Ep. 486 – Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Happy (day after) New Year! Now that we have severely dated yet another episode—Chocto (you know him from YouTube) joins us on this one to talk about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch. Yes, we realize this game is less than a month old. It hardly qualifies as an “old game” but we do our best to shoehorn retro gaming references in (okay, maybe not our best). We focus on the Adventure Mode a lot but we also talk about the game in a broader sense, and we end up talking about previous Smash Bros. games as well. Of course we talk about our mains and speculate on DLC fighters. During the middle of the show a strange package from Link makes an appearance. We wrap things up by tackling a Smash Quiz that was sent in by Quiz Master Bovine Bear Matt.

Ep. 485 – Doki Doki Literature Club

Doki Doki Literature Club

Merry (day after) Christmas! Now that we have severely dated this episode—Rhythm Master Paul Corn and Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress Chandra join us on this one to talk about Doki Doki Literature Club by Dan Salvato. It’s a free visual novel released on Windows, Mac, and Linux. We don’t typically do this but…we’re going to show our hand here in the written post and say that this visual novel is very good and it is worth experiencing. We recommend you check it out before listening to the back half of this episode because we spoil it like a chihuahua in an expensive purse. The first forty minutes are filled with us goofing off, eating exotic “meat products” sent in by our friend Link, and playing a fun game called “Dumpster Treasure or Prized Possession” brought to us by Holy Dumpster Diver, so that’s all spoiler-free content. We wrap things up by responding to listener voicemails.

Ep. 484 – Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse

Castle of Illusion

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!

Ep. 483 – Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Part 2)

Symphony of the Night

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.

Ep. 482 – Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (Part 1)

Symphony of the Night

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

Ep. 481 – Cuphead

Cuphead

Hot dawg! We figured that this was a good week for a swell podcast about Cuphead, the run-and-gunner by StudioMDHR. While this game may have released in 2017, it is undeniably retro-inspired. We talk about the game but we also talk about cartoons in general, and  we take a Boss Rush quiz which was submitted by Quizmaster Matt. As if that’s not enough, we are joined by Coco (aka CocoConfession on Twitch) to help us talk about the finer points of the game!

Ep. 480 – Fallout 4 Downloadable Content

Fallout 4 DLC

Did you not get enough of our popular Fallout 4 episodes that eventually people started to complain about since there were so many? You’re in luck! We do a TODPOG episode over every little bit of the Fallout 4 DLC. Just to make sure we cover everything we bring on Drinksmith Joey Webster and Ross Rachel-Green of the Nothing to Play podcast. We eat some weird and spicy foods courtesy of Kevin Link of Super Bomberman 2 fame. Ross tells a very British bathroom story. Joey celebrates his TADPOGiversary. We actually talk DLC, take a quiz and give some beards and glasses. If you’re ready to round out your TADPOG Fallout 4 experience then this one is for you!

Ep. 479 – Cosmic Star Heroine

Cosmic Star Heroine

Hey! We got review copies of Cosmic Star Heroine for the Nintendo Switch courtesy of Zeboyd Games. So we bring on our hardcore heroine expert Saint Zach. We open some packages. WE DO A MOSTLY SPOILER FREE REVIEW of this game, we only flub up on a few very minor points. Bovine Bear Quizmaster Matt gives us a Heroine Quiz and Zach treats you to his bird story for a stinger. ENJOY!
