Vortex! Does it sound cool? Sorta! (In a 90s way) Was it fun? Define fun! Did it have an interesting history? Absolutely! The Randomizer dealt us an odd one with week with Vortex, a game none of us had heard of or seen. It was interesting and certainly has a place in the history of video games, along with it’s creator. So in addition to all things Vortex, we talk about Uno, Mario Party, and lots of anime – of course, there is also a draft! So please, come sit awhile and listen to Vortex.
GunForce?! MORE LIKE FUNFORCE (trademark of Dave Moore) AMIRITE?!?!?! I would highly advise you listen and find out for certain, I mean look at that box art! And everyone has heard all about this SNES port of the GunForce arcade! We also talk about Halloween, the latest edition of “Ian’s Horror Hole” (Not trademarked, public domain), some anime recommendations, some Seinfeld references, and a very special quiz by one Mr. Puzzles Dane. Please sit awhile and listen.
Pop’n TwinBee is a series we didn’t really get here in the states BUT thanks to the Nintendo Switch Online service, we finally get a shot at one of MANY games. You know there is something about the game when we skip over intro stories and roll right into the game talk
Earth Defense Force. Those forces that defend the Earth. Are they Super or not? Since this game is also called Super Earth Defense Force. Well, we will break that down along with a lot of other subjects. Ian has quite the story about a dog and it’s owner in his neighborhood. Tyler has strong feelings about Venom 2. We all love Spider Man and are worried about it’s future. We take a quiz. Lots of good stuff here, sit awhile and listen.
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!
