    This week we’re joined by the smooth DJ tones of Alice O’Connor of Rock Paper Shotgun, who tells us about the shocking twist ending of Hypnospace Enforcer, and gives us her own peculiar take on the demo for Fifa 15. Meanwhile Pip has been betraying her native Dota 2 for the friendly embrace of League of Legends, causing Tom to show off how little he knows about lane pushing games. Finally Tom explains why everything he said about Invisible Inc last week is now complete bollocks. Early access! Don’t you just love it? The show notes, as ever, are inside....(Read more...)

    After last week’s disastrous lost podcast Pip, Tom and Jordan unite for episode 56, take two. The Sims 4 is out and we’re all either playing it, watching it or starring in it, so we have a big long chat where Jordan tells us exactly what has changed since last game. Meanwhile Pip has ghost running Dishonoured (by turning everyone into ghosts) and playing Dark Souls with a pair of Craigs whispering hints, lies and insults into her ear. Tom on the other hand, has been getting his arse thouroughly (and proceedurally) kicked by Invisible Inc. Show notes are inside....(Read more...)

This week she’s even brought Alan Williamson with her, who tells us how hard old Nintendo games are and plugs his charity booksale. Meanwhile Tom has been staring into the hexagon matrix of Hoplite, Pip has been disco dungeoneering in Crypt of the Necrodancer and Jordan has been getting so excited for The Sims 4 she even makes Pip take a Sims 4 personality test live on air.

    Not a Game podcast episode 54 – Gruff McManmeat

    18/08/2014

    This week perennial guest Laura Kate Dale returns to talk us through the highs, lows and generic mediums of the Gamescom press conferences. We liked Wild, Shadow Realms and Sony’s streaming plans, we did not enjoy the continued abuse of the word ‘exclusive’. After that Laura tells us about windmilling furiously in Mount Your Friends, while Tom tries to explain why curves are unpredictable in Towerfall (he failed geometry). Meanwhile Pip has been getting to grips with Dark Souls, raising the question, at what point does challenging minimalism just become bad game design? The Show notes, as ever are inside....(Read more...)

Louise has been talking about indie life and various indie co-operatives designed to stave off the terror and awkwardness of working from home. Meanwhile Tom has been thoroughly interrogated by The Game Police on what is and isn’t a isn’t a game (everything is). Show notes inside....(Read more...)

    This week Tom and Pip are joined by Richard Cobbett. Tom’s been playing LA Cops, which just released with a short but sweet early access build. This spurs us to talk about Sunless Sea and the two’s different approaches to story driven early access games. Pip has been having a survival horror week, building arm effigies in The Forest and getting non metaphorical cold feet in The Long Dark. Meanwhile Richard has been beating Phileas Fogg’s record in Around the World in 80 74 days. Also we can’t stop talking about Kim Kardashian and are not sorry. Show notes inside....(Read more...)

Lucy tells us about playing DayZ wiuth broken legs while Hannah tells us why Wolf Among Us is grittier than The Walking Dead. Laura has been exploring Itch.io and finding a bunch of strange, small indie games and Tom has been gaming like it’s 1999 with King of Dragon Pass. Also included: our favourite tutorials, rampant speculation about the new Bioware game and interactive fiction wordplay puzzler Counterfeit Monkey.

This week Craig brings us the topical observation that Final Fantasy VII is pretty good, Cara tells us the secrets of David Bowie’s groin and Pip and Cara embark on a marathon twenty minute discussion of the themes of Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.

    For episode 49 we’re joined by Kate Gray of Official Nintendo Magazine, who tells us all about just how sweary Towerfall makes her, leading Tom to bring up the splendidly named Timmy Bibble’s Friendship Club. Meanwhile Tom has also been playing first person open world botany ‘em up Miasmata and Pip has been doing science (of a sort) in Mousecraft and explains how puzzle games make her really competitive.
