Aw, what the heck. For the AmigaPoV zine that has been on the drawing board for some time now, we have a section called GWLTS (Games We'd Like To See) and I quickly knocked up a prototype just to show the guys what the idea was (there are many better ones in the pipeline - some finished, others on hold). But here is the first one I came up with, since I probably won't end up using it on the real issue.

Well, I was shooting for something very UN-TV Sports and I think Squash fit the bill pretty nicely. Jai Alai was also a consideration. Cody also had a rather amusing entry, but I don't know if he wants it posted or not. If I post any more, I won't have any stuff for the magazine (which I am still working on...damn it takes a long time to produce a magazine!)

If anyone else is either artistically inclined and thinks they can do quality renderings of fake Amiga games (preferrably ones that parody existing Amiga games) or has some funny ideas for fake Amiga games but no artistic skills, please PM me and perhaps it will make it to issue #1!

And since I am on the topic of PoV, any mail for the letters page(s) is also welcomed. I always wondered how a magazine will have a letters section on the first issue, so this is how PoV will attain this. (Just PM me...)

For some reason I could think of Squash being more entertaining than other sports like...say...well let's take soccer since I believe most people know that sport whereas not everyone knows squash.

One of the very good things about Squash is that you don't really get bothered with it on TV. The other is that if you actually go play it you get to improve your hand-eye coordination which you're not really allowed to do when playing soccer. And one very big plus for people like me. Noone wants to play anything with me anyway, but you can indeed smash that ball against the wall without an opponent, beats badminton and tennis on that "feature".

Well, when I was tossing around the many games that I could have used in this series parody, I just thought Squash was so...not TV. I couldn't imagine the typical Cinemaware sportscasters and segues, stadiums, scoreboards, etc. in a Squash game, so that is what made me choose it. It just seemed so absurd. If I had any art skills, I'd have mocked-up screenshots.

I would like a newer version of Magic for the PC though. The one in existance is fun for a play but the AI is too darn stupid, and yet it beats me up every time I play. hmmm. Well internet play would be fun, and Microprose's new creation has y ou buying your own cards which mean you might as well buy the real thing since it's better.
