We’re not dead and we have some (at this point pretty stale) E3 news. We also talk tech news stuff as well.

We recorded this episode during the week of E3. Due to a lot of shit going on in Fab’s life, it took us ages to release it. We are sorry for this. We hope you enjoy the episode nonetheless.

At the start of the episode, we recap some things that have happened since we recorded the last GNR. This includes The Expanse being saved, and FOSS Talk Live going well. An Fab’s a bit distracted because of this YouTube channel.

Last time Dave took a train in central Europe, it didn’t go so well.

Dave has been to the Rocket League World Championship and Fab talks about how his bike tour through the Alps went. Fab also saw Kiefer Sutherland play a concert in Hamburg an enjoyed it very much. Dave mentions The Happy Song.


We start off the show proper with some general news:

 Netrunner is dead

 Microsoft has bought GitHub

 Paradox has bought Harebrained Schemes


Next up is E3 news. We talk about Fallout 76, The Elder Scrolls VI, Cyberpunk 2077 and the new Bethesda franchise.

We also discuss the PUBG winter map, Jurassic World Evolution and The Division 2. In non-gaming news: Babylon 5 is apparently coming to Amazon Video.

We end the show, as always, with your feedback.

In a special one-off episode, Dave and Fab are talking about the death of PC operating systems. It’s coming. Or is it?

Since Fab has deleted our April Fools episode by accident, we bring you an alternative episode – Episode 59b if you will.

Our in-depth topic for this episode is the end of PC operating systems. Is the death of Windows at hand? Will Apple stop producing Macs? Dave just thinks people’s usage of computers has changed.

In a major shock, it also seems like Dave and Fab have completely swapped their opinions on what computers and operating systems they prefer.

We had already recorded Episode 60 at the time of recording this episode and that one will be out soon as well. Please excuse any damage done to the timeline in this episode.

Show Notes

This time around, Dave and Fab bring you a lot of hobby talk: Blood Bowl, Warhammer and White Dwarf. But they also talk tech news and spaceships.

Trump it is. We’re all screwed. The End Times indeed. In other bad news, the great Leonard Cohen has died.

That’s how the light gets in

But we also have some good news: Season 2 of The Expanse is coming to Syfy on 8 February.

If you want to know what the current date in 40K notation is, Fab’s got you covered. Also: EVE Online is now free! Wooohoo! Maybe Fab will finally stick with it now. Their berets leave much to be desired, though.

In other news, hell has frozen over! And a Hello Games designer who used to work for Molyneux is combo-chaining clusterfucks, he has gone to work at Star Citizen.

Next, it’s hobby talk. There’s a brand new Warhammer community site and Total Warhammer is coming to Linux. We talk Blood Bowl and Fab reviews the November issue of White Dwarf. Meanwhile, GNR collaborator Joe Ward has been featured on the GW site as part of #PaintingWarhammer.

Dave is now a fan of Microsoft’s tech support. He’s not a fan of upgrading his Ubuntu server, though. Also: Ghost in the Shell.

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.
