Preordering The Amazing Spider-Man = Stan Lee and a Rhino!!

If you are fans of both the Spider-Man movies as well as their video game counterparts, then I am sure you already know all about The Amazing Spider-Man game that is set to be released on June 26th. Well, if you are actually a dedicated fan of Spider-Man then you are probably going to be preordering this game, right? If so, then you have a lot of pretty swag preorder incentives to look forward to!

There are actually two main preorder options for this game. The first is to order the game through GameStop‘s traditional preorder route. This would mean laying down a 5 dollar advanced payment and then paying the rest when the game actually comes out. If you choose to do this, then you will be given the “Rhino Challenge.” This will allow you to actually play as Rhino, who is essentially a big gray beast with a massive horn and a very attractive face. You can go around smashing and killing things to your heart’s content with this African destruction machine!

The second preorder option is through Amazon. If you reserve a copy of the game through this method, you will be allowed to play as the infamous Stan Lee. And this is no ordinary Stan Lee, but a Stan Lee blessed with Spider-Man abilities! For those of you who are unaware, Stan Lee is pretty much the father of all comic book super heroes.

Overall, these seem like some pretty good incentives to go out and buy a copy of the game! I can’t say that I will be preordering this game for sure, but I am likely to pick up a copy sometime later on down the road.

So what are your opinions on this new Spider-Man game? If you are going to preorder it, which route do you plan to take? Let me know in a comment!


Was I Right, or Was I Right?

I’m actually not so sure. Today [Prototype2] came out, and as none of you will remember, I did my very first post about the [Prototype] series. To sum it up, I said [Prototype] sucked, but it has potential as a series, just as Assassin’s Creed sucked, but turned into a great series. I’m not hyped enough about [Prototype2] to run down to Gamestop and buy it today, but I’ll definitely get it sometime this week. In the mean time, here’s a trailer for [Prototype2]:



I have really high hopes for the game after seeing this trailer, because it proves that a huge effort was made to insert a more interesting story into Prototype 2. I also really like the song choice it goes really well with the trailer.

What do you think of Prototype 2, newly released games, or video games in general? Let me know in a comment!

A Quick Review of the PSVita!

I know that the PSVita has been out for a while now, but I just recently got a chance to play it for the first time. I was at the mall when I decided to make a Game Stop trip, and the first thing I saw was when I walked through the doors was the PSVita. In fact, that is all I saw. Sony went all out on their advertising, and made it pretty much impossible to go into any gaming retail store and ignore their product.

The first thing I noticed was just how big the console is. It is not necessarily bulky, just big. I don’t think this is really a downside because it allows the device’s display to be much larger than the older handheld Playstation consoles. The next thing I saw was the second analog stick they added. I think that this is one of the biggest improvements because it allows the handheld device to be more like a real gaming controller.

The graphics were improved as well. I only played one game, Gravity Rush, but I thought that the game did a good job of showing the full potential of the PSVita. I don’t think I will actually be buying this console as I am content with holding on to my original PSP, but who knows, I might change my mind later on.

What are your opinions on the PSVita? Do you like it? Do you hate it? Let me know in a comment!
