Dave and Fab discuss software development crunch, freelance journalism, music and the game Objects in Space. There’s also some geek news to wade through, of course.

Fab was a guest on FLOSS Weekly 492 together with Dan (you know, that guy from Linux Outlaws). Also, he’s going freelance with his day job by the end of the year. He’s also started a new Twitch channel. Dave’s been hit by crunch, and he says it’s as horrible as people say it is. He’s managed to work on his Kill Team stuff, though.

Fab’s been really enjoying Hulkoff. He’s also bought a ticket for Wacken 2019 as Sabaton is headlining.


Fab’s been playing Objects in Space and reviews the game.


Alex Jones is being shut down everywhere, Fab things this isn’t a good thing. Unsurprisingly, Dave disagrees. In other news, there’s now a campaign to fix PUBG. The first thing they should fix is the cheater problem.

Fallout 76 is not coming to Steam. Idiots.

We end the show with your feedback and the bombshell news that Dave has deleted his Twitter account. 😳

Babylon 5 is not coming to Europe, Kill Team doesn’t have many real kill teams in it, Simon Stålenhag is great and Fab reviews Surviving Mars.

Fab’s work life has been hell recently and Dave is stuck in startup crunch mode. But we nonetheless vow to get back to recording more regularly.

Babylon 5 may be coming to Amazon Video… not in Europe, though. Of course, it isn’t. Fuckers! We still want to do Babylon 5 Babble-On, though.


Fab has become a huge fan of Simon Stålenhag’s work. No wonder, the guy paints amazing scenes. Fab even wants to get a print to hang in his office. Meanwhile, Dave tries to make the French Tuck happening. He also loves this bike.

Like this tweet!


Dave discusses 40K things: The new Kill Team game, his Everlasting Wet Palette and the minis he bought from Anvil Industry and what he’s gonna do with them for Kill Team.


We then discuss some news. This includes the EU fining Google because of Android and Google’s cloud data transfer project. We also mention the World Cup in passing. Dave also wants to talk about the Tour de France for some reason.


To round out the show, Fab reviews Surviving Mars and we talk about your feedback. If you’d like to play Fortnite 🤮, tweet Dave.

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.

Shorts and Comic Books

Dave and Fab discuss Amazon’s Bosch, Netflix’ Lost in Space and Marvel’s Infinity War.

First off, some news: Pillars of Eternity II is out and looks like it’s shaping up to be as great as its predecessor. Fab is looking forward to playing it a lot, but has no clue when he can find the time because he’s still playing Battletech a lot.

In other news, Elite Dangerous for the Mac is dead for technical reasons.

Fab has been watching Bosch, a cop show on Amazon starring Titus Welliver. He also reviews Lost in Space on Netflix. Dave really likes Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Dave’s been to the cinema and has watched Avengers: Infinity War. You will be shocked to discover that he enjoyed it very much.

We wrap up the episode with some feedback from our awesome Discord server.

Old Man Dave talks about Ubuntu 18.04 on the Dell XPS 13 and Lara Croft fanboy Fab talks about his experience at the premiere event for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. He also reviews BattleTech.

Fab has finally figured out why Dave’s audio was suboptimal for ages and it isn’t pretty – it turns out Fab’s an idiot. Speaking of annoying things: Dave gives an update on House Ownership 101.

Dave has bought a Dell XPS 13 and slapped Ubuntu 18.04 on it – by all accounts it’s going quite well. He’s also started using Atom to see if Fab’s completely mad for using it instead of Sublime Text.

Meanwhile, Fab was in London at the exclusive Shadow of the Tomb Raider premiere event. The game looks great, Fab’s very much looking forward to its release in September.

Until Shadow of the Tomb Raider arrives, though, Fab’s currently favourite game in the world is Battletech. It’s so fucking good!

We wrap up the show by answering your feedback. Including a scathing email from Listener No. 1 Niklas. It also seems Mike’s been busy stealing Bitcoins…
