The new Spider-Man video game is great. You should all buy a Playstation 4 so you can play it. Here’s an Honest Trailer to celebrate!
I have since beaten the game 100% and collected all of the trophies, which I’ve only ever done for one other game before. I have nothing left to do in Spider-Man but enjoy the web-swinging and fight some general crime. It’s maddening! I want me some DLC, but it’s a month away!
Somebody help me! Or maybe I’ll just start God of War finally.
I’m so glad I splurged on that Playstation 4 earlier this year, because the new Spider-Man video game is spectacular! I daresay it’s the perfect Spider-Man game, with a great story and super-fun gameplay. Barring some sort of 1:1 fully immersive VR experience, the new game from Insomniac is as good as a Spider-Man game can get…until the inevitable sequel!
Video Game Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!
The web-slinging is fun, the cityscape is expansive, the fighting is a blast, with a ton of moves and so many web attacks I lose track sometimes; and best of all, the story and the characters are purely perfect Spider-Manery! Spider-Man for the PS4 is an event! And I daresay a sequel is already in the works, which should improve upon everything for an even better game!
I, being the helpful, no-name blogger that I am, have cobbled together a list of things I would like to see in the sequel! And feel free to share your own hopes and dreams in the comments!
Warning: There will be FULL SPOILERS for the game, so tread carefully.
At long last, our first proper look at the upcoming Captain Marvel movie is here, and it looks pretty awesome! It’s more of a teaser trailer than anything else, but the characters are established and the special effects look slick!
This is a good teaser trailer, as far as I’m concerned. Captain Marvel the character looks great in action, and the special effects of her powers look awesome, and the young Nick Fury totally plays. Here’s hoping for the best!
Also, how weird must it be for the general public that Marvel Studios is making a movie about a character named “Captain Marvel”? Obviously, comic nerds like we know the character’s long history, but the average movie goer who just enjoys the movies? “Marvel” itself is a recognizable name brand at this point. Do they think she was named after the movie studio?
Captain Marvel comes out on March 8.
In-freaking-sane! That’s the only way to describe this week in comics! Apparently Marvel heard how light things had been the past two weeks, so they released eight comics on my read pile this week! And that’s not even counting the couple of DC Comics this week that I’m reading! Oy vey!
Thankfully, there were a ton of great comics this week, from Runaways to Squirrel Girl to Ms. Marvel to Domino! A real standout is the returned Iceman comic by Sina Grace, but I’m afraid the new issue of Fantastic Four is just a touch better, and Fantastic Four wins Comic Book of the Week!
But Iceman was still really good. I’m very excited to have that comic back! Though hopefully Marvel doesn’t drop so many of my favorite comics in the same week anymore.
Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #5, Catwoman #3, Domino #6, Fantastic Four #2, Iceman #1, Ms. Marvel #34, Runaways #13, Superman #3, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #36 and X-23 #4.
This Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors cartoon is moving forward, and I support anything that will give us an animated Squirrel Girl. Granted, I think they should just make Ryan North’s Unbeatable Squirrel Girl comic into a 1-1 adaptation, but that might just be me.
I’m mostly surprised at the continued use of Inferno, the Inhuman. How is that guy still a thing? Not only was he front and center on that failure to turn the Inhumans into the next big thing, but he’s got generic fire powers! Does Marvel really not have any worthwhile male teen superheroes? Isn’t Ghost Rider a teenager?
I dunno. Maybe watch, maybe don’t. We’ll see.
