Hey, at least I reformatted it and put it inside code tags so you should get a regular looking post...

I wondered how you did that... :)

Note to self: Handy tip Number 1001... :)

(good job it wasn't written on paper, or that would be the end of the Amazon Rain Forest...)

I'm pretty sure there's a Dead Parrot one somewhere too ;)

Indeed it is a fantastic game, but you need to delve back further into the cyberpunk genre and recall a bullfrog classic...

So that's not you in that avatar then. I thought you made it yourself  :)

Code: [Select]
Kesa walks in the Henry Draco's Amiga Hardware shop and walks past the tracker hero player.

Kesa: Good morning.

Draco: Good morning, sir. Welcome to the National Amiga Hardware Emporium!

Kesa: Ah, thank you, my good man.

Draco: What can I do for you, Sir?

Kesa: Well, I was, uh, sitting in the public library on Thurmon Street just now, skimming
through "Total Amiga Assembler" by Paul Overaa, and I suddenly came over all consumerish.

Draco: Consumerish, sir?

Kesa: Impulsively.

Draco: Eh?

Kesa: 'Ee, Ah wanted to buy an Amiga like!

Draco: Ah, a purchase!

Kesa: In a nutshell. And I thought to myself, "a little 68000 compatible will do the trick,"
so, I curtailed my Overaan activites, sallied forth, and infiltrated your place of purveyance
to negotiate the vending of some chequered collectables!

Draco: Come again?

Kesa: I want to buy some stuff or a miggy.

Draco: Oh, I thought you were complaining about the tracker hero player!

Kesa: Oh, heaven forbid: I am one who delights in all manifestations of the four-channel
muse!

Draco: Sorry?

Kesa: 'Ooo, Ah lahk a nice mod, 'yer forced too!

Draco: So he can go on playing, can he?

Kesa: Most certainly! Now then, some hardware please, my good man.

Draco: Certainly, sir. What would you like?

Kesa: Well, eh, how about a little A600?

Draco: I'm, afraid we're fresh out of A600's, sir.

Kesa: Oh, never mind, how are you on basic minimigs?

Draco: I'm afraid we never have them at the end of the week, sir, we get 'em fresh
on Monday.

Kesa: Tish tish. No matter. Well, stout yeoman, a four megabyte Blizzard 1220 turbo,
if you please.

Draco: Ah! they've been on order, for two weeks, sir. Was expecting them this morning.

Kesa: 'T's Not my lucky day, is it? Aah, A3000?

Draco: Sorry, sir.

Kesa: FPGA Arcade?

Draco: Normally, sir, yes. Today the van broke down.

Kesa: Ah. A1000?

Draco: Sorry.

Kesa: A500? A500+?

Draco: No.

Kesa: Any GVP 530's per chance?

Draco: No.

Kesa: A2000?

Draco: No.

Kesa: A1500?

Draco: No.

Kesa: A2000?

Draco: No.

Kesa: A2500?

Draco: No.

Kesa: CDTV?

Draco: (pause) No.

Kesa: A3000?

Kesa: Accelerators. Apollo 1230, 1240, Blizzard 1230, Blizzard 1240 ERC,
Blizzard 1260, 2060, Warp Engine, Cyberstorm, CyberstormPPC?

Draco: No.

Kesa: A4000, perhaps?

Draco: Ah! We have one of those, yes sir.

Kesa: (suprised) You do! Excellent.

Draco: Yessir. It's..ah,.....the battery, it's a bit leaky...

Kesa: Oh, I like 'em leaky.

Draco: Well,.. It's very leaky, actually, sir.

Kesa: No matter. Fetch hither the deus ex machina d'AGA!

Draco: I...think it's a bit leakier than you'll like it, sir.

Kesa: I don't care how incontinentally leaky it is. Hand it over with all speed.

Draco: Oooooooooohhh........!

Kesa: What now?

Draco: The technician's taken it.

Kesa: (pause) Has he.

Draco: She, sir.

(pause)

Kesa: A3000UX?

Draco: No.

Kesa: CD32?

Draco: No.

Kesa: Picasso-II?

Draco: No.

Kesa: Picasso-IV?

Draco: No.

Kesa: Ariadne?

Draco: No, sir.

Kesa: You...do *have* some Amiga hardware, do you?

Draco: (brightly) Of course, sir. It's a Amiga shop, sir. We've got--

Kesa: No no... don't tell me. I'm keen to guess.

Draco: Fair enough.

Kesa: Uuuuuh, Draco?

Draco: Yes?

Kesa: Ah, well, I'll have one of those!

Draco: Oh! I thought you were talking to me, sir. Mister Draco, that's my name.

(pause)

Kesa: Piccolo SD64?

Draco: Uh, not as such.

Kesa: Sunrize AD516?

Draco: no

Kesa: X-Surf?

Draco: no

Kesa: Squirrel SCSI?

Draco: no

Kesa: Generic PCMCIA Ethernet cards?

Draco: Not *today*, sir, no.

(pause)

Kesa: Aah, how about an A1200?

Draco: Well, we don't get much call for them around here, sir.

Kesa: Not much ca--It's the single most popular Amiga model in the world, man!

Draco: Not 'round these parts, sir.

Kesa: and prey, what IS the most popular model 'round these parts'?

Draco: The NatAmi, sir.

Kesa: IS it?

Draco: Oh, yes, sir, it's staggeringly popular in the manor, squire.

Kesa: Is it.

Draco: It's our number one best seller, sir!

Kesa: I see. Uuh...NatAmi, eh?

Draco: Right.

Kesa: All right. Okay. 'Have you got one?' he asked, expecting the answer 'no'.

Draco: I'll have a look, sir... nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnno.

Kesa: It's not much of a Amiga shop, is it?

Draco: Finest in the district!

Kesa: (annoyed) Explain the logic underlying that conclusion, please.

Draco: Well, it's so tidy, sir!

Kesa: It's certainly uncluttered by Amigas....

Draco: (brightly) You haven't asked me about the Walker prototype, sir.

Kesa: Is it worth it?

Draco: Could be....

Kesa: Have you -- WILL YOU SHUT THAT BLOODY MOD PLAYER OFF?!

Draco: (to tracker hero player) Told you so....

Kesa: (slowly) Have you got a Walker prototype?

Draco: No.

Kesa: Figures. Predictable, really I suppose. It was an act of purest optimism
to have posed the question in the first place. Tell me something.

Draco: Yes, sir?

Kesa: Have you in fact got any Amiga hardware at all?

Draco: Oh, yes, sir.

Kesa: Now I'm going to ask you that question once more, and if you answer "no", I'm going
to shoot you through the head. Have you got any Amiga hardware at all?

(pause) Draco: No. Not really, sir.

(gunshot)

Kesa: What a *senseless* waste of human life.

That's really funny!

Franko, when you say "cobblers," are you referring to the shoemakers or the pies?

Just wondering.
