Captain Commando!
John Crawley
img291.imageshack.us/img291/3847/clubbannerbl5.jpg

I had never heard of Captain Commando prior to 1998, or at least part of 1997. The first time I had heard of him was when I read a text file of the manual for the original Mega Man on some website, where he was thanking the customer for buying the game, then later on, I discovered that he had his own game, and that he was going to be in Marvel Vs. Capcom. I as getting interested in this character slowly, but one day, I found a ROM of the SNES version of his game, and I thought it was great, and I never got to play the arcade version until 2000. Captain Commando is one of Capcom's best characters, and he needs a comeback. He's just that awesome. Everything about him. And as crazy as this sounds, I actually think it'd make a great live action film, with Thomas Jane portraying him. Oh, and I made the pic above, so don't use it without asking. Smile

GOSSIP: One rumor going around is that one of Captain Commando's inspirations was the cult 1984 film "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across The 8th Dimension", but Capcom is yet to confirm whether or not this is true.

Still a very nice game which I've known for ages now...it's where Capcom got it's name from.

Yeah, great little game. It's on the PS2 Capcom Collection Vol 2. I think you may find though that Capcom comes from the original name of the company "Japan Capsule Computers" and not Captain Commando.

Yep, I was wrong...it probably should be the other way around...since Captain Commando was their original mascot he was therefore named Captain Commando???

I think you're right. The names must be connected somehow. The only reason I know is that I have been reading the book Apollo 13 and the guy in mission control who talks to the crew is called CAPCOM (CAPsule COMmunicator). That got me researching "our" Capcom.

Haha I love this game. This game is really stange and campy and I can see why it would have drawn inspiration from Buckaroo Banzai, which is a starnge campy film that I've loved since I was a kid. I've never heard that rumor before.

Back in the day, this was one of the many beat 'em ups a I played loads, and I love it to death still. It's not my fave but it still has a lot of charm, and plays great.

I think I suddenly have the urge to dig out a rom and play it... some multiplayer via kaillera if it works well enough would be good! Grin
