Hi there. We here at TADPOG like to play games then sort of review them. This week we talk about Championship Pool. It’s, well, a pool simulator. Are you into that? Probably not. So hear me out, the game may not be your thing but we still bring the goofs. We talk about Castlevania. Share stories. We promise there is some good stuff in this one even though its about a pool simulator. JUST GIVE THE BOYS A CHANCE, WILL YOU?
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 lifted his head from his Donny Jeffcoat signed bat, uttering his final word of prayer to the Randomizer. “C…tic….Pl….er.” the Randomizer whispered. “What? Celtic Pliers? What do you wish of us, Randomizer?” Tyler screamed into the void. “Cine…ic….Plat…er.” the Randomizer replied. Strength growing in its voice. “You don’t mean? Please. No.” Tyler whimpered in the night. “CINEMATIC PLATFORMER! PRINCE OF PERSIA!” The Randomizer howled with malice! So this week Tyler and Dave tackled Prince of Persia for the SNES. But its not as bleak at the Randomizer likely intended it to be. We talk DOS, Aladdin, take a quiz and do some real talk about Prince of Persia. Enjoy!
“MERRY CHRISTMAS!” The Randomizer shouted! “On Garbage! On Difficulty! On Copy and Pasting! On Licensing Franchising! Now Cash Grabs! Now Lies and Attrition!” It was then Tyler and Dave heard a rustling and down the chimney came a true piece of coal -Saban’s Power Ranger’s Zeo Battle Racers, to both of their woe. “Well,” said Tyler. “We could bring on the Brit to balance out this dump of a show.” It was then Dave replied with a smile, his nose red from Baja Blasting this very long while, “TO ALL A ROUGH LISTEN TO THIS GAME WE SHOULD ALL PISS IN!”

We stood at the edge of the abyss, staring into the violent darkness and shouted, “WE LOVE SANDWICH POPE PHIL HAWKINS! YOU CANNOT HAVE HIM!” and the darkness whispered back, “Have him then.” So the Randomizer chose a Phil Hawkins game TWO WEEKS IN A ROW bringing us Ghoul Patrol this week! Have you heard of Ghoul Patrol? Probably not. Its the sequel to Zombies Ate My Neighbors, but you wouldn’t guess that from the title. We talk about Bois, Burger King, and Kid’s Cuisine – like always. But this time we all sprinkle in some Ghoul Patron chat. Enjoy!
From the darkest depths of the darkest night, the Randomizer chose for us play Dungeon Master, the 1992 port of a 1987 Atari ST dungeon crawler. It has some good history and some bad history. To do a proper study of this game we bring on Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins, as we do with all SNES dungeon crawlers. We talk about Melissa’s experience with the Country Music Awards, the glory of Herald Arthur’s battlecry of PINGAS, and our old stomping ground of Palace Chat. 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.

It has been over two years since we have recorded our last actual play of the Call of Cthulhu tabletop role-playing game. Rhythm Master Paul Corn, Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress, and Casey (we’ll probably come up with a great title for him at some point) join us to roll up some investigators for a campaign entitled Piggy Palace. It’s an original story by Tyler that takes place in the crime-ridden streets of 1981 Vancouver, British Columbia. We present to you Chapter One of this story. The rest of the chapters will be available on our Patreon page. Chapter Two and a bonus session of our character creation is available there now!

Our character creation session and Chapter Two of Piggy Palace are both available on Patreon right now, if that’s your kind of thing.
