Final Fantasy VI (World of Ruin) has finally come to pass. Does this episode sound a little different? Well, that may be because we are all wearing masks just to be safe from Ian’s brush with COVID but we still recorded an episode! Courtesy of the Randomizer, we decided to re-record out early episodes where we covered this game for IGN’s Top 100 SNES game. We discussed it over two episodes so we changed it up with our new formula into two again – this time with the World of Balance and the World of Ruin (essentially the front and back halves of the game). So now we get to break down the VERY different half of the game, but just as beloved as the World of Balance. Tyler and Dave break down the game while Ian acts more as an audience surrogate asking some important questions. We have our hearts in this one, so we hope you enjoy.
REANIMATE! We’re taking a break from playing through the games on the NES Classic long enough to talk about Crypt of the NecroDancer with Rhythm Master Paul and Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress Chandra. NecroDancer is what it looks like when a rhythm game meets a roguelike dungeon crawler. Aside from game talk, we eat gross jellybeans; Chandra comes at us with some sweet sweet Garfield JOI; there are two (count ’em—two!) quizzes on this episode: a Wizard Quiz and a Necromancer Quiz; and there’s plenty of Dragon Ball talk (we legit discuss Piccolo’s wiener for like five minutes).

BARF! This week we’re talking about River City Ransom: Underground by Conatus Creative, the new follow-up to the 1989 NES cult-classic River City Ransom. Of course you remember that Blake joined us to talk about the original River City Ransom way back in 2015 (Episode 184 for those keeping score at home). Here at TADPOG we strongly believe in tradition as long as it’s cheap and convenient. So…good news, everyone (spoken in the best Professor Farnsworth impression we can muster)! We asked Oathbreaker Blake Woods to join us on this episode. Rhythm Master Paul Corn enters the fray as a new challenger who tells a poop story. Continue reading →
Well here we are, continuing our annual Valentine’s Day tradition of discussing an anime romance game with Rhythm Master Paul and Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress Chandra. This year we each tirelessly deliberated on what game to talk about. We journeyed across deserts, slogged through swamps and traversed via Tauntaun — all in search of the game with the perfect perversion. What game could possibly compete with Hatoful Boyfriend and HuniePop for igniting conversation? I’m not sure…but we selected Nekopara Vol.1. Continue reading →
Hello, we’re just two boys who took some time out of our day to talk about Double Dragon IV. ‘Wait a minute! That’s one of those new-fangled vidjya game releases, right?’ Why yes, Imaginary Disembodied Voice, it is! Well, kinda. We’ll get into that a little bit on this episode, don’t worry. But first we’ll share sexy stories! And we promise there is a Dragon Quiz somewhere in this episode. Continue reading →
Please note: There is an important podcast announcement at the top of this episode. Josh was back to talk about Phantasy Star IV, but we ended up talking about The South and Terraria instead. We talk about Fancy Misters and the Immortal Roach. We ask ourselves, “What Would Randy Quaid Do?”. Continue reading →
Now with 100% more sexual reference! Rhythm Master Paul Corn and Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress Chandra Corn join us for lively conversation about Super House of Dead Ninjas, the ninja-centric platformer by Megadev Games. We talk about other really important things like Emma Frost’s secret origin; invasion of privacy; Tapeworms! We do steal a joke from Paul F. Tompkins but it’s totally worth it. We try Swedish Fish Oreos, Root Beer and Orange Crush Pop-Tarts and read at least one review from taquitos.net. Continue reading →
We’re talking about the rogue-like adventure game Reigns, for Steam, iOS and Android. Dave’s back from Dragoncon, so there’s some discussion about board games, card games and Japanese arcade games. There might also be a teeny-tiny amount of Pokémon Go talk. We read a few texts from listeners; we create a new NBC sitcom entitled “Floor To Man”; we list a few of our favorite subreddits.
