I know we ask you so much every week but we have been so so so good this week and we promise to keep being so good if you would do me this one favor. When we record it’s going to be Dave’s birthday. He is just the best spicy boi and deserves so much on his special 38th birthday. He really loves Pac-Man! So if you could please give us a Pac-Man game that is not a reskin of another game, we would love it so much! Could it not have horrible music? And if the story made sense, we would be good for the whole rest of the year! If we got all that we would try some spicy seafood snacks, take a quiz, and get so Baja Blasted!

We dared to walk into the darkness. We gathered our courage and took step after step into the inky blackness. We journeyed deeper than all others who came before us. We could see no light, we could see no end and we could see no beginning. It was there, in the absolute darkness, that we held our breath and whispered, “Show us the way. No whammies. No whammies. No whammies. Stop.” After an infinity in our minds that silence was broken; the darkness whispered back, “Mickey Mouse’s Ultimate Challenge.” TODAY, we cover Mickey’s Ultimate Challenge and bring back our dearly beloved Oathbreaker Blake Woods. We talk about World of Warcraft, a little Kim Kardashian, and then take some calls. We also give you the whole spectrum of adventure in this itty bitty game. Enjoy!
Let’s get this out of the way first. We do the Adventures of Yogi Bear, courtesy of the Randomizer, and i’ts about what you would expect. So, in order to enjoy our time with it – we truly get Baja Blasted and really go off the rails. We open a package from Bunny and Kira, and we do a deep dive into Hanna Barbera. Impressions are heavy, and spiked watermelon smoothies flow like the spice on Arrakis. Personally, we think this hits that “TADPOG Classic” tier. So please, enjoy and understand we know that Albert Fish was a terrible monster.
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.
OH MAN! ARE YOU GUYS READY TO GET TOTALLY BUCK WILD THIS WEEK?! You know we bring it heavy with Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (and a surprising amount of game talk). Castle of Illusion is the current game of the month over on the Retro Gaming Monthly Facebook group, and we regularly talk about their monthly selections. We figured it was the perfect time to invite Steven Michael (the creator of the RGM group and Nerdy Thursday Super Fan) on to the show to dish about the game with us. Enjoy! Continue reading →
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 →
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 →
