One Life Left — s05e15 — #111 — Biology and History
Warning: the following episode of One Life Left contains Biological / Historical terms some people may find offensive. Listener discretion is advised.
As a dedicated listener to One Life Left you’ll know we often go to great lengths to secure exclusives. In this case not just by having two Nintendo representatives as special guests on the show (Wii HD confirmed???) but by going back in time and getting Ste to Creatively Direct a game that’s just been announced for Xbox Live and allowing Ann to give ask him ex-ex-exclusively about it.
What game? Chime. Chime is the first game from One Big Game, a charity initiative led by tall, handsome ex-Guerilla guy Martin de Ronde. The idea is that a developer donates a game and some production time, is backed by donations from whatever other organisations publishing that game would require (QA, audio support, and so on) and all the proceeds from sales of the game go to charity.
In this case the developer is Zoe Mode, the games studio where Ste is Creative Director. This week Ste had to do interviews with the press which left him a bit rattled by misquotes and even worse) misnaming. You could call it karma; Simon and Ann call it AMMUNITION.
Also in One Life Left One One One:
++ Rob and Rob from Nintendo chat about new Mario, new Zelda and the Wii’s virginity
++ OLL are generally furious at Activision for not getting invited to the Modern Warfare 2 party
++ Ann doesn’t seem like herself. She’s probably distracted by the play she’s in at the moment, right?
