Bionic Commando devs called 'arseholes' by rivals

Bionic Commando Rearmed has set the "gold standard" for downloadable games, the game's producer has claimed.

Capcom's Ben Judd, producer on the Bionic Commando series, told VideoGamer.com that the Xbox LIVE, PSN and PC remix of the classic NES game has led to developers calling Capcom "arseholes" because of the high quality and cheap price of the game.

He said: "We've actually got phone calls from other developers saying 'you arseholes, now because you've made a game at such high quality and priced it at $10, now that's the gold standard. If we try and put out a game for $15 people are going to say, well what about Bionic Commando Rearmed? What if we put out a game that's just meta emulated, they're going say we're being greedy'. Because we've raised the bar to that level now we've got other developers on their toes, where they should be. There's a lot of potential there, but right now people are being too damn lazy. They're not paying the respect to the old classic games that they should."

With ur friend!! It brings back Contra on NES memories.

totally agree...decent retro game, but WipeOut HD sets the bar for a $10-15 game...at least according to reviews so far...and SSHD/Geometry Wars are already the best games for $10 either way...plus Braid crushes bionic commando from what I have seen...

nice try though...Sorry Capcom, you don't set standards anymore...everything you have made this generation so far has recieved above average hype with an average delivery...

Go ask the Ghost Recon community what a bunch of assholes those guys from GRIN are. Especially that dirtbag BoGrin that fronts that studio.
