Spider-Man Has Gone Gold For September Release on PS4


Game Informer has the story.

Quote:
Pretty much every PlayStation 4 owner is anticipating September's release of Marvel's Spider-Man, the open-world superhero game starring everyone's favorite webslinger. Today, Insomniac tweeted out that Spider-Man has gone gold, meaning that a master disc has been printed and sent off to manufacturers.

That means the copy you buy at a retail store has basically been finished, not including any post-gold development that might come between now and release.

The image references a meme taken from the 1960s Spider-Man cartoon, showing Spider-Man sitting at a desk with a picture of himself in the back. The actual scene is from the episode Electro the Human Lightning Bolt and involves Spider-Man taking cover behind a desk, but the meme took on a life of its own. Insomniac added their own flair to it by appending Spider-Man's picture once again to the gold disc in the back.

I am excited about this. Everything I have seen about the game looks awesome, so the only way this will not be a day-one-purchase would be if the reviews land and they say that the gameplay just ends up being boring in the long run.

Only slightly more than 4 weeks away and I've got that sweet red PS4 Pro on the way to go with it!

This may be my first not horribly disappointing exclusive for my PS4.

Fuck me. Monster Hunter World (PC) is dropping this week and Tomb Raider drops mid-Sept as well. It's gonna be like having a second job right up through January.

Spiderman in September, Red Dead Redemption II in October. Perfect timing.

Really? Did you not play God of War yet or do you just have questionable taste in games?

Meh people raved about both Zero Horizon Dawn and GoW, personally I didn't like either one at all. People are different that's all.

At first, I wanted to reply: "No need to white-knight the white knight of the troll", but then I re-read Primus' post. Of course, it'd be blatant trolling had he claimed that all PS4 exclusives were "horribly disappointing". But he didn't. He said it might be his first non-disappointing PS4 exclusive, so I'll just assume he only bought "Street Fighter V" and "Gran Turismo Sport" so far. Well, serves him right, then.

The irony here is that "Spider-Man" has been hyped so much, it's very likely to end up a disappointment. I'm pumped for it myself, but every single snippet I've seen so far on the topic of web-swinging looked completely unrealistic and not at all like "Spider-Man 2" and "Spider-Man 3" (which sucked as a game, but actually improved on the races, if I remember correctly). We'll see in a month, I guess...

Honestly, I'm just getting tired of the notion that virtually any negative reaction or response to something warrants someone farting out the term "triggered" each and every time.

Responding to someone or having a negative opinion doesn't mean you're "triggered", for Christ's sake.

I'm not overly hyped for it, although I do plan on picking it up. The combat looks like a slightly-off version of the system from the Arkham games. The web-slinging looks perfectly fine to me from what I've seen; it doesn't seem overly unrealistic, for what it is.

I know Spider-Man 2 was a beloved game, but something tells me things were able to be improved over the past 14 years. It was great at the time, but something tells me it might not be considered quite as good when played in 2018.

You're certainly right about the game as a whole. The camera was wonky, the side missions repetitive/ridiculous ("Yet another balloon? Sheesh!"), and Spider-Man 3 added tedious boss battles and amazingly annoying QTEs to the mix. The swinging, however, holds up very well to this day. It could certainly look better, but I hope controlling the new Spidey will feel just like it did all those years ago.
