“Our experience with Bionic Commando has demonstrated the difficulty of outsourcing the development of new title to overseas companies.” — Capcom statement
Holy fucking spin job Batman! Or maybe it was just a atrociously bad game and premise to begin with. Bionic Commando Rearmed wasn’t better simply because it was nostalgic throwback to whimsical times past, Capcom, it was just better. Don’t be afraid of 2D.
Games with guns, macho male protagonists and “I really wanna be taken seriously by Hollywood” stories are starting to wear thin. Developers, proceed at your own risk, lest ye end up like Grin. And one more thing: You fucking ruined the Bionic Commando brand with that 3-D, Gears of War main character dreadlocks bullshit.
OK, love being right. I said Capcom was going to totally piss all over the Bionic Commando name with their 3D “hardcore gamer” update, and they did. Awful title. Indicative of how sick the industry is when it comes to innovation and bowing down to the vocal minority hardcore crowd.
Is going to be atrocious. Did Capcom lose a bet with another publisher or something?
