My PAX expo hall map showed a small Konami
booth toward the back of the hall. Just small enough, I thought, for a couple of DS demo stations showing off a certain side-scrolling sequel. I was sure I'd come back a hero, having gotten my hands on Contra 4
for real, and bringing back hyperbolic froth based on real playtime
rather than screenshots
You can imagine our disappointment when we saw the actual Konami booth, then. That's it above, occupied by Derrick and Garrett from Mega64. ProTip: it's not Contra 4.
Okay, I'm exaggerating. That's not the whole
Konami booth. There was another DDR machine behind it.
