Firewatch | #NOTplaying #118

by

If you've been listening to this show for any length of time you'll be aware that there are certain things we value in our videogames. Many of these elements are epitomised by Campo Santo's Firewatch, which places an emphasis on characterisation, storytelling and immersion. With a fantastic art-style and some world class voice-acting, this first person experience takes the blueprint established by Gone Home and runs with it. If Firewatch isn't in our GOTY discussion at the end of 2016, then it will have been a truly great year for gaming!

2016 Movie Preview inc. Batman V Superman, Star Wars, Star Trek, X-Men: Apocalypse & more! | #NOTwatching #89

by

OK. We're almost in March now. We Get it. We had to get all that 2015 business out of the way first though! And all those Oscar-bait movies out at the moment are arguably from last year anyway. There's Deadpool I guess - that's where we start pretty much, the first of many much anticipated superhero movies, albeit one that likely has more wit and charm in it's little finger than 2.5 po-faced hours of Batman Vs Superman. None of that matters anyway, because we have another Star Wars movie to look forward to again this Christmas. We aren't counting the days at all. Honest. All this & more on this extra-special 2016 #NOTwatching Preview Extravaganza!

Fallout 4, Titanfall, Godus & more! | #NOTplaying #117

by

It's been a fairly light few weeks as far as news goes (that we care about anyway), but we've nevertheless cherry picked a few morsels to go through this week, including Bethesda's plans for Fallout 4 DLC, EA's promise of new Mass Effect & Titanfall before the end of the financial year and the continuing nonsense of Peter Molyneux & 22 Cans' embarrassment of a kickstarter campaign, Godus. All this & more on a another news-packed #NOTplaying Podcast!



Fallout 4 DLC plans revealed!

Survival Mode coming to Vermintide end of February

Her Story 2 is happening

Star Citizen SP & MMO now available seperately...

Quantum Break coming to PC and Xbone Day 1 - System Requirements are kind of insane...

New Titanfall & Mass Effect in the next 14 months

Titanfall 2 will have a proper single player campaign

EA estimates reveal Xbox One install base

Officially no Assassin's Creed in 2016, but there will be a Watchdogs sequel before April 2017

Godus relaunches as Godus Wars - Internet goes mad at micro-transactions

TV Shows of 2015: Our Top 5s! inc. The Walking Dead, Daredevil, Jessica Jones & more! | #NOTwatching #88

by

And so, we finally make it to our final piece of 2015 coverage and the one that is probably most important to the soul of this show: Our favourite TV shows of the past 12 months. There's a fair amount of crossover in choices, despite Marcus filling Jon's shoes this time around, but there are also a few surprises too - and we hope we can help you navigate through the peaks and valleys of binge TV before the floodgates open this year. Oh, maybe I spoke too soon? We'll be back to normal programming very soon, but until then enjoy this final 2015-centric #NOTwatching Podcast!



In no particular order...

The Walking Dead

Wayward Pines

Jessica Jones

Castle

Banshee

Mr. Robot

Daredevil

The Leftovers

Game of Thrones

Humans

Darkest Dungeon, Pony Island & more! | #NOTplaying #116

by

2016 is off to a fine start with these two sublime independent releases. Darkest Dungeon has been available via Steam early access throughout 2015 and despite various uproars from it's community, the stress-filled rogue-like party-based RPG seems to have stuck the landing for it's final 'Version 1' release. Pony Island on the other hand, seems to have come from out of nowhere to drive people up the wall with it's insane genius(?). All this and just about everything else we've been playing so far this year on another game-packed #NOTplaying Podcast!

by

OK so we've been teasing this out for a few weeks now, but as we said last week - it's still awards season, so until the Oscars have happened we can go on about 2015 for as long as we like! This week we discuss our very favourite movies of last year and can you believe we actually agreed on our choices quite a lot - Why? Because our opinion is more or less fact. You're entitled to disagree no matter how wrong you are though... It's all about the very best of movies of 2015 on this week's #NOTwatching Podcast!



In no particular order...

Mad Max: Fury Road

The Martian

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

Inside Out

Ant-Man

Sicario

It Follows

Hitman, Psychonauts 2, Quantum Break & more! | #NOTplaying #115

by

We haven't done a straight news show for quite a few weeks now so you'll have to forgive us if some of this is a bit old. We couldn't let some of this pass us by without throwing our oars in though so prepare yourself for some commentary on some cherry-picked morsels of gaming culture from the past couple of months, including Square Enix's decision to make the next Hitman game properly episodic, EA bringing their 'Access' program to the PC via Origin, Double Fine's slightly controversial crowd-funding campaign for Psychonauts 2 and yet another Xbox so-called exclusive that may well be coming to PC eventually after all. It's all about the news on this week's #NOTplaying Podcast!


Hitman is now fully episodic

Origin Access is EA's new PC Subscription service

Psychonauts 2 makes it's funding goal with 5 days to go

Quantum Break rated for PC

Oculus Rift Launch Price, HTC Vive Pre-orders & how Playstation VR might win VR in 2016 | #NOTplaying #114

by

Last week we gave you our belated predictions on how much the consumer-ready Oculus Rift would cost at launch at and how much we would be willing to pay for it. We won't blow our trumpets too hard, but suffice it to say that pre-orders have been been made ;) Will we keep them though? HTC Vive pre-orders begin on Feb 29th, a good month before Oculus starts shipping, so it's seems perfectly possible to switch should Valve's hardware seem a more attractive proposition. Or we could just wait for Sony to do their thing, because from an install base/barrier to entry point of view, Playstation VR could easily clean up. All this and more on another VRtastic #NOTplaying Podcast!



Oculus Rift is £500, shipping internationally in March.

Oculus Launch (full) games

HTC Vive pre-ordering begins Feb 29th (still looks very much like a Dev Kit to me)

PSVR stands to be 3 x more popular than the rift

Razer Core adds modular desktop video performance for laptops
