Bionic Commando Swings Back

Bionic Commando Hold on a minute!  Capcom is bringing back the beloved Bionic Commando franchise and nobody told me?!  Despite the snub I'm glad to see the bionic arm making a comeback for the Sony PlayStation 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, and PC.  GameSpot has the exclusive news and media this time around.

Simply called Bionic Commando, the new game will bring back the original game's hook (pun intended), with players able to use the main character's bionic grappling arm not only to navigate levels but to take out enemies at close range, rappel down sheer surfaces, or toss objects (like cars) at enemies.

It's about time this franchise made a new appearance, and although there are a ton of ways that the developers could screw this one up, I'm going to try and be optimistic about it.  After all, there are also a ton of ways that the new Bionic Commando could go ridiculously right.
