Bionic Commando Mini-Review

Bionic Commando

Publisher:  Capcom

Developer: Grin

Platforms: XBOX 360, PS3, PC

MSRP: $59.99

Grade:  B-

No one likes to read every word of a review, especially if you haven’t played the game yet.  It is nice to see what functions work, and which don’t but I think ultimately since I have little time before work today, and the fact that little to no one cares about this game I won’t bore you with the nitty-gritty.  Lets just get right down to it… I intended to make this review short, but I guess there was a lot more to say than I originally intended so enjoy.

A broken demo, not so broken now

So fresh off the presses comes a work around to the restrictive match-making in the Bionic Commando Demo.  I mentioned that I was able to get this to happen on the podcast, but I have since not been able to figure out how I did it again.  Now you can try this the next time your playing if you wanna play with some friends.

Faithful PnG readers, I want to apologize that I haven’t been on the ball lately and haven’t posted anything in the last two weeks.  I feel bad, so this is me coming out in the open and admitting I let you down.  Ok, now with that out of the way, how about a Bionic Commando impression, some brand new details on Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and to top it off a Red Steel 2 Trailer, which makes it look…. well I’ll let you decide.  Check it all out after the break.

png daily 4/29/09: PSP GO! (away)

please just die already

<cynicism>

Remember that one time when the PSP was new and shiny?  When you first laid your eyes on the gorgeous, hi-res finger print magnet display?  When your dreams were filled with the endless possibilities of  entertainment that might come forth from such a machine, like water from a faucet?  Remember when all those hopes shattered into a thousand pieces?  Because I do.  I remember all of it.  I also remember the P-2000 and the recent P-3000; more iterations of the same broken dream.  /emo.   Rumors have been popping up about a new PSP bastardization for a few weeks now.  Looks like there is some weight behind these rumors, according to 1up.com.  What does a new PSP mean for you?  Probably nothing, but here’s what we’re looking at (BTW, speaking of looking at, the pic above is not the actual new PSP, but an artist’s shoop of a PSP and a Sony Mylo 2, a device that is suspected to play a role in the new system’s design):

  • Likely to be dubbed the PSP GO!
  • Larger screen (I actually don’t think they said this, but come one, when don’t they make those things bigger?)
  • Internal flash drive (8 or 16 GB)
  • No UMD slot
  • 100+ downloadable titles at launch (including Gran Turismo Mobile, which gets high marks on my “who cares” scale)
  • No supposed 2nd analog (Pro: This will obviously not require new input programming, i.e. your old games are still good, provided you can play them. Con: GTFO FPS hopes)
  • Some form of slide, flip, etc. screen motion
  • Coming this Fall

I’m really trying to get excited for this… ok, that’s a lie.  I’m really trying to not sound like I could absolutely care less… close enough.  I don’t know, maybe someone out there has yet to feel the painful sting of Sony’s hand-held, in which case, what better time to do just that.

Don’t worry, all the bad news isn’t centered on the PSP, some of it is about the Wii as well.  In case your week wasn’t sucking already, Ubisoft decided to make sure and announced that it was officially making Red Steel 2.  Oh joy!  Hey hey now, stop shaking your heads.  It’s gonna be good this time: they have Wii MotionPlus!  What could go wrong?  (For Jeff, they might have made up for this by announcing that Splinter Cell: Conviction will be hitting before Christmas)

I’ll leave you all with one last tidbit.  Capcom’s new Bionic Commando will drop in demo form today on Xbox Live (sorry PSNers).   The controls are supposed to be pretty interesting/difficult, which might be a nice challenge to the gamers who actually remember the original.  In case you forgot: demo = free = get it.
