Replayability usually refers to replaying the same thing, not playing a different branch.

Hard Coprs hate = lame and off topic

I don't hate Hard Corps. Sure, it's good, but I think it's pretty overrated and there are other good Contra titles out there. And that's all I'm going to say about it.

But it is the same thing? No matter what branch you take you're still playing darius or the objectively coolest contra game.

I agree, it's overrated as all hell, but it also happens to be really damn good.

xxx1993 what have you done :o Now I've got to fight Strider IRL for my mint NTSCJ copy Image to see whose BATTLE SPIRIT CLOTH is best :shock:

There is some value in bringing up (THE) Hard Corps here, as circa 1993 Nobuya Nakazato was very much all-in on the "branches = XTREEM REPLAY" mindset. I respectfully differ with the old master though. I'd prefer a single, carefully calibrated course meant for gradual mastery and performance play over time. Yeah the noobs will "one and done" it, but FUCK EM. Easy to say when nothing is on the line I know. The man's gotta eat. :oops:

A game you can have fun playing over and over… does such a thing exist?!


Y-yes my lord, you directed a few! >_>

Branches can surely work but you better not waste my motherfucking time, and by that I mean keep standards up across the board and GET THAT JUNGLE BOSS OUTTA MY FACE YOU MOTHERFUCKER Image Again THC isn't the best ambassador of the approach as frankly it needed tightening up / shuffling around to meet its full potential.

It use to be overrated... now it's just shit on whenever it gets mentioned these days (in here). Which it doesn't deserve, especially with things like Legacy of War farting around.

BIL, was it your copy of HC I bought off here (years ago)?

Nope, only MD game I ever sold on here was Dahna and even though it's kind of a crummy game, I regret even that. :cool: My copy is on sale for the low price of CHOKE ON EM dollars and PRY IT OUTTA MY COLD DEAD HANDS cents. :wink:

Overrated or not, Hard Corps is still amazing and the best Contra game.

That's a fact, you can look it up.

No, that is NOT a fact. It's just an opinion from people like you. Know the difference between fact and opinion. It'll be sad if you don't.

Might want to start, as you've now got at least one mod's undivided attention.

Thank you. I was worried I wouldn't be able to find anything because none of the gaming sites I usually go to haven't posted anything yet.

I assume it's because M2 didn't send out a formal press-release and journalists are lazy asshats that were too lazy to compile the info themselves, but I dunno. Could be totally wrong on that.

I seriously hope that isn’t the only info we have, though. I was expecting some details about the plot, or maybe a trailer.

Famitsu has a report on the event that includes some new info on Aleste Branch: https://www.famitsu.com/news/201909/09182913.html

The somewhat strange long nose of the ship design is now explained by the weapon power up which mount alongside. They look cool!

Seems like they took the Giga Wang jokes too literally with that first one

The idea sounds great on paper but that nose still looks dumb even with the weapon mods surrounding it

I'm actually feeling excited with this more than R-Type Final 2. I just can't wait to see what more they have in store for this.

First a new R-Type Final game announced, and now a new Aleste game.

Life's sweet.
