6 Characters I Want to See in the Spider-Man 2 Video Game

This is a great time to be a Spider-Man fan. Not only does the new film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse come out this week, but last week we got our first big look at the upcoming Spider-Man 2 video game for the Playstation 5. I’m going to the first showing of the movie this week, and you best believe I’ll be picking up that game day one! Everything’s coming up Spider-Man!

Next week, I’ll do a review of Across the Spider-Verse here in this List of Six space. So this week, I’ve decided to whip together a quick list for the Spider-Man 2 video game. Who do I want to see appear in the game? What cameos and character appearances? We already know that Kraven the Hunter and Venom will be the major villains, but what about minor villains? What about some superhero allies? Or some civilian friends?

Join me after the jump for a couple characters I hope to see in this surely awesome video game.

Symbiote Action in New Spider-Man 2 Video Game!

Spider-Man is the star of a lot of great video games. And the current streak is 2 for 2, baby! Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales were bangers. They were perfect. So you best believe I’m very excited for the new game. And we got our first real, full look at some story elements and gameplay in a video yesterday. And now I’m sharing that with you all!

Looks great to me! They do a lot of great things with Kraven in the opening cinematic. I’m a little surprised that he’s going to have enough goons at his disposal to populate an entire video game’s worth of henchmen. But we’ll see! I love the switching between Peter and Miles. It’s probably going to be a lot similar to Grand Theft Auto 5. I love the look of the black symbiote suit. I love the subtle ways it’s making Peter angrier — or not so subtle, it’s pretty obvious.

Game looks great. Can’t wait. But we gotta, until the fall.


A Fun New Tenacious D Music Video

I spent the entirety of my vacation playing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, so I am big into video games at the moment. I barely scratched the surface of what that game has to offer, so I’ll be playing it for a long time to come. Can’t wait! And in honor of video games, Tenacious D put out this fun new, animated music video.

It’s Monday, let’s rock out with Tenacious D. The animation is so adorable and well done! And the song is a hoot. So I would say a good time was had by all.


The Mortal Kombat Storyline is Madness

There’s a new Mortal Kombat video game coming out in September and it looks wild. It’s going to be called Mortal Kombat 1, instead of Mortal Kombat 12. The reason for that is because, once again, the universe is starting over from scratch. Because the last game ended with the universe being destroyed and Liu Kang rising to become some sort of cosmic god. It was wild.

And by the nature of these games, they just gotta continue the story.

I think this is just always going to happen. The universe will get reset and they’ll need to start again from the very beginning. Either that, or they need to stop jumping into the future, where classic characters get old and have children. All we want are classic characters, right?

The top of my concerns, of course, is whether or not Smoke is in the game. He’s one of my all-time favorite video game characters, and he’s the only one that matters. I haven’t had a playable Smoke since Mortal Kombat 9. I doubt he’ll be in a game that revives the story at the very beginning, but the website for this new game said there will be something called Kameos, which are support characters who can be called upon in a fight. Maybe Smoke will be one of those? That could be fun.

Mortal Kombat 1 comes out on Sept. 19.


6 Franchises for Which I Want a Big, Open World Video Game

I’m on vacation this week, doing a whole lot of relaxing at home and not working. I timed my vacation with the release of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and you best believe I am enjoying my time in this big, open Hyrule of a world. I love open world video games like Breath of the Wild and Tears of the Kingdom. Last year we got Sonic Frontiers, this year we had Hogwarts Legacy and will be getting another Spider-Man game, with the big, open Manhattan. More franchises should have games like these.

This reminds me that I gotta get back to playing Zelda

All my favorite games are big open world games. World of Warcraft, the Grand Theft Auto series, the really good Spider-Man games, Red Dead Redemption and its sequel, Witcher 3, the Assassin’s Creed games; the list goes on and on. I love a big, open map with a bunch of stuff to do, both big and small. I love being able to dress up my character in clothing and armor I’ve scoured the map to find. I love having the freedom to do side activities, like hunting in RDR2.

So with all that being sad, and to make this list as easy as possible on my chill vacation, what are some franchise I’d like to see given the big, open world video game treatment. If they can remake the entirety of Hogwarts castle in a video game, they can surely make these dreams of mine come true.
