Race Drivin’. Yes, that is the title of this SNES game. The pinnacle of creativity – RACE DRIVIN’! Oh boy, is this game everything we thought it would be based on the name alone. We do actually have some friends that are familiar with it so we bring on Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins and a special letter appearance by Pinball Archmage Chris Edler! Come hear us talk about vasectomies, rogue-likes, Hades, better threats to get your child to behave than Santa Claus, and we do the deepest dive possible into this terrible terrible game. Is it the worst SNES game? Join us and see what you think.
Pretty good hand we got dealt by the Randomizer this week with Knights of the Round. It even scooped us up Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins and J Jonah Jetplane Jonathan Wilson (though being on the other side of the world precluded his attendance). We talk hacked reddit accounts, eating in bed, Cadillacs & Dinosaurs, and a little about a talking mongoose – along with a decent dive in Knights of the Round. Enjoy!
We thought it was a taunt by the Randomizer at first, but it turns out there is an SNES game based on a movie by the same name “No Escape”. Well, apparently this movie was quite the flop but it was not without its fans. One of those fans is our beloved Sandwich Pope Phil, so we had to bring him on. We recount the movie, and the game but we really get into a deep discussion of Wild Hogs. Enjoy!
We stood at the edge of the abyss, staring into the violent darkness and shouted, “WE LOVE SANDWICH POPE PHIL HAWKINS! YOU CANNOT HAVE HIM!” and the darkness whispered back, “Have him then.” So the Randomizer chose a Phil Hawkins game TWO WEEKS IN A ROW bringing us Ghoul Patrol this week! Have you heard of Ghoul Patrol? Probably not. Its the sequel to Zombies Ate My Neighbors, but you wouldn’t guess that from the title. We talk about Bois, Burger King, and Kid’s Cuisine – like always. But this time we all sprinkle in some Ghoul Patron chat. Enjoy!
From the darkest depths of the darkest night, the Randomizer chose for us play Dungeon Master, the 1992 port of a 1987 Atari ST dungeon crawler. It has some good history and some bad history. To do a proper study of this game we bring on Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins, as we do with all SNES dungeon crawlers. We talk about Melissa’s experience with the Country Music Awards, the glory of Herald Arthur’s battlecry of PINGAS, and our old stomping ground of Palace Chat. Enjoy!
Has it been a long and difficult week for you? Do you need some podcast TLC? Don’t you worry, baby, we got you covered. We invite the Top Fan and Sandwich Pope of the TADPOG Nation, Phil Hawkins, on to discuss the Randomizer chosen Wizardry V. Don’t worry, Phil can’t keep us track all the time so we delve into more Soda Jerks, Circumcision Trinkets, Dungeons and Dragons, and we take a sweet little magic quiz from our very own Ross-Rachel Green. You’ve got 2 hours of love headed your way, we hope you enjoy!
Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins joins our adventuring party and lends us his extraordinary personality to talk about Might and Magic III: The Isles of Terra for the SNES. We have felt the magic and we are accepting the challenge to talk about this 1995 port of the classic DOS role-playing game. There’s a lot of game talk in this one, but there’s also bonus Audio Memes(TM).
We are joined by Sandwich Pope Phil Hawkins and Time Lord Josh Edwards to talk about TADPOG Nation’s expedition to Louisville Arcade Expo 2018 (aka TADPOG Prom). We open listener mail that was personally delivered to us at Prom, we talk about Jager Lunch, video game tournaments, go karts and angry hotel neighbors. Continue reading →
