Man, I love Your Doing It Wrong. I also loved Stress Test. Maybe we should combine the two? See how that works out?
Interesting accidental Super Replay...
i remember playing this on gameboy. if you played through two or three levels you could eventually figure out from the passwords what the values were from each letter/number and start with whatever weapon you want.
Just so you know:
The characters are named after cast members in the movie "Aliens" from 1985.
Lance Henriksen, Michael Biehn, Bill Paxton, and Paul Reiser each have a major role in the film.
And of course you caught the clear "Aliens" references in the last level.
In Germany Contra was "Probotector"
Man, Contra games are hard!
This is the second surprise super replay I've seen. I've seen this one and Crystal's Poney Tail. I really enjoyed watching Tim and Bryan play Contra. The end segment of "You're playing it wrong" was great!! Reiner won!!!:D hahah!
This was a great game to go back to and bring to Replay. What a classic, and seeing you guys beat it was great! The Your Doing It Wrong segment this time was also awesome. I'm glad that Reiner won! Great Replay.
Best co-op game. ever
I'm giving up on your video player. It is the worst. :( I'm off to your unsorted Youtube account to watch this.
