Instanews #4: 2012-02-18

42 mins - Published Sat, Feb 18, 2012 by Arkenor Oakshadow, Breki Tomasson and Jack Marshall

Jack seems to have fixed his audio issues, so with a special mid-episode visit from Arkenor, we set off for another episode of Geek Positive!

This time around, we talk about Jack’s viewing of Game of Thrones, moving on to upcoming Assassin’s Creed 3 and the rumors surrounding Blizzard’s job posting for a Franchise Development Producer. We then had a nice little visit from Arkenor, who had a few choice words to say about Wurm Online. We then covered the news in brief, including some good news from the European Court of Justice and some bad news from developer Starbreeze.

Find all the links to things we’ve talked about on and post links to things you want us to talk about!

Find us at @BrekiT and @Tofu_Jack; we’ll be back in a couple of days!


Instanews was another one of Breki's attempts to create a tech news podcast in the long chain of iterative podcasts that includes Geek Positive, CSICON Radio, The Brainstorm and Geekdays. It ran for 129 episodes, initially co-hosted by Jack Marshall and, in the final run of episodes, by Teppo Tastic.

Both Petter Mårtensson and Arkenor Oakshadow featured as regular guests for a segment known as The Deathmatch of Death and More Death, a ladder-style competition that pit heroes and villains from popular culture against each other. Petter and Arkenor would argue the case for their randomly picked hero of the week, and listeners would vote via the website.
