Dave, Mike and Fab talk Warhammer 40K, Magic: The Gathering and also look at The Expanse Board Game.

Mike’s back on the show and he’s been doing Movember. Just look at that mustache!

Naturally, there’ll be a lot of Warhammer talk in this episode. But we start with Dave reviewing The Expanse Board Game.


After that Dave and Fab discuss Magic: The Gathering some more. Dave reviews Fab’s most recent draft deck and came up with an improved version. At some point the Black Lotus gets mentioned.


Mike then updates us on the latest developments in Warhammer 40K: VigilusDa OrksPrimaris Calgar and other bits and bobs. We talk about the new 40K podcast from Games Workshop.

It even has an RSS feed!

Mike also talks about two Black Library books he’s gotten into recently, namely The Lords Of Silence and Dark Imperium: Plague War. He also mentions Warhammer Horror and Track of Words.

Also check out Karl the Nurgling.

On this instalment of GNR, Dave and Fab talk about Fallout 76 and discuss Magic: The Gathering for ages.

We are back from the brink with a fresh episode of Geek News Radio, massively long as always – mostly because we talk about Magic for over an hour.

Fab’s been annoying his neighbours with his boatswain’s call and Dave is back on Twitter. Fab’s also very excited about Springsteen on Broadway coming to Netflix.


Dave re-reviews Rise of Industry. It turns out he was wrong about it last time.


Fab reviews Fallout 76. Oh boy, it’s bad. You can also read his in-depth review on his blog: Parts IIIIII and IV.

Fab mentions Ivanpah Solar Power Facility.


We talk a lot about Magic: The Gathering which Fab recently got back into and also dragged Dave down with him. Mostly due to MTGA.

Cards mentioned:

We really like the Limited Resources podcast.


We end the show by talking about your feedback. People seemed to really like the return of Dan.

Speaking of feedback, you can talk to us via Twitteron GitLab or by joining the Sixgun Discordand talking to us directly.

Show Notes

Fab and Dave discuss Gamescom, the classic games Schleichfahrt and AquaNox as well as hipster blog platforms and Season 2 of The Expanse.

Dave tells us about his holiday is Scotland and how he enabled Let’s Encrypt for his Ghost blog. Fab’s been trying to set up Hugo. Dave’s also compiled a new list of the podcasts he’s subscribed to. We also get into an Android/iPhone discussion for some reason.

Fab reports from Gamescom (even though that’s been over for weeks now), including how saw Sabaton and reported on Angela Merkel opening the trade show. After that week, Fab is really fed up with YouTube influencers now.

Speaking of games, Fab revisits his favourite game ever: Schleichfahrt. This game is known by the horrible game Archimedean Dynasty in the Englisch speaking market. It’s available on GOG.

There were two sequels: AquaNox and AquaNox 2: Revelation. THQ Nordic is now working on a reboot called AquaNox: Deep Decent.

The second season of The Expanse is now on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it already, you should do so immediately. We recap why we like it so much. It’s so much better than Game of Thrones.

Dave bought a Nintendo Switch with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. He’s been enjoying the console a lot.

At the end of the episode we address your feedback.

Show Notes

The first episode of Geek News Radio is finally here. Yes, we did it. We actually started the show and we answer the most important question of all: What the fuck? So. Here’s the show notes for numero uno:

The Welsh make whisky, because why not. Fab’s drinking Scotch, however. More specifically: 16 year old Jura. Dave’s drinking Johnnie Walker Black Label.

Autodesk makes many Android apps, apparently. Our first podcasts were The Bugle for Dave and PowerUser.TV for Fab.

Fab talks about a great Babylon 5 episode that delivers some very on-point media critique: The Illusion of Truth. The TV channel in B5 is called Interstellar Network News and they can’t acronym. Cynthia Torqueman is a great announcer name, though.

We hope you liked the first GNR broadcast. Please tell us what you think. An no, we do not have a Patreon. See you in two weeks!
