Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer borrows more villains

Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer borrows more villains

The upcoming Amazing Spider-Man 2 will feature screen-time with at least three iconic Spidey villains: Electro, Green Goblin, and Rhino. But naturally, the game adaptation will add a few more to the mix, for the sake of boss battle variety if nothing else. A new trailer shows some more members of Spidey's gallery that the web-head will have to deal with in the Beenox game.

The Amazing Spider-Man coming to Vita

Better late than never? The Amazing Spider-Man game from Beenox released on nearly every platform imaginable when the corresponding film came out in 2012--except for Vita. Activision is making up for that omission next month.

On November 19, The Amazing Spider-Man will be available on Vita. It'll be $39.99. The handheld version is based on the console original, maintaining the "same spirit" while adding Vita-specific features.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 game announced, coming 2014

Beenox, Activision's go-to developer of Spider-Man games, is working on a tie-in game for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Coming spring 2014, alongside the film, the sequel promises to offer "more abilities, more upgrades, more of everything" than the first game offered. Speaking at New York Comic Con, executive producer Stephane Gravel promised that "we're not retelling the story from the movie. We're telling our own unique side-story," one that will include characters from the first game and "new classic characters from the Marvel universe."

Amazing Spider-Man swings onto PC in August

Amazing Spider-Man swings onto PC in August

It was casually mentioned during E3 that Beenox's swing 'em up The Amazing Spider-Man would be coming to PC as well as consoles, but oh how easily dreams and reality merge during that weird week. How splendid, then, to hear that it is indeed coming via Steam in August.

The Amazing Spider-Man preview

The Amazing Spider-Man preview

It's unfortunate that The Amazing Spider-Man is titled as such, because it's inevitable that not-so-clever journalists like myself will go for the obvious headline: "The Bot-So-Amazing Spider-Man." While Beenox's latest effort has a lot of interesting ideas, it doesn't go above what you'd expect from a rushed movie license game.

Amazing Spider-Man trailer runs atop a bus

Amazing Spider-Man trailer runs atop a bus

The true joy of being Peter Spiderman is, one imagines, skittering freely about New York City, swinging, running and leaping from building to wall to bus roof. Developer Beenox is trying to capture this feeling in its movie tie-in game The Amazing Spider-Man, a new trailer shows, with an context-sensitive system dubbed 'Web Rush.'

Amazing Spider-Man pre-order bonuses detailed

Amazing Spider-Man pre-order bonuses detailed

The Amazing Spider-Man holds the rare distinction of being a superhero movie licensed game that actually looks pretty good. We're still going with "cautiously optimistic," but if the good buzz has convinced you to pre-order the game, Activision has detailed the playable characters you can snag for doing so.

The Amazing Spider-Man preview

The Amazing Spider-Man preview

There's good reason to be skeptical of The Amazing Spider-Man. Because it's a licensed movie game, it inherently draws suspicion. But there's even more reason for doubt: it comes from Beenox, whose last game (Spider-Man: Edge of Time), was critically panned. Even worse: this game comes mere months after the release of the last game--and is far more ambitious to boot. So how are we supposed to expect that this new release from Activision isn't just a cash cow?

By throwing Edge of Time under a bus, of course.

Amazing Spider-Man supports Move on PS3

Amazing Spider-Man supports Move on PS3

Spider-Man is one of our more kinetic superheroes, usually felling foes with a mixture of quick wit and acrobatic moves. So for The Amazing Spider-Man, based on the upcoming movie of the same name, it only makes sense that the game will incorporate the PlayStation 3's motion controller, the Move.

Amazing Spider-Man features playable Stan Lee

Amazing Spider-Man features playable Stan Lee

All of the trailers and promotional materials surrounding The Amazing Spider-Man indicate a darker, moodier Spidey epic. The game tie-in, on the other hand, seems to be running in the other direction as pure comic book spectacle. How else do you explain the presence of the running gag "supervillain" Rhino?

Amazing Spider-Man has taken another turn for the weird, as Stan Lee has revealed he'll be a playable character.

Open-world web-slinging swing 'em up The Amazing Spider-Man is wall-crawling into stores on June 26, publisher Activision has announced, and I've run out of Spider-words. A new trailer has... skittered? out too, showing off developer Beenox's take on classic Spidey villain The Rhino.

Amazing Spider-Man versus robots: the VGA trailer

Amazing Spider-Man versus robots: the VGA trailer

Do you love Spider-Man? Hate robots? Perfect! The debut trailer for Beenox's Amazing Spider-Man game adaptation has a lot of robots. So many robots. Shown at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, the trailer shows off your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man going against a gigantic robot in the middle of New York City.

Oddly, the VGA trailer doesn't show off much of the open-world swinging shown off to Comic-Con attendees earlier this year. Don't worry, Spider-Man does more than fight robots in the game--you just won't see that in this trailer.
