The Game Awards, Playstation Experience & Gear VR! | #NOTplaying #58

While it was always Geoff Keighley's noble intention to create an annual awards ceremony truly befitting the games industry freed from it's Spike TV origins, what it means most of all to us gamers is a first glimpse of what we might (#NOT) be playing in a year or so's time. Indeed, the number of trailers premiering at this and Sony's Playstation Experience event in Vegas the other weekend almost put E3 to shame - and all while we're in the midst of gorging ourselves on a feast of AAA holiday releases. Ordinarily this would be enough to fill an episode, but this being our final episode of the year we decided to cover everything else that happened over the past couple weeks, including the sad passing of the Grandfather of Gaming, Ralph Baer, the resurrection of the Sinclair ZX Spectrum, the setting of next year's Assassin's Creed game and our thoughts on the first episode of Telltale's Game of Thrones opus. All this and a whole lot more on this final #NOTplaying Podcast of 2014. We'll be back in January to discuss our games of the year, but until then, thanks to all of you for listening and a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!!!
