One Life Left — s08e06 — #176 — First Lace
It’s a rather over-used phrase but One Life Left is back. And this time we’re back for good and there’s no way that we’re going to go on an immediate three week break
due to various factors. Oh. We promise that we’ll do a full October. (Although we won’t mention what year just in case we can’t raise the bail for Simon again)
Anyway, at least this is an excellent show to go on a break with and we think it will be considered the real Olympic closing ceremony. But unlike the BBC we don’t go on about the games for all of the show. No, in fact there’s a bumper news section which almost takes up half the show. Eurogamer must be proud.
And we have a superb super-special guest in the New Statesman’s Helen Lewis (or should that be Shoe Statesman?). Is she able to defend her obviously-incorrect theory that the score of seven out of ten should be outlawed? What does she think of the term ‘Girlfriend mode’? Who does she think is better out of Justin Bieber and *Nsync? What shoe would she like someone to turn into? And did she threaten to overrule Kieron Gillen? Not all will be answered in this episode, because we forgot to ask one of them but the rest will be.
As well as Derek Williams (do we need to mention that Derek is on the episode? (Yes – Derek Williams)), Simon returns from his community service and Mick Rossiter sends in another Our Game. We also announce the first London appearance of Videogame Karaoke, if you ignore the attempt to do it at Shoreditch which we advise you do. Keep October 3rd free, we’ll put an update on our facebook page soon.
