Contra has been run through a Photoshop filter hasn't it?

Nooo not the papercut filter. I'm sure somebody just thought it would be a smart idea to filter the shots :(

Would have preferred Super Contra but you can't have it all.

Contra will be sweet!

That could be what the game actually looks like. I've seen emulators that do stuff sorta like that in realtime without needing a system anywhere near as powerful as the 360.

The live arcade short in the bringing it home section of marketplace, the guy said it was "super contra" .. I was like WTH, you're showing images of original contra

Yeah, I think it's called KAI or something, some weird emulation filter to get rid of pixels. I'm not a fan of how this one looks though...

What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Combined console sales of PS4/XO in 2016 were down 7% from 2015. (7 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane FF15 had the best launch month of any final fantasy game in the US!!! and this performance does not include digital sales!!! (46 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Tiz: Most big games were larger than what a standard CD-ROM disc could store, so it wasn't unusual that pirated games were lacking audio tracks or movies. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @Tiz: Sega used a proprietary GD-ROM format (about 1GB discs) for storage. It did not stop piracy though as you with a bootdisc could start cd-r copies without the need to hard mod the console. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX I think it was apparent to people.. even before the system launched.. that the early launch of the Dreamcast was risky. So I can see how EA might want to play hardball to sweeten the deal on said risk (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They also sold 2K and exited the console business... so maybe it wasn't all the best course of action after all :D (4 Hours ago)
