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!
Football Fury! Yet another sports game brought to you by the Randomizer. Not just sports but football, you know, that thing Tyler and Dave know nothing about. The game is about what you’d expect based on the title and game art – so we brought on Jon and Ian of TADPOG I.T. fame! We do address just about everything we can on the game but also have plenty of fun tangents and real talk about pop tarts, a very specific deodorant, and Americanized fast food Mexican desserts. Sit awhile and listen.
We here at TADPOG love a good SNES JRPG. Huge fans. So when the Randomizer belched forth an RPG, we were excited. And then we played said RPG, Tecmo Secret of the Stars. We couldn’t tackle a game like this without Captain Gun Nerd Jon Turley. So we have some Corona virus chat, give an update on life, drink many drinks, and touch ever so slightly on this game. Enjoy!
Captain Gun Nerd Jon and Wizened Sage Ian join us this week to talk about Road Riot 4WD for the SNES. This game is short and terrible…so there’s not an overwhelming amount of game talk. (If we’re being honest here, we probably discuss Gran Turismo 3 more than Road Riot 4WD). But! We’ve got another episode of SODA JERKS (the only podcast within a podcast) on this episode! We also eat some sour candy that was sent in by Mastermold Mike. We take a quiz courtesy of Ross Rachel Green, and there’s plenty of Marvel and Doctor Who talk.
It’s our first episode in TADPOG Hexagon! We’re (kinda) talking about Pro Sport Hockey for the SNES, the 1993 hockey game developed by Tose and published by Jaleco. Captain Gun Nerd Jon and Wizened Sage Ian join us and help us take this episode deep into “Oops! All Intro Stories” territory. There’s more Green Ranger talk that carries over from last episode, a little MCU talk, and Jon finds out that he’s not Irish. So many tangents you’ll think you’re in Geometry class.
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 →
Burger Bottom Jon Turley returns (Jon, we’re gonna work on a new title for you, buddy)! And he’s here to play Audience Surrogate while we tell stories from the Louisville Arcade Expo (aka TADPOG Prom). There are tales from the go kart track! There are drunken tales of debauchery brought to you by Jägermeister! There’s a story about a field trip to the Pussycat Lounge! There’s even a little talk about the expo too! Continue reading →
We got the band back together for a 2016 Year In Review! We’ve got Jacob York (of wolf fighting fame), we’ve got Wizened Sage Ian “the hottest girl in the Annex” Chandler, and we’ve got Burger Bottom Jon Turley. Despite bragging about providing Jacob with his own microphone…he still sounds off-mic (not sure why!). So it’s a tradition now, we guess! We pore over some tasty data and talk about what happened in TADPOG Nation during the dumpster fire that was 2016. There’s a lot of Rogue One talk. A lot. There are barking dogs. And we read the best listener postcard we’ve yet to receive! Continue reading →
