Just when you thought you were save for a month, we hit you with another episode. This time, it’s all about Magic The Gathering, Warhammer and tanks.

Dave kicks off the show by talking about building a cube for Magic. With physical cards.

Fab had a very different experience with Anno 1800 than Dave did in our previous episode. He’s also been reading history papers on the Battle of Prokhorovka.

Dave’s been playing the Game of Thrones, sorry, Song of Ice & Fire miniatures game. He also discusses many Warhammer topics with Mike, including the new plastic Sisters of Battle.

We end the show, as is customary, with your feedback.

A content-packed episode of the show awaits you: Fab and Dave talk video games, entschleunigung and anime for more than two and a half hours.

Dave kicks things off with a report from FOSS Talk Live 2019. Fab couldn’t make it but says he’s planning to go to this year’s OggCamp. We than discuss the news that Larian is doing Baldur’s Gate III.

Naturally, we must also talk about Magic The Gathering, because it is the best game ever made. The new Core Set comes out this week!

Dave reviews a number of video games, namely Anno 1800, Islanders and Overcrowd: A Commute ‘Em Up.

In terms of entschleunigung, we discuss breadmaking and #vanlife holidays.

Dave also gushes about Neon Genesis Evangelion and we answer your feedback.

After several bouts of sickness and some scheduling issues, we’re finally back! Fab and Dave discuss Hearts of Iron IV: Man the Guns, War of the Spark and how Microsoft has finally made the Year of Linux on the Desktop come about.

We’re back and not going anywhere. Hopefully.

First order of business is Windows getting a proper Linux kernel in the Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 and also the amazing new terminal Microsoft just unveiled. Wat?

Fab talks bread-making. Proofing baskets, sour dough… we have it all!

Dave’s been playing The Hunter: Call of the Wild and Hearts of Iron IV: Man the Guns. He tells us about it. Also mentioned: The battleship Yamato.

We discuss War of the Spark, the latest – and greatest – Magic The Gathering expansion that’s out now. Fab’s been reading the accompanying book.

Fab’s also been spending his free time coding a Magic The Gathering card library app in Django. He’s named the app “Mage Tower”. It turned out to be more complicated than he first imagined.

We end the show with some feedback. If you want to tell us how you liked this episode, get in touch via Twitter, by joining the Sixgun Discord or by sending an email to feedback@sixgun.org. Thanks to Bytemark for graciously providing bandwith for this podcast.

Merry Christmas and a happy Brexit, everyone! We wrap up 2018 in style and look forward to 2019 with a massive two and a half hours long show.

After immediately slipping into a Magic discussion with Dave, Fab recommends Springsteen on Broadway on Netflix to everyone because it made him cry. There’s also a great interview with Bruce in Esquire magazine.


Fab gives a quick overview of playing the Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II beta. It looks quite promising.


Games Workshop has started a video series called Angels of Death. Of course it can’t possibly compare to the original.

They’ve also started a 40K podcast and hey, it’s an actual podcast! Like, with an RSS feed! Wonders never cease…


We wrap up 2018 with a look back at the year and our podcasting. We also make some wild predictions for 2019, because history tells us that this must be done.

Mike

  • Death Company Primaris Marines will enter the lore
  • Another Primarch will surface: Russ, The Lion, Fulgrim or Lorgar
  • Primaris Marines will enter the meta as cost reductions have started with Vigilus and Chapter Approved
  • Hollywood execs decide that it is time to reboot the Avengers and make a new Mario Brothers movie
  • There will be a niche market for pre-apocalypse party sets or survival gear in the UK
  • Trump will be impeached or resign

Dave

  • Microsoft won’t buy Canonical in 2019
  • No Deal Brexit is coming
  • Leman Russ will return to 40K

Fab

  • Microsoft will buy Canonical in 2019
  • The only people in the EU who will even notice Brexit are those ordering from Games Workshop or Amazon UK
  • Magic Esports will be very successful and paper Magic tournaments will profit from it
  • Star Citizen won’t come out in 2019


We have no feedback this time as, again, the previous episode wasn’t released when we recorded this one.

As part of our pre-Christmas recording marathon, another episode hits the airwaves. This time, Fab and Dave are talking Brexit, Magic: The Gathering, esports and Pokémon: Let’s Go.

We start the show with some inevitable Brexit discussion and wonder what would happen, if Andy Serkis replaced Theresa May.


Obsidian Entertainment has announced The Outer Worlds. And it looks like it could beat both Fallout and Mass Effect at their respective games…


We digest the latest news that Magic: The Gathering is going all in on esports. It then slowly sinks in that the Pro Tour is dead.

This turns into some general Magic chat, including our recent playing experiences on Arena. Here’s the Izzet Drakes deck Dave’s been playing.


To round out the show, Dave reviews Pokémon: Let’s Go and explains what the latest Pokémon hype is all about.


We have no feedback this time as the previous episode wasn’t released when we recorded this one. We’ve been on a mad podcast recording binge.
