Err... What?

Mike, Dave and Fab discuss the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the Uber self-driving car accident. And of course, there’s Warhammer 40K talk.

Fab discovers that in Denmark, they also watch Dinner for One religiously on New Years. Mike and Fab then have to explain this concept to the Brit in the room.

Dave’s despairing over his Pixel C at last. Fab recommends he buy a real man’s laptop.


In this episode we, uncharacteristically, talk about the news.

The AI cars have started killing people.

And then there’s this business with Cambridge Analytica.


We give an update on our #4Feldherren plans and end the show by addressing your feedback. A discussion between Halefa and Jonathan M. H. was particularly funny. We also found some video games that have worse names than Divinity: Original Sin II. Some examples:

Dave mentions the new Hoops mode in Rocket League and asks Fab why he doesn’t like Eurovision. He then proceeds to rant about all the stupid stuff from Google I/O. Fab says he’ll create a Google Allo account called General von Klinkerhoffen. That’s an ‘Allo ‘Allo reference.

Fab talks about the developer console from hell in Doom and then dives into explaining why Stellaris is awesome. You should definitely read this Eurogamer piece on it, it’s dead funny and brilliantly written. Stellaris also has a 40K mod.
