Which was the better Contra?
>>
contra 1 for the nes
>>
>>4312714
>>
Contra > Super C > Hard Corps > Contra 3
>>
>>4312712
Never been a fan of Contra. But if I had to buy one, it's the Sega Genesis because unlike the SNES, it comes with a plastic case.
>>

>it's the Sega Genesis because unlike the SNES, it comes with a plastic case.

uhh, no sweetie, the genesis version was a weak ass cardboard box
>>
>>4312712
Genesis because you can be a fuckin werewolf
>>
>>4312730
Cyborg Werewolf
Floating MINI- Robot
Arnold Swartznigger
Sharon Stone

Line up was GOAT
>>
>>4312729
Crap. I guess it must have been a later release, just like the Power Rangers The Movie game.
>>
>>4312741
Hmm, nevermind maybe I'm the one thats wrong.
I think the cardboard box one was a later release because I found a hard box on google, then again, everyone just prints their own labels and shit now for everything so it could be a fake
>>
>>4312729
Actually Hard Corps originally released with a hard case. A re-release later included a cardboard box.
>>
>>4312752
Yeah, I GOOFED.
>>
>>4312712
Contra III has better level design, but the graphics are candy colored and 2 of the 6 levels are overhead levels, and those kinda sucked. So it only has 4 normal levels.

Hard Corps has better graphics and 4 characters with unique weapons, and there is more depth to the play mechanics, such as having the ability to slide and shoot in all directions while standing still. However, the level design (what little there is) kinda sucks, and there is quite a few gameplay interruptions (dialogue sequences and cut scenes). Not a good thing to have in an arcade action game. Sadly, Hard Corps is really just a boss rush mode and not a full Contra game. If it had at least 8 full length levels, it could've been the greatest Contra ever.

Conclusion: I want to like Hard Corps more, but it's constant gameplay interruptions and lack of full length levels make it impossible to like more than Contra III.
>>
>>4312747
Yeah. Just like the custom SNES/N64 cases I bought on ebay.
>>
>>4312769
I feel similar to you, I don't think the overhead levels are that bad, but 1 more side-scroller one would have been great
>>

>Better music
>Multiple paths

-Contra III

Can we all agree for Contra 3:

Stage 3>Stage 1>Stage 4>Stage 6>HIV>Stage 2>Stage 5?
>>
>>4312712
Japanese version of hard corps.
>>
>>4312920
Genuinely interested anon, what differences are there between jap and usa versions?
>>
>>4312712
Contra 3 is the best Contra.

Contra Hard Corps is one of the weakest treasure games, and I don't like it.
>>
>>4312936
>treasure games

Hard Corps was made by treasure?
No wonder its so good.

It was not, look up the credits on mobygames
>>
>>4312931

Jap version gives you HP instead of it being a 1 hit death.
>>
>>4313148
So its Contra : EASY CORPS

Japs are wimps
>>

Get you gone, filthy /pol/ack.

Snes desu
>>
>>4312712
They're both good, but 3 is better, OP. Hard Corps is almost entirely a memorizer and once you learn a level it's not challenging anymore. 3's hard mode is consistently challenging.
>>

>le_pol_boogeyman
>>
>>4313205
Shouldnt you be in a casino somewhere shooting country music fans?
>>
>>4313193
3 is too all about memorization, and both have good parts and stages but personally Hard Corps feels more satisfying to beat.

3 Has some ugly shit stages which once you get accustomed to the movement become easy because they are very short, Hard Corps has not only more stages but several mid-bosses in each one, is much more fun to fool around with different characters and so.
>>
>>4313218
Shouldn't everyone?
>>
>>4313268
Seriously, go shit up somewhere else and don't be so rough on your blood pressure.
>>
>>4313271
>dude Im going to talk about pol and politics because someone posted a gif, but YOU'RE the one shitting up the thread!

Kill yourself, really.
Retards dont belong on this earth
>>
>>4313159
>>4313205
>derailing a thread and shouting "pol" just because someone posted a reaction picture that happened to have Trump in it.

Kill yourself.

At least the other guy had the good grace to troll you for replies. Your replies aren't even funny. You should be embarassed.
>>
>>4313276
>>4313281
Two different people being inordinately hostile and saying "kill yourself" in a row. Seems legit.

Why don't you just quit trying to migrate other boards here?
>>
>>4313281
Also, calm the fuck down. They were just telling you to keep the political memes out of here. No need to start "trolling" in the first place.
>>
>>4313285

Two people saying it just means you should really do it, tbqhfam

Also mods can see if its a samefag or not, so Im not worried, although Im sure they're be purging this thread soon
>>
>>4313291
They'll see I'm not the person you originally started raging at, and that I'm just telling you to chill out and keep political BS somewhere else.
>>
>>4312769
That train level was more fun than anythng in Cucktra 3. Hell all of the riding levels are, meanwhile shit like the tank in 3 is sluggish and just not fun.

The "gameplay interruptions" are there because it has a story mode with alternate routes and 5 different endings, giving it a huge amount of replay value and several levels. Did you only play through it once? And it's not an arcade action game, it's a run-n-gun for the Genesis.
>>
>>4313292
Nobody here is raging, well besides you and your friend telling people to leave /vr/

If you dont like confrontation, dont start shit.
simple. conversation over.

There's nothing on record that shows Treasure or anyone associated with Treasure had anything to do with Contra Hard Corps.
>>
>>4312712
Shattered Soldier
>>
>>4312730
It was broken for the US release though. The removed the 3 hits per life in the Japanese and Euro release without making it easier.
>>
>>4312712
IT'S PAYBACK TIME!
>>
>>4313632
3 hit points with invincibility times between each hit was way overkill. The US version is the best.
>>
>>4313632
Contra 3 is an unplayably broken piece of shit all around though and isn't even fun with a Game Genie due to how bad things like vehicles are, and 1/3 of the game being shitty overhead levels. Hard Corps is at least fun in the Japanese version or with a Game Genie.
>>
>>4313637
The 1 hit kill is Hard Corps would be fine if the weapons spawned more often but you get like maybe one or two weapons in a level sometimes
>>
>>4313672
Just git gut toddler
