Hi guys,

Some of you might know me Old School Game Blog. I started that blog back in 2011. I'm still posting and it's a lot of fun. :)

However, I decided to start another blog which only focuses on AmigaOS 4 and gaming. It's called "Gaming on AmigaOS 4".

amigaos4gaming.wordpress.com

I started it today and it only has a few posts, but more content will be added daily. I have quite a bit of AmigaOS 4 content on OSGB, so might lend a bit from there to start with. ;)

Anyhow, hope you'd like to pop in to have a look. Thanks.

Cool. Thanks for your blog. Been wondering what I can play on my AmigaOne.

Will you be doing both?

Nice blog!

Don´t forget emulators, there are many "alien" games one can play thanks to emulation (Diablo via FPSE or Populous 2 via DosBox are my favourites ).

Thanks for the heads-up. :) I had forgotten about emulation, so will definitely write about this.

Your blog looks interesting, and has an RSS feed thanks to WordPress, so I will be following it

@AmigaOldskooler

As i mainly use my OS4 machine for Gaming, I too have bookmarked your blog and looking forward to reading your future posts. There are quite a few hundred games out there for Amiga OS 4 which can be downloaded from various sources like os4depot, Huno PPC's website, Amigasoft.net, Aminet, once you add in the various emulators available, the selection is quite impressive especially for a machine with such a small installed userbase.

@outrun1978

Many thanks, Outrun1978. :) I'm looking forward to delve into the world of games.. hehe.. One of my favorites on 4.1 is actually Battle for Wesnoth. Great strategy game with atmospheric music, story etc. So will do a review of that one later on. Now I focus on games I haven't tried before.

@AmigaOldskooler

following your review , I downloaded ScummVM myself last night and had a bit of a play around with Beneath a Steel Sky and Flight of the Amazon Queen thanks for the handy links on your review as it was quite easy to set up!
