Show Notes

We’re bravely ignoring the fact that the world is ending soon to play Civilization VI and talk about spaceships and Blood Bowl.

The End Times are upon us, but at least Dave has fixed his PC. Therefore we can talk about many interesting things while we are waiting on the world to be completely fucked over in the wake of the US presidential election.

Dave tells us of his experience at EVE London, which to be honest just sounds like an excuse to get drunk. The Expanse is now on Netflix and Fab’s been watching it again in all it’s glory, which he talks about at length. He also gives away the code to unlock him as a playable character in The Curious Expedition.

We discuss the Metalcaptcha and Tim “The Machine” Wiese, who is fearsome, no matter what sport he plays.

Meanwhile, the Internet of Shit goes nuclear and some folks are kickstarting a Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill game called Slaps and Beans. Of course, Fab has to explain to the Brit who the hell Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill are…

We move on to talk about Doctor Strange and the new version of the Blood Bowl board game, which you can pre-order on Saturday. In the main part of the show, Fab and Dave have a long conversation around the good and bad things about Civilization VI.

Show Notes

Dave’s fallen in love with Stardew Valley and Fab is angry about gay frogs, the Panama Papers, Ubuntu on Windows and NPM.

Merle Haggard has died, which makes Fab sad. Listen to more Merle, once you’re done with that, listen to Deer Tick. The Expanse is out on Blu-ray!

Fab’s been looking into the new end-to-end encryption on WhatsApp. More details on that soon. We also discuss the big NPM debacle and their recent security vulnerability.

In what-the-fuck-news, Microsoft goes Linux:

Dave mentions the Maryland hospital that got ransomwared. Fab thinks he prefers the HoloLens to VR.

We discuss the Panama Papers and Tam McGleish.

Dave actually thinks Badman v. Superman was great. He’s serious. He saw it twice! After that madness, he gives his final word on The Division and goes into a huge declaration of love for Stardew Valley.
