Join myself and Octav1us on a retro road trip, as we go and retrieve a mysteriously labelled "Amiga Console", from the middle of the United Kingdom, after winning an online auction. We have no idea what this so called "console" is, or what accessories it is supplied with. This is our quest, it is also our punishment. We also find a few unique goodies on the way, including some information about a game called, Black Dawn 7.
Octav1us & I have another channel where we do things:
Full Black Dawn Rebirth beta gameplay:

  • Why did they call it a console? Do they call them consoles in the UK? His P45? What the Hell is a P45? Is that like a W2 form?

  • 1200 for a hundred pounds "A pretty good score".... understatement of the year there.

    • Yep, even stock A1200s go for a few times that on the internet, not to mention this one has a 68030 (how I dreamed of buying such a thing in the 1990s), a CD drive and LOADS of great software. And Rise of the Robots, unfortunately :). It's good for the buyer when the seller doesn't have much understanding of the market value of what they are selling, which probably also explains the description of it as a console, despite it having a keyboard! I mean no offence to the auctioneer regarding the value, it's understandable that they would underestimate its worth to enthusiasts, what with it clearly being an archaic machine, but calling it a console is amusing (keyboard!) and ironic given that the fairly common misconception that the Amiga was ONLY good for games was often lamented by Amiga owners, magazines and of course Commodore.

  • I have a question... You bid on an unknown quantity. It could have been a complete waste of money. You travelled over 100 miles to collect it then had to get it all into your car and then out again without ever knowing if you had bought anything worthwhile. My question is, who the hell is the girl? I mean, WTF, is she your carer? Can't be your girl friend. You are a send confessed nerd. Nerds don't have girlfriends, certainly not the quality of this girl. Did you use hypnosis? What is your secret?

  • I grew up in the U.S. and have never seen an Amiga before but these British youtubers are so entertaining that I now find it all really interesting. Between nostalgia nerd, octav1us, thgm, guru Larry and Daniel Ibbertson I know way more about British home computers than any 'merican needs to.

    • @gwishart Yeah you only get one life mate so make the most of it, don't sit there wallowing in self pity and crying for help by making pathetic little cuts on your arms.... if you wanted to end it then you'd cut yourself properly...but people like that haven't got the bollocks.... lifes what you make ones gonna coming running to help you every time things don't go your way. these days so many people have some kind of 'mental illness' so they can go crying to the doctor for happy pills or a way to get out of working, 95% of the time it's bullshit

  • Haha, I remember playing that Shuttle game, after finding it lurking on the HDD of a rotten old PS/2 in the Careers Room (!) at school. You can get launched and into orbit just by spamming random keys on the keyboard, but I don't think I got any further than that (eg releasing or recovering a satellite / docking with a space station, successfully re-entering and landing) because that's where it got more complicated. Nice to look at even in 16-colour low rez at least.

    Mark PenriceMark PenriceÅr sedan
  • At all of 1:30 in, I'm going with "a CDTV or CD32 with an add-on floppy drive". They had ports for a regular Amiga external floppy, along with mouse and keyboard, didn't they?

Annoyingly the former being cheaper and better marketed despite being distinctly lower powered meant it got much more sales and it was more accessible to The Kids. (That and the 32bit bus made accelerators much more effective)
