Miss the days of the Amiga. Had the original A1000, A500 and then A3000. Had some great games. Hope they put some on the Vita.

You guys and gals remember shadow of the beast

had me an A1200 with zappo cd-rom drive. Still got the drive and the 1084s monitor but sadly...no more A1200.

I hope one of the games they consider for re-release is Walker. That one was cool to play. A time traveling ATST who wouldnt love that?

Amiga is awesome !!!
A sort of crossover between a console (fixed hardware) and PC, with an awesome OS and one of the best library of game.

Cool I remember walker. I had similar setup but used a cd32 as the A1200 part - see below :)

Dark thanks for the link.

I still have one in my garage, but all my disc got damaged. So sad

I used to have a few, but the floppy drives failed and also due the the way floppy discs are, they demagnetised :( Luckily TOSEC are very nice in that regard ;)

I want to play Sleepwalker, Apache Gunship, Vigilante, Shadow of the beast and Nightbreed again! Oh and Cannon Fodder, War in Middle Earth, Dungeon Master, Stunt Car Racer and Fiendish Freddie's Big Top of Fun....

Nightbreed was cool as hell.

Would be cool to see a list of wich of the 300+ Amiga-games they've bought the rights to, so we would know if we could cross our fingers or not..

That's great but I already play Amiga games on my iPad using AmigaPad2 and a bluetooth controller although I'm limited to 1.3 compatible roms and no AGA on iPad.

Also use Amiga Forever on my PC.

As for kit I'm the very proud owner of some mint rarities:

A mint boxed A500+ cartoon classics pack that's used only on special occasions.
A loose A500+ that I use for general retro sessions.
A CD32 with SX1 expansion, 8meg Fast RAM, 80Meg hard drive, keyboard, twin floppies etc. This is my power system :0)

Geoff Crammonds F1GP and Sensi Soccer - ruined my social life for years :))

Psycho Santa Ruled!
Sure it wasn't the best game ever made but I loved the bonus levels on the pokostick jumping up the tree getting presents. Good Times... Good Memories.
