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 chiptune medley com...

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 more positive reac...

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, who is now sport...

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 lifetime, thankful...

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 happens to featur...

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 the game after ...

Capcom teams with Zazzle to outfit people in old games

Bionic Commando patch is up, makes PS3 owners girlie men
