“HEY! Listen!”
Earlier this year we paid tribute to everyone’s favourite video game plumber by celebrating Top 5 Super Mario Songs¬†. But Mario isn’t the only one with a big anniversary to celebrate this year. That’s right! This time, we are giving love to another one of gaming’s most popular franchises – The Legend of Zelda for their 35th anniversary! So this week join Tuong and the Tri-Force trio that is Justin Godelie, Spencer Moreland, and Kristine Shadid as they grab their ocarinas and spin attack their way to making a Top 5 Legend of Zelda Songs list!

“It’s a-me!”

We are not quite done celebrating Mario’s 35th birthday in the PodCavern! Like many games that came to the Wii U, this particular one was revered by many but played by so few…until now! So join us this week as Tuong La and Doug MacKendrick talk about the newest (sort of) cat-filled adventure of Mario re-released on the Nintendo Switch – Super Mario 3D World and the brand new free expansion Bowser’s Fury!

Mama mia! It’s Mario time!
To celebrate our favourite mushroom-eating, high-jumping, adventure-seeking Italian plumber on his 35th birthday, we take a look back on all the Mario games that have brought us gamers so much joy over the years. While last year we ranked Top 5 Super Mario Games, this year we wanted to celebrate an aspect of these iconic platformers that is crucial to making these games what they are but are so often overlooked – the music! This week join Tuong La and Koopa Kids Samantha Leggatt, Spencer Moreland, and Alex Toth as they venture into the Mushroom Kingdom, high on a star power up, while grooving out and ranking Top 5 Super Mario Songs!

It’s Christmas time in the PodCavern!

After a two week hiatus full of editing and microphone failures, Talkin’ Tuong is back just in time to bring Christmas Cheer in the PodCavern! Join Tuong and Laura Gordon as they kick off the spirit of the h0lidays as they watch Vanessa Hudgens switching clothes, accents, and roles in the Netflix Original – Princess Switch 2: Switched Again!

It’s-a-me, Mario!

Mario is arguably the most iconic video game character of all time. Over the last couple decades, this pudgy little high-jumping Italian plumber has shaped the hearts and minds of gamers across the world and has consistently pushed the boundaries of what video games could be. From platforming, to party games, to karting around, to playing every conceivable sport – this one character has found ways to Nintendo-charm its way to being one of the all time greats of pop culture! So join Tuong La and Ninten-Nerds Alex Toth, Brian Costa, and Dan Foerster as they eat a power-up mushroom and storm their way through Bowser’s castle while ranking a Top 5 Super Mario games list!

Happy 50th episode to Ranked!

Big thanks to all of our listeners and guests for getting us to episode 50, we couldn’t have done it without you! 2018 was full of ups and downs in the world but if we could take one small bit of solace, at least video games were pretty awesome last year. Join Tuong La and Gaming Guru’s Angus MacDonald, Ethan Howieson, and Dan Foerster as they celebrate 2018’s year in gaming by ranking a Top 5 list!
