No Super Contra, but any Contra is better than none

Contra Shattered Soldier Infiltrates PSN This Week

When I play 2 player side scrolling shooters I just want to hang from a missile with a pal, is that too much to ask? Apparently not with the Contra series, as this is one of the selling points of the series.  You can now get your hands on the undercarriage of a SAM in the latest port of the PlayStation 2's Contra Shattered Solider on PSN.

Contraption Maker Announced by Incredible Machine Devs

Everybody remember The Incredible Machine series? Way back in the early to mid 90s, a series of puzzle games was released that essentially let you build your own Rube Goldberg devices. You know, the ones that involve mallets hitting marbles that roll down ramps to wake up a chicken whose flapping wings hit a lever that drops a bag of flour on top of a scale that tips and turns the light switch off. That sort of thing. The team behind those classic games is working on Contraption Maker, a spiritual sequel to The Incredible Machine that promises to bring back the same free-form puzzle solving we fell for back in the good old days.

New Screens for Contra Sequel, Hard Corps: Uprising

Last summer we brought you our hands-on preview of the new Contra sequel.  Hard Corps: Uprising may be losing the 'Contra' prefix, but the same run and gun co-op action will be present.  Konami's new title will be available for download on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.  Players will take control of super soldiers Bahamut and Krystal.  But who cares about the characters?  Old favorites like the Spread Gun and Laser will return, and let's face it, getting that big winged "S" is what you really remember from the early games.

Growing Up 8-Bit at Amazon/Barnes and Noble

Nick (bapenguin) has been nice enough to let me promote the ebook I published close to 2 months ago called Growing Up 8-Bit.  The book is available for download from Amazon as well as Barnes and Noble for $2.99.  You do not need a Kindle or Nook to read the book, both sites have clients available for a variety of computing and mobile platforms.  There is also an 8-page PDF sample I have put online for people to look at. It contains the early pages of the book after the Table of Contents.
