Sea of Stars has finally arrived! It hasn’t been out long and we have had several requests already to talk about it so here we are! Don’t worry, this one is spoiler free. All three of us took the dive into this game and discuss it’s mechanics and layout in this episode, we wanted it to be spoiler free so nothing about the story is brought up – if you haven’t played yet, feel free to listen! We do something a little bit different that our normal draft, we go back into Ian’s Horror Hole, the latest anime is brought up and then we finish it all up with some Sea of Stars content. There may be more, but we definitely all want to play more! So please, sit awhile and listen.
After so many references, so many mini discussions, and so much hype—we now bring you the goods and discuss one of our favorite new games, Hades! We needed to bring a strong show for such a strong game so we brought back Coco of CocoConfession and Cuphead fame to join us in our deep dive. Our love for this game is palpable so we stray from our standard formula for this episode and just have a solid discussion amongst friends about a game we love. Come hang out and we hope you like it!
It’s a bug hunt. Jacob York (of wolf fighting fame), joins Dave on this episode to discuss Into the Breach, the turn-based strategy game by Subset Games. Outside of game discussion, there are many references to the Funky Kong religion which was founded on last week’s episode. We also talk about Toad’s anatomy a little bit, and of course we make plans to purchase GamePro.
Eventually has come again, TADPOG Nation. On this glorious Monday we take on the Five Star Review request of Lord Mike of Purdue with the indie game LIMBO. This might be an odd one because we run the gamut with stories and ideas about the game. You want semi serious religious talk about Purgatory, Hell and various denominations? We’ve got that covered. Our resident expert on Kirby and Horror, Nicole Nance joins us to talk about the game, discuss religion and take some calls.
TADPOG Nation, our dear friend Jacob, of Wolf Fighting Fame (actually Final Fight, X-Men, Populous, Bioshock, Fatal Fury 2, NHL 94, Gone Home, Interview, Metal Warriors and Act Raiser fame) has come back into town and we love him so much we try to get him in some episodes he wants to talk about. So by his request we’re talking about Bastion. We can’t pretend we’re not going to talk about how much we love this game but we also talk about telling stories as kids, how to act normal and we take a call that really messes with Jacob.
MONDAY. TADPOG. GAMES THAT ARE NOT ON IGN’S TOP 100 SNES GAMES. This week, my favorite TADPOG Nation, we’re breaking the very broly game of Broforce. We’ll just be talking about bros. Just games and bros. You take the games, you take the bros and have good time. One of our dearest bros, Josh Nance (of Uniracer’s fame), joins us for this one. We talk about our mothers and any possible anger issues they might have, a discussion and Kickstarter and early buy in games, and even take some calls from other TADPOG bros. You might enjoy it. You might not. We hope you do, bro.
