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.
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. Continue reading →
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 →
TADPOG Sweetheart Josh Nance (resident Metroid lover) joins us to talk about Metroid for the NES on this week’s episode. We open a package from Kira and Bunny. There is a “Sounds Like Oid” Quiz. Continue reading →
What a horrible night to have a curse! Our quest to play and discuss all of the games on the NES Classic Edition continues on this episode where we talk about Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest. We also talk about spoopy cereal, procedural television, and it is revealed that Tyler was not eaten by a crocodile contrary to popular belief. There is also a “Rib, Heart, Eye, Nail, or Ring Quiz”. Continue reading →
We’re talking about the rogue-like adventure game Reigns, for Steam, iOS and Android. Dave’s back from Dragoncon, so there’s some discussion about board games, card games and Japanese arcade games. There might also be a teeny-tiny amount of Pokémon Go talk. We read a few texts from listeners; we create a new NBC sitcom entitled “Floor To Man”; we list a few of our favorite subreddits.
We’re talking about (spoiler free!) To the Moon, the 2011 adventure, role-playing game by Freebird Games. We get serious and talk about how we think video games tell stories uniquely only to turn around and set a whole bunch of Patreon goals involving penguins, waifu body pillows and fun with jars! It’s a weird one.
As we continue our play through of Digital Trend’s Best Sega Genesis games, we come to the 23rd game on the list — Ecco the Dolphin. Did you know this game was inspired by LSD? Yeah, it totally was! In addition to talking about the game: Dave shares embarrassing dolphin stories from his youth, we learn about true dolphin lovers, and in a massively controversial move…shun the last two Matrix movies (audible gasp)!
