Hello Internet, and welcome to the backdoor pilot for “Borg Are Fortnite”, a Star Trek podcast hosted by Captain Gun Nerd Jon and Wizened Sage Ian. (And you thought we were going to talk about Star Trek: Deep Space Nine – Crossroads of Time for the SNES). Okay, we do talk about the cinematic platformer a little bit, but we mainly talk about Deep Space Nine and Star Trek in general. As if that’s not enough, we also open a package from Mastermold Mike, read a postcard from Matt, and take a quiz from Ross Rachel Green.
Captain Gun Nerd Jon and Wizened Sage Ian join us this week to talk about Road Riot 4WD for the SNES. This game is short and terrible…so there’s not an overwhelming amount of game talk. (If we’re being honest here, we probably discuss Gran Turismo 3 more than Road Riot 4WD). But! We’ve got another episode of SODA JERKS (the only podcast within a podcast) on this episode! We also eat some sour candy that was sent in by Mastermold Mike. We take a quiz courtesy of Ross Rachel Green, and there’s plenty of Marvel and Doctor Who talk.
It’s our first episode in TADPOG Hexagon! We’re (kinda) talking about Pro Sport Hockey for the SNES, the 1993 hockey game developed by Tose and published by Jaleco. Captain Gun Nerd Jon and Wizened Sage Ian join us and help us take this episode deep into “Oops! All Intro Stories” territory. There’s more Green Ranger talk that carries over from last episode, a little MCU talk, and Jon finds out that he’s not Irish. So many tangents you’ll think you’re in Geometry class.
Oh boy. Wizened Sage Ian joins us to talk about the fourth game on the NES Classic Edition: Donkey Kong Jr. In addition to Donkey Kong Jr., we talk about roller coasters, Amiibo Law, Linksters, and Tyler issues an “Equine or Monkey” Quiz. Continue reading →
We’re celebrating our 400th podcast episode this week by talking about Manhunt (kind of), the stealth-based survival horror PlayStation 2 game by Rockstar Games. Stand-up comedian Jorge Machean and Wizened Sage Ian join us to help talk about New Zealand’s favorite game. We do a lot of other stuff too! We open a package from Kana Ha, we try cursed Nutela, Dave administers a hunt-themed quiz, we talk about television and we just end up talking about murder a lot. Continue reading →
We’re joined by TADPOG Sweetheart Josh and Wizened Sage Ian to talk about Ultima Online, the 1997 MMO by Origin Systems. Things get hot and sweaty as we try a bunch of hot sauces sent to us by Faceful of Alien Wing Wong. Burger Bottom Jon gets a new title (sorry Jon). Dave becomes intoxicated by memories of virtual murder. Who knew four sweaty adult men crammed into a blanket fort could have this much fun? Continue reading →
JRPG or GTFO, you know how we roll. Wizened Sage Ian joins us for a special TODPOG episode where Tyler tells us about Persona 3 for the PlayStation 2 and PSP. Some talk spills over to conversation about the Shin Megami Tensei series as a whole. Lots of other great stuff happens in this episode: Tyroni Baloney debuts and tells us a cat story, the phrase “Suck him dry!” is thrown around a lot, an Illuminati plot is revealed(!), and we talk about the upcoming Fantasy World Patreon bonus episode.

We got the band back together for a 2016 Year In Review! We’ve got Jacob York (of wolf fighting fame), we’ve got Wizened Sage Ian “the hottest girl in the Annex” Chandler, and we’ve got Burger Bottom Jon Turley. Despite bragging about providing Jacob with his own microphone…he still sounds off-mic (not sure why!). So it’s a tradition now, we guess! We pore over some tasty data and talk about what happened in TADPOG Nation during the dumpster fire that was 2016. There’s a lot of Rogue One talk. A lot. There are barking dogs. And we read the best listener postcard we’ve yet to receive! Continue reading →
