Show Notes

Fab and Dave fight the vagaries of global internet connections to bring you a chat about The Dark Tower, Spider-Man, Sabaton and the medium of games streaming.

Fab’s move to Hamburg is complete and he now has the old Linux Outlaws studio setup going again, which should improve our audio quality. Sadly, you won’t get a better show this time around, because our internet connection decided to dick us around instead. Well, next time, thanks to #fibre4dave, everything should be perfect however. Fingers crossed.

Before we get into the main topics, Dave recommends the Triforce podcast, which has apparently replaced the old Yogpod.

Sabaton has teamed up with Wargaming.net to produce a tank-filled video for their song Primo Victoria.

There’s now also a tank of the same name in the game. It comes with the Sabaton guys as crew!

Necromunda is back. Dave doesn’t understand. He though Shadow War: Armageddon was replacing it. Very confusing. Fab’s been watching The Dark Tower and reviews it. Spoilers, obviously. Fab thinks McConaughey as The Man in Black is the best thing since Tom Hardy in Taboo.

In the meantime, Dave’s seen Spider-Man: Homecoming and gives his review of that movie. Speaking of Tom Hardy, Fab can’t wait to see him as Venom.

We end the show with a chat about games streaming and how we think it’s going to change the future of entertainment. No feedback this time, as our connection has been rapidly deteriorating to shit all throughout the show. Check us out on YouTube!

Show Notes

It’s time for another Geek News Radio broadcast. On this show: Overwatch, Pokémon Go, Brexit and girls in tanks.

We start with the depressing topic of Brexit and come to the conclusion that everything is fucked now. At least our respective holidays in Scotland were fun. With the exception of Fab’s motorbike accident.

A pretty bad bug has been discovered in some UEFI implementations and Frankie Adams looks great as Bobbie Draper. Meanwhile Matthew McConaughey looks amazing as the Man in Black.

Fab has reversed his stance on Overwatch somewhat. Turns out it’s actually a very good game. Fab and Dave have been playing it together.

Winning Team

As requested by the listeners, Fab talks a bit about Snap, Flatpak and AppImage and what each of these do. He also tries to answer Dave’s question why we need this stuff at all. He then talks a bit about Panzermadels, which as a game concept is proper mad. This leads to Dave mentioning Girls und Panzer.

Girls und Panzer

After all of this, we also must address Pokémon Go, of course. It’s the biggest thing to happen in mobile gaming since ever, really.

Pokémon Go

We end the show, as always, with your feedback. This includes a message from Terile, who sends us a lot of statistics on how the world generates energy. If you want to play Overwatch with us, our Battle.net handles are davidmn#2892 and fabsh#2786.
