Happy holidays, everyone!


I'll give this a shot, since I read this Lynx forum regularly and post every once in a while.


[*]Sex: Not as often as I'd prefer it to be.

[*]Age: Old enough to know better, young enough to keep on going nonetheless.

[*]Country: United States

[*]Collects for: Lynx, Supervision, Gamate, Mega Duck/Cougar Boy, Game.com, Game Master, Game King, Virtual Boy, Megadrive/Genesis (mildly) ... I could keep going but I think that's just about enough.

[*]Favorite game developer: C&E Inc. (Taiwan), original creators of Super Fighter.

[*]Favorite game (any system): An easy tie between Super Fighter (IBM-PC; DOS), Alone in the Dark (IBM-PC; DOS) and Neuromancer (Apple II).

[*]Top five Lynx games (in no particular order): Fat Bobby, Toki, Qix, Double Dragon, Robotron: 2084.

[*]Occupation: I work, all right.

[*]TV-shows: I don't really watch television, but the original (1980's) G.I. Joe cartoon is an awesome reflection of society. I also like Speed Racer, because he says, "Oh" and freaks out, anytime something happens.

[*]Music: Ad-Lib OPL2 music from IBM-PC (DOS) games is delightful.

[*]Most anticipated Lynx game: Ultravore would be nice. Hear that, Carl? Heh, heh.

[*]Other collecting habits: I collect dust without trying. Dust really seems to have an attachment to me.

[*]Hobbies/refreshing activities: videogame development, scarfing food, rolling my eyes at high speeds.


There you go. That was actually amusing. :roll: See? I just love rolling those eyes.
