GNR 59 – The Slugs are Coming!

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.

Err... What?

Mike, Dave and Fab discuss the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the Uber self-driving car accident. And of course, there’s Warhammer 40K talk.

Fab discovers that in Denmark, they also watch Dinner for One religiously on New Years. Mike and Fab then have to explain this concept to the Brit in the room.

Dave’s despairing over his Pixel C at last. Fab recommends he buy a real man’s laptop.


In this episode we, uncharacteristically, talk about the news.

The AI cars have started killing people.

And then there’s this business with Cambridge Analytica.


We give an update on our #4Feldherren plans and end the show by addressing your feedback. A discussion between Halefa and Jonathan M. H. was particularly funny. We also found some video games that have worse names than Divinity: Original Sin II. Some examples:

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

The winged hussars have arrived. On this GNR: Dave hates No Man’s Sky and Suicide Squad. And we discuss what makes a game.

Winged Hussars

We are back. And we explain why we didn’t podcast for a while. Well, Dave did. But it was on another show. We also hype on about Sabaton endlessly.

Fab’s taking part in the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride in Hamburg. Dave saw Suicide Squad and absolutely hated it. He did, however, love I Am Slaughter.

We then discuss No Man’s Sky. Which Dave absolutely didn’t like. Fab likes it a bit, but much prefers Elite. We also have a fight about if this is actually a game or not. We aren’t sure.

And as if all of that wasn’t enough bullshit, we also answer your questions.

Show Notes

Offshore Mike joins us for a nice long Black Library discussion, Dave reviews Huel, explains Bullet Journal and Fab rants about Star Trek Beyond.

First off: trouble is brewing at Cyanogen. In other sad news, The Expanse is not streaming on Amazon Prime in the UK. Of course not, because we can’t have nice things. To make things worse (or better, if you agree with Dave), Niantic has shut down third party Pokémon Go services. The bastards.

Dave remembers FOSS Talk Live and gives us a review of Huel. What a brave man. Apparently it tastes like cardboard with some extra grit mixed in for flavour.

Huel

We then discuss Bullet Journal, Passion Planner and wank on about notebooks from Leuchtturm 1917 and Analog.

Bullet Journal

Also: Operation Teapot. Wow.

Mike talks about the latest instalment in the Horus Heresy series, Angels of Caliban by Gav Thorpe and we philosophise if Luther is maybe not such a bad guy after all.

Luther

Mike finds out that he is not the greatest private detective in the world when he fails to guess Laurie Goulding’s email address to send questions about starship names to him. However, the questions have finally arrived with Laurie and we can hopefully present his answers in a future show.

We also discuss The Beast Arises.

To round out the show, Fab explains a lot of stuff that is wrong with Star Trek Beyond. For one thing, Idris Elba completely fizzles out under all that makeup. Well, at least we guess that’s Idris Elba…

Krall

We end the show with …you guessed it… feedback.
