It’s our first episode in TADPOG Hexagon! We’re (kinda) talking about Pro Sport Hockey for the SNES, the 1993 hockey game developed by Tose and published by Jaleco. Captain Gun Nerd Jon and Wizened Sage Ian join us and help us take this episode deep into “Oops! All Intro Stories” territory. There’s more Green Ranger talk that carries over from last episode, a little MCU talk, and Jon finds out that he’s not Irish. So many tangents you’ll think you’re in Geometry class.
Once again, ALL HAIL THE RANDOMIZER and its gift of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers for the SNES. We talk about Fox Network contests for kids, the true awesome power of the Green Ranger, the tale of a Big Kid and a Cowboy Kid, and there’s even some talk about this little gem of a game. Also, soak in that stinger.
We know everyone LOVES it when we cover sports games, so courtesy of the our new TADPOG god, “The Randomizer”, we bring you a sports game every bit as good as we are – Roger Clemens’ MVP Baseball! We have to bring back Chris Black to fill in all the gaps. Tyler tells his story, “A Tale of Two Beggars” and Chris eats some 30 year old gum.
And on that day, Tyler and Dave began their long journey through the entire remainder of the SNES Library. How many companions would they discover along the way? How many forgotten treasures? How many tangents about their junk would lead them astray? Only time will tell. Join them today on the journey of 714 steps with The 7th Saga. But only if you have the strength of Ron Perlman, the dexterity of Ron Perlman, and the broadness of chin of, well, Ron Perlman.
With more cloaks and chains than a cultish orgy, we take a bribe and play Todd McFarlane’s Spawn, the 1995 action/beat ’em up for the Super Nintendo. Thanks Mysterious iTunes Donor- Tim I. Tunes who totally didn’t bribe us to produce an episode on this game, we dove full tilt into the 90s fest that is this game. We have plenty of deep religious discussion, sexual merchandise, and well researched John Leguizamo trivia.
Todd McFarlane’s Spawn: The Video Game Podcast Shownotes:
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.
Hey, Jeppy! We’re talking about Smart Ball, the 1992 SNES Action-Adventure game by Game Freak. (They called it Jerry Boy in Japan, you probably know it by that name). Not only do we talk about slime boys, we open a Christmas card in March from The Piggs! We also take a moment to cast TV dads as the Seven Deadly Sins.
