LATS – Infinifactory #23 of 100

Posted by Rob, January 31, 2015 5:15 pm

Badge and Certificate

Look at this shiny! Despite thinking it wasn’t very likely on the Saladcast, Zac did in fact end by being in the first 100 people to complete the game and can’t help but show off his loyalty to Zachtronic Industries. It’s not just a bold claim either as the game’s creator sent him a patch to attach. Bask in his glory.

Check out Zac in his usual science attire after the break.

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)

LATS: Lightning = Anger

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.

LATS: Origin Humble Bundle

The Origin Humble Bundle

So EA are the next big publisher to get involved with the charity helping mega sale organisation Humble Bundle. A humble bundle is always a good thing but this is especially unexpected given that EA has publicly snubbed the idea of having good sales on Origin and is not especially humble. What’s unsurprising is just how lacklustre EA’s line up can look. I’d say 3 of those games are good, 2 middling and the rest skippable. It seems Dead Space 3 did so much to ruin the Dead Space name that Dead Space 2 seems to have done a runner past the half-time reveal. But what else may appear? Would SimCity tempt you?


Still, it is a bargain and the website claims EA will not take any profit from this so go help some charities. Also check out the full YouTube advert thing after the break, it’s pretty good as always.

LATS: New Super Luigi U

Posted by Rob, June 3, 2013 7:08 pm

Look at this sh… sewage. Nintendo come under fire for being a little boring and repetitive from time to time. They do keep making new Mario Karts and new Zeldas but those are often great games and just about unique enough to warrant picking up.

We at happysalad and a few other places around the webs are not so sure that the New Super Mario Bros series deserves the same respect. There’s been quite a few of these “New” games now and they don’t really appear to change much. If this box art for Super Luigi U is anything to go by Nintendo just isn’t trying anymore…

New Super Mario Bros. U Box Art

Play a game of “Spot the Shared Assets”. There’s a few. I also wonder what caused the PEGI rating to change. Is Luigi’s tale a little darker, a little too real for 3 year-olds?
