This time on GNR, we talk about the recent troubles in the Bitcoin community, Dave reviews Guitar Hero Live and Fab gives his impressions on Star Wars VII. There’s more than two hours of show here and, as usual, lots of other things get covered too.
We had a lovely time playing Rocket League and would like to repeat the experience with you, the listener! Please join our Discord server if you are interested. Speaking of video games, Dave reviews Guitar Hero Live for us and compares it to similar games. Oh yeah, there are Blu-Rays of The Expanse coming…
If you think we swear too much, meet the master:
Fab has controversial opinions on Star Wars VII. He thinks it’s too retro and the copying of Episodes IV – VI went way too far. Also, there are the usual J. J. Abrams problems with loose ends, things that make no sense and deus ex machina. Fab’s rather watching some more Columbo. Dave’s happy about Robot Wars coming back.
