    Played through the whole game on FCEUX with Erik (using the Konami Code), but I died on the last level... DAMMIT.

    Completed the game (Mednafen - 30 Lives Cheat). Completed the game using 30 lives code, just warming up for YouTube stream...

    Completed the game (Mednafen - 30 Lives Cheat). Completed it again using 30 lives code, streaming to YouTube. I switched to using a 360 controller, which I regretted. The controller has a problem where pressing down on the D-pad often results in a diagonal, which in Contra results in your character not ducking. Many pointless deaths because of this.

    Completed the game (Mednafen - 30 Lives Cheat). My second Cotnra YouTube stream went better. I was using the keyboard instead of the Xbox 360 controller. I'm still far from being able to beat it without cheating...

    Playing on my real NES and using no cheat codes for once, I reached stage 6/8.

    I got 4 RetroAchievements in Contra. It's fun that you have new reasons to go back to these old games.
