Check out this sick 11-minute NES chiptune rock medley

Guitarist Psycho Crusher, whose amazing rock arrangements I've shared numerous times in the past, originally composed this latest jam with the intent to play it live as a full band. Instead, he decided to turn it into a chip...

Win Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 + Astro gaming headset!
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

[Update] Contest closed! Winner is Genki-JAM for his awesome entry. Hotdog arms!

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 was released last month for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network and we thought the game was pretty good. Developer Fat Shark's game deserves a little more attention so we're giving away the game for either the PlayStation Network OR Xbox Live Arcade (your choice!) That's not all! We're also going to be giving away a Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 shirt and Astro A30 black headset with custom Rearmed 2 speaker tags!

To enter, you're going to need to create Nathan "Rad" Spencer moustache (print it out, draw it, etc), put it on something and take a picture or video of it. Yourself, your pet cat, your mom who's passed out because she's been hitting the bottle too hard again -- doesn't matter what, it just has to be funny, a real picture (NO PHOTOSHOPPING) and safe for work.

You have until March 29 at 11:59PM CST to leave your entry in the comments below. One entry per person and contest is open to US residents only. Good luck!

Fatshark briefly talks jumping in Bionic Commando Rearmed

When it was unveiled that the ability to jump would be in Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, some of you freaked out. Just a tad. Well, maybe considerably more than that. But now many of us have tried jumping, and there's been a mor...

Review: Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 photo
Review: Bionic Commando Rearmed 2
by Nick Chester

In 2008, Capcom rebooted the Bionic Commando franchise with two remarkably disparate approaches.

On one end of the spectrum was the third-person action retail title, Bionic Commando, which found ex-Faith No More singer Mike Patton growling profanities and tossing cars at enemy soldiers. On the other was Bionic Commando Rearmed, a digital download title that title that adhered closer to the original game’s formula. The former was met with mediocre reviews and poor sales, and the latter praised for its old-school sensibilities and slick nods to its source material.

Rearmed proved to be successful enough to warrant a sequel, one that relies less on clinging to the past, and more on opening up Bionic Commando’s basic gameplay mechanics with more “new school” gameplay design choices. Rearmed 2 also features a slew of other additions that on paper, make it sound like a superior game to the original. As it turns out, it’s a solid game, but one that’s slightly outclassed by its predecessor.

Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 features PSN DRM again

Similar to the PlayStation Network release of Final Fight: Double Impact, so too does Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 on PSN have DRM which requires an Internet connection upon booting up the game. The difference is that this time,...

Bionic Command Rearmed 2 drops in first week of February

Capcom has announced that Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 will be jumping to PlayStation Network on February 1, and Xbox Live Arcade on February 2. Why "jumping" and not "swinging"? Because swinging is old hat for Nathan Spencer, w...

Hey look, it's a Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 boss fight

Perhaps more than any other tradition in gaming, I would be most upset over the industry deciding to shy away from boss fights. (Actual boss fights, not "shoot it until it dies.") That'll probably never happen during our lif...

No jumping in Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, if you want

Jumping in videogames is destined to be an eternal struggle. Whether it's TimeSplitters or Bionic Commando, someone, somewhere, is going to get pissed off. I can't recall if there was a specific outcry for Rearmed 2, which ha...

TGS: Nathan Spencer has some new moves

Well, new to him at any rate. Capcom has released two gameplay trailers for Tokyo Game Show which have a focus on moves that Spencer can perform with his bionic arm in the upcoming Bionic Commando ReArmed 2. A couple of them...

PAX 10: Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 Klog hands-on interview

While talking with my good friend and E. Honda impersonator Gerald Hom of Capcom-Unity fame, the good man let some inside info slip. Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 would feature "the Klog." He then encouraged me to "check out the Klog!" I headed over to the game's kiosk to see what all the fuss was about. I won't spoil the rest. Check out the video to see "the Klog" for yourself.

E3 10: Holmes vs. Bionic Commando Rearmed

Yeah, so I choked pretty bad in this video. The NES Bionic Commando difficulty seems to be back for this sequel; one life, and I was dead after (I think) one hit, though it might have been two. I did get some more time with ...

E3 10: Bionic Commando Rearmed 2, mustaches, and you

Conan O'Brien may have cornered the market on fabulous, red-colored facial hair -- and I am immensely jealous of him for having done so -- but Bionic Commando Rearmed 2's Spencer, as shown in some killer concept art below, ha...

Capcom teams with Zazzle to outfit people in old games

You know, just moments ago I wrote a post about Capcom and a SSFIV-branded HDTV. It was a journey of incredulity, disbelief, and finally acceptance. Like a couple hadokens followed by a hearty serving of pound cake, I am read...
