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.

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.
