2 games down already! This time it's Sonic and Knuckles for genesis (which for those of you keeping track means i can put the Sega away for the rest of the summer xD)

Sonic and knuckles felt odd, and i couldn't put my finger on it until about half way through the game....when i saw a scene that looked sorta like this:



look familiar? ...how about when put near this:


it was at this point that i realized i was no longer playing a sonic game....just a cheap mario ripoff. The speed that defined the games was minimal, and twitchy platforming sections dominated the game. I was really hoping that after my disappointing experience with sonic 3 (read it here:http://www.rfgeneration.c...-NeoMagicwarrior-1798.php) that the game would return to its roots....*sigh*

That isn't to say the game was all bad. The controls were tighter than they had ever been, and some of the music was great (even though some of it was horrible).

Eventually, i'll have to go back through with knuckles and see if it is any more enjoyable that way, but for now i'll call it done!

so where am I at?

Well, the first of the pile has fallen! Contra Hard Corps is finally beaten.



CHC requires a bit of an explanation as to why it is so important. I've had this game as long as I've had my genesis (94-95ish). And as a five year old, it is tough to decide which game is harder: the lion king or Contra Hard Corps. Now that I'm much older, I have come to see the answer: lion king.

Contra Hard Corps was more of a memory game than i had thought. After not playing this gem for years,  it all just fell into place...each bullet expertly dodged with precision and grace and extra lives....so many extra lives and continues.

i really wish i could find some sort of story on it though....not sure how a wolf with a robotic arm and a robot fit into contra storywise....then again, why am i asking about a story in contra???

I really enjoyed playing through it....and cant wait till i get the time to play through again to get a different ending..

so where does that leave me? oh wait 29 more >.>
