We here at TADPOG love a good SNES JRPG. Huge fans. So when the Randomizer belched forth an RPG, we were excited. And then we played said RPG, Tecmo Secret of the Stars. We couldn’t tackle a game like this without Captain Gun Nerd Jon Turley. So we have some Corona virus chat, give an update on life, drink many drinks, and touch ever so slightly on this game. 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).
And on that day, Tyler and Dave began their long journey through the entire remainder of the SNES Library. How many companions would they discover along the way? How many forgotten treasures? How many tangents about their junk would lead them astray? Only time will tell. Join them today on the journey of 714 steps with The 7th Saga. But only if you have the strength of Ron Perlman, the dexterity of Ron Perlman, and the broadness of chin of, well, Ron Perlman.

With the Call of Cthulhu Actual Play finished, we decided to sit down and discuss the game. We ask questions like: What did the investigators miss? How else could the story have ended? Why didn’t Alex “Chili Dog” Peterson just uppercut Cthulhu? Joining the discussion is the sweetest pair of sweethearts you’ve ever met: Josh and Nicole (aka investigators Brock and Donna). Tyler explains the motivations and inspirations behind this game and Josh clarifies what he meant by “that ending sucks”. Continue reading →

Will Donna, Brock and Chili Dog successfully thwart Lafitte and stop the coming of Cthulhu? Or will the bones of the investigators find a new residence beneath the New York City docks?

The date is August 9, 1977. Short of options, the investigators have recruited the help of CIA agent Mr. Zeus, who is also a member of the Knights Templar. The Knights have been working against cult leader Jean Lafitte for hundreds of years and were able to help the investigators locate Lafitte’s personal holdings in New York City: the Astor Hotel and several properties at the harbor.
