      So with Zero here and out and an all new timeline established both familiar and different to what we already know, I figure it'd be fun if we collaborated on organizing the unique differences between each (as well as the similarities). I'm only listing what I know, so comment on what I forget or miss and I'll add it!
      The SNES Canon:
      Material Included: Starfox, Starfox 2, Nintendo Power Comic, Starfox Manual
      Storyline Highlights:
      -James is known as "Fox Sr.", Fox is known as "Fox Jr.". 
      -Star Wolf exists in Starfox 2; unsure if this applies any of their backstory from 64 though (Pigma's betrayal, etc)
      -Andross was raised by CYBORG PIGS, has a robot pig adjutant named Herbert (the comic was weird)
      -Andross also was in love with Fox's mother, Vixy, and accidentally killed her with a car bomb meant for James/Fox Sr
      -James/Fox Sr. died when transporting an experimental weapon that exploded, most likely booby trapped by Andross.
      -Andross was banished to Venom after an experiment of his caused a natural disaster on Corneria
      -Andross discovered ancient technology on Venom and used it to create his army alongside recruiting/enslaving/mind controlling the native reptile inhabitants
      -Fara, Fay and Miyu are exclusive to this canon. Honorable mention goes to Algy (Was he meant to be Andrew or his own character?)
      -Andross dies a LOT in this canon. (Once at the end of Starfox, then THREE times in the post-game comic, then a fifth time in Starfox 2!)
      -Venom is terraformed in Starfox 2; may have been green before Andross's arrival (the comic suggests it was barren, the manual says Andross polluted it)
      -Sector Y is a "space ocean" full of aquatic themed animals; Sector X and Z are just debris fields orbit Corneria
      -Macbeth is a volcanic planet with a hollow interior. Titania is a frozen planet (that or Doctor Hangar's weather controller made it frozen?)
      -Locations unique to the SNES canon are Meteor, the Black Hole, Out of this Dimension, Eladard, and Astropolis.
      -Star Fox start out as bandits who raid Andross' armies, illustrating them as a Robin Hood against a corrupt empire; the greater implication is that Venom and Corneria are opposing super powers fighting across the Lylat system.
      -The Arwing is experimental technology that Starfox was asked to use; it did not exist previously.
      -There is no "Original Starfox" before Fox/Falco/Slippy/Peppy; James/Fox Sr. was a Cornerian pilot
      -Starfox's ages are different than other canons: Fox and Falco are in their mid20s and Peppy only in his 30s. Slippy is still 18, however.
      -The Arwing has a mecha form in Starfox 2
      The 64 Canon:
      Material Included: Starfox 64, Starfox 64 Player's Guide, Farewell Beloved Falco Comic, Starfox Adventures, Starfox Assault, Starfox Command
      Storyline Highlights:
      -Introduces Beltino, James as "James", and the "G1" Starfox team along with Pigma's betrayal
      -Andross before the war seems much more sinister, having once reduced Lylat to a "wasteland of near extinction"
      -Andross is again banished to Venom but the ruins this time seem to be ancient instead of advanced.
      -Andross' army consists mostly of apes instead of reptiles
      -Unique major characters are Krystal, Panther, Dash, Amanda, and Lucy. 
      -Introduces other species beyond Lylatians: Anglars and Aparoids
      -Introduced the Landmaster tank and Blue Marine
      -Andross has a more tangible, physical form in this canon compared to others
      -Unique locations are Katina, Aquas, and Solar.
      -Sector Y and Z are different from the SNES canon: rather than a space ocean and a construction yard, they are merely massive radioactive nebulae and space graveyards.
      -Fichina is erroneously called Fortuna in SF64. This is remedied in Assault.
      -Solar appears to be a red dwarf in SF64, but is changed to a yellow or orange dwarf in Command. This is retroactively applied to SF643D as well.  The truth is though Solar is not a star at all, but merely a molten planet like Macbeth is in the SNES canon.

      I just noticed something while looking at the bios in Smash 64...

      Also take note that metal (Helmet, belt buckle, blaster. ect.) does NOT show up,

      Not sure how many people here played or even care about the original Shadow Warrior or the awesome 2013 reboot, but I felt the need to share the wang news. A sequel has been announced for PC, PS4, and XBONE next year, and will be shown at the upcoming E3.
      Not much information so far; Five years after the events of Shadow Warrior 2013, humans and demons are co-existing. Despite this progress, Lo Wang and some new buddies of his still have a lengthy list of asses to kick. New gameplay features include four player co-op, procedurally-generated maps, and new guns and swords includng the best damn shotgun reload animation you've ever seen.
      Gameplay is now much more vertical; Double jumping and parkour elements allow for more ways to manuever the map. Also, a single player campaign will be included.

      Pretty much just what the title says. And I have to admit, this is pretty freaking awesome.
