A Whole Buncha Playstation 5 News and Trailers!

Sony held a big Playstation 5 event yesterday and revealed all sorts of information. First up, the actual console will be released in mid-November. The main console will be $500, while a version that ditches the disc drive and is digital only will be $400. Either way, I’m not buying a console at launch, so I’m not worried.

Beyond that news, we got a ton of new video game trailers and peeks!

The biggest news is that the Hogwarts Legacy game has finally been revealed! There was a short, blurry video leaked a couple years ago that alerted people to the game, but now we’ve got a full trailer! With gameplay!

Granted, JK Rowling is a pretty rotten person these days for her anti-trans opinions. She’s bad news. So this will be one of those situations where we have to decide for ourselves how willing we are to separate a work from the author. I don’t think Rowling had anything to do with this game, but she’s definitely going to make royalties off the license. So you’ll have to decide for yourselves.

Personally, I’m probably in. An epic RPG where you create your own wizard and send them through Hogwarts? All this needs to be is Bully from Rockstar set in the Wizarding World and it’ll be a masterpiece.

Next up, how about a gameplay trailer for the Spider-Man: Miles Morales game?!

Looks like an excellent amount of more Spidey gameplay to me! I think they could have found a better villain than the Tinkerer, but who am I to judge? This one should be really fun.

Want to know what’s also fun? Apparently both Hogwarts Legacy and Miles Morales will be available on the PS4, which I currently own. I won’t even need to buy a PS5!

Next up is a teaser for God of War: Ragnarok. The first reboot God of War game was a masterpiece, so I’m sure this sequel will be just as amazing, if not moreso.

Strange that they’re already going with Ragnarok for the second game. What’ll they call the third?

Lastly we have Final Fantasy 16! How exciting. It’s hard to even remember that the Final Fantasy series is still ongoing. I enjoyed FF15, so surely 16 will be fun!

Looks fun, at least. The graphics definitely look amazing. Might I need a PS5 for this one?

Anyway, that’s all the games that were revealed/teased yesterday that I care about! Some are coming to PS4 and that will be good enough for me. I’ll get a PS5 eventually. All of these games have me excited!

6 Things I Want to See in Spider-Man: Miles Morales

Last week, we got the news that Insomniac has made a new Spider-Man video game to star Miles Morales, due out at launch alongside the Playstation 5 later this year. Their Spider-Man game from 2018 was a masterpiece of web-swinging action, so anything they do with any web-slinger is good news! And, obviously, I have requests!

Behold, Playstation 5 graphics!

There has been some back-and-forth since the announcement of Spider-Man: Miles Morales as to what the game is, exactly. Some people have said it’s going to just be a remastered and enhanced version of the 2018 game with some new Miles content. Some people have said it’s a stand alone game that makes use of the previous game’s architecture, while not being a full-on sequel. And in the end, we don’t yet fully know who to believe.

But that’s not going to stop me from throwing off my list of things I’d like to see show up in Spider-Man: Miles Morales!

Holy Cow, It’s Our First Look at the Next Spider-Man Game!

The Sony Playstation 5 is apparently right around the corner and a sequel to that amazing Spider-Man game is going to be one of the launch titles! And it’s going to star Miles Morales! And there’s a teaser trailer right now!

Great! Awesome! Can’t wait! Granted, I’m probably not going to buy a PS5 at launch, but this is so cool! The first Spider-Man game was a masterpiece of greatness, and I can only imagine the sequel will be even better and bigger and cooler! And having Miles as the main character offers up so much potential! New powers, new struggles, new supporting characters, new villains and hopefully a grand new story just as awesome and impactful as the last one.

And all of this is supposed to come out by the end of the year! Fancy that!

6 Things I Want to See in the Into the Spider-Verse Sequel

It was excitingly inevitable that we would get a sequel to the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I really do think the animated feature is my favorite of all the many Spider-Man movies. It was just a brilliant use of the character, exploring the meaning of being a hero with verve, wit, flashy animation and pretty much perfect everything.

Only two years away!

So what can we expect to see in a sequel to something so expansive and creative as Into the Spider-Verse? There are some obvious answers, especially considering that tease at the end of the movie. And obviously we’ll probably see all of the main characters back for another go around. But surely with the Spider-Verse foundation built, we’re going to go bigger and wilder when the movie arrives in 2022.

Join me after the jump for some ideas and characters I’d like to see in the big, hopefully bombastic sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse!

A Tale of Two Prowlers

A problem eight years in the making has finally arrived: Marvel now has two competing, nearly identical, and yet completely unrelated Prowlers kicking around New York City. It’s a weird problem, and I think Marvel has come up with a simple fix. Being one of the internet’s foremost Prowler fans, I felt compelled to point this out to everybody.

Marvel has offered various workarounds for awhile, but based on the current storyline in Miles Morales: Spider-Man, they’re apparently just going to barrel on through.

Miles’ uncle, Aaron Davis, is once again calling himself the Prowler.

Even though the original Prowler, Hobie Brown, is still around and working with Spider-Man.

Apparently that purple and green look is too good to pass up! These two images came from two different comics released the exact same day back in August. It was the most Prowler-heavy week in comics in years.

This is what happens when you crash universes together. It’s not a safe practice for anybody.

So how did we get here and where do we go from here? I’m glad you asked! Join me after the jump for A Tale of Two Prowlers.
