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...

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 ...
