logo_starfox_zeroI’m back, and just in time for Star Fox Zero’s Australian release this Saturday, April 23.

Big W has the game for $64, which is the best price I’ve seen so far.

You can get the “first print” edition that includes a physical copy of Star Fox Guard from both JB Hi Fi and EB Games for $99.

The first print edition is (at this stage) the only way to own a physical copy of Star Fox Guard.

But is it worth an extra thirty or so bucks?

Arnie_280_860679aI won’t be posting anything for a few weeks, I have some stuff going on that I need to sort out.

I’ll certainly be having some fun on Miitomo, then back to rustyshell on April 20.

See you then!

Check out this incredibly detailed look at how the inner workings of the Gameboy from YouTuber JackTech.

It’s a detailed, confusing look at the machine specifically- but also programming languages and techniques in general.

I can’t wait for Part 2.

sfvlogoIf you missed grabbing the game at $64 from Big W over the last few days, the best Australian retail price for Street Fighter V is $78 from Target.

No one’s come through with even a $69 price tag, which is disappointing.

Many JB Hi-Fi stores do really cool freehand signage, but this one at my local store is some of the best I’ve seen.

It’s awesome that JB let their staff express themselves creatively like this, and while ad-hoc signage can look tacky, this one looks unreal.

I never knew this until just now, but Google Chrome’s no internet connection screen with the little T-Rex is actually a side scrolling endless runner.

All you have to do when the screen appears is press the space bar, then away he goes, running screen right through a minimalist desert backdrop, avoiding birds by ducking and cacti by jumping.

The game is also on the smart phone version of Chrome, but the touch screen controls are (as you’d expect) nowhere near as responsive.

Still, it’s a cute, free, offline way to pass some time in the office or when you’re out and about.

Apparently Chrome’s “Unable To Connect To The Internet” screen has featured the little dinosaur since the browsers inception in 2008, and the dinosaur game went live in 2014.

That means I could have voted for him in the Smash Ballot. What a missed opportunity.

Good luck chasing that high score.

gblogoA Giant Bomb forum post entitled What are your biggest “I’m an idiot” revelations in games? has thrown up some of the funniest, most satisfying responses I have ever read.

It also made me feel like less of an idiot as I realized people have made the same mistakes I have.

I had to share the link, so take a look at it here– it’s so worth it.

Cereza_Bayonetta_2_renderI just wanted to remind you that Bayonetta and some guy from Fire Emblem are downloadable from today on the Aussie eShop.

These additions of course signal the end of Smash character DLC for now.

Here’s the best video I’ve ever seen about the early history of N64, from YouTubers TheJWittz.

There’s plenty of beta footage I’d never seen before, and I truly thought I’d seen it all.

Take a look at the video below, and don’t miss part two of this on YouTube.
