    Glad to see that Turrican 2 gets some love from IGN. Its often overlooked and I think most people pass over it due to being relatively obscure and expensive.

    • Yeah, I had never heard of the game prior to finding it on IGN’s list. You’re right, it’s pricey; we saw it listed on Amazon for about $90. I’m surprised that nugget of info didn’t make it into this episode.

      Based on your comment, I’m assuming you’re a fan of the game?

      • Matt B

        Its not in my top 10 SNES list, but it is a nice change of pace. I recommend everyone at least play it at some point. Its certainly not for everyone, but it is entertaining.

        I remember back when I worked at Video Game Depot, we had a distributor find tons of sealed SNES games and we sold them at fantastic prices. I think we had about 20 of these and sold them for $25 brand new (this would have been around 2001-2002ish)

  2. Are Tadpog points redeemable at Food Giant for Mondo?…if not can you guys make that happen for me

    • Thousands of TADPOG volunteers are slaving around the clock to make this dream a reality. Stay tuned.

    • Redeeming your TADPOG points is simple, just obtain a full text transcript, preferably by hand and in cursive, of the show in which you are authorized to receive your TADPOG points. Have them signed by your local TADPOG Chapter Head (subject to availability), place the signed transcript in a humidor of your choice and leave it in my garage over night. Come back in the morning to find your due amount of Mondo!

      (Garage and Mondo also subject to availability)

        I guess that explains why when I just went through the line at Food Giant with a pallet full of Mondo and the kid looked at me crazy when I told him to charge it to the TADPOG account. I didn’t realize yall had cut out the middle man and I could pick it up directly from you.
