SaladCast 118 (7th September 2014) – Batmanization

Posted by Rob, September 8, 2014 5:18 pm

At this moment, writing something topical and entertaining seems to be the last thing my brain wants to attempt. Having just finished my working day, my thoughts are littered with fragments of code, all swimming through a sea of tabs, keywords and semicolons, battling for my attention. They will not get it now but their time of rest is some way off. Developers are weird.

In this episode we discuss our old game making endeavours (again), Unity, New 3DS, Twitch, Quantum Break, Pokken, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Gamergate, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, Starbound, Kerbal Space Program, Batman: Arkham City, Civilization V, Mario Kart 8 and there’s also our “now fast becoming a regular feature” bit where Zac gives FTL advice.

Eating – The Spinning Noodle Fork

Posted by Rob, August 25, 2014 10:19 am

Once it arrived, this had to be done. Watch Rob attempt to stuff his face with noodles with a spinning noodle fork on his first try. Could this be the future of noodles?

Note that we’re aware the audio is bit skippy. It recorded like this for some reason and so there are weird cuts.

SaladCast 117 (24th August 2014) – Tiny Witcher

Posted by Rob, August 25, 2014 10:17 am

So despite it being an episode with a number that coincides with one of Rob’s favourite game series, we fail to bring up the connection with John-117, better known as Master Chief. So now the connection has been made Rob can continue his internal monologue that constantly hypes the Halo Master Chief Collection.

In this bumper episode we talk a lot of crap but also mention Gamescom, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Super Time Force, Super Time Force Ultra, Forza Horizon 2, Minimum, Plants Vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Guardians of the Galaxy, FTL, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, Beyond: Two Souls, The Witcher 2, Crimson Dragon, Tiny & Big in Grandpa’s Leftovers, Evolve and other nonsense.

SaladCast 115 (27th July 2014) – Artisan Chip Van

Posted by Rob, July 27, 2014 11:55 pm

It’s quite nice that the “home nations” can still win international medals at the Commonwealth Games. But don’t think too hard about it as you’ll soon realise that we’re only beating ourselves. I’ll take it though.

In this episode there’s a noodle fork update, Broken Age, EVE Online, Minecraft, Destiny, Crysis 2, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Super Time Force, Titanfall, The Pinball Arcade, Kerbal Space Program, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and chicken produce enhanced by the wind.

Replace “Chip” with a less clean word.

LATS: Lightning = Anger

Posted by Rob, July 13, 2014 9:53 am

Look at this sherbert. Coming up with original promotional material and art must be tough, but there are times when I think people aren’t trying anymore. Take these two promotional images found on Steam recently. Apparently these are not the same game but if it wasn’t for the title text how would you know?

Might and Magic Dual of Champions and Risen 3 promotional images.
