Special guest Eli Silverman, from Barshens and Cheapshow, joins Biffo and Gannon to ubox their mystery mail, which includes practical jokes, weird snacks from around the world - and even more random items. A series of taste-tests ensues!
Before Nintendo got its act together, the company's NES covers adopted a sort of uniform, pixel art, approach. Though it didn't seem to "prang" the success of the NES too badly, the results were, it needs to be said, mixed.
While third-parties were slathering glorious, fully-painted, artwork on their facades, Nintendo's game covers were rather ugly, and sometimes bore little resemblance to the games they purported to portray. Suffice to say, many of its earliest NES games were subsequently re-released with new, less humiliating, artwork.
Here's a gallery of original NES game covers of said pixel art variety - but wait - the titles have been changed! Using your knowledge, reason, and a very long pole with a hook on the end, can you identify the real titles?!
Don't worry: it's just a bit of fun. Chill out, yeah?
Who remembers Mr Biffo's Found Footage? That was good wasn't it. Can you believe it's three years since the first full episode went out? Now that Digitiser has a lot of new subscribers on its channel, I feel we must make them aware of its existence.
I have a plan to do this, prior to possibly, probably, crowd-funding something new along similar lines. As I told my Patrons recently, I'm planning to take on a less paid work over the coming year, and part of the reason for that is I really want to focus on building the channel.
It feels like we've gained a degree of momentum, and though I think we're a long way from it ever bringing in anything like a real income, between us... events of the past 12 months have demonstrated that what I want and need more than anything is to work on stuff that makes me happy and fulfilled. Obviously I need to still be able to pay my mortgage, mind.
Where am I going with this? I dunno. Just to say, your support - whether it's through Patreon or Kickstarter, or by helping tell people about the channel - is appreciated. If you want me to keep doing more, and not work myself into an early grave... well, I can't do it without you.
That is all. LETTERS NOW.

There's a curious sort of crossover between video games and the musical genre known as "heavy metal"; fantasy themes, adolescent power fantasies, bare-chested men, try-hard satanic symbolism... It's for this reason that, historically, many heavy metal band names and old computer game titles are virtually interchangeable.
Here's a quiz to find out whether you - that's right: I'm talking to YOU - can tell the difference.
Succeed and you might be appointed High Commissioner of India...!
Even after 30 years, the jury is out as to whether Sega's original template for its Master System covers were an example of clean, crisp, iconic graphic design... or a half-arsed abomination.
Either way, the artwork dd lend itself open to reinterpretation, as this gallery attests.
An exclusive interview with Edmund McMillen, creator of the games Super Meat Boy and The Binding Of Isaac, and James Interactive, creator of The Legend of Bum-Bo. Which, regrettably, gets sidetracked when Beanus takes over...
