Do you LOVE Conan the Barbarian? Do you love him so much you’ll consume anything vaguely resembling him, including media that stole his imagine just to capitalize on his popularity? Do you LOVE poorly designed fighting games released far after any time that it could have been relevant? No? Good, because no one does. But theoretically if such an audience existed then WE TOTALLY HAVE A GAME FOR YOU! BATTLE BLAZE! Don’t worry – not only do we do a deep dive into this ridiculousness, we also discuss odd fetishes and Richard Dawson. So come on down and enjoy our misery.
By the grace of The Randomizer, welcome to our Art of Fighting episode where we talk about parenting a lot. But not just parenting, we recast Sex and the City with Street Fighter characters (it’s pretty perfect, don’t worry.). A defense is made for Monster energy drink and to better protect our Kyles. Have you wanted to hear an official prayer to The Randomizer? Good, we have one for review. Also, we debate whether or not Tyler should send pictures of his vasectomy, by request, to the sweetest fan from the Isle of Man.
Happy (day after) New Year! Now that we have severely dated yet another episode—Chocto (you know him from YouTube) joins us on this one to talk about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch. Yes, we realize this game is less than a month old. It hardly qualifies as an “old game” but we do our best to shoehorn retro gaming references in (okay, maybe not our best). We focus on the Adventure Mode a lot but we also talk about the game in a broader sense, and we end up talking about previous Smash Bros. games as well. Of course we talk about our mains and speculate on DLC fighters. During the middle of the show a strange package from Link makes an appearance. We wrap things up by tackling a Smash Quiz that was sent in by Quiz Master Bovine Bear Matt.
Now let’s come out boxing! So far we’ve been playing through the NES Classic games alphabetically, but for this episode we’re switching up the order for a special reason. Drew Rowland (long-time listener, fellow podcaster and friend of the show) is tying the knot with Bailey (of Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker fame) this week! Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! is one of Drew’s favorite games of all time, so we’ve decided to talk about it and it’s rerelease, Punch-Out!! (with Mr. Dream), in honor of the upcoming nuptials. Um, we also explore some dark places on this episode…so enjoy that! And don’t forget to join the Nintendo Fan Club today! Continue reading →
We’re back on the Digital Trends list this week—which can only mean one thing—it’s time for Super Street Fighter II for the Sega Genesis. We talk about the game for a bit, but more importantly, we try a Marmite grilled cheese sandwich. We also open a listener package, pee in Swift the fox’s mouth, and brainstorm some charity stream ideas. Continue reading →
Now its official, TADPOG Nation, we have started our next list to play through for Original Flavor Wednesdays — Dorkly’s Top 25 N64 Games. We thought long and hard and we think you’ll be pleased with the list…but maybe not this game (Mortal Kombat Trilogy) or the episode? Who likes to start with a bang anyway.
The Eventually List continues, TADPOG Nation. This week we break down our first Playstation game with the 1997 Squaresoft weapon based fighting game, Bushido Blade. We talk about swords both real and digital as well as what men appear to be truly obsessed with in life. We also talk a lot about Bushido Blade and its…many…qualities.
TADPOG Nation, we feel this is a pretty good day for us here as we reach IGN’s #5 ranked game, Street Fighter II Turbo. Spoilers, this is a game we all love quite a bit so it’ll be a positivity fest if you’re into that. Don’t worry, there is plenty of talk of blood, gore, illness and injury as well as the celebration of the birth of Henry David Moore.
