People On This Episode
Fab and Dave discuss Gamescom, the classic games Schleichfahrt and AquaNox as well as hipster blog platforms and Season 2 of The Expanse.
Dave tells us about his holiday is Scotland and how he enabled Let’s Encrypt for his Ghost blog. Fab’s been trying to set up Hugo. Dave’s also compiled a new list of the podcasts he’s subscribed to. We also get into an Android/iPhone discussion for some reason.
Fab reports from Gamescom (even though that’s been over for weeks now), including how saw Sabaton and reported on Angela Merkel opening the trade show. After that week, Fab is really fed up with YouTube influencers now.
Speaking of games, Fab revisits his favourite game ever: Schleichfahrt. This game is known by the horrible game Archimedean Dynasty in the Englisch speaking market. It’s available on GOG.
There were two sequels: AquaNox and AquaNox 2: Revelation. THQ Nordic is now working on a reboot called AquaNox: Deep Decent.
The second season of The Expanse is now on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it already, you should do so immediately. We recap why we like it so much. It’s so much better than Game of Thrones.
Dave bought a Nintendo Switch with The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. He’s been enjoying the console a lot.
At the end of the episode we address your feedback.

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!
