State of the Podcasts September 2017

x1101 sent a question to the podcast a few weeks back about what we're listening to these days. At this moment I've got 29 feeds in my podcatcher (I still use Pocket Casts, recently it got SONOS support). I wont bore you with the full list but I'll go through…

#4Feldherren

On the last episode of Geek News Radio we (Joe, Mike, Fab and I) decided to embark on #4Feldherren. This is basically A Tale of Four Warlords but with a German hashtag. The idea is that we commit to painting some miniatures by a date, report progress and hopefully get…

Incan Gold is no Deep Sea Adventure

I was given Ican Gold for my birthday back in February. Last weekend we finally took it for a spin. Incan Gold puts you and your pals in a Indiana Jones style situation where you're venturing into some ruined temple and completely unethically stealing all their stuff while trying not…

Star Wars Destiny

It's another card game from Fantasy Flight! It's got the Star Wars licence! It's not an LCG? WHAT? I saw Star Wars Destiny then forgot about. I thought it was impossible for FFG to put out two Star Wars card games at the same time. That'd be madness surely? WELL,…

NaGatL Episode 4

We're back for episode 4! We chat about Ben crashing his car, going to Black Library Live, Blood Bowl, Netrunner, and field some questions from our most excellent listeners. Ben's post is here with the feed available here.…

Pixel C Ten Months On

It's been almost ten months since I got the Pixel C so I think it's about time I got around to writing more about it. I think I promised I would "finalise" my thoughts on it on an episode of GNR. If you're looking for a mid review…

NaGatL - Episode 3

Fab used the remote kill switch he installed in my PC to prevent me recording episode 3 of Not as Grumpy they Look a few weeks back. We managed to sneak a recording in without Fab noticing and here it is! We chat a lot about LCGs and party games.…

Not as Grumpy as they Look

My good friend Icarus has started a podcast! A spin-off if you will, from his blog Not as Grumpy as He Looks. More importantly, I'm on the first episode! We talk about board games, randomised combat mechanics, I attempt to talk about EVE after a couple of glasses of wine…

Not Your Dad's Sky

I played No Man's Sky for the first time today. It's alright. I can hear the internet scream "BUT DAVE! WHERE'S THE HOT TAKE? WHAT ABOUT THE BRAND?" Deal with it. I came into NMS knowing pretty much nothing about how it all works or really what it…
