Nitro Game Injection #140: Unleashed

Play

This week, NGI takes a look at Cliff Colon’s ContraBand (not to be confused with Bit Brigade ), an amazingly fresh and creative jazz album arranging Konami’s classic Contra soundtrack. They also play a few highlights from the recent OCR/Bad Dudes collaboration Heroes vs. Villains, check out some great doujin works that they don’t know anything about, and celebrate Zelda’s 25th with a huge 20-minute medley from Link to the Past by the one and only CarboHydroM. Check it out!

ContraBand album review:
Kyle’s rating: 5 out of 5
Larry’s rating: 4.5 out of 5
