Star Control reference in Penny-Arcade
« on: April 25, 2008, 11:16:14 pm »

The comic updated a few hours before the news today on Penny-Arcade, so I was surprised when Tycho mentioned a Star Control reference in the strip. Searching diligently I finally found it. Look at the last frame. "PKUNK!"

Good catch, I read the comic but didn't read the action sound closely enough.

I don't get that strip.
How is that funny?
What's that thing bumping on his head? Looks like something from Mario Bros.

It's probably making fun of the Chinese olypmics. The thing in the last strip is a "Blue Shell" from Mario Kart, it finds the guy in 1st place then blows them up, in this case "Pkunk'd".
