Haven't seen the Blue Thunder series but the movie is shown fairly often on what was the Sony channel in the UK.

The series was good, but Airwolf was better imo.  The movie is really good and glad to hear it is shown often as it is a great watch for sure.

With The Brent sitting in for John this week lets take a look at Fly Harder on the Amiga. Is the name deserved?
Full review and this week's Amiga News: https://youtu.be/WHqkw3jGx8Y
Is this Thrust type of game just too difficult?

Same song, different verse with yet another game that could have been really good, but instead falls short.  Still, I always do enjoy a romp through the world of Amiga and look forward to many more episodes yet to come.

I need to play Mega Turrican and/or Universal Soldier on the Genesis/Mega Drive after seeing this video and CGQ playing Universal Soldier.  Also, gotta say, I love these re-reviews and look forward to many more yet to come.

They don't like bright light, you shouldn't get them wet and and never feed them after midnight! Oh and there are Gremlins 2!

Was this a waste of a license? To me it seems that it could have been so much more.

Good episode but a crap game from the looks and reviews of it, you guys' included.  Hopefully next week's game is a better one.

Delve into the exciting world of international shipping with Ports Of Call on the Amiga. Does it deliver on its promises or should all copies be thrown overboard?

Good episode.  Seemed like a good game for the Amiga when it came out back in 1987.  However, lots of other games along this line have passed it by.  Still, a nice little game all things considered.  Keep up the great work fellas.

Time for more Public Domania! Reviews of 2 PD games on the Commodore Amiga! This time it is BiPlane Duel and Alianator.
 
Here's the video link: https://youtu.be/fRTF8_VEqM4
Here's the audio only link: https://anchor.fm/amigospodcast
 
Perfect, lazy Sunday afternoon viewing.

Damn good show this week.  Gotta say Alianator looked really good and would've been an excellent game to experience back in the day.  Gotta love PD games as you can find quite a few gems.  Take care and keep up the great work.

Diggers.jpg.9f9f4634668cc7a16c60fd8aec643af9.jpg

 

This week John and Aaron check out Diggers, a game that was bundled with the CD32. Was it worthy?
Audio only version: https://anchor.fm/amigospodcast
Plus there is the usual Amiga News roundup and the Patreon Band gets together for one last time (before they change their name).

Another week, another game that should have been a lot better.  Shame as Diggers seem to have a pretty good premise.  Oh well, next!

Yeah, so much promise in this one. I really wanted to like it.

Were the initial reviews of Primal Rage on the Amiga too harsh? Did you know about the 2 button control system? Join Aaron and guest host The Brent as they look at this prehistoric fighter.
 
Full video review is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WSXBAxAAwc
 
Audio only is here: https://anchor.fm/amigospodcast

Primal Rage is an interesting fighting game with some cool aspects.  However, it could and/or should have been a lot better than what it turned out to be.  Not great, but not totally horrendous either imo.

Hunter.jpg.d1088de24b18515cfd69eb2b33ea9c2c.jpg

 

A 3D open world game on the Amiga way back in 1991? Was Hunter worth tracking down?
 
 

Short answer, yes.  Hunter has that early 90s 3-D graphics vibe to it that (in some ways) holds up well today.  Also, with the different game modes that means that there is replayability here, too.  Definitely one that looks very worthy of checking out.
