Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Lynx, anyone?

So I was digging through some old attic boxes and discovered a good ol' fashioned blast-from-Atari's-past, the Atari Lynx:

Seeing as my DS is currently residing in Santa Barbara, and PAX is a gaming convention, I figured I might bring this bad boy along for the ride, see how many people recognize it :P

Only problem is, I've only one game for it (Rampart). As much fun as it is, variety is the spice of life, so if by a longshot anyone has any other Lynx games gathering dust (or maybe even another Lynx+cord with which to challenge me?:winky:), feel free to bring 'em along so we can party like it's 1989 8-)

See y'all tomorrow!

    You might be able to get some Lynx games from Pink Godzilla. They probably won't drag lynx games to their booth, but they have more obscure crap at their store, which is like 10 minutes from the convention center.

    Hooray for the Internetz - except they also say no lynx at Pink Godzilla...well, worth checking in person anyway.

    Doh! Well you can ask. I doubt they would turn somebody down if they tried to trade some Lynx games in.

    *Warning, Historical Content!*

    The Lynx was actually designed to be ambidexterous - you could play this sucker equally as good if you were left-handed as if you were right! The two bottom buttons were for left-handed players - when flipped around, they are on top, easily accessible.

    (And, of course, it was designed to look rad - 'specially with those separate on-off switches 8-))

    Kwisatz, out!
