We know everyone LOVES it when we cover sports games, so courtesy of the our new TADPOG god, “The Randomizer”, we bring you a sports game every bit as good as we are – Roger Clemens’ MVP Baseball! We have to bring back Chris Black to fill in all the gaps. Tyler tells his story, “A Tale of Two Beggars” and Chris eats some 30 year old gum.
And on that day, Tyler and Dave began their long journey through the entire remainder of the SNES Library. How many companions would they discover along the way? How many forgotten treasures? How many tangents about their junk would lead them astray? Only time will tell. Join them today on the journey of 714 steps with The 7th Saga. But only if you have the strength of Ron Perlman, the dexterity of Ron Perlman, and the broadness of chin of, well, Ron Perlman.
Hey! Listen! It’s (basically) episode #500! So we chose a big hit of nostalgia in the form of Final Fight 2: Electric Boogaloo. You know we have to bring a little Bailey Jay, a little cringe, a little weird sex story, and lots and lots of Mike Haggar.
Andross is back! And we’re talking about Star Fox 2 (or as it’s known colloquially: Space Vulpine Jr.)! Do you want dry game talk exploring the development, cancellation and resurrection of Star Fox 2? We got that. There’s also a lengthy segment, courtesy of Executive Bruiser Janie and Terrified Michelle, where we crunch down on some Mexican snacks directly into the mics (now *that’s* what I call podcasting!). We wrap things up with a Fox Quiz from Quizmaster Bovine Bear Matt, we call Jacob (of wolf-fighting fame), and we answer a few listener voicemails.
With more cloaks and chains than a cultish orgy, we take a bribe and play Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, the 1995 action/beat ’em up for the Super Nintendo. Thanks Mysterious iTunes Donor- Tim I. Tunes who totally didn’t bribe us to produce an episode on this game, we dove full tilt into the 90s fest that is this game. We have plenty of deep religious discussion, sexual merchandise, and well researched John Leguizamo trivia.
Todd McFarlane’s Spawn: The Video Game Podcast Shownotes:
Here it is: our final episode on Konami’s Suikoden. Do we gush about our favorite moments? Yup. But we also quote Sun Tzu and talk about Tyler’s “Trash Room” from his college days. We wrap things up by taking a Pseudo quiz sent to us by Quiz Master Bovine Bear.
Oh man, where to start on this one. We talk Suikoden (or Suidoken) with half of TADPOG Sweethearts Josh Nance but we also talk about the origins of JOSHFORT Castle, Cuck E. Cheese’s, The New Waterfowl Pantheon, and plenty of D&D references. Maybe this one could be called “classic” TADPOG. We hope you enjoy.
Fresh off the the heels of the Louisville Arcade Expo, we are discussing Suikoden. Soo-ee-ko-dan?? But really, this game has been on our to-do list since the beginning of the podcast. So…you might want to actually get ready for some game talk. The love had been edging for years and finally gets to erupt forth. We also open a hand-delivered package from First Time Caller Nate Glines, we rank french fries, and we wrap things up by listening to voicemail.
