Bionic Commando: Rearmed

this is seriously the only new game i actually have a STRONG desire to play.

Bionic Commando: Rearmed

it’s basically just a remake of the Bionic Commando for the NES (which is one of the best NES games ever made).  there are some new things added, but none of them sound like they would HURT anything. just as long as the original gameplay is still there, this game should rule.

check it:




 

the NEW junk:

  • A health bar replaces the previous system, meaning players collect health items from enemies to restore health, as opposed to gaining more hit points.
  • Players can now shoot their arm to grab barrels and throw them at enemies. The arm can also be enhanced to grab enemies and use them as human shields.
  • Weapons can now be changed during gameplay, with each weapon having stronger or weaker impact depending on the enemy. (For example, the default Revolver is effective against human enemies, but weaker against robots.)
  • Boss battles have been remade from scratch. The final boss of the original game is now a fully fledged level.
  • A co-operative mode is featured, with the enemy and boss AI changing to accommodate the extra player.
  • Hacking into the enemy network now involves navigating a three-dimensional puzzle to hack into the enemy’s communications. Extra points (or a health bonus if player has incomplete health bar) is also rewarded upon completion.
  • The game also features challenge rooms which involves using the bionic arm to get from start to finish in the fastest time possible.
  • Numerous competitive multiplayer modes are added, including ‘Don’t Touch the Floor” in which only hitting the very bottom of the level kills the player, and weapons only knock the player back.
  • Force feedback has been implemented when using the bionic arm, firing weapons, and other events
  • In-game art designed by Shinkiro 

 

and the game features the original music too, just remixed to be MOODY and shit.

  1. This looks so awesome!!!

    Are you going to buy a wii???

  2. the answer to this is no.

  3. Sorry, Ryan, it’s only for X360 and PS3.

    On that note, I’ve been meaning to download it but I’d have to re-subscribe to Xbox Live. So basically I’d be spending $7 to subscribe and then another $10 to download. Durn it.

  4. well… it’s $15 for PC, so you wouldn’t really be spending much more than that…

    i don’t think my graphics card is awesome enough, otherwise i would download it RIGHT NOW.

  5. I’m just going to wait until there are a few more Xbox Live games worth buying and then do the Dew.
