Amazing Spider-Man Launch Trailer is Full of Garbage
Did you know that Activision’s new Amazing Spider-Man video game—based on the movie reboot that comes out next week—is available in stores TODAY? I did. That’s because I pre-ordered that bitch. It’s in a brown truck, on its way to my apartment right now. To get you in the mood for web-swinging action that might actually be pretty great, take a look at the above trailer, featuring music from a band I didn’t know existed anymore, Garbage.
Now, I know what you’re saying: “Brian! Beenox’s last Spider-Man game wasn’t too hot.” I know. I reviewed it. I was THERE. But this one might be different. I played a demo of the 3DS version (that’s available now on the Nintendo eShop, don’tcha know), and it was actually really fun. And my thinking is thus: if they can manage to capture some really good Spider-Man action on the 3DS, the home console version’s got to be at least pretty competent, right? Right?
Well, hopefully I’ll find out later today. Our own Landon Robinson will be handling the review of the new jammy, while I continue to plug away at detailing the evolution of Spider-Man video games since his Atari 2600 debut back in the ‘80s in our All Your History feature. ENJOY IT, WON’T YOU?
What do you think? I’m pretty excited about this game…but maybe that excitement will be my downfall…
