Strider

Capcom's 1989 title Strider is a side-scrolling action platformer set in a dystopian future. Players assume the role of Hiryu, a high-tech ninja assassin who can climb up walls using metal hooks.

We'll be using half of WALL-O-VISION this week to stream Awesome Games Done Quick, a wonderful charity event focused around video game speedrunning.

The speedruns are streaming non-stop day and night, but we're particularly excited for Crypt of the Necrodancer on Thursday at 6:19pm and Super Mario Odyssey on Saturday at 7:49pm.

On the other half of WALL-O-VISION you can play Strider, because anyone can Strider.

In this episode of Tubby Talk, Terry, Steve, and Chris talk about the vast world of failed video game mascot games. This dark path takes us to some unexpected places, ranging from manufactured "cool" characters to blatant advertisements to lifeforms composed entirely of balls.

Topics discussed include: Plok, Earthworm Jim, Boogerman, Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel, Gex, Bubsy, Bonk, Rocky Rodent, and so very many more.

All of us here at Tubby Robot hope that Santa Karnov was good to you over the holiday!

We're taking a one-week break for the holiday season: the shop will be closed starting today until January 2nd, 2019. See you in the new year!

December 13, 2018

It's mid-December, so that means it's time for our limited-edition holiday menu items to make an appearance!

This year we're bringing back our homemade Pizzelle Waffle Cones, which are seasoned with anise to evoke the classic Italian cookie.

We also have Peppermint White Chocolate ice cream, which now contains both white chocolate striping AND crushed candy canes.

Supplies are limited for all of our specialty items; we hold no responsibility for crushed dreams caused by dawdling.

Eagle-eyed patrons of our shop may notice a new Easter egg as part of their ice cream experience: we're now appending a random zany video game quote to the bottom of every receipt.

If you have any favorites you'd like to see added to our list, let us know!

November 24, 2018

It's one of our favorite days of the year: Small Business Saturday!

We're selling hand-packed pints of our homemade ice cream at a special price of $6. Load up your freezer so you don't have to leave the house when it gets colder out!

November 22, 2018

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! We're closed today, but we'll be back to our regular schedule tomorrow. Eat heartily!

November 21, 2018

For one day only (today! Wednesday!), we're hosting Sweet Elizabeth's Thanksgiving Pop-up shop!

If you didn't reserve any items in advance, we still have bundles of caramels and a few boxes of Gingerbread S'mores for walk-in customers. The earlier you come, the better your chances!

November 09, 2018

We rarely get a chance to catch our collective breath and make fresh waffle cones, but we got one this afternoon. Come on by and grab them while they still exist!

October 26, 2018

In this episode of Tubby Talk, Terry, Steve, and Chris discuss the games of the 7th hardware generation ( PS3, Xbox 360, Wii ) that Terry missed out on during a multi-year break from gaming. Steve and Chris offer their "must-play" picks and talk trash on their least favorites.

Topics discussed include: Mass Effect, Super Meat Boy, Braid, Tomb Raider, Uncharted, Gears of War, Halo, Final Fantasy, Dark Souls, Shadow Complex, and Burnout 3: Takedown
