E3 2018 - Part 2: ...The Bad & The Weird inc. Rage 2, Death Stranding & more! | #NOTplaying #182

by

Yeah. It does feel like a while ago now, especially now the World Cup is over, but we decided to hold back some of our E3 coverage to help nurse the summer drought. So here it is: Our guide to some of the weirder, wackier and outright painful moments of E3 2018!

Best Movies of 2018 (so far)! | #NOTwatching #173

by

Since the summer's been well and truly hijacked by football this year, we thought it might be a good chance to catch our breath and give you a half-time report on what we consider to be the best movies of the year so far and give a few movies a shout that might not make it all the way to our end-of-year lists.

E3 2018: 5 reasons why the next decade of gaming is so exciting

by
There were as many promises as there were firm release dates at this year's E3, and while we're a ways from the next generation of consoles being released, the future of gaming is looking very bright indeed.

So with the dust beginning to settle on the big conferences and casting an eye beyond the solid releases coming out in the next year or so, I was thinking I could probably narrow it down to 5 reasons why I'm looking forward to being a gamer for the next decade or so...

These are the games that really made E3 for me, despite how little we saw of them...

Cyberpunk 2077



For years the Deus Ex series was one of my favourite game series and with the Mankind Divided saga cut short, rumour has it that Eidos Montreal have been re-assigned to work on an untitled Avengers initiative.

The only other series of games to come close to my love of all things augmentation would be CD Project Red's The Witcher series, particularly it's most recent installment. It is heartening to know then, that my new favourite developer/publisher will be tackling a property that embraces many elements of the late Deus Ex franchise and blessing it with their expertise in epic open world adventures.

If the E3 Trailer shown at the end of Microsoft's keynote this year is anything to go by, expect a spectacularly dense and colourful playground to indulge in.

Starfield



They might ship their games full of bugs, but you can't fault Bethesda for their ambition and this tease for their first original IP in 25 years seems like it's literally reaching for the stars.

I can't be the only one wondering what a Bethesda style RPG in space might look like. Is it even an RPG? We simply don't have enough to go on, though the design of the star-shaped construction we saw in the trailer looked like it might at least have one foot in reality. A slightly more stylized take on The Expanse perhaps? Who knows... it's exciting to know where Bethesda are boldly going though...

Elder Scrolls VI



...and beyond Starfield, of course there will be another Elder Scrolls game and again there's so little to go on and with this game being in 'pre-production' as Todd Howard calls it. It's safe to say we won't be seeing this game for the best part of a decade...

But with Skyrim available to play on everything but the kitchen sink right now, and a new mobile/VR game, Blades, coming out soon, the world isn't exactly in dire need of a another full scale Elder Scrolls game. Still, it's nice to know that work has begun on it in earnest.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 



Many prayers were answered at last year's E3 when the existence of this long-awaited sequel was teased with a CGI Trailer and almost the same thing happened again this year, albeit to a somewhat diminished reception. We did see some early gameplay though, the scale of which continues to impress.

Jedi: Fallen Order



Ironically the lowest key announcement of what is surely the most imminent of the games mentioned here, Jedi: Fallen Order is to be the title of Titanfall creator Respawn's Star Wars game, which is set to be with us by the end of 2019(!).

While I have no doubt in their ability to deliver a fantastic Star Wars action experience after enjoying the traversal and inventiveness of Titanfall 2's single player campaign, I worry that the experience might be a little slight given how long they have to make it! Fingers Crossed.

And those are my 5 top reasons to be excited about being a gamer for the next 10 years or so. If you'd like to hear about some of the games at E3 that will be with us far sooner, then check out the first part of our E3 coverage on this month's #NOTplaying Podcast!

Solo - A Star Wars Story | #NOTwatching #172

by

To say Solo: A Star Wars Story's reception last month was lukewarm would be an understatement. Despite generally favourable reviews, Lucasfilm's latest Star Wars Spin-off failed to ignite the box office. Was the summer scheduling to blame? Or is this just a movie nobody wanted? We attempt to answer those questions on this week's #NOTwatching Podcast. And this week we promise there are absolutely no spoilers, because Marcus still hasn't seen it! Look forward to a more extended conversation at the end of the year, if we can still remember it...

E3 2018 - Part 1 inc. Fallout 76, Spider-man, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Cyberpunk 2077 & more! | #NOTplaying #181

by

It's that time of year again, when we set our mice and controllers down and have all our disposable downtime taken up with trailers and interviews and gameplay demonstrations of games we won't get to play for month or even years. That's right! It's E3 2018!!! The giant videogame conference that there's absolutely no need to attend in person unless you're one of those lucky people that get's to see Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay behind closed doors... (grumble grumble :( ) Not that we're jealous at all, since we still got to see an awful lot of exciting new stuff across the various conference streams and youTube clips appearing in our feeds all last week.

As the message at the top of the show will inform you, we did go on quite a bit. So long in fact that we've decided to split this into two shows. This first part catches the hype-surf with all the things we're most excited about, while in the second part we get a bit more critical and explore some of the weirder & wilder parts of the show. So look out for that in a few weeks time. Until then, enjoy part 1 of our extensive E3 coverage! :D

This week Marcus and Rob discuss their feelings on the Deadpool follow-up (We did our best to keep spoilers after the credits this week!), before launching into a bunch of TV stuff, including some news about the future of The Walking Dead, some anime stuff on Netflix, the final season of The Strain & a whole lot more!

Westworld, High Maintenance, Happy! & more! | #NOTwatching #170

by

Westworld is back and so we're really #NOT talking about that very much this week, what with all the spoilers and things that are ripe to be exposed. We have been watching a lot of other things though: High Maintenance is back for a second anthology detailing the highs and highs of the more bohemian side of NYC, while Netflix's Happy! streaks a bloodstained cartoony trail across the very same place.

Avengers - Infinity War, A Quiet Place & more... | #NOTwatching #169

by

It's all been leading to this. Over the course of many comedic enterprises some of the most familiar TV actors have assembled to create the wonder that can only be, Game Night. Sorry, that's not right. How about how many seasons of The Office it took for the guy who played Jim to make what could be the best horror movie of the year and what will most certainly become an annualized franchise? No... that's not it... How about a little film called Avengers Infinity War? That's kind of a big deal isn't it?

The Walking Dead, Santa Clarita Diet, Hap & Leonard & more! | #NOTwatching #168

by

It's been a sketchy few weeks for TV after the deluge of excellent Sci-Fi Netflix threw at us at the beginning of the year. The Walking Dead has managed to shuffle it's way from bad to worse. There is an alternative way to get your undead fix however, in the form of Santa Clarita Diet. The final season of Love ended on a high note and there have been plenty of decent comedy specials to check out too. If Netflix didn't already own your soul, then it's only a matter of time...

Far Cry 5, EGX Rezzed 2018 & more! | #NOTplaying #179

by

On this month's show we're still in Ubisoft-land, albeit this time of the more far and crying persuasion, as Will does his best to convince us that's it's worth going back to the series for a fifth time. Meanwhile, Rob and Marcus have some stories to share from the recent EGX Rezzed show at London's Tobacco Dock. All this and more than you can throw a Switch at, on this latest #NOTplaying Podcast!

Ready Player One | #NOTwatching #167

by

On this week's #NOTplaying... I mean, #NOTwatching Podcast, you'll have to forgive our wires being crossed for a second there, because this week we're discussing Steven Spielberg's latest movie Ready Player One. Sure, there's a linear narrative in this piece of passive entertainment, but it concerns a world of endless possibilities and is as obsessed with pop culture as we are. As of the current time of writing, Marcus has seen it three times! The 2nd and 3rd times since this episode was recorded, but listen on and you'll get the idea. 3... 2... 1... etc :)

Annihilation, Mute, Jessica Jones, Sneaky Pete & more! | #NOTwatching #166

by

On this week's show, we're talking about both Movies & TV, since Netflix seems to want to utterly dominate the conversation on screens both large and small. So we kick things off with Alex Garland's Annihilation, starring Natalie Portman and Duncan Jones' troubling Mute before reuniting with Jessica Jones after what feel like perhaps too long and Amazon's Sneaky Pete, which is just fine, if that's enough for you...

Ghost Recon Wildlands, Alien: Isolation, Gang Beasts & more! | #NOTplaying #178

by

Nothing much new this episode, but Rob did get a free copy of Ghost Recon: Wildlands with his shiny new microphone (which he utterly failed at recording this month's particular shambles of an episode with) and Iain's been playing it too, so we go on at some length about that. Also: Marcus played something called Gang Beasts and Rob managed to get through the entirery of Alien: Isolation - which is something of an achievement given how long that game has been in his Steam Library...

On this week's show we finally get into some games we've actually been playing after all the round ups and previews at the turn of the year. Rob & Will have been cracking into the controversial Kingdom Come: Deliverance to a greater or lesser extent, Marcus has been playing some boardgames, Will is still very happy with his Nintendo Switch and Rob managed to make some serious headway with his pile of shame over Xmas.
