Show Notes

Fab and Dave celebrate GNR’s second birthday, bring you the relevant geek news and talk Warhammer 40K and Elite Dangerous.


We start the show with some geek news:

  EA’s stock price is fucked because of loot boxes.

  Top NSA hackers are as stupid as the next person some times.

  Hutton Orbital claims another victim.

  Linux Journal closes its doors.

  Django 2.0 is out!


Geek News Radio is now two years old! Fab’s been reflecting on it in a post on the new Sixgun blog.

Dave has has invented Warhammermas and went on a trip to Warhammer World. He tells us how much fun that was. The bastard.

In the meantime, Fab’s been laughing at this hilarious Rainbox Six thread on Reddit.


Fab had a week off and started a deep space exploration mission in Elite Dangerous.

In other news, Joakim wants to go cuddle with the polar bears. Help him out!

Dave’s been emo about Netrunner and Star Citizen is now selling virtual land that doesn’t exist.


We end the show by talking about your feedback. Thank you for the nice words in response to Fab’s blog post.

Show Notes

We are joined by our friend Joseph Ward to talk about Warhammer, Total War and Age of Sigmar.

Joe explains how he came to be on the show. We then start the episode with sportsball: The Pittsburgh Penguins have won the Stanley Cup and Germany and Wales are doing quite well in the Euro. We also discuss some E3 news and Dave rants about Apple’s WWDC event. Dave did like the Warcraft movie though, while Fab remains sceptical.

Total Warhammer

The Old World

Onwards to the main topic: Warhammer. Fab discusses the recently released Total War: Warhammer (“Total Warhammer”) and Joe explains how he came to play Warhammer Fantasy Battle – Fab and Dave were partly to blame thanks to Angels of Death. He now plays Age of Sigmar, however, and likes it very much. He even plays in tournaments from time to time and explains how the organisers modify the rules to make games more balanced.

After Joe runs away like a coward to attend to his fatherly duties, we end the show by addressing your feedback.

Show Notes

This time, we are entering The Dark Zone. We talk The Division, Master of Orion and the latest Microsoft and Apple news.

You need to update your Kindle (if it’s old). In other news: Why is Microsoft so shit? What the hell is the Universal Windows Platform and why did they close Lionhead?

Apparently there was an Apple thing. And a security problem with an Apple thing.

Dave really likes Tom Clancy’s The Division. Fab tries to find out why. Fab then talks about Master of Orion and Stardew Valley.

Dave will be at FOSS Talk Live in London on 6 August. He also says you should check out Icarus’ board game blog, where Icarus blogs about board games.

Fab reminisces about Lexx: The Dark Zone. As usual, we end the show with your feedback where we learn about Wileyfox.
