Goodbye 1981. Hello 1982

Hello BBC Model A/B – an educational computer released in late 1981/early 1982. Bought by parents for their kids to do their homework on.  Yeah right.

Hello Sinclair ZX Spectrum – the little black box with the dead flesh keyboard was released in April in the UK. 

Hello Commodore 64 – the beige breadbin was released in August in the USA.

Hello Atari 5200 – supposed replacement for the Atari 2600.  Released in North America in November and came with the world’s most unergonomic controllers.

Hello hormones – I became a teenager in June.

I had hoped to use this page to name some of the 1982 releases I was looking forward to playing but there was only one….

And that’s coming up next….
