Ep. 460 – Kung Fu

Kung Fu

This week we scale five floors of the Devil’s Temple and punch our way through hoards of vest-wearing minions in order to talk about Kung Fu, the 1984 side-scrolling beat ’em up for the NES. We also talk about Tyler’s birthday, Jerry Stiller (of course), marriage, and bidets. We open a package from Sandwich Pope Phil and we play a few listener voicemails.

Ep. 453 – Tsuppari Ozumo

Tsuppari Ozumo

We strap on our respective mawashis to talk about Tsuppari Ozumo, the 1987 sumo wrestling game developed and published by Tecmo for the Nintendo Famicom. So…why are we covering this game? Well. We’re done talking about the games on the NES Classic, and this one is on the Famicom Mini (also Dave really wanted to play it). If you’ve been listening to the show for a while you know that we aren’t exactly what you would call “sports experts” but maybe Tsuppari Ozumo is the game that converts us. Maybe from this point forward we become real big Sumoheads. At the very least, we discuss the game. We open a package from Trash Bear.

Ep. 451 – The Legend of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda

Welp. We did it. We’ve reached the end of another list. We’ve already done an episode on Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, so this episode concludes our NES Classic series. And it is a loooong episode! Josh (of Uniracers fame) and Brandon (of being Tyler’s childhood friend fame) join us to talk about this Nintendo classic: The Legend of Zelda. There’s some game talk. But there’s also a church basement story. Tyler gets pretty drunk and we open a package from Edge Lord Kyle.

Ep. 448 – Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

Super Mario Land 2

What do we do on this episode? Tyler’s Adventure in Dream Land ends with the most special chicken, Dave gets a Steam Link, Tyler plays a mobile game and goes to Graceland and we both dive into Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins for the Game Boy.  Continue reading

Ep. 444 – StarTropics

StarTropics

Start ropics? Startropical Capricorn? STARTROPICS! That’s what we are doing for this week’s rundown of the games on the NES Classic, as brought to you by Mastermold Mike. Are you super thirsty for all that StarTropic goodness? Well, don’t be. It is a very long walk through hobos asking for money and Brandon of Axelay fame calling you a skank before we get there. Really, we do talk about the game but not for about 40 minutes. So don’t say we didn’t warn you, but it’s totally worth it to take that journey with us.  Continue reading

Ep. 441 – Ninja Gaiden

Ninja Gaiden

Like two ghosts in the moonlight, the ninja podcasters stalk their prey. Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about Ninja Gaiden for the NES. If that’s not enough: We talk about jeans! We offhandedly mention Shallow Hal! There’s a Ninja Quiz!  Continue reading

Ep. 439 – Metroid

Ep. 436 – Mario Bros.

Mario Bros.

Wednesday is upon us again, and we’re continuing our quest to discuss each game on the NES Classic. In this episode we’re talking about Mario Bros. No, not that Mario Bros., the original Mario Bros. Y’know, the 1983 arcade platformer that was ported to the NES. It’s been a snowy week here at TADPOG HQ, so there are a few snow stories. We also decide that it’s important to know your sexual lemons. We learn about Kario, there is a celebrity twins quiz, and we take some calls.  Continue reading
