Oh, it's alternate suit wishlist time? Finally.



This is just the tip of the iceberg.

You have the default Ben Reilly suit, but not the alternate Spider Suit?

Aside from suits from the comics (I'd like to get the first Spider-Armor and the suits from Identity Crisis) I'd love it if Insomniac had a suit-builder akin to an improved Sunset's character customization.

The Superior and Future Foundation costumes look amazing!
Very true. Superior is actually my favorite take on the traditional spider costume and future foundation is a great alt, much better than spider armor or neon suits and stuff.

They're both really clean designs and I really hope superior makes it in the game if it does it will be my choice.

This new Electric Playground interview with Bryan Intihar is the best one yet:

https://youtu.be/cN9QlE3ykJ4

Near the end, he says "We have a great cast and Peter is just one of many, many characters we have in the game. It's a big, big cast".

After that, he says "We have a lot of classic villains and we have a lot of newcomers as well".

I'm telling you guys, this could quite possibly be the best superhero game ever made.

Maybe it's because I never got deeply invested in the comics and my Spidey love developed because of the original Raimi movie but I feel Insomniac's suit here is the best I've ever seen. It's striking and legit cool. It makes me want to wear a hoodie in the same style and I absolutely can't wait to be Spider-man.

It's fucking awesome. Not sure why the white bothers anyone. It stands out more and, again, makes it more striking. I don't need a story reason for it and if anything, that kind of dampens it because it means there's probably time dedicated to it not being white or something I dunno. I'll be using it exclusively in free-roam anyway unless they manage to make something even better.

I'm rambling because I'm excited and just want more news and footage!

Yeah it's one of the best for sure.

kinda blows my mind how anyone can hate this suit:

So if the speculations are true and Spidey gets corrupted by Mr Negative, has anyone tried to make a mock-up of what a negative-Spidey could look like? Best I can do with my non-existant PS skills is this:




That... doesn't look great :p

I hope that Insomniac does what they do in the game Marvel Heroes and gives you different voice actors and some new animations depending on what suit you have on.

In that game, Regular Spider-Man, Symbiote Spider-Man, and Superior Spider-Man all have different voice actors and voice acting. In the case of Superior Spider-Man, he has a new personality since the character is technically different. Hell, throw Spider-Gwen in there!

This is probably hard (and distracting to the player) to do during the story missions, but would be a neat extra (and reason to keep playing the game) if they let you select certain skins only during free roaming. That's a fair trade off for getting new versions of Spidey with new voice acting.

More blue and red and we have an awesome negative costume here.

It has absolutely nothing to do with the symbiote, and the symbiote isn't part of this story.

The White Spider is something that occurs in the story.

*ninja smoke bomb*

HEY WAIT WHAT DON'T LEAVE US. Why capitalize "The White Spider?" It really must be a big deal then, especially since they're keeping tight-lipped about it. Or am I reading too much into this? I can't think if what else it might be, though, if not the symbiote... perhaps it's just symbolic (yay puns) of some personal development of sorts? Hmm... Really curious.

Oh, it's alternate suit wishlist time? Finally.



This is just the tip of the iceberg.

Bag-Man is required as usual, the Big Time neon suit is great, the What If? Assassin Spider-man suit, Noir is great. the Raimi movie wrestling outfit.

Since Bluth got everything else.
Assassin Outfit


1602

Damn good choices! I love the Homecoming suits and the first should satisfy my need for the underwebs. Superior Mk. 2's probably one of, if not the coolest design ever. It just looks so damn good, especially with the asymmetrical webbing. That's probably my favorite part of it. OG 2099's definitely up there too, which is why it sucks so much that Miguel's running around with that All-New All-Different version. Bleurgh. I wouldn't have minded the rigid lines, but they had to split the suit's colors up too. I love the Big Time suit so much, and I'd love it even more if it actually worked as intended in a game. Although, it would be a bit of a waste since only one mode would really be needed. I think Captain Universe would look out of place in the game, buuut, damn if I don't love that suit. The Future Foundation suit's another damn good design. It would be really cool too if we could switch between the black and white variants. The assassin suit's one of my all time favorites. So damn sleek and badass. Real shame he's dead now...

As for my picks in addition to the ones previously posted:

I would prefer (only slightly, though) the 2008 Noir suit, but the trench coat would probably make it difficult to work with.



I love the Superior Mk. 1 too. Somewhat small but really effective changes from the classic suit. And come on, black and red's always good.



Spider-Punk is a must too. Hobbie needs to get more exposure so that Marvel will fix that stupid mistake of theirs where they introduced this really interesting new version of Spider-Man but decided to not give him a book. Gimme my Spider-Punk, Marvel! *shakes fist* Also, hey, another African-American Spider-Man would be pretty damn cool. Just saying.



The Identity Crisis suits (from left to right: Dusk, Ricochet, Hornet, Prodigy) would be great too, except for Hornet. Not a fan of that one. Dusk... is a'ight. Ricochet and Prodigy, though, fucking fantastic.



Bit disappointed nobody mentioned the Iron Spider yet...



The Ends of the Earth armor's great too. My favorite among the armors, for sure.



This one's fan-made, so it's definitely not happening, but after seeing a cosplayer bring it to life, I would sooo love to see it:



And last, but definitely not least, this sexy beast from The Amazing Spider-Man 2:



The movie might not have been great, but the suit was fucking perfect.

Yeah it's one of the best for sure.

kinda blows my mind how anyone can hate this suit:


Yeah, okay, it took me an entire year but I'm sold on the suit now. I used to strongly dislike it, especially when I first saw it. I was so damned hype when the trailer started cause I knew it was Spider-Man, then it was as if my hype got hit by a brick wall and dropped dead cause I really, really didn't like the suit. My reason was mostly that it was too much and felt tacked on, like an unneeded change that didn't really blend well with the already perfect red and blue combo. Plus the arm things are weird.

But I'm starting to love it now. I know I already love the boots, though.

Yeah, it looks amazing. I think the only thing that looks particularly different from regular Spidey costumes is the white on his forearms/hands, which kind of reminds me of bones. But I've warmed to it and I like how this little detail makes the suit distinct and Insomniac's own little take on the character.

This is an excellent interview. I like his enthusiasm, and they keep referencing the White Spider so I'm interest to see what it means.

So you get a fat GAME OVER screen if you don't press L1 here?


That's what it's sounding like, or maybe something where you go back to last checkpoint or whatever.

I mean, technically Spider-man has a no-killing rule for himself. And pretty adamant that no one dies in Amazing Spider-man in the lead up to Superior Spider-man.

They have a system in place that pulls him automatically back before he falls to his death. No Game Over screen.

Fantastic interview! Thanks for sharing! You can just feel the passion and love from Bryan. I love him. It is so amazing and crazy exciting that my all-time favorite character might finally get the video game he deserves.

Also: Holy fucking shit, guys. I just noticed. While Spidey is on the chopper, particularly during the time when he's ripping off that panel thing and as the chopper is going into free fall, Spidey's suit is rippling. Like, holy fuck. That attention to detail. I saw the suit's stretch marks (?) while he was perched on that beam and how it disappeared as he stretched himself to shoot some webs, but Jesus Christ, this is even crazier.

And I don't know if it's a stupid question, but I'm not too informed about the graphical stuff, but will that be something that we might not see (or at least much of) on the regular PS4?

For alternate outfits, just give me that classic Raimi suit for an authentic pizza stealing experience:


That suit is such an eyesore.

It's an automatic, contingency animation. From the way Bryan Intihar presented it, the game prevents those deaths on its own.

Not sure why there's targeting there, unless you can manipulate what contingency animation will occur.

This is my one worry. Having control taken from the player at these moments is gonna feel weird if we're already trying to move on to the next thug.

I would love to see Superior Octopus as an alt costume or even as a villain.


Oh yeah, forgot to mention this. Also haven't seen this sweet cover yet. Nice. It's kind of amusing how Otto continues to have fantastic design after fantastic design. Granted, the first version of Superior Spider-Man wasn't that big of a different design from the classic look, but still.

Definitely wouldn't want him as a villain, though. "Superior Octopus," not Octavius. If he's in as Doc Ock, cool. This version? Nah. Keep it out. I don't think I would want to see them do Superior Spider-Man, as I'd rather they do original stories or at most stuff inspired by the stories from the comics. And they'd have to go all in if they want to do Superior and make an entire game around it, if you ask me. And that wouldn't be such a great idea since they want to tell Peter's story as much as Spider-Man's.

in regards to traversal and giving the player as much freedom as possible:

As with Ratchet & Clank, as with Sunset, as with any game we've ever made, we're really, really focused on mechanics and making sure that whatever you do feels good. Whether it's swinging around the city, running up the side of a building, launching off of something, it's gotta feel good. It's gotta feel effortless and, at the same time, provide some sort of challenge for the player without feeling frustrating for him or her.

omg i need it now

Make it black and it just loses its striking visual fidelity within the suit and in the shade of the skyscrapers. I know it's how it has always been but it just doesn't read well with proper lighting imo.

I wouldn't balk at it if it were black, but seeing it like this has made me realize just how much better it really is. Especially with the added white trim at the wrists/hands and ankles/feet.

If it were outlined in black, I wonder if that would please everyone...?

We did it!

Spidey won IGN People's Choice Award.

The final counts were incredibly close: Marvel's Spider-Man narrowly edged out Super Mario Odyssey for the People's Choice Award. Not much further down the list, EA's Anthem picked up a cool third place while God of War rounded out the game's with the most votes, finishing off with fourth place overall.

Pretty crazy that Spider-Man even beat Mario.

Well done, Spidey fans!
