One Life Left

Definitely the UK's favourite radio show (sort of) about videogames.


Commissioned by London’s award-winning Resonance 104.4 FM in early 2006, One Life Left was only meant to run for six episodes.

Take that, The Man because now, somewhere around one hundred and fifty episodes later, it’s in its seventh season and grown from humbling, terrified, fumbling beginnings into one of the station’s most valued shows.

Take THAT, The Man. Also take that, British radio standards.

One Life Left: No Continues 003 — Simulation

Play

No Continues is One Life Left’s off-season weekly book / game club. Each week the team discuss three different games that incorporate a single theme. Last week’s theme was ‘Simulation’. You can listen to Episode 3 here.

Next week’s theme is ‘Platforms’. The three games chosen for dissection by NC this week are:

1. Chuckie Egg (A&F Software, 1983)
Play it here.

2. Super Mario World (Nintendo, 1990)
Best played on the SNES, of course, but you’ll be able to emulate it with no problem (assuming you own the original, of course, or whatever the spurious piracy-enabling reason du jour is). There are remakes and reissues available for the Game Boy Advance, Wii and GameCube, so I’d favour those if you can’t find the original cartridge.

3. Knytt Stories (Nifflas, 2007)
Play it here.

Play, listen and contribute to the show live on Resonance 104.4FM at 7pm on Monday evening, or we’ll see you back here for the podcast.
