This Is Contra!

Listen to this post:

Like listening to the audio? You can now get The Book of Pook as an Audiobook! (Over 13 hours of human narration - FAR superior to the machine generated TTS on this site!)

We also recommend checking out Pook's other book, "The Pook Manifesto" Audiobook (Over 15 hours of human narration). It is longer, contains more ideas, and is a lot of fun to listen to. If you like the Book of Pook, you will love this one.


One must give due when a manly entertainment form comes out. It could be a movie (Gladiator, 300, etc.) or music. But there haven’t been too many manly games anymore filled with feminized heroes and heroines who dress in a bikini but carry giant guns/swords.

If you don’t know about Contra, give it a read here.

One must give a nod to Contra 4 coming out. Just look at the website, and you will find digitized testosterone. Everywhere you click, you get an explosion with chip metal going on in the background. No soap operas. No ‘love stories’ in the game.

THIS. IS. CONTRA!!!
