I'm glad we're finally back to webbing connecting to objects, but it seems to be a swing-or-can't-swing here mechanic. What was great about Spider-Man 2's web-swinging...10 years ago...was that if you were attached to a building to the right, it would really force your swing arc to veer right. It really felt like you were fighting a centripetal force (I think that's the right force) with every swing. In this game though, Spidey seems to automatically maintain a straight trajectory if he's swinging forward.

I hope not...that's not what I see in the video, though. He is pulling towards the anchor point, though admittedly not enough.

On the down side, he was able to go through that low tunnel by swinging, and it was way too low to contain such an arc - he should've had to web-zip through there (like I would have in Spider-Man 2).

To me it sort of looks like the webs are properly anchored but that they are way too elastic, so you get a much longer and straighter swing than you really should.

This looks better, but I think what the devs are forgetting about what made Spider-Man 2 so amazing is two things: chargable jump and the sprint button.

The sprint button, when used in the middle of a swing, gives you a huge boost of speed. It's totally unrealistic, but using that to gain a shit ton of momentum and then, combined with the charged jump, launching yourself super far horizontally (another thing the devs seem to not quite get, too much vertical momentum off a swing) all felt super great.

Also, the web zip should only pull you a little bit and not like all the way to a surface. It should be used for redirection and speed.

So I just pre-ordered it on PSN since I still had that 10$ on PSN that came with the spend 50 get 10 back. Pre-order comes with the electrifying Electro-proof suit.

Video Output: 720p

Whaaaat? I thought that the devs had officially said it was running 1080p and 30 FPS?

Ps4?

EDIT: Just checked the ps store. It could be a typo. No way that game should run at 720p even on Xbox One.

They mention 1080p Here For PS4 and Xbox One.

and he added that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions will offer 1080p resolution, a better draw distance and a smoother frame rate. (The screenshots in this article are from the PS4 version.)

The xbox one version of the amazing spider man 2 seems to have been cancelled.


The xbone version seems to have been pulled from the offical site and there is no longer and option to preorder it, the xbone cover is also no longer to be seen on the offical site.
Another member from germany reported that a major german retailer sent a mail to customers, saying that the publisher cancelled and pulled all the xbox one versions.





Well, there you have it. Good thing im a playstation user. :D

Interesting.

Looks like EB Games Australia have also now removed the release date for the Xbox One version (though the listing is still on their site).

All still due out May 7th

Wow, and I assume it might be cancelled in all regions? I wonder what's going on, no XB1 version but a 360 and even Wii U version still coming.

If this is all true, then maybe they just had a really difficult time porting the Xbone version and buried it.

What reason could they possibly have to cancel the XBONE version? Even if they couldn't get it to perform as well as the PS4 version, you'd think they'd just release what they have anyway and try to patch it later (as that's what most developers seem to be doing nowadays).

This is only a delay right?
Because I am loss for words too...
Just release the game at 720/30 for X1 if they couldn't keep it at 1080.
Get some of those development cost back at least.

You don't cancel/delay a game weeks before release because you can "only" get 720/30. If this is because of technical problems, it had to be way worse than that.

I saw this movie yesterday, why the hell do I have to wait 2 more weeks for the game?

If the movie doesn't have a worldwide simultaneous release, why the hell does the game need one?

Just pre-ordered the PC ver. Hope it'll be good, because I don't want to give up Doom beta for a shitty game. Tight on money, brah.

Happy to see it will be native 1080p and 13 costumes is a bunch, but it pisses me off that I have to pre-order from gamestop to get another 4 and will always be missing 2 of them lol

This is the future and its fucking stupid.
I bought Gears of War 2 twice to have the Amazon Lancer and Best Buy RC Car.

the preorder bonuses will most certainly be released as normal DLC in the future, but I agree, it's still really dumb

I'm just happy that Steam is getting the Gamestop pack, since I really wanted the black suit and I didn't want to wait a month

I don't understand movie tie in games at all. Has there been an actual movie tie in game that was good that launched around the movie? Goldeneye was over a year after the movie was out so was Rickdick too.

Graphics look very meh...definitely does not look like a PS4 game probably should. Also I watched an interview with the devs and holy balls, did they rip off a ton of stuff from Batman AA.

But, the game actually looks like it could be a lot of fun. I'll wait for reviews and impressions of fellow GAFers before I jump in though.

That City looks awfully dead, and there seem to be serious pop up issues as well. Will we ever have another spider man two quality game ?

if you go back and play Spiderman 2, its pretty crappy actually. The web swinging is by far the glimmering diamond in a big steaming turd.

EDIT: oh yeah and Bruce Campbell, because Bruce is the man.
