The Amazing Spider-Man 2 doesn't look half bad

It's hard to look at what Rocksteady has done with Batman and not want the same treatment for Spider-Man. For better or worse, long-time developer Beenox has once again taken charge, this time for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, a...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game looks the same as the first, only shinier

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game is set to drop in April to coincide with the second film, and this new footage gives us a look at what to expect -- basically, more of the same. Honestly, that's not a terrible thing in my mind ...

Here's Max to cap off the week of videogame news. He claims his laptop battery is almost out of juice but I think he just wanted to get the weekend started early. I'd have done the same thing.

The new Thief and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, two games that have experienced their fair share of criticism from fans of those properties, got the preview treatment. We also saw trailers for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, The Elder Scrolls Online's packed voice cast, and Jazzpunk. That last one will rank among the year's best game trailers, mark my words. Whoa.

More than anything, I'm pleased to hear that Max agrees with me about the stupidity of the name "The Golf Club." Take that, Steven! And bring your puns with you.

Become the ultimate hunter in The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Review: The Amazing Spider-Man  photo
Review: The Amazing Spider-Man
by Jim Sterling

When there's a new movie on the horizon, Activision's usually on call to bring us the obligatory videogame tie-in. As is the creed of the obligatory videogame tie-in, the product is rushed, slapdash, visually unimpressive, and interactively vapid. It is the irrefutable law of such licensed products. It is a law you do not break. 

Unless you're The Amazing Spider-Man which, despite everything going against it, and in the face of gameplay systems ripped wholesale from a rival licensed game, actually manages to be quite good.

Bruce Campbell gets extreme in The Amazing Spider-Man

Will The Amazing Spider-Man be a good videogame? Well, it's a licensed game made to coincide with an upcoming blockbuster, and Beenox is making it. Draw your own conclusions.  Good or bad, however, everybody's favorite ...

NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE

Like all superhero games, The Amazing Spider-Man will feature multiple unlockable costumes. HeroHQ got a peek at one of the outfits called the "Spider-Morphosis," and it's horrifying. The man-spider transformation is based from issue #437 of The Amazing Spider-Man comic, and all I have to say about that is NOPE!

The key villains of The Amazing Spider-Man

So, I'm not liking what I've seen of The Amazing Spider-Man film. On the other hand, the game appears to be coming along perfectly. With a combat system inspired by the Rocksteady Batman games, an open-world setup similar to ...
