This video player is garbage. Good thing it resumes from the last known position after you refresh.

Posted by BombaLuigi

holy crap, the commandos first-stage music totally reminded me of 'defender of the crown'

True. I've been watching everything on youtube and downloading the premium stuff since the relaunch.

Yeah, that $10 a pack is a bummer... Going to wait for the bundle pack with all the games, and even then I might just wait for a sale. :\

Savage Bees! They're so savage.

I like how in The Speed Rumbler, after the purple car crashes into another enemy van, the van that drops your car off runs into a tree and also explodes. WHO WILL DELIVER YOUR CAR THEN?

Anyone else think that renegade ops is kind of like a modern version of The speed rumbler?

Posted by ZagZagovich

@lljk_jasta: Truth! But only the NES version. Arcade was kind of crap.

Would have liked to see Jeff give The Speed Rumbler a go on non-classic mode.

A deadly bee weapon? Bees, my god.

I'm pretty sure those "apples" are tomatoes.

Aw yeah, is that John Matrix I see on the preview pic?!

Wow, the arcade version of the Commando music is terrible.
This is the real version.

As Jeff said, someone should really make a modern remake of Speed Rumbler, I'd love a modern post-apocalyptic vehicular combat GTA type game.

Ah, Commando...

Edited by jakkblades

Jeff makes a great MMO reference in this one. Are you cool/not cool enough to get it?

Posted by GasparNolasco

NO, NOT THE BEES!

Posted by melodiousj

Why... why is Exed Exes called Savage Bees?

Name change aside, I really like that game.

These videos being crushed down to 30FPS is only usually noticeable in older games like this, where certain effects were performed by turning sprites on and off on alternate frames.

If anything looks kind of weird, like disappearing rotor blades, that's why.

I was going to say that also, because I was thinking the exact same thing.

My computer froze somewhere between the 3 and 4 minute mark just as Ryan was yelling "Skulls!", the result was a continuous minute of demonically thunderous sonic assault.

Fuck Ryan Davis

Speed Rumbler is a sick name for a game. This makes me miss gameroom purely for the quick looks!

10 bucks for those 3 games? I dunno... I just bought Guacamelee for around that, so i'm good

I really liked Savage Bees/EXED EXES in the Capcom Classics Collection for PS2, especially since it was one of those very few occasions where they had created a new remixed soundtrack for it that was actually better than the original. Not that I disliked the original music (though I know that many did) but it did get kinda repetitive after a while.

Also, there actually was a licensed Mad Max game for the NES that was very much like Speed Rumbler, though I never managed to understand what I was supposed to do in it. You drove around in the wasteland with Max's cool black Interceptor and fought against dune buggies and stuff, but then you ran out of fuel and exploded, and I never managed to find out how to pick up fuel. There were barrels all over the place, but I couldn't find any way to pick them up, and if someone is interested in a slightly newer game of that kind, Grin, the ill-fated developers of Bionic Commando Rearmed created a game not too dissimilar back in 2002 titled Bandits: Phoenix Rising. It wasn't great, but it was more of an open world kind of thing, rather than the battle arenas of Twisted Metal.

NICE FIGHT !!

Edited by MattClassic

Jeff is more or less right. There never was a Commando II; it was just called Mercs outside Japan. The Japanese name for Commando was Senjo no Okami, which means Wolf of the Battlefield. Hence the XBLA/PSN sequel to Mercs/Senjo no Okami 2, Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando III.

Bonus: The arcade version (but not the NES version) of Bionic Commando was also marketed as a sequel to Commando. You play as the same guy, "Super Joe," who only showed up as a supporting character in Bionic Commando for the NES.
