Strap on your ammo belt, grab your unlimited clips, clean your bazooka, and get ready for some sweet Run n' Gun action with the boys from the RFGen Playcast!  As you know, each December we typically pick a few games to play with members of the community for a high score challenge.  Two years ago, we played through the Streets of Rage series, which our own Disposed Hero came out on top of, and last year, MetalFRO was our Top Shmuper as he dominated many of the shooters we choose.  This December, we have chosen the Run n' Gun genre for our playthrough and will be holding weekly high score competitions for the following games: Contra (NES), Rolling Thunder 2 (Genesis), and Metal Slug 3 (XBox and various compilations).  Official rules and sign-ups here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?topic=16039.0

Posted under Modern Gaming, Remakes, PS3, LittleBigPlanet, Konami, Contra, Sackboy is still the cutest game character ever

I'm pretty sure most of us here have played that NES classic, Contra. What better way to celebrate its legacy than to turn it into a series of LittleBigPlanet levels? Well, that's what a bunch of people from the NeoGAF forums thought of, and they decided to make it a reality in a collaborative effort called LittleBig Contra. Using a lot of assets (including the paint gun) from the Metal Gear Solid DLC, they've managed to make a near perfect conversion of the original game.

Here's a look at what you can expect:



To locate the levels in LittleBigPlanet, search for the creator's PSN names. I've listed all 8 levels below in this order, "Level Name: PSN Name"

  1. Jungle: Leonidas2123
  2. Base 1: SaitoHalifax
  3. Waterfall: RyanardoDavinci
  4. Base 2: SaitoHalifax
  5. Snowfield: NinjaMicWZ
  6. Energy Zone: El_Beefo
  7. Hangar: Jaeyden
  8. Alien's Lair: gevurah22


I've played through first two levels so far, and I must say that I am very impressed with their creative skills. I glanced at the others briefly, and they seem just as brilliant as the two I've already played. The only weak spot are the base levels. Remember how those were a 3D perspective in the original? Well, they tried to replicate it, and the results are decent at best. However, considering the circumstances and the limitations LittleBigPlanet placed on the level creators, I'm rather impressed. If you have a PS3 and LBP, you must seek out these levels as they are some of the best examples of what can be done with LittleBigPlanet's creation tools

Oh yeah, the Konami Code is most definitely in these levels. Cheesy
