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.
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 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!
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!Read the rest of this entry
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!
