Pocky & Rocky! Just a short 575 episodes after we covered the sequel we’re back to talk about the original. Of course we had to bring on our foremost Pocky & Rockiologist: CHOCTOPUS (y’know from YouTube)! We talk about anime movies, Goosebumps books, expensive chairs, SNES Randomizers, Ready Player One, and plenty more. We do get pretty deep into the game so if you enjoyed it, or want to know more about it then just come sit awhile and listen!
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.
Hey, look what the Randomizer threw at us! Paladin’s Quest! I see castles in the box art and Paladin is in the title so it must be a classic medieval RPG. No? It’s a futuristic space game that never once contains the word “Paladin”? Well, from that you probably know exactly what you’re in for with this episode. Don’t worry, we bring on TADPOG IT, Captain Gun Nerd Jon and Wizened Sage Ian. You know it will be a very good hang out and chat type episode with some touches of Paladin’s Quest. Come enjoy!
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!
The gift from the Randomizer this week is, the fantastic alluring title of SOS / Septentrion (if you had it overseas). It could have used a much better title but we will get to that later. We try some Easter snacks, talk about cats and how to rank them compared to other cats that we have had and lots of other stuff. This game is based on a movie that is based on a book, so we talk The Poseidon Adventures that Dave watched to prepare. We had a good time with some serious opinions on this game, come check it out!
The Super Aquatic Games Starring the Aquabats! Now that’s quite the title. Did you think it was about the band, The Aquabats? Nope, it’s not. Did you think it was about water sports? Are you some sort of incredible clairvoyant who suspected this was actually one of James Pond’s games and it was a spoof of the Olympics but didn’t actually contain any water games just aquatic characters doing the same few games over and over on land and for some reason James Pond isn’t a spy but is supposed to be a FISH WITH LEGS? THEN YOU MUST SURELY BE THE CHOSEN OF THE RANDOMIZER. With a game like this, we have to bring on Casey of Piggy Palace fame to make it interesting. And we think it is. Come on and join us.
Super Aquatic Games Starring the Aquabats Shownotes:
Lan Parties. Tamagotchis. Game Boys. That “S” thing we used to all draw. AOL. Ecto Cooler. All these things symbolize a childhood in the 90s but none of them nearly as much as Radical Rex! He’s a real cool Radical Rex! Is this a very cool hidden gem on the SNES or is it a oversized and slow but very pretty platformer? COME FIND OUT (unless you go as restingtwitch_face and you MIGHT know. YOU MIGHT.) So come hear us talk about Percy Jackson, Tyler’s Percy Jackson game, how to make the best tacos al pastor, the best Taco Bell food, how addicting potato oles are, and what we’ve been playing. Come check it out!
The Jungle Book has a LOT of iterations. Poems, books, movies, songs, live action movies, animated movies….and a Super Nintendo game. A 90s Disney platformer that wasn’t on IGN’s Top 100? Whatever could that mean about its quality? We get to that after we really drill down into the history of how many versions of it are out there. We also talk middle school stories and what was important to us in elementary school. Come hear all about our bear necessities.
