Haha, great post and funny photo dude!
When I first got my Lynx with California Games I thought that there was something wrong with the game or that only I got a demo or something, because it only had four events compared to other ports. I was a little let down at first, but over time California Games has proven to be one of the best Lynx titles. It's colorful, the music is great, it's truly pick up and play at any time, and the graphics are impressive. BMX and surfing are my favourites, but I usually play a round of half pipe as well to listen to the catchy 80s music and have a look at the fantastic scaling effect. Haven't been able to learn how to play half pipe in soon 30 years, the only thing I know is how to do a turn at the correct time! Can someone please explain to me how to play the half pipe event on the Lynx!?
It's pretty evident when following the forum here at AtariAge over the years, that it's a well liked game by lots and lots of Lynx enthusiasts.
Btw. about the Gauntlet episode (high quality, great podcast once again) I've tried to like Gauntlet many times, the intro music and character select is so nice, but never being able to get into it. Shinto's positive review of it really made me want to give it yet another chance, at least if I find someone to comlynx the game with!
