Bionic Commando: Rearmed Reduced on PSN to Only $4.99

279w ago - Producer Ben Judd has announced today that Bionic Commando: Rearmed has been reduced to only $4.99 on PSN.

To quote: As some of you may already know, [Register or Login to view links] will be released on May 19th for the PLAYSTATION 3. It's one of the few big releases in May to feature a 20-plus-hour-long single-player campaign and several multiplayer modes. Oh yeah, it also has a really damn cool swing mechanic.

Speaking of the swing mechanic, it's taken a VERY long time to make it into exactly what we wanted it to be. The game, for very obvious visual reasons, gets compared to Spider-man a lot. They both have a swing mechanic, but Bionic Commando plays very differently from Spider-man in that it uses a skill-based mechanic. Just as the name suggests, if you want to get better at the game, you need to increase your skill level.

There are a lot of games these that put you on auto-pilot straight to the end with very few deaths or real skill-based challenges. The thinking behind this strategy is that players nowadays don't want to be frustrated and want to have their fun right away. Well, that's good in theory, but some of the best and most memorable games I've played challenged you to overcome the obstacles set before you.

There is a certain...
 

Capcom: No Online Play for Bionic Commando: Rearmed on PSN

100°
294w ago - Capcom producer Ben Judd shared his opinion on Bionic Commando: Rearmed with Gamasutra recently, stating that excluding online play from Rearmed was "the right choice."

To quote: "After seeing the large amount of headaches, additional production time and cost that comes with adding online, I'm glad we made the choice not to include it."

He noted that many digitally distributed games are plagued with online problems and that "additional sales would not have been equivalent to the additional pains" needed to add online play to the game.

While we certainly have to agree that digitally distributed games have their share of online problems - something any XBLA user can tell you - we can't help but imagine the glories online play could have brought to Bionic Commando: Rearmed.
