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!

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.

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

Gameplay – Wizard Of Legend

Posted by Rob, January 12, 2020 11:14 am

Videos are back! We’ve got fire, ice, lightning, basic wind and poopy earth magic. We’re not sure if that’s legendary or just wizarding par.

SaladCast 255 (2nd December 2019) – Luigi’s Automation Sword

Posted by Rob, December 3, 2019 10:07 pm

The wait is almost over. We’re nearly at the best number. We’re positive you’ll agree. For now, in this episode we look forward to award season, critique a V and talk about everyone’s favorite topic, YouTube controversy.

In this Podcast:

Sonic Advance 2 – Part 1

Posted by Rob, December 2, 2019 9:43 am

We didn’t know the second part of the Sonic Advance games would need more than one part itself…

SaladCast 254 (17th November 2019) – Luigi’s Outer Cry

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.

In this Podcast:

Gameplay – Lethal League Blaze – Dust & Ashes

Posted by Rob, November 18, 2019 8:23 pm

New character alert! New video alert!

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.

In this Podcast:

Gameplay – Overcooked, 3 player

Posted by Rob, November 1, 2019 4:53 pm

Why 3 players you might ask? We’ve played a chunk of this in 4 player and wanted to see how it balanced to 3. Plus Dan was about, which was nice.

SaladCast 252 (19th October 2019) – EGXstained

Posted by Rob, October 20, 2019 10:26 am

EGX 2019 has been occurring and once again Rob has been checking out as much as he can get his hands on. Dan and Zac stayed at home so Rob must recite his adventures to them.
Also in this episode, Bloodstained, Zelda, supermarket design, Oxygen Not Included and that Blizzard news.

Salacast 251 (6th October 2019) – Bloodstained Goose Awakening

Posted by Rob, October 7, 2019 8:01 pm

Somehow October has crept up on us in a lederhosen. Stay vigilant out there.
In this episode we have pretending to care about Star Wars, Oktoberfest history and some games that don’t involve a screen alongside the games that need a screen. That’ll be Gears 5, Untitled Goose Game, Bloodstained and Link’s Awakening then.
