Comments Off on Bionic Commando Gets Downloadable Remake
Capcom recently revealed plans to release a downloadable remake of Bionic Commando entitled Bionic Commando: Master D Revival Plan (subtitled Hitler’s Revival in Japan).
This XBLA and PSN release is in addition to Capcom’s upcoming full 3D remake/sequel of the series and will be a completely separate title.
Master D Revival Plan is reportedly a 3D title that “promises to maintain the flavor of the original title,” which presumably means side scrolling gameplay and (hopefully) a firm adherence to the original’s pseudo-adventure-game style.
A Japanese version of the downloadable game is planned for Spring, but release plans for an American or European version have yet to be announced.
Want to be rid of double-A batteries? Red Octane is here to help.
The Guitar Hero makers are offering a USB-rechargeable lithium battery pack that works with the new Guitar Hero III wireless controllers for PS3, PS2, and Xbox 360. Yes: the same device works with all three.
You can grab one for $20.00 USD off their website.
If you haven’t yet purchased Guitar Hero III, they offer bundles of the game, the recharge kit, and a whole mess of other stuff included for $130.00 USD.
Less than 24 hours after the game’s release, hackers have found a way to reinstate the violent scenes in the PSP version of Manhunt 2.
The hack restores the game to its original full-gore version, which means that Rockstar didn’t cut offensive material in order to get the M rating, they simply disabled it.
The question is, did they follow that route for simple expediency, or because they knew they could count on the gaming community to find a way to play the game the way Rockstar originally intended? Perhaps a bit of both.
Let the countdown to the ESRB’s inevitable freakout begin. I figure we’ll also be hearing from a certain Floridian lawyer before long, too.

Comments Off on PS3 Gets Lost Planet With Extras
I actually knew this a few days ago, but Capcom has officially announced that Lost Planet, previously a Windows PC and Microsoft Xbox 360 exclusive, will be coming to the PlayStation 3 early next year.
The PS3 version benefits from the delay by including 16 different multiplayer maps and new playable characters that weren’t available in previous retail versions.
Overall I found Lost Planet to be so-so, but tooling around in those Vital Suits was a bundle of fun.
