New Bionic Commando: Rearmed Update Includes TROPHIES and More! – UPDATE

John Diamonon's Avatar + Posted by John Diamonon on Jun 18, 2009 // Product Marketing Manager, Capcom

UPDATE: Due to the massive amount of comments (thanks for the goodies, John D), we have disabled the comments section of this post to keep things running smoothly.

First of all, happy two year anniversary PlayStation Blog!

Bionic Commando Rearmed Trophies!

So to celebrate, we’re going to make good on a promise we made a while back. After all of the constructive (sometimes, brutally constructive) feedback from the community, Capcom USA and GRIN decided to go back to the lab and work on an update for Bionic Commando Rearmed. But wait, it gets deeper. Not only are we adding trophy support (that’s right son), those over-delivering, son-of-a-guns got a little crazy and are offering a bit more:

New “Normal” difficulty setting. In this setting, the following changes are made:

  • When you die, you respawn at the last solid ground or checkpoint
  • The level Albatross B was cut
  • The ability to reel out the cable when hanging or swinging to its full length
  • If the player swings into a wall, they will no longer disconnect and be thrown away from the wall. Instead, they will keep connected and reel in
  • Unlimited lives

Super Joe Machine Gun bug fix:

  • When upgraded, the weapon also becomes more powerful in addition to the larger clip
  • Fixed for all difficulty levels.

I hope all of you recognize the important role you play in helping us make better games. Our dialogues on PlayStation Blog and the Capcom Unity forums were the primary motivators for this update, and as long as this open communication is done constructively, good things can and will happen (Honestly, all the Eff Crapcom stuff didn’t help the process, lol). We may not be able to follow through on every request from the community, but I guarantee you, we are listening. Thanks to all of you for the feedback and the involvement, please keep it up!

So, to recap, the score is:

Vocal PS Community – 1
Vocal Capcom Accountants – 0

When does the update go live you ask? Well, it’s currently in QA, so it should be available real soon.

RMGL-T2BL-GHAE
4AF7-CJBE-2AK2
CAPH-5ABH-NNR5
9GQC-QPBM-MCEF
K279-2CB8-AD4P

Friends?

Warm regards,
John “Hiero9D3” Diamonon

P.S. The magic numbers are 250, 500, 750, 1000, 1250, 1500, 1750 and 2000. Same rules apply. No consecutive posting but you can post more than once. PM me if your comment lands on these numbers. You get a choice of Flock, BCR, 1942, Age of Booty, Mega Man 9 or SFHD Remix. Enjoy!

And if you are feeling generous John, hit me with a code for Flock on the Capcom-Unity site. :)

The save corrupting bug reported by linesbegintoblur is the same bug I was referring to. When you exit challenge rooms (sometimes), the game crashes and corrupts your save file.
