Toys! That long lauded movie that all sorts of kids completely misunderstood and had totally different expectations from has come to the shores of TADPOG. Worry not, we watched the movie and come fully equipped to talk about it as well as the game. Oh, HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY. We celebrate that by taking a romantic comedy draft. Ian discusses some Overwatch news, we make plenty of The Dark Tower jokes (we cry your pardon if you don’t love The Dark Tower even thought you should). We talk about fishing on boats in various video games. But we know you’re ready for that juicy and delectable Toys talk for the movie and the game. So please, come sit awhile and listen!
Dirty Harry asks us just how lucky we feeling playing his NES game this week on TADPOG. This week may not get us any closer to finishing our SNES list but it’s a good continuation of our “R Rated Moves turned into video games” series. Yes, it’s another series. We love them. Get used to it. Everything is a series. But before we do a deep dive into the first Dirty Harry movie and the NES game – we talk Overwatch 2. Ian has a particularly good match. We briefly visit The Horror Hole, discuss the latest offerings of Eddie Murphy, hit up The Dark Tower, and do a little Christmas themed draft. So please, come get dirty with us. Dirty Harry. If you feel lucky. Punk.
The Ignition Factor! Is it a brand new game show hosted by Guy Fieri? A drag racing competition? No! It’s a strategic action fire fighting game! So, please, come sit down with Tyler, Ian, and Dave to discuss the finer details of this SNES game that is now on the Nintendo Switch Online service. We celebrate Dave’s Girth Brooks of a birthday! Tyler has a disturbing dream about Ian, how balancing it would be to die on your birthday,
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!
Are you the type of person who likes customizing a sweet car in Gran Turismo? Do you also like battling robots? Do you strongly prefer retro games? Then MAYBE you will be into the games we talk about this week, the SNES MechWarrior Games – MechWarrior and MechWarrior 3050. Not only do we talk about these games but we also discuss getting microchipped by Bill Gates, and how easy it is to ruin a dining room table.
So there are really only two kinds of kids in the world. Those whole like Animaniacs and those who don’t like Animaniacs. Are you with us or against us? Well, we’re against the Randomizer this week by forging our own path and talking about Animaniacs for the SNES. We just had to bring on our foremost Animaniologist in Wizened Sage Ian Chander! We talk Animaniacs the show, Animaniacs the game, Phasmophobia, Plucky Duck and more! Come sit awhile and listen.
“FOR THIS, YOU SHALL PAY!!!” The Randomizer bellowed as we turned our back on it. We crawled out of the dark cave we were trapped in only to be saved by THE CAPED PODCASTERS! That’s right, crossover time! This week we anger the Randomizer by choosing our own crossover episode the the Caped Podcasters with Batman Forever. Is it a bad game and a bad movie? Listen and see! (Yes, it is.)
HEY! LISTEN! Well, please listen. This episode about Super Star Fox Weekend is a little different that the others you’ve gotten used to because we are talking about competition cartridges. The Randomizer chose Super Star Fox Weekend Challenge for us so we are lumping in the Donkey Kong Country Competition Cartridge, 1990 Nintendo World Championship, Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991, Nintendo Campus Challenge 1992, Powerfest ’94, Blockbuster World Championships, and Blockbuster Game Championship II. Do you like historical gaming goofs? We think you’ll like this one so give it a listen, please.
