Ep. 573 – Phantasmagoria

Okay, we will be honest. Jim Power on the SNES is pretty bad. We WILL get to it but Phantasmagoria had a bounty on it and Dave had a great time streaming it, SO HERE IT IS. Tyler and Dave talk about books, gaming, and a very British slang quiz with very Americanized British accents and go on in depth about how good Cockney Naruto would be. We do a deep dive into the FMV wonder of it’s time that is Phantasmagoria.

Ep. 463 – Duke Nukem 3D

Duke Nukem 3D

Come get some! This week we’re talking about Duke Nukem 3D, the 1996 first-person shooter by 3D Realms. Does it hold up? Tyler issues an apology to Exalted Lord Mike of Perdue. We talk about War on Infinite Daves. We take a voicemail. Dave issues a Duke Nuke 3D Pop Culture Quiz and Tyler does about as well as you would except. Come listen and chew bubble gum…but don’t bring any gum.

Ep. 456 – Final Fantasy XI (Part 2)

Final Fantasy XI

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.

Ep. 455 – Final Fantasy XI

Final Fantasy XI

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.

Ep. 454 – Abobo’s Big Adventure

Abobo's Big Adventure

This week we channel our rage in the form of rippling muscle and talk about Abobo’s Big Adventure between bouts of uncontrollable “fury shrieks”. Ah, now that’s what I call podcasting! We can’t help but make comparisons to Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. We also open a mysterious package from a mysterious listener.

Ep. 420 – Crypt of the NecroDancer

Crypt of the NecroDancer

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).  Continue reading

Ep. 394 – River City Ransom: Underground

River City Ransom: Underground

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

Ep. 393 – Ultima Online

Ultima Online

We’re joined by TADPOG Sweetheart Josh and Wizened Sage Ian to talk about Ultima Online, the 1997 MMO by Origin Systems. Things get hot and sweaty as we try a bunch of hot sauces sent to us by Faceful of Alien Wing Wong. Burger Bottom Jon gets a new title (sorry Jon). Dave becomes intoxicated by memories of virtual murder. Who knew four sweaty adult men crammed into a blanket fort could have this much fun? Continue reading
