  • Capcom Won't Be Creating New Game Properties With Western Developers

    Capcom isn't going to stop working with Western game developers, but the era of Capcom tasking them with brand-new franchises is over, according to Capcom president Haruhiro Tsujimoto in an interview with the Financial Times. Blame the poor sales of both Bionic Commando and Dark Void. Read More?

  • Capcom To Keep New IP Development In Japan

    The poor critical and commercial performances of Capcom’s Bionic Commando and the recently released Dark Void have caused the publisher to reexamine how it handles development of new and existing properties. Capcom tells GamesIndustry.biz that while Bionic Commando "demonstrated the difficulty of outsourcing the development of new...

  • GRIN -- A History In Screen Shots

    Even though the last few games GRIN produced had trouble connecting with gamers and critics (though I'll hold out a candle for Bionic Commando, if only for its brilliant swinging mechanic), it's always sad when a developer shuts down. In memory, I've collected a screen shot from every game GRIN produced in its eight year history as a company...

  • Bionic Commando Developer GRIN Officially Shuts Down

    GRIN became one of this generation's most talked about developers after the spectacularly well-received Bionic Commando Rearmed, but the studio fell into a series of missteps in 2009, with Wanted: Weapons of Fate, Terminator Salvation and their big-budget reboot of Bionic Commando all failing to find an audience critically or commercially. Now,...

  • Developer Grin May Be Shutting Down

    There might not be much to smile about at Swedish developer Grin's corporate offices. Sources referenced by game blog Gamasutra say the company has seen significant layoffs, and may not be around much longer. Grin's Barcelona and Gothenburg offices have apparently already been shuttered, and its main office in Stockholm may be next. Grin was...

  • Sessler's Soapbox: Delays Are A Good Thing!

    By now you're all used to hearing that the game you can't wait to play has been delayed, and the release date is now 3-6 months after when your pre-order says it will be in your grubby little hands. Well last week's Comic Con saw a short list of big video games get the delay treatment, and that's not necessarily a bad thing! Take the time to...

    Normally, if a particular game manages to do solid enough business, its publisher is most likely willing to look past less than stellar reviews should the game fail to be as received as highly as anticipated. However, if a game fails to charm the critics and fails to sell well, then you have what the French call a “bad...

  • 'Bionic Commando' Lab Report 3: The Lab Doc Is STILL Clueless

    Bionic Commando issues another Lab Report weaving in a female sniper character, weapons and well-executed combat that I will probably never understand. (I swear I'm trying my best on the demo) Also, the lab doctor in these videos is still clueless to the bionic arm's sentience. Maybe he's just in denial for creating such an unforgiving...

    In the media deluge that comes in daily, it's a welcome respite to have an oddity of whimsy come our way in the form of this comedy spot for Capcom's Bionic Commando. Having a bionic arm obviously is a great asset within an action game, however, what if one were to translate that to an office setting... enjoy. Bionic Commando hits the 360 and...
