SaladCast 237 (7th April 2019) – Just Enter the Hospital

Posted by Rob, April 8, 2019 12:18 pm

OK so something bad happened to this podcast. It kinda killed its own past like in Enter the Gungeon so it’s getting reposted and back dated like it never happened.
In this episode, literal XBOX leaks, Playstation Direct, the Bioware story and more Epic Store drama.

Gameplay – Crypt of the Necrodancer – Co-op

Posted by Rob, April 1, 2019 2:28 pm

Dancing is generally considered better with two people, so it stands to reason that rhythmic dungeon hopping would be better too. Zac and Rob get to hop stabbing.

SaladCast 233 (10th February 2019) – God of Astrothem

Posted by Rob, February 11, 2019 7:59 pm

One theory about the SaladCast is that we are just part of a long flashback sequence. In the present, two spiky haired dudes charge up for a bit of a fight. We do not yet know how we are relevant to the greater plot. Perhaps we’ll get there.
