Greedy Wizards - Kickstarter

Simon Byron from one of my favorite podcasts, One Life Left created a two player card game and started a kickstarter. I’ve watched the video, and it seems like a really awesome strategy card game. I’m totally on board.

Yes, it’s already funded. But I wanted to bring your attention to it becasue I think it’s going to be fun. And when you’re playing it with friends, I want you to remember that you heard abuot it here.

Have you been listening to One Life Left like I suggested? If you have then you know that they are hosing a night of videogame karaoke at Nottingham Game City this year.  What is videogame karaoke? It’s just like regular karaoke but the lyrics have been rewritten so they are bout videogames.  You can see an example on the OLL blog.

Now that you’re up to speed the team is looking for lyric submissions! They have some submissions already but they are looking for more.  If you have ever changed the lyrics (or thought about changing the lyrics) of a popular song and want a (probably drunk) stranger to sing it email Team(at)OneLifeLeft(dot)com.

Europe’s favorite videogame radio show, One Life Left, now has a shared Spotify playlist with music from the show!! You can thank Ste for posting as much music as he was able onto the playlist (since the music comes from 8bitcollective not all of it is available on Spotify).

One Life Left is broadcasting tonight. Listen on their website at 7pm GMT.

I Love One Life Left

People often ask me ‘what podcasts do you listen to’. My first answer is always One Life Left. One Life Left is a videogame radio show in London hosted by Ste Curran, Simon Biron and Ann Scantlebury. They broadcast live for one hour every Monday at 7pm GMT on the radio as well as the internet. If you cannot listen live you can grab their podcast (iTunes and RSS). What I absolutely love about the show is that they are a radio show. They have weekly features, guests, and play chiptune music, all in 60 minutes. There is no other podcast like it, as far as I know.

Last week was One Life Left’s 150th episode. Congratulations team!

I started listening sometime in 2006 and they have never ceased to impress me. The team has done amazing things to keep their listeners involved and engaged. They have a christmas party every year and invite all the listeners, they attend festivals like Nottingham Game City, they have contests on the show, and are open to listener submissions for segments. For the past two weeks they have been broadcasting their show while doing a Google+ hang out, which is probably the best use of Google+ I can think of.

They’re the best. If you aren’t already a listener I hope everyone will give them a shot. 7/10.


[EDIT: Tumblr problems like whoa on this one… had to restore links, image and formatting…]

I am very excited about the return of Europe’s number one videogame radio show, One Life Left.  Maybe I’ll be able to come out and join you guys later this season.
