Largely when covering Amiga games, I enjoy focusing on the largely unheard North American perspective of things. It's not often you can say that perspective is unheard, but that is the case when it comes to this wonderful machine in the Amiga. I believe Europe, in its very heartfelt love for the Amiga, has often not given the different but very important American market much consideration. This even taints American's who cover the machine, who due to their age have really only heard the perspective of the similar aged Europeans. But the people who bought the Amiga in America back in the day were not children, they were adult computer hobbyists. Many fantastic games and software were …

My parents had a later version of Life from 1977, and I also have fond memories of playing that. I can feel the comfy bed that she would set the board on, there couldn't be a better way to play. There are a lot of instructions to read when playing Life, and it was nice to just lay back while my mom did the reading. ^Instructions

I always knew that the version my parents had was the better board for your eyes…

A couple years into making the videos I attempted my first written review, which was meant to compliment but be unique in comparison to my video reviews. I enjoyed writing that so much that I decided I'd continue to write separate articles as well as doing the videos. Couldn't tell you if any of those hobbies have been a success or not, but all amounted to immense enjoyment from my myself... and I hear on occasion, others as well. When I have a hobby, I do seem to go "all out" with it.

With the music, I've made several albums, including one written fully on my beloved Amiga 500. I couldn't just do one song, I had to make it an experience. The video reviews tend to be quite in depth; diving into memories, old reviews from magazines,…
