BC Weekly Field Report: #2Vote Now!

Gearoid Reidy, Thursday 12-06-2008, 03:08:00

Welcome to our second Weekly Field Report, or as we like to call it, the house-keeping edition. We’ve been tidying up here and discovered a few things that slipped down the back of our collective couches.

Who is Gottfried Groeder?

Way back in the prehistoric age of March 2008, we showed off this teaser for a new Bionic Commando character, foolishly promising the answers in "about a week’s time". Oh time, you do play such cruel tricks with us. Well, we finally got to the bottom of our “to-do” pile and there it was: “tell users about awesome new character”.

Groeder is the Rearmed version of the character known only as Bio-soldier in the original, who had such classic lines as “Joe is here, but you’re going to die here” and “It’s too early to feel safe. I’ll kill you here.” Now given a proper storyline and, you know, grammar, Groeder is a terrifying amalgamation of bionic and European, and just itching to make Spencer’s life a misery.

Read the full profile here.

Looked Around the Site Lately?

You might find more than you expected hidden amongst the narrow passageways and URLs of the community site.

For example, do you know about the Recon Map, your irregularly-updated guide to what’s going down in Ascension City?

Or the Classic Bionic Commando pages, which (no offense to the rest of our lovely-looking site), are the most beautiful places in these fine pages?

Or the Bionic Commando Rearmed concept art page? Huh? Didn’t know about that now, did ya? You think you’re so smart….

And if you do find something you like, don’t forget to tell others about it by clicking the RAD button to cast your vote for the coolest parts of our maze-like guide to all things BC.


Entries for our Exploding Head “Pop Goes the Dictator” competition have been totted up and the winners will be notified shortly! Don’t worry contestants – we have no forgotten about you and soon you’ll have a dictator’s exploding head on your chest, assuming you clear our crack team of exploding head experts who will be judging it. We’re also going to have another couple of competitions coming up here very shortly – stay tuned.

Sweary Bionic Commando Podcast: Tell Your Friends

You probably already know about our beep-laden podcast with 1Up’s Shane Bettenhausen, and Garnett Lee, and Giant Bomb’s Jeff Gerstmann, but are you keeping that information to yourself? We need you to get out there and spread the word of the podcast glory. You know how it is: you tell two friends, then they tell two friends, and so on until at least, oh, 8 people or so know about the podcast. So get on those message boards, social networking sites, and those planes that you use to write messages in the sky, and spread the good word!

Happy Birthday to Us

Finally, we thought we'd mention that we celebreated Capcom's 25th anniversary on June 11th. That means I'm ten months older than Capcom, making me Capcom's big brother, who occasionally beats it up and breaks its toys.

Click here to read a message from our revered CEO Tsujimoto-san, who was kind enough to gift us all a special anniversary bottle of wine. Birthday wishes, presents, donations etc. to the usual address!

And with that, we’re done. We’ll be back next week to tidy up some more business.
