    Yeah whatever I’ll come back for seconds too, get it out of the way before the Troll of the Week shows up.

    Contrary to what many of the blog posts here would tell you, some games are actually worth 1200 parts. I know that’s hard to believe, but it’s true. This might have been one of them, were in not for that day 1 PDLC crap.
    I think it should have at least been free if you bought the game within a few weeks, like what DeathSpank ToV did. That way, buy it now or wait for it to be 800 on DotW and the “full” game is still 1200.
    Still, thanks Konami. Thanks to your bullshit nickel and diming you’ve saved me some money!

    One thing I’ve noticed, what is it with Japanese devs constantly trying to rip people off with PDLC and PULC? They’re not the only ones, heavens no, but they sure are repeat offenders. Squeenix, Hudson, Konami…

    1200 parts? Whoops. I wouldn’t like to download a game in 1200 parts.

    Day one pay DLC for a 1200 point game means this will get no consideration from me. Shame on Konami.

    Yeah I love Contra, no doubt about it.
    But this Paid DLC on Day 1 business needs to F off big time.
    Especially when it’s only playable characters, Konami can suck it.
    Paid DLC should only be in the form of sizeable expansion packs, not this, this should be free.
    Microsoft needs to put an end to these practices as well as the pre-order DLC BS.
    It’s just another excuse to rip customers off by giving them an incomplete game.

    Greed, thats all it is. There must be some way of not letting these companies charge for content that is already on the disc or is below a certain file size.

    I would’ve gotten this at 800 moon points and considered wanking away 400 more for new characters if it was that good. At 1200 moon points for what’s going to be a short game with half the cast missing they can fuck off

    Some people aparently have no idea of how game production works.
    This DLC probably wans’t even made by the time the final version of the game was shipped to MS.
    But since this game is part of a seasonal push, its release date has been set long ago when the game was finished.
    So until release date, devs had time to work on DLC.
    Get a clue people…

    Not me. should have been 800 points and the Day one DLC makes this even more ridiculous.

    @m la taupe- so you think it’s OK for them to charge 400 bucks for 2 extra characters on release day?! Don’t talk shit, we play games and have enough of an idea when somebody’s trying to fuck us over.

    the game may well be worth 1200 points but as for the dlc if like me it annoyed you then just don’t buy it …. don’t moan about it don’t shout about how much its a rip off just don’t buy it sooner than later developers will see a trend and stop

    It’s stupid that you girls are crying over paid DLC, especially since it’s OPTIONAL. It’s like you’d find the car of your dreams then have a hissy fit because you can have a cup holder, but it’ll cost you and extra $0.60. All the DLC does is add another character and that shouldn’t be the most of your worries if you say the game isn’t worth the 1200 price tag. I swear if I could slap the whole load of you I would. You kids need to READ the descriptions of DLC before you begin crying over spilt milk.

    People are insane, if you want the game get the game, if you dont want the PDLC then ignore it. Its like saying I don’t want an Xbox 360 because Monster cables are so expensive. The dlc isn’t necessary, so why short yourself on a game you want to play because an optional cost isn’t to your liking. If everyone ignores the game because of the DLC Konami won’t release another contra game, they will continue to release DLC anyway though. If people buy the game and everyone ignores the DLC then maybe they’d get your message.

    Make sure Konami gets your message, if your message is I don’t like day one PDLC then dont get the content, if your message is I don’t think its a good game then ignore the game.

    Im the first person to express my opinion on this game? Wow…

    This game is actually quite awesome. I hadn’t heard of it before, so I had to look it up on youtube. Soft of the same genre as Metal Slug and Contra, with absolutely gorgeous graphics without losing that typical ‘arcade’ feel.

    Good job on this one I’d say, purchasing it. Radiant Silvergun will probably be next, whenever it finally gets released🙂

    Well that’s a bit harsh.^
    Anyway yeah the game plays like a Contra game, because it is a Contra game. You’d think they’d have left the Contra name in, strength of the brand name and all…
    Also, BlazBlue-esque animooting. Always a plus.

    I can’t believe anough people allow themselves to be shafted that that this utter BS tactic is still profitable for publishers. Never buy for me and I won’t even queue up the demo.

    I was ready to buy even before trying the demo, I didn’t even mind the 1200 tag.

    After this DLC fiasco, I’m waiting for the Deal of the Week on it, not paying more than 600. And I’m not boycotting it entirely only because I love Contra.

    The game looks great from the demo, which is a shame. But I rather not support developers following the way of EA, stripping games and giving/selling the parts as DLC.

    Not tried it yet, but don’t like the look of the screenshots… seems to be in that crappy 2.5d style. Why not just leave it as proper 2d – and concentrate on the pixel art.
