Tyler and Dave love fighting games. Especially Dave. So the Randomizer went full Monkey’s Paw with giving us Power Moves, a clone of a clone of a clone of Street Fighter II. But don’t worry – we also have some hot takes on Jared from Subway and clear up out stance on the edgiest of issues.
Hi everyone! Do you like Street Fighter? Me too! What about sculptures? ME TOO! How about the 90s? YES! Do you know what you get when you smash together those elements in the vaguest way possible? CLAYFIGHTER! Do you remember loving it? Come with us and take off those nostalgia glasses and give it another go!
Do you LOVE Conan the Barbarian? Do you love him so much you’ll consume anything vaguely resembling him, including media that stole his imagine just to capitalize on his popularity? Do you LOVE poorly designed fighting games released far after any time that it could have been relevant? No? Good, because no one does. But theoretically if such an audience existed then WE TOTALLY HAVE A GAME FOR YOU! BATTLE BLAZE! Don’t worry – not only do we do a deep dive into this ridiculousness, we also discuss odd fetishes and Richard Dawson. So come on down and enjoy our misery.
From the numerical ether, our withering god of randomness doth bequeath this game – King of the Monsters 2! So, it’s a game. We played it. We beat it. We talk about it. A little dash of DragonCon, a pinch of a package from Chris Murray, and gallon of 1 call full of Harrison Ford accusations from Terrified Michelle! So please come eat this monster of a TADPOG cake with us. The cake is also decorated with Minions per the request of a TADPOG Sweetheart, Nicole.
Dattebayo! We’re taking a short break from the NES Classic games to talk about one of Dave’s favorite games. Captain Gun Nerd Jon Turley joins us to talk about Naruto: Gekito Ninja Taisen! 4 (aka Naruto Gecko Ninja Mike Tyson), the 2005 GameCube fighting game by Tomy. In addition to talking about the game: we talk about the Naruto anime, we all decide which sitcom couple best parallels our individual relationships with our significant others, and we talk about Star Trek quite a bit. There is a super difficult Naruto quiz! Continue reading →
So, here it is. The “missing” episode where we talk about Sesame Street Fighter by flavourmachine. We recorded this bad boy back in January and it’s finally seeing the light of day. Why the delay? Well. The audio sucks (Internal Mike strikes again). But hey, if you like your podcast episodes extra grungy and “underground” then you might appreciate the audio quality (or lack thereof) of this episode. Naturally we talk about the game but we also talk about butt shelves. Butt shelves. Continue reading →
This is a game-heavy episode, which we guess is okay because it’s “technically” a “video game podcast”. Anyway, we’re talking about Samurai Shodown, the second-ranked game on Digital Trends’ list of 25 Best Sega Genesis games. Do not worry, we also talk about tee-ball. Continue reading →
Because absolutely no one asked for it…we’re talking about Ballz on this episode of the podcast! That’s right, Ballz — the 1994 fighting game for the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis developed by PF Magic. Spoilers: We didn’t like it much! We take breaks from administering smackies long enough to discuss Dead Souls and Yetis, talk about some Netflix shows, and answer some listener voicemail too. Continue reading →
