In today's anniversary edition of Digitiser, Violet Berlin returns - and talks about her perfect Mario game - we re-review Cybermorph for the Atari Jaguar, and look at all the failed gaming hardware that was released in 1993. Get (it) in!
TOMORROW: EVEN MORE NEW-OLD DIGI!

I have just been chuckling while hidden in a toilet cubicle at work to read this. I thank you for this.

Did you actually obtain (or still own from before) a Jaguar to review that game?
3/1/2018 11:31:49 am
I got me a ROM.

Ummmmmmmm. I'm telling.

I had a Jaguar. Its version of Wolfenstein was great, and AvP was excellent too. But the rest...
3/1/2018 12:01:10 pm
Wot, no Tempest 2000?
3/1/2018 01:52:19 pm
Oooh, good call! Although I never managed to get a copy of it for myself.

The playstation version, Tempest X3, is slightly more available and esoteric to get playing than finding an old Jaguar copy, and console to play it on. It has slight differences BUT also features a cheat code to get the Tempest 2000 version, which is all but identical to the Jaguar original.

Ah, you've watched that episode of the Angry Videogame Nerd as well. I doubt you actually owned a Jaguar yourself and the game.

It absolutely warms my heart to get a real-deal fresh bout of Digi every day this week. Thanks Biffo - it's helping me appreciate how much influence your writing style has had on my own over the years.

I, too, becamse a snooty gamer because of Edge... but eventually just started skimming through it for the review scores. All I ever really read properly was RedEye and Biffovision, for its brief run. What a waste of money! I blame the Internet for destroying my attention span.

Same here. When Biffo left, I took at look at how much I really read the content in Edge. It was the last games magazine I picked up regularly, but in the end I couldn’t justify that much money for old news, reviews I didn’t really need (not that reviews are inherently useless, but to me they didn’t present much value), and no demo disc. Now I only pick up Retro Gamer when there’s a really good feature.

Great to see the return of Violet. I haven't even been able to touch Mario Odyssey yet thanks to Zelda and Splatoon 2.

Kind of wish Biffo had posted these as full size animated GIFs, with a massive delay between each frame.
3/1/2018 03:58:58 pm
Yes, with a massive delay, but then two pages later, it goes by inexplicably fast so you have to reload the whole cycle again.

Or the last bit of the review reading:

Nice one cheers. That makes both total sense, yet at the same time none at all. What a massive faff for such a popular and long-running game series.
5/1/2018 01:52:23 pm
There's kinda no going back now because of how brilliantly the current voice actor goes "Fear the mighty Bison".

For further confusing fun, the upcoming 30th anniversary compilation of classic Street Fighter games is being released in Japan with the Western versions of all the games, including all the Western character names, which is going to confuse people here no end. The series is actually run by Capcom US these days, not Japan. So which version is now canon is anyone’s guess.
3/1/2018 04:08:16 pm
But Violet, of course Mario flies in Mario 64... The art on the game cart and box is the first giveaway!
3/1/2018 06:33:26 pm
This is soooooo glorious. Incredibly heartwarming after a fairly lacklustre return to work today.
3/1/2018 06:43:02 pm
I played a ROM of Tempest 2000 once (shh) but kept dying after about 15 seconds. Clearly there was something I was missing? Or did I just not git gud?
3/1/2018 07:15:49 pm
It starts fairly gentle, so perhaps you missed one or more of:
3/1/2018 08:06:44 pm
Yup, powerups and jumping.

To be fair, the fight would be pretty short and messy if car jaguar was inside cat jaguar.
