This time last year, we’d just seen the releases of high profile titles such as BioShock 2, Dante’s Inferno, Heavy Rain and the North American and European releases of White Knight Chronicles and Star Ocean: The Last Hope International. In 2011, February was just as busy as last year, if not more so, with a huge number of games both released and announced.
After a disappointing full-fat 3D outing for Nathan “Rad” Spencer, Capcom is returning the Bionic Commando to safe territory with Bionic Commando Rearmed 2. This is not a surprising move, considering the first Rearmed was a critical success (it received a solid 86 average rating on Metacritic for its retro gameplay and presentation) and the financial risks are relatively small here because it is a low-budget PlayStation Network game. Capcom may very well be in a win-win situation.
Capcom has announced the European release date and price for Bionic Commando Rearmed 2. Nathan Spencer and his mechanical arm will be grappling his way onto the European PlayStation Store from 2 February. The game will be available for €14.99.
Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 is looking very good.
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
Capcom has released new screenshots for the upcoming sequel to Bionic Commando Rearmed. And… that’s it.
Bionic Commando Rearmed was a great remake of a classic game. We wanted more and now we’re finally getting it.
Sadly, GRIN is not developing the sequel since the studio closed down shortly after the retail release of Bionic Commando. Instead, the game is being developed by Fatshark.
Don’t let that worry you though, most of the team that worked on Bionic Commando Rearmed moved to Fatshark. The sequel is in good hands.
We were given the opportunity to try the game out for ourselves. Does the inclusion of a jump button really make that much of a difference?
Capcom is gonna take you for a ride!
Capcom’s financial results for the year ended 31 March don’t make pleasant reading; the company have reported a 73% fall in profits to £494.4m as annual sales dropped by 27% to 16m.
The company blame the “sluggish” sales on the delays for Super Street Fighter IV, Lost Planet 2 and the oversees release of Monster HunterTri which all slipped into the next fiscal year.
Here we are with the last ‘Deals of the Week’ for April 2010. This Friday, as every Friday, we deliver to you our readers our favourite PlayStation 3 game deals from across the Internet, including an incredible deal for Super Street Fighter IV fans…
Spencer can actually jump now!
Former members of the now defunct Swedish-based developers GRIN have started up a new studio named Might and Delight.
GRIN closed its doors last year following cash-flow problems which came from “too many publishers delaying their payments.”
Might and Delight main goal is to continue “creating remakes of classic games.”
The unequivocal failure of Bionic Commando has clearly knocked Capcom’s confidence in Western developers. The title which was outsourced to the now defunct Swedish developers Grinn only managed to shift 27,000 units in its first month in the U.S.
This has forced Capcom to rethink their strategy with only Japanese studios likely to be trusted with new IPs in the future.
Gameplay, graphics, storyline; these have always been the defining element in video games. Not to be outdone, the score of a game is becoming equally important.
Below are some of the games that have left lasting impressions, sometimes even more so than the gameplay itself. Rhythm games, such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band, are not included as they revolve around music, and let’s face it, we already know how awesome their soundtracks are.
The wait is finally over…for North America at least. Today, Capcom has released the patch that brings trophy support to Bionic Commando: Rearmed.
In order to enable trophies though, you’re going to have to manually delete your current save date and create a new one. Tis a small price to pay for the luminous goblets. So just exactly what trophies are there to earn? Let’s take a look…
It was actually quite some time ago when we were promised that Bionic Commando: Rearmed for the PSN would be getting trophies. We waited and wait, but to no avail…that is, until now.
Yes, almost a year later, our good friend John Diamonon over at the PlayStation.Blog has announce that Rearmed would be getting a patch real soon. There are also some other enhancements that will be coming with the patch but you’re not interested in those, are you?
Our paperboy did not have a long run. In fact, he didn’t even make it out of that neighborhood before word spread and the authorities were involved.
Always the optimistic one, our bionic protagonist made the best of his house arrest by earning a proctologist degree by mail. They should really make background checks before mailing degrees all willy-nilly.
Bad news for bionic corporate America; they have lost one of their own in this state of economic turmoil. Depending on whom you ask at his former office, the bionic middle manager was summarily dismissed as part of a strategic downsizing or because of his role in an unfortunate high-five celebration mishap.
Don’t feel too bad for him, our bionic friend has bounced back and found a job already. Nothing as cool as a fireman or profitable as a middle manager, but it puts food on his bionic table. He’s a paperboy.
Capcom have released the best trailer yet for the upcoming Bionic Commando. But there are some strange things you notice if you scrutinize the video. Well, maybe not, but we noticed a few odd likenesses during our first few hundred views.
