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.
Fresh off the the heels of the Louisville Arcade Expo, we are discussing Suikoden. Soo-ee-ko-dan?? But really, this game has been on our to-do list since the beginning of the podcast. So…you might want to actually get ready for some game talk. The love had been edging for years and finally gets to erupt forth. We also open a hand-delivered package from First Time Caller Nate Glines, we rank french fries, and we wrap things up by listening to voicemail.
Of course it’s about time we talk about Crash Bandicoot by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation! And what is a podcast about Crash without a little talk about Dexter and Frasier? We invited famed Cootologist, Exalted Lord Mike of Perdue, on this episode to help us break down the game. We take a Marsupial Soup quiz, which was sent in by Bovine Bear Matt.
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’re joined by Ben Caruth of Street Pizza and Shaun Muldowney of Nerdy Thursday to talk about Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2. We take a skateboarding quiz by Quiz Master Matt Cowan, and we actually talk about real skateboarding too! There are announcements for TADPOG Prom 2019 and for an upcoming TADPOG Nation Super Smash Bros Ultimate tournament, and Tyler makes an important personal announcement as well. Continue reading →
In the midst of a Christmas flurry, we set aside a little time to finish talking about Final Fantasy Tactics. Even though we started discussing this game last episode, there’s still a lot of game talk in this one. We’re talking about a PlayStation game, so of course Mad Catz comes up, as does Final Fantasy XII. Tyler tells a GameStop story and we receive a postcard from Oxford. Continue reading →
