New Spider-Man Game Arrives This Week

Considering everything else going on in the world these days, it seems a little underplayed that there’s a brand new Spider-Man video game coming out this week. Spider-Man: Miles Morales arrives on Playstation 4 on Thursday. I already have the day off from work.

I am excited about this game…and yet…not? And I’m not entirely sure why not. Based on the reviews I’ve seen, the PS4 version is going to still be good, even though the game is optimized for the PS5 — which also comes out this week, but I’m not about to buy. And the reviews also paint Miles Morales as an extension of the Spider-Man game from last year, which was a masterpiece in Spidey gaming.

I think it might just be the size of Miles Morales, the scope of it. From what I’ve read, it seems to be just a beefier DLC. It’s the same map and gameplay, albeit with some snow on the ground because it’s set in the winter. It’s the same game world, essentially, there’s just a new Spider-Man to control. And the new story is obviously shaped around Miles. And I like Miles! And I’m sure I’ll like this story.

I guess I’ve just got it in my head that this is more Spider-Man 1.5 than its own standalone awesomeness. But I’m still going to buy it ASAP and play the heck out of it!

While I continue to wait for Cyberpunk 2077…
