Keep the remakes coming, Capcom!

I bought Bionic Commando Rearmed from the Playstation Store last week and I've been loving it. I was never really interested in Capcom's retail games, but their downloadable stuff is really impressing me. The upcoming release of Mega Man 9 has me excited. However, I do want to see a remake of Mega Man 2 (which I've heard is the best Mega Man) with HD sprites and graphics, as well as enhanced gameplay. There's also probably a ton of Capcom games I never played that they could probably get me to buy if they made remakes. Keep the remakes coming, Capcom!


Bionic Commando Rearmed - Impressions


On Thursday I download Bionic Commando Rearmed from the Playstation Network. Out of the four games I've purchased from the Playstation Store so far, this is definitely the best. Bionic Commando Rearmed is a remake of an old NES game I never played. The premise is simple: you are a commando with a grappling hook for an arm. You must complete insane stunts to traverse 2D levels using your grappling hook. Your ultimate goal is to stop the Imperials from executing some devious and sinister plan created during an unspecified war in the 20th century (take a wild guess) called Project Albatross. The game is loads of fun and has made me a believer in Digital Distribution. Full review to come.

Out of town for a week - "feel free to spam this blog" edition

Hey guys! As some of you may already know, I'm leaving tomorrow morning to Washington, D.C. for a leadership seminar where I can learn how to bend people to do my bidding! Hopefully there won't be nuclear fallout while I'm there. I'm hoping by the time I get back on August 2nd, all of my currently pending submissions will be accepted. Regardless, I want to hear your comments on the amazing AndrewGaspar.

Feel free to spam this blog with pointless comments. The more irrelevant it is, the more points you get. But remember, the points mean nothing on this show.

Gaming Update - 7/22/2008

Today I bought Super Stardust HD from the PSN for $9.99. I haven't played much of it yet, but it's lots of fun. Plus, trophies... =P

I also played some of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. This game is a classic. It is one of my favorite games from PS2. Usually games based on movies suck, but not so with this adaptation. I recommend this to anybody who owns a PS2 or backwards compatible capable PS3. You should be able to find it used on the cheap.
