Avengers: Endgame - Spoiler Special | #NOTwatching #194

by

So the spoiler ban is officially lifted, the Spider-man: Far from Home trailer is safe to watch and judging by the humongous box office take everyone in the world who gives a crap has seen it already. You should be safe to listen to us process it then, because there's a lot to unpack here in what is surely the closest we will ever come to a finale in the MCU. It's all been leading to this, for over a decade now and over 20 films. It felt right to dedicate an entire episode to the epicness that is Avengers: Endgame. Enjoy!

Love, Death & Robots, The Umbrella Academy, True Detective & more! | #NOTwatching #193

by

Game of Thrones* might be dominating the small screen right now, but there's been a lot of other great shows this year. This week, we're kicking of with David Fincher and Tim Miller's animated anthology series, Love, Death & Robots. Also on Netflix is the adaptation of Gerard Way's Umbrella Academy and Ricky Gervais' After Life, while elsewhere we have Ben Stiller's surprisingly compentent prison break drama, Escape From Dannemora and the third season of True Detective. All this and more on another TV-focussed #NOTwatching Podcast!

*We're saving our final round of Game of Thrones released coverage for a detailed spoilery chat once the final season is done, so look out for that in a month or so's time...

EGX Rezzed, BAFTAS, Stadia, Vampire Bloodlines 2, Borderlands 3 & more! | #NOTplaying #191

by

After a few lacklustre episodes (we just hadn't had time to play much of anything new - sorry!) we're making it up to you this month with an absolutely packed show. First up we have to address some recent sequel announcements of the vampiric and borderlands variety, as well as the reveal of Google's new games streaming service, Stadia. Will's been on post apocalyptic shooter duty with Far Cry New Dawn and Metro Exodus, Rob's been getting a bit miffed by the new Hearthstone expansion and Marcus has been having a party with um.... Mario Party?

And then we're off on our annual pilgrimage to London's Tobacco Dock, for EGX Rezzed where we all got to play a bunch of different things: Ape Out, Divinity Fallen Heroes, Everspace, My Friend Pedro & much much more... And all that before hobnobbing with Videogame Royalty at the BAFTA Games Awards, the winners of which, we discuss in detail here...

Happy?

Captain Marvel, Alita: Battle Angel, Green Book & more! | #NOTwatching #192

by

Ever since Thanos clicked his fingers and Nick Fury dropped that pager shortly before turning to dust, we've been wondering what role Captain Marvel would play in and/or could do to save the MCU. And while the recent trailers confirmed she would indeed play a part in Avengers: Endgame, little was known of her origin. Until now. Captain Marvel is the first fully female fronted film in the MCU canon and after easily banking a billion dollars worldwide, you have to wonder why it took them so long. Listen on, dear listener, for our thoughts on Marvel's latest, Alita: Battle Angel, Netflix's The Dirt & Triple Frontier and a bunch of movies Rob binged on during his recent flights to the USA and back.

SXSW 2019 Special - inc. Good Omens, Us & more... | #NOTwatching #191

by

It's a bit of a special one this week, since we actually had boots on the ground at this year's SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas. Amazon had an enormous presence at the event with their adaptation of Neil Gaiman & the late great Terry Pratchett's Good Omens. We witnessed the world premiere of Chris Morris's The Day Shall Come and while we unfortunately missed Jordan Peele's Us when we were there due to an accomodation mishap, we made sure to catch it locally before we recorded this. Enjoy!

Star Wars Games - Past, Present, Future | #NOTplaying #190

by

There's been a fair amount of news and controversy surrounding the Star Wars franchise and it's current usage in videogames recently, not least of which is the apparent level of de-satisfaction being levelled at EA's channelling of it. There's even been rumblings of Disney's own 'Lucasarts' trademark being resurrected from the ashes (though this episode was recorded a while before that). So here's our musings on the situation, our history with the games and other assorted ramblings... Enjoy!

Russian Doll, The Punisher, Titans & more! | #NOTwatching #190

by

Sorry for the interruption in service, but some holidays had to be taken amidst the usual schedule, which you'll here more about in future episodes. So this one was recorded quite a few weeks ago now, but the show's we're talking about are no less relevant. Russian Doll opened Netflix's year big and while we know the Punisher is cancelled now, it's second and final season isn't one to miss!

More Assassin's Creed, More Spider-man, DLC for both & not much more. Sorry :/ | #NOTplaying #189

by

It's only February and already we have some games that might be in the conversation for Game of the Year 2019: Apex Legends, Metro: Exodus, Slay the Spire, Tetris 99, Resident Evil 2... We've also had Kingdom Hearts 3, Anthem, Far Cry: New Dawn & Crackdown 3. Good or bad, one thing you can be sure of is that at time of recording, we've #NOT played any of them. We might not be on the bleeding edge of gaming this month, but at least we're honest. So instead of any insightful conversation about any games to have come out so far this year, enjoy us droning on about some DLC for stuff we've already been banging on about for ages. Because #toomanygames #gamesaretoolong etc. Hopefully we'll have played something new before E3 rolls around...

The Favourite, Velvet Buzzsaw, Oscars 2019 & more! | #NOTwatching #189

by

Having spent the first month of 2019 previewing the hell out of it, this week's we're digging through some pretty significant news stories that have kicked off the year. More Ghostbusters! More Mission Impossibles! That's no small amount of awesome. We also run through this year's Oscar Nominations - especially the one's we've seen - before moving on to some more movies we have actually seen, including Dan Gilroy and Jake Gylenhaal's Nightcrawler follow-up, Velvet Buzzsaw, Timur Bekmambetov's first of many 'screenlife' projects, Searching & what we especially hope to be the middle part of Drew Goddard's genre deconstruction trilogy, Bad Times at the El Royale.

2019 Movie Preview inc. Captain Marvel, Avengers - Endgame, Spider-man - Far from Home and some films that aren't part of the MCU too! | #NOTwatching #187

by

On this week's show we're casting our eye over some movies we're excited about coming up in 2019. Some of them, believe it or not, have nothing to do with the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the final installment of a certain 'Skywalker Saga'. Suffice it to say, this could be a truly memorable year for the big screen :)
