By Alice O'Connor, Jun 27, 2012 2:30pm PDT

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 to Steam in August.

The Amazing Spider-Man preview

By Andrew Yoon, Jun 05, 2012 12:00pm PDT

The Amazing Spider-Man preview

By Andrew Yoon, Apr 16, 2012 12:00pm PDT

There's good reason to be skeptical of The Amazing Spider-Man. Because it's a licensed movie game, it inherently draws suspicion. Based on an early hands-off demo of the game, I'll say that Beenox has a chance of doing right by gamers.
