Let me warn you right now – we don’t spend a lot of time talking about Contra: Shattered Soldier in this episode. It’s a great game and one that I have fond memories of playing when it released in 2002, but there were just too many distractions too ignore. We knew things were going to be different when the Replay machine started “calibrating” in the opening moments.
To cover some of the ground we simply never got around to in the episode, Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves, the voice of Leo Vader, and I take a look at a great Contra reboot for the PlayStation 2. It’s a legitimate sequel to the previous games with lots of specific callouts to the Contras that came before it. We also, finally, check in with a missing staff member to find out what happened to them?
