Sea of Stars has finally arrived! It hasn’t been out long and we have had several requests already to talk about it so here we are! Don’t worry, this one is spoiler free. All three of us took the dive into this game and discuss it’s mechanics and layout in this episode, we wanted it to be spoiler free so nothing about the story is brought up – if you haven’t played yet, feel free to listen! We do something a little bit different that our normal draft, we go back into Ian’s Horror Hole, the latest anime is brought up and then we finish it all up with some Sea of Stars content. There may be more, but we definitely all want to play more! So please, sit awhile and listen.
Dave the Diver has come ashore on TADPOG. It looked really fun and we all agreed we wanted to buck the Randomizer and play it. Did we like it? Did we really like it? Or maybe just sorta like it? Well, before that we do part 2 of our Marvel draft with villains this time, we talk about the Steam Deck, Baldur’s Gate 3, pickles and a little bit of anime, Ian also makes a serious ASMR confession. There may also be a serious tangent about the loafing Garfield phone, a Sports Illustrated Football phone, and a clear electronics phone from the 90s. If all of that sounds good, please sit awhile and listen!
Pizza Tower! It’s been talked about, copies have been purchased as incentive for us to discuss it, and it’s been batted about the Discord server – here it finally is. We might run the full gamut of emotions on this one. We’ll let you guess on who falls where. We a more heated draft than we imagined it would be, talk about an SNL skit, Mitch McConnell, Paul Rudd, and Overwatch 2. But we have plenty of Pizza Tower talk and even a very special treat from one Gitaroo Man Dalton Suter! So please, come sit awhile and listen! It’s Pizza Tower Time!
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 →
