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 — Sim-On Life Left #1



No Continues is One Life Left’s off-season weekly book / game club. Each week the team discuss different games that incorporate a single theme. This week’s theme is ‘Let’s see what happens if Ann and Ste swan off to San Francisco to record some shows with Gamasutra and leave Simon to do a show all by himself’.

And the resulting show is surprisingly broadcastable. We hear about how becoming a Super-Special Guest gets you automatic membership to Noel Edmonds’ Dream Factory and the new and returning members to that factory floor are very excited by this news. The lucky people are Spilt Milk Studio’s Andrew Smith, buy information pills Savy Gamer’s Lewie P, stomach writer for hire Jamie Firth and Tom Trewhella who is a boy.

Despite Ann being away in GDC land, advice we still manage to get some news on the show as Ann’s Intern jumps off the subs bench to tell us all about excel games and what Ann thinks about Tetris. To be honest, we were just surprised that Ann has even heard of Tetris.

In addition to all this we find out what Simon thought of when we was on Gamesmaster (at least the thoughts of someone who sounds a bit like him) and we find out what Ste really stands for (he stands for nothing – he’s open to bribes).
