The time has come, after all that edge talk we have arrived at Indiana Jones’ Greatest Adventures. This SNES game covered all three movies of the original trilogy, so to fully understand everything that goes into this game – we had to watch all the movies and talk about them at length THEN roll into deep game talk over all the levels for three movies. There is plenty of movie talk and plenty of game talk on this one. So much so that we don’t get to all our normal segments. So if you like Indiana Jones then this is absolutely the episode for you. Sit awhile and listen! Indiana Jones; Greatest Adventures!
Indiana Jones Edgefest was really the best title for this episode. Tyler had some schedule conflicts and caused the show to need to be shuffled around, which messed with planning the Scott Pilgrim game, which messed with what we were doing for the week, which messed with planning out play time – so this is one of those good old therapy episodes where we chat (this time we chat a lot about Indiana Jones since we will be headed into a big Indiana Jones SNES/Movie episode next week), we take some calls and have a “relaxed fit” time. So we hope you enjoy just time chatting around time so we can get our ducks in a row next week!
Waterworld SNES style! Did you love the 1994 Kevin Cosner movie about a world covered in water? YOU DID? Oh, you didn’t? Sorry, my ears are water logged. In a rare return to a game episode, Half of TADPOG Sweethearts, Nicole joins us to speak quite a bit about the movie Waterworld (you can’t talk about this game without understanding what in the world they are trying to replicate) and then the boys do a deep dive into this game. We talk special corduroy hates, games we have spent the most time on, Ian’s favorite brand of reusable water bottles, and we take a few special calls. Come sit awhile and listen! Waterworld SNES!
The Meat in a Marion Sandwich vs. The World! After a few weeks off, our Scott Pilgrim inspired 5e D&D tabletop returns in form! The band gets gathers their wits after almost losing their lives to a giant feral cat straight out of the 1970’s Bob Noble Park. The try to figure out what this “blight” stuff might be. Lem makes sure to grab a box of memory VHS tapes to watch. Kenny finds a special Pee Wee’s playhouse way to talk to his spectral mom. Spekkio answers some questions that turn right around and beg more questions. Aurora has some theories. And we close out on a pretty pretty pretty good story where Dave meets IRL Game Kevin Link. So please come check out The Meat in a Marion Sandwich vs. The World!
The Meat in a Marion Sandwich vs. The World – Session Fourteen Shownotes:
Final Fantasy VI (World of Ruin) has finally come to pass. Does this episode sound a little different? Well, that may be because we are all wearing masks just to be safe from Ian’s brush with COVID but we still recorded an episode! Courtesy of the Randomizer, we decided to re-record out early episodes where we covered this game for IGN’s Top 100 SNES game. We discussed it over two episodes so we changed it up with our new formula into two again – this time with the World of Balance and the World of Ruin (essentially the front and back halves of the game). So now we get to break down the VERY different half of the game, but just as beloved as the World of Balance. Tyler and Dave break down the game while Ian acts more as an audience surrogate asking some important questions. We have our hearts in this one, so we hope you enjoy.
Rival Turf! We have finally arrived at the last (it’s the first chronologically but the last for us to do) in the Rushing Beat Series. Thanks to Nintendo bringing literally anything Jaleco makes, at whatever discount the license comes at, to the Nintendo Switch Online platform. We have to talk about the movie Prey and many things about the Predator movies. Ian continues with journey into the dark realm of anime, Dave gives us a look into the WB Multiverse game, and Tyler discusses his streaming. And we talk quite a bit about Rival Turf!, what we think about it, and how is compares to the games it tries to emulate. So why not come sit awhile and listen to three old guys talk about an old game. Rival Turf!
Congo’s Caper! Now ya’ll, this is certainly a chonker of an episode, mainly due to one factor – the reunion of TADPOG I.T. with Jon Turley! We talk about Ian’s new obsessions, anime and simulated power washing. We talk about some new television, new game releases, a few new movies and probably too deep of a dive into Congo’s Caper. How does this compare to Joe & Mac? What’s it’s relation to that game? Come sit awhile, listen, and find out. You can have a little Congo’s Caper as a treat.
(I Kinda Like) Sneezing on Cat Butts vs. The World – Session Thirteen. D&D Actual Play. Has come again! Do you like that art? Dave felt inspired by the many events that lead up to the encounters that would conjure up such an image. On this session, the band goes up against whatever it was that laughed at them in subspace and blew all the non band members out of subspace (Oh whatever could it be?) Abigail confronts Ignatius on information about the Glow. Lem tries his hand at actually removing the Glow from someone. This is a more action packed episode that maybe ever before, so come sit awhile and listen! (I Kinda Like) Sneezing on Cat Butts vs. The World – Session Thirteen. D&D Actual Play. Has come again! Do you like that art?
