I've got a Lynx too. Haven't played Warbirds yet, but Blue Lightning impressed me quite a bit. (It's kinda sad that the Lynx version is better than the Jag cd one :P ) Funny thing is, I never had Blue Lightning when the Lynx was in production ... I only picked it up about a year ago actually. Still, even at that late date, I could appreciate how advanced it was at the time ... even more so since it was on a handheld unit! :)
I was confused as to why all the other kids were drooling over their game boys when I had that full-colored puppy. But, nowadays I've realized that game boy's lame puke green definitely had the battery life upper hand. Nuts.

Yeah, the battery life on the Lynx wasn't so hot (it did improve slightly w/the second model) Still, my buddy had a Game Gear and I don't remember it being much better in the battery department. I guess color handhelds at the time could only do so much.
Most wanted - Eye of Typhoon, 3DO Magazines issues #14 & #15, Pro Stadium, Defcon 5
