Pocky & Rocky! Just a short 575 episodes after we covered the sequel we’re back to talk about the original. Of course we had to bring on our foremost Pocky & Rockiologist: CHOCTOPUS (y’know from YouTube)! We talk about anime movies, Goosebumps books, expensive chairs, SNES Randomizers, Ready Player One, and plenty more. We do get pretty deep into the game so if you enjoyed it, or want to know more about it then just come sit awhile and listen!
Jim Power: The Lost Dimension in 3-D has arrived! I know it’s been a long time coming and everyone has been on the edge of their seat to hear about this game…hey, it sucks. There, now that is out of the way come enjoy us talk about the Genesis, Night Trap, a little Borderlands 3, a touch of Rogue Legacy, and a quiz about the SNES Adventure games. Come hear us talk and huge amount of trash about this game and all the tangents.
The Randomizer ran out of MP last week since time after time after time it chose games we had already played — so we went rogue and decided to talk about some Super Scope games that randomly checked out a few months ago – Battle Clash and Metal Combat: Falcon’s Revenge. Let’s cut to the chase, these games are fantastic. So please join us while we talk games, take a quiz, persuade Melissa to briefly join us, and get very very hot.
Battle Clash and Metal Combat: Falcon’s Revenge Shownotes:
Not since Gradius has there been so much debate on how to properly pronounce the name of a video game here on TADPOG. So RAIDEN TRAD. Is it Rye-den Trad? Ray-den Trad? Who knows? (Probably Dave) So please come on a journey with us where we talk about this shooter with plenty of discussion on Slush Puppies, Icee, Jim Varney, Patty Duke and a little Top Gun. Enjoy!
“Pour the silver!” Dave shouted at Tyler. Tyler quickly poured the molten silver into the pentagram mold while chanting the opera scene from Final Fantasy VI backward. “Light our candles at my signal.” Tyler said, he and Dave, nodding to each other. “Now.” Tyler flatly said, as he and Dave lit their replica of the candles Rita Repulsa used to take away the Green Ranger’s powers. “It is finished, The Randomizer is sealed…for now.” Dave said with an exhausted smile. NOW LET’S TALK ABOUT THE SUPER SCOPE! We were given a great gift by Usurper Grimm with a boxed Super Scope. So we have to talk about the Super Scope and it’s packed-in game Super Scope 6. But we do try a hot sauce, talk about port-a-potty problems and delve into some childhood memories. Enjoy!
The Randomizer mumbled something at us. “What? Speak, beast.” Dave commanded. “urosmif” the Randomizer grumbled lazily. “TELL US THE GAME!” Tyler shouted. The Randomizer grinned, “Aerosmith.” Tyler and Dave knew that was no game. “REVOLUTION X!” The Randomizer sang in its best Steven Tyler impression. That’s right! Remember that arcade game? They ported it to SNES or at least they tried. But hey, SODA JERKS returns! We talk Super Scope and make some goofs! Check it out!
HEY! LISTEN! Well, please listen. This episode about Super Star Fox Weekend is a little different that the others you’ve gotten used to because we are talking about competition cartridges. The Randomizer chose Super Star Fox Weekend Challenge for us so we are lumping in the Donkey Kong Country Competition Cartridge, 1990 Nintendo World Championship, Nintendo Campus Challenge 1991, Nintendo Campus Challenge 1992, Powerfest ’94, Blockbuster World Championships, and Blockbuster Game Championship II. Do you like historical gaming goofs? We think you’ll like this one so give it a listen, please.
Andross is back! And we’re talking about Star Fox 2 (or as it’s known colloquially: Space Vulpine Jr.)! Do you want dry game talk exploring the development, cancellation and resurrection of Star Fox 2? We got that. There’s also a lengthy segment, courtesy of Executive Bruiser Janie and Terrified Michelle, where we crunch down on some Mexican snacks directly into the mics (now *that’s* what I call podcasting!). We wrap things up with a Fox Quiz from Quizmaster Bovine Bear Matt, we call Jacob (of wolf-fighting fame), and we answer a few listener voicemails.
