    I used to rock at the original Contra and it's sequel Super C back in the day, and i've been reading up on this new incarnation of my old favorite...it's going to kick ass!
    Hurry up October!

    It does look very cool. Let's hope it's good and it sells well so we can get some 2-D gaming goodness on the next gen consoles.

    I'm totally with you guys, I hope it does really well. There is nothing wrong with a 3d rendered 2d game. In fact I hope the style takes off, might inspire Sunsoft to do a nextgen Blaster Master that way...

    Is the game Midnight Resistance considered a proper sequel to Contra?

    The only thing I'm concerned about with the new contra is that there aren't any powerups. You have your 3 weapons and thats it.

    I'm really looking forward to this game. Contra is one of my all-time favorite games. I'm thrilled that Konami has kept it 2D.

    Mike, I hadn't heard about only being able to use 3 weapons. Got any more info on that?

    Thanks for the link Mike.

    Having only 3 weapons is a bit of a bummer, but the game still looks great. It's odd having all 3 at the same time, even though Contra for SNES allowed you to switch back and forth between 2 weapons.

    I'm glad someone metioned the old cheat code for getting the 30 extra men, good memory! [​IMG] However I got to the point where I could defeat the game AND turn it around with only my first guy! [​IMG]

    That Contra for SNES was the best one IMHO! Anybody ever play the one they made for PS1? The overhead view one? It really sucked a big one.
