Show Notes

Fab and Dave discuss Gamescom, the classic games Schleichfahrt and AquaNox as well as hipster blog platforms and Season 2 of The Expanse.

Dave tells us about his holiday is Scotland and how he enabled Let’s Encrypt for his Ghost blog. Fab’s been trying to set up Hugo. Dave’s also compiled a new list of the podcasts he’s subscribed to. We also get into an Android/iPhone discussion for some reason.

Fab reports from Gamescom (even though that’s been over for weeks now), including how saw Sabaton and reported on Angela Merkel opening the trade show. After that week, Fab is really fed up with YouTube influencers now.

Speaking of games, Fab revisits his favourite game ever: Schleichfahrt. This game is known by the horrible game Archimedean Dynasty in the Englisch speaking market. It’s available on GOG.

There were two sequels: AquaNox and AquaNox 2: Revelation. THQ Nordic is now working on a reboot called AquaNox: Deep Decent.

The second season of The Expanse is now on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it already, you should do so immediately. We recap why we like it so much. It’s so much better than Game of Thrones.

Dave bought a Nintendo Switch with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. He’s been enjoying the console a lot.

At the end of the episode we address your feedback.

Show Notes

Join Dave, Mike, Joe and Fab on an episode full of Warhammer painting. Well, when we say painting, we mean we’re mostly talking about painting instead of actually doing it.

Fab, Dave, Mike and Joe come together to discuss their progress, or rather the lack of such, on their Warhammer 40K painting challenge #4Feldherren. While Dave’s actually been painting, he’s mostly added additional stuff to his commitment. Joe has been painting a lot, but none of it has been for the challenge. Fab and Mike have both progressed tiny amounts.

Fab:

The lads also discuss the return of Necromunda and the new Star Wars miniatures game from Fantasy Flight Games.

We also talk about Ring Raiders for some bizarre reason that really isn’t apparent afterwards. Looks like the Luftwaffe are also fans.

Did Fab mention that he met Sabaton? Oh yeah, and he also bought the tank.

We end the show with your feedback. We have some catching up to do, since we weren’t able to include a feedback section last time. We also did it in record time, because Joe had to go to bed.

Show Notes

Fab and Dave fight the vagaries of global internet connections to bring you a chat about The Dark Tower, Spider-Man, Sabaton and the medium of games streaming.

Fab’s move to Hamburg is complete and he now has the old Linux Outlaws studio setup going again, which should improve our audio quality. Sadly, you won’t get a better show this time around, because our internet connection decided to dick us around instead. Well, next time, thanks to #fibre4dave, everything should be perfect however. Fingers crossed.

Before we get into the main topics, Dave recommends the Triforce podcast, which has apparently replaced the old Yogpod.

Sabaton has teamed up with Wargaming.net to produce a tank-filled video for their song Primo Victoria.

There’s now also a tank of the same name in the game. It comes with the Sabaton guys as crew!

Necromunda is back. Dave doesn’t understand. He though Shadow War: Armageddon was replacing it. Very confusing. Fab’s been watching The Dark Tower and reviews it. Spoilers, obviously. Fab thinks McConaughey as The Man in Black is the best thing since Tom Hardy in Taboo.

In the meantime, Dave’s seen Spider-Man: Homecoming and gives his review of that movie. Speaking of Tom Hardy, Fab can’t wait to see him as Venom.

We end the show with a chat about games streaming and how we think it’s going to change the future of entertainment. No feedback this time, as our connection has been rapidly deteriorating to shit all throughout the show. Check us out on YouTube!

Show Notes

We discuss Star Trek: Discovery and talk about the hot new gaming sensation that is sweeping the land: Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds.

What the hell is going on with Star Trek: Discovery (STD)? It seems it is not looking good for the first Trek show in over ten years.

We get so frustrated by this shit show that we veer off into a discussion of the original series and DS 9.

Fab’s been playing and streaming a lot of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG). He’s finally roped Dave into playing a few matches.

We talk about the game at length. Watch the recording of us playing it on stream to get the full picture.

After this, Dave discusses the new Space Marine releases from Games Workshop and his new found love for dead animal brushes. Buy new brushes, everyone!

 

As is customary by now, we end the show with your feedback including a weird dream featuring  Fab.

Show Notes

Dave and Fab discuss the G20 summit in Hamburg, their trip to Dublin, the 8th Edition of Warhammer 40K and the recent outbreak of the Petya/NotPetya ransomware.

At the start of the show, we discuss the G20 bullshit that has been happing in Hamburg. Fab is very happy the idiots didn’t burn his new flat to the ground.

We recently celebrated ten years of Sixgun Productions at Char’s place in Dublin. We had a great time and played many board games. Mike also brought crazy Danish sweets and liqueur.

Over to Warhammer talk: Dave has been playing the 8th Edition of 40K. He tells us how that turned out. Dave and Fab then both give a quick #4Feldherren progress update. Fab’s been using Parafilm as part of his new wet palette.

Fab then explains the recent Petya/NotPetya outbreak. There’s quite a fascinating story there.

Joe Kucan is an amazing actor.

As usual, we finish the show by answering some of your feedback.
