RiffTrax Thanksgiving Day 2018 Playlist


Thanksgiving is almost here!  After watching the parade and gorging yourself on turkey with all the fixins, you generally have three options:  Football, napping, or riffing.

I know the new season of MST3K drops on Thanksgiving, but if you stayed up all night binging it, don't have Netflix, or don't care for the reboot (it's really okay, you don't have to like it), I humbly offer up an alternative serving of RiffTrax releases you could watch instead.

RiffTrax Halloween Playlist 2018


This year's playlist brings us a monster, a barber with psychotronic powers, and hardpack.  These riffs clock in just shy of four and a half hours, so they will last you well past handing out candy to trick-or-treaters.

Jeremy Likes BS Ep. 10: HMM '18 Day 11: Carver's Gate

Gloom!  Doom! Nightmares!  Pumpkin Spice!  It's October, and that means it's time once again for Halloween Movie Madness!  This year, I'm going back to my HMM roots, and watching one movie every day of the month.  And this year, instead of writing about it, I'll be doing a short podcast about each film.  That's right, thirty-one podcasts in as many days.  This should be interesting...

3 New NES Games & One Special Edition Added to Nintendo Switch Online

Today gave us the first update to the Nintendo Entertainment System - Nintendo Switch Online (that name is ridiculous...let's just stick with NESflix), and three games were added to the service.  There was also a bit of a surprise.


Nintendo had previously announced NES Open, Solomon's Key, and Super Dodge Ball as the titles that were to be added this month, but they also snuck in what they are calling a Special version of The Legend of Zelda.

As you can see below, the Special LoZ kind of just drops you into the game with some equipment you wouldn't normally start out with.


This is basically a New Game Plus save file.  They start you out with all kinds of goodies.


And yes, that Special ribbon hangs out in the corner there the whole time.

This is a good way for people who might find this game too difficult by starting out with nothing.  Nintendo also announced that more Special versions of games are coming in the future.  I am definitely interested to see what is coming next month along with Metroid, Mighty Bomb Jack, and TwinBee.  If I had to guess, I would say a Special version of Metroid is in the works.
