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 e ...

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 we…
 
Is this a World Record number of shows with no Ann or SSG? We're not sure but it probably is. Let's run with that. We battle on in the face of adversity and impending console launches to bring you yet another episode of the Longest Running Video Games Radio Show / Podcast in the World! It's good to talk and we love hearing from you - it gives us co…
 
We're still stuck in our homes, missing the studio and "normal" life in general as the country stands on the edge of a precipice of yet more lockdowns! Still no Ann or SSG this week but we hit the hot topics of the day plus "deep dive" into Genshin Impact and gacha mechanics. Plus all the regular features you know and love! Please keep your letters…
 
Welcome to One Life Left, a radio show about video games! There's still no Ann or SSG this week but we do start the show talking about video games this week, and there's live(ish) professional games commentary action on a few rounds of Super Mario Brothers 35 on the Switch! Also remember we love getting letters so please zap an email to team@onelif…
 
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 …
 
This week we discover the top 3 items for panic buying during lockdown were, in fact, toilet paper, hand sanitizer and Ring Fit Adventure! Who would've thought?! We also drag memories of The Generation Game back from the depths, consider buying the PS5 Tape Deck Edition and discover Ste's one and only video game purchase from Morrisons! It will ast…
 
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 (…
 
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 th…
 
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 b…
 
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…
 
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 ha…
 
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 creati…
 
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 G…
 
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 eve…
 
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…
 
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-S…
 
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 rem…
 
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 ai…
 
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 w…
 
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 remembe…
 
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% …
 
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 …
 
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 ba…
 
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 Sup…
 
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 abou…
