I know we ask you so much every week but we have been so so so good this week and we promise to keep being so good if you would do me this one favor. When we record it’s going to be Dave’s birthday. He is just the best spicy boi and deserves so much on his special 38th birthday. He really loves Pac-Man! So if you could please give us a Pac-Man game that is not a reskin of another game, we would love it so much! Could it not have horrible music? And if the story made sense, we would be good for the whole rest of the year! If we got all that we would try some spicy seafood snacks, take a quiz, and get so Baja Blasted!
-Praying on the Monkey’s Paw, Tyler “Dry Tubs” Holland.
Have you ever looked at Link, Hero of Time, and thought “Damn, I wish that were Uncle Fester.” Well, you can have that sort of wish in Addams Family Values! We get Baja Blasted and talk about the movies, what we got up to during the week and take a very creative quiz from Ball Bro Ross Rachel Green. ALL HAIL THE RANDOMIZER FOR THE SPOOKY OCTOBER GIFT OF ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES! Maybe we will get lucky and get one of the other Addams Family games this month.
Out of 100 people surveyed, the top one answer is on the board: name a Super Nintendo game which features two families competing to name the most popular responses to survey questions in order to win cash and prizes. Show me…Family Feud for the Super Nintendo! Number one answer! That’s a long way of saying we’re talking about Family Feud, the 1993 Super Nintendo adaptation of the game show by Imagineering. We’re recording in a new studio space for this episode, so there’s a little bit of talk about that. We try snacks that Tyler’s Boss and Boss-in-law brought back from Greece. Naturally, we draw parallels to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and our favorite Family Feud hosts. There’s a lot going on here, I guess is what we’re trying to say. We hope you enjoy!
We dared to walk into the darkness. We gathered our courage and took step after step into the inky blackness. We journeyed deeper than all others who came before us. We could see no light, we could see no end and we could see no beginning. It was there, in the absolute darkness, that we held our breath and whispered, “Show us the way. No whammies. No whammies. No whammies. Stop.” After an infinity in our minds that silence was broken; the darkness whispered back, “Mickey Mouse’s Ultimate Challenge.” TODAY, we cover Mickey’s Ultimate Challenge and bring back our dearly beloved Oathbreaker Blake Woods. We talk about World of Warcraft, a little Kim Kardashian, and then take some calls. We also give you the whole spectrum of adventure in this itty bitty game. Enjoy!
Vegas, baby! We’re talking about Vegas Stakes for the SNES. Who knows the American practice of Las Vegas style gambling and living? YOU KNOW IT’S ROSS RACHEL GREEN! We come in hot with stories about the Brain Surgery Bros, some more potential testicle surgeries, what Dave plans to do to make side money in his retirement, a story about a secret so deep that it took hypnotism to draw it out and just so so so many Albert Fish tangents. So if you like British intrigue, trusting strangers, and cannibalistic sadistic/masochistic serial killers – we just have the perfect SNES Vegas Stakes podcast episode for you!
Okay! Maybe you were expecting to hear an episode on Vegas Stakes for the Super Nintendo. That’s a legitimate expectation because on our last episode we stated that we would in-fact be covering Vegas Stakes. Welp. Due to some serious circumstances we were not able to make that happen, but we will get to it…eventually. In the meantime, please enjoy this Patreon bonus episode on Super Mario Odyssey that we released last year.
WARNING: This episode starts out with some siiiiick references to the following TV shows: Friends, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, and The Office. We also talk about Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch by request of Tyler (of TADPOG fame). We end up talking about Mario in a broader sense and talk generally about 3D platformers as a genre. We end by playing some listener voicemail. (Also, Tyler announces his new career as a Super Punch-Out!! speed runner.)
From the numerical ether, our withering god of randomness doth bequeath this game – King of the Monsters 2! So, it’s a game. We played it. We beat it. We talk about it. A little dash of DragonCon, a pinch of a package from Chris Murray, and gallon of 1 call full of Harrison Ford accusations from Terrified Michelle! So please come eat this monster of a TADPOG cake with us. The cake is also decorated with Minions per the request of a TADPOG Sweetheart, Nicole.
Salutations, honored TADPOG listener! Have you heard the good word of the Randomizer? In it’s limited and ever shrinking divinity but infinite wisdom it deals out both the greatest of pleasures and the most horrendous of pains! Today, fair listener, we received the the large uncomfortable end of the no-no stick this week with The Terminator. We try to make it good for you with a pretty good Kenna story, a new Back the Future timeline, some robot talk, some Wolverine talk and am amuse-bouche of Belle Delphine talk, oh, and we pitch a totally new direction for the show.
