Spider-Man is Hopefully a Dream Come True

With Sony’s E3 press conference over, there are many games to be excited for and talked about. But, the title that stood out to me personally is the Spider-Man game developed by Insomniac exclusively for the PlayStation 4. Spider-Man is my favorite character in all mediums, not only comics. And I have been hoping to get the ultimate game about him for a long time now.

The closest we got to this was the 2004 release of Spider-Man 2 on consoles. But, it has been 13 years since then and we have yet to receive a game that comes close to that. Enter Insomniac, a high-caliber developer that is known for creating Ratchet and Clank, Resistance and most recently Sunset Overdrive. They are a developer who knows how to make games well and they are a perfect fit for a Spider-Man title.

Sony closed their presser with extensive new game-play footage from the upcoming title and it looks incredible. The thing that stood out to me about it initially is how cinematic the combat is and how fluid Peter Parker swings around the buildings while beating up bad guys. It also seemed to have some stealth elements in it which isn’t done enough in the Spider-Man games.

The new game-play footage lasted around 10 minutes and showed off a variety of elements to the game. The villain in the trailer is Mr. Negative, which he may or may not be the main antagonist in the game. It shows footage of Spider-Man chasing this villain down as he flies away in a helicopter through a busy New York City. This section showed off the scale of the game and real Spider-Man moments that we have seen and loved from the comics and recent films.

The best part about this game for me is that it isn’t just another video game for a movie. It actually has nothing to do with the film and Insomniac is using their creativeness to craft their own superhero game. Not much is known about the release date but the trailer does say 2018 at the end and teases newcomer Miles Morales for the game.

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is on the horizon, with our review already available. There’s just one week left until the game’s official release on February 29th, exclusively on PS5. This highly anticipated sequel to Remake, based on one of the most beloved video game stories, is best experienced without any spoilers, according to creative director Tetsuya Nomura.

On Twitter, Nomura made a final request for players and content creators to avoid spoiling the game for others, especially on social media and video-sharing platforms, where spoilers can spread rapidly. Naturally, there’s a specific moment that everyone is eagerly anticipating to see how it will compare to the 1997 original, and it’s bound to be quite chaotic on launch day. Nevertheless, Nomura still holds onto a glimmer of hope for humanity and has made a seemingly impossible request for content creators to exercise a degree of restraint.

It’s important to remember to include spoiler warnings when sharing content related to the game’s story on social media and video-sharing sites to avoid spoiling the experience for others. I would greatly appreciate it if you could avoid using scenes from important parts of the story in your video thumbnails.

Nomura points out that the developers intentionally did not limit the recording and sharing features of the PS5 for any aspect of the game. They believe players should have the freedom to share and discuss their favorite gameplay moments. It remains to be seen if that trust was justified.

Do you think players and content creators will follow Nomura’s request and minimize spoilers? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Xbox may want to become more acquainted with the Platinum Trophies on PS5 and PS4

Obsidian’s first Xbox game, Pentiment, a historical adventure, is now available on the PS5 and PS4. From what we’ve seen, this port of a highly popular game seems to be solid, and we aim to provide you with a review soon. Meanwhile, one aspect caught our attention regarding the conversion that Microsoft may need to address in the future.

Pentiment’s list of Trophies perfectly mirrors its Xbox Achievements, featuring identical descriptions, titles, and icons. There is a slight variation between the two versions: PlayStation offers 42 trophies to unlock, whereas Xbox provides 41 achievements to earn. The distinction lies in the Platinum Trophy, which is awarded once you have collected all the other trinkets in the set.

Since it’s not included in the original game, the developer has not named the trophy, so it appears as ‘PlatinumTrophy’ in the list. This has already generated amusement among Trophy enthusiast communities. “They chose such a basic name for the Platinum Trophy and somehow still messed it up,” a fan expressed.

This issue is quite insignificant in the bigger picture and could likely be fixed with a quick update or patch. As Microsoft gains more experience with PlayStation development, we hope their command of the Trophy system will improve. After all, those platinums are difficult to earn and deserve a more memorable name.

Brock Lesnar and Vince McMahon have been excluded from the final roster of WWE 22K24

2K Sports unveiled the complete roster for the upcoming WWE 2K24, featuring more than 204 playable superstars, including 70 Legends who are no longer part of the main rosters, along with eight managers. However, fans were quick to point out the absence of some notable names from the list: 7-time WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and former WWE chairman and CEO Vince McMahon. Lesnar was previously excluded from the Forty Years of WrestleMania edition.

Following accusations of sex trafficking against McMahon by a former WWE employee, a report from the Wall Street Journal brought the issue to light. Although Lesnar’s name was not directly mentioned in the proceedings, insiders informed the WSJ that he was the unidentified WWE champion in question. McMahon refuted the allegations but stepped down as WWE CEO the day following the federal lawsuit.

Nonetheless, Lesnar and McMahon will still be present in the game. GameSpot has reported that the Lesnar vs. Undertaker match from WrestleMania 30 may be included in Showcase mode. It is speculated that another match already confirmed for Showcase mode (Stone Cold vs. The Rock, WrestleMania 17) will probably include an appearance from McMahon as well.

WWE 2K24 will be available for purchase on March 8th for PS5 and PS4, or March 5th for those interested in the Deluxe or WrestleMania editions.
