This week we’re firing up the Vic Viper’s engines and talking about Gradius for the NES. We assure you that there is game talk but we also take some time to open an incredible package from Terrified Michelle. There’s grousing about office Christmas parties. There are spoiler-free opinions on The Last Jedi. We come up with concepts for new t-shirts. And there is a Starship quiz.
We take up arms and storm Dracula’s tower on this episode of the podcast where we try to deliver just the wettest Castlevania III conversation that you can imagine. When we’re not talking about whips, stairs and monsters, we’re talking about making friends, inappropriate Facebook posts, and we open a listener package from Executive Producer Janie. There’s a Curse Quiz and we answer some listener voice mail.
Rhythm Master Paul “Walking Simpsons Encyclopedia” Corn and Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress join us to talk about The Simpsons Arcade game by Konami. We kinda talk about the game but we mainly talk about The Simpsons in general…and gooders.
Hello Internet and WELCOME TO DIE! That’s right, true believers, we’re talking about the epic 6-Player arcade brawler: X-Men by Konami. If you’ve come looking for a bunch of inaccurate statements about your favorite mutants, look no further, we’ve got that in spades. We also open a package from Ruby Baron Paul Clewell. Chicken tendies are involved.
Sometimes we play video games. Other times we just sit around with Jon Turley and talk about vampires. Today we do both. We’re talking about IGN’s 21st ranked Super Nintendo game, Super Castlevania IV by Konami. Uh, we actually do talk a lot about the game today…which is kinda weird. So, I hope you’re into that kind of stuff. Even if you’re not, listen anyway, Jon says “sinphany” instead of “symphony” at least twice. It’s great.
Sometimes aliens just won’t respect a well written treaty. It’s times like those that you need a gun, a bro and a malfunctioning helicopter. It’s wartime. It’s Alien Wartime. McElwain (of Mega Man X2 fame) and Jon Turley (of NBA James fame) are our guesthosts. Which one is Jimbo? Which one is Sully? All will be revealed in 2636. Until then, enjoy this episode of TADPOG, where we talk about Contra III: The Alien Wars for the Super Nintendo.
On this Other Shit Monday episode, we get rambunctious with Virginity Thief Taryn (of Jaws fame). You’re probably worried that this episode doesn’t contain copious amounts of Dave Matthews and Friends references. Don’t worry. There’s more David the Gnome talk too and lots of personal sexual revelations! We also talk about the game a little.
It’s an even more special episode of TADPOG SIDEPOG today. After around 60 weeks of waiting we’re teaming up with The Second Breakfast Podcast for another crossover. This time they picked the movie and the game. They get to watch The Goonies and we had to play The Goonies II for the NES. Other than the movie and this totally appropriate and probably canonical game, we talk about other games we’ve been playing, how to impress all the cool kids at Church Camp, how to get your own free company and just how good Weird Al really is for music.
Wednesday. Celebrate it with TADPOG’s Original Flavor Wednesday where this week we’re breaking down IGN’s #39th ranked game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time (really we break down a lot of things concerning the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). We talk about the SNES game, the arcade game, the cartoon, the action figures, the obscure and strange characters and just to round it out Kareem Abdul Jabbar, porcelain figurines and where Daredevil fits into all this.
On this episode of TADPOG Original Flavor Wednesday, we get our wading boots on and march through IGN’s #45 ranked SNES game, Gradius III. Expect yelling, cursing, laughing about the yelling and cursing and a special quiz.
