Now Playing: Hard Corps: Uprising - Evil Incarnate
Games these days aren't exactly the most challenging. I hear newer gamers speaking in game lobbies bragging about how they beat Black Ops on Veteren, and all I can think is "but it's not a hard game to beat".

The Insane mode on Gears was pretty damn tough, but they dumbed that down in Gears 2 and it's a trend I see quite a bit now with games getting easier to beat, and some even seem to play themselves!

So it was a great change of pace to get play Hard Corps: Uprising, the sequel to Contra: Hard Corps. It's a retro styled side-scrolling shooter done by Arc System Work - the guys behind Blazblue - and for their first venture into the genre it's a damn impressive game. It looks pretty, sounds good and plays great.
However don't expect the game to go easy on you, it'll kick you around, blow you up and shoot you in the face so many times you'll want to punch a rhino. Um, actually don't punch an elephant, it's not going to go well for you.

So maybe games are getting easier, but if you want a challenge then get Hard Corps: Uprising when it comes out on the 16th of this month.
