Courtesy of the Randomizer and an independent wrestler who requested we do this episode back in 2014, we bring you Phantom 2040! This game has some long reaching and interesting lore but in true TADPOG fashion we get to that about 40 minutes into show. We talk about the return of pizza mascots, the kinks of Archie characters, a little anime, a little fantasy fiction, and how Tyler thought he was going to a live recording of Saturday Night Live. So come hear us chat, take a quiz, and talk a little about Phantom 2040.
DUCK DODGERS! No, wait, that’s not the title. It totally should be the title but instead it is called Daffy Duck: The Marvin Missions. Missed opportunity. Well, the Randomizer threw this one at us and it was one of the more polarized opinions between Tyler and Dave in quite some time. Dave had a very busy week so we delve into talk on an INCREDIBLE GIFT he received, Ninja Turtles Rescuepalooza, Pac Man 99, Whisker Squad, Hades, and so many other things. We promise we do eventually get to Duck Dodgers. Blarg, Daffy Duck: The Marvin Missions. Come give us a listen!
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!
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!
Oh man, finally! We are everyone’s favorite 1993 time travel based law enforcement show starring a handsome male lead who also has plenty of movies under his belt – TIME COP! What? No? What the hell is Time Trax? THE SAME THING BUT WORSE? AND THEY MADE A GAME ABOUT IT? HOW IS IT? Listen and see! We try to be funny to compensate and Terrified Michelle calls in with the most divisive question since “Wiping: Sitting or Standing?”
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.
