Well, here is our 2nd part of Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. Spoilers, only one person on the podcast enjoyed it so we discussed it and went off the rails for some good old fashioned tangents. It was just the perfect way to spend time with #moremiller Shawn Miller and, for the first time on a main feed episode, Casey of Quincy of Piggy Palace fame! Please, come sit awhile and listen.
For well over a year, we saw the cries of those dozens who listen to this podcast. “#moremiller!”, they cried! Well, he is our foremost Final Fantasy II/IV-ologist, so here he is for Final Fantasy IV: The After Years. The After Years is a pretty lengthy game, so we are bringing back the ol’ two-part TADPOG. We each played a different version of the game (Wii, PSP, and Steam), so we all have a different take on it. Come hang out!
The Randomizer is back, baby! (And it brought veteran guest host Miller with him #MoreMiller). What SNES game did The Randomizer bestow upon us today, you ask? Why, none other than Super Strike Eagle, the 1993 combat flight simulator for the SNES. If discussion about lackluster video game visuals and kludgy controls aren’t enough: we also talk about Tyler’s recent vasectomy! <insert reggaeton horn sfx>. And Miller tells us how to wreck a vintage golf cart. This episode brought to you by Norco.
You know we had to do an Electric Boogaloo for FFXI! So Miller is back with for more Final Fantasy XI talk. Dave’s Old Wendy’s Nemesis rears his head once again. Tyler returns from Disney World having learned more of life’s lessons. Drew from For the Love of Indie gives us a very nice package. Incredibly Tough Trousers Monster (It’ll make sense after you listen). If you liked the break down from last episode of FFXI, then you’ll definitely enjoy us finishing up this two part episode.

Put your party flag up because this week we are talking about Final Fantasy XI, the 2002 MMORPG by Square. We have wanted to do an episode on this game for a long time and we are joined by our resident MMOlogist, Shawn Miller of #MoreMiller fame. All three of us played Final Fantasy XI at its height and in this episode we barely scratch the surface of this immense game, but we do have a lot of fun reminiscing about our time spent in Vana’diel. We open a new package full of treats from listeners Bunny and Kira. We tell stories about our gross early apartments. Dave contributes to the stray cat population epidemic. And perhaps most notable for TADPOG Lore Masters, He Who Shall Not Be Named…is named. We had so much fun recording this one that we would like to continue it some day; we hope you enjoy.

We set our chronometers to Oct. 21, 2015 and talk about Back to the Future for the NES with Miller (of #moremiller fame). We also leisurely sip on weird sodas from a weird store in Western Kentucky, corrupt our virtue and innocence with the Balls of Dorian Gray and answer a very special Would You Rather from Exalted Lord Mike of Perdue.
Advergames. Everyone loves them, TADPOG Nation. We even had a special request by Shawn Miller to do Cool Spot so he could guest host. What Miller wants, Miller gets so this week we have brought you that 7-Up classic. We also start out talking about dogs then our exception prowess with the opposite sex. Then we glow about Cool Spot and take a few calls. If you like sad stories about animals and goofs about soda then this just might be your perfect episode.
The conclusion of our Ready Player One Series finally ends today when we discuss the actual book, Ready Player One. We knew two other people that also read (or rather listened) to the book, Shawn Miller of #moremiller fame and Nikki Moore of Wil Wheaton adoration fame enter the fray. We talk a lot of the consequences of alcohol consumption as well as the pop culture fest that is this book. Let us know if you like us doing this kind of thing.
