So we're going to whiplash from swinging around the city like a mix of assassin's creed syndicate and prototype while battling bad guys with a variety of web moves... doing missions, saving people, etc.

to...

walking around as parker, talking to his aunt and friends and probably taking pictures for the bugle?

...

I'm all for story but that sounds friggen boring..


When you make it sound like that, yeah f*** this game. But we're also missing transitional context between the sequences and length of this particular sequence as well as how it differentiates from other Parker sections. But yeah, if EVERY sequence is just this abrupt switch to a light hearted, humorous walking sim, then f*** this game.

Though I kinda doubt that since their goal is to make both Spider-man and Parker sections interesting to play. It's easy to make these early assumptions because of how little we do know about it, so I understand that. It'll be at E3, which might mean they have something new to share at least.

tbf, isnt scenarios like this happen when you read Spider-Man comics? I mean, the comics isnt just about Spidey fighting all the time is it? So with that, arent the devs trying to capture what people usually read about in the comics?


Exactly, everything I've been seeing so far is pretty much what I've always wanted from a Spider-man game, but I do understand the knee-jerk reactions and totally get how such sequences could become problematic without play testing them thoroughly and listening to feedback/criticism (which is hopefully what a studio as high profiled as Insomniac would be doing).

You guys know that this is an open world Spiderman game right? It sounds like we're getting Spiderman GTA, and somehow this is a bad thing?

It's only open world when you are spider-man, not Peter Parker and afaik, not Mary Jane. That's where people are losing it on, but again, we've only seen so little to go on.

I do know that after the main story is done, you have free reign to swing through the city and manipulate things like time of day, perhaps weather conditions.

I didn't know that and I'm not bothered by it either.

Youve always wanted a game where you plan a surprise party for Aunt May? Riding around the city as Peter on his bike? People have always been wanting to play as MJ?
My sig sucks

You aren't planning surprise parties for the majority of the game, be sensible here. And where is this Peter riding his bike gameplay clip? Would be interested to see it. But yeah, I've kinda wanted a more civilian perspective of seeing Spider-man in action and how that is handled, so giving MJ a more prominent character role I am definitely for.
