    The Contra/Konami code. Also worked for Castlevania.

    A genuine marker of my generation. A random, arbitrary, banal, mundane reference to the culture that produced me.

    Others include: Pogs and Tamagotchi.

    What a wonderful world I've lived in.

    Anyone else got any?

    I'm pretty confident you got the code right except the select..

    No Select..

    Everything else is correct..

    You hit select, start if its a 2 player game.

    Just start if its a one player.

    That was the second nintendo game I ever owned.

    It was the best thing ever.

    I was talking about this the other day. Out of the blue, a friend of mine just goes into the code for Contra.

    vench <----can't remember if it was 35 or unlimited men....

    Thirty men to start off, and a cool weapon. The gun with the bubble-ball things flinging around it.

    I think, anyway.

    No bubble weapon......

    The code was just for 30 men.

    If we're talking about Contra.

    Contra II had the code for 10 men.....

    Cheap ass Konami

    Anyone remember the TV show Judge Dread? You could get a gun and play along by shooting bad guys on the TV and if you get shot your gun would explode. Am I dreaming? Did anyone own this?

    Another one that just popped into my head is Crystar. I was probably the only kid in the world to have these action figures. I especially liked the neat prism crystals that came with them. I think they were good for magnifying ants in the hot sun. Kids can be cruel.

    My Dear Ol'Corey,

    I'm not odd -- I'm just eclectic in taste. [​IMG]

    Also, I don't even remember posting this last night, that's the kicker!
