We’re kicking off our playthrough of the NES Classic Edition library on this episode! The first game up for discussion is…Balloon Fight! Tyler has a couple of great announcements. We define Tylerance. We talk about roommates who shave their body parts. There is a quiz!
It’s been a long time since we’ve talked about a Game Boy Color game on the podcast…some might say it’s been ages! (Pause for laughter). Anyway, we’re actually talking about two Game Boy Color games from a little-known indie series called The Legend of Zelda (you probably haven’t heard of it). Yes, that’s right. We’re talking about Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages, each developed by Flagship (Capcom) and published by Nintendo in 2001. We also open a package from Trashbear Joe Willard, a wedding invitation, and a package from Mastermold Mike. We take some voicemail, we bestow a new title and we struggle to come up with a kangaroo cereal mascot.
We’re talking about the 1998 racing game, Moto Racer 2. Just kidding! This is a very weird, very spur of the moment Pokémon Go episode brought to you by Princess Consuela Banana Hammock Taryn Landon! *Reggaeton horn!*. Complete with technical difficulties!
This is it. We’re wrapping up Dorkly’s Top 25 N64 games. Josh and Ian return to finish discussing Ocarina of Time. There’s also (finally) plenty of explicit pog talk, rants about local fast food and another letter from civil war soldier Jon Turley.
Josh and Ian join us to talk about Dorkly’s top-rated Nintendo 64 game, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Additionally there is a message from Banjo (of Banjo-Kazooie fame), Meg plays Final Fantasy VIII, and we receive a letter from our long lost Burger Bottom at Klingon Basic Training.
We’re talking about the 1999 classic, Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 64. Our resident Smashologist, Josh Nance joins us. Turns out there’s a lot of game talk on this one with liberal breaks to talk about emojis, migraines and scrotal injuries.
TADPOG’s Sweetheart, Nicole Nance and (a new challenger appears!) Ian Chandler join us to talk about Dorkly’s third-ranked N64 game, Super Mario 64. WARNING: There is a lot of game talk in this episode (like way more game talk than a regular episode of TADPOG). Is there an abundant supply of gushing praise? Or does the Cloud of Negativity plume up like the Smoke Monster on Lost?
On this episode, TADPOG’s Sweethearts, Josh and Nicole return to help us wrap up The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Dave is sick and miserable, there’s a creepypasta reading by Nicole, and TWO quizzes.
TADPOG’s Sweethearts, Josh and Nicole join us to talk about The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. Dorkly thought pretty highly of it. They ranked it as their 5th-favorite N64 game of all time. So we talk a little about that. AND because you asked for it, Tyler reads the last Reddit Trial by Fire: Colby.
Do you think you can handle heart-pounding racing with speeds in excess of 20 whole miles per hour? Here at TADPOG, we feel the need…the need for speed. No. Wait. That’s a different video game series entirely. Let’s try again. Here at TADPOG, we feel the Kart…the Kart for Mario. Hm. Okay. That didn’t quite roll off the tongue. Anyway…on this episode, Nicole returns to TADPOG to help us talk about Mario Kart 64, which is ranked by Dorkly as the 6th best game for the Nintendo 64.
It may not be as inspirational as anthropomorphized animals shouting motivational phrases at you, and our delicate tummies are still queasy from the battering g-forces we experienced playing this game…but we decided to record another episode of TADPOG Podcast anyway. On this episode we’re talking about Dorkly’s 7th ranked Nintendo 64 game, Star Fox 64. We’ve included everything you could possibly want: dentist stories, sneezing, an authentic cajun accent and a healthy dose of gross-outs.
Check your banana hoard real quick. All those bananas still there? Whew! That was a close one. Time to relax with an episode of TADPOG and not think about your bananas for an hour-and-a-half, right? Thanks to The Swamps of Dagobah, this is possibly the grossest episode of TADPOG yet. We open listener mail on the air, talk about personal fitness again and most importantly talk about Dorkly’s 8th Ranked Nintendo 64 game, Donkey Kong 64.
