How About Another Look at Cyberpunk 2077?

We’re still three weeks away from the (latest) release date for Cyberpunk 2077 and I am still very excited about this game. The delays have not dampened the hype for what could be the game of the year…not that it’s had much stiff competition. Still, to ease the wait, CD Projekt Red put out another trailer!

And the game still looks great! It still looks incredibly immersive! A couple different gaming websites have put out articles this week about getting some solid playtime in demo copies, and the game sounds like everything I hope it’s going to be.

So now it’s just a matter of sitting backing and waiting for Dec. 10. Thankfully, I’m on vacation that week, so I imagine I will lose several days to the game!

6 Miles Morales Versions of Classic Spider-Man Villains

I am very much enjoying the new Spider-Man: Miles Morales video game! It’s an extension of the first Spider-Man game on Playstation 4, which itself was a masterpiece. This new game is a Miles Morales-flavored version of that first game, which is pretty fun!

Did you know that there are also a lot of Miles Morales-flavored versions of classic Spider-Man villains?

They be Spidey-ing

Miles has been with us since 2011 and he’s easily established himself as a quality Spider-Man in his own right. He’s got his own rogue’s gallery of villains, but one interesting thing about Miles is that he’s started to build up a set of villains who are alternate versions of classic Spider-Man villains. I think it’s neat! And a fun way to celebrate the release of the new game!

So join me after the jump for six classic Spider-Man villains who have been re-imagined in their fight against Miles Morales. Also, expect FULL SPOILERS for the new Spider-Man: Miles Morales video game.

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…

6 Beans I Want to See in Fall Guys

Fall Guys: Ultimate Showdown recently came out with Season 2 and it’s fine. Enjoyable. I still like playing Fall Guys, especially since I haven’t tried Among Us yet. Along with Season 2, Fall Guys also revealed their most famous cross promotion bean skin: Sonic the Hedgehog!

Having to go fast is an expectation

Obviously this is everything Fall Guys should be doing. Make deals, cross promote, feature a ton of costume characters from other games. It’s fun playing as ducks and wolves, sure, but we all want easily merchandisable, very recognizable pop culture characters. Sonic is the latest addition, and we’ve also had characters from Team Fortress 2 and Portal. But I want more!

I want to spend my crowns on these six bean costumes!

Honestly, the Avengers Video Game Wasn’t For Me

It was recently announced that the next big update for the Avengers video game — the one bringing Kate Bishop to the game, the first new character — has been pushed off indefinitely. The developers think their game will have the legs to survive…but will it really? Honestly?

The Avengers video game was, ultimately, not for me. The game turned out to be exactly what I thought it was going to be, and it just didn’t work for me. I played a friend’s copy through the campaign, and that was fun enough. And I could probably see myself losing myself to the grind just to get fancier costumes. But nah. I set my controller down and uninstalled the game from my PC. And with Kate Bishop pushed off, there’s no reason going back anytime soon.

The Fandom Games guys are right on the dang money!
