SaladCast 128 (25th January 2015) – Infinidrive

Posted by Rob, January 25, 2015 9:32 pm

I don’t work in the manufacturing industry but if I did I would want everything to be made by robot arms, possibly robot arms making robot arms to make more robot arms. Perhaps this is the true singularity. It’s got nothing to do with AI, just a pile of robot arms that eventually engulfs the planet. Oh how I muse.

In this episode: Sunset Overdrive, Halo Nightfall, Infinifactory, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Factorio, Guild Wars 2, Hololens, Halo 5: Guardians and Transistor.

Gameplay – Transistor

Given that we couldn’t really decide on a game of the year for 2014 properly this time over at, we thought we should at least give Zac’s pick a bit of a look. So here is Supergiant Games’ Transistor in full colour.

SaladCast 127 (10th January 2014) – Oversistor

Posted by Rob, January 11, 2015 12:46 pm

It’s official, January sucks. Trying to remember how you functioned before having a ton of time off to just lounge about and play video games is really hard, the gaming news dries up and it’s cold. Is “post-holiday-depression” a thing?

Help counter those January blues with an episode of the SaladCast! In our first podcast of 2015 we talk about a few films, DDoS attacks, Valkyria Chronicles, Guild Wars 2, Transistor, Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive.

Internet routers suck too.

Zac and Rob make it to the B’s in their Steam A-Z thanks to Banished, a town management sim reminiscent of some of the ideas from the original Settlers. Zac instructs Rob how to live when all you have is a few highly skilled workers and nature.

Posted by Rob, December 15, 2014 8:59 am

Awwww yeah! It’s about time we did this! Rob finally gets to try and show Zac why he loves this game. “Awesome” is in the title so it’s gotta be good, right?

GlacialSpoon – Saria’s Drop

Posted by Rob, November 29, 2014 1:02 pm

So Rob will ocassionally abuse the air in the form of making some music under the guise of “GlacialSpoon” but this is a first. His remix of The Lost Woods entitled “Saria’s Drop” made it onto OCRemix, the popular collection of fan made video game music remasters. You can check it out right here via youtube:

If you want a bit more you can visit the SoundCloud here.

(Yes, the OCRemix video got the artist name wrong)

SaladCast 122 (1st November 2014) – Bayolization

Posted by Rob, November 2, 2014 10:27 am

According to dispatch emails from Tesco Direct, games can now be shipped and have a chance to arrive BEFORE they were shipped. If there’s some secret time travel tech being used in large scale consumerism then local business is really going to struggle now. Does Amazon have secret teleporters? Does ASDA stock it’s shelves by ballistic cannon? Does Morrison’s have high speed underground mag-levs deploying pies across the nation? If any of this is true, the Pizza delivery business needs to invest now!

In this episode of the SaladCast: Bayonetta, Civilization: Beyond Earth, Titanfall, Awesomenauts, Theatrhythm: Curtain Call, Halo: Master Chief Collection, Super Smash Bros. For Wii U, Valkyria Chronicles, Toybox Turbos, Dying Light, Human Resources, PS4 firmware and mispronunciation.
