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.
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?
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!
Wizened Sage Ian and Untitled Ramon (of Super Bomberman 2 fame) join us to talk about Overwatch, the team-based first-person shooter by Blizzard Entertainment. There’s plenty of other stuff too! We give marriage advice, we talk about our competitive natures, we bond, we slowly but surely get drunker by the minute, and we play a game called Tyler Guesses Overwatch Characters Until We Run Out of Time.
Wizened Sage Ian Chandler joins us for our Milestone 350th Episode! We usher in our next 350 episodes by talking about the seven gods battling for supremacy of new Urth. That’s right…we’re talking about Primal Rage for the Sega Genesis. We also talk about the state of the podcast a little bit. There may or may not be a tiny Blizzard vs McFlurry debate.
Josh, Nicole, and Ian join us for the first episode with our new soundboard (thank you, Patreon Donors)! We wrap up Tyler’s Cat in the Hat Little Fears game by talking about the system in general, we go over some things that the players missed, and we get into some of the influences for the game. We also open a package from Pinball Archmage Chris Edler and we take some time to answer listener text messages.
Whaaaat? It’s another Actual Play episode? Yup! Wizened Sage Ian Chandler and Ramon Castillo (of trampoline fame) sit down with us to play the print and play version of Noisy Person Cards by Paracosm Press. Strap in, you’re about to hear all of us talk in strange and exaggerated voices, and all-around embarrass ourselves. You’re welcome!
The McBoys have all assembled right in the middle of Russellfest. We got Kenny. We got Chester. And of course we got Billie. We discuss Stargate (in all its glory) for the Super Nintendo. We open Blake’s package, enjoy a good shlorp-clack, and Kenny issues a quiz.
Wizened Wastelander Sage Ian joins us as we continue our conversation about Fallout 4. We talk about snapshot moments in the lives of Tyler’s brother and Dave’s sister, and learn a few things about Ian’s late-night viewing preferences. None of our listeners said they didn’t want to hear this, so we made it.
