One Life Left!

Syndicate content One Life Left's Podcast
One Life Left is a radio show about videogames, only not really. We love games but we take them precisely as seriously as they deserve. 99% nonsense and 1% heart-stopping brilliance, they are all supposed to be fun and so are we. We have news, reviews and special guests, sure, but we also play game-related music and we have stupid game-related features like inappropriately dark-hearted poetry, gambling tips and chart news from a market stall. We're on the wonderful Resonance 104.4FM at 7PM every Monday and on the internet all the time, ever, right here.

One Life Left -- s20e06 -- #391 -- Double After Fine

Wed, 10/16/2019 - 10:58

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.

Cheerio! Team OLL x

One Life Left -- s20e05 -- #390 -- OLL Day

Thu, 10/10/2019 - 10:18

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.

One Life Left -- s20e04 -- #389 -- David Dickinson’s Real Meal Deal

Mon, 10/07/2019 - 11:02

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.

One Life Left -- s20e03 -- #388 -- The Game of The Name

Thu, 10/03/2019 - 12:12

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.

One Life Left -- s20e02 -- #387 -- Shaking Hands with the Lecturer

Mon, 09/30/2019 - 11:14

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!

One Life Left -- s20e01 -- #386 -- The Acquisitors

Fri, 09/27/2019 - 09:46

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.
