Posted by Rob, May 20, 2019 9:53 pm

The endorphin rush that comes from exercise might be the greatest shared lie in history. Don’t be fooled by attempts to drag you into their shared misery. Stay inside and enjoy a slice of podcast instead.

Detective Pikachu, retro games, Nomad smugness and some CoD BlOps pad out the usual games, news and random.

Posted by Rob, April 14, 2019 12:36 pm

In the wake of Sonic Mania, Sonic Forces didn’t get a whole lot of praise. Maybe we should have followed Sonic’s advice and said “no” to playing it, but here we are. We had to know.

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.

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.

We honestly didn’t know that Cadence of the Hyrule was going to be announced when we played and recorded this. Hooray for accidental timeliness?
