Ep. 484 – Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse

Castle of Illusion

OH MAN! ARE YOU GUYS READY TO GET TOTALLY BUCK WILD THIS WEEK?! You know we bring it heavy with Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (and a surprising amount of game talk). Castle of Illusion is the current game of the month over on the Retro Gaming Monthly Facebook group, and we regularly talk about their monthly selections. We figured it was the perfect time to invite Steven Michael (the creator of the RGM group and Nerdy Thursday Super Fan) on to the show to dish about the game with us. Enjoy!

Symphony of the Night

Did you really love last week’s episode of Symphony of the Night? No? TOOOOOO BAD! We are back with more talk over the game. You know we just had to bring back half of TADPOG’s Sweethearts, Josh Nance. We also brought on an entirely new guest host that has been mentioned many time – Kyle Collins of The Experience Grind Podcast!

Ep. 482 – Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Part 1)

Symphony of the Night

On this episode we further our quest to play and discuss every Castlevania game, and this one is a big one. Foretold years ago by the Necromancer Shaft, TADPOG would do at least two episodes of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Many heroes stepped up to go on this journey and those chosen today are one-half of TADPOG’s Sweethearts Josh Nance and Ruby on Rails Baron Paul Clewell. We have chosen our healing potions in the form of stout beer from Kevin Link. We sharpen our blades and manage to keep on track so we can give this game its due, and we also create the hero we all deserve. Cooter Belmont. Continue reading

Ep. 481 – Cuphead

Cuphead

Hot dawg! We figured that this was a good week for a swell podcast about Cuphead, the run-and-gunner by StudioMDHR. While this game may have released in 2017, it is undeniably retro-inspired. We talk about the game but we also talk about cartoons in general, and  we take a Boss Rush quiz which was submitted by Quizmaster Matt. As if that’s not enough, we are joined by Coco (aka CocoConfession on Twitch) to help us talk about the finer points of the game!

Fallout 4 DLC

Did you not get enough of our popular Fallout 4 episodes that eventually people started to complain about since there were so many? You’re in luck! We do a TODPOG episode over every little bit of the Fallout 4 DLC. Just to make sure we cover everything we bring on Drinksmith Joey Webster and Ross Rachel-Green of the Nothing to Play podcast. We eat some weird and spicy foods courtesy of Kevin Link of Super Bomberman 2 fame. Ross tells a very British bathroom story. Joey celebrates his TADPOGiversary. We actually talk DLC, take a quiz and give some beards and glasses. If you’re ready to round out your TADPOG Fallout 4 experience then this one is for you!

ENJOY!

This week we’re talking about Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (or as it’s know in Japan, Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo), the 1993 platforming-adventure game for the NEC PC Engine CD. We take a Halloween quiz that was sent in by Quizmaster Bovine Bear Matt Cowan. We answer a few voicemails. Do you like talk about kids and Halloween costumes? What about when we eat incredibly spicy things? THIS EPISODE HAS SOME OF THAT!
