I’ve been spending what precious little “free” playing time I have at the moment playing Jeff Minter’s mildly trippy — no, make that acid-drenched-in-a-bucket-full-of-Neon-Paint-And-Magic-Mushrooms-trippy — but above all quite difficult Space Giraffe. It’s currently only available on Xbox Live at a cost of 400 “points” — that’s about $6.60 Australian at current rates. And I’m […]

Still, while we all wait and weep, we can console ourselves that technology magazines are still widely available. Such as (hey! A not-subtle-in-the-least segue! Who woulda thunk it?) the […]
