We dared to walk into the darkness. We gathered our courage and took step after step into the inky blackness. We journeyed deeper than all others who came before us. We could see no light, we could see no end and we could see no beginning. It was there, in the absolute darkness, that we held our breath and whispered, “Show us the way. No whammies. No whammies. No whammies. Stop.” After an infinity in our minds that silence was broken; the darkness whispered back, “Mickey Mouse’s Ultimate Challenge.” TODAY, we cover Mickey’s Ultimate Challenge and bring back our dearly beloved Oathbreaker Blake Woods. We talk about World of Warcraft, a little Kim Kardashian, and then take some calls. We also give you the whole spectrum of adventure in this itty bitty game. Enjoy!
Vegas, baby! We’re talking about Vegas Stakes for the SNES. Who knows the American practice of Las Vegas style gambling and living? YOU KNOW IT’S ROSS RACHEL GREEN! We come in hot with stories about the Brain Surgery Bros, some more potential testicle surgeries, what Dave plans to do to make side money in his retirement, a story about a secret so deep that it took hypnotism to draw it out and just so so so many Albert Fish tangents. So if you like British intrigue, trusting strangers, and cannibalistic sadistic/masochistic serial killers – we just have the perfect SNES Vegas Stakes podcast episode for you!
Okay! Maybe you were expecting to hear an episode on Vegas Stakes for the Super Nintendo. That’s a legitimate expectation because on our last episode we stated that we would in-fact be covering Vegas Stakes. Welp. Due to some serious circumstances we were not able to make that happen, but we will get to it…eventually. In the meantime, please enjoy this Patreon bonus episode on Super Mario Odyssey that we released last year.
WARNING: This episode starts out with some siiiiick references to the following TV shows: Friends, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, and The Office. We also talk about Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch by request of Tyler (of TADPOG fame). We end up talking about Mario in a broader sense and talk generally about 3D platformers as a genre. We end by playing some listener voicemail. (Also, Tyler announces his new career as a Super Punch-Out!! speed runner.)
From the numerical ether, our withering god of randomness doth bequeath this game – King of the Monsters 2! So, it’s a game. We played it. We beat it. We talk about it. A little dash of DragonCon, a pinch of a package from Chris Murray, and gallon of 1 call full of Harrison Ford accusations from Terrified Michelle! So please come eat this monster of a TADPOG cake with us. The cake is also decorated with Minions per the request of a TADPOG Sweetheart, Nicole.
