One Life Left — s04e21 — #93 — EU/AU
Desk checked: check. Guests checked: check. Live in three… two… one…
Oops. With Ste in America selling the rights to USA Life Left, it’s down to Simon and Ann to hold the show together. But following an anarchic Bike Show, there’s little time. It’s fair to say there are more errors with the desk in the first 10 minutes than the first 10 minutes of any show. But we muddle through as only One Life Left knows how: poorly.
Joined by Eurogamer editor Tom Bramwell and a genuine, actual One Listener Left from the other side of the world, it’s kind-of business as usual: if the usual is a broken studio recorder (thanks for saving the show, Derek Williams!), friendly racism, and quite a lot of actual chat about videogames and that.
Features include Derek Williams (thanks!), Mathew Kumar (thanks!) and a special As Seen On TV (hmmm), but the highlight has to be three-and-a-half minutes of Craig “The Rage”. Astonishing stuff, which’ll long be remembered after the theme rolls.
Music includes: something from Street Fighter II (or III) HD Turbo Nutter Graphics Edition, a brilliant reader-submitted song, and a dance remix of the Marble Madness theme.
Join us next week when we’ll be welcoming yet another SuperGuest. And the return of Ste, who’ll no doubt have a go at us for not making up an icon or nothing when we were only doing our best, which is patently not good enough.
(PS: Massive, massive thanks to Derek Williams who’s tirelessly pieced together bits from an intermittent feed to ensure this appears in your ears in some capacity. As such, the quality varies – the Internet’s fault, not Derek’s – but it’s uploaded here because surely it’s better than not being uploaded here at all. Thanks Derek!)
