Dattebayo! We’re taking a short break from the NES Classic games to talk about one of Dave’s favorite games. Captain Gun Nerd Jon Turley joins us to talk about Naruto: Gekito Ninja Taisen! 4 (aka Naruto Gecko Ninja Mike Tyson), the 2005 GameCube fighting game by Tomy. In addition to talking about the game: we talk about the Naruto anime, we all decide which sitcom couple best parallels our individual relationships with our significant others, and we talk about Star Trek quite a bit. There is a super difficult Naruto quiz! Continue reading →
Burger Bottom Jon Turley returns (Jon, we’re gonna work on a new title for you, buddy)! And he’s here to play Audience Surrogate while we tell stories from the Louisville Arcade Expo (aka TADPOG Prom). There are tales from the go kart track! There are drunken tales of debauchery brought to you by Jägermeister! There’s a story about a field trip to the Pussycat Lounge! There’s even a little talk about the expo too! Continue reading →
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 →
Here it is. The newest All Calls episode. A lot of good stuff happens on this one. We (two people who don’t know much about Prince) open a package from Chairman Jordan Meow. We both drink Colt 45 for the first time but it’s for a good reason: we create a drink called “Trash Monkey” which we heard about on another podcast (My Brother My Brother and Me). We take a LIVE call from Burger Bottom Jon Turley. We talk about the girls we’ve kissed. The Harrison Ford Debate rages on! And of course…we answer some text messages and voicemails.
This is where Jon Turley helps us bring TADPOG from yeah to yes. We kind of talk about Darkwing Duck for the NES. What we really do is argue about Harrison Ford, Dave brings shame to his family by catastrophically failing a quiz about CAPCOM, and Tyler filibusters Jon.
The Eventually List continues on, TADPOG Nation. This week we hit one of the first games that was requested of us with Mark of the Ninja. There is Ninja talk in here, we promise. but we also promise plenty of entertaining tangents and a surprise guest appearance by Jon Turley. Enjoy some stories about your favorite Food Network star, Annie Potts and some Golden Girl questions.
This is it, TADPOG Nation. The end. We have reached the final game on IGN’s Top 100 SNES games. It has taken a little over two years but now we get to the #1 game, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. We bring on resident Zelda expert, TADPOG’s Sweetheart Josh Nance of Uniracers fame and because we love him and he can be here, Jon Turley of NBA James fame. Meg Holland even makes a brief appearance for intro stories. We talk about coed sleep overs, our parents’ relationship rules and even some Zelda. Its been a long road but we’re very happy you’re here with us, TADPOG Nation.
