WRUP: Grab some baby oil edition

Why would you need the baby oil? To grease up that buff chest of yours, of course! As you navigate many a hostile environment, keep your hands clenched tight around your trusty gun. Oh, gun ... how you never let us down, keep us safe at night. This is our gun, there are many like it, but this one is ours.

There were some other interesting releases this week, but for us, none ranks higher than Contra 4. But, maybe you're of the mind that you'd rather play something else? We can't possibly understand why, but we'll promise to try, if you let us. So, what are you playing?

ive had contra 4 since the day it came out and have loved every second of it.......its incredibly challenging.......i just today am able to complete easy mode without continuing.....and it was close/VERY HARD!!!!!! was just 40 percent luck and 60 percent memorizing not really a huge fan of sidescrollers and i know this game is aimed more towards the hardcore nintendo roots people (yes ive had a nes since i was 3 but i dont consider myself hardcore roots in nintendo.....i was more of a sega kid (back then)) so i thought this game wouldnt do much for me but i was dead wrong this game is AMAZING.....and very beautiful...alot more then i could have expected....

I will be getting my DS today (it's my birthday), so I will be starting with Mario Kart and Zelda..

I don't like hard games anyway, so I'm guessing I will pass on this game..

This week I'm playing Contra 4 and Super Mario Galaxy. A rare occasion that I play not one, but two new games the week they come out (thank you TRU gift card). I'm also still playing FFIII. Somewhat.

As for Contra 4, the few levels I've played have been fun and my first run on Level 1 in Easy resulted in the need to continue. However, my next run through I didn't die at all (it was Level 1 Easy after all).

I eventually beat NES Contra without the need for 30 lives, so I'm sure I'll have Contra 4 down in no time (a couple years or so).
