Show Notes

Before we disappear into the holidays, we deliver a massive episode with the best of what GNR has to offer: A hilarious Mozilla fuckup, a Star Citizen rant, a Star Wars review, our Games of the Year and some video game Warhammer.


As part of the site redesign, Fab has changed the Sixgun logo and GNR album art a bit. We hope you like the new look.

In the news:

Mozilla made a lot of people really angry with a Firefox / Mr. Robot publicity stunt.

Crytek is suing Star Citizen over the CryEngine.


Fab won the #4Feldherren Turtle Race. Joe still has a huge box of shame.

Fab got an iPhone 7 as a replacement for his dead Nexus 5X. Dave reviews Star Wars: The Last Jedi. He liked it, but you probably already guessed that. Fab still can’t be bothered.


We discuss our Game of the Year. Dave’s runner-ups are: 5. Deep Sea Adventure, 4. Divinity: Original Sin II, 3. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and 2. XCOM 2: War of the Chosen. Fab’s runner-ups are: 5. Prey, 4. The Signal from Tölva, 3. Heat Signature and 2. Divinity: Original Sin II.

Dave’s winner is Warhammer 40.000 8th Edition.

Fab’s winner is Total War: Warhammer II.


Fab reviews his game of the year: Total War: Warhammer II. He really, really likes it.


We revisit our predictions for 2017 from the beginning of this year. We’ll give fresh predictions for 2018 in the first episode of the new year. This episode was long as it is at this point.

For the last time in 2017, we address your feedback. Including a weird discussion of playing card suits. We will be back in January of 2018. Until then, have a merry Christmas and a bloody good party to ring in the new year!

Show Notes

Three quarters of the Vier Feldherren unite once again to bring you Warhammer news and some 40K painting progress. And lack thereof, of course. We also talk about an Apple fail and live music.


Fab’s been working on a new look for the Sixgun site and hopes you don’t find it completely despicable. Dave’s also redesigned his site. The SSL errors haven’t changed, though.

We talk about our plans for Sabaton Open Air, also known as “Operation SOAP”.

Fab went to see Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul in Hamburg.


We laugh heartily at macOS being shit and talk about the news in Warhammer Land:

Dave, Mike and Fab review their #4Feldherren progress. It looks like Dave is the clear winner here. Fab and Mike are locked in the turtle race for second place. Shout-out to listener Niklas for showing us how it’s done.

Dave also beat Icarus at 40K – actually playing this game, what is this madness??? 


We end the show with listener feedback and a question from Fab: What gaming monitor should he buy? This is perfect but too expensive…

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

Join Dave, Mike, Joe and Fab on an episode full of Warhammer painting. Well, when we say painting, we mean we’re mostly talking about painting instead of actually doing it.

Fab, Dave, Mike and Joe come together to discuss their progress, or rather the lack of such, on their Warhammer 40K painting challenge #4Feldherren. While Dave’s actually been painting, he’s mostly added additional stuff to his commitment. Joe has been painting a lot, but none of it has been for the challenge. Fab and Mike have both progressed tiny amounts.

Joe:

Mike:

Dave:

Fab:

The lads also discuss the return of Necromunda and the new Star Wars miniatures game from Fantasy Flight Games.

We also talk about Ring Raiders for some bizarre reason that really isn’t apparent afterwards. Looks like the Luftwaffe are also fans.

Did Fab mention that he met Sabaton? Oh yeah, and he also bought the tank.

We end the show with your feedback. We have some catching up to do, since we weren’t able to include a feedback section last time. We also did it in record time, because Joe had to go to bed.

Show Notes

We discuss Star Trek: Discovery and talk about the hot new gaming sensation that is sweeping the land: Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds.

What the hell is going on with Star Trek: Discovery (STD)? It seems it is not looking good for the first Trek show in over ten years.

We get so frustrated by this shit show that we veer off into a discussion of the original series and DS 9.

Fab’s been playing and streaming a lot of Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG). He’s finally roped Dave into playing a few matches.

We talk about the game at length. Watch the recording of us playing it on stream to get the full picture.

After this, Dave discusses the new Space Marine releases from Games Workshop and his new found love for dead animal brushes. Buy new brushes, everyone!

 

As is customary by now, we end the show with your feedback including a weird dream featuring  Fab.
