#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 some games in. Fab is going to try to finish his Word Bearers, Mike is doing a custom Space Marine [Read More]

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 to be killed by rock slides, fire, spiders, et al. Everyone takes their turn at the same time. This is [Read More]

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, NO. Rob got two starter sets and we played a it today! It's a symmetric a primarily 1v1 game where [Read More]

Game of the Year 2016

It's not EVE. It's not Netrunner. "You're not on brand" I hear you scream. The canonical best game of 2016 is Stardew Valley. [Read More]

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. [Read More]

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 turn around you aren't going to find it. This little thing has been a joy to use! Things only got better once [Read More]

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. Then we fawn over some bits of plastic. [Read More]

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 and, we discuss how perfect the latest Sabaton album is. You can find it over at Soundcloud. [Read More]

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 is. So if you want to watch the first 40 minutes of me faffing about and being awful at computer games, see [Read More]

Halo 5

I've got a love hate hate relationship with Halo 5. I am inexplicably invested in a series where the main character emotes less than a block of cheese. Since Halo 3 I've been hooked. The teenage power fantasy of being that power armoured super soldier still appeals and probably always will. I've played all the games to some extent and 10 months after Halo 5 was release it's about time [Read More]
