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.

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.

Cabela's The Hunt & Bass Pro Shops The Strike Available for Pre-Order

I have a thing for hunting and fishing games.  I don't really know what it is about them, but I really enjoy playing them.  I think it's because I was taken hunting and fishing a lot as a kid, but I always hated just sitting around with nothing to do ninety percent of the time.

Whatever the reason, these are two games I am looking forward to playing on the Switch.  I have included links below to different places you can pre-order them from the links for Amazon are affiliate links).
