Plok! At long last we took The Randomizer hostage so we could force this game into our library. You know, since The Randomizer really tried to give us multiple sports games in a row. So we talk about Ian’s curious dental condition, many things Star Wars and Marvel, the amazing 2019 show Chernobyl, Bioshock 2 DLC Minerva’s Den, Dave’s latest anime venture, and of course – so much Plok. There was quite a bit to go into about this lesser know game (I’m blaming you, Rayman). So please sit awhile and listen to the retro video game opinions of three old cis white men. I’m sure that is very hard to find in podcast form.
SWAT Kats! It’s here! We know how badly you were waiting for a game about a Hanna-Barbera cartoon from 1993 that had 25 episodes on TBS. We know lots of people were looking forward to that tabletop but you, covid finds a way. So, instead we talk all things SWAT Kats! We discuss avoiding illness, taking medicine, guns, D&D and trying to not talk about D&D stories that no one else will care about. We do a pretty deep dive into the cartoon, why is was cancelled, and the game – all while finishing up with a quiz and some calls, enjoy!
DinoCity – do you say it like Dino-City or all together like Dinocity? Well, we have to tackle that first. So we restructure things a little bit so that our flow may be a little different for this episode. We have to start off with weird stories from our local mall, how we were afraid of ethnic foods as children, how Ian will track down some 40 year old fans for the TADPOG Hollanddeck – then a new structured dive into DinoCity. Some come sit awhile and listen.
What is the best game you can rent at Piggly Wiggly? That’s right, The Addams Family on the SNES. To truly cover this game we have to bring TADPOG IT back in force with Wizened Sage Ian and Captain Gun Nerd Jon. We discuss the great new social media platform, Jonbook! Neighbors with impressive things, Patty Duke, The Anime version of Mr. Ed, The Munsters, all the different Addams Families, and do a real deep dive into this game. It may actually surprise you. So, please, come sit awhile and listen.
Super Valis IV! You love this long running series on the SNES! Wait, you didn’t play the other three? They weren’t on SNES? They were much deeper PC games? Well, what does that makes this game? COME SIT AWHILE AND LISTEN while we delve into the good things and the bad things of the this PC port for the Super Nintendo. Tyler, Dave, and Ian talk Halloween, how amazing the products from Apes in Capes and Khris Vaughn are, and so much more.
Do you know how many cave man platformers there are for the SNES? Oddly, it’s a lot. Do you remember Joe & Mac being one of the best, but is it? We continue our wonderful streak of having on Wizened Sage Ian to delve into this childhood favorite. The sequel was covered MANY years ago but how does the original compare?
Wizened Sage Ian returns to the podcast to guest host much like Master Higgins returns to Super Adventure Island II! Things are a little different in the second Adventure Island on the SNES, which is appropriately named Super Adventure Island II. This game is a little bit of a departure from the series (we’ll get into that in this episode), and it’s very similar to another classic retro game (we’ll get into that too). Come dock your raft for a little bit and listen.
Super Adventure Island. It’s like Adventure Island but super. No, really. Normally we do games from the Randomzier but by means of Epic Artisanal Podcast Magic to temporarily seal away it away so we could do some games we want to try out. So come listen to us talk about Super Adventure Island, Adventure Island, some of versions of Adventure Island, why is Master Higgins called Master Higgins, what happened to that bee, some quality anime, a little Hades chat, and plenty more! Come sit awhile and listen!
