Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 jumping to PSN & XBLA next year

Gyroscopic sequel coming in 2011

The original in all its 8-bit glory

The original in all its 8-bit glory

In 2008, Capcom released an 2D iteration of one of its most beloved series, bringing back the classic gameplay of Bionic Commando but upgrading the game with HD visuals. This game was seen as many as the appetizer to the 2009 3D re-imagining of the series. Only one of the two games has been confirmed for a sequel, and it's not the big-budget blockbuster. In 2011, Capcom will be bringing Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

The game will include much of the same grapple-n-gun gameplay of the NES original and 2008 update, but will add a key element that many fans have been pining for since the beginning--the ability to jump. While seemingly minor as far as new features go, as players of the previous games will attest to, the new move has the ability to drastically change how Bionic Commando should play. Hopefully that change is for the better.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
