Big Batch of Amiga Magazines

While browsing Amibay about a week ago, I discovered that a guy named Rolux was selling off his collection of Amiga magazines. Having a lot of holes to fill in my own collection, I quickly went through his list. I found many magazines that I didn’t have. I contacted him to make a deal and a short while later a big (and heavy!) package (which was filled to the brink with golden oldies) arrived.

The box contained 14 issues of a Norwegian Amiga magazine called Amiga Forum. These issues are from early 1992 to the latter half of 1994. All issues contains everything from reviews of games to AMOS tutorials.

I did also receive several English magazines like Amiga Format, CU Amiga and Amiga World. I’m particularly pleased with the Christmas issue of Amiga Format from 1993, as it contains a ton of cool game reviews.

It’s great reading old magazines. I often find interesting information in them. Sometimes I discover an old game for the first time thanks to a review! Other times it happens that I learn something new about ageing hardware or find some programming tips concerning AMOS. All great stuff.

Speaking of reviews. I took a quick and dirty snapshot of a review of The Settlers from one of my new magazines. Have a look! 🙂

It’s safe to say that my collection has increased in size and quality after this purchase. A big thanks must go to Rolux on Amibay for quick dispatch and friendly communication.
