Anybody know if Contra 4 was originally supposed to come out for the SNES? On the Konami poster is says something about coming soon Contra 4?

Contra III was first announced as "Super Contra IV". I think it was announced in Nintendo Power, and I know it was listed under that name under the "Coming Soon" section in Nintendo's Super NES Player's Guide. (a book reviewing all the games released in 1991, and giving hints on what they must've felt were the better games. Must've been published in early 1992 as I noticed one of the A Link to the Past screenshots is a beta screen, specifically Link fighting five blue Armos Knights and one red one at the same time.)

Though I've wondered what Contra III would've been if that happened. Perhaps they were originally counting Operation C as the third game?
I know Contra Force wasn't released until late the same year (and even then was a hack of a canceled Famicom game).

KingMike, one of the retro Nintendo guru's, here's a picture of the poster that is in my Contra III box that I was referring too.

I get the impression from this that Konami was thinking about releasing another Contra game for the SNES on top of Contra III but I wonder if it just got scrapped? Or maybe it just became Contra Hard Corps for the Genesis?

most of my trusted friends live out of the city that are into retro gaming...people would want me to constantly change games back and fourth to show them, and it takes a little work for me if i had to do that because, each time i put a new one in a system i clean it to keep contamination out of everything. guess its more of a chore than anything else. and i have a rule:never change a game out until its been beat. no matter what. my ocd has helped me with things like this lol. but if you lived by me id let you in the gameroom. i talk about retro games all day and night. its my life. id rather tell/show you in person what i have than post pics on here though

You are so OCD! :D But I totally don't blame you about cleaning your games before using them to keep out contamination. I love these classics systems and cartridges and if my orginal SNES got jacked up I would be seriously depressed. That is one hardcore rule you have about not changing out your game until they are beat. I could never do that. Haha... I would for sure check out yoru secret sauce gameroom if we were in the same city;suppose you are not in Seattle huh? :D What other sites do you go to for retro games?

@Tasuki: I hear you about having to save for Christmas. That sucks about your acocunt having been hacked into. Hopefully thatt gets resolved.

@Waveboy: It seems like the that last time you bought your retro Back to the Future, the movie was still in the theatres! ;) But you bought a Gamecube huh? Never had one of those and I totally missed out everything the purple box was about. I was in my beyond Nintendo phase during that time thinking I was cool like the ice cream man.

I don't like buying new/current games without really playing or completing them but retro titles on the other Michael Jackson white gloved hand are a whole different mutant animal. I just like collecting them so yeah I have tons that I need to complete but I will will be playing NES and SNES 'till my hands get a severe case of gaming ending arthrits.

Interesting how you said “almost feel like my modern gaming days are mildy whaning.” I am feeling this way too. I have bought maybe three modern games this year and that includes Metroid Prime Trilogy which is not even an original title and not released this year. My PS3 sits more so for the purpose of a Blu-ray player than anything. Whereas, I couldn’t even tell you how many retro titles I have picked up this year. Modern games are like strippers; sure they look good and its fun for awhile and if you want to get more out of it you got to keep on paying money but in the end you are left feeling flat. Retro games are more like the girl next door; they may not be the hottest thing out there but they look good in their own way and you will always be looking forward to your next encounter. How about that analogy, yikes. :0 I haven’t sworn off modern titles though as I am like 90% sure I will get a a Wii U though and will probably get Skyward Sword. I don’t know if I will get the new Kirby, I have never really got into that series. Main reason I would get it is to play along with my wife. Super Mario 3D Land does look cool, be interested to know if it lives up to the expectations of the mighty Canadian 80’s wave child!

@oldgamesonly: When you get your collection complete, I want to see pictures man! :D Almost done collecting, how many games do you have?

@retro_on_theGo: Yeah, sounds like you have quite a line up to and probably not much Fred Flintsones clams left over for for a retro Thanksgiving.

I totaly laughed when i read the Back to the Future and Ice Cream man comments hahaha. :p I can relate to feeling too cool for gaming during the mid point of the gamecube era. All i cared about when i was 19-21 was having a blast and partying plus ze' french women. B-)
Videogames took a major back seat into nowhere land as i just didn't care at that point. It was basically just before i hit 22 when i got my DS Lite at launch, with the major hype build up months later when the Wii was announced that totaly kicked me back.

And those are some brilliant teeny weeny analogies regarding Modern and Retro gaming you got there, and i pretty much feel the same way, at least when it comes to the PS3 and XBOX, because I'm still all for new Wii experiences and that's mainly because i adore motion controls when done right like a Great white cartoon shark drugged out on cherry fruit roll ups. But on the PS3 and XBOX, i honestly could care less. I mean I might snag the new Mortal kombat if i ever see it going for cheap, or maybe the new Dead Space 2....Then again, I had a pretty boring time with the original based on my 1 or so hour play through.

Those Americanised 3rd person sloppy clunky controls while using dual analog for aiming felt flippin awful. I'd rather get polverised and dipped in Cartoon acid by Doctor Doom like that poor little shoe did in Who Framed Roger Rabit than put up with those archiac, dinosaur dated, unengaging snore enducing controls again. It felt like i was playing a PS2 game with prettier graphics and in HD....What can I say, I've seen the future of first person and 3rd person(and those are only 2 examples) and they are Wii pointer controls, at least for now until we're warped into virtual reality! B-) Going back to dual analog is worse than eating a plate of deep fried Mario mustaches. B-)

anyways, my PS3 controllers are in a box in storage along with my other games and gizmo gadgets that I've been forced to sell to King Kool-Aid. As for my PS3, i too just use it for DVD's and Blurays....hell, i should of just bought a Bluray player instead, i hate the fact that I'm using a video game console to play movies. :p

I guess what I'm saying is, my playstation days have officially ended...Then again they had pretty much 2 years ago after playing Resident Evil 5.:P) and I'm strictly old school retro with a massive splash of modern Nintendo. B-) I'll always stick with Nintendo and their new consoles, it's tradition bud! B-)

As for Kirby, i was never into the series either growing up. I played a bit of Dreamland 3 and Super Star at a friends house but that was it for the pink little fluffer. I ended up playing and beating Kirby's Adventure for the NES VC last year and i thought it ranged from to decent to pretty boring overall, but Super Star Ultra for the DS was quite the radskie omega to be honest, i was pretty impressed by that one. B-)

And then there's Kirby's Epic Yarn which was absolutely unique and gorgeous eye ball candy from a graphical/art direction stand point. But you won't get one ounce of challenge or satisfaction while playing it, after all you can't die.lol Just soak up the bright colorful sugary visuals, listen to the fluffy light hearted charming and whimsical tunes and you'll have a good time if you're in the mood for an unchallenging relaxing platformer. ;) Plus, those Motion Tilt Fire Truck controls were totaly awesome, it's innovation and ideas like 'that' that gets me excited and show me what next gen controls are all about. :)

Anyways, the Wave Child is hung over at the chocolate minty momento. :) time to hit the sack and dream about bodacious flourescent flying mullets and amazon babes with big hair. Maybe I'll luck out Y'noid-style and go on a wild adventure with Captain N and his little pal Mega and Icarus. lol B-)

@OldGamesOnly
Dude, it's perfecetly normal(then again, who's to say what's normal and what isn't, i say screw normal and do what makes you happy.lol) to not play another game until you've completed the one you're playing. that's exactly what I do. I mean i don't want to feel scatter brained like a bug eyed manic baxter stockman. B-) I want to stick to one game, beat it, then move onto the next.

I also have a new rule for Wii and 3DS games. I only buy 2 new games at the most at a time. And when i finish those 2, i'll buy 1 or 2 more. Any more and i feel to ooverwhelmed, but this doesn't apply to Retro purchases. :D At one point i had 8 or 9 unplayed wii games and it drove me insane off the captain hook plank.....I'm down to 4 unplayed Wii titles in my collection and that's it, and that still bugs me. lol

@Ryno
Oh and awesome buy regarding Contra III! B-) Once again, i've been even more inspired to get a CIB Nes game next pay check and a little something else. Contra III is definitly one of the best in the franchise, yet I've always been thrown off by it's more mechanical, darker and serious far less colorful & industrial envirtonments, tone and style. I mean bring back that lucious amazon, give me some bright blue killer water falls, not some construction site or some dungey streets and a warehouse. :p

Still it's an awesome game for sure. Yet the original will always be my favorite. Super C was a fun sequal and Contra 4 while good would of been better had it been one screen only. Those enemy bullets and projectiles zap through the screen like a rabit coming out of a mega magic hat. Still haven't played Hardcorps, I've got a copy of Contra: Operation C for the GB which i still need to play, and then there's the PS3 sequal 'Hardcore: Uprising". Yet Contra ReBirth was easily the worst of the bunchy bunch, half bunzed attempt with uncreative cookie cutter bosses(aside from the epic galactic space Catapilar in the first stage hehe) and it's so short, plus the wussy unlimited continues make the experience even MORE short and far less challenging. I want to have 'limited' continues, so I can go back to the start each time and master the freakaleakin' game and learn from my ninja turtle mistakes. :p

And it Contra 4 shouldn't of been callled Contra 4, as it was more like a remake/re-imagening of the original. :p
Anyways Retro Christmasy purchases coming my way less than 2 weeks! B-)

Not sure if you'd call Metal Gear Solid HD Collection retro or not. Peace Walker is relatively new, but not MGS 2 & 3. If that doesn't qualify it for retro status, you can also play the MSX version of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake! Which was one of my reasons for getting it. At last, I can play the TRUE versions of Metal Gear and Metal Gear 2! And maybe I'll face an actual, you know, METAL GEAR at the end of this MSX version, unlike NES "I feel asleep" Metal Gear, LOL.

Got Monster in My Pocket for the NES. Seems a bit generic, but being a Konami game, the game is probably comparatively still better known than the toy its based on (which is probably also the reason Nintendo had to rename a certain RPG). :)
(like Bucky O' Hare, another Konami licensed platformer. I even forget what the original property was, a cartoon or a toy. Got the Famicom version some time ago but haven't gotten around to playing it.)

Yup. I've been playing original Metal Gear today. I thought of playing the games chronologically, in terms of storyline, but I've waited too long to play this. That would've meant finishing Snake Eater and Peace Walker before getting to Metal Gear.

A lot of differences from NES Metal Gear so far. You arrive by water, like you do in Metal Gear Solid, instead of by air. And you start out at Outer Heaven's entrance, instead of in the jungle. And, comfortingly, if you're discovered, you aren't followed from screen to screen. Finally, couldn't help but go squee when I heard that the main theme is the same one you hear during missions in MGS: VR Missions (I think that may be my next retro purchase)! So far, it feels more like Metal Gear than the NES version (I guess primarily because of the entrance and music).

Oh, and the traditional NES era Konami pause jingle when you pause (squee again)! Not Outer Heaven. Retro Heaven! :)

Pffft I'm not gonna play the others till I'm done with 3. After that I'll probably play peace walker since it will be new to me. I'll probably play the MSX games in-between since it will take for ever to get to it! D:
