Bionic Commando: May 2009

I don't even know why I'm writing anything else to go with this story. Everything you need to know is in the headline.

STATE OF THE ART GRAPHICS, SON
Along with the costume information for Street Fighter IV, Capcom has announced a tighter release window for GRIN's Bionic Commando. The console versions of the game will drop in May. The PC version will hit in "the following months."

You know, I could surround that bit of info with a bunch of boilerplate stuff about the game, about how you're a dude with a robot arm, and they're going to execute you, but a bomb goes off and they realize that you're the only hope for the free world, but I'm just going to guess that you already know what Bionic Commando is. I've been way into it the last few times I've seen it, though, so I'll just say that I'm pretty excited to see it ship. May. Mark your calendars.

damn, i totally forget about this game. why does it take so long for them to release this already??

Posted by RHCPfan24

Yeah, hopefully it is as good as Rearmed.

I am surprisingly uninterested in this game....Capcom has yet to impress me with one of their action games on current gen.  Dead Rising was neat, but there were some serious issues, Lost Planet was okay for multiplayer, Devil May Cry didn't show any innovation and repeats itself halfway through and RE5 demo didn't impress me at all, seriously like a less interesting RE4.  Whatever, I guess I'll give them a...let's see here...a fifth chance to impress me.

Can't wait for it!

Here come the "Swinging" jokes. Brace yourselves.

The game looks awsome though.

WHOA JEFF! That's the longest, most in-depth preview I've ever laid my two eyes on! I'm going to start a petition about how much you deserve a raise!.....okay maybe I should just leave the cheesy jokes to you.

hehe Anyway, this is great news! I'm dying to get this game. May is WAYYY too far away but at least they'll have plenty of time to polish the game and now I actually have a release date for Bionic Commando.

yey awesome big fan of the original

Yeah I definitely want to pick it up. I wonder if the PC version will have a crazy community backing it with awesome vertical multiplayer maps. I honestly wish I didn't have to spend my tax refund on college this summer so I could get a nice gaming rig up; my Steam account has so many games I can't play on it.

Guess that's why I have a console!

Not totally convinced yet, but I've got faith after seeing the pure effort and awesome words from the dev. team. Should be ace.

This is why I love Giant Bomb, they put out the news on the title on the news ,unlike Kotaku which makes you click every story to just read up on release dates or whatever. Giant Bomb, power to the people and uh, delivering it.. And stuff... Awesome still!

Posted by Tordah

Awesome!

Posted by DevilishSix

I am really looking forward to seeing how this turned out, please let the swing mechanics be tight, also hopefully Prototype will be out by May.

From all the summer hype last year, you would think it would have been released in Fall 2008.  It's probably better they delayed it with the glut of games that are out right now. Who has time to look at anything new right now? I know I don't...
