Return of the Obra Dinn – Part 6, Looks A Bit Matey

Posted by Rob, July 26, 2020 2:44 pm

We’ve got a long way to go before we figure out how EVERYONE died or disappeared. It’d really help if we stopped misremembering things. At least we’ll have more content for a while eh?

SaladCast 272 (19th July 2020) – Dubisolver

Posted by Rob, July 19, 2020 7:34 pm

Devolver Digital and Ubisoft have submitted their Gameovision entries for this year but without many surprises. It might not surprise you that we talk about what was actually shown once you filter out all the weird Devolver story stuff. OK so we’re running a little low on surprises right now but a couple of suppliers may have the goods soon.

Portal 2 Co-op, Part 1 – Excellent Ballfeel

Posted by Rob, July 19, 2020 1:19 pm

Things could always do with more testing, but testing the patience of the happysalad crew might be a questionable choice. Perhaps Portal 2’s co-op is supposed to be about solving puzzles but Zac and Rob know what’s really going on.

SaladCast 271 (5th July 2020) – Valool Creepory

Posted by Rob, July 6, 2020 6:59 pm

I’m spending my time thinking about alternative doomsday theories. If cats cast aside their differences with the pigeons, their web of information could bring down governments. They know what they’re doing and I’m onto them.

In this episode we pick out a few things from New Game +, discuss the return of live sports, play Pool Panic and Creeper World 4 and check in on a few regulars.

In this Podcast:

Animal Crossing New Horizons, Astroneer, Billion Road, Creeper World 4, FUSER, Oxygen Not Included, Pool Panic, Satisfactory, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, VALORANT, Yakuza Kiwami 2, and more!

Return of the Obra Dinn – Part 5, Sea Cops

Posted by Rob, June 20, 2020 7:30 am


Finishing off all the available death scenes, it’s left to our detective trio to sleuth out the culprits. Justice, betrayal, art and rain lies ahead.

Return of the Obra Dinn – Part 4, What Madness is This?

Posted by Rob, June 11, 2020 7:04 pm

We’ve still got plenty of deaths to revisit and still plenty more furrowing of our collective brow to do as things get weird even away from the Obra Dinn. RIP Barrel.

SaladCast 268 (31st May 2020) – Streetaria of Halorant

Posted by Rob, June 1, 2020 9:31 pm

The driest May on record is over but the drought is coming to an end. Just look at this episode. We have news about future news, The Wholesome Direct and The Last of Us Part II. The rain is coming! We also talk about some games what we played like Streets of Rage, Valorant, Terraria and Halo 2.

Return of the Obra Dinn – Part 3, En Dæmon

Posted by Rob, May 23, 2020 12:30 am

Just when you think things aboard the Dinn had been a little odd, you learn something even stranger. This ship was never meant to sail.

SaladCast 267 (17th May 2020) – Scrapuza Valorantics

Posted by Rob, May 18, 2020 5:54 pm

Sensing the effects that Eurovision withdrawal is having on the morale of the populous, the games industry has rallied to produce some hype. These things may have happened in reverse order but all the best theories are based on some notion of “close enough”.

We have Unreal Engine 5, Xbox Series X “gameplay”, and a smattering a games like Valorant, Streets of Rage 4, Scrap Mechanic and that Terraria patch.

Return of the Obra Dinn – Part 2, Fresh

Posted by Rob, May 18, 2020 5:37 pm

There’s some properly nasty stuff at sea. Big, nasty, murdery stuff. You’ll see.

SaladCast 266 (2nd May 2020) – Animal Yakuza Tactics

Posted by Rob, May 3, 2020 9:46 am

I don’t want to alarm you all, but there’s something called news here and they want to say hi. Would it be OK if we invited them in, just for this episode? It’s only little. Probably won’t bite. I bet our discussions on Yakuza Kiwami 2, Animal Crossing and Gears Tactics will cheer it right up.

Stay inside, stay safe, play games.

Return of the Obra Dinn – Part 1, It’s Too Heavy

Posted by Rob, May 3, 2020 9:26 am

Mysteries to be solved, murder to be relived, dithering to be endured. The Obra Dinn needs a detective and we’ve got three!

SaladCast 265 (19th April 2020) – Infarted Crossemption

Posted by Rob, April 19, 2020 9:12 pm

Time for another round of lockdown podcast. Has the madness set in or have the crew turned more normal? Which is which?
There’s not a lot of news but we’ll never run out of games. Rob finds and leaves an island, Zac remodels an island and Dan… breaks this stupid sentence.

Posted by Rob, April 12, 2020 12:24 pm

So we tried Steam’s Remote Play Together via the means of Assault Android Cactus. The results were… messy.

SaladCast 264 (5th April 2020) – Crossing the Will of the Groove

Posted by Rob, April 6, 2020 9:32 am

Times are weird but for gamers much remains the same. Take comfort in the fact that your backlog will still be there, gin is readily available and Counter Strike players will still be the worst people alive.

In this episode we talk about all the time to play games, Zoom, TV, Ori, Animals Crossing, Steam Remote Play Together, Bravely Default 2 and other stuff.

Rough Cuts – Eldritch (no commentary)

Posted by Rob, March 27, 2020 12:22 pm

Rob goes back and plays a bit more Eldritch, badly. Here’s the raw footage if that’s your kind of thing. It’s clearly not Rob’s.

Gameplay – FEZ

Posted by Rob, March 26, 2020 7:01 am

At first glance, it’s easy to dismiss FEZ as just an indie platformer with perspective tricks, but this rabbit hole runs deep. Shame you can’t show a lot of that genius in just 1 hour of gameplay. Zac and Rob don the hat of dimensionality regardless.
