It appears that there may be a chance a brand new Contra game could be in development from Konami. This could be a very stunning development, as despite Konami making record profits five years in a row, their pipeline for new projects have been dry. Aside from Super Bomberman R, (an underrated game), Pro Evolution Soccer and Metal Gear Survive (a game…Continue

The mountains of feedback to the Sonic the Hedgehog trailer released back in late April was so severe that it was virtually impossible for anyone at Paramount to notice. To say fans were less than happy with the CGI mockup of the Blue Bomber would be a gross understatement. Filmmaker Jeff Fowler may avoid a catastrophic directorial debut by deciding…Continue

Week 3 of Contra Month, it's arguably the most popular game of the 8 to 16-bit Contra series. Being the first entry on the 16 bit platform, The Alien Wars ups the ante with more mid bosses, bigger stage bosses, and even more daunting stages. In my eyes, this game changed Contra forever. I don't mean that in a bad way, necessarily. Mind you, this isn't…Continue

Milton Bradley is going to take you back to the past...
Contra Month continues with this little beast of a game. Operation C is one monster of a game for Nintendo's little handheld. The concept of a Gameboy or having your video games on the go was quite a luxury, and while it didn't quite pack the power of the NES, there were more than quality titles on it. Konami's development of Operation C ranks as one…Continue

However, one of my favorite horror movies ever was "Stephen King's IT". I have read the book, I have…Continue

The original Contra on NES is easily one of the most beloved games in the library. So much that it overshadows what I think is a slightly superior sequel in Super C. The base games are identical in terms of gameplay, but Super C throws a little more at you with its robust challenge and established mini bosses provides. Even the music sounds, if I were to coin…Continue
