Episode 013.2 (8th September 2010) Tardcast

Posted by Rob, September 8, 2010 10:19 pm

I thought this week went slightly better than our last attempt to cast without Dan. The universe has other plans though and a slew of technical issues may affect today’s performance. Glitchy networks and the wrong microphone lead to an inferior sound. The content itself is much better! It’s not really a Minicast as planned either, it’s full length baby!

We cover awesome dude of the moment, Scott Pilgrim in his game guise, upcoming release Halo Reach and most of the other Halo games and go totally in depth on Team Fortress 2 as usual.

In this Podcast:

Big Red Racing, Dirt 2, Double Dragon, Dwarf Fortress, Fighting Force, Freedom Force, Halo 3, Halo 3 ODST, Halo Reach, iPhone 4, iPlayer, Limited Editions, Mario Party, Mario Party 8, MiniCast, Monster Truck Madness, Playstation Home, Pokémon Black and White, Quidco, Red Faction Guerilla, Road Rash, Robot Unicorn Attack, SaladCast, Scott Pilgrim vs The World: The Game, Second Life, Tanktics, Team Fortress 2, Wii Party, and more!

Episode 013.1 (23rd August 2010) Minicast!

Posted by Rob, August 23, 2010 11:33 pm

As we’re a man down we can’t really call this a proper SaladCast. Zac and Rob soldier on anyway. The results were… different.

We talk a bit more Borderlands including the game’s finale and our start on the DLC before meandering into Left 4 Dead and a few other games before our minds sorta wander off. I guess we tire without focus and disciprin.

Come back Dan!

Posted by Rob, August 14, 2010 10:14 pm

We get quite a lot covered this week as Rob investigates new games available in Demo Land including Limbo, Scott Pilgrim and Hydro Thunder! Dan and Zac do get a bit of a look in though and talk more Civilisation and Red Faction although Rob talks about them too. Why don’t we just call it the Rob show and be done with it?

I think we may have a new tag list record! We do cover a lot of ground!

Episode 012 (4th August 2010)

Posted by Rob, August 4, 2010 10:50 pm

Let’s just be straight about this. This episode is SPOILERIFIC! Consider this your one and only warning. This does mean we can get Mass Effect 2 out of our system. Rob and Zac also give their Red Faction: Guerilla impressions and we attempt to decipher Inception.

Posted by Rob, July 24, 2010 11:26 pm

I’m not sure we could really have talked much more about Mass Effect 2 this week.

Anyway, after explaining the massive gap since the last episode we do talk about some games including a preview impression of Metroid: Other M, in depth Civilisation IV discussion, The Engineer Update and did I mention Mass Effect 2?

Did I get away with shifting Zeg from right to left btw?

It’s E3!!!!

So we attempt do the right thing and talk about all the upcoming games and technology we may not have been paying attention to! Plenty of speculation and doubt is sprinkled over the usual hope that accompanies a good trailer… or at least it appears to be some kind of white powder… doubt is white isn’t it?

Once again Zac and Rob occupy the same physical space in the run up to Zeg’s PC heaven.

Rob gets to speak for some length of time this week about recent drivers Dirt 2 and Sonic and Sega All-Star Racing. The planetary interaction patch for Eve has dropped and Zac gives us the low down…

Episode 008 (31st May 2010)

Posted by Rob, May 31, 2010 8:42 pm

Dan puts on an epic display giving a complete review of Red Dead Redemption. Zeg talks more Eve patch weirdness and revisits Prince of Persia seeing as its relevant at the moment. Rob plays Dan’s game and keeps on mentioning Mass Effect 2 throughout.

We also see the addition of a theme tune which I’m told is supposed to make us sound more professional. It’s a bit of a remix of an old tune that gave happysalad its name. Cheese is unavoidable.

Zac talks about Eve and spots some trains, Rob lets rip  on Uncharted 2 and Bioshock while Dan is affected by Mass Effect 2. But first we have to sort out a few things about the podcast.
