Ep. 389 – Persona 3

Persona 3

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.

If that’s not enough to entice you to hit the play button: We sip on Ecto Cooler Iced Tea and talk about circumcision (of the male and female variety!); Dave reveals his suicide notebook; Tyler and Josh talk about the LEGO universe they created; and we read a listener postcard from California.  Continue reading

But wait, there’s more! We open a huge package from Ruby Baron Paul Clewell, and Dave’s dad calls in to tell us everything he knows about Phantasy Star IV. We take some calls, and (of course) we invent Borat Chess.  Continue reading

TADPOG Nation! Today is not Josh Nance’s birthday but when we recorded it was so its a special combination of Original Flavor Wednesday and Josh’s Birthday. It was a pretty perfect occasion to conclude the 2nd part of our conversation about IGN’s 10th ranked game, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Well, we have every intention of discussing more of Mario RPG but we end up spending a lot of time on an extra special Facebook quiz. So there is that. And plenty of banter between Josh and Nicole Nance. We hope you like 60% Quiz and 40% game talk.

Super Mario RPG Title Screen

TADPOG NATION! THE TIME HAS COME! WE HAVE NO ARRIVED AT THE TOP TEN OF IGN’S TOP ONE HUNDRED SUPER NINTENDO GAMES. But don’t worry, we’re going to do what Hollywood does now and really stretch out all these big RPGs that are this high on the list (mostly so we can finish replaying them or just flat out play them). This week we tackle Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. We have people that like it, people that love it and maybe someone who downright hates it. Please enjoy.

We continue our conversation about the 1993 Square classic, Secret of Mana. Has Tyler changed his mind about the game? Does Dave remember anything that he says on the podcast? Which cereal had the creepiest box when we were kids? What social status can be found in homemade confections? Have faith, TADPOG Nation, all will be answered in this episode.
