Team OLL is on a creative streak with season eleven. After last week's discovery of #networking, Ste decided to invent a new catchphrase. That he had been shouting to us constantly for the past ten seasons but we finally noticed that he was there. Also, those of you who write fanfic about us may be interested to know that one of Team OLL is having a sleepover at another's house. It will disappoint Stimon worshippers though.
This week's Super-Special Guest was Phil Robb from Turtle Rock Studios. We were the final stop on his world wide promotional tour so naturally we offered him a good rub down. After such a good start to the interview we then confused him about how we pronounce 'exception', he spoiled Left 4 Dead 2 for you and we found out what his co-operative and competitive shooter Evolve is going to be like. But does he swear?
In terms of features we had Sega Badawi, the second installment of Game Under and a returning contributor who isn't Derek Williams. Ste also realised that we could perhaps monetise our reviews, but then forgets about it and we also remembered to do some work on the official One Life Left game (which is to raise money for the excellent Resonance FM).

Thom has been locked in all week while Matt works away in Manchester, so this one's a bit odd. Birds are manipulative masterminds, holgrams are real...kind of and scientists are great at reminding you of things you already know from the TV about coma patients. More importantly, what's best on Netflix right now? Is "Fant4stic" looking less than fantastic? What is a scientifically classy night in Manchester? And has Thom ruined cake forever?
We have the answers to your questions, and even more science, in this new and improved episode.
Why do women have sex? We find out, using the YSEX? questionnaire. Also, how to stop the ‘thin ideal’ messing with our minds. And forget Star Wars - it’s time for Sperm Wars: are men turned on by pornography that depicts ‘sperm competition’?
Most women in the media are skinny, and consumers are taking this 'thin ideal' to heart. But what happens if we tell them that men prefer larger women?

New year? Check. New kit for recording on? Check. New tunes? Check. Same old blethering? Hell, yeah! It's true – I'm finally back with a
laptop (thanks, Glen!) and a new external soundcard to create the new TFL recording studio. As I found during the recording though, I need to rearrange my studio workspace to avoid having to lean in to reach the mic & knackering my back… I also have to apologise to The Persian Leaps, as my rustiness meant that during the recording I failed to tell you what their songs were called. All that aside, it's bloody good to be back!
