We stood at the edge of the abyss, staring into the violent darkness and shouted, “WE LOVE SANDWICH POPE PHIL HAWKINS! YOU CANNOT HAVE HIM!” and the darkness whispered back, “Have him then.” So the Randomizer chose a Phil Hawkins game TWO WEEKS IN A ROW bringing us Ghoul Patrol this week! Have you heard of Ghoul Patrol? Probably not. Its the sequel to Zombies Ate My Neighbors, but you wouldn’t guess that from the title. We talk about Bois, Burger King, and Kid’s Cuisine – like always. But this time we all sprinkle in some Ghoul Patron chat. Enjoy!
From the darkest depths of the darkest night, the Randomizer chose for us play Dungeon Master, the 1992 port of a 1987 Atari ST dungeon crawler. It has some good history and some bad history. To do a proper study of this game we bring on Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins, as we do with all SNES dungeon crawlers. We talk about Melissa’s experience with the Country Music Awards, the glory of Herald Arthur’s battlecry of PINGAS, and our old stomping ground of Palace Chat. Enjoy!
Do you LOVE Conan the Barbarian? Do you love him so much you’ll consume anything vaguely resembling him, including media that stole his imagine just to capitalize on his popularity? Do you LOVE poorly designed fighting games released far after any time that it could have been relevant? No? Good, because no one does. But theoretically if such an audience existed then WE TOTALLY HAVE A GAME FOR YOU! BATTLE BLAZE! Don’t worry – not only do we do a deep dive into this ridiculousness, we also discuss odd fetishes and Richard Dawson. So come on down and enjoy our misery.
The Randomizer works in mysterious ways. After throwing sports game after sports game in our faces, IT FINALLY THROWS US SOMETHING IN OUR WHEEL HOUSE — months after it would have been SEO relevant — BUT STILL! So this week we break down Marvel Super Heroes in War of the Gems for the SNES! We start off by enjoying some snacks sent by Better Than Us Choctopus, we talk about Call of Cthulhu and just a bit about Star Wars, and then we wrap things up with a glorious quiz from Ross-Rachel Green.
Marvel Super Heroes in War of the Gems Podcast Shownotes:
It has been over two years since we have recorded our last actual play of the Call of Cthulhu tabletop role-playing game. Rhythm Master Paul Corn, Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress, and Casey (we’ll probably come up with a great title for him at some point) join us to roll up some investigators for a campaign entitled Piggy Palace. It’s an original story by Tyler that takes place in the crime-ridden streets of 1981 Vancouver, British Columbia. We present to you Chapter One of this story. The rest of the chapters will be available on our Patreon page. Chapter Two and a bonus session of our character creation is available there now!
Call of Cthulhu (Actual Play) Podcast Shownotes:
Our character creation session and Chapter Two of Piggy Palace are both available on Patreon right now, if that’s your kind of thing.
ESPN Speed World, ESPN Baseball Tonight, ESPN National Hockey Night, and ESPN Sunday Night NFL. It is with these unholy elements we worship and seek the please our dark chaotic god, The Randomizer. Okay, we love the Randomizer but this week was a very rough one for us at TADPOG. Rather than do these as individual episodes (which would truly be no good for anyone) we chose to roll them into one episode. Honestly, they probably should have been on the same cartridge. So please enjoy our attempt to cross sport?
Well, here we go again with this great gift from the Randomizer. HOWEVER, the blessing passed onto us is in a series so we can roll these two wonders together. What games, you ask? Elite Soccer and World Soccer ’94: Road to Glory. Part of the Striker series across the pond. We might not have the best track record with sports games BUT NOT ANYMORE! THIS EPISODE OF JAM PACKED FULL OF SPORTSISH STUFF! LADYBUGS! RODNEY DANGERFIELD! SPORTS QUIZZES! A REVIEW OF POPEYE’S CHICKEN SANDWICH! WE PROMISE YOU WILL ENJOY THIS PRETTY WEIRD EPISODE.
We prayed to Randomizer while wearing Dr. Seuss hats, wearing alien pendants, wearing JNCOs full of yo-yos. The Randomizer accepted our offering of 90s trends and responded with giving us Beavis and Butt-Head for the SNES to review. We had to bring on our most Wizened Sage, Ian Chandler, to help gird our Mike Judge mindset to properly enjoy the game. We talk movies, try some hot mustard, take a quiz, and get the REAL AND TRUE STORY to Beavis and Butt-Head. Probably.
