It has been over two years since we have recorded our last actual play of the Call of Cthulhu tabletop role-playing game. Rhythm Master Paul Corn, Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress, and Casey (we’ll probably come up with a great title for him at some point) join us to roll up some investigators for a campaign entitled Piggy Palace. It’s an original story by Tyler that takes place in the crime-ridden streets of 1981 Vancouver, British Columbia. We present to you Chapter One of this story. The rest of the chapters will be available on our Patreon page. Chapter Two and a bonus session of our character creation is available there now!
Call of Cthulhu (Actual Play) Podcast Shownotes:
Our character creation session and Chapter Two of Piggy Palace are both available on Patreon right now, if that’s your kind of thing.
Merry (day after) Christmas! Now that we have severely dated this episode—Rhythm Master Paul Corn and Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress Chandra join us on this one to talk about Doki Doki Literature Club by Dan Salvato. It’s a free visual novel released on Windows, Mac, and Linux. We don’t typically do this but…we’re going to show our hand here in the written post and say that this visual novel is very good and it is worth experiencing. We recommend you check it out before listening to the back half of this episode because we spoil it like a chihuahua in an expensive purse. The first forty minutes are filled with us goofing off, eating exotic “meat products” sent in by our friend Link, and playing a fun game called “Dumpster Treasure or Prized Possession” brought to us by Holy Dumpster Diver, so that’s all spoiler-free content. We wrap things up by responding to listener voicemails. Continue reading →
On this week’s episode, we are continuing our Valentine’s Day tradition by talking about a romantic game with Rhythm Master Paul and Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress Chandra. The romantic game being discussed? Why that would be the 2017 (that counts as “old” right?) visual novel Dream Daddy published by Game Grumps. But that’s not all! We also eat Bad Dog spicy jellies and there is a “TV Dads Quiz”. Continue reading →
REANIMATE! We’re taking a break from playing through the games on the NES Classic long enough to talk about Crypt of the NecroDancer with Rhythm Master Paul and Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress Chandra. NecroDancer is what it looks like when a rhythm game meets a roguelike dungeon crawler. Aside from game talk, we eat gross jellybeans; Chandra comes at us with some sweet sweet Garfield JOI; there are two (count ’em—two!) quizzes on this episode: a Wizard Quiz and a Necromancer Quiz; and there’s plenty of Dragon Ball talk (we legit discuss Piccolo’s wiener for like five minutes).

BARF! This week we’re talking about River City Ransom: Underground by Conatus Creative, the new follow-up to the 1989 NES cult-classic River City Ransom. Of course you remember that Blake joined us to talk about the original River City Ransom way back in 2015 (Episode 184 for those keeping score at home). Here at TADPOG we strongly believe in tradition as long as it’s cheap and convenient. So…good news, everyone (spoken in the best Professor Farnsworth impression we can muster)! We asked Oathbreaker Blake Woods to join us on this episode. Rhythm Master Paul Corn enters the fray as a new challenger who tells a poop story. Continue reading →
Well here we are, continuing our annual Valentine’s Day tradition of discussing an anime romance game with Rhythm Master Paul and Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress Chandra. This year we each tirelessly deliberated on what game to talk about. We journeyed across deserts, slogged through swamps and traversed via Tauntaun — all in search of the game with the perfect perversion. What game could possibly compete with Hatoful Boyfriend and HuniePop for igniting conversation? I’m not sure…but we selected Nekopara Vol.1. Continue reading →
Even more Blast Processing! Rhythm Master Paul Corn is back with us at TADPOG Blanket Fort to talk about our trip to Galloping Ghost Arcade and Round One Entertainment. We talk about playing classic arcade games and very Japanese arcade games. Don’t worry, Dave is still a Billy Mitchell apostle. We come up with a name for a children’s shooting range, we invent the “vore simulator” genre and we realize a D&D fighting game would be crazy good.
Rhythm Master Paul Corn joins us to talk about our very recent trip to the Arcade Video & Game Room Expo 2016 in Rosemont, Illinois. We eat some weeaboo candy, drink some Yoo-hoo and then go straight into a discussion about the convention. We talk about the arcade games that were there, Billy Mitchell, Walter Day, and Man vs Snake.
