The guy said he currently had 31 Amigas. Where the heck does he store them? In boxes in a garage somewhere?

Aaahh, I remember the Amiga "brick", a simple and elegant solution when all of the innovative Amiga hardware was crammed into the A500 unit itself, leaving only room for a floppy drive. Same for the...

Can't you stick with 4.3.0 for Hexen alone, if it never crashed for you? I always have two versions of WinUAE with me, in case one doesn't work with a certain demo or game.

No earlier examples (sorry) but Doom Eternal's Marauder (already a massively tough nut to crack) sics his spectral dog on you if you hit his shield with your weapons, and even if you don't.

The truth is, I never considered a PC in 1990 (when I got my A500) because they were simply too boring and too expensive. I never dreamed they would one day play games better than the Amiga.

Did ITV's Catch Phrase use Amiga graphics for a few years?

I used to watch this game show a lot, and I think they used Amigas for a long while in the early 1990s, as I recognised them immediately, with rushed DPaint jobs and lots of dithering in the shading...
