Google Stadia & the future of videogames | #NOTplaying #194

by

Google announced more details about it's 'Stadia' streaming platfrom prior to E3 and so it's shadow loomed large over the conference. Ubisoft seem to be embracing it, as do Bethesda & Electronic Arts, but where will this leave the first party publishers? Will consoles become a thing of the past as local processing becomes more and more irrelevant? On this episode, we attempt to answer these questions and many more...

Good Omens, Line of Duty, Fleabag, The OA & more! | #NOTwatching #198

by

We're back in TV land this week with quite a mixed bag of things we've been whiling away the hours with. First up is Neil Gaiman's adaptation of his and Terry Pratchett's Good Omens, which we mentioned before in our SXSW episode. We've also been trying to see if there really is anything at all to this Line of Duty phenomenon whilst also checking out the second seasons of Fleabag, Cobra Kai and The OA!

John Wick 3, Godzilla - King of the Monsters, Pokemon Detective Pikachu & more! | #NOTwatching #197

by

It's fair to say that Keanu Reeves is having a bit of a moment right now. Everything he seems to touch turns to gold and there is nothing more golden than the John Wick franchise when it comes to sheer wanton violence. Meanwhile we have a couple of creature features catering for a wide gamut of the genre with Pokemon Detective Pikachu and Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Netflix serves up another shock twisty horror with The Perfection and we check in on our Summer Movie Wager to see how badly wrong it's going!

E3 2019 inc. Cyberpunk 2077, Watchdogs Legion, The Outer Worlds & more! | #NOTplaying #193

by

This being a videogames podcast, what else could this month's episode possibly be about? Yes. It's that time of year again where we go through all the announcements at this year's E3 event in Los Angeles, the mecca of all that is gaming. The annual event that sets the agenda for what we'll be interacting with for the next 12 months and while this year certainly had it's fair share of pulled punches as we teeter on the brink of a next generation of consoles and an inevitably subscription-based streaming future, there were enough release dates set in stone to suggest an exciting year ahead. The only question remaining is how spot-on or not we were with our predictions in the last episode...

Game of Thrones - The Final Season (Spoilers) | #NOTwatching #196

by

As so we come to it at last, after almost a decade, 8 seasons and 73 episodes, the final episodes of arguably the biggest TV series of all time. The internet has been a sea of controversy since the grand finale aired a few weeks back, but what did we make of it? We decided against going into extreme details, hence the surprisingly brief running time this week. We'll be back to talk about all things cinema in a couple of weeks...

Rage 2, PS5 Specs, E3 2019 Predictions & more! | #NOTplaying #192

by

It's been about a week or so since the last post-apocalyptic shooter came out and I'm not even talking about Rage 2 - which kicks of this month's episode, with Will having given it a good once over. Rob's found himself getting sucked into the actual real-life sport that is Formula 1 after picking up Codemasters' F1 2018 for a song and Marcus probably leads the charge with some of the wackiest E3 predictions ever recorded. We also weigh in on the recently announced target specs for PS5 and what it might mean for the next generation of consoles. Next month: listen to how absolutely bang on our predictions were. #hypetrain #e3 #etc

Our first Summer Movie Wager + Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Spoilers | #NOTwatching #195

by

We're trying something a bit different on this week's show. Fans of the slashfilmcast and those that remember the Totally Rad Show may be familiar with the phenomenon that is the Summer Movie Wager and thanks to the clever folk behind thesummermoviewager.com anyone can join in the fun. If you aren't familiar, then follow the link for a full and thorough explanation. Suffice it to say, this episode is entirely devoted to Marcus and Rob's picks for what they believe will be the top 10 highest grossing movies of the summer. It also kind of acts as a handy guide to what will be hitting the big screen over the next few weeks. Enjoy!

Oh yeah, we also briefly get into some spoilery talk about the latest season of Star Trek: Discovery after the credits, so definitely tune out before then if you're not up to date with it!

Avengers: Endgame - Spoiler Special | #NOTwatching #194

by

So the spoiler ban is officially lifted, the Spider-man: Far from Home trailer is safe to watch and judging by the humongous box office take everyone in the world who gives a crap has seen it already. You should be safe to listen to us process it then, because there's a lot to unpack here in what is surely the closest we will ever come to a finale in the MCU. It's all been leading to this, for over a decade now and over 20 films. It felt right to dedicate an entire episode to the epicness that is Avengers: Endgame. Enjoy!

Love, Death & Robots, The Umbrella Academy, True Detective & more! | #NOTwatching #193

by

Game of Thrones* might be dominating the small screen right now, but there's been a lot of other great shows this year. This week, we're kicking of with David Fincher and Tim Miller's animated anthology series, Love, Death & Robots. Also on Netflix is the adaptation of Gerard Way's Umbrella Academy and Ricky Gervais' After Life, while elsewhere we have Ben Stiller's surprisingly compentent prison break drama, Escape From Dannemora and the third season of True Detective. All this and more on another TV-focussed #NOTwatching Podcast!

*We're saving our final round of Game of Thrones released coverage for a detailed spoilery chat once the final season is done, so look out for that in a month or so's time...

EGX Rezzed, BAFTAS, Stadia, Vampire Bloodlines 2, Borderlands 3 & more! | #NOTplaying #191

by

After a few lacklustre episodes (we just hadn't had time to play much of anything new - sorry!) we're making it up to you this month with an absolutely packed show. First up we have to address some recent sequel announcements of the vampiric and borderlands variety, as well as the reveal of Google's new games streaming service, Stadia. Will's been on post apocalyptic shooter duty with Far Cry New Dawn and Metro Exodus, Rob's been getting a bit miffed by the new Hearthstone expansion and Marcus has been having a party with um.... Mario Party?

And then we're off on our annual pilgrimage to London's Tobacco Dock, for EGX Rezzed where we all got to play a bunch of different things: Ape Out, Divinity Fallen Heroes, Everspace, My Friend Pedro & much much more... And all that before hobnobbing with Videogame Royalty at the BAFTA Games Awards, the winners of which, we discuss in detail here...

Happy?

Captain Marvel, Alita: Battle Angel, Green Book & more! | #NOTwatching #192

by

Ever since Thanos clicked his fingers and Nick Fury dropped that pager shortly before turning to dust, we've been wondering what role Captain Marvel would play in and/or could do to save the MCU. And while the recent trailers confirmed she would indeed play a part in Avengers: Endgame, little was known of her origin. Until now. Captain Marvel is the first fully female fronted film in the MCU canon and after easily banking a billion dollars worldwide, you have to wonder why it took them so long. Listen on, dear listener, for our thoughts on Marvel's latest, Alita: Battle Angel, Netflix's The Dirt & Triple Frontier and a bunch of movies Rob binged on during his recent flights to the USA and back.

SXSW 2019 Special - inc. Good Omens, Us & more... | #NOTwatching #191

by

It's a bit of a special one this week, since we actually had boots on the ground at this year's SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. Amazon had an enormous presence at the event with their adaptation of Neil Gaiman & the late great Terry Pratchett's Good Omens. We witnessed the world premiere of Chris Morris's The Day Shall Come and while we unfortunately missed Jordan Peele's Us when we were there due to an accomodation mishap, we made sure to catch it locally before we recorded this. Enjoy!

Star Wars Games - Past, Present, Future | #NOTplaying #190

by

There's been a fair amount of news and controversy surrounding the Star Wars franchise and it's current usage in videogames recently, not least of which is the apparent level of de-satisfaction being levelled at EA's channelling of it. There's even been rumblings of Disney's own 'Lucasarts' trademark being resurrected from the ashes (though this episode was recorded a while before that). So here's our musings on the situation, our history with the games and other assorted ramblings... Enjoy!

Russian Doll, The Punisher, Titans & more! | #NOTwatching #190

by

Sorry for the interruption in service, but some holidays had to be taken amidst the usual schedule, which you'll here more about in future episodes. So this one was recorded quite a few weeks ago now, but the show's we're talking about are no less relevant. Russian Doll opened Netflix's year big and while we know the Punisher is cancelled now, it's second and final season isn't one to miss!

More Assassin's Creed, More Spider-man, DLC for both & not much more. Sorry :/ | #NOTplaying #189

by

It's only February and already we have some games that might be in the conversation for Game of the Year 2019: Apex Legends, Metro: Exodus, Slay the Spire, Tetris 99, Resident Evil 2... We've also had Kingdom Hearts 3, Anthem, Far Cry: New Dawn & Crackdown 3. Good or bad, one thing you can be sure of is that at time of recording, we've #NOT played any of them. We might not be on the bleeding edge of gaming this month, but at least we're honest. So instead of any insightful conversation about any games to have come out so far this year, enjoy us droning on about some DLC for stuff we've already been banging on about for ages. Because #toomanygames #gamesaretoolong etc. Hopefully we'll have played something new before E3 rolls around...

The Favourite, Velvet Buzzsaw, Oscars 2019 & more! | #NOTwatching #189

by

Having spent the first month of 2019 previewing the hell out of it, this week's we're digging through some pretty significant news stories that have kicked off the year. More Ghostbusters! More Mission Impossibles! That's no small amount of awesome. We also run through this year's Oscar Nominations - especially the one's we've seen - before moving on to some more movies we have actually seen, including Dan Gilroy and Jake Gylenhaal's Nightcrawler follow-up, Velvet Buzzsaw, Timur Bekmambetov's first of many 'screenlife' projects, Searching & what we especially hope to be the middle part of Drew Goddard's genre deconstruction trilogy, Bad Times at the El Royale.

2019 Movie Preview inc. Captain Marvel, Avengers - Endgame, Spider-man - Far from Home and some films that aren't part of the MCU too! | #NOTwatching #187

by

On this week's show we're casting our eye over some movies we're excited about coming up in 2019. Some of them, believe it or not, have nothing to do with the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the final installment of a certain 'Skywalker Saga'. Suffice it to say, this could be a truly memorable year for the big screen :)
