Can't Handle Torpedoes

Dave has been playing World of Warships and Fab reviews Subnautica. We also discuss how The Orville stacks up against Star Trek: Discovery.

Fab has started a German PC games podcast with his mate Martin. It is called Kantenglättung Deluxe. They are aiming to release a show every month.

FOSS Talk Live tickets are on sale right now. Dave will be there, Fab probably not since he’s a fucking slacker.


We start the show off with some news:

Firefox is starting to promote sponsored pages.

Ubuntu is collecting more user data and apparently everyone is outraged.

These flight sim devs are stealing your passwords if you pirate their planes. German story from Fab (falls du Deutsch sprichst).


In the next segment, we pitch Star Trek: Discovery against The Orville. We both like Discovery, but Dave isn’t very hot on The Orville. Surprisingly, Fab likes both series. They definitely have their flaws, though and we thoroughly talk through these.


Dave has been playing World of Warships and talks about his torpedo woes.


Meanwhile, Fab has put a good 30 hours in Subnautica so he reviews it. Not only is it beautiful, it also has a very engaging story told in a very reasonable way.


In other news, Fab has submitted a story pitch to Black Library.

As usual, we end the show with your feedback. Thanks for sending us messages!

Fab (played by Tom Hardy) and Dave (played by his Labrador).

Show Notes

We’re back! Including Earl Grey martinis, mad barons and Star Trek talk. Strap in and enjoy the show.

We are back after a rather long hiatus. Fab has been on holiday all of October and is now convinced that Fiji is the nicest spot on the planet. Dave, who’s back from some time in the Lake District has to update him on everything that happened since, especially KRACK.

Fab’s been reading an excellent Stalin biography, which also includes mention of “the bloody white baron” Roman von Ungern-Sternberg.

After Schleichfahrt, Fab finished AquaNox and is now playing AquaNox 2. Also, since Heat Signature is now out, we will talk about it in depth in an upcoming episode.

In non-game-related news, Dave has seen The Orville and wasn’t impressed much. He prefers Star Trek: Discovery, which has progressed a lot since we last talked about it. Dave and Fab are still enjoying it a lot. Chief engineer Paul Stamets is named after this guy.

Twitter now allows 280 characters in posts. Bullshit!

We end the show with your feedback, which probably will be twice as long going forward. Thanks, Twitter.
