Hurricane, WV ehh?

You weren't part of Bare Bones software, were you?


I grew up down the road in Huntington and later in Barboursville.

Bare Bones? The BBEdit guys? No, I never worked for them. I have used a bunch of their software and used to recommend it often when I worked for Apple retail.

I'm glad to meet another (former) West Virginian! I lived out of state for most of my adult life but have returned in the past couple years, and I really like living here.

lol no.

There was a store in Hurricane named Bare Bones software. They sold a wide variety of computer software back in the 90s. I remember buying cd32 stuff from them. I think they went under around 97 or so. Several of their guys were hardcore Amiga guys.

Now that makes more sense :) Do you remember where in Hurricane they were located?

According to google it was at 3060 Route 60 East Hurricane, WV 25526

Not sure if that was a physical store or just someone's house as I just ordered stuff from them over the phone.

Amigos Amiga Podcast & Livestream Ep. 5 - Amiga Pinball Special Pt. 1 is live!

This week, we take a look at two pinball games for the Amiga--First Person Pinball and Pinball Dreams. One is great! The other is...not.
Podcast here! http://amigospodcast.blogspot.com/20...al-part-1.html
Archived Livestream here! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3X2sO6sgd8E

You asked on the Marble Madness episode if anyone knows which other coin-op games ran on Amiga hardware. Aside from the game that sparked the debate (Mad Dog McCree), the ones I can think of are...

Gallagher's Gallery
Mad Dog II: The Lost Gold
Space Pirates
Who Shot Johnny Rock

I'm really enjoying the show by the way. Your laid back and under-produced style is so refreshing. When the content is so substantial you don't need dozens of randomly inserted 'funny' clips to pad it out.

boatofcar 31 August 2015 01:56

Thanks dreamkatcha! I have the same feelings you do about "funny" clips in podcasts. I appreciate the list of coin-ops!

boatofcar 06 September 2015 04:07

This week we tackle one of the most infamous wrestling titles ever released for the Amiga.

W00t! Another amiga podcast, YES! I will definitely check it out and follow if interesting:)

Btw, beware of episode burnout by churning out episodes too fast. Just a tip (for my own good of course, so more content will follow;))

dreamkatcha 10 October 2015 01:08

Zool; what a tedious, mean-spirited game. You're punished with every step you take and it runs so uncontrollably fast, every one of them is a miss-step. I felt dizzy just watching your YouTube play-through, especially the part where the protagonist (definitely not an ant) splits in two like a bleary-eyed after-image. Could someone pass me a sick bag?
