Alright, y'know... so Digi has been a bit dour this week, with very few stupid lists or whimsical articles. But, y'know... cheer up. I'm merely trying to take stock before the end of the world. Sorry you find my life so boring.
While I have you... don't forget it isn't too late to grab some exclusive Digitiser merchandise for Christmas. We've sold out of 2017 calendars, however, so if you'd still like one - please drop us a line, as we need to know whether it's worth us ordering more. However! Lots of lovely Tea Prancer mugs, stickers, and t-shirts left.
If you would like to appear on next week's page, or you've something you'd like me to give some attention to in our occasional Plug Zone - please send your emails for next week to this place here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Prompted by the Pant-Oh screenshot earlier this week, is there any significance to characters called Belt? David appearing in that and Graham in Biffovision.
A quick Google reveals that the earliest known record of someone with the name Belt was one Arnold Belt, listed in the tax rolls - known as the Feet Of Fines - for the county of Essex in the year 1203. There was also a Benedict le Beleter in Friary Rolls of Yorkshire in 1295.
There are at least five Graham Belts on Linkedin, and one David Belt on Wikipedia. He's an American real estate mogul. Press reveal to see a sweet gallery of Graham Belts.
It would appear that my recent run of chronic heartburn has attracted the attention of some medics with a revolutionary new treatment.
I was very pleasantly surprised with Titanfall 2's campaign and am loving the multiplayer. However, Infinite Warfare is more like Infinite Bore-fare. It's very pretty but oh so very dull.
Is it just me, or is Call of Duty getting amazingly, incredibly stale? Are my glory days behind me, left in the mists of the past along with Quake, Unreal, Doom and other legends? Am I old and clapped out? Advice most welcome!
What is your opinion of current children's games that are popular? Could someone, like you perhaps, who has experience in writing for children's TV, add something to computer games for children - or are they too different media?
I thought that The Last of Us was one of the best games ever made, but I never really liked the ending that much.
I think it would have worked better if Joel had 'allowed' the operation, which did work (at least partially) in producing a cure, but that Joel killed himself over Ellie's death - not cheerful I admit, but I think it would have made for a better ending, and would have fit the themes of the story more than what they went with.
