It looks like taking and refining the awesome swinging from Spider-Man 2, mixing it with Sunset Overdrive's parkour traversal, and throwing in Batman: Arkham-style combat and stealth, but with more flashy Spider-moves and environmental interaction (one gameplay video showed Spider-Man tossing some fools around, and then using his webbing to pull some scaffolding into them as they tried to advance on him). It looks like it may even edge out the Arkham games, but we'll see. Well, not me, I won't see. People with PS4s will see.

It seems like there's not a lot in the way of Spider-Man for Xbox anymore. None of the old games are compatible with the One. The only games on the One are the tie-ins for the Andrew Garfield movies, and those aren't even offered in the Xbox store anymore, so you'd have to buy a physical copy.

I thought I might download some of the older Spider-Man games (I never played any after Ultimate Spider-Man) for PC, but Steam doesn't offer them, either. And physical copies are super expensive on Amazon ($130 for Web of Shadows... why?).

I decided to just illegally download Web of Shadows, but it just wouldn't work and would give me an error dialog box any time I tried to start it up (and Googling around, it looks like this is a common problem for people). The gods don't want me playing Spider-Man, I guess.
Have you tried emulators?

for example PS2 has several Spiderman games

play them for free

Does anyone remember the Spider Man game for the first movie that came out in ~2001 for Gamecube/PS2? That was one of the first games where I remember thinking that the movement itself was fun. Swinging around and climbing up buildings was awesome and kind of unlike anything I had played before at that point

Oh yeah, I had the game for the first Spider-Man movie. I loved it as a kid, though I think the one for the second movie, with the free-roam and physics-based swinging where your webs actually anchor to buildings instead of just the sky, essentially made the first obsolete for me.

Though weirdly, the first one still had better graphics. And when you beat the game, you could play it again as the Green Goblin, with his glider and bombs and shit. That was awesome

Spidey 2 was where it was at. First time I ever felt someone realized the potential of what a free-roam game could do. I'd barely ever feel like fighting bad guys, just enjoyed swinging around the city and performing stunts.

The Mysterio fights were also bloody hilarious.

I thought it was going to be a letdown stacked to the rafters with quicktime events but after watching the tech demo of the movement controls in action i'm actually starting to get pumped.

I got it for Christmas 2002 and my brother and I sat slackjawed in front of the TV for days on end even though we both sucked at it just admiring the lighting.

playing through Paper Mario Thousand Year Door again

my first play through I was a wee lad and I remember it being super hard hitting for a Mario RPG

it's as every bit as good now as it was then I'm instantly hooked, anyone who hasn't played this game get yourself an unpissed on Gamecube and this game I'm telling you

Right now binding of isaac’s kicking my ass on the switch. Only beat Mom once. Got killed in her womb by a decapitated baby’s head that was coughing spiders that spit blood at me

I downloaded a PS3 emulator, but I just couldn't understand how to run it, so I deleted it.

I am not a computer whiz.

well newer consoles are a bit trickier and will require your computer to have decent processing power but as long as you're using a desktop that shouldn't be a problem

I don't emulate anything past the PS2 and Gamecube so I can't really help, I just have a laptop

Care to recommend a good PS2 emulator? Got a hankering for some Silent Hill goodness.

a ps2 is dirt cheap anyway, should be easy to pick a decent one up somewhere anyway, shadaloo.

I have one, but I no longer have a CRT TV and older games just look like absolute shit on current screens. Also I need to record gameplay.

SH2 really is one of the best fucking games ever made. 1's pretty good and 3 is great but there's just something very special about 2. Everyone should experience it. 4 was...not supposed to even be an SH game and the less said about every other one after the better, barring the PH demo and what it was supposed to be.

I've been playing through Half Life over the weekend. This game is fucking difficult on a relentlessly unfair level. I've only tried playing it once or twice before but I gave up in frustration when the game punished me for going what I thought was the right way. This time around I somehow managed to reach the Xen stage. It wasn't without liberal references to a walkthrough to help with some obtuse puzzles.

So now I’m a space pirate robot cowboy engaging in tactical gun battles aboard other ppl’s ships, scouting for water to keep my steampowered motherboards alive. The art in Steamworld Heist is dark, detailed, gritty, yet cartoony somehow. It’s its own. Pulling off stunt shots that ricochet off the walls of a spaceship and into the back of some robotic goon‘s dumb noggin is so satisfying, it hurts. I like all the steamworlds but this is something special

i've been playing hexcells, hexcells plus, and hexcells infinite. puzzle game sorta like minesweeper but way more complex and interesting. got all 3 for less than $5, if you're a visual puzzle person you'll like it. it took me like 11 hours to perfect the first game and i haven't been able to finish the second one yet. you can 'miss' and still beat the levels but if you're guessing you're missing the point, you never have to guess, there's always a logic to the next possible move(s)
