Gotta love how they manage to have forward progress each episode just like with the first contra.

Edit: it would be nice if we could actually watch that progress instead of only the first 12 minutes though! ;)

I've got so pumped but the video kind of ends without closure.

It can only mean that this will be The Run.

New video series where the full length video gets posted.

This Is The One.

Just kidding... I think this might be the run, though.

This is Dusty finish. Now they can claim "Oh we beat the game in Part 8 but the video feed cut out, take our word for it though." Dan is such a heel.

The first instance of a devil goat was Black Phillip from a film made in 2015. Right.

As a kid I always thought Noiman's character design was based on a cyberpunk Wayne Knight, since he was the hacker in Jurassic Park and Noiman=Newman from Seinfeld.

They're never going to internalize that "slide, don't jump" rule they keep reciting, are they?

'Baphomet' is the devil goat thing, Bahamut is a different mythological creature.

Love this feature so much. But if I could make one suggestion: as dumb as it sounds could you guys not spoil your progress in the thumbnails? It's hard to get excited when I already know you've beaten Noiman.

Question: If they go after Dead Eye Joe instead of rescuing the scientists, can they bypass that last thing altogether, cause after the mech the guy gets arrested

This game is flashy and fun to watch, but I feel like the encounter designs are not as good as other Contra games.

Bahamūt is a giant fish who helps hold up the world in medieval Arabic cosmology. Baphomet is a sick looking satanic goat that a guy in the 1800's came up with to slander the knights templar as devil worshippers.

Baphomet got added to D&D's first edition monster manual II as a demon lord. I presume final fantasy stole it from that and changed the spelling back to Bahamut.
