Yeah, it always disappointed me that Commodore didn't upgrade the Amiga's sound with the newer machines. But I still enjoyed making mods and messing around with Deluxe Music and Sonix. I guess my life just wouldn't have been as fun without Paula.

If the Amiga ever gets a re-launch I want Matt to do the presentation at CES.

Do you really want someone waving a drinking horn to present the Amiga?

Considering these guys are part of the original Amiga dev team, I think waving a drinking horn seem pretty sane in comparison.

Yeah but he might erupt into a chorus of "Only Amiga". I mean. Wow.

Presenting the New Amiga with Multibrewing Capabilities. Allow me to demonstrate with Rather Excellent. I click the icon and...Belgian Tripel. Now let's add colorcycling for the bubbles...

Good to see a video interview with the legendary 'Jops'.
Matt, you clearly have a great fondness for the Amiga golden era. It's heart-warming to see these old school industry giants speak their minds in your videos.
I do get excited about many contemporary games, but growing up with the Amiga and DOS with the plethora of diverse and unique games to choose (and still go back to) could never be replaced. What a shame it would be for Modern warfare and all its sequels and clones to define one's gaming childhood

Matt Chat 110: Betrayal at Krondor

Raymond E. Feist's "Betrayal at Krondor": The only game in history with bearded elves. Really a great old RPG. Enjoy!

It does look like fun. It'd be funny if that game becomes his most famous work, though.

When I heard that title I couldn't help but think of this game, even though the names only have communist and space in common

You never knew. That was its power. The greatest trick the Sovjet Union ever pulled was convincing the world it didn't exist. And like that, poof. It's gone.

No documents, no person.

@Matt
Really enjoyed the Jon episodes. I always thought they sampled a woman
