The Man in the High Castle | #NOTwatching #81

by

If there was ever a time to get your teeth into a new streaming TV(?) series then it would have to be this festive period and while the lions share of media interest was on Marvel & Netflix's Jessica Jones back in November, Amazon chose the same day to put out their own eagerly awaited genre-buster. Based on Philip K. Dick's novel, The Man in the High Castle is set in an alternative history where the AXIS forces won the war. It's a setup that's possibly more intriguing than it's execution, but definitely worthy of discussion on this week's #NOTwatching Podcast!

Life is Strange & ARK: Survival Evolved | #NOTplaying #109

by

Some more pre-GOTY discussion chat from just before Christmas, this time about two arguable 'Game of the Year' contenders. Rob just about kept up with Life is Strange as it was released throughout 2015, but Iain has only just caught up with it, so we thought it worth revisiting. And since Matt was on the show, it seemed like a good time for him to explain why he's spent - quite literally - hundreds of hours punching trees and riding dinosaurs in ARK: Survival Evolved. Enjoy this post-festive #NOTplaying Podcast!

Fallout 4 - Part 2 | #NOTplaying #108

by

We've already talked about Fallout 4 on this show at some length, but that time was it was just Rob trying to convince Iain & Adam of it's virtues. This show was recorded a few weeks later, this time with Matt & Patrick, who have also played the game. There's still no convincing Iain though, despite our best efforts. Anyway, this episode should offer a more rounded conversation of the pros and cons of Bethesda's latest magnum opus... Enjoy!

Jessica Jones | #NOTwatching #79

by

It's difficult to think, let alone read, speak or listen to/about anything that isn't set a long time ago in a galaxy far far away this week, but we'll have our thoughts on that next week when more people have had a chance to see it. In the meantime, listen on to this week's #NOTwatching Podcast for our thoughts on Marvel & Netflix's 2nd bite of the Big Apple, Jessica Jones. Spoiler: we liked it a lot.

Just Cause 3 | #NOTplaying #107

by

2015 will no doubt go down in history as the year of the Open World Videogame. It's fitting then, that Avalanche would squeeze a second sandbox adventure out right at the end of an already jam-packed holiday line-up. The Just Cause series certainly has it's audience though, as our Iain would attest, having already been quite enamoured not just with the previous game in the series, but also Avalanche's take on Mad Max earlier in the year. You might say he's quite a fan of studio, but can he convince the rest of us? Listen on to find out in this week's #NOTplaying Podcast!

Steam Machines, SteamOS & the Steam Controller | #NOTplaying #106

by

If you were thinking of treating yourself to one of those mysterious Steam Boxes for Christmas, then chances are you've already bitten the Black Friday/Cyber Monday bullet, so sorry we couldn't get this episode up any sooner. Now might be a good time to look at the current state of Valve's hardware eco-system though - Patrick's been using the Steam Controller for a few week's now so we thought it might be useful to see how he's getting on with it. There have also been some reports that Valve's Steam OS might not be running games as well as the competition. All this and more on another hardware-focused #NOTplaying Podcast!

Captain America: Civil War - First Trailer, Doctor Strange, Alien: Covenant & more! | #NOTwatching #77

by

The world might be on the brink of a new Star Wars movie, but let's not forget Disney's other trump card and the first Marvel blockbuster for 2016, Captain America: Civil War, based on the infamous comic-book arc and featuring a cast of characters that gives the last Avengers movie a run for it's money. Downey Jr & Evans went on Kimmel to drop the first trailer last week so here's what we thought about that! And in other Marvel news we have the official cast details for Doctor Strange (also coming in 2016), the latest in the Prometheus/Alien: Something saga & a whole mess of movie properties that might be coming to TV! All this & more on another news-punching #NOTwatching Podcast!
