Neversofts will always hold a spot in my heart.  this looks good. But the CE is a eh atm. Is that statue good quality?

Not sure yet apparently the Spider-Man part on top IS a part of it. But the lower part (covered by the raft box) is apparently something spoilerly they will show later. (Judging by the price 150$ price it’s going to be a 60-70$ Gentle giants statue)

There might be a chance that Miles in his Spidey costume is on the bottom.

Jesus Christ, this looks fun as fuck. The city is incredibly detailed, I like the abundance of brown and orange tones, it makes the city feel bigger and even cozy. Much better and more colorful than just a lot of grey. The art direction here is top notch.

So with all the drama about the game lately(shocker, the footage we’ve been seeing was a vertical slice. Sucks, but expected given this industry), what’re your thoughts here? I’m still excited even though I’m slightly disappointed at this

From what I get, a vertical slice is a proof of concept right? In which case, you'd need to be more specific, are you saying the press demos, gameplay, and everything else has been proof of concepts or something?

Not that it matters, as Wraith said, games change all the time in development. Why do you think a lot of the old PS2 demo discs always had a warning about how a game was in production and this small demo didn't represent the final product? Insomniac has an extremely impressive track record with only one game being shit because EA forcefully altered their concept to please test audiences, I very much doubt that Insomniac would half-ass it. I'm still extremely excited myself.

People seem to try to be making this out to be another Aliens Colonial Marines or Watchdogs, but I don’t think 1. Insomniac is infamous and shit like Ubisoft and Gearbox and low on gamer trust and 2. They didn’t actually lie about anything iirc?

>People complaining about some water puddles in a game that otherwise looks incredible in every aspect.

Probably XONE owners :P

This Spider-Man game looks amazing (no pun intended), I have my pre-order on and I'll keep it. Insomniac should be proud of it. I believe this will be another mark in super hero games, just like the Batman Arkham series was. And it might as well be the beginning of perhaps a MGU? Marvel Gaming Universe. Would love this so much. The discussion about downgrade is absolutely ridiculous in this day and age, as if companies never do that, right? As if marketing isn't like that? As if your Big Mac really looks like this, right? Seriously, internet...

Reviews have officially dropped. 

IGN: 8.7 out of 10: 

Gamespot: 9 out of 10

Jim Sterling: 

ACG: 

In general, it seems like it's extremely fantastic, with a few nibbles in the open world holding it back. 

Also, on a side note, ACG's review confirms there's 25 different suits in the game.

How can a game with the Sinister Six and side villains like Shocker or Kingpin lack in boss fights? Don't tell me some of the villains get imprisoned off-screen or without a fight.

Digital Foundry has done an analysis that's given us an explanation for some of the puddlegate stuff, specifically, Spidey's suit. The resolution is the same, the texture of the costume has been changed to represent a different kind of material due to the original texture looking like plastic, while the new one looks like cloth. Because of this, they shine light differently.
