Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide & Rocket League | #NOTplaying #105

by

It doesn't happen too often, but on this week's show we're talking about a game we have ALL been playing together! Fatshark's take on the co-op Left 4 Dead type genre has been on our radar since PC Gamer gave it their Game of the Show award at PAX a few months back, so we've been meeting up on a weekly basis to put it through it's paces. Meanwhile Iain's also been playing Rocket League which it seems will be making a fair few end of year lists, and deservedly so. It's all about the multiplayer on this week's #NOTplaying Podcast!

The Walking Dead - Season 6 | #NOTwatching #76

by

There's no question that this latest season of the never-ending zombie drama had some of it's strongest opening episodes to date. It's also made a few mistakes though, one of which had to be the handling of a certain character's fate. It's all been cleared up since we had this brief discussion, which took place in the wake of Episode 3. Iain still hasn't finished season 5 so it's not that spoilerific - speaking of which, we also go into spoiler culture in general a bit here too. It's an extra shamblin' #NOTwatching Podcast this week!

Fallout 4 | #NOTplaying #104

by


The arrival of any Bethesda RPG carries with it a certain weight, but in a year jam-packed with giant open world games, Fallout 4 might be considered nothing more than the cherry on top. Todd Howard & Co are never ones to sit on their laurels though, having added a whole bunch of refinements and an almost unnecessarily deep crafting system to what is just as much a sequel to Skyrim as it is the latest entry in the Fallout franchise. It's all about the pip boys and super mutants on this week's extra-apocalyptic #NOTplaying Podcast!

OCD in the Wasteland | Fallout 4 | #NOTplaying

by

I'm not clinically diagnosed with OCD, but I do worry about myself sometimes, especially after last night's first true experience of the 'freedom' of Fallout 4.

I'd just completed a fairly significant leg of the main campaign involving a particularly harrowing trek through some quite inhospitable area of the wasteland. I bring up my Pip Boy and activate all my objectives to see if there's anything on the way to the next main objective (this would all be a lot more colourful if I didn't want to spoil anything, but this is essentially how I play these games) and I realise one of the objective markers is where I'm standing. I hover over the waypoint and it tells me I need to deliver an item to a chap I met when I was last in central Boston.

Surely I must already have it then, I think, considering why the marker would be at my exact location. I look through my inventory and the only thing like it I can find are some items that I crafted using what must have been the raw materials this guy sent me to find and retrieve. Hell, I wouldn't even know about said item if he hadn't tipped me off. These materials are exceedingly rare it would seem. The last in the world. There's no way I'll be able to craft them or break down my created items to get the components again.

But there it is - the winking quest marker. What if I missed one? There were a whole bunch of them when I was there - I didn't even think about how rare they might be when I started using them as components for my mischievous creations. And yet the need to complete my objective fills me with the desire to double check. Off I go back to the location where I found said items and a frantic search begins.

The building in question is completely wrecked so it's like navigating a maze finding the exact place again and when I do I'm looking under cupboards, jumping onto worktops, searching desks and drawers. Nope. Nothing. Looks like I was more thorough than I thought.

So I'm going to have to live with that unfinished miscellaneous objective for the rest of my time in Fallout 4... to be honest though, I'm not sure the guy who sent me for the merchandise could really be trusted with it... I'll be putting it to much better use I'm sure...

Check out next week's episode of the #NOTplaying Podcast for a hell of a lot more about Fallout 4, but in the meantime you can hear our latest episode below...

Crimson Peak & The Martian | #NOTwatching #75

by

In the last few months we've been utterly spoiled by some genre cinema from true legends of the medium. On this week's #NOTwatching Podcast we take a look at Guillermo Del Toro's tragically mis-marketed Crimson Peak and Ridley Scott's The Martian, widely regarded to be his greatest film in years!

SOMA | #NOTplaying #102

by

On this week's #NOTplaying Podcast Patrick takes us into the murky underwater horrors of SOMA, Frictional Games' spiritual follow up to Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Fear not, for he was good enough to not spoil anything for the rest of us who have yet to play it. Consider this something of a belated Halloween present if you like...

Spectre | #NOTwatching #73

by

Rob made a spectre-acular effort to catch the latest 007 romp on opening day last week so he had a few things to get off his chest, not least of which were the conditions of the cinema visit itself. As for the movie - you'll have to listen to find out what he thought of it. The rest of the guys weighed in on the controversy surrounding the movie, including Daniel Craig's recent remarks on returning to the franchise and who might be a good replacement. All this and pussy galore on a suitably shaken (but not stirred) #NOTwatching Podcast!

Star Wars Battlefront | #NOTplaying #101

by

On this week's show we're talking about our first impressions of Star Wars Battlefront during the recent Open Beta. Were we charmed by it's almost photographically realistic depiction of this most beloved of franchises or did we find it merely a lick of paint on a well worn genre? You'll just have to listen to this week's #NOTplaying Podcast to find out!
