GameSpot TGS 2008: Bionic Commando Updated Hands-On

GameSpot writes: "Let's face it: You don't become Nathan Spencer overnight. Even the bonafide bionic-armed badass who serves as the central character of Capcom's upcoming Bionic Commando had to start somewhere, and so will you in the game. One of our first stops this morning on the show floor of the 2008 Tokyo Game Show was the Capcom booth, where we got a brief chance to check out the new Bionic Commando build, specifically the new tutorial that will help you get the most out of Nathan's awesome appendage.

The tutorial starts off with the most basic action you'll need to master in BC: the arm swing. When Nathan approaches a ledge, you extend his bionic arm by pressing the left trigger (or L2 button on the PlayStation 3). Once it latches on, you can keep hold of it by holding down the trigger; by letting go at the right moment, you can swing through to the next ledge. The timing on this is tricky at first, and you'll be thankful for the tutorial's quick reset as a result, but soon enough you'll have figured out the timing for the basic arm-swing."
