Congrats to Konami and WayForward for keeping their fucking heads screwed on and making the box art just as much of an early-Contra homage as the game as demoed thusfar has been.

GameCrazy is giving a free 20th Anniversary Pack with pre-orders in the USA. Might be similar to that awesome Castlevania one?

how can anyone's wallet survive this hoilday season?

it's too much, there are like 12 games I'd consider "must-have" in Q4 alone.

I hate having to be selective but I have no choice, I guess 'll get this sometime in early 2008.

In all the screenshots and movies and artwork, they have totally nailed the OG Contra style. Good job. Can't wait for this game. I hope it's uh, kind of longer than the old games, or at least offers compelling reasons to replay it repeatably.

So one of the "unique selling points" implies that it's better than Contra 3.

NP said 4 player co-op and we saw screens with 4 players but I guess it didn't work out.

2 player is still awesome though.

12? Are you kidding me? That's all? Here's what I have on my list from September-December (bolded what I've already picked up):

DS: Drawn to Life, Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Phoenix Wright 3, Contra 4, Front Mission DS, Ninja Gaiden DS, Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker, FFXII: Revenant Wings, Professor Layton... (Plus, lesser must-haves: DK Jungle Climber, Chibi-Robo, Mario Party DS, Cooking Mama 2, Ontamarama, Mega Man ZX Advent, Looney Tunes: Duck Amuck, Flash Focus, Master of Illusion)

PSP: FFT, Castlevania: DX, Disgaea, Silent Hill: Origins

Wii: Batallion Wars 2, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros Brawl, Nights (Lesser: Lego Star Wars Complete, Mario & Sonic, Ghost Squad, RE: UC, Mercury Meltdown Revolution, Victorious Boxers Revolution)

X360: Halo 3, Orange Box, Mass Effect (Lesser: Beautiful Katamari)

PS2: Soul Cradle

Multiplatform: Thrillville 2, Manhunt 2, Guitar Hero 3, Rock Band, The Simpsons Game, Need for Speed Pro Street, Kane and Lynch, Call of Duty 4

I don't do much PC gaming and I don't own a PS3. I guess if I owned a PS3, I'd be picking up Ratchet and Clank, Folklore, BlackSite, UT3, Haze...

This is fantastic. First day for me for sure.

By the way, I beat the first Contra without dying a single time. Took me a really damn long time to do it, many weeks of practice. Totally worth it.

Did you expect the marketing one-sheet to tell retailers, "Almost as good as Contra III!" Of course not. It's just like how every Sonic is "the fastest one yet!"
