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?
Dragon’s Lair! Did you see the art and episode announcement and got excited? WELL DIAL IT BACK! WE AREN’T TALKING ABOUT THE GOOD ONE! We dive into the SNES port – and what a doozy. Tyler and Dave do talk about the works of Don Bluth, smells we think everyone needs to smell, and bring up the beauty of a twerking Sonic. Enjoy!
Tyler’s back, baby! …and we’re talking about Caveman Games, the 1990 port of Caveman Ughlympics for the NES. We bring on leading TADPOG Nation anthropologist, Edgelord Kyle to talk about this historically authentic “sports video game”. We wrap things up by listening to some voicemails.
Karnov! Since we fought him in Bad Dudes we just had to play his very own game. For this special episode we bring on entirely new guest host Chris Black! We open a package, we take a quiz, we talk Karnov and oddly enough we get real.
Do you love the 2000s? Do you love Jerry Seinfeld? Then don’t worry your head because there is plenty of talk about the smash 2007 hit Bee Movie! We also take a small tangent to bring on Drew and Bailey Rowland of Hops and Heroes fame to discuss the Data East game Bad Dudes. We also settle the argument between spaghetti and maple syrup, create a billion dollar underwear idea and take the baddest quiz courtesy of Bovine Bear Matt Cowan.
It’s an even more special Monday, TADPOG Nation, as we get a new series underway. We just love Ready Player One so much and it resonated with our show so strongly that we’re going to play through the games that are often mentioned in the book. Don’t worry, its spoiler free until we’ve played through the games and then we’ll do a super spoiler heavy episode just about the book. Since she loves Wil Wheaton so much we just had to have Nikki Moore on the show for this one. She was very good at Heavy Barrel too. We talk about when boys are at their sexiest, how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would rap and a little bit about Heavy Barrel.
Do you like episodes where we do a lot of tangents and banter and don’t get super deep into every detail of the game? BOY DO WE HAVE AN EPISODE FOR YOU. We get wrist deep into the NES port of the classic Burger Time but in our defense that pool is really only about wrist deep.
