I couldn't find a Sega CD so I bought a PS4 instead.

Bad decision! Sega CD is so much better than the PS4. Well, it does have more games...

Good game. However, I always thought the final level where you had to perform erotic asphyxiation successfully was always a little bit weird.

Your lack of support for the superior Dreamcast disgusts me.

Well, most of us can't afford a Dreamcast so we have to work on a level just underneath that.

Re: ** PLEASE READ ** "Console Warriors" you are now on alert

? I thought console wars went away years ago. Guess its more of an immaturity thing. All 3 are pretty bad ass IMO......having recently played games on them....im only going with Xbox one because of my live account....this may be the first Gen where I buy more than one console.

I'm,only pissed at exclusive titles,now....give me metal gear on Xbox one dammit!

Yeah, I'm pretty sure Metal Gear Solid and Metal Gear Solid 4 are the only ones still exclusive to Sony at this point.

Careful. Any one of the 20ish regular posters here might be a huge Jaguar fanboy and get super butt hurt. And then we'll end up with a "be nice to Jaguar" thread. And it will probably be stickied.

Random, boring, yet fun-to-me fact: my best friend from back when I was growing up bought an Atari Lynx close to launch, and I quickly followed suit. I mean, everyone the world over was obviously going to take advantage of that whole ComLynx networking thing, right? I never met anyone with a Lynx other than the two of us...or, at least, no one who talked about it / played it / whatever.

I learned my lesson. (I put $100 of my own money -- won on a Nickelodeon game show! -- towards the Lynx, and that might as well have been $30,000,000 to my seventh grade self in 1990.) Alan didn't, and he bought a Jaguar at launch. Oh well.

I remember my cousins buying a Jaguar a couple summers later when KB Toys was closing them out for $20.

I don't know why I had kind of a "grrr" reaction to my Lynx at the time since I had a pretty healthy library of games I liked a lot, and I definitely got plenty of use out of it. I guess it was the fact that multiplayer was a big selling point for me but never really took off, and the Lynx didn't have the franchises I wanted to play the most. There were good games, but they weren't games that excited my twelve year old self.

Yes. Except for Tempest 2000. Just bought a rotary controller and this game rules again.

I still own four Atari Lynxes. Although they've been in storage for years and I probably left batteries in most of them so who knows if they'll still work.

But anyway, I bought one at launch too. I remember thinking how obviously better it was than the Gameboy and I looked forward to years of Atari dominance. Doh!

I bought it and a game at Toys R Us, and something glitched with the register with the brand new Lynx package priced at like $10. I never paid for and walked out of a store faster.

I didn't have any other friends with a Lynx, so I quickly bought a second and had two carts of all the best comlynx games like Warbirds and Slime World. I brought them to school all the time and my friends and I enjoyed them for years.

Re: ** PLEASE READ ** "Console Warriors" you are now on alert

Make the Grade. They didn't air the part where I cried. I got the most questions right (I think)! The stupid physical challenges (or whatever they called 'em on this show) screwed me over. Whoever got first place in the physical challenges could take someone else's points, so I'd be first place then back to third. Work my way up, then back down. I was hysterically bad. In one, we were supposed to hit a dartboard with a bean bag mice catapult, and whoever hit it the most won. My record: 0. In the other, we had to use a winch/crane thing to pick up paper mache "moon rocks" off a stand, carry them across the floor, and dropped them in a bucket. I wound up grabbing the entire stand and was dragging it across a concrete soundstage floor. Oh, it was bad. Despite what it said when the show aired, I won $100, an electronic spell checker, the ugliest square bookbag you've ever seen, and...I think that might've been it. This was before my growth spurt, and I was so short that my head barely poked out over the podium. If you're ever watching old episodes and see a scrawny little kid go on about how awesome X-Men comics are, that's me.
