Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start Online EP

Post by gradwellhouse » Mon Mar 12, 2007 11:54 am

Hey everyone....
Just thought i would post a link to my bands online only EPs http://upupdowndownloads.com. We are playing our annual Philadelphia/NJ show next week and i thought that some people here in our region might like the stuff and come out if they are bored next monday.
The stuff was recorded at my studio The Gradwell House http://gradwellhouse.com which also has a ton of cool mp3 samples of other bands there.

Enjoy, and as always i love the feedback good and bad.
Steve

p.s. the show is on Monday the 19th at The First Unitarian Church in Philly with Appleseed Cast and Live and Times.[/url]

we actually picked it based on the 1 player code from contra for 30 free lives.

Hmmm. I'm gonna have to get Ikkari Warriors out again. Because it's something VERY similar, if that's not it. I didn't ever play Contra except on gameboy.

Anyway, maybe up up down down left right left right ABBA start.

I always thought that that game was impossible to beat without the code.

Man, that guy is good. i watched the whole thing. i think he died once, unless i missed one. He's really controlled. I'm especially impressed by the out of tank combat.

A ton of those old Konami (and other) games used this cheat code, it was pretty much a standard on the NES. Some slight variations, some ended with "B-A-SELECT-START", others used "A-B-SELECT-START", stuff like that.

The Deftones named an instrumental on their new album with the Konami code.

Yeah, anyway, ol' school video game geekiness prevails!
