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 — Nordic Game 2013 — #002

NG2

We said we’d never be here again. We said that Rovio needed to be far enough away that Angry Bird plushies wouldn’t be able to reach us. Ann also said that she’d remember not to wear a short skirt. Promises are made to be broken.

Which meant that we found ourselves back on the balcony looking out on the hordes of people getting green Bad Piggies hoodies (or Angry Piggies if you’re Ste) and generally enjoying the fun times at Nordic Game.

Luckily Simon managed to persuade enough videogame experts to follow him into the ladies toilets to come on the show. We start off with Parko and things rapidly improve from there with Klaus from Zoink bringing in his pink jelly arm and showing off his game Stick It To The Man. He also reads our minds and is not too disgusted with what he finds.

We’ve written a really good introduction for Will Freeman, abortion but he couldn’t be bothered to speak to us so we’re officially putting him on The List. Even worse, this means we have to bring New Yorker’s Parko back on to speak in his Brooklyn accent about his trousers (we’re always thinking of our female demographic) and why he dumped his friends (who are only ever nice towards him) to go and get some food.

Then the ever-excellent Matt Boch from Harmonix explains a bit of his amazing talk and John from Gamestick helps Ann find out what his console can fit into. Oskar from Rovio comes up to the balcony for a peace talk, but only really passes on the show cold. Oh, he did offer us jobs on the official Angry Birds radio station which was rather nice and foolish of him. Then we end with TV’s/PocketGamer’s/Jet Lag’s own Jon Jordan and try to work out the correct way to pronounce Ouya.

Cheerio!
