    Yes, yes you should, because without you, the alien war will surely bring down the last hopes of humanity.

    Looks pretty good.
    I wonder if there will be an XBLA or PSN version.

    It's a WiiWare title.
    2D Contra -new sprites and all.

    Anybody that does not post about this is a loser. It's fucking Contra, for Gods' sake. No silly 2 screens, no PS bullshit, you run to the right, and kill everything that moves. If you call yourself a man, you should play this.

    up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, a, b, start, bitches.

    Looks like Alien Wars, and that is a good thing. It would be nice if there was also going to be a new Castlevania (SON style) for the Wii.

    Word! As for 4, it is pretty great--similar to the early Contras in all the ways that matter. Main difference being a grappling hook thing that you have to use from time to time. But. . .H-A-R-D. I never play games on easy mode, but that was the only way I could beat 4. Even though I didn't get the ending, it was a great feeling of accomplishment finally getting through.

    Just like previous Contras, you die in one hit, and here you have about 5 lives and 5 continues, and that's it (as far as I know, no 30 man codes). And the normal mode is, as mentioned before, freakin' tough. You get crappier weapon upgrades, which may be the only difference, but it does make a huge difference when you can no longer defeat bosses with the awesome "easy mode" laser in about 15 seconds.

    Then you must have hated the NES :) 

    Hard = good. Video games nowadays are waaaaaay too freakin' easy. If you play your Resident Evils or Grand Theft Autos or whatever, you can pretty much breeze through, dying only a handful of times. You put in freakin' Ghosts n Goblins or Ninja Gaiden for the NES? Prepare to die hundreds and hundreds of times. Tired of playing? That's fine. But when you go back to it--start at the beginning mother f**ker!! Ah, the good old days.
