If ever you played Contra and enjoyed yourself, then you need to play this game.
Long-time gamer. Racing game junkie, Destiny Guardian, and Titan Pilot.
Mains Xbox, but also dabbles in PS4 exclusives. Recovering game collector - but willing to go back and play retro. Double Major in Racing and 1st Person Shooters with a Minor in 2-D shmups.
