Bionic Commando: Rearmed Reduced on PSN to Only $4.99

50°
257w 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, Bionic Commando 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...

Turtles in Time Remake Hitting XBLA, Possibly PSN and WiiWare

50°
259w ago - The 25th Anniversary Tour for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is traveling across the country right now, and reports are rolling in from those lucky enough to stop by one of the locations that a remake of Turtles in Time is currently in development.

To quote: The Alpha build of the game is being demoed on the Xbox 360 throughout the tour, but we're getting reports it could possibly makes its way to PSN and WiiWare as well, though there is no confirmation of that right now. One of our tipsters pointed us to the Twitter account for Hyperfludd (who stopped by and snagged some pics), but we've also found other sources confirming this game's existence.

Turtles in Time is arguably the best Turtles game ever, so remaking it is definitely a smart idea. Kind of like putting peanut butter on pizza.
