Show Notes

Once again, Dave and Fab bring you everthing: rants, laughter, lethargy. We talk Zelda, the Nintendo Switch, Tom Hardy’s Taboo and the current Elite Dangerous beta.

David sent us some beer and Fab’s enjoying it during the show.

Fab’s been massively enjoying Tom Hardy’s Taboo. So naturally, we talk about it. You need to watch it. Watch it now!

Meanwhile, Dave’s been playing highly relevant game releases. Like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Something, something, Punished Venom Pancake, something, something, exploding ghost soldier whale.

In more serious game news, Fab’s been trying the new Zelda game on the Nintendo Switch. We talk about that too. Joy or Con?

Dave likes watches that are slow. Which probably explains why he plays video games that are years out of date. Fab will probably never buy another watch again. Probably also because he’s spending all of his time in the current Elite Dangerous 2.3 Beta “The Commanders”, creating himself over and over again in the new character creator Holo-Me.

He even made it into the official Elite Dangerous newsletter with this shit. In other Elite news, the RPG is back and got funded on Kickstarter!

We talk about Mozilla buying Pocket and their plans for Firefox. Dave reviews Logan. We then pimp OggCamp 2017 as well as FOSS Talk Live and end the show with your feedback. Well, that and pith helmets. And pickelhauben pith helmets. Wat.

Show Notes

This time around, it’s all about professional wrestling and invading Poland in Hearts of Iron IV.

Sorry for missing a show. We promise we’ll make it up to you over the next few weeks before we take a short holiday time-out at the beginning of July.

Dave was on Two Star Podcast.

The Rock vs. Big Show

He’s also been watching a lot of professional wrestling and we chat about faces, heels and kayfabe. Dave really digs Sami Zayn, while Fab is still a massive fan of The Rock.

The Euro is coming up. We talk about our favourite teams. Fab is obsessed with the Germany kits. We also discuss horrible OEM updater code.

Fab mentions the recent raid on the Lovoo headquarters.

This was based on research by Fab’s colleagues at c’t. In other news, Jacob Appelbaum is in serious trouble.

Fab explains why Hearts of Iron IV is censored in Germany. We also tell the story of how he got around that. He gives a brief impression of what the game is like. It basically feels like you’re commanding a real army. With all the bureaucracy and shit.

As a side effect of playing the game, Fab now really likes Sabaton.

Hearts of Iron IV

We end the show with your feedback. While discussing this, Fab mentions his bike mechanic and we get recommended a podcast called Those Conspiracy Guys.
