Bionic Commando


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...


[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. Develope...


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...


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 P...




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,...


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...


The fine folks over at GameTrailers have a great video preview of Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 up and it lays out almost everything you wanted to know about the game. From jumping, to upgrades to new level styles it shows most ...


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...


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...


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...


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.


That picture -- taken from the debut trailer for Mega Man Universe -- still gives me nightmares. Anyway, here's what Capcom has in store for us at its PAX booth (#652): Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Dead Rising 2 Sengoku Basara: Samur...


Nathan Spencer looks to be giving Haggar a run for his money in the awesome moustache department. Check out that closeup of the 'stache he's sporting in Bionic Commando: ReArmed 2. Though not as majestic as the facial ha...


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 ...


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...


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...


Capcom's next-gen Bionic Commando console game might have been a "miss" both critically and at retail, but most were in agreement that its digital download counterpart, Bionic Commando Rearmed, was an astounding success. So ...


The bunch responsible for graciously giving the world Bionic Commando: Rearmed has founded a studio of its very own: Might&Delight. Is that an amazing name for a company or what? As the tags for this post probably gave aw...


"The Memory Card" is a seasonal feature that dissects and honors some of the most artistic, innovative, and memorable videogame moments of all time. I have witnessed a multitude of videogame moments over the years t...


GRIN’s situation was as dire as recent reports indicated. Following several office closures and heavy layoffs, GRIN announced that the studio is no more. In a somber message on its official Web site, founders Ulf and Bo...


Bionic Commando -- the new one, not Rearmed or the NES classic -- is now available for PC at retail stores and Steam for $39.99. Actually, scratch that. If you pre-purchase from Steam, you can save a few bucks; also, there's ...


Yesterday it appears that a patch was released for Bionic Commando: Rearmed over PSN. The update is a bit of a mixed bag, unless you're a total wuss and can't beat the game as it is. See it does allow for Trophy support, whic...


"It's worth checking out to play with the swing mechanics and to see the game's impressive visuals," Conrad wrote in the Destructoid review of Bionic Commando, "but I wouldn't recommend wasting more than a few ...


[Destructoid's Japanese correspondent, 50ft. Samurai, takes a look at last week's "Gaijin" game sales in Japan.]As reported here on Destructoid a couple weeks back, Bionic Commando managed to wrangle a surprising 34...


[Destructoid's Japanese correspondent, 50ft. Samurai, reports in on how Capcom's Bionic Commando is faring in Japan.] Bionic Commando, as you have heard, did not exactly set the world on fire. Despite a lengthy development pr...


Perhaps you saw what we thought of Capcom's Bionic Commando. We didn't give it a terrible score. It's just that it wasn't anything special to us. It didn't commando our attention, you might say.In fact, this reboot of the bel...

Web-based leaderboards for the multiplayer arm of Bionic Commando are now live and functional. Over the weekend, Capcom’s Seth Killian updated his Capcom-Unity blog and noted the working status of the Xbox LIVE and Play...


Bionic Commando is a game I think very few of us ever saw coming. Sure, the NES game is a classic and very popular with American audiences but it had been so long that it was hard to imagine a follow-up would ever occur. Due ...


I greet this story with some skepticism, because it comes from Britain's most popular tabloid dishrag The Sun (which I won't be linking to), and if you follow UK "journalism" at all, you'll know that the British tab...


Microsoft’s latest Deal of the Week is relevant, guys.  For this week only, you’ll be able to download Grin’s Bionic Commando: Rearmed for 400 Microsoft Points instead of the typical retail price of 800...


The new Bionic Commando hasn't even hit shelves yet but in this day and age games have sequels before they're even created. So how do we know that we might be getting a sequel to Bionic Commando some time in the future? A ser...


Starting today and continuing on until May 21, the PlayStation Network version of Bionic Commando: Rearmed is going to cost only $4.99. At that price, you'd have to be borderline crazy not to get it. In case you hadn't heard,...


Bionic Commando demo time limit got you down? Now there's a work-around that lets you invite your friends into a match, create a private match, change time limit to your liking, and even just explore on your own. Here's how y...


We tip our hats to Capcom for all of the PC love. They've been pretty serious about bringing their games to Windows PCs, and that comitment continues with some of their biggest franchises, all coming this summer.Resident Evil...


Last time, Nathan Spencer was working for the fire department. Unfortunately, he was a little too rough at his job and killed a poor little kitty. Out of a job, Nathan searched for a new place to work. Well, somehow he got lu...


Capcom dropped its multiplayer demo for Bionic Commando today, exclusively on Xbox LIVE Marketplace. I have to admit, I couldn't spend more than 10 minutes with the thing. That mostly had to do with the fact that the game sim...


No, really. I couldn't make this kind of stuff up if I tried. Hit the jump to watch a clever little viral video from the fine folks at Capcom, who thought it might be worth a laugh to see Nathan Spencer try his hand at a new ...


[Editor's note: Capcom UK held another Gamer's Day last week and four UK Dtoiders attended the little event. Check out what they think of the game. -- CTZ] Capcom have had a good year so far with the recent releases of Street...


You've probably never wondered why Capcom's latest Bionic Commando game is rated M, but we're going to tell you anyway because the story is quite interesting. According to the publisher, the reason for the rating isn't becaus...
