Fab, Dave and Char talk Into the Breach, Into the Breach, more Into the Breach and great TV shows.
Our friend Char makes her triumphant return to the podcast and brings stories about how the Islamic State was defeated during the Big Crunch of 2017.
This episode was in storage for a while, in case it isn’t immediately obvious – mostly because Fab lost Episode 59. We can therefore now actually congratulate Char on winning a BAFTA here in the show notes, as we didn’t know if that was indeed going to happen when we recorded.
Before we disappear into the holidays, we deliver a massive episode with the best of what GNR has to offer: A hilarious Mozilla fuckup, a Star Citizen rant, a Star Wars review, our Games of the Year and some video game Warhammer.
As part of the site redesign, Fab has changed the Sixgun logo and GNR album art a bit. We hope you like the new look.
For the last time in 2017, we address your feedback. Including a weird discussion of playing card suits. We will be back in January of 2018. Until then, have a merry Christmas and a bloody good party to ring in the new year!
Fab and Dave talk about Mass Effect. A lot. Both Andromeda and the original trilogy.
By way of an introduction, we tell you about our booze habits. Nothing new there. Dave then explains why Battle Beast are awesome (he saw them live in concert the other night). Also: Who would’ve believed Games Workshop would sort out their merchandise game one of these days? Banging.
We then dive into the meat of the show, a massive conversation about Mass Effect: Andromeda and why it’s shit. And why Dave loves it nonetheless. We also discuss the original Mass Effect games. Fab’s been taking a page out of Dave’s book and has started, highly relevant chap that he is, to play through the first game.
Here are some impressions of Dave’s green-haired Ryder going about her business:
And this is what Fab’s Shepard looks like in the first Mass Effect. That’s ten-year-old tech.
The facial animations are better than the ones in the new game, believe it or not. Case in point:
We also mentioned some other images on the episode which Fab came across while we recorded:
Full house on Geek News Radio. We got Mike, we got Char and we got the bants. Lots of bants. And Korean skincare.
We’re starting off the show by talking about drinks and by catching up with what Char’s been up to – among other things the Screenshake festival. She also has a newsletter now. Out of respect for her, there won’t be any The Expanse talk this episode, because… spoilers. Check out these wisdoms from Avasarala in the meantime.
