E3 is an exhausting series of playing games all day, talking about them, and writing about them. It’s a tiring gauntlet that I’d be doing at home anyway. So, here’s what I got my hands on…

Some Footage For Ya:
I have a long history of playing Spiderman games, as in, I’ve played them all. Not all of them are great, but 30seconds in, I knew this game is gonna be something special. The swinging mechanics are wonderful, smooth and fluid. The dialogue is funny and pulls you into the game. The fighting style is familiar, but very Arkham-esk. I spent most of my time swinging around the city, until the Boss fight, which was a cinematic/gameplay masterpiece. The controls were perfect, as the battle wasn’t a button mashing mess, but rather a kinetic series of swinging blocks at Shocker, then moving in for a combo punchfest of pure joy.
I love love love love this game and can’t wait to play it for real.
