    Thanks for the review, John. I’m a big Commodore geek – had a Commodore 64 when I was young, and now have one as well as two Amiga 1000s that I’d like to get working. One is already working, but I need to build up a game library, and they are a little hard to come by. I might have to fall back on the emulation route to get my Amiga fix. I *adore* the Amiga – the graphics were good, and the music capability of the Amigas were comperable in innovation to the Commodore 64 SID chip. I’d love to see some more Amiga reviews in the future! Hope to catch you in person some time in the future, I’ll buy you lunch. 🙂

      Thanks, and I agree the Amiga is a great system. 🙂

    I remember seeing a review of this system in Die Hard Gamefan magazine back in the day. If I remember correctly, they reviewed Saturday Night Slam Masters. On a side note, does anyone remember Die Hard Gamefan? It was an excellent independent magazine. The best part about it was the shoot from the hip reviews and previews. If you can find old issues I recommend picking them up.

    Given my 1st true PC was an old MS-DOS Radio Shack Tandy Color Computer. I never know about this’ however I did seeing the adds for the CDTV during shows like Nick Arcade growing up. I don’t relay get into CD-ROM until my 2nd PC came to be running Windows 95. I took some getting use to as their was an big def between DOS 3.0 and Windows 95.
