Bionic Commando Premiere: Retrospective Video Feature

Unlike most game franchises that have been around for nearly 20 years, Bionic Commando hasn't glutted the market with spin-offs and half-baked follow-ups. In fact, apart from a well-received semi-sequel for the Game Boy Color back in 1999, the world has only seen Bionic Commando recently in compilation form. Thankfully that long wait for some new arm-swinging action is about to come to an end with Capcom's upcoming Bionic Commando for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Yesterday, the world learned about how the process of creating this hot-looking game has been a truly worldwide effort, with input coming in on the game from Japan, North America, and Sweden. In today's video piece, you'll hear from Nobuyuki Matsushima, head of Capcom's consumer games division, about the history of the original Bionic Commando game, particularly what it was like working at Capcom during the development of that ground-breaking title.

MAN, that was my favorite game on the NES!!! And yet I'm still finding it hard to get excited about the new installment. The trailer just didn't come off seeming as exciting as the original game was. There was a lot of platforming strategy w/ the bionic arm in the first game... and I didn't really get a sense of that from the new trailer.

I don't know if they can make the game translate well into 3D... and I sure didn't like how freakin huge they made the new guy's bionic arm.
