Sometimes we play video games. Other times we just sit around with Jon Turley and talk about vampires. Today we do both. We’re talking about IGN’s 21st ranked Super Nintendo game, Super Castlevania IV by Konami. Uh, we actually do talk a lot about the game today…which is kinda weird. So, I hope you’re into that kind of stuff. Even if you’re not, listen anyway, Jon says “sinphany” instead of “symphony” at least twice. It’s great.
You like NES games, TADPOG Nation? We do too. So Monday is the perfect place to take a slight dip into the NES library. Today we’re talking (a little) about the NES adventure game, Rygar. Shawn Miller, of audio cursing fame, has been asking us to do this game for awhile and have him on for it. After asking around it also turns out Tyler’s boss is a big fan of the game so we had Jason Ison on the episode as well. As is appropriate with Rygar we talk A LOT about strippers and chimera. We also reveal what we are sure will become “The infamous 580 trilogy”.
It’s Wednesday TADPOG nation, so that means we return again to IGN’s Top 100 SNES games list. This week we’re at #22 with Mario Paint. Well. Its Mario Paint. Want to know what we can say about Mario Paint? We were interested too so we called in Meghan Holland of Harvest Moon fame (per the Five Star Request of fishlipsjay) and Jon Turley of NBA James fame to help us out. We talk about drawing in Mario Paint. We talk about animation in Mario Paint. We also talk about music creation and fly swatting in Mario Paint. Yep. And maybe where to pee and where not to pee and southern accents.
This is a long episode, TADPOG Nation. I’ll get that out of the way immediately. There were some strong feelings in this episode and there was much to talk about. Not just about Link’s Awakening but also ghosts, the sexual habits of plumbers and TADPOG/Cartoon parallels. But all in all, I think we’re all pretty proud of this and we really hope you like it as much as we enjoyed recording it.
This podcast was started to run down the IGN Top 100 SNES games. It has had some additions but we keep it at a hunnit on Wednesday. Wednesdays are always Original Flavor. This Wednesday we’ve made it to IGN’s #23 ranked game, The Magical Quest starring Mickey Mouse. We discuss the game but we can’t help but talk about all other things Mickey Mouse, Disney and Murphy Brown related. Meg joins us for this one as she is the veteran of Mickey Mouse themed games. The Holland baby, Kenna, may also make a few appearances. If you like Disney and joyful sounds of a baby, then we really have an episode for you.
MONDAY. TADPOG. GAMES THAT ARE NOT ON IGN’S TOP 100 SNES GAMES. This week, my favorite TADPOG Nation, we’re breaking the very broly game of Broforce. We’ll just be talking about bros. Just games and bros. You take the games, you take the bros and have good time. One of our dearest bros, Josh Nance (of Uniracer’s fame), joins us for this one. We talk about our mothers and any possible anger issues they might have, a discussion and Kickstarter and early buy in games, and even take some calls from other TADPOG bros. You might enjoy it. You might not. We hope you do, bro.
Sometimes aliens just won’t respect a well written treaty. It’s times like those that you need a gun, a bro and a malfunctioning helicopter. It’s wartime. It’s Alien Wartime. McElwain (of Mega Man X2 fame) and Jon Turley (of NBA James fame) are our guesthosts. Which one is Jimbo? Which one is Sully? All will be revealed in 2636. Until then, enjoy this episode of TADPOG, where we talk about Contra III: The Alien Wars for the Super Nintendo.
Eventually has come again, TADPOG Nation, and as always it falls on a Monday of TADPIG. We tackle a request made of Herald Arthur to play Super Smash TV for the SNES. We assume he meant SNES since that’s our wheelhouse but he might have meant the arcade. I guess its a good thing we covered that too. So we absolutely talk about Super Smash TV but we also discuss the deep values of The Running Man, the ethics of mutant testing and how to properly learn Spanish.
In This Episode:
Of never been seen by Tyler’s parents fame, Forest Gump (the scene where they left)
We’re at the last 25 games (or the Quarter Quarrel for Hunger Games fans) left on IGN’s Top 100 SNES games, TADPOG Nation. Today we reach a milestone with Mortal Kombat II. We even drag Jon Turley, of NBA James fame, into the fray despite his insistence he shouldn’t be here. We talk about out own perilous mortal combats, some great anime and a breakdown of Mortal Kombat II (and some Mortal Kombat SINCE IT IS NOT ON THE LIST). We hope you enjoy this one, TADPOG Nation.
