Ep. 417 – Call of Cthulhu Wrap Up

With the Call of Cthulhu Actual Play finished, we decided to sit down and discuss the game. We ask questions like: What did the investigators miss? How else could the story have ended? Why didn’t Alex “Chili Dog” Peterson just uppercut Cthulhu? Joining the discussion is the sweetest pair of sweethearts you’ve ever met: Josh and Nicole (aka investigators Brock and Donna). Tyler explains the motivations and inspirations behind this game and Josh clarifies what he meant by “that ending sucks”.

Ep. 415 – Call of Cthulhu (Actual Play Part 8)

Call of Cthulhu Actual Play Part 8

The date is August 9, 1977. Short of options, the investigators have recruited the help of CIA agent Mr. Zeus, who is also a member of the Knights Templar. The Knights have been working against cult leader Jean Lafitte for hundreds of years and were able to help the investigators locate Lafitte’s personal holdings in New York City: the Astor Hotel and several properties at the harbor. It was discovered that Lafitte had been working through a Leng Spider, disguised as a dog named “Harvey”, to instruct the Son of Sam. After doing some detective work and bartering drugs for information, the investigators received witness testimonial that Harvey had been seen driving the yellow Ford Galaxy which previously had been spotted by the investigators at the Process Church. Police records indicated that the Ford Galaxy is owned by one David Berkowitz. After tracking down Berkowitz’s address, the investigators are now on their way to the apartment of the Son of Sam.

Ep. 401 – Call of Cthulhu (Actual Play Part 1)

Call of Cthulhu Actual Play Part 1

It has been a little over a year since we have recorded an actual play of a tabletop role-playing game. So! We got the band back together. That’s right, baby! TADPOG Sweethearts Josh and Nicole Nance join us to roll up some investigators for a Call of Cthulhu Actual Play entitled “August 5th, 1977”. It’s an original story by Tyler so it’s kind of a big deal. It has been awhile since any of us have played Call of Cthulhu—so we spend some time shaking off the rust—but we assure you that characters get created.

Ep. 390 – Persona 4

Persona 4

Drew and Bailey from Hops and Heroes join us to give their impressions of Persona 4, the RPG by Atlus. We do talk about the game a little, but there are lots of tangents about Bailey’s hair, the delicious and affordable Aldi/Trader Joe’s Thanksgiving, using an iPad with a large fleshy sponge-finger and of course Chris Gaines.

Ep. 355 – Phantasy Star II (Part 2)

Phantasy Star II

This is our continuation of Phantasy Star II (kinda). We wrap the game up by assigning beards, glasses and achievements, but we actually spend a lot more time taking a quiz called “The 100% Accurate ‘What Is My Fursona?’ Test” instead. We open a package from Wizened Sage Ian. There’s a story about burst eyeballs in there somewhere. And we end up taking some texts and calls as well.

We’re talking about Phantasy Star II by Sega, the 14th-ranked game on Digital Trends’ 25 Best Sega Genesis games. Tyler got lost; Dave watched two men pee; we open a package full of Mexican treats from Sandwich Pope Phil; and we talk about Doctor Who for a bit.

Ep. 349 – Final Fantasy Mystic Quest

Mystic Quest Title Screen

We’re talking about Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, the 1992 Super Nintendo RPG by Square. Well, technically Tyler talks about it; Dave listens and asks questions. We try the new Cheetos Chicken Fries from Burger King. We open an amazing package from Doug. There’s some general Final Fantasy talk liberally mixed in there. We also play some voicemail.

Ep. 348 – Shadowrun (Genesis)

Shadowrun

It took us awhile but we were able to fight our way to a cyberterminal in the barrens long enough to upload this episode to the matrix. We’ve finally reached Digital Trends’ 16th-ranked Sega Genesis game: Shadowrun. We also open amazing packages which were sent to us by Ruby Baron Paul Clewell of Loaded Cart Gaming!

Ep. 339 – To the Moon

To The Moon Title Screen

We’re talking about (spoiler free!) To the Moon, the 2011 adventure, role-playing game by Freebird Games. We get serious and talk about how we think video games tell stories uniquely only to turn around and set a whole bunch of Patreon goals involving penguins, waifu body pillows and fun with jars! It’s a weird one.

Ep. 334 – Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Zelda2 Title Screen

We’re joined by Sweetheart Josh Nance and Sandwich Pope Phil to talk about Zelda II: The Adventure of Link for the Nintendo Entertainment System (aka the Dark Souls of Zelda games). Technically, Dave asks a lot of questions while Tyler, Josh and Phil talk about the game. Phil reads YouTube comments, shares an embarrassing poop story, and we talk about the ghost of Dragoncon future. Oh! And TADPOG shirts!
