We here at TADPOG love a good SNES JRPG. Huge fans. So when the Randomizer belched forth an RPG, we were excited. And then we played said RPG, Tecmo Secret of the Stars. We couldn’t tackle a game like this without Captain Gun Nerd Jon Turley. So we have some Corona virus chat, give an update on life, drink many drinks, and touch ever so slightly on this game. Enjoy!
“FOR THIS, YOU SHALL PAY!!!” The Randomizer bellowed as we turned our back on it. We crawled out of the dark cave we were trapped in only to be saved by THE CAPED PODCASTERS! That’s right, crossover time! This week we anger the Randomizer by choosing our own crossover episode the the Caped Podcasters with Batman Forever. Is it a bad game and a bad movie? Listen and see! (Yes, it is.)
“Spit out your choice, foul beast.” Dave demanded of the Randomizer. “Sport.” The darkness whispered back. “Foreman for Real.” is said stoicly. “Boxing? HA, that sounds great.” Tyler replied enthusiastically. The darkness dryly chuckled in response. SO WE PLAYED THE SNES BOXING SEQUEL FOREMAN FOR REAL, STARRING GEORGE FOREMAN! Guess what? Garbage so hot is burned our hands. But we do drink and take plenty of tangents, come check it out!
Hi everyone! Do you like Street Fighter? Me too! What about sculptures? ME TOO! How about the 90s? YES! Do you know what you get when you smash together those elements in the vaguest way possible? CLAYFIGHTER! Do you remember loving it? Come with us and take off those nostalgia glasses and give it another go!
HEY! LISTEN! Well, please listen. This episode about Super Star Fox Weekend is a little different that the others you’ve gotten used to because we are talking about competition cartridges. The Randomizer chose Super Star Fox Weekend Challenge for us so we are lumping in the Donkey Kong Country Competition Cartridge, 1990 Nintendo World Championship, Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991, Nintendo Campus Challenge 1992, Powerfest ’94, Blockbuster World Championships, and Blockbuster Game Championship II. Do you like historical gaming goofs? We think you’ll like this one so give it a listen, please.
Street Hockey ’95. WOOOOOF. Let’s not beat around the bush. The Randomizer did us dirty with, up until this point of the show, the worst video game we have ever played. So we bring some prime trash talk. We also talk about Coolio, Sexy Ned Flanders, and get in some deep MTV Lore. Please, enjoy our pain.
“What do you love, David?” the Randomizer cooed. “I love Pac-Man.” Dave replied defiantly. “Oh, do you? Then you must be very thirsty of a sequel. HERE! PAC-MAN 2: THE NEW ADVENTURES! AHAHAHAHAHA!!!!”
Did you know there was a sequel? Did you know it’s nothing like the Pac-Man games you know and love? Come with us as we recount our confusing slog as you play a slingshot god who flings his will at an ever mood-shifting Pan-Man. Don’t worry, we talk about the Grateful Dead, Phish, Shameless, take a quiz and make the BEST PHONE CALL.
Oh man, finally! We are everyone’s favorite 1993 time travel based law enforcement show starring a handsome male lead who also has plenty of movies under his belt – TIME COP! What? No? What the hell is Time Trax? THE SAME THING BUT WORSE? AND THEY MADE A GAME ABOUT IT? HOW IS IT? Listen and see! We try to be funny to compensate and Terrified Michelle calls in with the most divisive question since “Wiping: Sitting or Standing?”
