The Karate Kid kicks through the nostalgia wall directly in TADPOG studio. We all watched, or re-watched, the original so we could get into the proper mindset to play and review this NES game. So we talk plenty about the ins and outs of the movie (and dip our toe into the rest of the series) before we get started grinding down into the nitty gritty of the game. We do a draft. We talk a few movies but we really do spend a lot of time on the subject matter. So please sit awhile and listen!
Top Gun flies into TADPOG studios! Does it safely land to proper fanfare? Or does it do a nosedive into the water right before the carrier like 99% of all landing attempts the general population did attempting to play this game? We discuss The Boys, Fargo, Final Fantasy VI, and even do a particular draft of insufferable jerks (we do use different verbiage though). So come here us do a deep dive into Top Gun, the movie, Top Gun: Maverick, and both the NES games – Top Gun and Top Gun: The Second Mission. So come, please sit awhile and listen.
Drac’s Night Out is here and we are PUMPED! Get it? Because the game is sponsored by Reebok Pumps. Because Dracula needs those. But really, he does in this game. He’s like a reverse vampire where touching people kills him. We know this one sounds a little different (we do address is right away) but Tyler has finally succumb to COVID and needed to record remotely. We didn’t want to miss another week of telling you guys about Drac’s Night Out. So we do a Vampire draft, talk about vampires, and finally do a deep dive into this unreleased NES game game. So please just sit awhile and listen to Drac’s Night Out.
Dirty Harry asks us just how lucky we feeling playing his NES game this week on TADPOG. This week may not get us any closer to finishing our SNES list but it’s a good continuation of our “R Rated Moves turned into video games” series. Yes, it’s another series. We love them. Get used to it. Everything is a series. But before we do a deep dive into the first Dirty Harry movie and the NES game – we talk Overwatch 2. Ian has a particularly good match. We briefly visit The Horror Hole, discuss the latest offerings of Eddie Murphy, hit up The Dark Tower, and do a little Christmas themed draft. So please, come get dirty with us. Dirty Harry. If you feel lucky. Punk.
Double Dragon III: The Sacred Stones had to be done. The final NES Saga featuring Bimmy and Jimmy is now under TADPOG’s belt. We will get back to the Scott Pilgrim Inspired 5e D&D game next week but for now we talk about Thor, JoJo, horror movies, and a deep dive into the not so successful Double Dragon III: The Sacred Stones. Come listen to us open a fan package, take some calls, and much more!
Mega Man 3! It has been a long time since we did something from the NES, and this is good one to go back to and talk about. We’re very happy it was the TADPOG retro game of the month on the Discord! We talk about the many albums of Pink Floyd, Troma, how much Dave loves the Oculus 2, how good the Peacekeeper and Titan TV shows are, and we break down all the bosses, weapons, tactics and the pure fun we had with this game. If you like this game and want to hear us gush about it – come sit awhile and listen.
Tyler’s back, baby! …and we’re talking about Caveman Games, the 1990 port of Caveman Ughlympics for the NES. We bring on leading TADPOG Nation anthropologist, Edgelord Kyle to talk about this historically authentic “sports video game”. We wrap things up by listening to some voicemails.
Karnov! Since we fought him in Bad Dudes we just had to play his very own game. For this special episode we bring on entirely new guest host Chris Black! We open a package, we take a quiz, we talk Karnov and oddly enough we get real.
