Man, the Avengers game is like being transported directly into one of the amazing comic books I grew up reading!

(Disclaimer: I love this game, I’m just poking fun.)

if they have comics like these in the game id be leaning toward it.

Can Spidey escape the sinister PlayStation prison and reunite with all his fans across all gaming platforms?!

(disclaimer: I hate this game and its awful anti-consumer business practices, I’m not poking fun. This is a genuine complaint)

I feel like games and companies in general have crossed a line in the last few years with their business practices. We need to stop asking ourselves if we CAN do something, and start asking ourselves if we should.

I remember when this was actually common, and kind of preferred it as having unique characters that were console specific gave actual meaning to which version you decided to get if you had more than one console, or in the case of only owning one console it was a way to show off what you had. The only complaint I ever had was the lack of cross-platform PvP where this would actually be a deal, getting to see the PS exclusive going up against the X-Bot exclusive character, it would have been a way to use the console rivalry as… Read more »

The only “point” to having more than one console is to spend more money for largely redundant capability that does not scale. (You can only use one at a time, right?) 90% of the evils of all modern entertainment industries stem from tight coupling between content and platform. Companies should not even be allowed to own both, and there should never be legally backed limits to who can use the technical interfaces that join them. I mean never mind the “I pay 5 different subscription fees to see all the shows I want” issue. How about “I have to use… Read more »

Back with PS2 and X-Box there were differences in the game libraries though is the thing. Case and point, I have zero interest in sports and find FPS games boring. Yet I bought an X-Box because I was a huge Star Wars fan and KOTOR was a really fun game that I enjoyed and played to death. Same with Panzers Dragoon Orta and Jet Set Radio Future. Grand total I owned less than a dozen X-Box games, but I loved them dearly. At the same time I owned about 2/3 of the PS2 library and loved those games just as… Read more »

Wow, that’s one of the dumbest arguments I’ve seen!
So if you have two options:
a) everyone gets everything
b) you get something unique but in turn you can’t have lots of other unique things
… you go for b). Thanks for being part of the problem, dude. We really don’t appreciate it.

Console exclusives were literally a single character or a single stage, a far cry from ‘lots of other unique things’. At the peak of this you had a grand total of THREE exclusives, one character/skin/whatever for PS, one for X-Bot and one for PC. You get one and miss out on two, big deal. Life isn’t about having everything all the time, it’s about making choices, having to decide between several things when you can only have one, like a car, or a wife (in most countries at least) then being happy with the choice you made at the end… Read more »

You need to realise its not the content (or lack thereof) itself which people tend to have a problem with, its the principle behind it. Outside of situations when the money coming from an exclusivity deal is actually contributing to the development of the game/content, any situation where something is an exclusive has absolutely no benefit to the consumer. Yet it DOES incentivise someone to spend a shitload of extra money on a console they might only end up using for one or two games and that’s it. Its often a marketing strategy to make money for the big boys,… Read more »

Spider-man is not even part of the story. You would literally miss out on nothing by not having him. Heck, I am pretty sure you can not even play as him on PS yet. You are butt hurt for no reason and you are missing out on a very fun game. It is not anti-consumer, it is a deal PS made with Square Enix. Sony has been making exclusive deals with Square for decades, but I am sure they are worried about upsetting you.

Even if he is not part of the story, the problem is it creates an imbalance as X-Box and PC lack an exclusive of their own to even it out. Imagine how people would react if PlayStation didn’t have Spiderman but PC did.

There is nothing wrong with console exclusive content, when it is fair and equal across all platforms. Like say, PC having Dr. Strange and X-Box having Starlord, neither appearing in the story but playable same as Spiderman is for PS.

Honestly, the more I hear about this game, the more I think it’s been utterly polluted by it’s monetization scheme and it’s game bloat. Your comics have not helped this matter.

the more I hear about the more I think it’s a warframe-like but not as good as the true one.

Amazing mock-up. I had to look several times before I could identify your drawing style (which, of couse, once you see you can’t UNsee, so I find it amusing that I was so thoroughly fooled). When the image loaded, I saw the covers, and they registered so strongly that I didn’t even read the text, I went straight to your caption to try and understand why you were posting covers of old Marvel comics.

This is praise, I think. Either that or just me realising how little attention I pay to things sometimes.

…let’s go with praise.

I am more surprised by the fact that it wasn’t a comic about the PS5 Preordering Shit show and the 3080s yesterday…..Tuesday is going to be so bad that it might be worse than the PS5 Preorders considering EVERYONE knows when to preorder and these sites are totally going to crash

the campaign was fun, and in my eyes the strong part of the game, for that it was a bit short with quiet a lot of filler missions. The looter shooter part of the game is really meh, especially as matchmaking is not working properly. From the loot not changing appearance, awfull inventory management, obvious bugs, really incontinent vendor placement, 5 second waiting time after coming out from character screen, bad and few bosses mechanics, lackluster skins and so on and on… Over all they really got the superhero feel right, and most of my critics are minor and easily… Read more »
