If you haven’t had a chance to yet, scope out EvilDan’s review of the 1st issue of the Mega Man comic! I myself got a copy of the comic, but haven’t read it yet. Either way, check out the review Y’all!

Why didn’t I think of this before!?!? Alright, now I need to dig up some floppy disks.. Shouldn’t be too hard now should it? ;)
Last night I was at the Goodwood Hotel at the 3rd monthly ARGGGH meetup, hanging out with DJ Tr!p talking about retro homebrews recently being released for classic consoles, like the one we mentioned early last year for the Neo-Geo MVS. In particular he mentioned this one, called Pier Solar, for the SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis console. What really spun me out, was that not only is it in extremely limited stock, like 800 copies made, but also this cartridge is the 64 Mega (being the largest cartridge ever used), it’s very well presented (packaging, etc), but it comes with a CD, which will work on a Mega CD, and detect the cartridge in the console for an “enhanced audio experience”.
Now what the heck is ARGGGH you ask? Adelaide’s Really Good Gathering of Game Developers is a great meetup spot if you’re a games developer or somehow involved in the industry, hell even taking some kind of interest in it somehow, you should do yourself a favour and drop on down to the Goodwood Hotel on the 2nd Monday of every month. For more information, check out argggh.gamepron.com!
Got a spare Game Boy? Great, how about an Oscilloscope? Yeah? Nice.. well smoosh the two together, and what do you get? a NintendOscope! Hackaday.com have posted an interesting piece of how folk got the two items together, the end result? Check the YouTube video above, where they demonstrate it with Link’s Awakening!
And finally, here’s a kickass looking hoodie (and just in time for the fresh, crispy winter winds down under)! This one is still for sale and can be purchased here. I was always intrigued about the colour schemes in the underground levels in Super Mario Bros, I don’t know what it is, perhaps the music? Mind you, the video below is what the music in the Underground stages would sound like, if Super Mario All-Stars was on a SEGA Mega Drive…
