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

On this instalment of GNR, Dave and Fab talk about Fallout 76 and discuss Magic: The Gathering for ages.

We are back from the brink with a fresh episode of Geek News Radio, massively long as always – mostly because we talk about Magic for over an hour.

Fab’s been annoying his neighbours with his boatswain’s call and Dave is back on Twitter. Fab’s also very excited about Springsteen on Broadway coming to Netflix.


Dave re-reviews Rise of Industry. It turns out he was wrong about it last time.


Fab reviews Fallout 76. Oh boy, it’s bad. You can also read his in-depth review on his blog: Parts IIIIII and IV.

Fab mentions Ivanpah Solar Power Facility.


We talk a lot about Magic: The Gathering which Fab recently got back into and also dragged Dave down with him. Mostly due to MTGA.

Cards mentioned:

We really like the Limited Resources podcast.


We end the show by talking about your feedback. People seemed to really like the return of Dan.

Show Notes

Offshore Mike is back for a show all about Heavy Metal: where it came from, how it developed and where it’s at now. As a bonus, Fab reviews The Curious Expedition.

We review Sabaton’s The Last Stand and debate over what the best song on the album is.

The Last Stand

Fab talks about seeing Sabaton live for the first time at Elb Riot and we discuss what Heavy Metal actually is. What does it all mean?

Fab at Elb Riot

Dave then gives a whistlestop tour of the history of Metal: Blues, Rock, The Who and some broken amps, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest, Punk Rock, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, Van Halen… Heavy Metal, Power Metal, Black Metal, Doom Metal, Thrash Metal, Nu Metal, Deathcore, Metalcore, Retro-Metal and finally Djent.

We look at the worst Metal band logos and Dave mentions an album that is all lore. Mike and Dave think Fab would enjoy Avantasia.

The Chart

Mike poses that Metal is all about going to gigs. And he says it’s not all about angry, white young men either. He then gives his Top 5 Albums That You Didn’t Know You Needed In Your Life:

  1. Heaven and Hell by Black Sabbath
  2. Painkiller by Judas Priest
  3. Somwhere in Time by Iron Maiden
  4. Epicus Doomicus Metallicus by Candlemass
  5. …For Victory by Bolt Thrower

We then do the Sabaton Quizz!

To have something else besides Metal on the show (heresy!), Fab reviews The Curious Expedition which is a great game from two dudes in Berlin. He absolutely loves it! If you are German, he also recommends you read Kapitän Schwandt’s biography Sturmwarnung.

The Curious Expedition

We end the show by reading out your feedback. Including some more details on the Amazon Dash Button.

Show NotES

This episode is packed to the rafters with electric cars, Gunpla, KanColle, Horus Heresy and even some Linux talk.

We are taking a break until mid-July, while both Fab and Dave are on holiday in Scotland.

There’s a free music DLC for Europa Universalis IV – get it while it’s hot. Speaking of music, Fab saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at the Olympiastadion in Berlin and his voice is still suffering.

We talk Brexit, the Euro and the new story mode in FIFA 17. Dave mentions the Kickstarter for a new album by Fighting Evil is Cool. Sony is settling with PS3 owners for removing Linux from the console in 2010.

Fab did some more voxel work.

Fab thinks electric cars are shit, Dave sees it more nuanced.

Dave’s been into Gunpla recently and tries to explain to Fab why it’s great. Fab, however, gets very distracted by his discovery of KanColle in the middle of all of this. Dave bought his Gundam kits at 1999.co.jp – which is where Fab also found the battleship girls.

I mean, what the fuck. Girls that are also battleships. Those Japanese are mad!

Dave’s been continuing his reading the Horus Heresy and he really liked The Silent War and Pharos. He also mentions an amazing spaceship generator written in Python.
