DIY Amiga game box craft shenanigans

Monday, November 30, 2015 0
Ask any random person on the street what's missing from the internet and in 99.9% of cases they'll tell you they'd like to see freely downloadable, paper craft, miniature box recreations for the Amiga games Robocod and The Addams Family. I guarantee it.

As I'm in the business of making strangers' wildest dreams come true, here are the links to miniature, paper craft box recreations for the Amiga games Robocod and The Addams Family. Enjoy!

To make the panels slot together nicely I'd recommend trimming the corners from the flaps. You only need to glue the largest sides together and then tuck the other flaps into place.

Feel free to post your pictures of the finished article.

The ultimate 9-pin joystick; the list to end all debate!

Tuesday, September 22, 2015 2
Some things are as earth-shatteringly consequential as life and death itself, others more so, and there's quite frankly nothing to rival the sanctity of your personal preference for one 8/16-bit joystick over your friends'. Wars have been fought to establish the one true victor, blood has been spilt and lives lost... and still the crusade of these clashing titans rages with eternal ferocity.

What I intend to do here is answer the Big Question once and for all by means of aggregating all the scores awarded to the various input device incarnations throughout a broad cross-section of 80s and 90s era computer magazines.

These include many of the heavy-hitters such as Amiga Power, CU Amiga, Zzap, Crash and ST Format, given that the joysticks under scrutiny are largely platform-agnostic. The logic being that if you average out the opinions of the most notable figures in this field, we should reach a reliably objective conclusion... which we can then proceed to bicker over, and pick apart the credentials of the reviewers to bolster our own unshakeable biases!

Several of the articles award scores out of a maximum of five stars, while others offer a percentage so what I've done to make them comparable is up or down-scale them so as to fit into a simple 1-10 range.

The Amiga Power buyer's guide uses an unusual scoring system whereby joysticks are given a star rating out of five for durability and ease of use, then deducts a number of stars out of five depending on their likelihood of crippling your wrists with carpel tunnel syndrome.

To make this appraisal comparable with the others considered in this article, I deducted the latter from a maximum of five potential stars, added the three scores together, doubled and averaged them to give a mark out of ten.

Some of entries don't actually include a finite score, just a narrative. While these don't have any impact on the league table, I've included them for reference purposes regardless.

Also notable is that the 'Atari Buyer: Sticks of Dynamite' article includes scores for all contenders except for the Professional 9000 Deluxe. This seems to have been an oversight on their part.

In their subsequent issue, Atari ST Review includes scores for joysticks they have covered previously, but this time award a percentage score which differs from their original grades. I've chosen to only include the ones that proceed the narratives rather than those in the tabulated summary because I think they may well have lost their minds at this juncture and so aren't to be trusted. ;) (actually it turns out this is a straight copy-paste job from CU Amiga's Ultimate Joystick Buyer's Guide, which was another EMAP publication, so that explains the inconsistency).

With the technicalities (and a fair bit of pompous waffle, which you probably skipped anyhow) out of the way, here's the moment you've all been waiting for *momentous drum-roll and fan-fare of trumpets*...

The List, in reverse order of supreme epic-ness, and the raw data it's based on to quell any accusations of stitch-ups (power corrupts you know!).

Below this you'll find links to scans of all the articles the scores are based on, plus a bit of bonus material that in no way influences the leader-board, yet is interesting nonetheless, and because it's nearly Christmas after all (Asda lays out its Christmas stock in August these days).
