  • Third Times The Themisto – Salvage Saturday 7

    It’s our third and final shift on the Saucy Themisto this week on Salvage Saturday. We’ve made some good progress in the previous 2 shifts but now we are in the final stretch. Will Adam complete his work order or will it end in dismal failure at the final...
  • 20 Year Dynasty

    Koei Tecmo released a video on Monday (03/08/2020) celebrating the 20 year anniversary of the Dynasty Warriors series. A series of games I love, have played most entries in but was left bitterly disappointed by the latest game – Dynasty Warriors 9 – that was released back in 2018....
  • Still Saucy – Salvage Saturday 6

    We return to the Saucy Themisto for a second shift in this week’s Salvage Saturday. Last week we did well to peel a load of those outer hull layers off, now it is time to see if we can salvage some of the valuable stuff from inside the ship!...
  • Is New Game Plus Important?

    I rolled the credits on Ghost of Tsushima at 3am on Tuesday morning. I’m not going to talk about that experience here in this article, I’ll save it for a later one, all I’ll say is that it was brilliant and I loved playing it. In fact, I want...

With much blood, sweat, tears and swearing I have accomplished that which seemed impossible just a few months ago. I’ve achieved my greatest accomplishment in Rocket League, and in life, so far. That’s right!...
  • Yet More Fails – Salvage Saturday 4

    Last week’s Salvage Saturday posed the question “am I the worst Cutter in the world?” This week I answer that question emphatically with a short selection of fails. It isn’t easy being this bad, honest. Thanks for watching and check back next week for another Salvage Saturday video!...
  • ID: Invaded

    You awake on a bed in an unusual room. As soon as you gain consciousness you realise something is wrong. You start to fall apart. Your limbs split into a dozen pieces, your whole body splinters and you can’t even remember your own name. It’s not a dream, but...
  • Are You Going To Salvage Anything? – Salvage Saturday 3

    Welcome back to another Salvage Saturday! In this weeks video, Adam takes on his first Grade 4 Ship, a Gecko called Luminous Ganymede. You can tell straight away that this is a big step up from the Mackerel ships in the prior videos. So, the big question is… “Is...
