Here it is: our final episode on Konami’s Suikoden. Do we gush about our favorite moments? Yup. But we also quote Sun Tzu and talk about Tyler’s “Trash Room” from his college days. We wrap things up by taking a Pseudo quiz sent to us by Quiz Master Bovine Bear.
Oh man, where to start on this one. We talk Suikoden (or Suidoken) with half of TADPOG Sweethearts Josh Nance but we also talk about the origins of JOSHFORT Castle, Cuck E. Cheese’s, The New Waterfowl Pantheon, and plenty of D&D references. Maybe this one could be called “classic” TADPOG. We hope you enjoy.
Fresh off the the heels of the Louisville Arcade Expo, we are discussing Suikoden. Soo-ee-ko-dan?? But really, this game has been on our to-do list since the beginning of the podcast. So…you might want to actually get ready for some game talk. The love had been edging for years and finally gets to erupt forth. We also open a hand-delivered package from First Time Caller Nate Glines, we rank french fries, and we wrap things up by listening to voicemail.
Did you really love last week’s episode of Symphony of the Night? No? TOOOOOO BAD! We are back with more talk over the game. You know we just had to bring back half of TADPOG’s Sweethearts, Josh Nance. We also brought on an entirely new guest host that has been mentioned many time – Kyle Collins of The Experience Grind Podcast! We talk about the game but also dote plenty of butts, teeth, Cooter Belmont and graboids from the Tremors franchise. Continue reading →
On this episode we further our quest to play and discuss every Castlevania game, and this one is a big one. Foretold years ago by the Necromancer Shaft, TADPOG would do at least two episodes of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Many heroes stepped up to go on this journey and those chosen today are one-half of TADPOG’s Sweethearts Josh Nance and Ruby on Rails Baron Paul Clewell. We have chosen our healing potions in the form of stout beer from Kevin Link. We sharpen our blades and manage to keep on track so we can give this game its due, and we also create the hero we all deserve. Cooter Belmont. Continue reading →
This week we’re talking about Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (or as it’s know in Japan, Akumajou Dracula X: Chi no Rondo), the 1993 platforming-adventure game for the NEC PC Engine CD. We take a Halloween quiz that was sent in by Quizmaster Bovine Bear Matt Cowan. We answer a few voicemails. Do you like talk about kids and Halloween costumes? What about when we eat incredibly spicy things? THIS EPISODE HAS SOME OF THAT! Continue reading →
So today we talk about that super popular and beloved game, Castlevania: Dracula X! What? You don’t know what this is? It’s not so beloved? Well, we still have first-time guest host Blumpkin Bear Sean Berry on to tell us about his penis travesty alongside some Dracula X commentary. Meanwhile, Tyler goes to the pharmacy and Dave goes to the Fall Festival. Also, homeless people talk. So check out some stories and a deep dive into the shallow pool that is Dracula X.

We strap on our homemade jet packs and join Sparkster to crush the swine army in Konami’s Rocket Knight Adventures, the 1993 platformer and scrolling shooter for the Sega Genesis. Tyler has the B-A-L-L-S to share an Epic Dollar General story, and we take a Rocket Knight Adventures themed quiz from Bovine Bear Quiz Master Matt Cowan. Continue reading →
