Black Sails, Vikings, House of Cards & more! | #NOTwatching #98

by

When it comes to period ultra-violence you need not look any further than Black Sails and/or Vikings, both of which are currently airing on Amazon Video. Both shows are now well into their 3rd and 4th seasons and are maturing quite nicely it must be said. While Black Sails flirts with history, it's really a mash-up of Robert Louis Stevenson lore. Vikings however is much more true to it's historic roots and seems to be broadening it's scope this year with a double length season which is taking in not just the plight of those scandalous Scandinavians, but the French & British too! We're getting medieval(?) on your ass in this week's #NOTwatching Podcast!

HTC Vive & Oculus Rift launch woes, Playstation VR & more! | #NOTplaying #126

by

At the time of writing Patrick has actually received his HTC Vive, but at the time of recording both headsets were suffering from problematic launches. The Oculus Rift isn't expected to arrive for most people until the end of May/early June, so this has given all of us plenty of time to reassess our decisions on which headset we want, or if we even want one at all. Perhaps it might even be worth sitting on the fence until Sony release their Playstation VR, cos if anyone knows how to launch a cutting edge technology product it's them right? It's an unusually negative VR rant on this week's #NOTplaying Podcast...

by

On this week's show Rob tells Patrick about all the things he missed at this year's EGX Rezzed event in London, including his hands on with both the HTC Vive and new Oculus Rift headset, a Developer talk with the makers of Firewatch and a whole bunch of indie games of varying quality that he managed to try out while he was waiting to play with Valve & Oculus' cutting edge tech. It's all about EGX on this week's #NOTplaying Podcast!

Indiana Jones V, Ready Player One & more! | #NOTwatching #96

by

On this week's #NOTwatching Podcast Rob & Marcus discuss the commitee-designed franchise farce that is Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. Marcus hadn't actually seen the movie at the time this was recorded so this is relatively spoiler free. Suffice it to say we had more pleasure in recording this than we did watching this absolute mess of a movie. If only Batfleck could have saved it, because he's far from the worst thing about it. It's all about the superhero genre finally jumping the shark on this week's #NOTwatching Podcast.
