It's time to give licensed games more creative freedom

Insomniac’s Spider-Man is quickly becoming one of my favorite games of 2018 because it’s Insomniac’s Spider-Man. It’s not simply another game with Spider-Man’s face on it, nor is it just another superhero game;...

Spider-Man rolling on water is my kinda glitch

Sometimes we see real dumb stuff in games and keep it to ourselves. Not today! Aerial tricks in Spider-Man can look funny enough as is even when everything's working as intended (real talk: it was one of the first skill-tree upgrades I wen...

Review: Spider-Man

Spider-Man means a lot to me. I'm not going to go off on a tangent you've heard a million times about how Peter Parker is such an every man and easy to identify with: no, I'd rather share a personal story. Games and other forms of media are...

The new Spider-Man story trailer puts the super in superhero

There's a "gang of costumed nutjobs taking the city apart piece by piece." It's up to Spider-Man -- costumed but not a nutjob -- to save the day. It's a story that's as old as time, or at least as old as superhero comics. Still, Spider-Man...

Spider-man looks similar to Arkham Asylum and that's fine

Call me a cynic all you want, but I was not impressed with Spider-man on PS4. It just looks way too similar to games I can already play, namely the Arkham series. That is fine, though, as I'm sure most people will get a kick out of having a...
