Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 jumping to PSN & XBLA next year

Gyroscopic sequel coming in 2011

The original in all its 8-bit glory

The original in all its 8-bit glory

In 2008, Capcom released an 2D iteration of one of its most beloved series, bringing back the classic gameplay of Bionic Commando but upgrading the game with HD visuals. This game was seen as many as the appetizer to the 2009 3D re-imagining of the series. Only one of the two games has been confirmed for a sequel, and it's not the big-budget blockbuster. In 2011, Capcom will be bringing Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 to the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade.

The game will include much of the same grapple-n-gun gameplay of the NES original and 2008 update, but will add a key element that many fans have been pining for since the beginning--the ability to jump. While seemingly minor as far as new features go, as players of the previous games will attest to, the new move has the ability to drastically change how Bionic Commando should play. Hopefully that change is for the better.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
