Three galleries for three Capcom games. I was going to post some Ghost Trick and Okamiden galleries, but DS games simply don’t represent well in these kinds of stills.
Bionic Commando Rearmed 2
I’m cautiously optimistic about this sequel. I like the colorful look of it, but it’s missing something. I don’t know what it is yet, but it’s missing something. It certainly isn’t the ability to jump, because it’s included in the sequel.
When I (and many people who care) think of the developer GRIN, we are reminded of the much beloved Bionic Commando: Rearmed. We don’t like to think about GRIN’s trio of recent “failures”: Bionic Commando, Wanted: Weapons of Fate and Terminator: Salvation.
Perhaps we should have because, as of today, GRIN is no more. The Swedish developer officially shut its doors today citing “an unbearable cashflow situation” as the cause. It’s a tough to keep a company of 200+ afloat without any money.
From GRIN’s ashes comes Outbreak Studios which consists of a small contingent of GRIN employees who will dedicate their efforts towards the downloadable games space.
Our mission is to develop titles for Xbox 360 (XBLA), PS3 (PlayStation Store), Games for Windows Live, PSP Go and iPhone. We also deliver online components for AAA titles, both existing or upcoming.
Good for them. There’s plenty of room for quality downloadable titles like Bionic Commando: Rearmed. I look forward to their future offerings.
2008’s spring season was clear cut with GTAIV — it was the game to get and that was that. This year doesn’t have a blockbuster hit to gravitate towards, instead there are a handful of noteworthy titles you should consider. The past month was a bit of a lull, but the calm is over with the release of some original games and questionable sequels throughout the month of May.

Seventeen BionicCommando Screenshots
Instead of working on this post, I was trying out Plants vs Zombies. Entertaining? Definitely. And for just $9.99 USD via Steam, it’s mine. I’ll be playing it on my Mini 9. I urge you all to try the demo if you enjoy tower defence games.
This batch of Bionic Commando screens look a bit more appealing than the last, but I’m not convinced yet.
Captivate ’09′s batch of Bionic Commando screenshots were released for us peasants today. Since they’re from Capcom, they were resized down for your viewing pleasure. I’ve got to say that my impressions for this game has waned a bit after reading some of the Xbox 360 multiplayer impressions and some of the single player impressions from the Bombcast.
These screenshots below aren’t doing it for me either. I’m really not a fan of those jungle shots.
