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.
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.
Tyler’s back, baby! …and we’re talking about Caveman Games, the 1990 port of Caveman Ughlympics for the NES. We bring on leading TADPOG Nation anthropologist, Edgelord Kyle to talk about this historically authentic “sports video game”. We wrap things up by listening to some voicemails.
We strap on our respective mawashis to talk about Tsuppari Ozumo, the 1987 sumo wrestling game developed and published by Tecmo for the Nintendo Famicom. So…why are we covering this game? Well. We’re done talking about the games on the NES Classic, and this one is on the Famicom Mini (also Dave really wanted to play it). If you’ve been listening to the show for a while you know that we aren’t exactly what you would call “sports experts” but maybe Tsuppari Ozumo is the game that converts us. Maybe from this point forward we become real big Sumoheads. At the very least, we discuss the game. We open a package from Trash Bear. Continue reading →
Are you ready for some foooootball? We are!…or not? Either way, we strap on our helmets for this episode and talk about Tecmo Bowl for the NES. If you’re a longtime listener of our podcast, you know that sports games aren’t really our strong suit. That’s okay. We’re calling an audible (that’s a football thing, right?) and we’re bringing Time Lord Josh Edwards onto the field to lend us his gridiron know-how. Tyler issues a sports pop quiz, and we take a voicemail from Edge Lord Kyle about his personal experience with the game. Continue reading →
Now let’s come out boxing! So far we’ve been playing through the NES Classic games alphabetically, but for this episode we’re switching up the order for a special reason. Drew Rowland (long-time listener, fellow podcaster and friend of the show) is tying the knot with Bailey (of Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker fame) this week! Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! is one of Drew’s favorite games of all time, so we’ve decided to talk about it and it’s rerelease, Punch-Out!! (with Mr. Dream), in honor of the upcoming nuptials. Um, we also explore some dark places on this episode…so enjoy that! And don’t forget to join the Nintendo Fan Club today! Continue reading →
Sports! Welcome to a really weird episode where Tyler talks about 90 Minutes European Prime Goal for the Super Famicom. Wait, don’t go – we talk about other stuff too and Brandon’s here! Some important things happen in this episode: we realize we’re dads and there are phones just for us!; we rank pizza restaurants; and we answer some voicemail and texts.
Hey, we’re back on TADPOG’s strongest genre = sports. But this is actually our kind of sports game to play as we dive further into Dorkly’s Top 25 N64 games. So we discuss Mario Tennis and tennis….and Mario. So there are plenty of tangents going on where we discuss things we wrote as children, love for shoehorns and whether or not we are more like the Gilmore Girls or the Golden Girls.
