The character seen on the poster in the Bionic Commando Rearmed trailer is not, as some Internet rumors would have you believe, the Street Fighter character M. Bison.

Bionic Commando Rearmed – FAQ

Gearoid Reidy

With the announcement of Bionic Commando Rearmed today, we thought we'd clear the air on a number of issues before any of the crazy rumors get rolling across the Internet. OK, given that the game was a secret until today, to say that these questions are "frequently asked" is a bit of a misnomer, but just roll with it, OK? There's lot of juicy information in here...

BC FAQ. FTW?

Gearoid Reidy

Since the announcement last October that Bionic Commando would be returning to the world of videogames, there have been some questions that constantly crop up, and some myths that refuse to die. For the benefit of fans around the world, here are the questions that we are most frequently asked. And since questions alone wouldn't be much good, we've gone ahead and given the answers too.

Use it as your desktop or online avatar. Or alternatively, douse it in holy water and claw your eyes out from the sheer horror.

A Very Capcom Christmas

Gearoid Reidy

Greetings from Capcom R&D in Osaka on this Christmas Day. The Japanese do not celebrate the most holy of days, the birth of Santa, in the same way as the West - everybody still goes to work. Even us foreigners!

Wired into the community

Gearoid Reidy

Welcome everybody to the Bionic Commando community site.

In the crazy fast-paced world of the videogames industry, a title can be born, have a few sequels and fade into obscurity in only a couple of years. That makes it all the more amazing that twenty years after its release, Bionic Commando still means something to fans. Just think of how many Tetris games have come out since 1988, while our beloved Bionic Commando has only had two handheld remakes!
