New Bionic Commando trailer whips it, whips it good

In the immortal words of Devo, when a problem comes along, you must whip it. The latest trailer from Capcom's upcoming Bionic Commando remake answers the question we've all been wondering since the last footage showed us we could swing: will we be able to toss bad guys? Or toss massive objects at bad guys? Or toss bad guys at other bad guys? Or brush our teeth with a bionic arm? Answers: yes, yes, yes, and why would you ask such a random question?

What we're not sure from the trailer, however, is how easy or difficult it is to initiate smash and throw action, or if we'll even want to shoot guns at all, given our much superior projectiles. Let's hope Capcom finds a way to make other forms of combat entertaining and meaningful without designing a level where we can't smash anything, forcing us to trudge through corridors without swinging around like a manly Spider-Man.
