Next-gen VR on PS5, Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2, Guilty Gear Strive & more! | #NOTplaying

by

Will might be in the midst of a between game slump, but his ears certainly pricked up upon news of Sony's next wave of VR tech, which we begrudgingly have to concede has been his call for the last 2 years or so of predictions we've run on this show.

Meanwhile Rob is utterly dismayed by the firing of Bloodlines 2 developer, Hardsuit Labs, spelling almost certain doom for the project in question, but was somewhat bouyed by the strategic depth of Gears Tactics and the sheer badassery of being Batman in Arkham VR, which he'd been putting off playing until he had enough space to swing a batarang around in.

And finally Marcus is the one landing on the cutting edge of gaming once again, with a return to his Capcom franchise of choice, for of course the Monster Hunter Rise demo landed recently. Since recording both(!) his copies of the full game have arrived, so you can be sure we'll be diving into that in more detail next time...

Until then, a quick apology for the quality of Rob's track this week. He hadn't quite gotten all the goblins out of his new headset at the time of recording and believe us when we say we paid for it when it came to editing his horribly distorted and squished contribution!

Wandavision & the future of Disney+ | #NOTwatching

by

We know it's taken a while to get an episode out this year, but we wanted to make sure we had something significant to discuss before we did. And it doesn't get much more significant than the first official MCU show on Disney+

Wandavision arrived in all it's retro-glory back in January and now the final episode has aired we can get into it spoilers an' all. There's also some chat about all the other Disney+ shows that got announced as part of THAT investor call just before Christmas.

So consider this your final warning. Fast forward to 25:00 if you want to skip the Wandavision Spoilers.

We'll be back soon with the best of the rest so far in 2021!

Immortals Fenyx Rising, The Medium, FFVII and more! | #NOTplaying

by

On this week's show we're talking about Ubisoft's OTHER open world game loosely based around Greek Mythology, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Bloober Team's impressively creepy looking The Medium and Marcus is now comfortably back in the arms of Final Fantasy VII after realising that he could have spent 2020 playing that instead of stressing about what a shit year it was, proving that videogames really are the best kind of distraction during any kind of apocalypse. Hoorah!
