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

John Diamonon's Avatar Posted by 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

Trophies are nice, but you know what’s necessary? The bug that crashes the game while saving. PLEASE tell me you’re addressing that! :D

    I\’m not familiar with that, but let me look into it.

lol nice one, way to show them how ‘beyond the call’ means more than just ‘what we were hoping for’ ^^

Delriach said:

June 18th, 10:07 am

I hope I can get a 1942 code. Only game I don’t have from Capcom aside from Rocketmen… and nobody wants that!

    Don\’t hate on Rocketman…he was just misunderstood.

StrykerIsland said:

The end of your post confuses me John. What are you referring to with the numbers?

LokeSTL said:

June 18th, 10:09 am

Thanks John! Now time for people to put their money where their mouth is. I expect to see the new BC’s sales numbers jump after the Patch drops.

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

carno_US said:

June 18th, 10:09 am

Stallone1993 said:

June 18th, 10:09 am

What are those codes? I punched em in and nothing happened

DrPirate said:

June 18th, 10:09 am

@ 10, I own every capcom game except 1942, hopefully I can score it today :D

alexbhp said:

June 18th, 10:09 am

So If I hit post 250 I get a code for BCR? Oh Man…. My productivity at work is officially at 0%

    John Diamonon said:

    June 18th, 10:14 am

    don\’t worry, i consistently run at about 22%

evolgenius said:

June 18th, 10:09 am

This is awesome! Thank you so much.

And eff all the haters; the new Bionic Commando is awesome so go buy it. Unless you’re afraid of a little challenge mixed in with your fun, of course.

BlindsideDork said:

I am curious on if the Trophies are crazy hard MM9.

ShadOforce said:

June 18th, 10:09 am

Where’s Fat Princess?!! Argh!
At least give us a release date.
Remember this?:

“Will have a confirmed date for you soon!”

Yeah.

tolkienfanatic said:

June 18th, 10:10 am

Boo. All the codes were taken by the time I got here T_T

Edgeward34 said:

June 18th, 10:10 am

Awesome!

Question, what exactly is Albatross B? Is it the section with the flipping platforms? I hope not because it’s my favorite part, despite the massive frustration it initally gave me.

St_Chilango said:

June 18th, 10:10 am

Oh man sweet! I got this during the $4.99 deal and im so glad i did. Now i got insentive to finish the game!

Dramlek said:

June 18th, 10:10 am

Holy crap..I bought this on 360..Gonna get it on PS3 now. Thanks Capcom and sorry about the NPDs on the next gen version. Bad month for a release against UFC.

LokeSTL said:

June 18th, 10:10 am

Oh how I love these races!!!

KIDamazin said:

June 18th, 10:10 am

What are the codes for? Free BCR? Anyways, great news! You betta give us trophies. -.-

carno_US said:

June 18th, 10:11 am

thanks a lot for the patch, too bad about bionic commando sales, but rearmed was amazing, I would love another reimagined classic done by grin

devildog820 said:

June 18th, 10:11 am

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.

@20

I punched in the last one (when I saw there was only 1 comment at the time) and redeemed a voucher for BCR which was why I was so happy.

majiesto said:

June 18th, 10:11 am

This is awesome! Cannot wait for the update

Revolutionary said:

June 18th, 10:11 am

Awesome.
I was actually holding out on my Rearmed purchase because of the trophy patch (didn’t want to go through the game twice).
I’ll definitely be buying it once the patch comes out – no reason not to, now!!

HighLuxury said:

June 18th, 10:12 am

AWESOM pic John.

Seriously, that describes all sorts of win for us trophy… er, sluts :D.

Will gladly pull BC back in and complete it for the trophies Ive been waiting for so long.

Also getting Bionic Commando PS3!… sorry to hear about the NPD though :(

Stallone1993 said:

June 18th, 10:12 am

I tried all the codes when this blog post went up…all done already?! jesus.

There were only 2 comments when i tried. John i deserve something at the very least :P

INTVGene said:

June 18th, 10:12 am

Excellent news! Thanks Capcom!

dappaute said:

June 18th, 10:12 am

OmieeZF-LIVE said:

alexbhp said:

June 18th, 10:13 am

Does BCR unlock anything different on Bionic Commando (Bluray)?

SirTrigalot said:

June 18th, 10:13 am

Yes. Even though I beat it already, I sure don’t mind playing it again for them trophies and unlimited lives

Tr3p1dat10n said:

June 18th, 10:13 am

Man, the people on PS Blog are fast at those code redemptions!

Had you announced the patch when the game was $5… *sigh*

Mtmoney07 said:

June 18th, 10:13 am

those codes lasted every bit of 2 seconds….some of you guys have no life!

eksMAN said:

June 18th, 10:13 am

awesome!
and
if one lands on said magic number, how do we pm you?

xaos said:

June 18th, 10:13 am

That’s pretty spectacular of you guys; wow. I just hope it doesn’t encourage some of the more, uh, abrasive folks to assume that their tactics are always the way to go ;)
