Ep. 462 – Home Alone for the SNES

Home Alone for the SNES

It’s Christmas in July here at TADPOG Blanket Fort, and that can only mean one thing…we’re talking about Christmas Daze for the Super Nintendo! No no no, we’ve already done that…we’re talking about Home Alone for the SNES by request of Bovine Bear Matt Cowan. We do talk about the action platformer by Imagineering, but we also take a Macaulay Culkin movie quiz, and listen to a few voicemails.

Ep. 461 – Paperboy

Paperboy

This week we’re hopping on our bikes, pedaling down Easy Street, and unleashing some good old-fashioned wanton destruction. That’s right! We’re talking about Paperboy for the NES. A wild Randy Holland (of being Tyler’s dad fame) appears! Yes, Randy makes a surprise appearance and joins us as we take a wildly “dad inappropriate” quiz from listener Ross Rachel Green. We show off our brand new bumper that we don’t know how to use, courtesy of Duke Sithtoast. Finally, we wrap things up by playing some listener voicemail.

Ep. 460 – Kung Fu

Kung Fu

This week we scale five floors of the Devil’s Temple and punch our way through hoards of vest-wearing minions in order to talk about Kung Fu, the 1984 side-scrolling beat ’em up for the NES. We also talk about Tyler’s birthday, Jerry Stiller (of course), marriage, and bidets. We open a package from Sandwich Pope Phil and we play a few listener voicemails.

Ep. 458 – Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

You like that sweet Gothic Action Platformer talk that we do oh-so often when we talk about Castlevania? We have more when we discuss the new retro style offering, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. But of course we also have to talk about The Hardy Boys and how Frank and Joe Hardy should influence “classic TADPOG” episode art. Did someone say Frasier Call of Cthulhu? Of course we cover that. We open a package from Mastermold Mike, Tyler issues a Spin-Off quiz, and we wrap it all up with a dramatic reading.

Ep. 457 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NES

We plunge into the murky poo-poo water beneath the Big Apple long enough to talk about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES. Yes, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles—freaks on fire, April showing her support, electric seaweed! We open a package from Listener Sean. Yes, we make TMNT parallels to Frasier as well as Friends.

Ep. 456 – Final Fantasy XI (Part 2)

Final Fantasy XI

You know we had to do an Electric Boogaloo for FFXI! So Miller is back with for more Final Fantasy XI talk. Dave’s Old Wendy’s Nemesis rears his head once again.  Tyler returns from Disney World having learned more of life’s lessons. Drew from For the Love of Indie gives us a very nice package. Incredibly Tough Trousers Monster (It’ll make sense after you listen). If you liked the break down from last episode of FFXI, then you’ll definitely enjoy us finishing up this two part episode.

Ep. 455 – Final Fantasy XI

Final Fantasy XI

Put your party flag up because this week we are talking about Final Fantasy XI, the 2002 MMORPG by Square. We have wanted to do an episode on this game for a long time and we are joined by our resident MMOlogist, Shawn Miller of #MoreMiller fame. All three of us played Final Fantasy XI at its height and in this episode we barely scratch the surface of this immense game, but we do have a lot of fun reminiscing about our time spent in Vana’diel. We open a new package full of treats from listeners Bunny and Kira. We tell stories about our gross early apartments. Dave contributes to the stray cat population epidemic. And perhaps most notable for TADPOG Lore Masters, He Who Shall Not Be Named…is named. We had so much fun recording this one that we would like to continue it some day; we hope you enjoy.
