After so many references, so many mini discussions, and so much hype—we now bring you the goods and discuss one of our favorite new games, Hades! We needed to bring a strong show for such a strong game so we brought back Coco of CocoConfession and Cuphead fame to join us in our deep dive. Our love for this game is palpable so we stray from our standard formula for this episode and just have a solid discussion amongst friends about a game we love. Come hang out and we hope you like it!
For well over a year, we saw the cries of those dozens who listen to this podcast. “#moremiller!”, they cried! Well, he is our foremost Final Fantasy II/IV-ologist, so here he is for Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. The After Years is a pretty lengthy game, so we are bringing back the ol’ two-part TADPOG. We each played a different version of the game (Wii, PSP, and Steam), so we all have a different take on it. Come hang out!
Tyler and Dave have played RPGs, football games, soccer games, baseball games, platformers, and puzzlers…but we know what everyone has really been waiting for: some sweet sweet bass fishing content. We are joined by the person we know who craves bass the most, Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins, to help discuss Bass Masters Classic and Bass Masters Classic: Pro Edition for the SNES! We talk about these games, our child hood bedrooms, our children’s bedrooms, and how we should tackle the rest of the Randomizer’s gifts. Enjoy!
Dave sings hymns to The Randomzier this week as it gave him one of his favorite childhood games, Jurassic Park 2: The Chaos Continues. How thick are his nostalgia glasses? What will Tyler think of this game having never heard of it? I’m sure you know. Come on over, there is a southern dramatic reading and a quiz!
Did you love the basketball episode last week? Do you just live for TADPOG Sports? Well, you’re likely totally alone. So, one person, we bring you a hockey game, courtesy of the Randomizer—Hit the Ice! The most NBA Jamesest of SNES hockey games…but is that a good thing? You can probably guess. Come hang out with us chatting about bedtime schedules, drinking soda, a little Hades, and a little Outer Worlds.
Barkley: Shut Up and Jam! (sadly not Gaiden or Gaiden II) was the game thrown at us by the Randomizer this week. So, of course, we talk a little about Hades and some other pretty good games we have played. There is PLENTY of Barkley chat, Shaq chat, general 90s basketball references, and a deep exploration of rules concerning what happens if you can defeat Sir Charles Barkley in a game of basketball. Come check out our best attempt at sports chat yet.
What do game do we want? HADES! When do we want it? NOW! What did we end up playing? RUN SABER! How was it? …surprising?
This week the Randomizer threw up a total mystery in Run Saber. We may have talked off mic about Hades for an hour before we started but we had a pretty good deep dive into Run Saber, it’s not at all what we expected. So join us as we talk a little Hades, a lot Run Saber and a pretty solid dramatic reading of the crazy story behind this game.
The Randomizer tried to throw us X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse which we have already done an episode on, so we countered with a game we were actually interested in: X-Men 2: Clone Wars for the Sega Genesis. IT’S OUR 8th ANNIVERSARY! So we are joined by Brandon of Axelay fame, and his girlfriend Cheryl of Brandon fame, to celebrate. This was a planned thing and not by total coincidence. So gather around and listen to traveling tales, stories of the past, a great package, some X-Men talk, and much more!
