Show Notes

We’re taking a month off but before we do, Fab and Dave bring you another episode packed with video games, Star Trek, Tomb Raider and mobile phone rants.

The number 47 is special.

Char’s game, Divinity: Original Sin 2, is out and has garnered some great reviews already. We take a first look.

“The game received universal acclaim, with many critics considering it to be one of the best role playing games of all time.”

Fab’s also been looking forward to Tom Francis’ new game Heat Signature.

We discuss Star Trek: Discovery. Will the first Star Trek series in over ten years live up to the hype? Fab wrote a preview for it for heise online. Fab’s also excited about the new Tomb Raider movie. She’s even got the DMM Rebel ice axe.

Phones are shit. Case in point: BlueBorne.

Dave’s been eyeing this Kickstarter for a fancy wet palette. And he tells us about Battlestar Galactica Deadlock.

We end the show with your feedback. You’ll have some time to submit some more of it, because we will be taking the month of October off. See you in November!

Show Notes

We enter a new year, but Geek News Radio stays the same as always. This episode, we bring you Elite news, predictions for the year and talk about The Expanse.

We start the show off with our usual overview of what we’ve been up to and explain why it took us so long to get back on the air. Good news: You can now listen to the show comfortably on your Sonos via TuneIn.

On Dave’s initiative, we give you some predictions for the current year:

There’s a Necromunda video game coming. In other news, Brian Krebs thinks he has figured out who authored the Mirai botnet.

We also review our Bullet Journal experience so far and Fab talks about the new Expanse book Babylon’s Ashes.

One topic keeps coming back to us through the whole episode: Just why is Enterprise such a good show? We attempt an answer.

We move on to Elite news: The Thargoids are coming and there’s a Kickstarter on for a pen and paper RPG set in the Elite universe. Meanwhile Fab’s joined the Hutton Orbital Truckers.

Fab also talks about his trip to Jaques Station in Colonia.

At the end of the show, we mention the GNRBBL and then wrap up with your feedback.
