You like that sweet Gothic Action Platformer talk that we do oh-so often when we talk about Castlevania? We have more when we discuss the new retro style offering, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon. But of course we also have to talk about The Hardy Boys and how Frank and Joe Hardy should influence “classic TADPOG” episode art. Did someone say Frasier Call of Cthulhu? Of course we cover that. We open a package from Mastermold Mike, Tyler issues a Spin-Off quiz, and we wrap it all up with a dramatic reading.
We plunge into the murky poo-poo water beneath the Big Apple long enough to talk about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES. Yes, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles—freaks on fire, April showing her support, electric seaweed! We open a package from Listener Sean. Yes, we make TMNT parallels to Frasier as well as Friends.
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

This week we’re back, baby! And we’re talking about Mega Man 2 for the NES. We also open a big package from Mastermold and a couple of Christmas cards. We also talk about R. Kelly and DMX a little, and there is a “robots in pop-culture” quiz. Continue reading
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
This week we’re continuing our playthrough of the games on the NES Classic by talking about Kirby’s Adventure, the 1993 Nintendo platformer. We talk about the game for quite a bit but we also try a spicy package from Padawan Joey Webster; dwell on Family Feud; and Dave administers the darkest quiz we’ve ever done on the show!

We could be out searching for three sacred treasures and squaring off against Medusa’s army, but we decided to just record a podcast episode about Kid Icarus instead. That’s right, we’re still playing through the games on the NES Classic in alphabetical order and now Nintendo’s 1987 action platformer gets its turn in the spotlight. Also: the podcast is now five years old! We open a spicy package from Ruby Baron Paul Clewell of Loaded Cart Podcast, and in honor of the protagonist of Kid Icarus, there is a Famous Pits Quiz.
