Looking through the Spring Sale, some DLC expansions caught my eyes, namely the Marvel's Spider-Man season pass for €10, and the two expansions of Assassin's Creed Origins for €12 together (that apparently cost less when bought individually than the season pass). Are these DLC packs worth buying?

The thing is that I've already finished Spider-Man once but lost my save file, so I'm guessing I'll have to play through the game again until I finish it before I can get access to the DLC. On the other hand, I only played 20 hours of Assassin's Creed Origins before losing my save file so at least I still have plenty of new stuff to experience in that game. Moreover, the Spider-Man DLCs are like 6 hours long collectively while the Origins DLCs are 15 hours collectively according to HowLongToBeat.

I might just give Spider-Man another go if the DLCs are really worth it, but the question is, are they? Or should I just go for the Origins DLCs and are they any good?

@KratosMD I played the Spidey DLC straight after the main story and it’s fine. It’s pretty much more of the same with a couple of new enemy types. The story isn’t much to write home about either.

Basically, if you really loved the game then it’s worth getting but you’re not missing much if you don’t. Having a break from the game first would probably be beneficial to be honest. I wouldn’t say it’s worth replaying the whole game for it if that’s the only way to access it.

I just played Blue Reflection again........learned a few new tricks this time for combat. My favorite JRPG next to Persona 4 Golden.

The PSVR is the best VR system on the market today.

@KratosMD Woah Bro, how do you keep losing save files? That stinks! Do you do cloud back ups through PS Plus?
I still have game saves from random games on PS3 that I’ll never play again.

@Thrillho Alright, I think I'll just skip on buying the Spider-Man DLC then if it's just more of the same. I really don't feel like playing through the entire game either so I'll just wait until the inevitable Spider-Man 2 for more content. Thanks!

@Th3solution I lost all my save files at the same time at the end of 2018 when my hard drive stopped working and I decided to format it. You might recall when I mentioned that my MGSV save file was lost? That was at the same time as well. I lost save files for games like Persona 5 (which made me miss out on bonus items in Royal), Yakuza Kiwami 2 (but I've finished it now!), AC: Origins, Spider-Man and many more before 2018.

I don't think the issue will arise again since this was an extremely special case. I've already upgraded to a hybrid SSD/HDD which should last me at least a decade. So it's not worth uploading my save files to PS+ cloud, especially since I don't even subscribe to the service. I'll also try and finish every game I start playing so I don't play a game for 40 hours like with MGSV and stop in the middle of a playthrough and then risk losing all those hours. As long as I've finished the game, I don't mind losing a save file.

@Th3solution @KratosMD I’ve never understood why PlayStation is tie save data to a particular account. It would make life a lot easier if you’d lost your save data or Snooker yourself with an autosave. If you could just download someone else’s data and use it on your account.

Th3solution

@KratosMD Oh, I guess I forgot you had an HDD failure. And yeah, to be honest, 90% of my save files will never be used again and it wouldn’t devastate me to lose them. But that other 10% are like gold (like my 60 hour partial playthrough of Persona 5 or my 40 hour investment in AC Origins). I’m trying to be better about finishing games all in one go, but sometimes I just feel like changing to something else. ...It’s a superpower I call “ADD.”

@Davehunt Wow, that is good going! If you are into fighting games there are the Infamous games. There is also a Deadpool game which received the remastered treatment on PS4. And if you have VR there is Batman VR, but it is supposed to be a very short experience.

And that is about it from gen, bizarrely there have not been that many games to ride on the success of the MCU & DCU.

Infamous Second Son is a super hero like game if you've not already played it. I thought it was fantastic, I've not played any of the other games so I gather this is very much a self contained story. The DLC, First Light is very good too!

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.

There is no longer a good time to release a game. There are only less s**t times to release a game

@Davehunt If you are looking for superhero games, in the purest sense most games have a protagonist with superhuman powers and so could be considered superhero games. But I’m not trying to be a quibbler, I know what you mean.
But to echo @JohnnyShoulder the closest to the Marvel and DC type ‘feel’ is the Infamous games. Infamous 1 & 2 are trapped on the PS3, but a really good, and Infamous Second Son (with First Light DLC) is a really solid PS4 game. The game Marvel’s Spider-Man borrowed quite a bit from Infamous and so if you liked the gameplay and exploration of Spider-Man then you will probably like flying around Seattle as Delsin Rowe. The Infamous games are more like third person shooters though, but with super powers rather than guns.

Another one that comes to mind is Gravity Rush and Gravity Rush 2. I know it sounds weird, and the games definitely don’t ‘feel’ like traditional superhero games, but at its core, the story of Kat and her gravity shifting and gravity manipulation is essentially a super power and so this is a superhero tale. The gameplay is unique and it has the quirky Japanese overtones, but it’s quite fun to learn to use her powers to fly about and fight enemies. It depends what you enjoyed about those Batman and Spider-Man games, but if it’s the story of an unlikely person developing superpowers and becoming a force to reckon with and take on evil to save the innocent, then GR has you covered.

To stay more traditional to the canon of DC and Marvel, then yeah, try Injustice and especially Injustice 2. They are fighting games, but there is a rudimentary story steeped in DC comic book hero and villain lore. I don’t really play fighting games, but I really enjoyed both but especially Injustice 2. The number of DC characters and villains is voluminous and I learned about so many that I had never known before outside of the usual Justice League staples. The graphics are fantastic and there are several modes to keep you busy after playing through all the character stories.
I can’t comment on Marvel vs Capcom, but I guess those games are supposed to be okay, I don’t know.

And finally, the Telltale games. There are the two DC games — Batman and Batman: The Enemy Within. Honestly, I’ve been meaning to play The Enemy Within myself. I enjoyed the first game. Telltale also made Guardians of the Galaxy, which was critically panned, but I’ll probably play it eventually also since I’m a nerd.

And, if it’s really the Arkham style combat that you crave more of, rather that the story beats of the superhero universe, then Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War basically lifted the combat from the Batman Arkham games, tweaked it, added the Nemesis system and covered it in Lord of the Rings character and storylines. So, that might appeal to you.

@Davehunt You completed the core Arkham trilogy in seven days...?! Holy marathon, Batman!

Well I know there's a lot more to do in the Batman Games but the only thing I did in all 3 games was just the main story mainly so like in Arkham Knight I dunno if dealing with the side missions lead to another story cus I didn't really do the side missions.

Davehunt

RogerRoger

@Davehunt Ah, gotcha. That's slightly more doable, particularly in Arkham City and especially Arkham Knight, although it's still quite the feat. I'd recommend checking out some of the side quests, they're good!

@RogerRoger. Moving the discussion here to keep the review thread tidy. 😄

“bedtime stories with button prompts” 😂 That made me chuckle out loud.

Actually, I’m in a Batman mood and since you really expanded your horizons and have jumped in headfirst into the Spider-Man world (which I am really impressed with by the way, since I remember it wasn’t too long ago that you avoided spider-based anything like the plague), I’m considering going back to Arkham Knight, which as you recall I quit after a couple hours. I also have Hitman the first season downloaded and ready to go — which if I understand the game concept it’s the complete antithesis of linear. 😅
But maybe after my Batman bedtime story with button prompts I’ll be ready for something more open. 😄

@Th3solution You laugh now but, when a reformed Telltale Games announce The Three Little Pigs: Season One, Episode One - A House Made of Straw, remember where you heard it first!

Best of luck if you do return to Arkham Knight. Perhaps it's best to tackle it by jumping off a shorter bat-experience, to ensure a willingness to see the story and characters through any sections you struggled with before. Open world sandboxes can sometimes feel a bit Metroidvania / linear-plus if they centre around the same key locations over and over, but Arkham Knight keeps things varied enough and has some cracking point-to-point interior levels, with only some very minor backtracking in one.

You can make Hitman as linear as you want, if you activate each level's multiple Mission Stories (although following their objective markers can sometimes put Call of Duty's handholding to shame) but yeah, perhaps best to find something a teensy bit more focused before giving it a go!

And thanks, by the way! Although, now that you've mentioned the wall-crawler, when the first cutscene opened on a close-up of a realistic spider flailing around in the breeze of an open window, I might've shuddered and thought to myself "...but Sol promised me it was spider-free!" It was a laughing shudder, though, and totally worth it. What a game. What a freakin' game!

@RogerRoger I’m thrilled that you’ve had such a good time with Spidey.
As an aside, it’ll feel in many ways like a step backwards, but you’re likely to enjoy the rest of your run through Infamous, should you decide to go back. Especially Second Son has some of the exploratory features in a true to life rendition of an American city (Seattle in that case) akin to what Spider-Man has with Manhattan. The traversal is not as fun, but it’s pretty good for early generation. The combat doesn’t really come close to as varied, but it has its own charm. Anyways, cheers for the recs and I’ll see what my mood does. For all I know I might get a hankering for some FIFA when I’m done with The Enemy Within.

@JohnnyShoulder Yeah, I do too. Trying different things does help to get out of a gaming funk like I’ve been in lately.

Usually one of my yearly gaming resolutions revolves around trying to play some games outside my comfort zone. This year I still have a sports game, an FPS, and a racing game to try.
