The Randomizer works in mysterious ways. After throwing sports game after sports game in our faces, IT FINALLY THROWS US SOMETHING IN OUR WHEEL HOUSE — months after it would have been SEO relevant — BUT STILL! So this week we break down Marvel Super Heroes in War of the Gems for the SNES! We start off by enjoying some snacks sent by Better Than Us Choctopus, we talk about Call of Cthulhu and just a bit about Star Wars, and then we wrap things up with a glorious quiz from Ross-Rachel Green.
Marvel Super Heroes in War of the Gems Podcast Shownotes:
It has been over two years since we have recorded our last actual play of the Call of Cthulhu tabletop role-playing game. Rhythm Master Paul Corn, Soul Sister Yarn Sorceress, and Casey (we’ll probably come up with a great title for him at some point) join us to roll up some investigators for a campaign entitled Piggy Palace. It’s an original story by Tyler that takes place in the crime-ridden streets of 1981 Vancouver, British Columbia. We present to you Chapter One of this story. The rest of the chapters will be available on our Patreon page. Chapter Two and a bonus session of our character creation is available there now!
Call of Cthulhu (Actual Play) Podcast Shownotes:
Our character creation session and Chapter Two of Piggy Palace are both available on Patreon right now, if that’s your kind of thing.
We prayed to Randomizer while wearing Dr. Seuss hats, wearing alien pendants, wearing JNCOs full of yo-yos. The Randomizer accepted our offering of 90s trends and responded with giving us Beavis and Butt-Head for the SNES to review. We had to bring on our most Wizened Sage, Ian Chandler, to help gird our Mike Judge mindset to properly enjoy the game. We talk movies, try some hot mustard, take a quiz, and get the REAL AND TRUE STORY to Beavis and Butt-Head. Probably.
Hi. How are you? Are you well? Good. We are very glad you are but we are going to put it out there now that Tyler was not during the recording of this episode. Illness struck TADPOG this week but there was no way were going to leave you without an episode. So please forgive us for the sneezes and the honks and the coughs. We brought some goofs and some info about the gift the Randomizer brought this week in Super Battleship. So, please forgive Tyler’s immune system and enjoy our offering we present to you.
Champions World Class Soccer. That is what the Randomizer gave us for this week. I’m not going to mince words or beat around the bush. We ain’t soccer guys. This ain’t a good game. It ain’t gonna make us soccer hooligans. So we talk about it but we also just have fun with this episode. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy a stream of nonsense that has the most delicate soccer flavor that a podcast can have.
I know we ask you so much every week but we have been so so so good this week and we promise to keep being so good if you would do me this one favor. When we record it’s going to be Dave’s birthday. He is just the best spicy boi and deserves so much on his special 38th birthday. He really loves Pac-Man! So if you could please give us a Pac-Man game that is not a reskin of another game, we would love it so much! Could it not have horrible music? And if the story made sense, we would be good for the whole rest of the year! If we got all that we would try some spicy seafood snacks, take a quiz, and get so Baja Blasted!
-Praying on the Monkey’s Paw, Tyler “Dry Tubs” Holland.
Have you ever looked at Link, Hero of Time, and thought “Damn, I wish that were Uncle Fester.” Well, you can have that sort of wish in Addams Family Values! We get Baja Blasted and talk about the movies, what we got up to during the week and take a very creative quiz from Ball Bro Ross Rachel Green. ALL HAIL THE RANDOMIZER FOR THE SPOOKY OCTOBER GIFT OF ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES! Maybe we will get lucky and get one of the other Addams Family games this month.
Out of 100 people surveyed, the top one answer is on the board: name a Super Nintendo game which features two families competing to name the most popular responses to survey questions in order to win cash and prizes. Show me…Family Feud for the Super Nintendo! Number one answer! That’s a long way of saying we’re talking about Family Feud, the 1993 Super Nintendo adaptation of the game show by Imagineering. We’re recording in a new studio space for this episode, so there’s a little bit of talk about that. We try snacks that Tyler’s Boss and Boss-in-law brought back from Greece. Naturally, we draw parallels to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and our favorite Family Feud hosts. There’s a lot going on here, I guess is what we’re trying to say. We hope you enjoy!
