Ep. 143 – Ready Player One Series: Pac-Man

Pac-Man

On this episode of TADPOG Podcast, we continue our conversation about games from the book Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Today’s game is truly a classic and very near and dear to Dave and guest-host Jason Ison (of Rygar fame). Stories are told. There’s a regretful recall, a woman with no hands and a fun thing to do with all those markers you have lying around.

Ep. 141 – Ready Player One Series: Joust

Joust

Mondays just keep coming, TADPOG Nation. We humans must struggle against the inexorable progress of time as it grinds away at out mortality BUT we’re trying to make it better by continuing with our Ready Player One Series. This week we play the arcade classic Joust. We have Nicole Nance of Kirby fame on for this one because she played it once. It totally counts. She also brings it with a very good intro story. So we discuss marital aids, Joust and take some great calls.

Ep. 140 – Final Fantasy II (Part I)

FinalFantasy2

Original Flavor Wednesday. Milestone game for the hosts. How can we talk about a game that captivated us so much growing up? We split it into two episodes. How else do we do it? We call Shawn Miller of Pilotwings fame and Josh Nance of Uniracers fame to help out. The four of us talk about the extensive preparations we’ve made for our own funerals, we wish Jacob York of Wolf Fighting fame a very special birthday and try our best to fumble through all of Final Fantasy II by memory (spoilers…fumble).

Ep. 139 – Ready Player One Series: Heavy Barrel

HeavyBarrel

It’s an even more special Monday, TADPOG Nation, as we get a new series underway. We just love Ready Player One so much and it resonated with our show so strongly that we’re going to play through the games that are often mentioned in the book. Don’t worry, its spoiler free until we’ve played through the games and then we’ll do a super spoiler heavy episode just about the book. Since she loves Wil Wheaton so much we just had to have Nikki Moore on the show for this one. She was very good at Heavy Barrel too. We talk about when boys are at their sexiest, how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would rap and a little bit about Heavy Barrel.

Ep. 138 – Tetris Attack

TetrisAttack

This week, TADPOG Nation, we break into the final 15 on IGN’s Top 100 SNES games with….Tetris Attack. Should I spoil anything for you? I dunno. This is just a blurb to be posted around the internet. Oh well, this game was weird and possibly a scam of some sort. Shame on you Nintendo. Other than trying to sort out Tetris Attack (title inappropriate) we discuss how to properly sleep grope, how to really get a buzz when you smoke a cigarette and the best place to get video game and cartoon related tattoos. Way more banter and tangents that game talk on this one, we tried. Promise.

Ep. 137 – Inca

INCA

You know how we say so often that we will get to those Five Star Review requests…eventually? Well, TADPOG Nation, eventually has come yet again and this time it will take the form of Inca per the request of A-Napps. Was he doing some masterful trolling on A-Napps part? We think quite possibly. So we give our gripping play by play of INCA as well as what happens when Randy shops for groceries as well as a plethora of calls.

Ep. 136 – Donkey Kong Country 2

DonkeyKongCountry2

Happy Wednesday TADPOG Nation. In celebration we have a gift for you. As you probably know, according to Emile Post, the tradition gift for a Wednesday is an episode of a podcast where they play through IGN’s Top 100 SNES games. This gift is IGN’s #16 ranked game Donkey Kong Country 2 – Diddy’s Kong-Quest. It could be a little special since Tyler’s dad does make a brief cameo to tell some classic dad jokes. We even make some deep and very clearly thought out comparisons to this game and United States of Tara, Resident Evil and Rocky. We also did a lot of convincing to get Jon Turley to guest host, we know everyone loves him.

Ep. 135 – Burger Time

BurgerTime

Do you like episodes where we do a lot of tangents and banter and don’t get super deep into every detail of the game? BOY DO WE HAVE AN EPISODE FOR YOU. We get wrist deep into the NES port of the classic Burger Time but in our defense that pool is really only about wrist deep.
