Ep. 465 – Castlevania: Bloodlines

Castlevania: Bloodlines

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.

Ep. 464 – Kabuki Quantum Fighter

Kabuki Quantum Fighter

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!

Ep. 462 – Home Alone for the SNES

Home Alone for the SNES

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.

Ep. 461 – Paperboy

Paperboy

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.

Ep. 458 – Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

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.

Ep. 457 – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (NES)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles NES

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.

Ep. 451 – The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda

Welp. We did it. We’ve reached the end of another list. We’ve already done an episode on Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, so this episode concludes our NES Classic series. And it is a loooong episode! Josh (of Uniracers fame) and Brandon (of being Tyler’s childhood friend fame) join us to talk about this Nintendo classic: The Legend of Zelda. There’s some game talk. But there’s also a church basement story. Tyler gets pretty drunk and we open a package from Edge Lord Kyle.

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
