Why Kentucky Route Zero is the most important game of the decade
The creators of Kentucky Route Zero, who run the game studio Cardboard Computer, present themselves as artists more so than designers. They’re industry outsiders who began the project in Chicago, far from the AAA enclaves of Los Angeles, Seattle, and Montreal. So why is it that when I attempt to summarize the games industry of the past decade, they’re the studio that comes to mind?
I think it’s because, perhaps unintentionally, the long road of Kentucky Route Zero — across five separately released acts and multiple interludes — has reflected video games in a period of immense tumult and change. Alongside this game, the industry has begun to grow up, often for the better, sometimes for the worse.
Crowdfunded in 2011, the genre-bending adventure game was one of the first Kickstarter success stories… and one of the first Kickstarters to miss its promised deadlines. The first act debuted on its own in 2013, years before the current trend of games being released in incomplete states or through early access programs.

It’s not the first time that an TV series episode have been completely yanked due to issues. Off the top of my head, the original Hawaii 5-0 second season episode Bored, She Hung Herself aired on January 7th, 1970. A viewer decided to replicate the technique on the show, killed themselves, and sued CBS. As a result, the episode was never rebroadcast, never syndicated, and the DVD set of that season lacks the word “complete” as that episode is missing.
The problem is that the episode was already released on the season three DVD set ages ago, so if you really look hard enough, I’m sure you can find a copy. (No, don’t look at me, I never collected The Simpsons as a series.) There are other series that had episodes pulled from syndication which still showed up in home media releases.

Netflix cancels its Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival
This is the fourth time the cult hit series has come to an end.
Netflix will not produce a third season of its Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival, according to a series of tweets from the show’s star, Jonah Ray Rodrigues.
This is the fourth time in the series’ history that it has been canceled in one way or another. Fans have repeatedly rallied to bring it back on new networks or, in some cases, in totally new formats and spinoffs like RiffTrax. Also on Twitter, MST3K creator Joel Hodgson said, “It’s not the end of MST3K, It’s just the end of the first chapter of bringing back MST3K.”
Utah? Nope. Hmmm.

Was at the show last night. The movie was the oh-so-bad martial arts movie No Retreat, No Surrender. The Winspear Opera House was packed.
As for season 13… not a peep.

I still have yet to unpack the DVD boxes from my move.
Did you ever use that 980 video card that I sent you last year?

Oh, by the way, back to Mr. Prinze – Zloth, were you aware that Sarah Michelle Gellar had a recurring voice role in one season of Rebels? [LINK] (As one of the bad guys no less!) So for a while there, using the Force was the family business. 😆
See what happens when you spend six years of your life in the dark.

Sign…. the “fan” part of “fanatic” bites again and claim another victim. The problem is that the actor has limited input in their roles. They are given the lines to read, and receive the paycheck.
At least I can say is that his life went much better than his father, Freddie Prinze who starred in the short-lived series Chico and the Man before taking his own life. He also married Sarah Michelle Geller, and from all appearances, they are very happily married. Both has pretty good post-Hollywood careers.
I missed the one in 2019 because I had just moved to the area, but subscribed to the Facebook page anyways. I’ve become such an advance planner.
