You know when you end up remembering some sliver of some show or videogame but can't remember what it came from? Well, here's some of that.
Sci-fi show. Leaning towards it being some low budget movie. Saw it sometime in the mid to late 80's. Villains controlled some people with mind control headbands with the gizmo in some silver triangular thing on the front. Hero used a broken one to sneak around with his free will. Scene I vaguely recall involves him freeing some friends and getting weapons.
Trying to remember the name of an old PC game played in MS-DOS or some similar primitive state. Pretty much a medieval conquest game. Resources to manage: Sheep, grain, cows. If you got enough cows, your villages could survive on dairy alone. Tip I received was to just eat all your sheep early, since you could never count on the merchant being around when you had wool to sell. This would allow you to build up the two more useful categories a few seasons faster.
One delayed bit of thanks goes to the Agony Booth for placing Puma Man.
