearing shorts (luckily he didn’t make the additional mistake of not wearing trousers). We discussed what we got up to during Saturday’s football, Ann successfully workshopped a joke, Ste ordered some games in contradiction to his previous statements, and Simon has made some money.

We also found out that soon we will find out if we are more important than QVC, that Simon is a Catfish, and that at least two of our Significant Others listen to the show live. You can too at 7pm on Resonance FM.

Simon was back this week but we didn’t have a Super-Special Guest through no fault of our own. Honest. This meant that Ste had more time to talk about Mario Tennis Aces and if he loves it more than he loves Smash Bros. Simon decided to go headphones free and has discovered literally hundreds of pounds hiding in his attic (it’s the cupboard under the stairs that is where the real worthless items are).

We also found out that we are now on Spotify, Ann discovered that you can put JoyCons on your body, and we managed to solve Brexit through loot boxes. We debriefed the team about Marioke in Berlin and how it is different to UK Marioke (mostly it’s to do with smoking).

WARNING: Ste will be mostly talking about Lumines next week so be prepared for that.

Sometimes One Life Left is scheduled against big events, which means that some of our listeners usually have to catch up through these podcasts. Luckily this week all that was happening at 7pm was an England match - which pretty much everyone agreed was a 7/10 performance.

For some reason Simon was away this week (which HR are investigating), but he managed to book Luke Williams as a Super-Special Guest before he went off. Luke was on for his fourth or fifth appearance and took his third or fourth chance to talk about Worlds Adrift. Except this time Worlds Adrift has finally been released. As it’s an open world MMO we found out if Americans are nicer than Europeans, why Team OLL was missed off Bossa's big sky ship event, and if the game broke in a good way.

We thought of a great mod for The Last of Us 2, Ann decided she was going to become great at Fortnite, then realised that she was already a legend in Worlds Adrift, Ste showed even more love for Smash Bros, and we found out if Luke enjoyed swinging.

The full team is back in the studio for the second week in a row, so that should mean that we had no issues with playing jingles correct? Assuming that the Caretaker made the edits that needed doing then the answer is yes.

Our Super-Special Guest was the games designer and writer-for-hire of Little Mix fanfic Holly Gramazio. She clarified some points of order that related to our first episode of this season as she part-curates the amazing Now Play This festival and runs design superstar company Matheson Marcault - our favourite gaming company with the initials MM (at least until Media Molecule are on the show). We find out all about Holly’s new Kickstarter project Art Cards, which cards were rejected from Art Cards, whether people prefer to be Arty or to Party, and what border control think of her job.

Ann brought her backpack into the studio and also found a great loophole for doing E3 news that she should have implemented twelve years ago. Simon has a new purchase that he hasn’t opened yet and jointly proclaimed his love for Kingdom Hearts with Ste. We also found out why Ste has an Android phone. The answer probably won’t shock you.

The full team were back from their bank holiday off including Simon (who had also taken another four months off for some (literally) small reason and we were willing to answer the most important question in gaming today: Is caviar vegetarian?

We managed to get Tom and Sam from Roll 7 into the studio to tell us all about their new game Laser League 1.0, which sounds (and is) excellent. We found out what it is like to be beaten at your own game, how useful feedback from the public is (remember to send in your letters to us) and what colour their new game is. Hey - some running jokes just span multiple seasons.

We also find out that Ste didn’t want Sam to talk very much on the show, if we had a shark in the studio, try to remember if we’re on Spotify (spoiler: not yet), and find out rough Simon is with his Switch.

We’re back! And as usual for us coming back for a new season, we’re not on next week. We also don’t have a Super-Special Guest, Super-Special Simon or the Super-Special reviews theme. So normal service has resumed.

We are also proud to announce that One Life Left is GDPR compliant, which famous person an Italian Ste looks like and that Ann has forgotten her headphone and hairdo preferences. There’s also a review of how Marioke has taken over the world and we tell you all how great Now Play This was.

Not only that you get to find out if our partners are snorers or not. As we said, normal service has resumed.
