    Then just use the spreader.

    kinda hard to if your used to picking up items from boxes.
    maybe there should be a feature like megaman to switch between weapons?

    Kinda goes against the whole "accuracy" thing we got going.

    Laser is good you just need pro-l33t skill. Now as for the Rs ... Doesn't Bill have a rocket launcher or something?

    Seriously? It's too hard to not pick up items? Sorry, but you're just being lazy.

    I think he was driving more at the random nature (you cannot control WHEN the desired weapon would come out), but I broadly agree with your stance.

    ehh... hes taken a few liberties with this game.
    and besides he doesnt HAVE to follow it all 100%(wheres the fun in that? lol)
    what id like to see with bill is every item he picks up is added to a selection like megaman/bass.
    and so select/special could be his weapon select.
    dont hate, but i dont like how lazar cant be rapid-fired. >_< doubt anyone does.
    EDIT:
    wow... nobody replies here? guess im the only one complainin.
    i just wish the lazar and flame thrower played more like their super c counterparts.
    but eh, its a minor gripe.
    BILL FUCKING RULES ANYWAY!
    now if youll excuse me:
    *puts on blue camo, rips off shirt*
    LETS ATTACK AGGRESSIVELY!!
    *guns down goombas in 1-2*

    At the very beginning of Super C, the Contra guys came down a rope. I wonder why that sprite wasn't used for grabbing the flag.

    That sprite is actually just part of the running cycle. But it still might work.

    In my opinion, every character should be as different from the others as possible. Then you have more reason to play as the different characters, because you might like different things about them.

    Now that we have skins that actually modify character behaviour to the point it is almost like having different characters, I would love to see Bill/Lance get their SNES Contra 3 machine gun. Yeah it is strong and powerful and fast, but it would be fun. :p

    unfortunately it seems like the extent of skins are things like inputs, speed, jump height, etc. Actual different content doesn't seem likely

    How is the SNES machine gun different from the NES one?

    You've never actually played the game, I see. You should, it's one of the best Contra games out there.

    What are the new Bill and Lance skins from? They're clearly 16-bit, but they are neither from nor based on the SNES game.

    World 1-1 Level 6: Lakitu

    The machine gun in the SNES game, which is the default, is fully automatic, there's tons of bullets per second and as many bullets as you could shot in one screen.

    I take it they're BASED on the Contra 3. Like, resized versions that look good.

    That may be too much, then. The skins are supposed to be close if not similar to the NES version.

    To elaborate, the new 16-bit Bill can clearly be seen with some yellow on his shirt, whereas Contra 3 Bill is wearing all blue.

    The stance is the same I guess, but it's a different costume and it's not like the Contra 3 sprites even need to be resized.

    As you can see, the SNES sprites are a LITTLE bit taller, but it's no more than the GB/SNES Samus skins.

    I mean even if we had Bill's semi-auto Contra 3 machine gun but it took like, 10 bullets to kill a Goomba, it would just still be so awesome. :D

    Also, I still insist you play Contra 3, Rey. Absolutely terrific game that really highlighted what the SNES was capable of.

    That's Jimbo. Then again is it Bill in the Japanese version?
