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:
Hey, Jeppy! We’re talking about Smart Ball, the 1992 SNES Action-Adventure game by Game Freak. (They called it Jerry Boy in Japan, you probably know it by that name). Not only do we talk about slime boys, we open a Christmas card in March from The Piggs! We also take a moment to cast TV dads as the Seven Deadly Sins.
Tyler armed with Vampire Killer and Dave wielding Alucard’s Spear venture forth on the most horrifying vampire hunt ever. Nah just kidding. We just talk about Castlevania: Bloodlines, the 1994 action platformer for the Sega Genesis. It’s the only Castlevania game to appear on the Sega Genesis! Of course we also talk about Twilight and the sexiest verse to ever grace the pages of the Bible. Choco Chica also makes an apperance to administer a quiz that was written by Bovine Bear Matt Cowan.

We’ve strapped into our own personal Image Transfer Device (Computer Bed) and have converted our human minds into raw binary data in order to travel through the internet and into your ears. Yes, that can only mean one thing…we’re talking about Kabuki Quantum Fighter, the 1991 action platformer for the NES! Continue reading →
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. Continue reading →
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. Continue reading →
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. Continue reading →
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.
