1687 Space Hallways.

I’m pretty sure that the cast has referenced the MST3K version of Space Mutiny before. If you’ve never seen it go find it. It’s in Netflix if you want a legit way to see it, along with a new season of the show… or the reboot if you choose to look at it that way. In any event, if you don’t want to support the creators then I’m sure it’s on youtube. I’m pretty sure people can get what they are talking about from context, but if you’ve seen the show you’ll have a deeper appreciation for what they are saying. Space Mutiny is one of the best episodes of MST3K.

I finally got a Nintendo Switch and to play the copy of Breath Of The Wild I bought a couple months ago when it came out. I managed to hear virtually nothing about the game of import so I managed to go in mostly blind. The very first thing I did after exiting the cave you start from was fall off the scenic cliff where the game starts. I haven’t had time to play very long, but one thing I did find out is that every single amiibo will give you 3 to 5 random items. The Zelda ones will give you special stuff, but EVERY amiibo gives you something once a day. This includes amiibo cards. As you may remember, I have a huge stack of double animal crossing amiibo cards. There must be 100 of them at least. I scanned every single one of them. So I’m walking around with way more money than I think I’m supposed to be, at least as far as the designers are concerned. That said, money certainly doesn’t make you invincible. Nor do the Items Zelda amiibo give you. They still break, it just takes a little longer, plus they appear to be random. The only thing that you can use over and over is Wolf Link. He can be summoned to aid you at any time and is a very powerful ally. He can take down most standard enemies on his own, and has other skills you can make use of too. I leave him behind most of the time because he can’t follow you when you climb and if you fast travel he disappears. If I get to wander around a flat area I think I’ll use him more. I got far enough to tame a horse. It’s green so I named him Geenbean. In any case the game is a lot of fun right out of the box and I hope I can play some more soon. At the moment the Switch is taunting me while I work on other stuff…


Funny, that’s the episode I watched in preparation for the revival. I think my favorite part was how the Battlestar Galactica footage escaped their mention, but they caught Star Trek’s Red Alert klaxon.

I too just obtained a Switch and managed to avoid anything re: Breath of the Wild. I happily had a weekend with no major work obligations so I could play to my hearts content (until tomorrow, I guess). I don’t have amiibos, mostly because I didn’t have a Wii U, but this may compel me to find a few. I did manage to set myself on fire shortly into the game and subsequently toasted to death. In rapid succession, I fell into icy water and became a Linkcicle. I’m amazed at all the ways stupidity can cause you to die. Very well done.

I don’t know what this MST thing is, but Red Letter Media did a great review of Space Mutiny. This Commander Santa has to be Cameron Mitchell, their favorite grumpy B-Movie actor.

MST3K is for “Mystery Science Theater 3000”, an old show (currently revived on Netflix) whose base idea was/is to show the characters in silhouette while they watch bad movies in a theater and make comments on about everything that looks wrong and/or funny in said movies.

I’ll be honest… So far, BOTW is the only reason I’d be tempted to buy a Switch. Instead, I think I’ll just wait for an Emulator to be made, and then buy BOTW alone instead of paying for the hardware I don’t need/want.

I keep reading BOTW as Best of the Worst.

What the hell does Jay ‘da bae’ Bauman have to do with a Nintendo Switch?

I have no idea who that is. I was simply replying to Jackie’s under comic post. BOTW is, currently, Breath Of The Wild, the latest Zelda game, on the Switch.

When I heard rumors that scenes from Episode 8 would be filmed in Kansas near Topeka/Lawrence, my first thought was ‘why wouldn’t they use western Kansas?’ The sandy topsoil could make it some semi-verdant patch on Tatooine. Sure Eastern Kansas has hills and beautiful sunrises and sunsets, but the Ozarks would probably be better suited for that.
