King of Dragons! The Randomizer won’t let you down, even when COVID and work related events will! We had to postpone the newest episode of The Scott Pilgrim game so we fell back on what the Randomizer chose after Tecmo Super Bowl – King of Dragons. It’s more medieval madness in the vein as Knights of the Round and Golden Axe. We do a deep dive as we all actually played this game together (Thank you, Nintendo Switch Online). But before that we talk about Death Note, how not to run a pizza place, and we take a fun psychological quiz – make sure to grab a pencil and paper so you can play along, it’s fun. Stop rolling your eyes, Dane. It’s fun. You’ll see.
Mega Man 3! It has been a long time since we did something from the NES, and this is good one to go back to and talk about. We’re very happy it was the TADPOG retro game of the month on the Discord! We talk about the many albums of Pink Floyd, Troma, how much Dave loves the Oculus 2, how good the Peacekeeper and Titan TV shows are, and we break down all the bosses, weapons, tactics and the pure fun we had with this game. If you like this game and want to hear us gush about it – come sit awhile and listen.
This episode concludes the Final Fight series on the SNES! We take the power back from the Randomizer and do Final Fight 3 and Final Fight Guy to bring a beloved series to a close. I might say this show is 40% tangents, 50% Final Fight 3, 9% Quizzes, and a whopping 1% Final Fight Guy because that is literally all it deserves. We open an AMAZING package, go over a game that really surprised us, and a go over a game that did not. We think Alex Pena will give this episode a heart on Facebook so come check it out!
Pretty good hand we got dealt by the Randomizer this week with Knights of the Round. It even scooped us up Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins and J Jonah Jetplane Jonathan Wilson (though being on the other side of the world precluded his attendance). We talk hacked reddit accounts, eating in bed, Cadillacs & Dinosaurs, and a little about a talking mongoose – along with a decent dive in Knights of the Round. Enjoy!
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.
