My first Kick Off online game

4 01 2010

After realisising, that I had autofire on, I finally got into the game. Andy let me practise palying (so I more or less played alone) and I managed to score 4 goals. It’s total different to normal Kick Off, but It seems to be funny.


My first entry in the Lynx HSC at Atariage

3 01 2010

31716, not a great score at Qix, but it was fun to play on the Lynx and also great to take part on other offline tournaments.

The Amiga arrives in the media rack

3 01 2010

Today I ordered my media rack:


– Amiga CD32:

Left the rack:

– A Falcon 030: Therefor I will put some time to get MF and Frog up and running at the main desk.

The first game I played on the CD32 was Sensible Soccer:

Seems that the austrian curse followed me 🙂 Lost 1-2 against the Färoer Islands. At least Klinsmann scored the 1:0.

It could only be better in 2010 for my best friend MF

Thorn to pieces 🙂

MF before the reborn

But a falcon is wll known for rising from the ashes!

I will put it in a new case. But before I have to install a new HD (the one top left) to replace the old one, who does not fit into the original case.

Also have to replace the Floppy

Happy new Kick Off year / Frohes neues Kick Off Jahr

1 01 2010

Like 2 years ago Jan K and I met at newjears eve, to score the  first goal in 2010. At the KO Gathering board I tried to place some bets to become a rich man, but others could do betting tricks better than me

So after some hours of Kick Off training, some 2-3 minutes after midnight we started the game. I had kick off, and shame on me, I did a Kick Off lob and it wors, and the question was answered after 4 seconds:

First Kick Off scorer 2010: Thorsten B

First Kick Off goal 2010

But then Jan K who boast the turbo and scored 2 goals in a row. So the

First halftime winner of 2010: Jan K

Jan K's first Kick Off goal 2010

In the second half I really had to fight, but I managed a 3-2 victory in the end:

First Kick Off game winner 2010: Thorsten B

First victory 2010

After this historical moment, we need a Kick Off break and tried out some other football games.

We already played Pro Evolution Soccer 09 on the Wii I got some days before, but we failed in the second trainings session :-(. But the game looks cool, and I have to spend some more time on it.

With PES09 I also got Fifa 09, to train for the upcomming World greates Shamie tournament with WGS Andreas K. After we found out, that the good old Game Cube controllers works much better then the Wii controller, we had some nice games. Jan K scored the only goal, a penalty, but beside that we were able to get into the game a bit.

Now it was time for some football break. We load Steve Cambers Dogfight on my STE.


Last but not least, we played Sensible Soccer on the CD32. So I could say:

First Sensible soccer goal 2010: Thorsten B (own goal made by a North Ireland striker against the Republic of Irland)

Later I scored 3 real goals with Northern Irleand!

Now we had some comparissons to Kick Off, so it was time to play it again, cause Kick Off is still our favorite.

So a happy new year to all of you who read this, a lot of fair 🙂 matches in 2010.
