Ep. 450 – A Boy and His Blob

A Boy and His Blob

We don’t talk about this a lot because of the stigma that surrounds blob ownership…but we have a blob in the studio. It’s true. A couple of months ago we scraped together enough money from Patreon (thank you donors) to order our very own blob. Once a week we feed our blob a sriracha-flavored jelly bean, and he transforms into a pair of microphones and then we say dirty words into him. On a completely unrelated side-note: on this week’s episode we’re talking about David Crane’s A Boy and His Blob: Trouble in Blobolonia for the NES. We take a Which Jelly Bean Are You personality quiz? Tyler issues a jelly trivia quiz. We take a voicemail from longtime listener Fred.

Ep. 449 – Tecmo Bowl

Tecmo Bowl

Are you ready for some foooootball? We are!…or not? Either way, we strap on our helmets for this episode and talk about Tecmo Bowl for the NES. If you’re a longtime listener of our podcast, you know that sports games aren’t really our strong suit. That’s okay. We’re calling an audible (that’s a football thing, right?) and we’re bringing Time Lord Josh Edwards onto the field to lend us his gridiron know-how. Tyler issues a sports pop quiz, and we take a voicemail from Edge Lord Kyle about his personal experience with the game. Continue reading

Ep. 448 – Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

Super Mario Land 2

What do we do on this episode? Tyler’s Adventure in Dream Land ends with the most special chicken, Dave gets a Steam Link, Tyler plays a mobile game and goes to Graceland and we both dive into Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins for the Game Boy.  Continue reading

Ep. 447 – Mario’s Time Machine

Mario's Time Machine

Hot off the heels (hot on the heels?…whichever) of Mario Is Missing! We’re talking about the next Radical Entertainment and The Software Toolworks jam: Mario’s Time Machine. Ah, Mario’s Time Machine. It most certainly is a game. Thanks to Mastermold Mike Lanham for a surprise gift. DAVE WORD SLAMS HIS BOSS! We discuss the kind of person who works out in jeans, we talk about fake breasts, we recall what it was like to make our moms cry for the first time, and we pitch the Summer 2018 NES Classic. Tyler didn’t make any notes for this episode, so you know how good this one is going to be.  Continue reading

Ep. 446 – Mario Is Missing!

Mario Is Missing

It’s time to tune your Radical Datafax to TADPOG for a conversation on Mario Is Missing! You have something hard to drink, right? It may be needed to get through this game but maybe not through this episode. We talk condiments from across the pond (courtesy of Ross Rachel Green), Rap Snacks, there’s a hobo update, and a deep dive into Multiplicity. Collect three artifacts and summon whatever second rate Yoshi you can from Antarctica and our episode on Mario Is Missing!  Continue reading

Ep. 445 – Super C

Super C

This week we’re talking about Super C for the NES. Hey! Super C is a Contra game. Did you know that? We might not have. Anyway, it’s on the NES Classic so we’re talking about it. We eat chocolate from Ross Rachel Green in England or Great Britain or the UK, or wherever he is hiding. Tyler issues a quiz. Don’t worry, there is a deaf hobo update.  Continue reading

Ep. 444 – StarTropics

StarTropics

Start ropics? Startropical Capricorn? STARTROPICS! That’s what we are doing for this week’s rundown of the games on the NES Classic, as brought to you by Mastermold Mike. Are you super thirsty for all that StarTropic goodness? Well, don’t be. It is a very long walk through hobos asking for money and Brandon of Axelay fame calling you a skank before we get there. Really, we do talk about the game but not for about 40 minutes. So don’t say we didn’t warn you, but it’s totally worth it to take that journey with us.  Continue reading

Louisville Arcade Expo 2018

We are joined by Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins and Time Lord Josh Edwards to talk about TADPOG Nation’s expedition to Louisville Arcade Expo 2018 (aka TADPOG Prom). We open listener mail that was personally delivered to us at Prom, we talk about Jager Lunch, video game tournaments, go karts and angry hotel neighbors.  Continue reading
