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.Read the rest of this entry
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.
Spider-Man 2, Wolverine and So Many More Video Games Coming!
Yesterday was apparently a big day for Sony and Playstation to announce a bunch of exciting new upcoming video games — to come out a couple years from now. So we’ve all got to survive this pandemic to play the likes of Spider-Man 2, Wolverine, God of War: Ragnarok and more! I’m going to do my best.
First up is Spider-Man 2, the sequel to that great Spider-Man game a couple years ago from Insomniac. The Miles Morales game was just as good, in my opinion, but a full-on sequel should be a lot of fun.
We’ve got Kraven and Venom as villains, and those guys are always a hoot. This game should be another instant success.
Next up, Insomniac is making a Wolverine video game! That one is a real surprise.
Wolverine games have a good track record. Say what you will about the movie, but the X-Men Origins: Wolverine game was a blast way back in the day. The fighting, the healing, the gameplay, it was all top notch. And with the Spider-Man games, it’s clear that Insomniac knows how to make a character move around a world. So Wolverine is in good hands.
God of War: Ragnarok got a nice, beefy trailer and it looks as good as expected.
The story seems to have moved forward in some great ways, and we’re actually going to party with the Norse god of war, so that’s neat. This should be another instant classic as well. Playstation really knocks them out of the park sometimes.
The upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy game got a new story trailer and it still looks…iffy.
Fortunately, this game comes out in October, so we’ll actually get to see whether or not this one is any good in a short time. Which is good, because I need a new video game. I’ve been getting by on scraps and old games for like a month now. This game could be fun…or it could be a big, swirling mess.
Lastly, they announced a remake for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
This is going to be remade from the ground up, they say, completely from scratch. They’re gonna redo the entire game with modern graphics and play style. This is fantastic, considering I never played the original Knights of the Old Republic. I tried it once, years after it came out, but it had lost its luster by then and I didn’t get very far into the game. I did play the sequel a couple of times, and that was great! So I’m very excited to try the main game for reals with modern everything.
And that’s about it for game trailers. I think there were more, but these are the ones I’m most interested in. Most of them are years away, but thankfully, I can be pretty patient. Plus it gives me more time to buy that Playstation 5.
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!
Spider-Man 2 Is the Best Spider-Man Video Game of All Time
Everybody gets around to ranking the Spider-Man video games at some point or anything, but there’s rarely any point. Spider-Man 2 is the best Spider-Man video game of all time. Nothing has ever come close, and I fear nothing ever will.
The web-slinging mechanic in Spider-Man 2 was revolutionary. If you’ve never played it, you must. Though I imagine it’s got to be hard to track down a game based on a more than 10-year-old movie.
Honest Trailers doesn’t get too up in Spider-Man 2’s grill, and that’s OK. As long as they are fully aware that it’s the best Spider-Man game ever. I do not have a lot of faith in the new, upcoming Spidey game…but since it’s a Playstation exclusive, I’ll probably never be able to play it anyway.
