Another massive multi-game collection without a platinum? Konami must have caught whatever ailment Capcom has been suffering from for the past five or so years... at least you can get the same amount of points as a platinum if you do all the stacks, I... guess?

 

10 minute all gold trash games get a platinum while something like this doesn't. What even is life.

They realize now that the platinum is worthless

It would have been cool if this had a plat but I'm going to play this regardless growing up this was my second favorite series, aside from the TMNT games. Loved those old school hack and slash or shooter games.

Definitely going to grab this. I used to play Contra all the time when I was younger. Really don't care about the platinum (or lack there of) as it'll be fun just playing it again.

Looking forward to playing it . I don't care if it doesn't have a platinum . But the fact that most of the trophies are Bronze and there's no silver irritates me . But that's not going to judge if I'm playing it or not , also I hope it will be a hard 100%

Think I only really played the original on the NES which was so much fun.  Maybe a few minutes of Super Contra.

 

The waterfall level was perfect for couch co-op, a race to the top and to automatically kill your friend who could not keep up. :)

Hyped for some Contra but that sure is an uninspired trophy set.

I love that is it coming but wish I knew the price as I won't pay £20 for it. maybe bad but yeah sounds abit way off for old classics like them as metal slug was only £15 and if you ask me for all the old ones is worth that much.

 

Only say the price range as the castlevaina one that has SotN and the other one can't name off the top of my head was 25 for only 2 of them, one being a timeless classic and the other not sure but yeah. Trophy wise it is good as I won't do some crazy run of it where you must beat the game without dying as yeah that is too much for me now adays to do as am not as fast as I used to be.

 

But game wise I love it as I never played most of the contra games only 3 and the first one I played.

Literally never heard of this game, and I was born in the 90s. Not sure if that makes a difference or not lol.

 

 

EDIT: Nevermind, it doesn't have a platinum. 

How could you not have heard of this game???

Unlimited continues?

Completely forgot about the Waterfall comrade killings!

  I brought my NES to college and we would play Contra after hitting the bars.  We were pretty groggy in gameplay, but the Waterfall section always caused a Wrestlefest to break out bc the drunker player couldn't keep up. 

Thanks for jogging some funny memories from a few years ago...well, a few decades ago.   ;)

A lot of guys in their late 30s and 40s reminiscing about these games. 

 

If this is like all the other old classic game collections then there will be some sort of save system. 

 

Contra 3: Alien Wars is a very difficult game to beat.

Beat the collection super fast on Xbone, probably the first person to do it as well, within a 4 or 5 hours time frame, I attack'd aggressively and I was locked and loaded! :D

For those of you wanting to wait for the patch that give you the Japanese versions may have a huge advantage since those will be much easier for you, since you'll gain access to stage select codes, not to mention almost all the games have limited continues, but like Castlevania there's the save state feature. You can do just fine without those benefits too, especially if you use speed run techniques like I do.

 

The games that require you to play from start to finish all the way through are:

- Contra (NES USA)

- Contra (Arcade)

- Super Contra (Arcade)

- Contra 3: The Alien Wars (SNES USA)

- Contra: Hard Corps (Genesis USA)

- Super Probotector: Alien Rebels (SNES PAL)

- Probotector (Hard Corps, Mega Drive PAL)

 

For the Mega Drive PAL version, all you need to do is choose Route E (Secret Boss Arena) to get that one quickly. And the SNES one, Normal or Easy setting counts for the trophy but I recommend you play that one on Hard for the true ending! I still don't have a PS4 yet but I would probably stack all the retro arcade games and collections once i get one. :3

Contra 3's top down levels could be a pain but I didn't find the side scrolling levels to be too bad. Hard Corps was the hard one for me, even to this day I haven't been able to finish it without save states

Almost all of these games have limited continues and once those are used, you have to start over.

I don't remember exactly which ones, but Contra 3: The Alien Wars and Contra: Hard Corps gives you only few credits.

I'd use the code and still lose all my lives by the fourth level as a kid. Contra was something else back in the day. 

me and my friends played the game so much we ended up being able to beat it without the code.  Before we found the code couldn't get past the 2nd level.  having to replay level one over and over only to fail on two made you not want to go on.  once we were able to play the entire thing we slowly got better at each level individually all at once.  Bet today I couldn't get past the 1st level  without the code.

Always fun to see how many people skip a great game or games when it doesn't have a platinum. Smh
