Bionic Commando: 8-Bit Nazi Fightin' Action

If you’re a fan of retrogames, you probably know that the NES game Bionic Commando underwent a number of changes to make it more ‘appropriate’ to American audiences. In fact, Bionic Commando originally had a very different name overseas.

Ever wondered why the Badds looked like stormtroopers or why the final boss was a shirtless, Lazarus Pit-spawned Hitler? Uh… because the game was freakin’ called TOP SECRET: The Return of Hitler!
