And the last sentence of my post was explaining that even a sidescroller can still be succesful on a home console (and much better due to superior hardware).

What really pissed me off was when announcements were made about Castlevania: The Dracula X Chronicles, being released for the PSP, a system better known for homebrews and UMD movies (sales are declining, too) than for having decent games. Konami goes to great lengths to keep Rondo of Blood off the net (and from being downloaded properly) despite the cries of fans, and then they put it on the PSP, of all systems. I know that home console sidescrollers and 2D games are a rarity these days, but looking how Casltevania: Symphony of the Night did on probaby the most powerful home console for it's day (and even back then the sidescroller was on the decline).
What does this have to do with contra? SHUTUP!

Fathom Zero Hahahhahahahahahah... the benefits of owning both handhelds are priceless.

Of course, I still need to get the R4DS.

EDIT: Contra Screenies!

Mockery WHY ARE WE YELLING

Fathom Zero YEHA BRO! THE PSP IS THE BE-ALL-END-ALL OF HANDHELDS THE DS TOTALLY SUCKS THATS WHY I BOUGHT ONE AND POKEMON DIAMOND AND LUNAR KNIGHTS AND METROID PRIME AND WILL PROBABLY GET THIS GAME TOO BECAUSE I HATE IT SO MUCH.

YEAH I'M A PICKY BASTARD. YES I LIKE AND DISLIKE THINGS, AND AT THE SAME TIME NO LESS.

YES I'M IGNORANT. But I don't care. Because we are obviously not on the same page.
Jul 12th, 2007 01:28 AM
Chojin Ironically, I really don't care too much about this game :<
Jul 12th, 2007 01:27 AM
Chojin I ESPECIALLY ENJOY THE NEW PSP LITE BECAUSE IT IS LIGHTER THAN THE ORIGINAL PSP AND THAT WAS A REAL PROBLEM LET ME TELL YOU I CAN'T EXPRESS HOW GLAD I AM WE THOUGHT OF IT BEFORE THOSE FUN-RAPISTS AT NINTENDO WRESTLED ALL THE TRADITION OUT OF IT

MarioRPG The original Contra all the way for me. Nothing like blasting aliens with a bud, and relying on the code.
Jul 7th, 2007 01:16 PM
darkvare damn i loved contra i even got the one from the xbox live arcade. but i like more contra alien wars
Jul 4th, 2007 01:14 PM
ArrowX I for one cant fucking wait. I love these games. They take me back to a simpler time when me and the kid next door would unhook his SNES so we could play contra for hours on end on his NES.

GADZOOKS That was a rant?
Jul 3rd, 2007 09:29 PM
Girl Drink Drunk I wasnt trying to be "nonconformist" or s "rebel": Im just obviously not that fond of handhelds. Anyways, out of respect for RoG, I'll halt my rant on this thread.
Jul 3rd, 2007 06:28 PM
Supafly345 Wow, your views are controversial and very anti-establishment. So non-conformist and revolutionary, there must be a great mind behind the username.

(lol)
Jul 3rd, 2007 01:50 PM
Girl Drink Drunk Actually, I was refering more to how classic a series gets released on the DS, and in traditional 2D, when they could have better sound quality and have overall better attributes on a home console. Also I HATE THAT FUCKING MINI-SCREEN AND NEW SUPER MARIO BROS. IS OVERRATED.
Jul 3rd, 2007 06:34 AM
noob3 yeah the DS is so inferior that's why it doesn't sell alot or anything everyone thinks it sucks

i mean if it sold alot of copies and was superior maybe good games would get released on it U KNOW WHA'M SAYIN
Jul 3rd, 2007 01:18 AM
GADZOOKS Thank you contra for not looking increasingly more like lame anime ala Castlevania.

My brother owns one, but I dont care for inferior handheld consoles when I could play it on the PS2. The important part here is that I don't like handheld's hogging all the good games. If he does get it, I shall play it begrudgingly.

MarioRPG I read this is Nintendo Power, and it had the title: "A whole new reason to fight over who gets the spread gun". THat was the most truthful thing I've read in recent years.
I can still recall when it'd pop up, both players would jump for it, and one of us always landed on a bullet or water or something dumb.
