Passionate about Primarchs

We’re freezing in Hamburg, Birmingham and Dublin under the sway of The Beast from the East. To keep ourselves warm, we fight about women Space Marines and Divinity: Original Sin II.

It’s very cold, so we discuss our various cultural means of dealing with THE BEAST FROM THE EAST.

Fab’s been creating beautiful wallpapers from maps and fighting Pro 7, no sorry PRO SIEBEN, on Twitter. Meanwhile, Mike and Dave are discussing feminist Space Marines.

We also discuss the “Legion of Dave” by Leakycheese. Also: Sisters of Battle represent!

We’ve been putting it off for way too long, so now we finally talk about our opinions on, by many accounts the best game of 2017, Divinity: Original Sin II.

Fab mentions The Crate & Crowbar‘s D&D session. Oh yeah, and #4feldherren is back!

Elite Dangerous: Beyond is out and brings some new content. Part of that is better missions and a very, very sexy ship. Contrary to what Fab said on the show, you don’t need an Alliance naval rank to buy it. Still, it’s confusingly named the Alliance Chieftain.

Just look at that ass!

We revisit the Passion Planner. Apparently it is the best selling personal organiser on US Amazon now.

As is traditional, we end the show by talking about your feedback. And remember: Read The Shadow over Innsmouth, kids!

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

Dave’s friend Yue joins us on the show to geek out about EVE Online. We also talk Dark Tower and a bit of Warhammer 40,000 of course.

At the start of the show, Fab gushes over the new Dark Tower movie which is coming soon.

Elba and McConaughey are already having fun on Twitter with it. Fab’s re-reading the books in preparation.

Apparently, BioWare is scaling down the studio responsible for Mass Effect: Andromeda. We kind of predicted this. In Warhammer news, Fab’s finished reading Fall of Cadia and Dave has bought Shadow War: Armageddon. And GW is now actually funny.

These days, Dave is explaining EVE Online to GQ.

And because he’s so knowledgeable on this, Yue and him are putting on an EVE event in Manchester later in the year. And you’re all invited!

We chat about this and also about EVE Fanfest, which both Yue and Dave visited. And there’s plenty of other EVE Online talk, of course. Join Omi Galactic. Or even better: Play Elite. (Yeah, Fab’s writing the show notes. Harr harr!)

We end the episode by addressing your feedback.

Show Notes

Mike, Fab and Dave discuss the changes coming to Warhammer 40K with 8th Edition, review Dawn of War III and talk current events in the Elite Dangerous galaxy.

First of all, Fab and Dave discuss the new Ghost in the Shell movie – it’s been so long, Dave has already forgotten he’s seen it.

We then discuss with Mike the changes coming to Warhammer 40,000 with the Gathering Storm and 8th Edition. Will 40K get similar books to the battletomes in Age of Sigmar? What are they doing to the galaxy?

Fab reviews Dawn of War III, which he’s played for a bit.

In the second big part of the show, Mike and Fab discuss their love for Elite Dangerous and try to convert Dave away from EVE. Fab explains what the recent Salomé event was all about.

Who is Harry Potter and why is he such a dick? Mike explains how he was killed by him… twice. And also tells us other interesting tales from wilderness space.

Mike then drinks Tyrkisk Peber and reads funny Danish sentences to scare Dave off the show.

  • Rødgrød med fløde.
  • At plukke frugt med en brugt frugtplukker.
  • Fem flade flødeboller på et fladt flødebollefad.
  • Vestens vilde ville vide, hvad vestens hvide ville vide.

We end the show, as always, by answering your feedback.
