Retro Review – Contra 4 (DS)

I haven’t played that many Contra games. Prior to Contra 4 the only Contra game I’ve had any real previous experience with is Operation C for the Game Boy and a little Contra III too on the SNES. Contra 4 feels right at home with those games. As the name of the game indicates this is a direct sequel to Contra III: The Alien Wars. So expect to fight against never ending hordes of various military t...

Retro Review – Contra 4 (DS)

At the time of its original release this was only the second portable Contra game in the series. Contra 4 does an amazing job at being both new and nostalgic at the same time. It is able to hit all the things that make a Contra game fun to play while also adding something to the series. And for player looking for a challenge Contra 4 delivers. This game is definitely recommended for anyone that wa...

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 not coming to the Wii U?

Retro-rich Contra Rebirth Konami Codes WiiWare May 12

But the completely new Contra title is only going to be available in Japan. Figures! Still, it would not be a surprise at all if the $10 title made its way Stateside after the success of other retro re-imaginings like Mega Man 9 (but not so much Gradius–corny!).

Konami, EA, and Ubisoft have titles on the way?

Castlevania Judgement New Characters!

So it seems that more characters are coming to join the fray of whip slashing, sword swinging, and spear piercing. It is of no surprise to see Death creep in to join the fight to condemn the souls of the Belmont Clan.

Igarashi considering 2D Castlevania WiiWare title

First WiiWare got Mega Man 9. Then it got Gradius Rebirth. And today it might get… Castlevania? Sure, why not! Castlevania guru Igarashi said as much in interviews with MTV and Wired this week, and I for one welcome yet another return to our roots, should it come to pass. “I’m definitely interested in WiiWare and I think it’s one of the areas that 2D can still be very stron...
