David Jaffe comes up with an excellent idea to fix videogame journalism. (ASIDE: He doesn't. He seems to think that directly funding the journalists will fix things. If it's perceived that a journalist can be swayed by advertising, free gifts usw. then wouldn't that same journalist be swayed by the thoughts & opinions of their funders instead? A truly independent journalist will be independent no matter what their funding)

Another great article from +Leigh Alexander. No buts (clever wording I know, cheers)

Also, more reasons as to why I'm glad I became an accountant and not involved in the world of videogames.

You know that Zelda game where you connected four DSs to the GameCube and then played each other on the big screen? This is like that, but about sports. And you don't need four cables,

I've written a blog. As usual there's a point where I give up and come to the end before I actually make the point I wanted to make. This is why I'll never become a proper writer (also because I'm far better with numbers than words).

I made this!
Hello Google+!

The eight of you who have us in one of your circles and the eleven of you who +1'd us are part of a very special club. In fact I don't think Ste even looks in here so feel free to spread some insider gossip +Leo Tan.

It seems the experiment of OLL Golld has come to an end. It might return on our next holiday, but we might just retain radio silence instead. Luckily we're back with a brand new live episode! Three Super-Special Guests and only a few mentions of J Ennis. It's good to be back.

Anyway, how are you lot doing? Are you keeping ok?

It's a website about Amiga Power. My name is in the credits somewhere. Look!

New OLL.

This one was using my recording of the stream as Stels couldn't send me the official recording in time. Can anyone tell the difference in quality between the two?

We're still trying to find out if Parko actually did get the tattoo (http://instagram.com/p/MNX1NhHXgg/). Probably more on this next week when he's on the show.

This one was a bit of a stressful one because I was in Coventry for a work meeting. I needed to do some work which meant that I/work paid £28 so I could use the hotel wi-fi. I decided to then set Streamripper recording while I had a swim for the first time in 10 years.

Except I forgot to hit start on Streamripper. Luckily Stels had the official Resonance recording, but I couldn't listen to it until I got home on the Tuesday. There was also an edit to make which delayed things further.

Therefore getting it uploaded on Wednesday was a minor miracle. Enjoy!

It's a new One Life Left!

EXCLUSIVE BEHIND THE SCENES EDIT NEWS:
I cut out the news jingle coming in too early and when they accidentally played Derek's song too early.
I also was ordered by the evil +Derek Williams to change the version of his song that was played (although I probably got my revenge by muffing up the ending a bit)
And the ending was changed as it skipped and crashed on the live stream
The crash sound after Ian doyouinverts' song was kept in as it was the only bit where Stels said the song title.
I also kept in the Skyrim and karaoke talk as otherwise it would be a twenty minute episode.

Cheerio!
Ben

For the one person who doesn't use Twitter (although I suspect Chris subscribes to the podcast feed anyway), but if you weren't aware the latest OLL is out!

Exclusive caretaker commentary:
I had to make one edit to this episode. If you can hear where the edit is made then you get a prize.
