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.

Assault Android Cactus – Steam Remote Play Together

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.
This video is recorded from the host’s perspective and so isn’t representative of the streaming video quality. The rest of what happened, happened.

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.

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

Posted by Rob, March 22, 2020 10:20 am

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!

Suity McCashflow

In this Podcast:

Animal Crossing New Horizons, Call of Duty: Warzone, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Halo 3 ODST, Luigi's Mansion 3, Ori and the Will of the Wisps, Two Point Hospital, and more!

Gameplay – Expand

Posted by Rob, March 15, 2020 9:18 am

Expand appears to be about a square being stuck in a round maze. Perhaps this is a message about pegs and holes. Zac and Rob attempt to hammer that square home.

SaladCast 262 (8th March 2020) – Indigrispital

Posted by Rob, March 9, 2020 7:10 pm

Let’s get topical for a moment. Apparently we’re all going to be spending a lot of time indoors, scrubbing our hands, sitting on the loo, so why not spend some of your isolation time with us? You’ve got plenty of it to spare! In this episode, interesting news is still light but games do still exist to be played!

In this Podcast:

Final Fantasy VII Remake, GRIS, Half Life: Alyx, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Indivisible, Mindustry, Oxygen Not Included, Rocket League, The Last of Us, Two Point Hospital, and more!

Sonic Advance 2 (Part 2) – Bad Levels

Posted by Rob, March 7, 2020 6:30 pm

At this point it’s becoming clear that we either had nostalgia goggles on or we are just not that good at this. Time to struggle through some bad levels.

SaladCast 261 (23rd February 2020) – Man’s Hospisible

Posted by Rob, February 24, 2020 8:50 pm

Hi there Dan fans! Have we got 0% of a podcast for you! Dan is off doing something somewhere so you get Zac and Rob alone, unhosted. We’ve got patches, new Game Pass plays and some Sonic of the Hedgehog variety.

In this Podcast:

Animal Crossing New Horizons, Indivisible, No Man's Sky, Oxygen Not Included, Soul Calibur VI, The Outer Wilds, Two Point Hospital, and more!

Minecraft – Thunderbirds Adventure 2

Posted by Rob, February 16, 2020 6:20 pm

Dan may have insisted we do this out of brotherly connection, but this is actually pretty cool.

SaladCast 260 (9th February 2020) – No Outer Strands

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.

In this Podcast:

Death Stranding, Dwarf Fortress, Final Fantasy VII Remake, No Man's Sky, Overwatch, Rocket League, Stardew Valley, The Outer Wilds, Warcraft 3: Reforged, Wargroove, and more!

Wizard of Legend – Puns of Genericism

Posted by Rob, February 1, 2020 9:24 pm

Zac’s been unlocking some more stuff so another run is required!

SaladCast 259 (26th January 2020) – Disco Man’s Stranding Wilds

Posted by Rob, January 27, 2020 6:44 pm

Be our guest, be our guest, have this suspicious treasure chest.
Please go on and open, don’t be shy.
Be our guest, be our guest, for you we have another quest.
From this Mimic kindly save our cowardly hides!

We might have had a guest alongside us talking about Picard, delays, Byleth and those games what we play.

In this Podcast:

Death Stranding, Disco Elysium, Kerbal Space Program, No Man's Sky, Stardew Valley, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, The Outer Wilds, Wargroove, and more!
