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:
Has it been a long and difficult week for you? Do you need some podcast TLC? Don’t you worry, baby, we got you covered. We invite the Top Fan and Sandwich Pope of the TADPOG Nation, Phil Hawkins, on to discuss the Randomizer chosen Wizardry V. Don’t worry, Phil can’t keep us track all the time so we delve into more Soda Jerks, Circumcision Trinkets, Dungeons and Dragons, and we take a sweet little magic quiz from our very own Ross-Rachel Green. You’ve got 2 hours of love headed your way, we hope you enjoy!
Choctopus joins us as we turn our backs on The Randomizer (all hail The Randomizer!) for one week in order to talk about Goof Troop for the SNES. We talk about this 1993 Capcom action-adventure game (and anthropomorphic dog pirates), but in regular TADPOG fashion we meander down many paths of off-topic conversation. Yes, we swap chonky cat stories. We try to figure out who Mr. X is in the Resident Evil series. Do we spend time talking about Disney Afternoon cartoons and Nicktoons? Hyuck yes.
Hey! Listen! It’s (basically) episode #500! So we chose a big hit of nostalgia in the form of Final Fight 2: Electric Boogaloo. You know we have to bring a little Bailey Jay, a little cringe, a little weird sex story, and lots and lots of Mike Haggar.
Welcome to TADPNG, otherwise known as “Tyler and Dave’s Portable Network Graphics”—an audio program where hosts Tyler and Dave view .png files and describe them to each other in painstaking detail. Just kidding, it’s Tyler and Dave Play NEW Games! Get it? Okay, now that we’re all on the same page—the game that we discuss in this episode is Mega Man 11. Sure, the game just came out, but c’mon, it’s like Retro Nouveau™. Continue reading →
It’s raining bubbles! This week we’re talking about the Capcom shooter-puzzler for the SNES, Super Buster Bros. This game was requested by Sandwich Pope Phil, so we decided to invite him on to defend his suggestion. We open a package from Shadowrunner Kody. We take THREE quizzes! Continue reading →
This week we’re back, baby! And we’re talking about Mega Man 2 for the NES. We also open a big package from Mastermold and a couple of Christmas cards. We also talk about R. Kelly and DMX a little, and there is a “robots in pop-culture” quiz. Continue reading →
Being the wise and courageour podcasters that we are, we feel strongth welling in our bodies. This feeling can only mean one thing: it’s time to talk about Ghosts ‘n Goblins, the 1986 Capcom platformer for the NES. We also talk about difficult games in general, QTPi “mearch”, sexual miscommunications, and Dave administers a “Ghosts or Goblins” quiz. Continue reading →
