Thanks for the update, man. As far as consoles go, I only own a Playstation 2 at the moment, so I won't be able to enjoy this remake on a TV (I only have an SD TV anyways), but I'm still very interested to see how this game turns out. Even though I probably won't be enjoying this remake, the original NES one was one of my favourite NES games of all time, and I'm glad to see them redoing it so that current generations of gamers can know the joy that is Bionic Commando.

I wonder if it'll have the same hitpoint system as the NES version. On the NES, enemies would drop little experience capsule things when you killed them, and if you collected enough of them, your life meter got longer (up to a maximum of 8 notches, if I remember correctly - it's been a long time). If you ended up dying, you'd start your next life with the full amount of life you'd earned, so the effect was permanent (well, until you shut the game off). As tedious as it sounds, I used to run back and forth on one of the earliest levels where these paratrooper guys kept falling in, just far enough to get them to respawn, and I'd kill them over and over and over just to be able to max out my health bar. Once I got it maxed out (which took a little while), I'd proceed to beat the game. I guess I'm a grind-a-holic even outside of RPGs. I used to be good enough at it to beat the entire game without dying, mainly because I played it so much (as I said, it was one of my all-time favourite NES titles, easily - money very well spent).

I'm off to watch the new vids now. Thanks again, man.

How will Rearmed be distributed on PC? Will it be a Windows Live Arcade title?

We will probably be looking to distribute it through multiple vendors including the usual suspects like Steam.

does anybody know how much this game is going to cost??
and whether there would be any price difference between PC and PS3 version.

If I get the pc version, probably I will use my saitek gamepad since it looks like the gameplay is suited for that better.

I'd be more interested (for nostalgia purposes) if this was the Arcade / C64 game I played many years ago instead of the NES one (though I hear good things about that).

I fired up the original NES Bionic Commando tonight to compare. It's amazing how closely they nailed the feel of controls in the remake. You wouldn't think an old NES game would hold up but it really does, still loads of fun. This is how retro game remakes should be.

I might try the challenge levels tonight. I believe i unlocked all of them.

If you try the NES version you will be surprised at how faithful a remake this was. The level design, even the controls feel nearly identical, just with a more modern graphics overhaul.

Only gripe i had with the game is i had to replace the game's .exe with a community made one because it wouldn't launch for me, and also install a legacy Physx driver or i would crash at start up with an error. Then i also needed to edit the resolution in a game system file or I'd just get a black screen. Sounds ridiculous just to get this game to run but all that was still actually worth it in the end. Excellent game.

Bah, in the UK we had ports from the arcade game (not the same as NES). C64 Bionic Commando was a good one, but the Amiga version was crap.

The later challenge levels get tough. It makes you move in a way that the normal game doesn't. You don't need close to the swinging skills that you do to play through the normal game. The last few challenge levels really make you understand the mechanics of the swinging. There were a few that I needed to look up on YouTube to figure out.

I played the normal game on hard, thinking I'd be a pro. I got my ass handed to me on the first level. Oddly, the first level is one of the hardest because you don't have any weapons or items and it involves a lot of enemies above you. The game sort of gets easier as you advance.

I'm playing the game on Linux through Proton. I didn't have to do anything with the exe file, but it did require an extra step of installing Physx to get it to work. Unfortunately, the same can't be said about the 'new' Bionic Commando game. That one won't start at all on Linux. But I heard that game kind of sucked.

I got that 3D Bionic Commando game as well since i never played it. Steam had both as a bundle deal for like $3.

I played the tutorial and first level. I am kind of intrigued so I'm going to give it a shot. Like the original game the swinging mechanic is a different kind of gameplay not many games offer, so its something new to mess around with.

I beat it last week. The last level is a bit of a grind.

Since I'm still having fun with it, I decided to go for the last medal in this game (no Steam achievements on this, only in-game medals). So I'm doing a run on Super Hard difficulty.

The diifficulty name is no lie. You're dead in two hits. Enemies respawn after leaving the edge of the screen. They shoot like crazy. And your weapon is so weak, it's basically a pea shooter.

You have to get good with timing your shots and reflecting the enemies bullets with the bionic arm. The bosses take a long time because they just soak up so much damage. And it's better to just swing past most enemies instead of engaging.

As before, the first level is really tough because you have no items. The second level (Area 04) with the infinite infantry boss is brutal. That long hallway with a bunch of enemies before the boss room takes some skill and luck.

Finally did it. That was difficult. Super Hard was really tough at first. Got a bit easier towards the middle once you increase your arsenal and get the hang of things. Then the last level is brutal.

Now I think I'll take a shot at the Castlevania Anniversary Collection to continue some nostalgia gaming.

Congrats. I bet you would breeze through the normal difficulty now with ease.

That Castlevania collection has a bunch of greats in there. But too bad they couldn't include the two best of the series, Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night. They must be saving those for separate releases.

[EDIT] Ahh, just checked and yes they re-released the The Dracula X Chronicles on current gen consoles which should still include the original versions as unlockable content - unless they removed that.

One issue with the Castlevania Collection is that playing through Proton on Linux results in the game crashing when you attempt to do a save state. So, unless I beat a game in one sitting, it looks like I'm going really old school with passwords.

For me, the big nostalgia ones in Castlevania were 2 and 3, since I had those for the NES.

Still, Rondo of Blood was really good. And SOTN was amazing. For some reason I only played SOTN once.

But it makes sense that they might do a second collection release. There are a lot of Castlevania games that they could pick from.
