Images and Trailer of Bionic Commando Rearmed

Now this is a great surprise, Capcom announced the release sometimes in 2008 of the modern remake of Bionic Commando (NES version), named Bionic Commando Rearmed, on PSN and XBLA. No Hitler in that one, but instead we get coop (offline only though) so I don't think anyone will miss him!

Wow, the graphics are so good!

I can almost safely say I will definitely be getting this. I like it better than that other version they are making.

I like that by playing this game you can unlock a different character design replacement for the dreadlocked version in the next-gen remake.

I hope it's as hard as side scrollers were back then

Doubt it, you want to sell lot's of games, not scare not so hardcore gamers off with an insane difficulty level.

There's a good kind of hard and a bad kind of hard. The old school games were the bad kind. Nobody needs that!

I love it love it love it!

Incredibly awesome. The new abilities seem great too. Graphics seem really great. I love the music too.

I've never actually beaten the original NES one, but I've gotten to the last few levels.

Anyways, I just hope they don't mess up with some small thing that taints the experience.

Seriously?
Wow, I didn't know that.

Watching the video, for ANY Bionic Commando fan this is a MUST buy, and the next-gen version.

I for one can't wait to see much more polished of the newer BC. I am already attached to it, so more updated and polished and knowing GRIn and Capcom they will do a good job (personal opinion of the company "Capcom").

This one...I don't know, I might skip this one.
Although it looks very cool and all, I rather save up money (even if its not much) to add for next-gen titles or something else in general.

I wonder who you will play as in the new BC with online co-op?
Maybe that mysterious female *would be bad ass!*

The audio in the WMV didn't work on my PS3, just a heads up.

I can't get audio from neither mp4 nor avi nor WMV.

I can't get audio from videos anymore when I play them up from a USB drive or iPod for the videos.

I've played multiple wmv and mp4 files on my PS3 that all worked with audio, but I hear certain audio codecs or combinations don't work, this is the first that's ever failed for me.

I have tried different videos from Gamersyde, even the ones that worked before the update, and it doesn't work.
I haven't even touched the audio settings :S

:D Not terrible just a bit outdated graphics. Still I like Nes versions musics more. As you know I love C64 and 8-bit musics.

Yes I know, and I miss those for some very odd reason...Castlevania and Mega Man.

But they changed the tune in the BC Rearmed, but is close to the original.
While the netx gen version is the orchestral one (my personal favorite).

Wow this looks great! Capcom <3

Looks like great fun, havn't played too many side scrollers but this one looks great, would be a definite buy if my 360 hadn't been smashed by some a-hole =)

Hot.

Grin is doing a really good job with the capcom franchise.

Classic skin for the Next-Gen version, oh hell yes. I never liked the new guy anyway.

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I just read IGN's Sea of Thieves article and it's clear that Rare has a lot planned for this game. I just wonder if they can have all of that finished in time. (0 minute ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz This is their plan for most of their games, if not all of their 1st party IP going forward. (6 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz People say Gears & Halo aren't as big as they used to be, while that is true, they've traded unit sales for microtransactions which is proving very profitable for them. (7 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Cultivating new studios takes time. MS have only demonstrated interest in established brands. If they can drop 2.5billion on Mohjang, then it is a very deliberate decision to not open/buy new studios. (9 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I could be wrong on this but didn't Phil Spencer say he wanted SoT to be a long term thing? A returning franchise like Halo, Gears and Forza? (18 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Back in October the Rare team didn't even confirm it for this year but going by what MS said, it seems to be a 2017 title now, (20 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker People recommended me to read this Sea of Thieves article for a while now, apparently it explains what the game will be all about. [url] (22 minutes ago)
