And I feel that much older on this day.

Meeee too.

So many childhood hours dumped into contra. Good times.

We're not old... we're seasoned veterans :D

I played so much Contra with friends in the arcade and on NES. One of the best two player experiences of that era.

SaiyanFury1476d ago

I'm 34 and I'm in the best shape I've been in my life so I certainly don't feel old, haha. That said, I have the game on my SD console setup with my original NES and I play it frequently. I love how the game never gets old. Sometimes I play it here on my laptop via emulation.

I`m still playing it regularly on my NES. looks like crap on my hdtv, but feels great with the real console.

ashame Konami or Nintendo not willing to make 25th Anniversity game for wii-U or Contra Game PERIOD for wii-U......

with that being said: i feel older as well lol

WII-U could really capitalize on Contra,battle toads,streets of rage,strider,bad guys,clay fighter,G-darius,Gradius,R-typ e so forth.
why wish all this when we can protest to Nintendo.

I've been trying to find a copy of this game in some of the local retro gaming stores, but I can't seem to find one where the label on the cartridge is in good condition.

NintendoLegend1477d ago

Hm. I have an extra copy in excellent shape, if you'd like to email and discuss further: thenintendolegend[at]gmail[dot ]com
