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.

Show Notes

This time around, it’s all about professional wrestling and invading Poland in Hearts of Iron IV.

Sorry for missing a show. We promise we’ll make it up to you over the next few weeks before we take a short holiday time-out at the beginning of July.

Dave was on Two Star Podcast.

The Rock vs. Big Show

He’s also been watching a lot of professional wrestling and we chat about faces, heels and kayfabe. Dave really digs Sami Zayn, while Fab is still a massive fan of The Rock.

The Euro is coming up. We talk about our favourite teams. Fab is obsessed with the Germany kits. We also discuss horrible OEM updater code.

Fab mentions the recent raid on the Lovoo headquarters.

This was based on research by Fab’s colleagues at c’t. In other news, Jacob Appelbaum is in serious trouble.

Fab explains why Hearts of Iron IV is censored in Germany. We also tell the story of how he got around that. He gives a brief impression of what the game is like. It basically feels like you’re commanding a real army. With all the bureaucracy and shit.

As a side effect of playing the game, Fab now really likes Sabaton.

Hearts of Iron IV

We end the show with your feedback. While discussing this, Fab mentions his bike mechanic and we get recommended a podcast called Those Conspiracy Guys.

Show Notes

This episode has it all: EVE Online, Stellaris, Dawn of War, politics and even a review of the Captain America movie.

Obama is gone, Isernhagen has peace once again. Fab took this picture of Air Force One as it flew by his flat:

Breaking news: Apparently Trump can’t be stopped now. In more positive news, Dawn of War III has been announced and we are feeling the hype.

Dave regales us with his latest adventures in EVE Online. He’s been building a citadel and has bought a Caracal. We also talk about the Rokh and the Jackdaw. After all the EVE love, Dave gives his impressions on Captain America: Civil War, which he found to be rather meh.

EVE Citadel 1

EVE Citadel 2

EVE Citadel 3

FOSS Talk Live is sold out but we want you to come anyway.

Fab talks about the Panama Papers and the TTIP leak and what he thinks is wrong with all of it. We also debate the curious case of Craig Wright and why his claims of being Satoshi Nakamoto are probably bullshit. Fab then goes completely fanboy about Stellaris, which he only found out about recently. You should read their developer diaries.
