The sole reason I bought my PS4 back in 2017 was because of Insomniac’s Marvel’s Spider-Man game. My mind was blown away at how good the game was. I played through Miles Morales earlier this year which allowed me to reminisce playing through Marvel’s Spider-Man. I have been a big fan of Insomniac ever since and when I saw they announced Marvel’s Spider-Man #2 plus a whole new game about Wolverine, I was ecstatic. I wanted to summarize my thoughts on both games.
After watching Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 trailer, my first reaction was how much of a presence Venom will have in this game. Venom is one of the most well-known Spider-Man villains. If there’s any villain to incorporate into a game to generate buzz, Venom is it. There was an after-credit scene in the first Marvel Spider-Man game which leads into who Venom could be. I won’t discuss this here due to it being a major spoiler. This trailer provided just enough without feeling like it’s giving away the entire game.
This trailer was quite short. It shows a blood-stained Wolverine in a bar after he’s fought many men. His knuckles are bloodied, as he’s sitting having a bourbon or a whiskey. It’s been a day. I wouldn’t classify myself as a huge Wolverine fan per se, however, I’m surprised it’s taken this long for Wolverine to have his own game. I imagine this game will be more violent and gritty if Insomniac is staying true to the character. I think there’s a lot of potential in turning this into the ultimate Wolverine game.
I’m still utilizing my PS4 as I haven’t upgraded to the PS5 yet. Both games are slated to be released in 2023 which is probably when I will be forced to upgrade. For now, I will continue to extend the life of my beloved PS4 as I try to wait patiently for both games to be released.
