Bionic Commando: Rearmed News

First thing’s first, the PSN version of Bionic Commando: Rearmed will have more content and extras than the XBLA version, just so that Capcom shows us that they really do care about the PS3 more.

Ben Judd, the producer/rock star has this to say:

Welcome to the first installment of our weekly Bionic Commando: Rearmed column. The folks here at the PlayStation.Blog have been kind enough to give us some space to strut our Bionic stuff. Don’t worry, I promise there will not be an excess of swinger jokes.

To kick off this edition, we’d like to mention some of the “PSN specific” content that you can expect for Rearmed. There will be Dualshock 3 support, because we all know that games that vibrate are better and besides… there really is no reason not to implement a feature that has become the industry standard. Also, Rearmed is one of the only PSN games to feature Remote Play support. This one wasn’t as easy to add and, matter of fact, there is one point where we had to “creatively” reprogram the controls to give players the illusion of using 2 sticks (you’ll know when you see it). The classic 2D side-scrolling graphics really fit with the PSP and just make the PSN version all the more cooler.

Of course there is one more VERY cool surprise for those of you who purchase the PSN version… but that is another story for another time.

So if Rearmed looks like it might be up your alley, come visit the “Top Secret” crew over at www.bioniccommando.com, where you can read the weekly serial comic, listen to one of the most ill-advised Japanese-publisher podcasts – Top Secret: The Bionic Commando Podcast, and, of course, listen to music from popular video game rockers, the BCR soundtrack, and the original 8-bit Bionic Commando music, all on the Bionic Commando Music Player.

In the meantime, check this space again in about a week for update number 2!

Medals
“The FSA awards Medals to only the bravest soldiers for outstanding service above and beyond the call of duty. There are 12 medals to collect in total, with something to suit every type of soldier, from brawlers to thinkers.”

The 7th Medal for Bionic Commando: Rearmed on the PSN!

To get Pacifist Pride you have to get past any area without shooting your gun and solely on swinging, grenades and dodging.

“Also, this is a big month for you PSN gamers as 1942: Joint Strike, the next installation of the classic 194X shooter series, finally arrives on the PLAYSTATION Network on July 31, 2008. Spread the word! See you soon!”

Bionic Cammando: Rearmed's Haley, a Dangerous Chooper Pilot!

Haley
“Haley is the FSA’s finest helicopter pilot, who transports Nathan “Rad” Spencer through dangerous Imperial territory. From a safe altitude, Spencer is then parachuted into enemy encampments.”

Haley is considered “reckless” due to how she pilots her chopper and has many medals and commendations. She claims that she has “more stones than any other pilot in the force.”

Medals
“The FSA awards Medals to only the bravest soldiers for outstanding service above and beyond the call of duty. There are 12 medals to collect in total, with something to suit every type of soldier, from brawlers to thinkers.”

The 7th Medal for Bionic Commando: Rearmed on the PSN!

To get Pacifist Pride you have to get past any area without shooting your gun and solely on swinging, grenades and dodging.

Weapons: Hagle Breaker
The 13-gauge “Hagle Breaker” Assault Shotgun is a short-range firearm that is useless in long-range and is the most useful against the Imperial humans, not the machines and shields. It also allows you to start a momentous swing with its kick-back.

“Also, this is a big month for you PSN gamers as 1942: Joint Strike, the next installation of the classic 194X shooter series, finally arrives on the PLAYSTATION Network on July 31, 2008. Spread the word! See you soon!”
