The video is recorded from the demo that is playable on the show floor at E3 2018 in Los Angeles, and it looks absolutely unbelievable. We also get a look at how Spider-Man will fight the many goons he'll encounter. My one gripe with the combat is that it nearly felt too frenetic at times - there were moments where Spidey felt too slippery for my liking, and also instances when the game's camera seemed to have a mind of its own. The game certainly appears to be very heavy on storytelling, which is fantastic. But Spider-Man 2 fixed that, and it turned swinging into something that was simultaneously skill-based and effortless. Just as he's ready to focus on life as Peter, a new villain threatens New York City.
Marvel and Insomniac Games have teamed up to create a brand-new and authentic Spider-Man story. We're betting either Green Goblin or Miles Morales. On top of that, the gameplay trailer also introduces the five villains that will be in the game - and one mysterious one.
Thiem advances to first final, to face Nadal
If you were laying odds at the beginning of the tournament, Thiem was nowhere near the seventh favorite (he's seeded No. 7). And on the penultimate point of the semifinal, after being run ragged, the 2009 US Open victor could only offer up a smile.
Spider-Man will be released on September 7. It says a lot that the combat left us wanting to experience more of it, even though these were basic enemy encounters. And getting that final-release sheen combined with the swinging, the combat, and the trademark quips made me realize that I've wanted this game for almost a decade and a half - and it's absurd that we've had to wait so long for it.
Calling a first-party PlayStation game gorgeous is pretty much redundant at this point, but Spider-Man really is a looker. Let's get to speculating.
