Waterworld SNES style! Did you love the 1994 Kevin Cosner movie about a world covered in water? YOU DID? Oh, you didn’t? Sorry, my ears are water logged. In a rare return to a game episode, Half of TADPOG Sweethearts, Nicole joins us to speak quite a bit about the movie Waterworld (you can’t talk about this game without understanding what in the world they are trying to replicate) and then the boys do a deep dive into this game. We talk special corduroy hates, games we have spent the most time on, Ian’s favorite brand of reusable water bottles, and we take a few special calls. Come sit awhile and listen! Waterworld SNES!
Congo’s Caper! Now ya’ll, this is certainly a chonker of an episode, mainly due to one factor – the reunion of TADPOG I.T. with Jon Turley! We talk about Ian’s new obsessions, anime and simulated power washing. We talk about some new television, new game releases, a few new movies and probably too deep of a dive into Congo’s Caper. How does this compare to Joe & Mac? What’s it’s relation to that game? Come sit awhile, listen, and find out. You can have a little Congo’s Caper as a treat.
Plok! At long last we took The Randomizer hostage so we could force this game into our library. You know, since The Randomizer really tried to give us multiple sports games in a row. So we talk about Ian’s curious dental condition, many things Star Wars and Marvel, the amazing 2019 show Chernobyl, Bioshock 2 DLC Minerva’s Den, Dave’s latest anime venture, and of course – so much Plok. There was quite a bit to go into about this lesser know game (I’m blaming you, Rayman). So please sit awhile and listen to the retro video game opinions of three old cis white men. I’m sure that is very hard to find in podcast form.
DinoCity – do you say it like Dino-City or all together like Dinocity? Well, we have to tackle that first. So we restructure things a little bit so that our flow may be a little different for this episode. We have to start off with weird stories from our local mall, how we were afraid of ethnic foods as children, how Ian will track down some 40 year old fans for the TADPOG Hollanddeck – then a new structured dive into DinoCity. Some come sit awhile and listen.
Jelly Boy. That’s right, not Jerry Boy. It’s not Smart Ball. Nor is it Jelly Boy 2 (which is a completely different game with a different developer and publisher. The original game finally brought over to our shores as the most recent batch of Nintendo Switch Online games. Well, it is certainly something with some things to talk about – so we have to talk about
Hey! Do you like Super Nintendo? Probably. Do you like Nintendo Switch Online? Again, Probably. Otherwise you may not be here. Did you know they released some SNES games this week on Nintendo Switch Online and they are right up our alley? Well, I lie. Not really up our alley. Anyway, CLAYMATES! It came out this week to the fanfare of…a dozen? So we talk about it! Did you like Clayfighter? You probably like Wizened Sage Ian, he is on this episode! We talk about Claymates.
Little Nicky for the Game Boy Color! You know that’s freakin sweet. Or not. Maybe it is? Come listen and find out. I’m sure everyone has seen this 21 year old movie so this will be a very listened to episode. We had to bring on our foremost Adam Sandlerologists in TADPOG I.T., Ian and Jon! All of us talk intro stories, circuses, taking acid, talk about Adam Sandler’s ENTIRE FILMOGRAPHY, NOT JUST LITTLE NICKY. We talk about this game, the movie, all the movies and all the things. This one is a long boi that we suffered in the heat to bring to you, enjoy!
Super Turrican! Only 609 episodes after we did Super Turrican 2 as the 91st game on IGN’s Top 100 SNES games. Long time listeners will recall the pure vitriol that Dave felt for Super Turrican 2. So how does he feel about this one? How does Tyler feel about the size of the sprites in this game?
