Hey! It’s racing! But not on cars or carts but dirt bikes! This week the Randomizer gives us Dirt Trax FX. Ever heard of Stunt Race FX? This is sort of like it but not horrible in every way. Tyler and Dave have a deep discussion of Freaky Eaters, Dave promises to finish Super Metroid, he just barely loses out on War of the Gems, and we talk racing on dirt bikes. We feel good about this one, come check it out!
“Do you like Street Fighter?” The Randomizer asked. “Of course.” we replied. “Super Mario Kart?” “Yes”. The Randomizer laughed and gave us Street Racer, a game that tried to be both and ended up being neither. Join us for tales of Halloween, googling stuff we want to remember, the best episode of Mary Tyler Moore, friending Hoarders, and love for Fraggle Rock. Enjoy!
Want to know what strange little game as a very interesting backstory? Want to hear isolation stories? Want to hear some guys take a quiz? WELL COME HEAR US TALK ABOUT MICRO MACHINES! And talk about work, children, child hood stories, and all sorts of things. Check it out!
“MERRY CHRISTMAS!” The Randomizer shouted! “On Garbage! On Difficulty! On Copy and Pasting! On Licensing Franchising! Now Cash Grabs! Now Lies and Attrition!” It was then Tyler and Dave heard a rustling and down the chimney came a true piece of coal -Saban’s Power Ranger’s Zeo Battle Racers, to both of their woe. “Well,” said Tyler. “We could bring on the Brit to balance out this dump of a show.” It was then Dave replied with a smile, his nose red from Baja Blasting this very long while, “TO ALL A ROUGH LISTEN TO THIS GAME WE SHOULD ALL PISS IN!”
Power Rangers Zeo: Battle Racers Podcast Shownotes:
Captain Gun Nerd Jon and Wizened Sage Ian join us this week to talk about Road Riot 4WD for the SNES. This game is short and terrible…so there’s not an overwhelming amount of game talk. (If we’re being honest here, we probably discuss Gran Turismo 3 more than Road Riot 4WD). But! We’ve got another episode of SODA JERKS (the only podcast within a podcast) on this episode! We also eat some sour candy that was sent in by Mastermold Mike. We take a quiz courtesy of Ross Rachel Green, and there’s plenty of Marvel and Doctor Who talk.
This week we’re talking about Excitebike, the 1985 NES racing game by Nintendo. That’s right. You could say we’re back on track (har-har) to play through the 30 games on the NES Classic. Don’t worry, we also come up with Fantastic Four employment parallels, we talk about the middle school overall craze, there’s a Bike Quiz, and we answer listener voicemail. Continue reading →
Do you think you can handle heart-pounding racing with speeds in excess of 20 whole miles per hour? Here at TADPOG, we feel the need…the need for speed. No. Wait. That’s a different video game series entirely. Let’s try again. Here at TADPOG, we feel the Kart…the Kart for Mario. Hm. Okay. That didn’t quite roll off the tongue. Anyway…on this episode, Nicole returns to TADPOG to help us talk about Mario Kart 64, which is ranked by Dorkly as the 6th best game for the Nintendo 64.
There is no B.J. and the Bear video game as far as we know. Which is a shame because we really had a hankering to play a video game based on a critically mediocre 1970s television show featuring a chimpanzee who can drive a big rig. We had to settle for what is probably the closest approximation: Diddy Kong Racing. Which is really convenient because Diddy Kong Racing takes the number 16 spot on Dorkly’s Top 25 N64 games, and that just happens to be the list we are playing through right now. Weird how things just work out that way sometimes. Enjoy this episode where we wish Wiley’s voicemail a happy birthday and other stuff happens. Also, Diddy Kong Racing.
