Biffovision

Mr Biffo wrote a monthly column for Edge, the respected multi-format games magazine, from 2003 until 2008. It started exactly as Digitiser was bowing out on Teletext in March 2003, in fact, with Biffo being described within as a 'semi-retired games journalist'. Edge had long been supporters of Digi, printing an excellent retrospective piece and interview with Biffo for Digi's tenth anniversary. As it was winding down on Teletext, Biffo had asked Edge if they were interested in a regular column from him - being brained-up sorts, they of course said yes. And! Some of those columns can now be found: here.
