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

Fab and Dave talk about Mass Effect. A lot. Both Andromeda and the original trilogy.

By way of an introduction, we tell you about our booze habits. Nothing new there. Dave then explains why Battle Beast are awesome (he saw them live in concert the other night). Also: Who would’ve believed Games Workshop would sort out their merchandise game one of these days? Banging.

In space news, you can now visit the Trappist-1 system in Elite. Space nerd boner guaranteed!

We then dive into the meat of the show, a massive conversation about Mass Effect: Andromeda and why it’s shit. And why Dave loves it nonetheless. We also discuss the original Mass Effect games. Fab’s been taking a page out of Dave’s book and has started, highly relevant chap that he is, to play through the first game.

Here are some impressions of Dave’s green-haired Ryder going about her business:

And this is what Fab’s Shepard looks like in the first Mass Effect. That’s ten-year-old tech.

The facial animations are better than the ones in the new game, believe it or not. Case in point:

We also mentioned some other images on the episode which Fab came across while we recorded:

After all of that, Dave mentions the Kickstarter for Rampunctious and Fab reports that he backed Bellingcat. We also stole the idea of a Book of Grudges from The Crate & Crowbar.

We end the show with your feedback. You can get in contact with us in a variety of ways. Until next time, suckers!
