While entering the Earth’s atmosphere, his spacecraft suddenly fails and starts to break up, causing Spidy to crash-land on the strange planet, with his craft scattered across forests, throughout ponds and into dark caves.

    so tired of all the xbox 720 rumors…..i think its time for you to address some of the speculations major nelson. Surely you kno something about the xbox! you are da major …so drop something exclusive for us today! lol

    • The Dukenator

      The Xbox 720 is the PS4.

    • xLoCk 0nx

      Major doesn’t have the choice to reveal anything about it. All will become clear next month when they reveal it, and more in June at E3.

    lol….man…i been hearing it will be always connected online…but who cares tho…im always online now? i mean wtf….if you cant affort online..get a xbox 360 or ps3…this is the next generation!

      Its not that always being connected is an issue for me. What happens when live will no longer be availible for the 720 or whateva it’s called as i like to go back sometime and replay those games. Then what your left with a box a handful of games that can’t play cause live is no longer supported? ya that makes a good deal of sense. If that’s the case i would rather suffer and get the PS4.

          So were you starved of oxygen at birth or dropped on your head just after?

        • ryder4life22187

          not afraid of change. Just not willing to shell out that kinda cash and wind up with an expensive paper weight. You wouldn’t buy a 40,000 dollar car and find out in a couple of years that they stopped producing gas and wind up with just a car and know means to use it for travel.

    Wow, thanks for the great comments about the game, guys.

    • ungeheier

      The game is probably at the right price-point, but I cant get past the controls of this game. I have a HUGE feeling I’d stop playing out of frustration. I dont want/need more frustration in my life, so it’s a pass for me.

      • http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/blog.php?u=324759 Tylerh1701

        Hmmm…controls for a game like this really do need to be precise. I have the demo queue’d up for later, but it’s discouraging to hear it doesn’t control great.

        • ungeheier

          Try it out. Concept seems fun. It could totally be me that’s having the issue. Others might not.

          Basically there’s an area to push a block into water so you can jump onto it. I failed too many times to care what was beyond that water.

  • xLoCk 0nx

    Sounds vaguely similar to Toejam and Earl!

  • Fred

    The game was interesting, but I found the controls not quite as tight as I would like. Some places required me to jump at a very specific spot, resulting in a ton of repeated attempts to get by. Once it started mixing in the need to fire the web at things, as well as time jumps, it just because a bit too frustrating for me. I ended up giving up before reaching the end of the demo.

    It’s too bad, because the game looked otherwise pretty nice.
