Saladcast 168 (14th August 2016) – No Man’s Doom

Posted by Rob, August 15, 2016 11:21 am

It’s time for the Salad Games 2016. For the first event we must embrace the new tradition of there being at least one interruption Rob has to deal with per episode. We refer to an classic problem maker, the doorbell. How long into the episode do we make it before it rings? The winner is the closest guess and will win a golden delicious apple they must purchase themselves.

Posted by Rob, July 17, 2016 10:05 am

Rob often gets a bit of a ribbing from his cohorts about what he considers newsworthy for the cast but this week fate leaves Zac in charge of Rob’s list… so some stuff may get a bit ignored.

This week we have new PC’s, XCOM 2, maintenance, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Day of the Tentacle: Remastered, steering wheel updates, Pokémon GO and gums.

CS:GO gambling is shady. Everyone’s on the take.
