Just in case you’re into awesome and radical video game soundtracks, the Bionic Commando Rearmed Soundtrack is up for sale on iTunes. I like “Power Plant”, the song sounds a lot more fun then I imagine a power plant to be. This game is going to be fucking awesome.
Bionic Commando: Rearmed looks sweet as hell. Seriously, I don’t understand why there aren’t more 2D side scrolling games released on the latest consoles.

I wonder if it will have all of the future Nazi stuff included. It is scheduled to be released in Spring of 2008. Here’s the whole press release: Continue reading Bionic Commando Rearmed
