Cleaning up after a troper with grammar issues, I followed the following from Take That, pending context.

Take That:
  • A hilarious one in Space Quest 6:
Narrator: What are you going to do? Play More Dull Combat 3?

Please provide some context for the example before removing the comment markup.

Also, he has a habit of capitalizing words that don't require capitalization. I don't know if things like "food replicator" or "change machine" are actually capitalized in the game. I'm assuming they aren't, please let me know if they are.

I'm a little confused as to what more context is needed. It's pretty obviously the Space Quest folks making an insulting reference to, well, Mortal Kombat. It's a game in the arcade on Polysorbate LX, FWIW.

That will probably be enough context actually. As it was written, we had "here's an example" and a quote without context. It felt like one of those "Trope: And how!' sort of examples.

"FWIW", the location where Polysorbate LX can be found, or net abbreviation I'm not recognizing?

FWIW = For what it's worth.

Polysorbate LX is a planet, so it's already a location.

Ah, didn't recognize it. For all I knew it was Polysorabte LX in the FWIW system/sector/nebula.

S'OK, honest mistake.
