TADPOG’s Favorite Videogame Characters of All-Time.
Well, one of us was finally bitten by the pandemic zombie. Because of this, we bring you REMOTE SHOW SHENANIGANS! We didn’t really have the time or energy because of COVID to dig into the Tecmo series that we had previously drawn from the Randomizer. So Dave had a great idea where we each decide on our top 5 favorite video game characters, compare and discuss them. It turned out to be an even better episode than we expected, so please come and enjoy! TADPOG’s Favorite Videogame Characters of All-Time turned out to be very different for all of each of us expected the others to have. Who do you think each of us would have for our Top 5?
Tetris 2. Did you know there was a Tetris 2? If you’re like use and didn’t there may be a pretty good reason for that. Also, this episode goes from damp to danger zone over the course of an hour and a half. We recorded this episode on the night of the tornado that destroyed part of our area. We didn’t take it too seriously until we had to take it seriously so this episode goes from chuckles, to Tetris 2 to..well…running out of the Hollanddeck as quickly as possible. So please tune in for a bit of a crazy episode.
What is the best game you can rent at Piggly Wiggly? That’s right, The Addams Family on the SNES. To truly cover this game we have to bring TADPOG IT back in force with Wizened Sage Ian and Captain Gun Nerd Jon. We discuss the great new social media platform, Jonbook! Neighbors with impressive things, Patty Duke, The Anime version of Mr. Ed, The Munsters, all the different Addams Families, and do a real deep dive into this game. It may actually surprise you. So, please, come sit awhile and listen.
As we play through all of these SNES games, have you wondered if we would find a truly valuable hidden gem? Well, this is it. Wild Guns. Tyler, Dave, and Ian were all surprised by the quality of this game. So there is actually a lot of game talk but plenty of talk about horror games, dog tracking, Lost, Dexter, audio memes, and a great quiz.
Brawl Brothers! Just look at the art for the game. It’s supposed to two guys down the middle but just looks pretty terrible. Is this art better or worse than the game? Come find out! We talk about suffering from gout, lay heaps of praise upon the Post Papa John’s version of Papa John’s (this time with extra Shaq). We discuss taking care of your house, beef jerky, board games, the outrageous cost of pepperoncini peppers.
The Jungle Book has a LOT of iterations. Poems, books, movies, songs, live action movies, animated movies….and a Super Nintendo game. A 90s Disney platformer that wasn’t on IGN’s Top 100? Whatever could that mean about its quality? We get to that after we really drill down into the history of how many versions of it are out there. We also talk middle school stories and what was important to us in elementary school. Come hear all about our bear necessities.
The Randomizer ran out of MP last week since time after time after time it chose games we had already played — so we went rogue and decided to talk about some Super Scope games that randomly checked out a few months ago – Battle Clash and Metal Combat: Falcon’s Revenge. Let’s cut to the chase, these games are fantastic. So please join us while we talk games, take a quiz, persuade Melissa to briefly join us, and get very very hot.
Battle Clash and Metal Combat: Falcon’s Revenge Shownotes:
In 2020, do you know how to get Tyler and Dave together to beat a game for the show? You have a dark god of chance choose for them to play a Super Scope game. This week, courtesy of the Randomizer, we talk about Yoshi’s Safari. BUT NOT JUST YOSHI’S SAFARI. We also talk lush toys, take an opening AND a closing quiz, try some Pringles, discuss the different kinds of spider and how they play into fetishes. Come check us out!
