Show Notes

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.

In the news:

Mozilla made a lot of people really angry with a Firefox / Mr. Robot publicity stunt.

Crytek is suing Star Citizen over the CryEngine.

Fab won the #4Feldherren Turtle Race. Joe still has a huge box of shame.

Fab got an iPhone 7 as a replacement for his dead Nexus 5X. Dave reviews Star Wars: The Last Jedi. He liked it, but you probably already guessed that. Fab still can’t be bothered.

We discuss our Game of the Year. Dave’s runner-ups are: 5. Deep Sea Adventure, 4. Divinity: Original Sin II, 3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and 2. XCOM 2: War of the Chosen. Fab’s runner-ups are: 5. Prey, 4. The Signal from Tölva, 3. Heat Signature and 2. Divinity: Original Sin II.

Dave’s winner is Warhammer 40.000 8th Edition.

Fab’s winner is Total War: Warhammer II.

Fab reviews his game of the year: Total War: Warhammer II. He really, really likes it.

We revisit our predictions for 2017 from the beginning of this year. We’ll give fresh predictions for 2018 in the first episode of the new year. This episode was long as it is at this point.

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!

Show Notes

In this episode, we catch up with the news in the geek world. That includes Amazon’s Dash Buttons, EVE Online going free-to-play, aliens and other space news.

We’ve been playing Elite Dangerous, which is clearly the best space game. Do you play? Why not join the Ghost Division? Oh well, if you’d rather wait for Star Citizen and Squadron 42… it has been delayed. Of course it has.

Amazon Dash Buttons. What the fuck.


We also discuss PlayStation Now streaming and the aliens that weren’t any. And Batman, Turkey.

Dave then explains EVE clone states. Basically, EVE’s gone free-to-play. Could be it’s to do with the subscribers going down. Probably is. In other news: Elon’s spacepenis exploded, Linux turned 25 (fuck me!) and OpenOffice is dying.

At this point in the show, listener Tim Fletcher injects some drama by asking our opinions on the University of Chicago letter and phil0co tells us about The Curious Expedition. Fab will review the game in the next episode.

Dave is going to Black Library Live 2016. Fab wishes he could go too. This sleep lab seems broken.

We cap the show with some feedback and say goodbye until next time when we will talk about Sabaton and other metallic things.

Show Notes

In the longest show to date Fab finally tackles Star Citizen and why it will fail, we discuss the Turkish coup, Pokémon, the Solus Project and Sabaton.

We start our current affairs segment with the bad news that Sabaton’s Thobbe Englund is quitting the band. Fab’s going to see one of his lasts shows at Elbriot. In other news, we still really like Pokémon Go, the Turkish coup was whatsapped and Dave discusses the DNC hack.

The Munich attacker apparently bought his Glock on the dark web, Tor says Appelbaum sexually harassed people and a vulnerability was discovered in LastPass.

In the main part of the show, Fab, as promised, finally tackles Star Citizen. Buckle up, it’s gonna get ugly, folks. After the barrage of mortars and guns has subsided and the panzer battalion has been through, nothing much is left standing. Even Derek Smart receives a few volleys in the fray.

When the dust has settled, Dave talks about the Solus Project which he heard about on Linux Luddites. Meanwhile, Fab discovers that he actually used to be a lot less mellow a few years ago, to the point that he even had a character assassination piece published on him. He’d forgotten all about that shit.

As is customary, we end the show with your feedback.
