No matter how far you escape from your past, it can always come back and corrupt you. Such is the case with Xergiok, the old goblin king, who was last seen in “The Silent King”, with a fetish for whacking goblin hams; until Finn and Jake took him down, and Whisper Dan became the new king. Since then, Xerg had lost his eyes, grown a beard, and became a caretaker for a bunch of griffin-like creatures, and has lost his appetite for spanking.
Finn and Jake are scouring the badlands, looking for the “Birdman”, when they pass out, and run into Xerg, who tells them he’s changed, and that it was thanks to them. They are a bit skeptical, so he shows them his changes.
This episode is nice, lots of callbacks to “The Silent King”. My favorite joke would have to be when *minor spoiler* Xerg is breastfeeding some birds (off-screen), and the whole scene shows Finn and Jake’s faces as their mouths open wider and wider, and ending with Xerg pulling his shirt back into place; it’s as great as a sight gag can get.
A another great episode for the Adventure Time library.
My tastes in games breach all genres, though my fortes are platformers and first-person shooters. My favorite game series is probably Super Mario, specifically the 3D games. I also love Rayman, Hitman, Bioshock, Half-Life/Portal, Uncharted, and Grand Theft Auto. As for my favorite game, it's hard to say: I love Portal 2, Shadow of the Colossus, Half-Life 2, Bioshock, Resident Evil 4, Super Mario Galaxy 2, Rayman Legends, Hitman 2: Silent Assassin, Grand Theft Auto IV, L.A. Noire, Fallout 3, Journey, and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence all so damn much.
