Outrun - Magical Sound Shower remix 3. No Super-Special Guest this week due to illness, but we do have the return of the Scants.
NURSE! THE SCREENS!!!
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. 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? 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. Surely this would be rectified in his new book? After three episodes where they were separated by illness and work, the full team were back together. Instead Ann asked him to clarify how years works and why we have seasons.
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. Ada Mills - O. When you're driving on a ceiling. 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.
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. Imaginary - Transfer Student 2. Zark - Gods of Nature.
One Life Left -- s17e05 -- -- Hours or Fewer. 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.
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 also got in a fish pun cul de sac and came up with some amazing videogame ideas that we will make our millions from.
Monotron - Chipchune 2. Ada Mills - Secret 7 3. No SSG. No Ann. No plan.
Prue Leith on her experience of TLC
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.
Klamm - SubZero 2. Solarbear feat. 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. 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.
Alternate Dementia - Grizzly. 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. 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. Gavin Graham - The Eve of the War 2. Feryl - Self Esteem II. One Life Left -- s17e01 -- -- Remainiac Mansion. 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. 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? This meant they got to talk about the most relevant topic in videogames this week, which was obviously haircuts.

It'll probably still be going into Season We had a Scanters-shape hole in the show today why does HR keep approving her holiday requests? 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. 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.
