Contra-ION

Is there any game that has managed to stand the test of time as well as Contra has? It’s most likely a game that everyone has played, especially of those of us here locally who grew up with the infamous Golden China console. But two buttons and a D-pad were more than enough for this masterpiece. Tight action, amazing levels and bosses who would take your spread-gun to the limit and back again.

Fortunately, the ever-handy Konami Code made Contra a suicidal blast of fun. It’s a code that is most likely hammered into your DNA by now, and something that I desperately wish would work in real life. But everyone looks at me like I’m some kind of a madman when I look up twice, look down twice and start jumping around…

In Other News: Pokémon really is a license to print money, Conan tells us what is best in life and there can be only one more director for the Highlander reboot.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because ACT NOW AND GET 65% OFF THE REST OF THIS JOKE ONLY TODAY ON BLACK FRIDAY SPEND CONSUME.

  1. I actually thought about going to the store to buy the new Pokemon, then remembered it’s Black Friday.

    To all of you in Jhb, hope you have life jackets handy.
