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.
It’s raining bubbles! This week we’re talking about the Capcom shooter-puzzler for the SNES, Super Buster Bros. This game was requested by Sandwich Pope Phil, so we decided to invite him on to defend his suggestion. We open a package from Shadowrunner Kody. We take THREE quizzes! Continue reading →
It may not be as inspirational as anthropomorphized animals shouting motivational phrases at you, and our delicate tummies are still queasy from the battering g-forces we experienced playing this game…but we decided to record another episode of TADPOG Podcast anyway. On this episode we’re talking about Dorkly’s 7th ranked Nintendo 64 game, Star Fox 64. We’ve included everything you could possibly want: dentist stories, sneezing, an authentic cajun accent and a healthy dose of gross-outs.
Another Original Flavor Wednesday is upon us, TADPOG Nation, and now we take another game off of Dorkly’s Top 25 N64 Games list. Per TADPOG tradition when it comes to Star Wars — we must use the internet to summon Grand Maester Wiley Ammons. We talk about insults we didn’t understand as kids, the best wholesome treats and the plight of Dash Rendar in Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire.
