Marvel's Spider-Man PS4 Discussion
edited April 2018 in General Chat
I can't take it anymore, those recent news about the new Spider-Man game are driving me insane and I want to talk about it. This is the thread where you can post anything related to Insomniac's Spider-Man and Spider-Man himself.

Sadly all the news is only through april and then we get radio silence up until release. Gonna go crazy waiting for it.
But they will reveal the final suit from the pre-order bonus on July. It was leaked that MCU Iron Spider is the second suit.
I'm excited to see what villains end up in the game. So far we have Mister Negative, Kingpin, Mayor Norman Osborn (possibly not yet Green Goblin) and Shocker all confirmed, along with Black Cat and Taskmaster in side missions. Apparently in Peter's apartment according to people who played the game there are references to past encounters with Vulture, Rhino, Kraven the Hunter and Scorpion, so it's possible they might also appear.
Other interesting stuff confirmed...
Anyhoo, I am super pumped for this game and hope it will mark the continuation of great Marvel games on consoles after Telltale's Guardians game, since we also have Square Enix's Avengers Project in the works...
Thanks for posting those details. I'm already convinced this is going to be the best Spider-Man game.
Yeah, the amount of love and detail Insomniac are putting into this game is incredible, and having played numerous games with Spidey before including PS1 Spider-Man ("I bet right now you're thinking... I wish I'd taken that giant act to Vegas instead!"), Spider-Man 2 ("My balloon!"), Ultimate Spider-Man ("Feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeedddddd!"), Web of Shadows, Shattered Dimensions and Amazing Spider-Man, this is definitely looking to be really well done.
Oh and I forgot to mention... there's a Prequel Prose Novel in development called Hostile Takeover, which will cover Peter's attempts to defeat Kingpin (which is part of the early game story) and will also feature Mary Jane, Shocker and the super heroine Echo.
And if you want to keep tabs on all the info Game Informer has mentioned so far, you can find it all here, including more info about the new suit, Peter and MJ's relationship in the game, side quests and more.
I bet we'll be seeing one final piece of Spidey in motion at E3.
Give us a good trailer with the true villain revealed, and then kaboom you're set for September. (The reason I think this is because the statue that comes with the Collector's edition has a part of it concealed "for spoiler reasons" and will be revealed sometime this summer. Safe to say it's probably the real big villain Insomniac hasn't mentioned yet, and will reveal sometime before Sep. 7.)
Dude you been keeping up with all that reddit news eh?
Good job transcribing all that.
I haven't played a Spider-Man game since the game adaptation of Spider-Man 2. This game definitely has my interest and am looking forward to it.
EDIT: Oh my God there's an Honest Game Trailer for it, oh the nostalgia.
Best thing about it was webs actually attached to buildings instead of magically floating mid air like the amazing spiderman games ugh.
I'm not going to let a spoderman thread go on without adding these gems:
"He's saying: You're safe now, but in Spider-Man 4 I'll shoot you with a pistol." Classic line.
The James Franco disappearing act made me lose it.
That is totally my headcanon of the movie now.
"Ooh James just pullin' the old pranks on Peter!! He's under the table, that sly magician!"
NVM, forget what I said.
Can't believe I missed this game. I played Ultimate Spider-Man and Spider-Man Web of Shadows only, but both games did something better than Spider-Man 2. Still wish my PS2 was alive.
Shattered Dimensions is a fav of mine as it made each of the four Spider-Men - Amazing, Ultimate, Noir and 2099- stand out and be unique, plus the villains were great. Web of Shadows did a great job too creating a Symbiote infested New York.
I'm hoping that if they make a sequel to Spider-Man PS4, it should be like a remake of the Web of Shadows, have Venom as the main villain, infest New York with his symbiotes and add symbiote bosses who didn't wear the suit before like Doc Ock, Green Goblin, Mysterio, The Lizard etc.
Funny enough when I was thinking about Telltale doing a Spidey game I had this idea that you could have two possible branching story lines (like Vigilante/Villain Joker in Telltale's Batman) where either Venom or Doctor Octopus becomes a villain alongside Green Goblin whilst the other becomes a hero instead. The Venom one was essentially a re-imagining of Web of Shadows with Peter and Otto forming a 'Superior Six' team with Shocker, Vulture, Morbius/Lizard and a female ally of yours (MJ Watson/Gwen Stacy/Cindy Moon/Alice Octavius) who had gained Spider abilities themselves as Scarlet Spider/Spider Woman/Silk/Spinneret.. in order to battle a symbiote infestation created by a vengeful Venom and Norman Osborn.
Here is the new update about Spider-Man PS4 on GameInformer. Talking about Easter Eggs and References.
I heard that this game might be setting up a Marvel Gaming Universe which in my opinion would be awesome!!
Eh I'd rather they didn't have interconnected Marvel games. It sort of limits creativity if they all need to stick to a canon of whats previously happened.
A Marvel gaming universe would be awesome in my opinion too! Its pretty much already set up because Insomniac has revealed that they are going to include The Avengers Tower, The Sanctum Sanctorum and The Wakandan Embassy!
I'm pretty stoked about this game. I love Spider-Man so damn much. I saw Shocker in one of the teasers! Brings back memories of a classic Spider-Man game I played as a kid. I think it was called Spider-Man 2? Not the adaptation of the movie. It had the likes of Sandman, Hammerhead and Shocker, with Electro as the main villain. Anyone familiar with the game I'm talking about?
You're thinking of Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro from 2001, which was the PS1 sequel to 1999's Spider-Man and based on the 90's animated series.
Interesting fact: the game's final level with the final fight against a souped up Electro had to be massively changed since Spidey was going to fight Electro on top of the World Trade Center's two buildings, but of course, September 11th happened and this had to be changed, so they quickly modified the design and created a bridge between the two buildings so it wouldn't look the same. Despite this it created a bit of a plot hole in the story since Electro mentions 'Top of the world, ma!' after he escapes the museum, which was supposed to be a big clue where he is going to Spider-Man. Peter mentions he knows where Max is headed, but the actual modified location is never told to players.
Around the same time of course an entire plot line for the original 2002 Spider-Man movie by Sam Rami involving Shocker had to be removed because the villains were supposed to end up webbed in a helicopter between the two buildings, which was featured in the film's first teaser the year before release and prior to Sept 11th. Shocker was retained in the game based on the first movie however on PS2, wearing a more traditional garb than he appears to wear in the actual original cut of the film.
This is something that makes me facepalm all the time. People blame video games for reminding them bad experiences from real life when it's not even their fault and they are still doing this bullshit to games like The Last of Us 2 and Detroit Become Human.
Yeah, well to be fair I think there's a difference between dealing with delicate issues, which is something numerous games have done to varied effects over the years and where the general public latch onto often as a pet peeve (despite the fact movies and television do the same thing, it being interactive bugs some people)... and the aftermath of a personal and upsetting tragedy like 9/11.
The context in the case of that game made sense at the time to me, similar to how MGS2 had to remove the Two Towers from the skyline of NYC, which let's remember includes a sequence where the Arsenal Gear crashes into the city and wrecks dozens of buildings. Even a year on from the attack Konami ended up editing the sequence significantly for fear of an upset.
There was also I remember talk about a game on PS2 in about 2003/4 where you would try and survive various real disasters with the Titanic, the Mexico City Earthquake in 1985, Hurricane Andrew in 1998 and what ended up being the big controversy, 9/11. The media I remember went majorly up against that studio, even though there was only artwork of the game's premise made at the time and just one artwork of the ruins with firefighters. I remember having mixed feelings about it since you weren't playing as the terrorists, just survivors, and I liked the premise of seeing how you would survive stuff like the Titanic, but the same time it was still close to home for a lot of people. I think if that game had been announced now and they promised to be tasteful about it, it would have been more accepted.
I think it's good to have conversations about these things in games, just as people have tried to do since the days of the original Mortal Kombat and Night Trap (which STILL many assume is a 'murder teen girls' simulator even though it was actually about saving them).
EDIT: I think this is the game I was talking about, Survivor? It was in development at the right time.
MCU Iron Spider HYPE!!
I knew they were supposed to announce it in Avengers Infinity War release date.
Nice! I know we knew it was coming but it's great to see it in the game as an option. Curious to see if it has the ability to use the extendable arms as the comic version has.
Also hoping we get more movie suits, especially the Maguire costume and the Homecoming Holland costume.
We already got it.
If you mean the normal one from Tony Stark, I'm sure there is a possibility.
Oh yay! Saw a different trailer so I didn't realize it was different, nice to see the Homemade costume from Homecoming confirmed too. But I did mean the main Homecoming suit. Also hoping there will be plenty of cool comic based Spider-Man suits in the game besides the logical ones like Scarlet Spider and the black suit.
What are your most hoped for costumes, by the way? Here's some of mine...
Assuming we could maybe have some female Spider characters sneak in, any of these...
Lady Spider/May Reilly
Silk/Spider Woman/Spider Gwen
And the one we probably won't get cause it's a game for younger audiences...
TBH, I never seen any of those costumes before except Gwen's but I'm guessing that the last one is from Marvel Zombies, right?
That's right. India, UK and 1602 were all part of the Spider Verse event and come from alternate realities, as is May's Lady Spider (she's a female Peter from a Steampunk universe). Silk/Cindy Moon is a recent character addition who actually got bitten by the same spider as Peter, though she got slightly different powers to him. And Jessica Drew as Spider Woman was part of a HYDRA experiment and has quite different powers to Peter, so she's less likely
I also would love it if we could get the Spider Family of the Renew Your Vows universe with Spinneret and Spiderling, but that's likely a long shot.
The Amazing Bag Man?
I've always loved the multiple costumes in Spider-Man games. The Black Suit has always been a favorite of mine. Even as a kid when I unlocked it in a game and didn't know the story of Venom and the Symbiote. I just loved the way it looked.
I love the Homemade suit! It's just got so much personality and you can say "It looks like Peter Parker made that" something a High School student made.
Coolest Spider-Man costume.
10/10 best costume ever.
Here are the final details of this month about Spider-Man PS4 Game Informer gave us from their recent Q&A:
Biggest gripe about this game...continues the tradition of swinging on webs that do not attach to anything.
