Did you love the basketball episode last week? Do you just live for TADPOG Sports? Well, you’re likely totally alone. So, one person, we bring you a hockey game, courtesy of the Randomizer—Hit the Ice! The most NBA Jamesest of SNES hockey games…but is that a good thing? You can probably guess. Come hang out with us chatting about bedtime schedules, drinking soda, a little Hades, and a little Outer Worlds.
Barkley: Shut Up and Jam! (sadly not Gaiden or Gaiden II) was the game thrown at us by the Randomizer this week. So, of course, we talk a little about Hades and some other pretty good games we have played. There is PLENTY of Barkley chat, Shaq chat, general 90s basketball references, and a deep exploration of rules concerning what happens if you can defeat Sir Charles Barkley in a game of basketball. Come check out our best attempt at sports chat yet.
Okay, clearly we are talking about Bill Walsh College Football. It’s a sports game. It’s a football game. Dave will be sorta into it. Tyler will not be into it. BUT WE BRING ON LORD DENNIS ROBISON WHO ACTUALLY KNOWS ABOUT FOOTBALL AND THIS GAME! We talk about the names of football players, Tony, Tony’s dad, and plenty of other tangents (with some real talk about this game)
Football Fury! Yet another sports game brought to you by the Randomizer. Not just sports but football, you know, that thing Tyler and Dave know nothing about. The game is about what you’d expect based on the title and game art – so we brought on Jon and Ian of TADPOG I.T. fame! We do address just about everything we can on the game but also have plenty of fun tangents and real talk about pop tarts, a very specific deodorant, and Americanized fast food Mexican desserts. Sit awhile and listen.
TADPOG DOES SPORTS! TADPOG DOES HOCKEY! Well, we try. It’s evident we aren’t sportmen and hockey is even further out of our depths but, courtesy of the Randomizer, we talk on Brett Hull Hockey! (and Brett Hull Hockey 95). Of course we talk about bathroom woes, Billy Mitchell and his hot sauce, and some good ’90s television call backs. We know our track record with sports here but come check it out!
Okay, hear us out. Yes, this is TADPOG. Yes, this is a World League Soccer. Yes, we are not sport ballers. Give us a chance! We think this is a pretty funny episode (as long as you aren’t actually looking for quality soccer content). We talk Saved by the Bell, getting old, Harvey Keitel, and some pretty good redneck portmanteaus.
“Spit out your choice, foul beast.” Dave demanded of the Randomizer. “Sport.” The darkness whispered back. “Foreman for Real.” is said stoicly. “Boxing? HA, that sounds great.” Tyler replied enthusiastically. The darkness dryly chuckled in response. SO WE PLAYED THE SNES BOXING SEQUEL FOREMAN FOR REAL, STARRING GEORGE FOREMAN! Guess what? Garbage so hot is burned our hands. But we do drink and take plenty of tangents, come check it out!
Street Hockey ’95. WOOOOOF. Let’s not beat around the bush. The Randomizer did us dirty with, up until this point of the show, the worst video game we have ever played. So we bring some prime trash talk. We also talk about Coolio, Sexy Ned Flanders, and get in some deep MTV Lore. Please, enjoy our pain.
