Indiana Jones & the Fate of Stadia, Star Wars, Bond & more!

by

We ended up ranting so much on our last recording that we thought we might as well break this more news-orientated chat into it's own thing. Hardly surprising considering these very early game announcements all concern IP dating back to our childhoods: IO interactive making a Bond game? Machine games making a Indiana Jones game? And Ubisoft making an open-world single player Star Wars game? If they can manage to succeed where EA failed, then surely gamers around the world can cry out in joy. Could the circle finally be complete? Listen on to hear what we think...

And in case you were wondering... Yes. Despite the games not exactly coming thick and fast for the foreseeable, we still seem to have enough earfood for you to go fortnightly again... at least while present conditions continue and we don't have to waste time on trains when we can be playing and talking about games instead.

Back in a couple of weeks with our thoughts on The Medium, Immortals Fenyx Rising & more!

2021(?) Preview inc. Deathloop, Back 4 Blood, Far Cry 6 & more! | #NOTplaying

by

If this year goes to plan hopefully some of the games mentioned in this episode will come out before the end of it, as we once again cast our beady eyes over some of our most anticipated games to be released in the near future.

Obviously, with things being as they are, take all of this with an enormous dollop of salt. Some of our picks are fanciful to say the least. If Kratos swings his blades before we do this again then 2022 will have a lot to live up to...

Our favourite TV shows of 2020 inc. The Mandalorian, Gangs of London & more! | #NOTwatching

by

Once again, we're well into another year, but there's still time to go through our picks of the best TV from last year, especially in a year that was so hugely reliant on the small screen, with more streaming services than there are days in the week now - it was a small mercy in a year where entertainment options were at a premium.

Disney+ made a belated but hugely significant impact, with not one, but two seasons of the first live action TV show set in the Star Wars Universe, Gareth Evans brought his cinematic chops to bear on Sky's Gangs of London & even Apple had something to say with their impressive slate of comedy and drama.

It's quite telling that Netflix shows feature far less heavily than in recent years. So here it is, our top TV of the shambles that was 2020.

Our Favourite Games of 2020 inc. Ghost of Tsushima, The Last of Us Part II, Final Fantasy VII remake & more! | #NOTplaying

by

It's been a rough year for most forms of media, but despite a few high profile delays and famously botched launches, for the most part videogames have thrived, with lockdown restrictions and increased free time due to homeworking, we've more time than ever before to escape into digital worlds while the real one burns around us.

So it's that time of year once more where we count through our favourite games of the year, the ones we've managed to play anyway. We also nominate a few honourable mentions that didn't quite make the cut...

Tune in next week for our most anticipated games of 2021!

Our Movies of 2020 inc. Tenet, Host, The Invisible Man & more! | #NOTwatching

by

If there's one silver lining to be had from 2020 it would be that putting together our list of favourite movies wasn't really much of a challenge this year. Whether that was due to a complete lack of films being released or the sheer quality of output from the various streaming services is arguable. Or simply the fact that certain films managed to capture the sheer despair of this horrific year so well. In any case, here are our rather quite diverse picks of 2020.
