SaladCast 215 (3rd June 2018) – Aces of Decay

Posted by Rob, June 4, 2018 7:12 pm

Also in this episode, Battlefield V, State of Decay 2, Surviving Mars, Fallout 76, PUBG, Laser League, Terratech, Team Sonic Racing, Don’t Starve, Risk of Rain, Rocket League and always more Zelda.

Posted by Rob, June 2, 2018 12:50 pm

Gameplay – Revolt (RVGL)

Posted by Rob, May 22, 2018 9:18 pm

There aren’t many racing cars that let you drive a Panda with wheels for feet, but then there aren’t many physics based kart racers featuring RC cars at all (lies). Zac and Rob revisit a good one, courtesy of the RVGL mod.

SaladCast 213 (7th May 2018) – Halo Wipers

Posted by Rob, May 7, 2018 7:07 pm

“Bank holiday comes six times a year. Days of enjoyment to which everyone cheers. Bank holiday comes with six-pack of beer, Then it’s back to work A-G-A-I-N”.
Blur was a good game.

In this episode, a foody bit, a techy bit, a filmy bit and then a gamey bit.

Gameplay – Sonic Colours, Part 2 – Pretty Gassy

Posted by Rob, April 30, 2018 5:49 pm

Gameplay – Sonic Colours, Part 1 – Premeditated Misdeeds

Posted by Rob, April 21, 2018 7:32 pm

We’ve defended Sonic Colours countless times on the SaladCast so we should probably attempt to demonstrate why. Zac and Rob have a rave and get the munchies in Tropical Resort and Sweet Mountain.

Presented in lovely 1080p thanks to emulation via Dolphin.

SaladCast 211 (8th April 2018) – Super Breachroid

Posted by Rob, April 9, 2018 9:42 pm

Posted by Rob, February 26, 2018 5:30 pm

Gameplay – Eets Munchies

Posted by Rob, February 24, 2018 11:56 am

Presumably part of the mobile focused “guide thing to food” puzzle genre, Eets Munchies has a lot of work to do to impress Zac and Rob. Who’s hungry?

Gameplay – Dyad

Posted by Rob, February 12, 2018 8:06 pm

There aren’t a lot of words that accurately describe Dyad. You squid your way down blurry pipes doing things to glowing balls whilst computers sing to you. Zac and Rob swallow the appropriate pills.

Posted by Rob, January 30, 2018 10:04 pm

Remember that thing you were going to do? Do that. Remember the food you needed to buy? Go get that. Remember that place you had to be? Go there. Don’t fancy any of that? Oh alright, have a SaladCast.

Gameplay – Dust: An Elysian Tail

Posted by Rob, January 28, 2018 1:10 pm

In this episode you can get some Steamworld Dig 2, that Star Wars film, Rise to Ruins, Forza Horizon 3, electro-notifications, Hand of Fate 2, IKEA, Mass Effect 2, Flinthook and Mario Tennis.

SaladCast Season 5 Test Reel

Posted by Rob, January 7, 2018 11:28 am

When we record the SaladCast we tend to leave the mics open for a while before we get started for real. This not only serves as a test but a chance to record some bizarre sound clip which we present to you here.
Yes Season 5 was wrapped up nearly 3 years ago now and most of this doesn’t make any sense but it still makes us smile a little bit. Enjoy.

In this Podcast:

Outtakes, Season 5, Test Reels, and more!
