TFS Pocket 35 - We're Esports Now!

Well, it's official: Speedrunning is esports. Esports teams have gone a long way to support some of the top creators in the speedrunning community, and in this episode, we attempt to dive into what this actually means for the speedrunning scene, with the special help of guest hosts GrandPOOBear and Andy from Allegiance. Special thanks to Connor Hall of Allegiance and RagingCherry on behalf of Tempo Storm for providing some background info. Website - Twitch -...


Episode 68 - The Legend of Zelda (NES)

The game that spawned a legacy, as well as a board game, a trading card game, and a breakfast cereal. I guess the thing here is that Zelda is kind of a big deal and it all started here. John and Chad, with the help of guest co-host Lackattack24, are gonna take you on a journey to Hyrule. Website - Twitch - Patreon - Discord - Guest -...


TFS Pocket 34 - Jaws

Jaws! You remember that awesome campy thriller/horror movie about the great white shark. Well this is a video game, and it's not about that movie. It's about the bad one that killed the franchise. Anyways, sorry if we sound a little different. We had a cold. Don't ask. Website - Twitch - Patreon - Discord - Warp World Podcast -...


Episode 67 - Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

Ever just wake up some mornings and feel like you're a completely different person? Ever get cursed by a metal dragon and transform into a giant lizard man? Who hasn't? But what do you do when the unsightly scales start growing, you breathe fire every time you hiccup, and your clawed feet just won't fit in your favorite pair of shoes? Find the salamander cross, of course. In this episode, John and Chad discuss The Dragon's Trap with one of the devs of the game, Sebastien Ronsse, part of...


TFS Pocket 33 - Karnov

Ello! This is Karnov. I am to be in game that you may like. Please listen and remember that in Mother Russia, Karnov play you! Website - Twitch - Patreon - Discord -


Episode 66 - Final Fantasy Adventure

Do you like Final Fantasy games? Too bad, this is actually Seiken Densetsu. Unless you were in Europe, then this was Mystic Quest. But not Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. A different Mystic Quest. Kinda like Secret of Mana. I hope you were taking notes -- there's a quiz next week. Website - Twitch - Patreon - Discord - Special Thanks -...


TFS Pocket 32 - Puggsy

(I am contractually obligated to inform our fanbase that this is another Sega game episode). Puggsy, a character that can best be described as a sausage casing filled with squirrel blood, may be the most unsuccessful game mascot yet, but damn if he doesn't make for an awesome speedrun! Website - Twitch - Patreon - Discord - Special Mention -...


Episode 65 - Metroid (NES)

Metroid is a pretty cool guy; he kills space pirates and doesn't afraid of anything. In this episode, we turn to speedlegend MetroidMcfly to tell us how to become experts at running, jumping, shooting, and rolling. Get your controller, pop in your Metroid cart, and let's kick some alien butt! Website - Twitch - Patreon - Discord - Guest -...


TFS Pocket 31 - Big 20 #8

Twenty games, thirty days, forty(?) runners, fifty states, sixty minutes... wait, what were we talking about again? Oh yeah, the Big 20 is back and better than ever. This list looks pretty promising and you definitely won't want to miss this awesome lineup. In this pocket, John AND Chad (both hosts, think of the value!) cover all of the games and find a lot of cool new co-op speedgames along the way. Website - Twitch -


Episode 64 - Patreon Special #4 (StarTropics)

Grab your yo-yo and hit the seas in search of your uncle, Dr Jones (no, not that Dr Jones). Sure, it might look like your standard Zelda-like adventure game, but you've never seen Link catch rad air like our boy Mike does. Hopefully this neat adventure doesn't end with a lame "aliens" plot twist like the last Indiana Jones movie. Boy, those writers had no respect for their target audience, huh?

Feed Ryu daily by stabbing unsuspecting enemies in the face! Keep Ryu fit and happy with tons of flips and acrobatic jumps! Parenthood never felt so good! Website - Patreon - Discord - Guest -


Episode 63 - Hook/Aladdin

One episode about two great games both based on Robin Williams films. You'd think with a great theme like that that it *had* to be planned in advance, but nope, just a total fluke. Sit back and relax while we take you on a journey through Neverland... or Agrabah? Website - Patreon - Discord -


TFS Pocket 29 - Strider

In this episode, Chad covers the history and background of the Strider series. After the hit speedrun tutorial showcase at AGDQ 2018, the leaderboard for Strider on the NES absolutely blew up. If you're looking for your entry into the speedrunning scene, this might be your game. As they say: Anybody can Strider! Website - Patreon - Discord -


Episode 62 - AGDQ 2018 Recap

Good things come to those who wait! Just one week after AGDQ 2018 raised more than $2.2 million, here we are with a recap on what we saw, what we loved, and what we missed.

Episode 59 - Cart Swap #2

For Christmas, most friends exchange gift cards or socks or bottles of expensive-looking alcohol. John and Chad exchange games and force the other to play them. Is this the new tradition? Will they enjoy it? Will there be new world records? What happens to the little light when you close the refrigerator door? Find the answers to all these questions and more in this episode. Website - Patreon - Discord -


Episode 58 - Shantae and the Pirate's Curse

Sometimes the hardest part of a good speedgame is picking which anime girl to buy a bodypillow of. Take this trip through the world of Sequin Land while we discuss what makes the Shantae games so great, both casually and as speedruns. Hopefully you don't get washed overboard with all the excitement! Website - Patreon - Discord - Guest -
