Spiderman PS4

Post by stimpy » Tue Sep 11, 2018 11:16 am

No thread?????
I don't have it (don't even have a PS4), but this may be the game to get me to buy one.
I've always wanted to play the Uncharted games and Horizon Zero Dawn, but not enough to pull the trigger.
Any impressions out there?
It makes my dookie twinkle.

I held off on buying it because Shadow of the Tomb Raider is my priority for this month, but I have watched the first 90 minutes or so of game-play and it looks great. Very Arkham like in the open world and combat, but with spidey's humor and acrobatics. They've gone RPG-like with levels giving skill points to invest in various skill trees. Also, there are collectibles that get you points to use for upgrading your suits and gadgets and there are little puzzles you can do as Peter to earn experience and maybe for other purposes.

I'll definitely be buying it after I finish the new Tomb Raider.

If you pick Horizon Zero Dawn, there is a complete edition with the expansion included.HZD is awesome. I have not played the expansion. My copy of Uncharted 4 is still in shrink from my birthday last year.

I can only say that what I saw yesterday (my son was watching some Youtuber play it online while nattering away annoyingly), was amazing. Perhaps the best looking game I've ever seen. Ever. Graphics and fluidity are eye popping gorgeous. I wish we had it for Steam/PC.

That's how I got kids!

Oh, the game. I could never get into Uncharted 3 and that kind of threw me off the series. I'll give it a try... after Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Spider-Man, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Jagged Alliance: Rage, Forza Horizon 4, Life is Strange 2, Red Dead Redemption 2... umm it's going to be busy fall.

I picked up Spiderman. It seems like it's going to be good, although the first few hours are extraordinarily hand-holdy and I find that intensely annoying. That aside, the gameplay seems solid, it looks pretty damn good, and swinging around the city is very soothing. It doesn't seem as bad this time around, but there are still hints of this at times:

I haven't progressed very far; I got out of the first few tutorialish missions and then just started swinging around the city doing random things.

Does the PS4 Pro make that much of a difference? I'd thought about it, but I play so infrequently (even though it's on a 4K TV). Also the SSD - What drove that? I don't find load times all that slow on the PS4 currently.. I think I might of just entered old guy territory.

I'm glad I upgraded to the Pro but it did require some futzing on my part because my receiver didn't handle 4K pass-through. And I haven't seen a burning need to put an SSD in mine, all I did was immediately swap out the 500GB harddrive with a 2TB one. But that's probably a conversation best had in a different thread.

Played some more last night. I probably shouldn't have chosen the hardest difficulty level, because the fights typically involve half a dozen dudes, and despite Spiderman's super strength, it takes as many punches for me to knock one of them out as it does for one of them to knock me out, and there are six of them. The combat pretty much requires that you fight exactly how you'd expect he would, except that there's a 40 year old man driving instead of a super hero. It hasn't been working out to well for me.

That said, the plot's been engaging so far, and as far as I'm concerned, it's worth it just to be Swinging Around Manhattan Simulator.

There *are* other good games on the PS4, too... I mean Horizon Zero Dawn is the reason I bought a PS4 and it was totally worth it. Happy to have it for Spider-man as well.

I love that they mapped dodge to Circle with no remapping instead of Triangle like every other 10v1 action game made in the last decade, I really needed new things in my life! Change is fucking great! It really sets them apart!

Similarly, I'm having some mental challenges switching back and forth between playing Spider-Man and Dragon Quest. Dragon Quest has some stupid jumping puzzles even though the jumping physics are as advanced as an Atari 2600 game. I keep on trying to webshoot my way to the roof of a building or swing my way through a city.

Don't play much on my PS4 at all, but I'm really digging Horizon alot. May wait for a spidey sale. The gameplay looks so much like the Arkham games that I have played to death. Just don't want a reskinned Arkham even though Spidey has always been one of my favorites.

It does? I'm about 12 hours in and haven't seen one yet, and I've been exploring every nook and cranny I can see. Maybe I just missed them.

There was a simple one right before you leave the first town. Little kid wants you to get something off the roof. Next city someone asks you to get a cat off a roof.

Neither one is super complex, but they just seemed really out of place given how basic the jump action is.
