This episode: Brett and Chris are joined by Capcom reps Ray Jimenez and Mike Lunn, who were nice enough to show off some never-before-seen areas of Bionic Commando Rearmed 2. Brett and Mike engage in two-player co-op and talk about features new to Rearmed 2, all while Simon Viklund's sure-to-be-amazing soundtrack pumps underneath.
Rearmed 2 hits PSN on 2/1, and XBLA on 2/2. I can't wait to get crackin' on the finished game; the first Rearmed was probably my favorite game of 2008 (for very specific reasons almost no one else can relate to) so a direct sequel, with extra abilities and another kickass soundtrack, is more than enough to get me going. Should your fandom be understanably less than "total," there's still a strong, gorgeous 2D experience to be had. And thanks to the way the bionic arm both limits and enhances your mobility, you're getting gameplay unique to this series. Look for more on Feb 1!
