I'm brand spanking new here. I was a huge, huge fan of the movies and RGB cartoon back when I was a kid, but kind of lost touch. Over the last few years I've gotten into reading comics. Starting with Marvel obviously, but moving to a lot of Boom and IDW. I just read the Total Containment HC and am just about finished with the Omnibus Vol 1.
I read Total Containment first, and was having some trouble figuring out many of the references. Having read a lot of Marvel, I've gotten used to not having any idea what characters are talking about. (50 years of history is a lot to catch up on.) I figured out some of the stuff the characters were talking about could be read in the collected stories in the Omnibus, and I've just read on the forums the Zombies are from the Infestation crossover (just ordered that too). I had lots of fun catching some of the easter eggs from the cartoons and the toy line as well, though I'm sure there's plenty I missed.
But the video game is what's got me stumped. I've never played video games much, so I have no experience with any of the GB games. Could you guys help me out a bit?
I read a review somewhere saying that the "Rookie" Peter refers to is the game player, right? And then is that the guy in Chicago as well? Is there anything else I'm missing from the video game that's in the book?
Only other thing is, how many times has Staypuft show up in this continuity? Egon mentions that each time he shows up his PKE readings go up. At the time I was reading it I only new about the movie and then the time in the comic.
Anyway, it's good to be here. Thanks, everybody.
