Update: Seems the legal department got a hold of actor Tony Todd, after he revealed Marvel’s Spider-Man 2’s intended release date and marketing plans. Writing on Twitter, he said there’d be “no more hints”, and posted a photo of himself in a swimming pool. “My lips are now underwater,” he said.
Original Article: It would appear that Venom voice actor Tony Todd doesn’t care much for the NDA he undoubtedly signed. Writing on Twitter, the star effectively confirmed that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is planned to release in September on PS5, with a massive ad campaign planned for the month prior. “Hold on to your… And hold [your] breath,” he exclaimed. “Gonna be necessary!”
Obviously this isn’t particularly mind blowing information. The original Marvel’s Spider-Man enjoyed a hugely successful September launch, and developer Insomniac has already confirmed that the title is on track for a 2023 release. Todd will likely get into trouble for this tweet, but he’s not exactly unveiling anything we couldn’t have inferred already.
Of course, just because a September release date is planned internally, doesn’t mean the game will hit it – there are a number of things that could still change. But it looks like Sony has a month in mind, and we respect Todd for making that information public when he’ll have definitely signed contracts instructing him not to!
One other thing to note here is that Sony’s revamped PS5 hardware model, with a purported detachable disc drive, is also apparently scheduled to release in September. That means the company could be plotting an absolutely gigantic month for its newest console, as there’s no doubt Spider-Man is going to seriously drive sales this holiday.
Hopefully they don't wait until August to show gameplay
Spider Man 2 and Starfield out in September, going to be a great month.
Hopefully Tony Todd doesn't get into too much trouble for this!
Well if Sony is gonna continue acting like they have no first party exclusives, leave it to the voice actors to do the work.
Tony Todd shouldn't be worried. This franchise isn't known for recasting major characters.
Ready for more spiderman!
@MordmitTotschlag they won't dare to mess with candy man!
Voice actors make the best leakers appearently, just like Jenna Coleman leaked Xenoblade Chronicles 3 about half a year before it got announced
Spidey sense tingling.
Starfield or Spider-man first? These are the tough choices I live for. lol
But it is complicated in that Insomniac games usually release pretty polished Day 1, whereas BGS games do not. But Starfield is on Game Pass.
Decisions, decisions. It's tough being a gamer
Shame, would’ve been great to play over the summer
@Mattock1987 Was always going to be a holiday-ish game. It's the kind of tentpole franchise they'll pin all their Xmas marketing on.
The first was one of the few Sony first party games I actually finished, along with the first horizon. But the same formula meant I got bored shortly after starting MM, and didn’t even bother to start HFW. This will really need to offer something different.
Surely we will see gameplay this E3 or other summer event to start the hype for release.
Found where all the marketing budget is going @NEStalgia 😉
I can see them making this “rumored” September date (didn’t Australia already announce it anyway 🤷🏻♂️) as they only have 1 console to have it run on, and this is technically their 3rd game counting MM, so you add an experienced dev group w/ a specific piece of hardware you should be able to hit your target.
So when do we get Spider-Man Complete + Miles Morales: Remastered for PS5?
Now just to mess you, Nintendo to announce new 3D Mario Platform game for September 😂
Now that be a month to remember.
They're going to move it to October to avoid Starfield and COD. Spiderman 2 will be good but it wont be on the level of Zelda and Starfield
@Dezzy70 Well Ninty does need to announce a game, any game, after Pikmin 4 in July, and it has been 6 years since the last new 3D Mario (a decade for new 2D and Kart) so it is possible. Don’t even have a new Pokémon this year, just some dlc. 130 million Switch need some new games for the holidays.
@Neonix @Rukkz @themightyant @IAmAshCohen17 I know which game I'll be playing (Spidey 2), and the other I'll be ignoring until it's dirt cheap (Starfield).
Yes I know Starfield will be "free" via Game Pass, but I'd rather wait and own it for dirt cheap.
@Neonix, you are right. Does @Rukkz have any idea what he or she is saying?
@get2sammyb that makes sense, still a shame as because I’m a teacher, I don’t get to game a lot until the holidays. It’s a first-world problem I admit
@Rukkz zelda comes out in May so that's not an issue. And I really don't think Sony would move spiderman for starfield! If anything it would be the other way around! Spiderman is a massive franchise!
As much as I'm looking forward to Starfield, I'm not expecting a great polished experience on release, Spiderman 2 will be.
@jrt87 Perhaps. But i'm personally more excited for Starfield! and to be honest I've played every BGS game at launch since Morrowind and the glitches are part of the charm
@KidBoruto I'll probably be playing Starfield for months... years? By that point Spidey 2 will be cheaper. Whereas Spider-man 2 will probably be over in a few days. (That's not a criticism btw, just the realities of scale)
@Dezzy70 @rjejr Mario will be being saved for Switch 2 i'm 95% sure. The other 5% is weird Nintendo decisions.
Spider-Man 2 is the one who knocks... Any game coming up against it, will lose!
I want Sony to release spider man 2 the same week as Starfield 😂.
@Dezzy70 @rjejr I think September will be given to Metroid, either Prime 2 Remastered or Prime 3 Remastered (in the latter case Prime 2 Remastered being shadow dropped in June).
@Total_Weirdo We do have the May and "E3 time" rumors for the next PlayStation showcase, hopefully one of them pan out to be true.
@rjejr You can already buy both of those games as a native PS5 bundle. The Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition still exists and goes on sale very frequently.
Best Buy: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/marvels-spider-man-miles-morales-ultimate-edition-playstation-5/6459585.p?skuId=6459585
Awesome. Hopefully that means Sony has another big game for November too!
Sony: Tony you can't just reveal the release date like this.
Tony: We are Venom! And we can do whatever we want!
@rjejr LOL, convenient they announce this right AFTER MS announces Starfield in September when everything thought Starfield was June and Spiderman was November, huh?
@Dezzy70 I TOLD you ages ago MS was going to try to peg Starfield around Spiderman! But of course Sony always goes last....always has, always will
@themightyant TBH I couldn't care much less about Spiderman 2. The first one really disappointed me from Insomniac, and I'm not a Marvel/Spidey fan so I'm in it wholly for what Insomniac brings to the table, and not the brand. If it looks much better though I might bite. I won't get my preorder pin this time though.
If this is true, I can't imagine Insomniac would want it revealed like that. Unless he was given permission this is quite shoddy behaviour from the actor.
With how Sony is such mutes nowadays. If we didn't get leaks like this we would never get Playstation news.
Was one of the games I was looking forward to the most when I got a ps5 ..both Spiderman games....was quite disappointed tbh though ..they where okay but I guess I was expecting quality of the Arkham games and I dont think they hold a candle to them....still looking forward to trying this one though
Spider-Man 2 is gonna be yuge! Loved the first game but enjoyed Miles Morales even more. If they up the stakes this time with the story, it could be something really special.
@Ken_Kaniff I still remember the time when people were mad because Sony used to show the same games over and over again and also they use to show only cinematics.
If they aren't showing things is because there is nothing to show. Don't forget that we are barely starting to close de covid era, a lot of work was delayed. God of War for example as impressive as it is still feels like a ps4 level designed game and the reason it's pretty simple, it wasn't meant to be released in the start of the ps5 third year.
@Americansamurai1 the only problem is how much game play do you really want to see ? i don't want to be spoiled , im sure it doesn't play too different and i hope not from the first game.
Yes I think they must have a big game for end of 2023 or who knows Switch 2 or even Switch Pro.
With a Switch Pro it would stay in the Switch family and count as Switch console sales.
@KidBoruto And that's fair enough, that's your choice.
Personally I'll be jumping into both in September.
I feel like I'm the only one on the planet that doesn't really like Spiderman as a character, and thought the game was disappointing in its repetitive Ubisoft like open world design. Rife with boring side content, and the 'do this to reveal more and more icons to chase..... 'consisting of of repetitive collectible gathering and side garbage.
I do wonder if I did like Spiderman cheese, maybe I would like the game more? I just don't see how the very basic and stale design is so overlooked when remembering this game. I do worry Spiderman 2 will play it safe, do the exact same thing and end up feeling less than it could have been much like Horizon Forbidden West, and every assassins creed game in the last 10 years.
I really wanted to love Spiderman, and fell into fomo and bought the remastered and miles morales. Spiderman was such a disappointment that I never even booted up miles morales. Really bounced off this IP like a brick wall.
Is morales a better game or a trimmed down bit of more of the same?
Who's saying the new Zelda will be spectacular though? We've seen almost nothing. Just because it carries the ''Legend of Zelda'' name doesn't mean it'll be automatically good.
Just look at the DS games for exemple.
I for one have no faith in Tears of the Kingdom unless they show us some more stuff. So far all i've heard is that it's just the same world from BotW but with sky islands.. for the ''low'' price of 70 bucks! Yay...
Tony Todd is a SICK choice for Venom! That voice in Candy Man is iconic. HYPE!!!🔥🔥🔥
@KundaliniRising333 Aren’t you buying RE4 due to fomo as well? You mentioned about it having so many issues. You really just got to buy what you enjoy because it seems most big releases don’t do anything for you. Do some research on indie games and if they don’t excite you take a few years off from gaming. There’s no point in playing stuff you don’t like just to talk about it with others. I traveled to a bunch of countries in my twenties and didn’t game much. Once I got married and spent more time at home I got into so many new types of games. Now I’m more excited about gaming than I’ve ever been. Btw I think you said earlier that RE4 was 70 bucks. It’s actually 60 since it’s cross gen
Considering tweeting that could potentially open you up to lawsuits and I imagine Tony Todd is more intelligent than that, I am not unconvinced this is a marketing stunt from Insomniac.
@twitchtvpat really curious on how much the leap is going to be graphically and hopefully the city's bigger and somewhat different we just had two games set there. Really wonder if a multiverse will come in play to change it up.
Tony Todd puts every game leaked to shame. Best leaker in the business!
@KaijuKaiser no I'm holding off on re4 for sure until I hear more about what may come in patches.
In terms of your assumptions. Because I don't like exactly what you like and voice relevant criticisms I need some sort of gaming cleanse or break in order to find the magic again?
@jrt87 gotcha. Yah I'm genuinely hoping just that aspect is fine tuned because the overall gameplay was decent if not repetitive in combat.
Both games are much better when you ignore the side quests and just play the main story.
The stories are pretty solid and they are well paced. But the side content is monotonous.
@OrtadragoonX yah I have such a problem with that. I love open worlds to explore and frequently find myself going on tangents, then fall victim to the repetitive sourced open world burnout.
Perhaps I'll give it another try focusing just on the story alone.
@themightyant Easy choice. Go with Spiderman 2. Starfield is going to be a bug fest for months and you won't have to worry about having a story spoiled for you since that game is all about exploration and not so much the narrative. Having Spiderman 2 spoiled would kind of suck.
@Americansamurai1 "Hopefully they don't wait until August to show gameplay"
What difference does it make? If they don't show gameplay because they're trying to hide how bad it is, then yeah, that's bad. If they embargo reviews until release day (after preorders can't be cancelled), then that's a big warning sign. I don't think that's likely from Insomniac, but we'll see.
But if they don't want to pump the hype months before it's going to be released, and instead wait until it's close and you can preorder, I can respect that.
@Americansamurai1 Candyman! Candyman! Can do whatever a candy can!
@OrtadragoonX Monitor that's an understatement, the open world is terrible. It's bland enough in the main game but in miles it's like watching paint dry except you're mashing square while doing it.
@KundaliniRising333 You're not alone. Like I said earlier I don't care about the marvel or spider ip, 8 bought the game on preorder because I trusted insomniac completely but I thought the actual game was a big disappointment. I still assume Disney is the problem but who knows.
@RobN if they wait to show anything until August than I don't respect that. We haven't seen anything new first party, the only 1st party game we know coming this year is spiderman 2. It's time for Sony to start showing things. The horizon dlc comes out next month and all we've seen was a teaser back in December.
N.i.c.e. thats cool if that month holds up.spiderman is going to be amazing. Just like ps4 spiderman.word up son
the only single-player im legit all happy inside for
@Rukkz you can't be serious? Zelda maybe but you think the casual market is going for an unknown game made buy the dude who made fallout 76 lol over a ip beloved for over 60 years plus ? Lol I'd love to know what coke you're sniffing
I like how he doesn’t even take responsibility for his actions in that follow up tweet😂
@Doublecell You know I'm right, even right now Skyrim and Fallout 4 each on Steam have more players than every Sony single player game combined
Fallout 4 on Steam alone sold over 20M copies unlike Sony games that need to get bundled to inflate sales
Also Spider-man 2 won't score anywhere near as high as Zelda and Starfield either because Insomniac aren't a top tier studio.
I'm sorry, you may not like it, but its true
@KaijuKaiser Insomniac have never made a game with good writing or a compelling story so getting spoiled in Spider-man 2 is like getting spoiled in a Call of Duty campaign
How’d he plan a picture like that for a follow up tweet that quickly? This smells like it’s an intentional leak. Maybe Imsoniac not happy Sony want this under wraps until August?
Anyway, very excited to hear more!
Easy choice what to play first. Spider-Man 2 it is. Primarily for two reasons, one Insomniac’s games are polished at launch Bethesda not so much. Secondly, Spider-Man 2 is likely a short 8 hour ride I’ll complete in a couple of days tops.
@NEStalgia You're not thinking clearly, theres no 'convenient that they announced this' as they haven't announced it at all?
Not every bit of news needs to be a political maneauvre, but it seems clear that's your headsapce, which is a shame.
Remember when games were about fun and not an excuse to fall into tribalism? No, I didnt think you would remember that....
@Rukkz blah blah blah my opinions are facts. I'm such an edgelord.
@Doublecell Is that dude a troll? Why are there so many who are hating on this game? Man, this place has gotten really ***** lately. For it being a PlayStation site, not many people seem to enjoy this console.
@Relygon The first Spiderman game was nearly 20 hours. There's no reason to think this game would be less than half of that length, especially with an expanded roster. I think this game hits about 25 hours. However, it will definitely be shorter than Starfield.
They already mentioned Fall in the official PS Blog last year, so this isn’t a huge surprise. Wonder if there’s a dedicated State of Play in August.
I’m kinda tempted to just skip all the preview coverage content for Spider-Man 2 and just jump in blind when the game comes out. Loved the first game and everything else Insomniac has put out since, so I trust on them to deliver with this one as well.
@KaijuKaiser Perhaps. I hope you’re right, but I have a lingering feeling it’s going to be more like Miles Morales which was significantly shorter, about 8 hours or so.
@jrt87 Agreed, but its still annoying when every bit of news tries to be framed with tribalism in mind
I've seen every single gen of gaming since its inception, and there was none of this in the early days. It started rearing its head in the early Saturn vs PS days and has been a nuicence since.
I was already in my early thirties 25 years ago, and was working on a 'James Pond' sequal on the game gear and a 3d racing game for the Atari Jaguar when I first started noticing unwarranted tribalism. Shame it never went away.
GOTY right here!!!
@IAmAshCohen17 only difference is Spiderman 2 is absolutely guaranteed to be a GOTY contender. Starfield……we just don’t know. Hopefully it’ll live up to the hype!!
@sjbsixpack Fingers crossed they are both GOTY contenders. Hopefully the delay with Starfield has given them more time to polish, but I know being a BGS title to be cautious
@KundaliniRising333 Completely agree, I got it after hearing so much positivity and I genuinely felt like I was playing some generic, forgotten open world game from 2008. It was such an odd contrast to what people here made it out to be. And yeah, the character doesn't work for me anymore. He used to be my favourite Marvel character about 20 years ago. As I've got older I can't really see any appeal. He's basically just a ***** who likes swinging on a rope and making cringeworthy "witticisms".
Spider-man 2 will be an (optional) 2 player open world game.
You and a friend will be able to play as Miles & Peter and swing around NYC at the same time.
Story missions can be done together with boss fights using a bot for single players (or just on your own if decided).
That will be the 'new thing'.
@KaijuKaiser so do you come to these comment sections to hate on everyone that has a different opinion than you, and genuinely wants a space to read and comment amongst people whom only share an identical taste for games and an allegiance to one corporation and their product? you really jump on anyone who has different tastes.
It's not hate to want better, or to be willing to criticise our offer legitimate areas of concern and/or improvement you would like to see in a medium and platform you love.
You called that guy a troll for stating his opinion on Zelda which he rightly stated Has had massive popularity for over a century, and discount anyone interested in the massive worldwide popularity of titles from the elder scrolls/fallout developer as somehow inferior to a single console specific Spiderman game.
It kinda reads like you are the one trolling anyone whom doesn't share a certain level of hive mind you want to connect with in terms of playstation. Unfortunately, that level of blind allegiance doesn't better the medium or the platform and only encourages them to contune to shell out live service schemes and engage with us inky if their is a marketing deal in place.
Want better when there is lacking. Embrace diversity of opinion.
It's a quality and community enriching way to approach all of this.
@KaijuKaiser oh yeah he's definitely a troll. 😂
@KundaliniRising333 Zelda? No idea what you're talking about. We're talking about Spiderman 2. The guy who I called a troll is the person who is saying his opinion is a fact. That right there is a bunch of nonsense that is only said to rile people up.
Regarding opinions. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, as am I. My opinion of you is that you are mostly negative about gaming. You nitpick everything in every article you go in then you get mad when I ask you if you even enjoy gaming anymore? If it was just one game I'd say fair enough but you hate on anything anime related, you hate on most PlayStation exclusives, you hate on multiplayer stuff. I was not trying to troll you when I said take a break. I stopped gaming for a decade during my twenties. I lived overseas and traveled to a bunch of countries. It was a great time and when I settled down it reignited my interest. Sometimes people just need to step away from something for a little while.
If I'm wrong then please correct me. What games are you super excited for this year?
Total troll 🤣🤣🤣
Zelda series: over 136 million
Fallout series: well over 65 million (near 200 million if you include the mobile game)
Elder scrolls: 60 million
Spiderman: 33 million (included in console bundle)
..... Somehow you're a troll if you suggest Spiderman 2 isn't clearly the likely most popular and received title to come.
@KaijuKaiser looking forward to Atlas Fallen, Lies of P, maybe starfield, Lords of the Fallen, and FF 16 for the rest of this year. Beyond that though we know really zero coming on the horizon from PlayStation or much else really aside from the too little too late live service stuff.
I enjoy PlayStation exclusives and have never owned another console since PS1 era. 100% completed GOW 2, horizon 2, and Ghost. Loved returnal. In fact I've literally tried every playstation exclusive in the last two generations except for ratchet and clank.
This is what I'm saying man. It's OK to enjoy something and still see room for improvement or be able to call out BS trends on the platform or in game design at large.
@KundaliniRising333 Alright, fair enough. I'll man up and say sorry for assuming all that about you. Maybe I wasn't being fair. I didn't care for the repetitive quests in Spiderman either. I love the story and gameplay though.
I honestly didn't call Doublecell a troll though. That was Rukkz. I was simply asking Doublecell if he is a troll.
@KaijuKaiser I too apologize. I'm an environmental scientist. Most of my working life is spent investigating and reporting on the destruction our existence has wrought on the planet. I can admit it has made me a bit cynical and critical in terms of how I analyze the world over all. Even the fun aspects.
So my bad.
@Titntin Sorry I said "announced" but meant scheduled. It's not tribalism, it's predictive marketing. I was telling Dezzy for months that Starfield would be delayed past June because Sony was going to do Spidey2 for "Holiday 2023" and MS would want their heaviest hitter to compete against it for holday attention. So then they announced Sept, a litter earlier than I thought but it made sense to maybe get it in before the Spidey rush. But then (not announced but) Sony seems to then be aligning Spidey for Sept as well. Maybe they were planning Sept all along and that's why Starfield went with that (since Spidey 1 was Sept)
Point is, no tribalism, I've been predicting the head to head strategy for these "system sellers" competing for months and months.
@NEStalgia Then maybe a correct comment would have been that it's 'covienient that MS delayed their flagship title to when people are expecting Spiderman2'
After all, the only corp who have changed their release date is MS, Sony have not even announced theirs, so Sony didn't conveniently do anything at all, and I'd suggest that painting this news in that light initially says tons about where your head is at.
If you dont think triballism informs much of what you write, then you are entitled to think that, but I wander if you even know what your writting if that's the case, as you are the last person I'd seek an impartial view from.
To each their own I guess.
If you think both companies aren't looking over each other's shoulder to figure out their scheduling based on where the other is expected to schedule, particularly for the big holiday sellers, I've got a bridge to sell you. Of COURSE they are. That's the foundation of corporate espionage. (or in modern MS v Sony just trading documents around the FTC to find out )
I don't do fanboy tribes. I do take note of which company is most or least trying to screw customers at any given time and look at them from that angle, but which company that is changes with the years. I'm not in any "camp" but at times being in no "camp" is viewed as being in the "other" camp by people that are themselves firmly in one camp.
@Dezzy70 Big game, yes. Switch Pro, no. It's been 6 years, time to move on. To a Switch 2 that basically acts as a Switch Pro, see Xbox Series X/S which seems like are never going to be next gen, just Xbox One X Pro. Switch had better battery life, Lite and OLED, next is time for MOAR POWER!! And again, I'm ok w/ dual ports for a year or 3 but by year 4 it needs new games, see PS5 which is almost ready to move on to "next gen" status now that GoW:R has released. starting w/ HFW:BS and Spiderman 2. To be on topic. 😉
@KidBoruto Thanks for all the links, did not know that was a thing. Or I probably did but forgot. Guess I'll stop waiting for it to be announced then. 😂
@Grumblevolcano Neither of those is how you spell Prime 4. 😁 Don't you think we deserve SM Galaxy 2 remastered before we get another MP game remastered? SMG was released what, 2 or 3 Christmases ago, and MP1 just released. Yeah, I'm still hung up on that Mario three pack years later. Hopefully whatever we gt this holiday feels less incomplete. ie MP should have been the trilogy, Mario should have been a 4-pack, or two 2 -packs. But I am expecting something announced in June for sure. Maybe "Nintendo Land" Remastered. 😝
@themightyant A new 3D Mario being saved for Switch 2 makes the most sense, as long as they launch Switch 2 in September. 😎
@rjejr It's a plot thing, if Prime 4's story continues on from Prime 3's ending I think it's likely they want Prime 1-3 on Switch before Prime 4 launches. So I figure they'd do something like 1 of these 2 outcomes:
Outcome 1 (gap of around 6 months)
Outcome 2 (gap of around 3 months)
@Grumblevolcano Well you've given this some thought, and it all makes sense, so since this is Nintendo I'll guess we never get 2 or 3 remastered, we just get Prime 4 on Switch 2. Or, they are waiting for 2+3 in a bundle for $70 on Switch 2 before MP4. Whatever makes the least sense.
I'm a little nonchalant b/c even though I've played 1, 2 and 3 I have no desire to play 4 as that series has past it's expected life expectancy for me, I'd rather play a new Bioshock or System Shock. I need more these days than what the MP games offer.
I do realize it's a popular series and will sell well so I follow the news. Who knows, maybe they'll improve it enough, like BotW over Sykward Sword which put me to sleep on numerous occasions, that I'll want it. They did scrap it once and start over so maybe it will be good. 🤷♂️
@get2sammyb Sony already leaked it with that Australia advert anyway, right? It said spring 2023, which in Aus is Sept time. This doesn't feel like some super exciting leak. And they can still do the fancy trailer with the end being a reveal, number by number, as they always do, when the date is actually more set in stone. And people will still get hyped for it
@rjejr OMG I just assumed "MP remastered" was the trilogy. That's ONE Game Cube remaster for $40? $120 for the set spanning years if they do it? They're not the Nintendo of Iwata. They're not even the Nintendo of Yamauchi. It's like the Nintendo of Warren Buffet.
I want Zelda, I want Pikmin, I was going to buy Prime remastered when I thought it was all 3, but not for one..... It's getting harder and harder to buy things on Nintendo.
@themightyant While I do understand that Starfield will have alot more gameplay value in terms of time and depth, I'm just not as invested into Bethesda games as I am anything Marvel, Spider-Man, or superhero themed.
@IAmAshCohen17 I rarely touch my Xbox One anymore and I just don't have the free time these days to play more than one game a month sadly.
@rjejr I recommend signing up for a free account with PSPrices.com. You can get free email alerts for when the Ultimate Edition bundle goes on sale digitally .
You also can just buy Spider-Man Remastered PS5 inside of Miles Morales PS5, only costs an extra $20 USD.
@KidBoruto that’s fair enough
@KidBoruto Thanks. I already played some of Spiderman on PS4, borrowed it from my library for a couple of weeks for my kid to play it, they finished it, and I bought MM for $30 so I think I'm good until Spiderman 2. Not like I have time to play it anyway, finishing up HFW before BS, still own Ghost of Tsushima I never started, Zelda TotK pre-ordered, then Pikmin 4 in July, and I still need to play GoW Ragnarok. I find 1 y😁ear late is the sweet spot for price and not waiting too long.
@NEStalgia "OMG I just assumed "MP remastered" was the trilogy."
@uptownsoul Weird flex, but okay. I think Starfield has more to prove and we should all be cautiously optimistic. I have zero doubts Spider-Man 2 will be a stellar game. I'm not a pre-ordering type of gamer but if I had to pre-order a game, and could only pre-order one of these, I know which one I'd choose.
@rjejr No worries! Also I can't highly recommend both Ghost of Tsushima and God of War: Ragnarok enough...
If I had to choose between both games, I'd start off with Ghost of Tsushima first.
@KidBoruto Well I'll be playing Ghost of T. before GoW:R b/c I own GoT and the upgrade to the Directors Cut, but not the PS5 edition b/c I kept reading it wasn't worth the extra $10, which I paid for the DC so I can pet a monkey on an island. If the upgrade goes on sale for $5 before I play it I may bite. GoW probably a Black Friday purchase this year though I still need to see what Nintendo has planned for the holiday. Though w/ Zelda and Pikmin I'm not sure what else I would want besides a new, not a remaster, 3D Mario game. It's been 6 years.
@rjejr Iki Island is alot more expansive than you think, trust me it's well worth the extra $10.
@KidBoruto Iki Island
I've always wondered about that. Pushsquare kind of promoted it as "petting zoo island" but I always assumed there was more to it than that. Maybe I'll find out some day. still have Kingdom Hearts 3 halfway installed on my PS5. Now that I have a new extra SSD maybe I should finish it and play it. I've played KH 1 & 2 and I own a collection on PS4 but I still don't think I own 2.8. Need to go back and check someday. But I may just play 3 and call it a day.
Eidt: KH3, not KH 4, that email is going to read weird. 😂
@rjejr Oh Iki Island is definitely more than just a "petting zoo".
It's an additional 20 hours of rich story and gameplay.
@KidBoruto 20 HOURS?!?! Thought it was going to be like 5. Guess I better get busy. Right after I get busy w/ all of my other games.
Oh, and sorry this reply is a week later, I went away w/ family and was avoiding everything email related.
@rjejr 5-10 hours if you only play the story, but if you're like me and want to 100% Iki Island and the map, it's closer to 15-20 hours.
Maybe 10-15 hours if you follow a guide/don't waste time on random encounters.
@KidBoruto Wasting time is what I do, I need to explore every nook and cranny. It's why I'm 120 hours into HFW and I skipped hunting grounds, melee pits and strike, I just need to light every fire, it's a map addiction.
@rjejr You'll definitely get your money's worth with Iki Island then!
Haha, I'm also guilty of doing that with every game.
@KidRyan You changed your name, took me a second to realize. Think I'll remember, though now I'll always be thinking of you as that kid w/ the kart racer game rather than the anime fighter. I always read Boruto as Naruto. 😂
@rjejr Haha to be fair, I've never watched or read Boruto. I'm definitely more of a Naruto fan.
Ryan is actually my real life name btw.
@KidRyan If you're going to gift the $3.99/m, might as well use your real name. 👍
@rjejr I just honestly don't care if people know it, and prefer being called that over an online name.
Btw, I paid for a 1 year plan. It's cheaper than paying monthly.
@KidRyan That was nice of you gifting the 1y. 👍
My real name is Robert, and I've never gone by that IRL or online. Bob, Bobby, Rob, but mostly my last name b/c I became best friends w/ another Bob in HS and that was that. Also both my of my sisters were almost always called by our last name, I think it's a New York City thing. Online I went by rjejr b/c those are my initials and I like palindromes. Started doing that in FF7 or whatever game let us put in our own name. Except Link, Link is always Link. Names are weird. Being assigned 1 before you are born then having to use it for 100 years is even weirder. 🤷♂️
@rjejr Ah no you misunderstand, I was saying that I bought myself a 1 year Supporter plan to use for me.
If you go to the Supporter page it gives you the option of monthly subscription, or pay a little less for 1 year.
Not much male variations I can do with Ryan thankfully haha.
@KidRyan Let's see, for Ryan there's uh ... um. Ri-Ri? Re-Re? Yeah, I see what you mean.
I, well my wife and I, named our oldest "London" and they're 20+ now and they've never gone by anything other than London. Well on Discord they go by Lemmy - 1 of Bowsers kids I think, not the lead singer of Motorhead - but spoken it's always been London.
@rjejr There is RyRy, but unsure if anyone IRL ever called me that as a child.
@KidRyan You can only call yourself RyRy as a toddler, or maybe if you had a baby sister. Nobody over 5 should ever say RyRy. Well maybe if you're a billionaire rapper but that's about it. 😂
