Okay! Maybe you were expecting to hear an episode on Vegas Stakes for the Super Nintendo. That’s a legitimate expectation because on our last episode we stated that we would in-fact be covering Vegas Stakes. Welp. Due to some serious circumstances we were not able to make that happen, but we will get to it…eventually. In the meantime, please enjoy this Patreon bonus episode on Super Mario Odyssey that we released last year.
WARNING: This episode starts out with some siiiiick references to the following TV shows: Friends, 30 Rock, Parks and Rec, and The Office. We also talk about Super Mario Odyssey for the Nintendo Switch by request of Tyler (of TADPOG fame). We end up talking about Mario in a broader sense and talk generally about 3D platformers as a genre. We end by playing some listener voicemail. (Also, Tyler announces his new career as a Super Punch-Out!! speed runner.)
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.
Get your holes ready! One-half of TADPOG Sweethearts, Josh Nance, joins the podcast to talk about Donut County, the 2018 indie game by Ben Esposito. Tyler is out this week, so this is a JADPIG episode (Josh and Dave Play Indie Games, duh). While unsupervised, Dave and Josh found a Funky Kong religion and talk about cat murder on a local scale!
Happy (day after) New Year! Now that we have severely dated yet another episode—Chocto (you know him from YouTube) joins us on this one to talk about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch. Yes, we realize this game is less than a month old. It hardly qualifies as an “old game” but we do our best to shoehorn retro gaming references in (okay, maybe not our best). We focus on the Adventure Mode a lot but we also talk about the game in a broader sense, and we end up talking about previous Smash Bros. games as well. Of course we talk about our mains and speculate on DLC fighters. During the middle of the show a strange package from Link makes an appearance. We wrap things up by tackling a Smash Quiz that was sent in by Quiz Master Bovine Bear Matt.
Hey! We got review copies of Cosmic Star Heroine for the Nintendo Switch courtesy of Zeboyd Games. So we bring on our hardcore heroine expert Saint Zach. We open some packages. WE DO A MOSTLY SPOILER FREE REVIEW of this game, we only flub up on a few very minor points. Bovine Bear Quizmaster Matt gives us a Heroine Quiz and Zach treats you to his bird story for a stinger. ENJOY! Continue reading →
Welcome to TADPNG, otherwise known as “Tyler and Dave’s Portable Network Graphics”—an audio program where hosts Tyler and Dave view .png files and describe them to each other in painstaking detail. Just kidding, it’s Tyler and Dave Play NEW Games! Get it? Okay, now that we’re all on the same page—the game that we discuss in this episode is Mega Man 11. Sure, the game just came out, but c’mon, it’s like Retro Nouveau™. Continue reading →
