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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

SaladCast 263 (21st March 2020) – Ori and the Animal Warzone

A message from the happysalad CEO:

With 2020 shaping up to be mighty weird year in many many ways, it’s important that we pull together, be considerate and follow scientific and medical advice from the appropriate sources. Fortunately this changes very little for a podcast about video games. There’s still news, games and banter to be had. We’ve been here ten years, and there will be at least ten more, so come get some Season 11!

In this episode we have event cancellations but then there’s next-gen console specs and some great new game releases. Chin up!

Posted by Rob, February 10, 2020 8:41 pm

This episode is sick. Not the radical kind but the ill kind. No, not the good ill either. Rob’s sick, Zac’s sick and our equipment is a bit sick. What results is a concoction of games, wind, news and coughing. We got off lightly.

Posted by Rob, November 18, 2019 8:53 pm

With Sony still playing coy with big news events Microsoft steps up to put on a show that’s a bit better than XO18. They called it XO19 and we’re covering that.
We’re also playing those hot bangers like Outer Worlds and Luigi’s Mansion 3 and then describing them with words. So many words.

SaladCast 253 (2nd November 2019) – Link May Autocry

Posted by Rob, November 2, 2019 6:20 pm

There were probably a lot of tears this morning as England came second in the rugby World Cup but you can’t spell tears without tea, so we talk a bit about that instead. There’s also some Devil May Cry 5, Autonauts and maybe a bit more understanding about what Death Stranding actually is.
