Bionic Commando: Rearmed available for 400 Points (Update)

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 Microsoft Points. This, according to Major Nelson’s math, is a 50 percent savings. (I failed Microsoft Space Dollars 101.)

This offer comes at the perfect time. There’s no better way to suppress your window fogging enthusiasm for Bionic Commando (releases Tuesday) than by playing the demo and checking out what Grin was able to do with the classic.

Well, no better way short of creating your own grappling device. Which, by the way, is not a way to travel if you enjoy solid knees, a straight nose, and a clean criminal record.

[Update: Whoa. Major Nelson was given bad intel. This is not the Deal of the Week, and it’s still 800 Microsoft Points.]

[Update 2: OK. Scratch all of the above, minus the update. Bionic Commando: Rearmed XBLA will go on sale May 25. The actual Deal of the Week is the H/V pack for Marvel Ultimate Alliance.]
