    Daredevil is way cooler than spiderman. He had to work for his skills. And he's blind and broke. He's like the ninja to Batman's Samurai. 'Course, Cerebus is cooler than any of them. >:]

    I'm putting on a hat so I can take it off for your reference in #4; however, your 'worst example' for #6 is something straight from the comics. Normally he webs his fists to protect them from electricity or some such; but he has, on numerous occasions, done that to give his awesome fists even more "oomph". I'll look through for a few times he has, but it'll be a while.

    I... Completely agree with this article. Never before more so, and I've been a big Henry fan for a long time. At each slide I smiled to myself and nodded. A very bold opening statement, I was hooked from there. My only nuance being in that I just finished Shattered Dimensions, and didn't see any form of Venom(and where was he? Hanging out with Rhino, apparently), but VenomVip7 cleared that up for me. Besides that, this article was amazing. Haters can hate.

    The image showing Anti-Venom is not from Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions, its from Spider-man: Edge of Time. Just saying.

    The reason that I'm intrested in this game is because of that last trailer, it reminded me of arkham city and that pretty much says it all for me.

    If they make this as good to play as Batman: Arkham City i may actually consider buying this.

    For me the Spidey games never got better than Spider-man 2 (movie tie-in). I loved that moment when you make it to the top of the tallest skyscrapers and just hurl yourself off and seeing how late you could leave it to save yourself. The powers were great, the extra villains in it looked great (especially short haired Black Cat) and there was a real sense of speed when you picked up momentum. Ultimate Spider-man was kinda cool but it felt a bit slow.

    Seriously guys, do you have some sort of fetish for mediocre spiderman games? every 'best example' was the same few goddamn mediocre spiderman games. Neversoft's original few spiderman game vastly exceed these games in context of fun and fanservice. >loads of alternate costumes, cameos from even larger ranges of villains and friends. Even those good old cheatcodes so you could play as stan Lee, rather than buy some shitty dlc. I hope you're happy bumming off shattered dimensions
  • FierceDeity - June 25, 2012 6:31 p.m.

    ah man neversoft's spiderman on playstation was one of my first console games :)
  • Blazdav - June 25, 2012 6:05 p.m.

    Can anyone tell me which game the title picture -- with Spidey giving a thumbs-up -- is from? It doesn't look like Shattered Dimensions, or Web of Shadows, or any of the big ones...
  • Cyberninja - June 25, 2012 6:18 p.m.

    Its from U/MvC3, you can tell because the background is the RE stage from the game
  • darthelmet117 - June 26, 2012 4:30 a.m.

    It is one of the opening title cinematics from Marvel vs Capcom 3

    nah it's when he wins a fight

    . I can not understand why arkam asylum is considered so good. I felt confined while playing it. The gameplay is ok but I hated the way they portrayed the villains. They were childish and stupid. And the story is pointless. The game felt wrong. I quit after 2 hours and never played again.

    Fed troll is fed by me, but is a troll none the less.

    You quit after two hours, but you found the story pointless, and the game confining? How incredibly perplexing. Hmm. I can't understand why you don't understand why other people like it... Tricky one. This will take some thought... Arrgh, if only there was a clue as to why! Some crazy, mysterious connection between a lack of understanding and a lack of information... I give up. This mystery is insolvable. Honestly, one for the ages. :p To be honest i'm not huge fan either, in large part owing to my lack of interest in comic books. I find them far too short and too often insultingly simplistic. Excepting Dave Sim, of course. Cerebus is the best parody of inquisition-era papal rome ever written (sorry, Python), and possibly the only attempt at accurately recreating the days leading up to the death of Oscar Wilde. Melmoth, book 8, is amazing on so many levels... I digress. Aside from the combat, which is fluid and addictive, it's not really emotionally provocative enough for my tastes (although watching the young doctor turn into Harley Quinn was pretty powerful). But while It's no Assassin's Creed, Asylum does qualify as a fully functioning, full size sandbox. Once i got out of the corridors i discovered it to be quite a bit bigger than i expected, and i absolutely understand why it was an almost universal contender for GotY. *GASP!!* Hey wait! If remember correctly, it took more than two hours for the game to allow access to the full map...! No. No way. It couldn't possibly be that simple-- could it? Could there truly be a connection between a lack of information and a lack of understanding?! I must call my publisher! I feel a self-help book coming on! XD

    ...very bold first sentence to say the least.... But, yeah, Spiderman games are really really awesome. Usually. They also usually involve Venom in some way, which I'm okay with. Ultimate Spider Man was and is my favorite SM game ever. It WAS favorite superhero game....but then Arkham City came out..... Still a close second though.
  • DualWieldingIsNotFeasible - June 25, 2012 4:24 p.m.

    I'm actually somewhat interested in the new Spider-Man game. Sure, it's a movie tie-in, but after after the utter disappointment of Prototype 2, I'm itching for a decent 'navigate around a huge open world with crazy powers' game. Also, I see what you did with the title there, Hank.
  • Pwnz0r3d - June 25, 2012 4:09 p.m.

    I'm assuming by "comparable to Batman's rouges gallery" you mean that basically the only Marvel villains known to the mainstream are Spidey's, just like Batman. For Marvel, EVERYONE knows who Venom and Doctor Octopus are, even if they've never touched a comic. For DC, EVERYONE knows who the Joker is. Both heroes are pretty much the mascots for their respective companies.
  • obviouslyadouche - June 25, 2012 2:50 p.m.

    I Can't be the only person who takes issue with the first sentence. Great article otherwise but i have to do this because I'm such a die hard Batman fan.
